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.
"My goal with these edits was to create versions of the PT that were to put it simply 'enjoyable to watch'. I wanted to make good versions of these films that still felt like the same films in essence. The watch word is CHARACTER!
Other great edits streamline the films down to 90 mins but for me a true SW film should give you around 2 solid hrs of entertainment (And not 2.5hrs either!). So I've made sure you'll enjoy spending these 2 hours in this universe."
"I was scanning through the SW holiday special (Never watched it properly before 'cause I couldn't stand it ) for my Workprint project and noticed that some of it comes off like a terifying acid-trip nightmare. Thus the idea of compiling and remixing only the very trippy-est moments into a short film.
Obviously the visual quality is limited by the VHS source material of this never-commercialy-released car-crash TV show."
"This is so far the only version to make it to an HD format and contained numorous audio and visual changes, most noticeably digital comic-book style bridging sections to replace the original wipes."
Rogue-Thex just released his new fanedit: Dredd: Digest Edition
This is a shortened version of the excellent Dredd (2012) movie. The plot unfolds somewhat differently from the original as a result of the shortened run time.
"My goal was to simply create a fun condensed version of Dredd based on super 8 digest editing techniques. To experiment with cross-cutting. To edit and encode entirely in mono: Dredd has an excellent sound mix, I wanted to further my experiments with mono editing as a creative learning exercise. No old film effects have been added to this release despite it being inspired by super 8 digests which is why I subtitled it 'Digest Edition' instead of 'The Super 8 Cut' so there is some distinction."
Aztek463 just released his new fanedit: Silent Hill - Homecoming
This is a fanedit of Silent Hill: Revelation that removes unnecessary jump scares and monster encounters, as well as reduces some silly dialogue. The film now stands a little less out of the shadow from its predecessor.
"My goal was to increase tension by removing jump scares. Just like the games, there is a lot of the expectation of something to happen without anything actually happening, so that when something actually DOES happen, it's worthy of the scare. Silly dialogue was also reduced, as well as efforts made to differentiate Claudia's Order from Christabella's Order in the first film. This was...dubiously successful due to the limitations of the source material.
The color of the edit has been altered similar to the HD retouch of "Restless Dreams" - (the previous Silent Hill fanedit from Aztek463
The Bionic Adventure continues with BionicBob's latest installment of 70s icon, The Six Million Dollar Man!
"My intent was simply take the first official cross over/team up adventure of Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers, and recut it into fun, crazy-even-by-1970s-standards, campy adventure movie."
When civil war erupts between the San Angelo Aliens, Colonel Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers must team up to stop the renegade aliens from causing a global cataclysm on their way to world domination. But to stop the evil aliens, they must first defeat The Savage Sasquatch!!!
With the "Fidelio Edition" Bill’s motivations are no longer about his need to assert his masculinity and sexual revenge. Instead, Bill is a victim of curiosity, coincidence and circumstance.

My intention with this fanedit was to make a version of Eyes Wide Shut that I would want to watch. I wanted to remove all the story elements that I did not like and make a “replacement” version for myself."
