Just finished up v1 of this edit over at FE and thought I’d share it with all of you wonderful people here at OT. Hope you are all safe and well!

Brief Synopsis:
MI6 agent, James Bond, earns his 00 agent license to kill and becomes the infamous 007.

Intention:
Create an 11 episode presentation of the Daniel Craig 007 era films that focuses on James Bond the Spy and the ensuing action. The edit also attempts to bring the last two films into a visual closeness with Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace through extensive color correction.

Release Info:
v1 June 2020 - 11 episodes in iTunes equivalent 6mbps 5.1 MP4 files
v2 Q3/Q4 2020 - 11 episodes in 15mbps 5.1 MP4 Files

001 - Ellipsis
Runtime: 0:43:57
Edit List
+Warning
+FE Netflix bumper
Cold intro of Bond earning his 00 license (removed fade in, now hard open)
+Created background and mask to remove the barrel effect when Bond shoots the informant
-Cut to black removing the Casino Royale intro/song (this is my favorite Bond song and one of my favorite rock songs, but in this format it just doesn’t fit)
+Inserted first 20 seconds of the Quantum of Solace intro/song and added episode title card
Open on boy running through the camp
-Trimmed the over the top parkour scenes, now Bond is just chasing him on foot through the vegetation, worksite and road
-Trimmed a little bit of M going off
-Trimmed Bond & Solange to just focus on moving the narrative and plot forward
-Trimmed M’s agitated cursing at Bond when he calls at the airport, is transfered to her then hangs up. The majority of her character is just bickering and I wanted to make her more than a disgruntled head of MI6. Hopefully it helps her natural transformation into the more supportive sympathetic role she will take in the third episode.
-Cut Bond falling off the truck and then chasing it down and jumping back on. Now he never falls off
Episode ends with close up of Bond’s face after Carlos activates the charge that Bond places on his belt
