For a long time, I have wanted to create a set of extended editions to the HP films since it does not look like they will ever be released on DVD/Blu-Ray. With the extended versions coming to an end on FreeForm at the end of the year, I have been working for the past few months on putting my own set of extended editions together. My intent on the project was to create a set closely mimicking the FreeForm extended editions, but not matching them.
While these are my first fan edits for a film, I have had video editing experience in the past. I am using Final Cut Pro X as my editor and Adobe Audition for sound editing. The first of my submissions has been approved at FanEdit and will be up on IFDB once everything is finalized to change me over to a FanEditor. These film versions will only have stereo audio, mainly due to me only have stereo for my playback and some of the scenes needing music from the original soundtracks, which was only in stereo. I do plan on working on 5.1 edits in the future. Material for the edits are Blu-Ray rips of the films including the deleted scenes as well as the soundtrack audio files.
PMs can be sent to me to receive download information. You MUST own a legal version of the original movies before downloading. I do not support illegal downloading or viewing of these movies.
