Going to work for Google

As some of you have already heard via other social media, I have been offered a job working for Google at their headquarters in Mountain View, California. I'm accepting their offer and will start work on November 1st. I'm very excited about this opportunity in a way that I can't easily convey in text. Right now it all feels a little surreal

To do:

Adywan, a Star Wars fan with video-editing skills and way too much free time, has re-edited the original Star Wars film, fixing a wide variety of minor continuity and visual glitches and choosing the best of the Special Edition and original footage (Han shot first, no Jabba scene, etc.).

He also made some more ambitious improvements. Below, check out the amazing job he did improving the pace of the Kenobi v. Vader lightsabre battle. This is what Star Wars: Special Edition should have been.
