'The People vs George Lucas' is doing a theatrical run before the DVD release, so saw the local screening and was pleasantly surprised to see the 'FanEdit.org' logo make an appearance as they discuss the fan edit phenomenon.

One of the segments of the film focuses on fan edits, starting with the Phantom Edit. After interviewing one of the early TPM editors, the segment interviews some other early SW editors, then progresses to some of the currents: Adywan, Jambe Davdar and TMBTM. Adywan is interviewed about the death threats he's received (but they don't explain why his edit is drawing such attention.) Jambe's 'Building Empire's logo is on screen, and after some twittering it's been confirmed that that is his voice talking over it. But for most of the segment TMBTM is interviewed and they discuss the work involved in his Silent Editions. Recoloring, FPS revision, cropping etc. In the middle of all this, they explain how these SW edits are part of a larger phenomenon, and that's when the old FanEdit.org logo scrolls across the screen. (and below the logo is the entry for tBSWM by %20) They might have shown another part of the website, but the movie moves along at a good pace so now my minds a little hazy.

So with the movie showing in theaters, out comes the reviews and this one you all might find humorous:

There's also an entire underground phenomenon of people who have taken the various films, downloaded them to their computers, then reedited and otherwise changed them.So there you have it, you all are now officially part of an underground phenomenon, congrats.

I submitted a reply to that huffington post article regarding this quote:

I clarified that the editor must own the source material, and as such haven't
downloaded them to their computers

For some reason my comment hasn't been "approved" yet. :|

I remember you mentioning this before. I guess they wanted to focus on how strong a reaction some of these edits are getting, but you would think they would've talked more about ANH:R, considering it's pretty much the biggest thing to ever hit fanediting. (makes me wonder if, had ANH:R never been promoted here, as some would have liked, would they have given much focus to TMBTM, FE.org and other edits?)
