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, Billy Batson and thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit last month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
This is a cut of 1931's classic Universal 'Dracula' movie, restoring the film to the continuity of the shooting script.
"This edit restores the continuity established in the original shooting script (and used in the simultaneously shot Spanish-language version of Dracula) eliminating most of the continuity errors and quickening the film's pace in the third act.
Two versions are available, one using film elements taken solely from Tod Browning's English-Language release (the "purist" edition), and a second incorporating additional cut scenes and alternate footage taken from the Spanish-language version of the film directed by George Melford and shot on Browning's sets at night."
Congratulations, Jerick (and sorry about the delay of this announcement) 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 cut of 1997's 'Anastasia', turning it into the quintessential Disney princess movie.
"My goals were to: Remove most of the distasteful devil worshiping elements from the movie's central villain, to give the movie a proper villain by removing excess silliness from the characters of Rasputin and his sidekick Bartok, to remove poorly conceived computer generated imagery that clashes with the beautiful hand drawn animation, and to generally redeem a film that deserves a place alongside any Disney princess collection."
Congratulations, TM2YC (and sorry about the delay of this announcement) 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 cut of 'The Motion Picture' that attempts to get a little closer to the excitement and pacing of the Original-Series and the five Original-Crew films that followed it.
"I was never gonna be able to pull a thrilling 'Wrath of Khan' style adventure out of this thing, my intension was simply to bring it as close as I could to the spirit of the rest of the franchise. Still the same cerebral journey but at Warp-Speed instead of just Impulse-Power.
This cut is meant to be a "Fanfix" by a Star Trek fan who didn't love the source film but I hope longterm 'Motion Picture Fans' will still enjoy this alternate take."
Aztek463 won the favorite edit of the month of november with his fanedit 300: Earth and Water
Congratulations, Aztek463 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 mixing the two 300 movies in a war epic that revels in absurd action and doesn't forget to have fun.
"As soon as '300: Rise of an Empire' was announced to take place before, during, and after the original 300, a fanedit was inevitable. Combining the two films was like putting together a big puzzle that was covered in blood and sweat. "

Ranger613 won the favorite edit of the month of September with his fanedit The Hobbit: Into the Fire
This is the "version 2" of his firs fanedit The Hobbit Fire of the Dragon, that also wn the favorite edit of the month in June.
Congratulations, Ranger613 And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.
This is as close as Desolation comes to being a 'book' cut of Tolkien's the Hobbit.
"This cut has none of the zany dwarven antics of previous cuts and is strongly faithful to the novel (if you overlook Legolas, and Bard being a bargeman). It is different enough from previous versions that I felt comfortable giving it its own release-- 'Dragon' is 120 min (41 min cut) , Into the Fire is 98 min (63 min cut). This is a version I hope fans of the novel will enjoy, and is in many ways a better movie than "Dragon", narrative-wise."
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.
