To answer some frequent questions;
-This took about an hour to make.
-I used Final Cut, but AfterEffects and Premiere have all the necessary tools too.
-I got the idea after cutting a trailer for Empire as practice, and was going to use the scene of Vader’s pod opening, then just starting scrolling back and forth over the clip, so the pod opened and shut over and over, and the idea came from there. Amusement comes easily after midnight.
-I know people have copied this. They have my sympathy.
-I might make another – at this point it feels like I can’t really top people’s expectations, but when I come up with something I think is fun, I’ll put it up.
