  1. "I have no set release date in mind, but I'm looking at Spring/early Summer potentially, though, don't hold me to that!" - Me in my January 2018 blog. Oh boy was I right on the "don't hold me to that" part... So, hey guys! It's been over five months since my last entry, so I thought I'd give you all an in-depth update on TPK, and why it's taking so long. Before I explain I just want to make one thing clear: This project is not dead. It's alive, and you will see it this year, I promise. In March I uploaded a new trailer with a release date of "Spring 2018", as I don't need to tell any of you, that release time came and has now gone. Truthfully, I can't give an exact date yet, this is because I simply don't know, and I really don't want to rush anything. I've been working on this film since June last year, and it's been a very busy twelve months. So starting from the beginning... - June 2017: Legacy of the Sith is released, I go straight into production on TPK. Complete the first 3-5 minutes of the film quite quickly. - Late June 2017 - July: I went on holiday for nearly two weeks, and with also visiting family I was away for pretty much a month. No progress on the film. - Late July - end of August 2017: Resume work on the film, around 25 minutes is complete by the end of August. - September 2017: My first semester of my final year at university starts. Open the flood gates to the hell of third year work. - September - November 2017: Consistently balance working on the film and uni work. - November to December 2017: Our film shoot at uni starts, 12 hour exhaustive days. I go straight into the edit of that film after. Still find some time to work on the film. Just arriving on Malachor V. - End of December 2017 - Semester ends! I have about an hour of the film done. First teaser trailer released on Christmas Eve. Go home for Christmas, eat a lot of food. - January 2018 - Return to uni and film work. - February to April 2018: Film work slows down, waiting on lines from actors and my uni work ramping up. I have another film and a 10,000 word dissertation ahead of me all due by May. - April 2018: Film shoot begins. 12-14 hour days shooting, the most exhausting few days of my life. Straight into edit after, deadline is not far away. I also finish my dissertation in this period. - May 2018: All deadlines are handed in. By this point, I have not worked on the film in over a month. FINALLY receive some lines from a voice actor. Back to work on the film. I hit around an hour and 25 minutes. - Late May 2018: Officially wrap SHOOTING on TPK. Begin working on promotional material whilst I wait for lines. - June 2018: As of now, the film is done EXCEPT for lines from voice actors. Every After Effects shot, colour grade, part of the sound mix, etc. is done. All I have to do on my end is plug the lines in when I get them and create the credits sequence. So that's where I am at. As you can see, I have been incredibly busy, but, I've tried my hardest to work on the film where I can. I really can't wait for it to be done so I can start releasing the promotional material (got a couple of nice surprises planned) and then the film itself. If all goes well, and I receive all the lines by the end of July, then the film will be out for AUGUST. But, again, don't hold me to that. Thank you all for bearing with me through this, I promise it'll be worth the wait! Want even more proof it's nearly done? Here's a screen shot from my final mix timeline, once I receive the lines from my actors the next 30-40 mins will be exported and join this timeline below to fill in the gaps. (The film has been edited slightly out of sequence): TL;DR: It's nearly done minus lines from actors.
  2. Currently in the midst of moving house! Will be on and off this site for the next couple of weeks, should be all set up with internet by the end of the first week in July.

    Uncensored Look at my Home Recording Space

    Thought for the briefest moment the script you had up in that pics were lines I had previously sent you for TPK haha Good luck with you next project¬
  4. Think I can finally understand/appreciate the stress filmmakers/game developers go through when wrapping up a series in a way that pleases everyone. Without giving anything away... I don't expect everyone will be satisfied with the ending to TPK, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't proud of it (and the film as whole). Seriously can't wait for everyone to finally see it, I've really tried to give it a bit of a twist I don't think you'll see coming. Here's hoping...

    /end worry.

    [WIP] Selven 2.0

    I think the only explanation for Calo getting off Taris is his line: "I am hard to kill, Lord Malak". A similar line could work for Selven, too.
  6. Halo, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Cyberpunk 2077 and Elder Scrolls VI... damn, not bad, E3...

  7. I’ll have a play round with the pitch later and post the results here. It already does have a lower pitch on it, but it’s not very noticeable.
  8. Yeah, I have the recording still unfiltered, so I can tweak the filter anytime If anyone has any more suggestions regarding the filter, then I’m all ears!
  9. Here it is, everyone. Female Darth Revan reciting the Sith Code:

      Please release "The Sith Code" trailer to the KE VO thread?  Thank you.

  11. Saw it today. Went into it was very low expectations after feeling mixed on TLJ. Can honestly say I thought it was alright. Not amazing by any stretch, and the first hour bored me somewhat, but everything from Kessel onward I found very enjoyable and easy going. I think the Tie Fighter chase through the Kessel Run was my favourite scene. Any excuse to bring back the "Tie Fighter Attack" score is okay with me. Weirdly enough, as the movie went on I felt the guy playing Han (I forget his name) grew more into the role, by the end I could actually see him as Han Solo. Donald Glover absolutely NAILED it as Lando, hope we get to see more of him in the role. As for negatives, not a lot of the humor landed for me. The only scene I found quite funny was Lando's reaction to Qi'ra using one of his capes to put out a fire on the Falcon. I'm not even sure if that was meant to be a funny scene, but it made me chuckle. One or two lines really made me cringe, such as Enfys Nest's unbearably heavy handed foreshadowing about the Rebellion and Han's future role to play in it. I'm interested to see where they go with Maul, I liked the little bit of Duel of the Fates playing over him in his scene. It was cool to see him and for this film and Rogue One to at least acknowledge characters/events from the prequels. I agree that his lightsaber flourish was a little silly, though. Also, what the HELL was with that god awful title card at the start? Seriously, I'm pretty sure I could open After Effects right now and do something better. Overall, not bad, but not something I'll be rushing out to see again. But a fairly enjoyable popcorn flick. 6.5/10
  12. Thanks! Yeah, filter 1 is my favourite, too. the tutorial I followed for it was based on a filter used on Revan's voice in a fan film on YouTube.
  13. As a fellow Brit, I support this. British Revan all the way Anyway, as SH mentioned, I've been tasked with creating the cutscene involving Revan delivering her lines. I plan on starting on that today, hopefully. In the mean time, I've been playing around with some filters for Revan's voice. One was following a tutorial for a Revan filter online, and the others based on several Kylo Ren type voice tutorials. Let me know what you guys think! Filter 1.wav Filter 2.mp3 Filter 3.mp3 Filter 4.mp3
  14. Weird alien? 0_o I'm not sure who you're referring to, could you give a me timestamp to look for it? If I knew which character you were referring to, I could probably tell you what filters (if any) I used for them, which might be of help. I've already sent my submission for Revan to Sith Holocron, but for anyone who's interested, here's my attempt. I recorded various takes for it all in the tone 'my' Revan (from my films) would say. I'm aware my voice is not the most menacing, so I also included a version with the filters applied I use in my projects.
  15. Great stuff man, that impression is near identical to TOR's Revan. Nice work on the Malak filter too, ebmar!
