Game of Thrones - Film III - A Feast for Crows

Author
Time

This edit, and this series of edits, will create each separate season of Game of Thrones into one movie each - in the style of Lord of the Rings.

A Tale of Kings and Honor and A Storm of Swords are already finished.

[1.1] PROJECT INFO AND EXPLANATION

Game of Thrones - A Feast for Crows is the third film in this series of Game of Thrones movies. The project is meant to have the same structural pace and tone as the Lord of the Rings, while maintaining the story and characters of Game of Thrones, to create a suspenseful, truthful-to-material, one-time adventure in which - instead of watching 10 hours of episodes, you watch one condensed 3-hour long movie with the story fundament of Game of Thrones and the pure adventure and tone of the Lord of the Rings.

Except for the shorter running time, adventurous feel of LOTR and GoT combined, and more condensed storyline, half the idea is also that it will be much easier to watch this with a nay-sayer friend than to ask him to watch 10 hours of episodes with you. Also, much easier to do a Game of Thrones-marathon.

The series’ soundtrack is completely removed and replaced with that of Lord of the Rings, using different themes for the different houses (Rohan for the Starks, Gondor for King’s Landing etc), as well as the entirety of the score of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies where suited.

[1.2] PROGRESS

A Feast for Crows, the third film, has been worked on simultaneously with Film II (which recently was finished). This was to create a good and confident bridge between the two movies, as Season 2 and 3 function as the same story with their respective character arcs. I hoped to release them both before the Season 8 premiere, but it was too much work.

Winter Is Coming!

[UPDATE]

A Feat for Crows is nearing its completion, and the fourth film is also slowly in the works. Thank you all for your brilliant ideas on PMs, and for your questions! I’ll make a couple of things clear in here:

  1. When I come to season 7 and 8 then yes, I will make major alterations to the story. Season 8 simply doesn’t work most of the time.
  2. I will fix Dorne plotline to the best of my ability, which means removing a lot of the stupid and cringey things surrounding it.
  3. The second film, A Storm of Swords, has the name of the third book because it fits better thematically with the film. The second film features a big, climactic battle (with SWORDS), a lot of fighting (with SWORDS) and a lot of scenes involving SWORDS, including the opening title with the naming of Robb as the new King. The third film has the name of the fourth book (“A Feast for Crows”), because it involves a lot of scenes with crows. Sam and Gilly are attacked by a White Walker and crows. Jon Snow is many times called a crow. The opening shots of the movie includes dead bodies and crows. This film also ends on the most dramatic note, with three main characters dying - which makes a true feast for the crows, themetically. So, the names fit thematically much better for the films I’m making rather than the seasons on the screen.

So glad that this project is near completion. I have fully enjoyed your previous cuts and I completely trust your choises and skills for this one.
I am super looking forward to it.

As far as it goes with the changes you want to make to Season 7 and 8, I just hope you won’t tweak things too much.
Despite all of its flaws I want to enjoy the show for what is it. But then again this is your project, your own vision so I will watch and enjoy it for what you want it to be.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Film III, A Feast for Crows.

As for your concerns to the ending chapters - season 8, the only thing I would drastically change would be the ending reveal of Bran as the Night King.

Here’s a post from fanedit.org, an explanation if you will:

(…)

And as Random and me have been talking about on PMs, revealing Bran to be the Night King could make for a more satisfying and dark ending. I could reveal him to have warged into Daenerys, or the dragon, right before the slaughter. It would still justify her plotline - slowly losing her mind; because she would still at this point be conflicted and mad and having burned Varys and threatened Tyrion, but instead of the insanely sudden shift to genocide; it would be Bran/NK who would put the final nail in the coffin.

I, personally, think that the most emotional and dark ending would be if Bran was revealed to have warged into Drogon (and not Daenerys) and performed the slaughter, and Daenerys would kind of just have had to stand for what had happened - making the episode 6 material be more of her having been forced to go Mad Queen rather than chosen to do so. It would also make more sense, as the dragons are many times told to be uncontrollable and dangerous throughout the series. Therefore, Daenerys would try to hold face and pretend to be all just and true about what has happened, when in reality she’s completely destroyed. Her death would also be more tragic, because the audience would be the only ones to know that what happened wasn’t really her (dragon’s) doing.

Either way, long time until film 8 (or perhaps 9/10) now - but tell me what you think!

As I said, this is your vision, so you get to choose how the story goes.
What I have read sounds interesting and I am curious to see how it will end up to the final cut.

But for now, I will be waiting for any update about Film III and IV.

I would love one person to preview Film III, preferably tonight. If you have the time and interest, please PM me! The film is exactly 3 hours long. If I’ve done my job well, time should fly and enjoyment be high!

Thank you all!

As I read the info and update posts it just sounds sooo amazing.

I like the way you find connection in the names of the projects with the actual story plot in them, not just randomly writing some names!

I would mention (again) that it would be lovely to hear some of the original soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi in a place or two, if not in this movie, then in the upcoming one(s).

Keep it UP, Andreas!

Ι finally finished Film III “A Feast for Crows”… and it was a blast!
I have to say that Season 3 might be my favourite and I was a bit anxious about your cut.

I also have to admit that some things weren’t exactly how I was expecting them to be, but your editing was trully flawless and the whole film felt really smooth and delightful.
As I have said before, this progect is your artistic vision and I am going to watch it as such.

! SPOILERS, I GUESS !

I really liked the fact that you chose to begin the film with a “cold start”.
At first I thought why didn’t you start the film with Sam running away from White Walkers, as the previous one ended, but then I came to realize that showing from the beginnig the aftermath of the battle was a smart choice.
The return of Daenerys was definitely a plus, but I was hoping to see also some of the scenes out from Season 2 you left. Especially her vision in the House of the Undying because of the events of the final season.
One other thing that I was hoping to see and didn’t make the cut was the whole ‘The Bear and the Maiden Fair’ arc. But I understand why you chose to left it out and, if I have to be honest, it didn’t affect at all Jaime’s and Brien’s growth throughout the film.
Finally, concerning the “big event” of Season 3, I was hoping that you would leave it completely untouched for I believe it is trully a flawless sequence. But again I liked what you chose to do. Merging of the ‘mergins’ in a montage between the weddings of the Freys and the Lannisters, was I really smart move. And of course THAT ending. A “cold start” and a “cold end”. Genius.

Summing up, I think Film III was a bit more ‘artistic’ than the previus two films and I absolutely loved that.
I have said it before and I will say it once more: You are doing God’s work here. I salute you, frined.
I can’t wiat for Film IV!

My kind, kind brother! This was an honor to read through, and I am thrilled to see that a lot of my ideas and executions of them were rightfully picked up by you as an audience member. That feels good, as it can sometimes be the hardest part along with the pacing!

Thank you for your kind words and enjoyment. Thank you!

Season 8, being as underwhelming as it has been, has made it necessary to change up certain end game aspects. Which is why I’m making a quick blueprint on the last season to work my way up to with the remaining films.

This is the rough cut of my version of Daenerys’s turn to madness:

As a rough cut it is put together pretty good, with room for impromvent.
But will this mean that Missandei’s death and Danny’s intense look over the city won’t make it to the final cut?

Also, I am and will be waiting for some update for Film 4.

Hard editing on film III when you have to take into concern to shorten the serial from 10h to 3h but It ended with a good storyline.

The use of the serial OST suprised me, it did mix with the new one very thematicly.

This movie was very nicely done! With every movie your skills get better.
