Great, thanks! Sadly, this is just a nice idea for the moment, because, even if I could be able to recreate some shots, they will be not enough I think to justify a whole project… unless someone shows interest anyway, or would like to help with other ways to “fill” the missing parts.
Still, some shots could “maybe” used for the extended edition.
Have you tried seam carving? There are a couple of plugins for avisynth (both by V.C. Mohan).
