Hey all! So, I recently took a vacation with my family to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Florida, and needless to say it got me way back into the Harry Potter spirit and I got the idea for these edits.
Basically these will be edits along the lines of Adywan’s Revisited edits of Star Wars, though maybe not as extreme. The idea is to create a more seamless continuity between the films, because as it is, the transition between films is pretty jarring in terms of visual style. I am not wanting to create completely different films. I am not cutting the films down to be “better”, but rather matching the visual styles and eliminating any major continuity errors between films.
Here is my list of goals so far. Please put forth any ideas of your own that may help:
- Replace wands in Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets to match later films.
-color correct all movies to match visually (eliminating the crazy blue and green color grades of the later 4 films)
-Re-insert deleted scenes, provided they don’t create continuity errors.
-Insert occasional John Williams music into GOF, OOTP, HBP, and DH
-Matching end credits for ALL movies.
-(possibly) Matching opening titles? (not sure on that one. I’d like to hear what everyone thinks of it.)
-Emphasize and better show importance of the Deathly Hallows in last 2 films.
-Pensieve sequence in Goblet of Fire match pensieve sequences in later films
-Pitch down Griphook the goblin’s voice in Philosopher’s Stone (“lamp please”) to more closely resemble Deathly Hallows Griphook
I didn’t want to make a thread about this until I had some test clips ready, but I got excited and couldn’t wait. =) Again, any ideas/imput is welcome.
