Snub Fighter

Above, we are pleased to link this fantastic little editing project by friend of the show (and sometime Atomic Geek) Mark Dury.

I’ll let him explain it in his own words:

I was in the mood to make something silly. Or maybe I just wanted to destroy something beautiful. Either way, the finale from A New Hope ended up getting digitized into my edit suite, and in very short order my suspicions were confirmed: I could make it look like Luke missed his chance to blow up the Death Star. After sifting through the footage I realized there was a treasure trove of moments that could be exploited. Mark Hamill was just so expressive in his role. Sometimes just a quick glance, or the way a phrase was uttered could be put into a completely different context and really change the outcome of the whole sequence.

It isn’t perfect, far from it, but I think it stands up pretty well, and there is plenty in there for the fans to enjoy. Special thanks to Ryan for his input as well. It would have been a mistake to leave Tarkin out. Hope you like it!

I still don’t know how the fuck he cut around the music.

I posted this on Facebook to let friends know about it.

My fiancee’s response (besides liking it, obviously!):

“Most impressive

…. Sorry, was it not time for campy Star Wars quotes?”
