I did a fan edit that is supposed to be a recreation of the theatrical version. Given there aren’t may changes compared to the 4K transfer. My project included a recreation of the Saul Bass WB logo that was on the original release, done by me. Also the original mono tracks from the LD and 1999 DVD and the original blue credits at the end.

Silverwook where are you ?

He’s recovering from cateract surgery

I’m seeing a lot better these days, but I have other issues with the right eye that distorts my vision and makes reading text on the screen difficult at times. It may be a long while before that’s resolved.

If you haven’t heard, WB sent a C&D to a fan editor whose Hobbit edit may have been a little too high profile, so I’m trying to figure out how to proceed with extreme caution. Someone on facebook found screenshots from earlier in the thread a couple years back and posted them there, so my paranoia is a bit justified.

Hope you recover your sight soon. Yes, your paranoia is justified. If studios start to send notices for fan edits then everyone has to proceed with caution. The problem is, once a content is released, the editor can no longer control how it gets shared, among whom and where it ends up. On the other hand, if the editor cannot share it, or share it only with a tiny number of people, then it’s probably not worth the time to undertake such projects anyway. So, it’s a tricky situation. Creative drive vs corporate batons.
It’s genuinely scary how undemocratic the world is becoming day by day. Even something as non-profit and reverential as a fan edit is being targeted by mega corporations who make a tremendous amount of money anyway. Everyone it seems, want exclusivity nowadays and are aggressively enforcing it. Do correct me if I am wrong.

Any updates on this project? Have been checking back in every now and again, and noticed it had been quiet for a while. Just recently watched the 35mm open matte scan of Spider-Man (2002), which re-ignited my interest in this project. Looking forward to one day hopefully being able to watch this version of one of my favourite films!
