Another Hobbit fanedit (Peter Jackson Edition)
Time

Ok, so I got some good news and bad news… Good news is that everything is going according to schedule and I am almost done fixing audio issues and visual issues for my test screening! I also figured out a way to make the films match the LOTR films that I’m pretty sure no one else mentioned, but giving it that film look by not only adding grain, but blurring the picture a tinge. Bad news, I’m pretty sure that the release of this edit will be delayed as I found the color grading featurette on Fellowship’s extended edition, and I really want to match what they did (not fully, but partially). What I have in mind will take some time to finish, so I’m not sure if it will release near the end of spring or the end of summer, but I will know as soon as I do more tests. But I can release what I have once I feel confident enough for it to stand on its own. Hope you all have a pleasant day!

Another Hobbit fanedit (Peter Jackson Edition)
Time

Hello, quick update. So I’m on my second draft of the first movie and currently finishing up my first draft of the second one. Audio is a bit of a pain in the second one, but given a couple of weeks, it will sound better. I plan on doing a test screening in the coming months were I can get feedback from personal friends, and then, I will release my third and final draft to the fan edit community (in 2D). To keep you guys content for a couple weeks, here is my latest (and best) version of how the new color correction will look! I’m so excited 😃 !!!

Beyond the Sea U.S. Bluray
Time

Little update, I bought the vudu hdx version and I have come across something interesting. They managed to obtain a copy with the image opened up to 1:85:1 seeing as the original was 2:35:1. So new plan going forward, I’m going to make three versions, one with 2:35:1 setting, one with 1:85:1 setting, and a changing aspect ratio one (for select mudical sequences and important scenes, basically an IMAX version).

The Great Gatsby (revisited)
Time

Ok, so I just want to put this idea out there and while I have multiple projects going on, I think this will be short and sweet. So I’m currently read The Great Gatsby in class, and the film is a guilty pleasure of mine, so I decided to rewatch it. It has aged quite poorly, but only because of the dated music. I also saw some problems with some of the weirder editing choices (as Baz Luhrmann does). My plan for this edit is to add better music to fit it, but here is the catch. I’m going to make four sources, which you (the downloader) can mix and match with mkvmerge or other apps. The four sources are two different video sources (2D & 3D) and two 5.1 DTS audio sources (one that has age appropriate music that fits the time more appropriatley. The other will use electro swing which I will personally prefer more. This version will be much more intune with the atmosphere that balances the book & movies styles, and certainly make those party scenes quite lively in that way that only Baz Luhrmann can achieve). I hope you enjoy the idea, while I finish up v.1 of my two parter Hobbit fan edit (just finishing color correction and video syncing). Then I will focus on preserving Beyond the Sea. This Gatsby edit should be a piece of cake compared to two three hour fan edits and a preservation. Btw, this is the album I plan using for the electro swing audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nD-8euqNN4

Another Hobbit fanedit (Peter Jackson Edition)
Time

So for my next fanedit, I went into this thinking, what if Peter Jackson was more focused & had enough time to think on making The Hobbit films. My plan is to create two 2-3 hour movies from the whole Hobbit Trilogy. This is what Peter Jackson was originally planning ending the first film with them meeting bard. While the concept sounds very similar to The arkenstone & JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit fanedits, I have two very distinct plans. I’m keeping part of the Legolas subplot & all of Radaghast subplot in (but removing all the silly/ridiculous elements of them) as fan service for LOTR fans. I’m also making a 3D cut of the films, seeing as that was a pivotal part of the film making process. I plan on color correcting them to remove green tints and make them more intune with LOTR. The 2D edit will have some grain on it as well (with possible digital dust specs as well). I also am going to have a DTS 5.1 mix with both films. I have my first cut of the first movie done, and am curently syncing hd footage with color correction to them. The first film should be out in around two months time. One thing I do need help with is uploading to myspleen so I can get my killing joke edit on there and eventually get this one on there as well… I cannot wait to share this with all my “fellow” LOTR and Hobbit fans! 😀

Do you think Disney will release the unaltered versions for DVD and blue ray
Time

Kinda moving off topic a bit, but is disney still going to release the prequels on Bluray 3D? I remeber seeing multiple articles touching on this, (such as this one), http://www.geek.com/tech/star-wars-prequel-trilogy-coming-to-3d-blu-ray-rogue-one-in-editing-and-new-star-wars-tv-in-the-works-1664746/ , even though many would say it is a gimmick and many more be against because the prequels are not held in such high standard, it would be a shame to throw out all that hard work that conversionist did for it

Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers

Still working on them, trying to get the fronts done first because I have a very great idea of what I want from them. The backs always give me trouble in the arrangement and trying to look uber professional department. In shorter terms, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it…

With regards to the Itunes / Amazon digital releases, Disney put the original soundtracks back on itunes, but with different covers from the original release (basically the box art for the main digital release). You can tell this is the original because not only is the track listing the same as the original release, but they changed the release date to its original release date and THE COPYRIGHT DATE TO THIS YEAR!!! Good on you Disney!!!

I’m working on integrating the imax scenes into a video copy of The Force Awakens, but I need help on getting the proper settings for it to look like the original source, because everytime I encode it the grain looks fine until I get to the black scenes were all dark shadows and such become super pixelated… The editing software I’m working with is Adobe Premiere Elements 10

Can someone please help with this, I hate to be impatient, but its been over a week and I’m still waiting for a reply…

That sounds great. The only problem is I do not have a capture card and prefer not to buy software. Do you have any suggestions for capturing it? I have a desktop pc with windows 10.

Beyond the Sea U.S. Bluray
Time

The severely underrated film by Kevin Spacey has not gotten a proper release on bluray in the states, even though it has in France, somehow… Anyway, my plan is to get the french bluray of the film and despecialize it. Why? Because there are a couple of significant errors with the French bluray, there are French subtitles burned into each song section which makes no sense at all. The other issue that should be noted is that the DTS track is DTS-HR not DTS-HD MA, technically classifying it as lossy audio, but that issue will be figured out in the future. The main game paln is with the picture. What I plan to do to fix that is photoshopping each frame and replace the subtitles with the dvd upscaled to 1080p (similarly to the techniques used in the Amadeus theatrical restoration). The dvd is in pretty tip top shape so it should not be too much of an issue. If color or other things become too much of an issue, I’ll use Dr Dre’s color correction tool to tweek it. After all that, I’ll release the video part (mkv most likely around 20GB & possibly a smaller version around 10GB) & getting around to creating a proper English bluray!!!
