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!"
Neglify, as a small thank you and in recognition of everything you've done for us here at the home of fanedits, a few of us got together to create a little something to officially mark the occasion. With love from everyone here at the site, here be 'A Tribute to Neglify'.
The Man Behind The Mask just released a new short fanedit LIFE
This is a short edit of various underwater documentaries with only music. A bit like Luc Besson's Atlantis.
"This is an old project of mine. I finished it before I made my fanedit Cosmogony but for various reasons it was not released yet.
In fact it is a remake of my very first fanedit ever, done maybe almost 20 years ago, back to the days of VHS.
I always loved underwater footages and I've made an edit mixing various documentaries with music I liked.
I have lost this VHS but this new version is about 50% a remake of it. Different footage, some different music (but a lot of the original ones too), but same spirit.
For now it's only available under this vimeo video. I'll try to find a way to release it with maybe other short edits of mine one day."
YouTube user Mr88668866 has created a trailer for the new Star Wars: Episode VII utilizing footage from both of Abram's Star Trek trailers as well as cinematic footage from the Star Wars game "The Old Republic".
