What are FanEdits, and why make them? FanEdits are an artform where someone takes a video source/sources and rearranges them with video editing software to create either a modified, or even radically new version of a movie.
Ken Poirier will release 3 fanedited episodes of Final Fantasy X every two month, rendered with a technique that he called the Ralpherization. In homage to Ralph Bakshi, the creator of The 1978's Lord of the Ring movie.
He wants to share with you an episode per week before the "official" release of the 3 episodes at IFDB that would happen the following month.
Ken: "I'm using Episode #3 as the pilot because I think it is more representative of a regular episode. Enjoy!"
ranger613 just released a new fanedit:Godzilla Rises
A leaner, meaner and more realistic cut (of Godzilla, 2014) which retains the nihilistic mood and tone of the theatrical cut and minimizes the poor characterization and excess 'emotional' moments resulting in a far darker and better Monster movie... The stars of this version are not the humans, but the monsters.
"I put together a faster paced cut which focuses on the core of the story-- much more emphasis on Dr Serizawa and the military team (relevant to the situation) than on Brody's family (all irrelevant in the big picture) and their attempts to stop the monsters. The dark mood and foreboding tone of the original is retained. If you enjoyed the theatrical cut, I agree that I'm cutting out and losing the (arguably) "emotional" moments of the film (family, power plant, etc) but its only to get a better Monster movie, which is what it is in the end."
MusicEd921 just released a new fanedit:Serenity Chronicles III: Revelations
This is the most complete version of the film Serenity. All deleted scenes have been added back in and whenever possible, they have been scored with music from the score composed by David Newman.
"In order to create a more complete ending to the story I was trying to tell in my Serenity Chronicles trilogy I wanted to add back in all of the deleted scenes that could be used. Now you feel more of a finality to Mal and Inara's story and the final exchange between Mal and The Operative brings the story full circle as The Operative now understands how far Mal has come since the ending of the war."
Adabisi just released a new fanedit:The Beast In Me
n the late 1990s, when David Chase was shopping around his script for The Sopranos, he was convinced that, even if he got a pilot made, no one would ever pick it up. In fact, he was hoping that this would happen because it would give him the push to be able to turn The Sopranos into a feature film that he’d always dreamed of making. Fortunately for us, this didn't happen. But what if The Sopranos wasn't picked up? What would Chase's film look like?
"Intention: to create a movie out of the first season of The Sopranos that best approximates the feature film that David Chase may have made. This edit focuses on Tony Soprano and his relationship with his mother, uncle and psychiatrist and how these relationships set in motion a series of events that drive the plot of the movie. Gone are all sub-plots and diversions that were created in order to fill the 13 episode run of the first season."
"I want these Marx Brothers edits to feel like nothing is missing (or nothing that you will miss anyway!), just pure comedy magic. With 'A Night In Casablanca', hopefully I've turned a flawed late-career highlight into a delight from start-to-finish."
ranger613 just released 3 new fanedits this week! Miami Vice 1: Vendetta Miami Vice 2: Score Miami Vice 3: Redemption
Those three fanedits turn the original Miami Vice TV series into thre movie focus on the best story arcs and characters of the show.Recolored, regraded, and with reamped audio, those edits are for fans and newcomers alike, faithful to the tone and story of the show, all told in the span of little over 2 hours each movies.
"Miami Vice is without a doubt the best TV show from the 80's. Full of fast cars, flashy lights, pastel suits, great music and bad dialogue, it embodied everything that was right (and wrong) during that decadent era.
- About Miami Vice 1: Vendetta: I wanted to create a film version of one of the best story arcs from the best season of Vice-- a movie that captured the spirit of the show and everything that made it great."
- About Miami Vice 2: Score: it focuses on arguably the best-potrayed character on the show, Marty Castillo, played by Edward James Olmos who won an Emmy and 2 Golden Globes for his run on Miami Vice.
- About Miami Vice 3: Redemption: I wanted to conclude the Miami Vice trilogy with what are considered two of the best episodes in the entire show's run 'Evan' and 'Definitely Miami', full of iconic imagery and great storylines. This entry is definitely the most personal one for Crockett and focuses on him."
NJVC has won the 'favorite edit of the month' for August, with his fanedit The Dark Knight Saga Recut Part III. Congratulations, NJVC and thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
This edit aims to strip down the finale of Nolan's trilogy to its core, emphasising the stronger aspects of the story and hopefully offering a more emotionally satisfying conclusion to Batman's story as a whole.
The Dark Knight Rises has some of the strongest elements of the trilogy, but is ultimately weighed down by its bloated running time, illogical narrative (especially in the 3rd act), jokey one-liners, and arguably, the failure to stick the landing in the film's final moments.
This series of three edits intends to streamline Nolan's Batman films, keeping the tone consistent throughout and emphasizing the strongest elements of the series.
