Finally! Here’s my extra assignment, with colours. You can find the script after the images.
The hangar is buzzing with the last minute activity as the
pilots and crewmen alike make their final adjustments. The
hum of activity is occasionally trespassed by the distorted
voice of the loudspeaker issuing commands. Coupling hoses
are disconnected from the ships as they are fueled. Cockpit
shields roll smoothly into place over each pilot. A signalman,
holding red guiding lights, directs the ships. Luke, a trace
of a smile gracing his lips, peers about through his goggles.
Luke, the Force will be with you.
Luke is confused at the voice and taps his headphones.
EXT. MASSASSI OUTPOST – JUNGLE
All that can be seen of the fortress is a lone guard standing
on a small pedestal jutting out above the dense jungle. The
muted gruesome crying sounds that naturally permeate this
eerie purgatory are overwhelmed by the thundering din of ion
rockets as four silver starships catapult from the foliage
in a tight formation and disappears into the morning cloud
INT. MASSASSI OUTPOST – WAR ROOM
The princess, Threepio, and a field commander sit quietly
before the giant display showing the planet Yavin and its
four moons. The red dot that represents the Death Star moves
ever closer to the system. A series of green dots appear
around the fourth moon. A din of indistinct chatter fills
the war room.
MASSASSI INTERCOM VOICE
Stand-by alert. Death Star
approaching. Estimated time to firing
range, fifteen minutes.
The Death Star slowly moves behind the massive yellow surface
of Yavin in the foreground, as many X-wing fighters flying
in formation zoom toward us and out of the frame.
The second assignment of the Aalto Open University comics course was to draw a piece of the original Star Wars – A New Hope script, using characters from the Tintin universe created by Herge. Original image inked on an A3 Bristol paper, colouring with GIMP. Find the part of the script I was given after the image.
Darth Mitsuhirato and Grand Moff Sponz are scheming.
My script read:
The surface of the Death Star ominously approaches the red planet Yavin.
INT. DEATH STAR – CONTROL ROOM
Grand Moff Tarkin and Lord Vader are interrupted in their discussion by the buzz of the comlink. Tarkin moves to answer the call.
DEATH STAR INTERCOM VOICE
We are approaching the planet Yavin. The Rebel base is on a moon on the far side. We are preparing to orbit the planet.
EXT. YAVIN – JUNGLE
A lone guard stands in a tower high above the Yavin landscape, surveying the countryside. A mist hangs over the jungle of twisted green.
