    Good Ol' Palpy to the Rescue

    I?m sure most of you have heard of my arrival on board the second Death Star. I can assure you that it?s not the grim funeral that people make it out to be. I?m Emperor Palpatine. Yep, that supposedly dark and evil old geezer who enslaved the galaxy. Not quite what you expected, is it?

    Actually, Darth Vader had organized a surprise party for the occasion. I tell you, that man has a heart of gold! The whole staff was cheering me on because I had just returned from receiving the ?Helping Hands to Improve our Neighborhood of Coruscant? award. I had taught the elderly ladies of Coruscant Nursing Home how to change the carburetors in their airspeeders, as well as giving them driving lessons. I have the loveliest picture of us on my nightstand: me surrounded by the group of them wearing their leather jackets and holding their canes up in the air. Aaah, the memories?

    Well, as I was saying, Darth Vader had organized a surprise party for my return. Most thoughtful of him. When I disembarked from my private shuttle my stormtroopers were lined up to cheer me on. All the officers in their matching olive-green uniforms went leaping down the aisle ahead of me, throwing rose petals up in the air (Darth Vader later informed me that they spent weeks practicing with a dance choreographer to get all the twirls and spins right). There were droids spinning in circles on one foot at regular intervals, sending small electrical sparks shooting out like fireworks.

    And after that, the pool party. And what a party it was! While Darth Vader and I were sunbathing some stormtroopers linked arms and began to sing ?Sunshine on my shoulders.? I tell you, it made my heart glow to see everyone getting along and having a good time. Off in the corner the bridge crew was doing the limbo to the Macarena. Some rascal had spiked the Mandalorian Fizz Punch and a everyone was getting a little rowdy. A few stormtroopers were taking joy rides on the miniature rolling messenger droids. Oh, it was a night to remember.

    I?m sure you know the rest of the story. All good things must come to an end, which is why all the lights and comm systems were turned low the next day as everyone got over their hangovers. And Darth Vader and I, of course, got a wonderful tan line.

    What kind of music is everyone putting in their fan films? This is what I plan to put in mine:

    Star Wars Main Theme, Emperor's Theme, "Control" by Traci Lords, Learning About the Force, Qui-Gon's Noble End, Duel of the Fates, "Higher" by Creed, Star Wars Credits, and some more music that I still have to decide.

    What about you?

    One of these things is not like the other...

    How is the Creed song gonna fit in? It doesn't exactly go with the rest. For that matter neither does "Control," but I like that song. I could see how it might fit in if it's utilized properly (i.e., fight scene, action scene, etc.).

    For Shards of Power I'm using mostly Star Wars orchestral. But I'm using some Crystal Method in the trailer. In our other film Highlander: Ascension, we're using just whatever sounds good, regardless of genre.

    At the time, I thought Creed would go good with my ending because I saw it on the Titan A.E. commercial and I thought it would go good with how the main character becomes a hero. And "Control" is for a training sequence.

    I've actually found myself wondering whether anyone has considered using Gregorian chants as part of the scoring....there are some portions of certain chants that at times I think *could* work to establish an appropriate mood, then at other times I'm not quite so I'm just curious as to whether others have bruited about this notion or whether it's just me. ::grin:: By far it wouldn't be the only thing I'd be using, to be sure....but I was merely curious as to the thoughts of others on the matter....

    I will most likely use Carmina Burana for the final fight scene, since everyone is using the (very cool) DOTF music. Maybe I will use that for the final final final battle. Other music I am toying with are sound track music from Full Metal Jacket (very cool) and music from a few CDROM games. I have preedited some lightsaber fight sound effects (lots of swinging and slashing) and then played it along with several types of songs and music to see what fits the best. So far I don't have that perfect match I am looking for, but there are several that will work in case I never find the perfect fight song. Then again, there is always DOTF!

    DOTF is a very good song, but I can't hear it anymore. Everybody ist using it, so I wont use ist in my film (if I'm going to make one). I wont use any double-bladed-lightsaber-scene too.

    I thought of the Music from the Game "Force Commander". Does anyone know, where I can download it (not the 3 tracks LucasArts already published) or how I can extract it from the game?

    I also thought of some Music by Jean Michel Jarre, Hanz Zimmer, Marc Mancina, and something from the Star Trek VI and First Contact Soundtracks. Maybe some Tracks from the Resident Evil Games.
