Finally had time to check out the hour long clip. There's some great editing here.
there are also a few things that make the edit feel a bit rough around the edges, things that should hopefully be a simple fix - changes in aspect ratio - music that swells and quickly fades during the end of the alternate Shaw / Holloway scene - faint noise during the opening logos..
Feels a bit weird to get the start of the opening titles but then no movie title or further titles.
The extended Weyland speech is much better, some parts could probably still be trimmed to get to the point sooner..
Maybe you could rip out the Weyland promo audio from the cargo scene for the logo at the end of the speech - the "Building better worlds" speech?
I'd trim out some of the transmission footage and keep it all together in a single segment.
The edit to the Lawrence Arabia scene works really well with David finishing the line.
Still not too keen on the 'quiet eye' sequence for a dream sequence - at least the visuals - especially with Yutani logos plastered all over it.
Thank you for cutting out Fifield being a jackass during breakfast.
As I've mentioned i'm no fan of the briefing scene.
The scene between Vickers and the others in the lifepod should probably be right before they suit up - Shaw also comes across as a bit of a bitch in the scene..
Any chance of removing Fifield howling like a wolf? He and Milburn definitely need some editing to seem more credible and less like asshats.
Milburn's 'we found life' scene is cheesy but I like it - as well as Fifield making fun of him without seeming like a total asshole.
The alien3 music while they are in the tunnels fits really well.
I feel like the alternate version of the Shaw / Holloway scene [used here] works much better.
I like the shed skin scene.
I'd get rid of the eye worm and make Holloway just seem hungover.
