“Rada” by Thomas Bergersen + Star Wars: Knights of the Fallen Empire

The original version of this video is incredibly powerful. Set to layered imagery and well-crafted voiceover, this is the kind of Star Wars story everyone wants to see. I wanted to try setting it to music for a few reasons: it has visual themes that both imitate and contradict with Star Wars canon, it’s a relatively obscure franchise, and there is no spoken dialogue to work around. The ending of the song and the video both have a sustained ending that is usually one of my pet peeves: the mindless fade out. I’ve always held the obnoxious opinion that if you can write a beginning then you can write an ending. In this case, the fade out is intended to build anticipation and leave the viewers with questions.

    Hello there. I appreciate your work a lot, you made me subscribe to the game again, and with the kotet content you made it pretty much resembles what the story is about along with the tracks of Thomas. Thank you for your fantastic work. Keep fighting.
