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.
From the ashes of the Eugenics Wars a new threat arises. Captain Archer and the crew of the Enterprise race to stop Doctor Arik Soong and his genetically engineered Augments from starting a war between Earth and the Klingon Empire.
Bionic Bob edits the the 3 part Augment Arc into a faster paced action adventure by removing all commercial breaks, unneeded characters and filler subplots.
"I just wanted to recut three Trek episodes into a fun movie experience.
Plus I want to create more Trek edits to give those frakking Prequel edits a run for their money....LOL!
We NEED MORE TREK!!!!!"
HAL9000 just released a new fanedited version of Star Wars Episode I:Star Wars: Episode I - Cloak of Deception
The first of the revamped '9000 series', Cloak of Deception delivers a re-crafted perspective on Star Wars Episode I in keeping with the drive of the original trilogy of films. Unnecessary 'galaxy shrinking' cameos from classic characters have been cut down or removed. Anakin is depicted as a more mature and capable figure an audience can identify with. Jar Jar is recast as an everyman caught up in events outside his control who does his part in the fight for freedom, rather than a traitorous clown.
"By stripping away extraneous tangents and bolstering attention to character development, this edit seeks to improve the original film. The original trilogy is regarded as the template toward which the prequels strive. The prequels are made to submit to the continuity and drive of the originals to the degree possible."
"I've converted both films into two 3-part TV serials of roughly 20 minutes an episode. They are in Black & White, are cropped shot-by-shot to a more televisual 16:9, come with new opening & closing credits (Designed to evoke the Hartnell/Troughton era of the TV show), come with vintage-style BBC continuity annoucements (Provided by dangermouse) and feature many sound-effects and pieces of music from the TV show as well as the addition of the TV style Dalek "Negative image" RayGun effects. They have also been edited to improve pace, break them into episodes and create cliffhangers, streamline the story, fix errors, make the tone slightly more serious and to remove the lengthy (And non-caonical) introductions and closing scenes that would be unneccesary in a regular running TV show. Lastly I've included two trailers for other "Lost" Cushing serials (Again voiced by dangermouse).
I've also included bonus hour-long Colour specials of the two serials on a third disc (These are more coventional FanFixes omitting aproximately 15 minutes from each film). These are largely the same edits as my B&W episodes except; They are in colour, feature new Dalek effects, omit the cliffhangers and come with special alternate opening and closing credits designed to evoke the look of the Pertwee/Baker colour TV era (With a little 60s psychedelia thrown in).
You can also watch lower-quality streaming versions of the 6-episodes at their IFDB page under the "video" section.
Neglify just released is new fanedit:Animals
This is ‘Milo & Otis’ synced up to a Pink Floyd masterpiece.
‘Milo & Otis’ is a Japanese film about a cat and dog swept up in hazardous adventures in the wild. ‘Animals’ is a progressive rock album by Pink Floyd, inspired in part by George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’. It takes aim at politics, with deeper themes of life and death, manipulation, greed, blind faith and power. And it’s pretty rocking.
"I watched this movie many times as a child, I was fascinated by what was being shown to me. As an adult-type person I love listening to Pink Floyd, sometimes I’ll watch a random movie while doing it. These two seemed like a perfect fit."
The Man Behind The Mask just released is new fanedit:Riddles of the Lost Gods
This is Indiana Jones 4 with Mutt not being Indy's son and with other major changes, including removing most of the annoying parts that most fans of the franchise did not like. There's a new opening with Hugh Jackman in the role of the conquistador. Some new little special effects., etc.
"This fandit not just "cuts the bad parts" but have several major goals that makes Indy 4 a different beast. It's still not an amazing movie, but a very shorter one (1h20) with enough changes to makes you watch it with fresh eyes."
NewSpock just released is second fanedit:Matrix Reimagined
You want to experience the Matrix without the problems of the sequels? "Matrix Reimagined" delivers exactly that.
No multiple smiths, no Merowinger, no special powers outside of the matrix, no superfluous characters introduced, no Architect, no unconvincing CGI, no dancing zion-citizens... just one gripping story with no need for sequels.
"Matrix 1 was imho just perfect as it was, so I just kept rewatching that one, and only seldomly watching the sequels.
Still, Matrix 1 is not complete, the fate of Zion was still open.
For years I imagined and tinkered with ideas of how I would tell the story so that it gets a satisfactory resolution, one that is in synch with the promising Matrix 1.
This is the result: "Matrix Reimagined"."
"I wanted to condense Season 1 into a feature-length film, focusing on the six episodes in which Mother Brain gets close to victory. I also rearranged the episodes for high-low-high-low-high alternating levels of intensity.".
