I have been a bit on-and-off with working on Resurrection, but significant progress is being made. I am now into Godzilla’s landing at Tokyo, having just completed re-editing the attack of the metro train.
I do have a few more in-progress clips for you all, I just have to go about uploading them, I will have one new one for you at the bottom of the post. I tried to upload these to YouTube, but alas, even as unlisted or private videos, that damn copyright detector immediately blocks them, so for now, I’m stuck with Vimeo’s limited storage space. I am going to try DailyMotion however, it seems they are a little more forgiving.
I also want to announce that I have secured the help of a second fellow editor in acquiring material for this project: Servanov. After reading on another forum about his reconstruction project of The Return of Godzilla’s English On-Screen Text International Cut, I realized that this fan edit was a means to finally remove the pesky burned-in Japanese text on the Kraken Releasing print, given that Godzilla 1985 did not contain many of the shots I need to replace. Servanov has agreed to provide me with in-progress work for these shots so that I may deliver a more complete experience. Thanks, Servanov!
Taking a break from the editing last night, I was inspired to change my artwork for the edit to something that felt a little more '80s. Given the entire premise of this project is to envision an alternate international version of The Return of Godzilla, it felt important to my sensibilities to have a poster that matches that. The biggest change is the logo; simpler, more original. So without further ado, here it is:
With that being all I have today, I will leave you with the two in-progress clips so far: the Yahatu Maru Wreck and the Ihama Attack. Passwords are daikoku and reactor, respectively. Enjoy!
