    Last meeting we talked about Empire Uncut recreating a scene from The Empire Strikes Back to add to the overall movie. I have picked a bunch of scenes containing multiple people. Take a look at them and vote on EACH and EVERYONE you think the RMFF should be involved with creating.

    After I pick one we have 30 days to create it and turn it in. I was thinking we could record our clips either in November or before October's meeting.

    Scene #1 C-3PO on Chewie's Back

    Scene #2 Chewie chokes Lando

    Scene #3 Falcon Escapes Hoth Base

    Scene #4 Apologies Accepted Captain Needa
    http://www.starwarsuncut.com/empire/288

    Scene #5 Han just put in Carbonite
    http://www.starwarsuncut.com/empire/386

    Now these scenes are first come first serve. So vote for 2 or 3 of your favorites and if the top choice is taken we will go with the next choice.

    Apparently there's a lot of choking in the galaxy far, far away.
    And, nerf, that's why I voted for that scene!

    Ditto! We gotta get nerf and his whitey-Lando in there somewhere. Any other Lando ones open, Darklord49?

    I believe you can claim a scene that is already claimed. Later, they choose the one they want to use.

    Apparently there is a limit to the number claims per scene, though.

    Is this project still alive? I think we talked about filming it at/after the October meeting...which is this Saturday.

    Alright, peeps! I've decided to take the lead on this and have claimed scene 319 called "Smooth Operator." You can view the scene here (http://www.starwarsuncut.com/empire/319). It's the one where the Falcon arrives at Bespin and Lando walks up to meet them. The scene is 15 seconds and has Lando, Han Solo, Leia, Chewie and C-3PO.

    I'd like to plan on filming this at the Rogers' place during the November meeting. We get 30 days to upload our video, so this gives us 2 weeks of prep and the 2 weeks of editing. Should be plenty of time.

    Nerf, can you be our Lando since you did so well in the trailer? Any volunteers for Leia, Chewie, Han and 3PO? Perhaps Abby wants to be our Princess? There's also a Lobot in the background of the first couple of seconds, if anyone wants to just stand there.

    Grimby, do you have a camera and lights? I can bring those, if we need. Do you have a good way to capture sound?

    Courtney & Shane, would you guys be able to draw up a Falcon as our background? Doesn't have to be fancy. You can check out the web site to see what others have done.

    Let's make this an awesome 15 second video, RMFF! We need to be sure somebody (or everybody's) wearing RMFF logoed gear.

    I can't view the scene because it's already been claimed. Is there a way to unlock it so I can see its extents?

    I'm not sure I can be an 'old smoothie' to a 4 year old. That's just kinda creepy. :p

    Chewy could be someone standing on a step stool holding a brown bath mat. You don't see his face.

    Who has a really cheesy 3PO costume?

    Alas, I do not have lights. Or a camera. Or a high quality mic. If we could borrow a boom mic from someone and hook it up to a mixer, that's all we'd need for sound.

    If it's easier, we could always shoot it against green screen and add in the background in post. All we need is a green sheet.

    It is the day after Halloween -- perhaps there is a cheesy C-3PO 50% off somewhere.

    I'll plan on bringing a camera, microphones and some lights. I don't have a mixer, though, but perhaps we can record several takes and then you can mix it up good, Snoop Grimby!

    I'll see if there if a green screen here somewhere.

    Here's the scene broken down with dialogue and blocking:

    Empire Uncut – RMFF Style!



    Shot 1 (1.5 seconds) – Lobot in background, Lando in foreground, Han walking behind Lando and scratching his head (starts right behind and exits camera left)
    Lando: And who might you be?

    Shot 2 (14.5 seconds) – (L to R: left half of Chewie, Leia, Lando, C-3PO, Han w/ back to camera)
    Leia: Leia.
    Lando: (Lifts Leia’s left hand with his right and kisses it) [Smoothly] Welcome Leia. (Han crosses behind Lando, in front of C-3PO).
    (Leia smiles and looks at Han. Han takes Leia’s hand from Lando in his right).
    Han: Alright, alright. You old, smoothie.
    (Han leads Leia by hand. Leia still smiling looking at Han. Lando looks at Han and then at C-3PO. Han and Leia exit camera right).
    C-3PO: Hello, sir. I am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations. (Lando, smiling, holds his C-3PO’s hand disinterestedly, looks after Han and Leia, lets C-3PO’s hand drop and exits camera right). My facilities are at your… (Chewie also exits camera right with a rowr).

    Cast and crew:

    Grimby - camera, lights, sound, editor, "Best Boy"
    DWRD - camera, lights, sound, director, Han Solo?
    Nerf - Lando

    Jomama, want to be Chewie? Your tall enough and scruffy enough...

    nnay or catz or S__C, want to be Leia?

    Lego, want to be Lobot? You got the shiny noggin' for it.

    Any takers on C-3PO? Shane?
    Anybody else want to be Han Solo or can help with being crew?

    I was thinking of doing this scene in the Film Noir style. Black and White. People wearing jackets or trenchcoats, with fedoras. I was going to wear an RMFF shirt, brown leather jacket and fedora for Han.

    Any other thoughts? I'm totally open to suggestions.

    I still think it would be uber cute if Abby was Leia.

    Jeff might have a mixer we could use.
