Imagine releasing SEs of all the James Bond films where Bond has the same face throughout. Not Sean Connery’s, not Roger Moores’, a specially created one.

Ugh no. Don’t give them ideas like this!

Any info on anyone doing the full movie? I’ve been teased with so many youtube clips. Taking Coaxium Heist and Deepfaking it would be perfect!

Been a longtime lurker on this site, big fan of some of the content here, but I’m always kinda disgusted by how the majority of people on here have treated FDSW.
They were banned almost immediately from this community for absolutely no reason other than the fact that people here don’t want them to be able to fund their new VFX and shooting schedules. People on this forum stole their original VFX content, that does NOT belong to Disney, it belongs to FDSW, and it was behind a pay wall for it to be exclusive to the people who are helping them. What you guys did with that is actually illegal. So there’s no high ground there.

Pretty sure you guys attacked them for having an account on a streaming site that you don’t agree with, but they only had that account because the site itself would allow them to post their edits without fearing it being removed. There’s absolutely no political motivation to their edits at all.

If someone like MoviesRemastered, who I respect, can set up a fund for help with equipment and costs, it doesn’t seem right that FDSW got absolutely slated.

They make some great edits and they’re super ambitious, but this community treats them like trash. And you clearly like their content because you guys have stolen it more than once.

The community is extremely touchy about any sort of monetization due to legal concerns, so the mods prefer not taking any chances.

Jar Jar Bricks, among others actually leaked payed content and implied that if there wasn’t any watermark then it could be used. I’m just saying I think the way they’ve been painted as villains or bad dudes is just unfair. I totally understand about the potential risk of monetization but as I said, I don’t think it’s any different to how other editors on this site have also operated. FDSW have a page where you can donate to them filming new scenes and creating new effects, there’s nothing wrong with that and again, it’s no different to how others operate. It’s just a real shame because they always seem to try their best and are always asking for any help, they’re just editors and Star Wars fans.

I also have idealogical differences with them, but this forum isn’t the place to get into it. I think the general rule of thumb here is that they can do their thing over there, and we’ll be here doing our thing.

Also, on-topic, I don’t personally find those deepfakes particularly convincing. But then I feel like I’ve been spoiled by seeing Shamook’s excellent work on deepfakes.

Mods - I’m 99% sure this is a sock account for Fixing Disney Star Wars. I say this because they know information they shouldn’t otherwise.

Allow me to explain myself. I never “leaked” content with malicious intent. I simply put a TLJ deleted scene of Kylo on a bridge before their VFX of Mustafar as a test and then created a private video of it on YouTube, promptly sending it their channel. It was purely a recommendation for their edit. But of course I was called a bunch of nasty things, which immediately turned me off from being remotely interested in any their work.

Because of the private nature of that video, the only people that know about its existence are FDSW. And BTW, I have no idea wtf you’re talking about when saying that I implied if there wasn’t a watermark that it could be used. I realize that the nature of this website is that we ask the original creators for permission of use, and it never would have ended up in a public edit unasked because of that. Maybe I was referring to personal use? Even that I doubt as I don’t even remember what you’re referring to tbh.

And btw, get off your high horse. Stop claiming that you’re no different than anybody else who ask for financial contributions, because you know that’s completely false. Your own page admitted at one point that the edits would only be available for paid members exclusively for months before being granting access to the public. That’s 100% illegal, as you’re profiting from the Star Wars IP. No other way to spin that shit. I happily donated to Adywan because he doesn’t engage in scummy behavior like that.

Ziggy was also heavily involved, not just yourself. “That watermark is stuck there, for now” is what you said in regards to potentially using their footage, although granted you also mentioned that you’d probably need an agreement with them, but I believe you only said that because you also acknowledged it was their commissioned property, not for use elsewhere.

There’s absolutely no scummy behaviour from them. They are creating NEW scenes, not editing footage that belong to a studio, and are accepting donations in helping to do that. All of the profits go towards the new stuff for the film and I believe it’s absolutely okay for them to make the finished product only available to the people who helped first. It’s the least they deserve. I’m sorry, but fan films like Spider-Man Lotus or Vader crowdfund, even though the subject matter is copyrighted, but when it comes to this, you just want to spin it as scummy.

In sharing their content, you’re in more of a legal breach than they are, my friend. And that goes for anyone who was involved.

All I’m saying is that I’m kinda sick of being in this forum and seeing FDSW’s name dragged through the mud or insulted or scoffed at every single time it comes up. Once again, they’re not scumbags, they’re fan editors like everyone here.

They may be treated like dirt from the people on this forum but I’m sure we’ll be seeing their VFX turn up in different edits that pop up on here eventually.

Except you’re wrong, bud. There is a difference between placing a fan film/fan content behind a paywall, and an actual FILM that was distributed in theaters, except with fan-made stuff sprinkled in there. I’m not referring so much to the ideas of the property, but rather the film itself, which is absolutely property of Lucasfilm. You can apply cosmetics and bonus scenes to it, but it’s still a film that you have no right selling.

That quote you provided isn’t a full picture either. I did mention right after it, “I’m fairly certain that since the CGI was commissioned, by all rights that video belongs to the Fixing Disney Star Wars team. We would have to communicate with them or settle some sort of deal in order to use it.”

I never “shar[ed] their content”. I sent a private video link back to them! LMAO! How is that a breach? Clearly you don’t like accepting ideas from people unless they’re giving back money. Scummy scummy scummy.

You are way too optimistic if you think that shit is ever going to show up on here. Maybe with some fringe editors, but the main editors here aren’t going to touch that garbage with a 6 foot pole. That’s if it’s ever released, lol. I wouldn’t be surprised if they bail out.

EDIT: Perhaps you’re referring to the image I shared with this forum? In that case, I still don’t see the problem. It’s a static image, hardly much of a concern whatsoever.

Guess you went back and actually saw you DID say that, although it “didn’t sound like” you, lol.

They’re not selling a movie. Saying they have no right to sell a movie is correct, except they’re not doing that, so…

It’s quite funny that you say nobody on this forum would give a shit about their work when you and others had a whole talk about using their footage, haha. Just gotta wait for those darn watermarks to come off right?

That was before I and many others realized how many fantastic people are on this forum who can do that sort of thing without engaging in nefarious practices.

And they ARE trying to sell the movie itself. Here is your proof:

Yes, it would be free after 2 months, but the first 2 months are illegal since they are trying to sell access to the entire film.

They’re NOT selling the movie.
It’s a donation page where they will share their finished edit for people who helped out with production. You are not paying for a copy of the film and they are not selling the film.

if i listen to some music on YouTube Music, I haven’t bought every single song on the site. That’s not how it works.

Nope, it’s absolutely not. As I said, if I donate money towards something and they share something with me as an early thank you, they’re not selling me the film. You’re just wrong, but hey, that’s okay. You must feel pretty hyped when you scroll through Spotify and think “wow! I own every song here! They sold it all to me!”

If their name wasn’t slagged off so much, maybe I wouldn’t have felt the need to come and defend them. Keep accusing me of being a sock because I disagree with you or have been watching how you’ve acted. I clearly know your quotes better than you do.

Yeah, sure dude. “Donate” me some cash and I’ll send you 10 pounds of cocaine as a thank you. Don’t worry though, you didn’t actually buy any illegal substance. I just shared it with you as an “early thank you,” so we are both absolved of any wrongdoing.

Coke and filming new scenes for an edit aren’t exactly the same…

If i paid them and they sent me a copy, that’s selling the film. If I donate money towards the funding of the edits and they have a stream of it for everyone who donated, that’s a different situation.

The only reason they have a donation page, is the same reason Adywan or anyone else would have one. To receive some help towards funding some expensive equipment or scenes. If we wanna sit and make weird comparisons to drugs then we can do that i guess? But I’m sure you’re not incapable of understanding why they would have a donation page.

Pardon my dumb analogy. But they are absolutely the same situation. They are selling access to the film.

Adywan does not sell his fanedits. They can do the same as he does, receive donations for equipment and materials or whatever, there’s no problem with that. But you cannot sell your fanedits.

As far as I’m aware, FDSW were shunned from the site before they confirmed that subscribestars would see the film early? I may be wrong on that.

I appreciate you being civil, I’m only trying to defend a team that I think have been vilified unnecessarily. I understand the perspective about selling the access to the film, but it is really sad to be on this site and hear their name get dragged whenever they’re mentioned. They seem like nice guys and they put a ton of effort into their content. Disagreeing with how they’ve operated is one thing, but saying they’re shit and scummy is just not the case. They’ve got some phenomenal artists working on the edits and it’s quite rude to suggest that not only are FDSW shit, but in extention, all of their VFX artists who create that work are too.
