Before my shame I had a chance to work on Episode One, while I was working at ILM, I was offered the opportunity to be an extra for the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi. I wasn't sure of exactly what was being shot, but I signed up and one Saturday, several dozen LucasFilm, Lucas Digital, and Skywalker Sound employees gathered in the lot between C- and A-Building at Kerner Blvd. Already there were tailors and curators from the Archives with crates of costumes, a mixture of re-created and original costumes from the first three films.
Luck would have me wedged into a size-smaller Imperial Officer's uniform from the original RotJ, boots and all!

It was "blink and you'll miss it" moment at the end of the film, during the celebration scene on Coruscant. So much so, that I have never been able to point myself out in any of the VHS or DVD re-releases. But just recently, I have been able to get my hands on still from the Blue-Ray release of the film.

Hopefully, I will be remembered for being a few pixels large in an added scene then my real contribution to the Star Wars Universe.

Hey there. Remember me? You critiqued the first sequence of an animation I was working on that stars characters named Hallber and Helen. I was wondering if I could get your thoughts on the second sequence. I know already that I should fix the timing or pacing a bit, but I also wanted to know what else you think.

ok!
i think the intro animation showing the entrance to the Pier is a little too long.
the framing for the next shot, where we see Hallber and Helen walking has them right on top of each other in frame.  i suggest a more 3/4 view for this shot.
at 0:20 after Hallber asks Helen what do we do now, it's the same issue...Helen should be more SCREEN RIGHT.
at 1:25, the raising of the ride and then just having a locked-off shot is...well, boring.  i suggest showing Hallber's reaction as they get higher and higher, building the tension, with perhaps some close-ups of the gearing with is being help in place by twigs and wires and maybe even an old squirrel.  show how rickety the ride is or, at least, how it seems to be to Hallber.
the next few shots are just locked off ones, looking up at the ride.  i suggest having the camera placed at the axis of the ride looking down, tracking H&H's pod, seeing the background swirling by as a blur.
the reaction shot at 1:40-1:43 goes on a bit too long.
i think instead of the ride coming down gently as you have it, as the rat pulls the lever, maybe some gears pop out of the mechanism and the ring with the pods slam to the ground.
of course, this is terrifying for Hallber but for Helen, it's exactly what she expected the ride to do.
the vomit gag could be a little longer and more...well, disgusting. ;)


how's that?  sorry for taking so long to reply, but i haven't had much time outside of work to visit dA lately.
