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.
Congratulations, Matrixgrindhouse. And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
This is a "grindhoused" version of The Matrix.
(many others sources are also used.)
"I sought out to completely alter the movie as we know it. The presentation is now that of a mid-1980s exploitation film. The famous green tint has been removed and replaced with thick grain and print damage. The plot, character motivations, personalities, and sequence of events have been changed to tell the story in a new manner. Wherever possible, characters are made to be worse people. Everything depicted is - wherever possible - changed to be cheaper (via extensive use of behind-the-scenes footage), sleazier, darker, or simply different from the original version. The soundtrack has been almost completely replaced in favor of new music, with the emphasis on 70's synth to better suit the style and supposed time period. Continuity errors have been created where none had existed. New subplots have been added. Dialogue has been altered. I have changed everything that I possibly can change, while keeping within the context of the purpose of this Project".
Congratulations, Menbailee. And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
This is a fanedit of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
48 minutes cut.
"I set out to create a leaner, cleaner first part to The Hobbit. I do not demand purism relative to the book; instead, I insist on solid storytelling. Although I've cut most sequences that looked outright ridiculous, I kept Radagast and several other features that don't appear in the book or are more directed toward children, but which contribute to the story. Azog is gone, save only in an appearance as the angry orc in pursuit of Thorin & Company after the death of the Goblin King, the flashbacks are much condensed and differently placed, Frodo is gone, and we are left with a quicker and more magical return to Tolkien’s famous novel."
Congratulations, Gatos! And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
In this edit, 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."
With Pulp Empire, NJVC won the first FAVORITE EDIT OF THE MONTH (ever!)
(Yep you'll notice that FEOTM now stands for "Favorite Edit Of The Month" and not "Fanedit Of The Month" All icon tags and buttons should say "favorite" in the near future.)
So congratulations, NJVC for winning the May 2013 contest and thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this FEOTM.
This is A Tarantino inspired Star Wars mashup and remix.
"My intention is to take The Empire Strikes Back and remix it, using songs from and inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino. 100% of the score has been replaced, as well as overdubbing Yoda with Pai Mei, from Kill Bill Volume 2.
There are many visual nods to Tarantino as well, but in no way is this intended to be a new Tarantino film! It's intended as a fun homage to one of my favourite filmmakers, and a remix of one of the best films ever made. Steering away from the Tarantino vibe, I have also included a hero moment for most of the main characters, and thrown in a few songs that Tarantino would never use in a million years... Hope you enjoy it!"
This is the sequel to Star Wars - Episode I: The Ridiculous Menace. The intention was "to make one of the most ridiculous movies ever even more ridiculous". Star Wars Episode 2 being even more ridiculous than Episode 1, you can easily figure how ridiculous this new ridiculous edit is (!)
Brief Synopsis by TV's Frink:
"Old friends return,
New voices emerge.
New faces appear,
New secrets revealed.
Old romances resurface,
New romances blossom.
AND THE SHOCKING DEATH OF A MAJOR CHARACTER!!!
