About Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back's Crawl:
About this Project:
This collection of 4K, 2.35 recreations and tutorials of Star Wars crawls in Adobe CS6 and After Effects is meant to provide a reference for other filmmakers to learn to produce the logo and crawls for their own projects. The WMM is intended for homemade movies, while the After Effects version is intended for professional quality movies. Additionally, with the text preserved, Star Wars analysts are able to interpret the timings, story, and meanings behind this famous piece of movie history.
I had learned a lot about the crawl while working on this, with numerous details discovered while rendering these. The Empire Strikes Back crawl covers a wider field than others. Only even numbered episodes have words in all caps. Attack of the Clones is the only film to pan up after the crawl. The text has an average of 17 lines each. In a sense, the crawl has become a piece of meaningful art to me, almost like poetry.
