I’ve been reading through all of your Harry Potter threads and I really like all the tweaks and alterations throughout. I’ve always felt that the films sometimes felt oddly edited and disjointed. The series is still fresh in my mind considering I’ve binged all the films recently so it’d be interesting to see how these changes affect the experience. I’d like a link please.

If a link for this marvel is still available, I would really love one. I’m so curious to see this movie with a whole new tone and atmosphere like the rest!

Could you explain to me why you kept the logo golden? If the goal here is consistency with the later films, shouldn’t it be silver?

I would very much like a link to download these two revisited versions of the two films.

Thank you!

Update - March 22, 2019
Last night we watched this and it is a different movie all together for the better. There were a few things I would not have changed but for this edit what was done was great. I really like the new music changes. It gives many scenes better feeling/meaning using the same music throughout the saga.

Really well done. I cannot wait to view the other edits that you have done in the Harry Potter series.

Hello,
Thank you for your amazing job,

I would like to know if I can have a link for your finished movies! My girlfriend doesn’t like HP because of the bright tone, I want to surprise her with your edit!

Watched the first hp edit last week with with the kids, we all thought it was great! we all thought the new music enhanced the movie, and we also liked the alternate start with the flashbacks - great! Like the idea of not seeing any magic until it’s introduced to Harry - similar to the book.

We’ve seen this movie so many times - we all enjoyed your different take on it - and it’s flawless! Brilliant!!

Looking forward to watching your edited second later this week!

Sorcerer’s Stone will get a V2, but in my eyes more of a complete overhaul. The original version will remain, but for those who prefer an overall smoother transition into the darker aspects of the Harry Potter world - with better alterations to the original film, might find this one much more preferable.

CHANGES WILL INCLUDE:

  • A moving camera. A lot less of the static shots and more movement.

  • Less child-friendly lingering on shots. Removing a lot of extended reaction shots. This has done wonder to the pacing.

  • Color grading with more color than that of my original version, but color graded to fit PoA a lot better.

  • A lot less music from GoF and onwards (only 2 tracks as of now), as to better build the musical theme and identity of Sorcerer’s Stone better. The first hour of the film is nearly all Sorcerer’s Stone/CoS music, with my own alterations here and there.

  • Removed instances of music in certain scenes. Sorcerer’s Stone is very reliant on the music telling the story, and sometimes it can go on for too long. Built new SFX/ambience for these scenes. It’s in a total about 50 seconds of music removal, so it’s not anything major. Just enough to let the audience feel and interpret the story on their own in certain key scenes.

  • Hogwarts is now a character. The film has about six-eight (might even become more) new establishing shots - all worked on for quite some time, and all completely new ones. No more borrowing from the other films. This, in my eyes, is crucial as to not feel like PoA is the first film to actually introduce the school and the atmosphere - and not just the characters.

  • Removed ALL inconsistencies that I could think of. Mr. Flitwick’s charms class is still featured, but his character is only seen briefly - and only his body, not his head (the inconsistency). This works surprisingly well, and one of the reasons for it is because we’ve already had two classes before this third one, all with newly introduced characters. That way, this third one doesn’t feel all that important when I tell the audience that he really isn’t.

  • Removed ALL previous (V1) flashbacks, and only included two (whereas the original had four). These were remade, and are - in my humble opinion - much better.

  • After about the one hour mark the film starts to grow a little bit darker, up until the ending confrontation with Voldemort - which turns GoF-Dark, but it’s still very much a more adult-friendly child-movie with a breath of fresh air up until that point.

  • Dumbed down Hagrid even more than V1. Now he’s only a plot device when it comes to the Nicolas Flamel nameslip.

  • Quidditch is paced better. This sequence also has the most color added to it out of the entire film. This thing should feel magical. In my V1 it looks colorless and somber. I also didn’t include the PoA Quidditch Theme for the first film (like I did in V1), simply because this is the first entry. It should build its own identity, and the later musical scores should grow naturally into the film’s tone and feel. This first Quidditch Match is simply just magical, and the film’s score captures that brilliantly.

  • Removed A LOT of shots that had bad CGI, or lingered on the shot so long that you would eventually notice it yourself.

  • … and a lot more, but I’ve forgotten.

Very nice intro, however, I still feel the order - Opening, flashback, Harry Gets the mail, Harry has dream - Is pretty awful. Is Harry dreaming of getting the mail? The order and pacing are quite jarring, and somewhat counter-intuitive.
I assume you couldn’t fit the mail scene in somewhere else?

I cannot stress how much I love these edits, I also cannot stress how much I wish the order were different. Were you to remove the mail moment and the ten years before text, the first flashback being Harry’s dream, I feel the opening would be perfect.

My two cents.

Hmm. Never thought of it that way. Always thought of it as a new opening, and that the order was self-explanatory. Never heard any complaints about this before either.

I can fool around a little and see if I can find a better flow to it.

Hey, it’s your edit, and if I’m the only one with an issue then I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s the ONE issue I have, and whether or not you leave it as is, I’ll still enjoy the final edit.

Was the “Revisited” title inspired from Adywan’s edits of the original Star Wars films?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

His concept of revisiting a movie to imorove it was, so yes, also the title.

Which is kinda ironic since I hadn’t even seen his A New Hope revisited, but his text wall of changes and ideas definitely inspired me - big time.
