GAME OF THRONES - FILM IV
Time

Film IV, A Roar for Vengeance, is completed.

This was a tricky edit. A very tricky edit. On one hand, the Stark heritage line has gotten very complicated with the death of our two main characters - first Ned Stark, and then Robb Stark. In a cinematic sense, you always need one or more main characters to lead you through the story’s emotions and feel what they feel, by of course having empathy with them and an understanding of what drives that certain character that you root for. Having killed of the two main characters that lead us through the grand picture of the story has left the fourth film in a difficult position. But luckily, I love a challenge - and I am very proud of this fourth entry.

The natural progression for me was to now set up the new puzzle pieces and make it clear very early who are now the new main characters and why. Jon Snow, and Tyrion and Jamie (from their respective representative sides of the story; The Starks and the Lannisters) was undoubtebly the way to go, to maintain a red thread all throughout from Film I and onwards. To suddenly keep focusing on a lot of the different plots and main characters throughout Westeros would of course be enjoyable - as the world is so rich, but in my opinion it would worsen this as a film franchise and undermine the main story and main conflict. Having Tyrion and Jamie - two characters that we now LIKE and empathize with drive the Lannister side of the story, and Jon Snow drive the Stark Side of the story, is in my opinion the way to go to keep the narrative strong, rich but also simple. And a world as rich as Game of Thrones, simple means “followable”.

We also keep a focus on the Arya, Daenerys, Sansa, Bran and Theon side of the story - tho’ in a strong narratively and sustainable way. We have to respect the richness of the world, and the upcoming significance and reward of certain plot points and character moments. Stannis is still very present through dialogue, but he keeps a backseat in this film as well due to the lack of forward momentum and overall importance to the story. His role is much more significant in Film V and VI.

It’s an unpopular opinion, but I personally like the ending and think “Mad Queen” Daenerys was heavily hinted at throughout the series. But I know a lot of people dislike the ending, and I know it’s not for everyone.

Me personally, don´t think this is a necessarily bad ending (except bran as king), it is how it´s done (storytelling, plotarmor, pace and of course things like “daeny kind of forgot about the iron fleet”).

Your suggestion could work, but what to do about major side characters like varys or littlefinger? It is tough to integrate them without beeing killed, they would become just background characters.
The night king could be killed by bran, also. @almightycutie did a fairly good approach on this in his “GoT Redeemed” edit by simulating the nk breaks aryas neck and bran pass into her to let the dagger drop and to stab him.
Also removing plotarmor for jamie, sam, brienne. He edited these faces and aryas into the funeral.

All things ive thought about for a long time, but it still dosent satisfy me.

I might have Dany fly straight to the Red Keep after The Loot Train to settle the Cersei arc BEFORE the battle at winterfell. That way, the night king gets to be the deserved final foe of the story, and we can focus on what really matters.

I will for sure release the last two seasons/edits with two alternate tracks, one with the LOTR score and one with the original GOT, for others to enjoy my alternate ending.

I will come back to this matter when I’ve finished season 6. Then we will have some good discussions.

I have to wonder if there are any deleted scenes for season 8 other than the ones on the home video release. The last season felt so uneven, I’d guess there were lots of scenes just chopped entirely. The problem is that most of what’s in season 8 isn’t effective, so I doubt the parts that got the axe are a revelation.

Unfortunately there are like four deleted scenes released, and they’re all shit. Just like the three last episodes.

Absolutley signed, it ruined - at least for me so much, if not the whole series. Would love to start over again with a friend, who magically didn´t see any GoT epsiode till now, but knowing what will happen in the last season is just heartbreaking and keeps me away from a rewatch.
But this is not a disucssion thread about GoT, so glad to see someone (you) to craft such a project.
Did i get this right, that you used not the original soundtrack for your first three edits?

This is unfortunately the sad truth, that the last three episodes are horrendous. I MIGHT create two different versions/endings to my GoT film saga. But my main narrative will be that The White Walkers win.

Hi Andreas

How are the edits for movie 4 & 5 going? Any eta on them yet? Also…

I saw you mention in a previous post that you would consider uploading your edits with the original GOT soundtrack intact. Did you ever manage to do that in the end?

Just interested to see the difference in how it would compare to your original concept for the movie cuts with LOTR music. Maybe they could be added as an alternative music track. Not sure how difficult that would be for you.

Look forward to the next release in any regard.

Many thanks

Film IV is so near completion you can smell it. Tiny nitpicks being cleaned up, and then I will render the final product.

Film V should not take as long as Film IV, as it’s been worked on at the same time, but it’s further behind.

I did try to create the first film with the original GoT soundtrack, but the problem was then and is now that the Game of Thrones OST does not contain enough cinematic scope to create - what i envisioned - to be film epic’s of the TV series. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit soundtrack does cover this, as well as the fact that it contains some of the most engaging, beautiful and magical music ever put to film.

STAR WARS: Episode I - THE ANCIENT LORE [Episode I Remade /Proj started: 2014]
Time

A new look at the new Ancient Lore format, keeping to the film’s original narrative (or at least very close to it, with some few liberties) and with the new color grade. There will be added film grain later on. My previous color grade tried to mimic the less color vibrant original trilogy, but in the process i think the footage got too boring and lifeless. The original films were made in the late 70’s and early 80’s, so they’re excused.

After this sequence, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan leave onboard seperat ships like in the original film, followed by my “Invasion of Naboo” scene - know with some slightly more brutal tweaks.

I have thought about giving The Trade Federation ship’s some red lightning instead of the yellow, to make it more evil or at least definitely more sinister; as well as change up the (know) very predictable Trade Federation tone. But I’m not sure.

Also, the musical additions and alterations are to make the film more powerful from the get-go - I’m not quite sure it works, so tell me if you feel like it doesn’t. 😃

For some reason the YouTube video is a lot darker than the original product file, which might be due to the fact I’m using and editing in a 4K format, so please don’t pay attention to this.

Edited To Be Wrong: The Fellowship of Idiots [LOTR Parody]
Time

This series, Edited to be Wrong, takes a film or a movie and makes the characters either completely crazy or utterly retarded, whilst still keeping the narrative of the original film.

This isn’t per say a fanedit, more a fun mock-up; but to keep to the rules, you won’t be able to download the video file.

Please enjoy! 😃

TAL V2: As promised.

I did promise you all a V2 after some reflecting and analysis, both on my part and the audience’s. I also promised you 5.1 audio channels and to listen to feedback. This has been the priority.

I can therefore announce that V2 is officialy in the works, and that a great deal of major decisions have been made:

  • The major re-scoring is heavily trimmed down, and as much of The Phantom Menace OST that i can keep, I will keep. This does not include score additions that made the film better and that was greatly liked - such as The Invasion of Naboo.

  • ALL bugs, errors and weird scenes will be removed and/or fixed.

  • The additional scenes with Maul in the forest, killing Jedi, will go. Too fanfilm-y. The scene with him talking to Sidious MIGHT be kept. Let’s see how it looks once worked upon.

  • The new scenes that DID work, like the opening - Maul talking to hologram Sidious on Tattooine - the ending battle sequences, The Invasion of Naboo etc. will obviously be kept. These made the films a lot better, and were changes that were indeed a welcome one.

  • I’m open for adding back in some deleted scenes.

But most importantly, I’m very much opening The Ancient Lore feedback stream again; so do come with suggestions, and loads of them, if you please. 😃

My goal is still to make this into the best, and most radical, The Phantom Menace film there is.

Thank you all!

I think I will do all eight, yes, as long as the last two won’t drain my appetite. But I’ll sure look to finish them.

Film IV and V are being worked on simultaneously, and IV is soon ready for release.

I might end the series with the White Walkers winning, as the final episodes (4-6) of the last season are, to my eyes at least, garbage.

Hey, my friend! Thank you - and I totally understand this.

Unfortunately, Film I was removed from my Google Drive through copyright infringement from HBO them self’s. I do of course take it as a compliment that the high lord’s themselfs have seen the product, but I have to abide by law.

I will try to upload it once more - but in the case of another infringement, I might have to re-locate it to another platform.

Meanwhile, if someone has the edit and could be as kind as to upload it for others and be open for PM’s, I would greatly appreciate that.

Cheers, mate!

My ending will be one out of a potential two. The one I’m leaning towards is that the white walkers win, as to symbolize many a line said throughout the show’s run.

It would be very game of thrones to end the very last film with The Night King snapping Arya’s neck, and then doing his epic walk towards Bran as the music and his evil look all show the triumphant victory over men.

It’s either that, or an overhaul of the entire last two seasons.
