He’s gonna be remembered as one of the greatest fan editors because of what he’s doing to TLJ.

I don’t know about that one chief

To what degree do we have control over him? We can politely suggest for him to cut it out, and we can remove his post from this forum, but what else can we really do?

It’s in all of our collective best interest for him to stop, but I don’t think we can do anything beyond just asking him and explaining why it can damage the fanediting community.

Hot take: The Force Awakens is in no way, shape or form a rehash or remake of A New Hope.
It’s no more derivative than the average sequel, and is certainly less derivative than the prequels.

The oddly masked hilt is a big indicator that this is not at the level of Adywan. It’s not terrible, but it’s certainly not a filmed prop or at the level of Adywan’s miniature or fx work.

It is possible that good hobby work done here could land skilled members new jobs in the industry…

Harmy is a perfect example of this 😄

The ONLY time money should be involved in fan projects is when they invest their OWN hard earnings into their OWN resources to complete the tasks at hand, that’s an unfortunate reality that must be grasped by everyone who invests their time into shit like this.

I agree with the additional exception of Adywan’s case where a collective donation effort is solely for helping fund the edit process itself but no personal profit is ever taken from the donations.

I never meant it as a direct literal comparison 😉

Yes, Adywan accepts donations, but these don’t make nearly enough to cover the costs of his project, and paypal donations are more of a personal offering than a patreon subscription or buying lame t-shirts. Same goes for film restoration projects where multiple members pitch money to order the reels and such, this is not unethical. You won’t find Adywan on youtube begging for monthly payments so he can sit in front of a computer and change musical queues until he’s blue in the face, Adywan actually uses great amounts of resources, time, and effort, yet I’m sure he doesn’t come close to breaking even.

I have a Youtube channel with restored NASA documentaries and footage and I can tell you that the content matching algorithms work. Even with 50 year old music or images, you get copyright claims.
The process is automated, so the Mouse knows about it and can block any videos by pressing a button.
They know about everything, since they have people googling for their property 24/7.

I’m sure they will act once it’s released ( give him rope to hang himself) 😉

Just for the record and to be clear, I am not saying otherwise to any of what you said above.

Where Ivan’s edit is concerned, it doesn’t surprise me that he’s generated a certain appreciative following for his efforts…as there’s just so many out there who were very discontented with various aspects of THE LAST JEDI.

Personally, I’m not too keen on some of his proposed alterations…but that’s probably because I already have specific ideas of my own about how I’d prefer to re-edit the damned thing. 😉
