Episode 3: The Pirate Saga Continues...

Sunday, June 05, 2005
The day before Revenge of the Sith, Waxy reported that a workprint version (with timecodes across every frame) was doing the rounds online. I was interested to see how long it would take pirate copies to turn up in the piracy hotspots in South-East Asia (in this case, in Bali), and after asking friends visiting there last week to have a look for Episode 3, sure enough it was very widely available. However, what I found most interesting (apart from the creative use of graphics for menus and coverart), was the fact that this was still the workprint version, but it had been put through a filter to try and remove the timecodes (which works to a differing extent in different scenes).

Examples:

Episode 3 Still: Blurred Jedi

Episode 3 Still:

For the DVD coverart and amusingly misspelt menu-page, click here.

Oh, and don't bother asking: I don't have Episode 3 available to download or share. (Seriously, the film needs to be seen crystal clear on the biggest screen you can find. Otherwise, what's the point?)
