What’s the point of adding the Darth Maul duel there?

Maul is on Naboo killing Jedi, whilst the Queen is trying to save Naboo. The two scenes compliment eachother, and shows us how darkness is growing and Naboo falling just whilst she is speaking of it.

looks great i would just replace the score with the emperors theme

Thanks, brother. I’ll keep the score though. I think it fits brilliantly, and the Emperor’s Theme is used throughout the film as well.

UPDATE

FILM II Preview Clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=201&v=vO8hI4l4w8E

A Storm of Swords seems to land a 3 hours and 20 minutes as of right now, nearly 40 minutes longer than A Tale of Kings and Honor. I have the narrative finished now, and the scoring process is the only thing left (80% finished).

Having worked simultaneously on A Tale of Kings and Honor and A Storm of Swords for a year, I must say i’ve dreaded the cutting process when it comes to this particular edit. Before I finished my cut now half an hour ago, I was at 3 hours and 30 minutes. Before that, almost four hours. Then I’ve added back in stuff and removed something new, etcetc. But now i am satisfied.

This last couple of weeks have really shaped the edit into its own beast, and I think - and hope - that it will be satisfactory to whomever is anticipating this next entry.

Winter is Coming!

Just dropping by to say I absolutely loved the first ‘episode’ and if you can finish this project then it would honestly make the series largely obsolete. While I love the series, 3 hour episodes per season is just easier and more fun for me.

Keep up the Great Work.

Cheers, brother, and a great compliment! Thank you! ❤️

I will!

FILM II

Game of Thrones - A Storm of Swords is the second film in my Game of Thrones film series, a high-paced and intensely structured 3 hour epic of the second season, featuring the musical and stylistic structure of the Lord of the Rings movies to create a wholly epic experience. After the immensely positive feedback and encouraging words from fellow faneditors and viewers from both Fanedit.org and OriginalTrilogy.com upon the release of the first entry; A Tale of Kings and Honor, I have now settled on seeing this project through, and it is my wish to create something really unique, inspiring and fresh to the world of fanediting. I hope this future saga can bring just that to the table.

PROJECT EXPLANATION AND DETAILS

  • Project Started: October, 2017.
  • Runtime: (Currently:) 3 hours and 6 minutes.

The project is ment to have the same structural pace and tone as the Lord of the Rings, while maintaining the story and characters of Game of Thrones, to create a suspenseful, truthful-to-material, one-time adventure in which - instead of watching 10 hours of episodes, you watch one condensed 3-hour long movie with the story fundament of Game of Thrones and the pure adventure and tone of the Lord of the Rings. It will be much easier to watch this with a nay-sayer friend than to ask him to watch 10 hours of episodes with you, as well as to do a Game of Thrones-marathon.

The series’ soundtrack is completely removed and replaced with that of Lord of the Rings, using different themes for the different houses (Rohan for the Starks, Gondor for King’s Landing, Arwen theme (and later when dragons; Elfs/Rivendell theme) for Daenerys), as well as the entirety of the score of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies where suited.

Unlike A Tale of Kings and Honor, which settled on a flattering 2 hours and 38 minutes, I soon realized well through the heavy and struggeling parts of editing the first rough cut that this endavour would be well towards a proper, long epic. The amount of traveling and growth for each of the key players is immense, not to mention the inclusion of new characters that has to get a small, but growing voice of their own, and an end-battle that very much resembles Helm’s Deep - all earning their spot in the spotlight.

As of right now, I am about 80% finished on the narrative, and about 60% finished on the techical aspects - aspect ratio cropping, music and new audio mixes.

THE NARRATIVE: STORY AND CHARACTERS

CHARACTERS WE FOLLOW: Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark, Arya Stark, Jamie Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Lannisters, Stannis Baratheon and Jon Snow.

Other main or side characters in season 2 are visited through the presence of our key players that we follow for Film II, such as Sansa Stark, Joffrey Baratheon/Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Renley Baratheon, Gendry, Littlefinger, Varys, Brianne of Tarth etcetc.

The story for Film II does revolve around escaping the claws that the characters found themselfs in at the end of the last film, often failing to do so, and trying to get to a better and more just place. It’s also about the war of the five kings, and how the kingdom is slowly growing more and more violent and shredded. The film ends with all the characters finding themselfs in even worse places than when they first started, leaving a small victory - once again - to the family of the Lannisters, and a growing tension among all the key players.

Daenerys Targaryen is not featured in the second film entry, A Storm of Swords, due to three main things;

  • her storyline is rather boring and uninventful, with little character growth or narrative expansion.
  • an already filled up narrative, with little to no room for more.
  • the ability to see her in Film III having growned past her previous struggles, and having created friends and oppurtunities for herself during this time period.

YOUR PART IN THIS STORY

I would LOVE for ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism from my fellow friends here at the fanediting community. This edit is definitely not finished, and there is definitely room for exploration and/or major alterations or additions. I am thrilled to hear from you guys, be it what i just mentioned or just well-wishes. Thank you!

GAME OF THRONES - A TALE OF KINGS AND HONOR (COMPLETED)
Time

GAME OF THRONES - A TALE OF KINGS AND HONOR
1st film

This edit, and this series of edits, will create each separate season of Game of Thrones into one movie each - in the style of Lord of the Rings, starting with Season 1.

MAIN THREAD IS OVER AT FANEDIT.ORG. THE FIRST ENTRY IS FINISHED.

[1.1] PROJECT INFO AND EXPLANATION
Game of Thrones - A Tale of Kings and Honor is the first film in a series of Game of Thrones movies, created from the source material of Season 1. The project is ment to have the same structural pace and tone as the Lord of the Rings, while maintaining the story and characters of Game of Thrones, to create a suspenseful, truthful-to-material, one-time adventure in which - instead of watching 10 hours of episodes, you watch one condensed 3-hour long movie with the story fundament of Game of Thrones and the pure adventure and tone of the Lord of the Rings.

Except for the shorter running time, adventurous feel of LOTR and GoT combined, and more condensed storyline, half the idea is also that it will be much easier to watch this with a nay-sayer friend than to ask him to watch 10 hours of episodes with you. Also, much easier to do a Game of Thrones-marathon.

The series’ soundtrack is completely removed and replaced with that of Lord of the Rings, using different themes for the different houses (Rohan for the Starks, Gondor for King’s Landing, Arwen theme (and later when dragons; Elfs/Rivendell theme) for Daenerys), as well as the entirety of the score of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies where suited.

[1.2] PROJECT STATISTICS
RUNTIME: 2 hours and 38 minutes.
FOCUS: Ned Stark/the Starks & Robert Baratheon, the Lannisters, conspiracy plot, supporting characters where relevant, Daenerys and Jon Snow.

As of right now I’ve made out the outline for the first 90 of 180 minutes - or half the movie if you will, created outlines for how each story will pay-off or be continued, and carefully listened through hours of LOTR soundtrack to combine them into different new ones and sorted out the different themes for the different houses.

I’ve focused on characters and conflicts for the first 40 minutes, thereafter focused more on the on-going story and conflicts, which thereafter leads to a massive build-up to a middle-act/middle-climax (90 minute mark) of great conflict to pay-off early story beats from all the different main characters’ stories, and to create some much-needed action for more tension; then going forward towards the last 90 minutes, with one bigger climax to end it all.

[1.3] STORY

  • Ned Stark is the main character, not the Starks. All the Starks get to shine in Winterfell just as they should, but as the story progresses and Ned leaves, so does our focus on his children, Catelyn and Winterfell, only to feature again after the middle-act (100 minute mark) when Tyrion visits after his trip to The Wall, and at the end after Ned’s death, to set-up the second movie.

  • No Tyrion and Catelyn subplot with Tyrion being captured and taken prisoner, and the trip to the Eyrie.

  • No Catelyn visiting Ned and Littlefinger at King’s Landing.

  • Daenery’s storyline starts later, as I don’t want to detract from the Starks. It starts just before Ned and Jon leave Winterfell, after Robert’s speech in the crypts as in the original (which is now much later).

  • Viserys is just the worst brat and big brother ever and villain of Daenerys’ story, and that is all he is. Cut personal scenes.

  • Removed tremendous amount of supporting characters’ subplots to focus on main plots.

  • Removed tremendous amount of character’s dialogues and backstories, and scenes of no story or character importance.

  • Jon Snow storyline at Castle Black is much more condensed, fast-paced and visually appealing.

  • The greatest deal of screentime for Tyrion is the first 60 minutes. In the second act he takes a backseat as he is traveling home, although short appearances here and there when relevant for the story.

  • King’s Landing scenes are extremely condensed and relevant to the plot, and have a very thriller’y feel to it.

  • Ned Stark’s children at King’s Landing, Arya and Sansa, very much take a backseat from the second act and throughout, though it is known Arya takes waterdancing lessons from Syrio Forell.

  • Khal Drogo is no longer of great importance. He is there. He looks badass. He plays his part. But pregnancy/son-subplot, Daenery’s&Khal full-on romance and all the boring and supposedly emotional and personal scenes are removed, with very few exceptions.

  • Khal Drogo dies of his wounds. No braindead Khal Drogo-subplot and “oh nooo, my moon & stars, i love you”.

  • Littlefinger and Varys play their parts as mysterious characters and schemers, although their appearances (mostly) only relevant for Ned or the story.

… and much, much, much more. Any questions, just ask.

[1.4] DIFFERENT IDEAS

  • No Daenery’s for Season 2, coming back for Season 3… Season 2 storyline uninteresting and boring.

  • I’ll create a DVD with menu and all for every movie.

  • I’ll release it in MP4 5.1, and 5.1 DVD.

  • If wished upon, I will create one version of every movie - identical - but without the LOTR music. Shouldn’t be much trouble. This would however be later down the line.

Why are we heavily debating the fan edit future/topic of a guy who’s been gone for four months? Wouldn’t it be better to wait until he is ready to tackle more Star Wars? As of right now Adywan seem pretty exhausted, yet his thread goes through the same ideas over and over again without any feedback from the guy himself.

Maybe wait until threadstarter is ready for some more? Just an idea.

Four months…what are you talking about? Look at his post history.

Nice job summoning him though.

It’s a gift.

To summon him you can also say 5 times “Adywan” in front of a mirror.

LOL.

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

FROM FANEDIT.ORG:

As for The Ancient Lore in and out of itself, all the narrative hard parts are DONE! Things are finally working out, and the main things left to do are rotoscoping, sound effects and color grading (tweaking). This means I’m about 80% finished I guess, and with some math from when I first started this - that means I might have this ready by the end of the summer or autumn.

But that doesn’t calculate all the things that will most likely screw up during rendering - because there ALWAYS is something. Frame overlap, or a color grade that didn’t fit as thought - or a porn video overlapping during the rendering (wait, what?). Who knows!

Does anyone even remotely know what more could be done to help TPM/TAL by this point? Are there any suggestions left? Ideas? I hardly think I will revisit this again, at least not from a narrative standpoint, so it feels like now or never.

Also, I really, really, really want to show some video previews, but then again; I think I’ve showed you guys so much already that if I show more, the surprises might fall short. I think I won’t release anything of great importance anymore up until release, unless - of course - I really feel like I need feedback on something, or something is really, really requested. I don’t know. I like to keep surprises. It makes the viewing experience more entertaining. More fresh.

I will however pick two-three people before a release to preview the full product, to be able to fix things that might have been overlooked or could need some tweaking. Or maybe even simply doesn’t work! >:O But don’t you dare say that, because by that point I won’t give a shit! I will be a firm believer!

Very nice, though I should recommend a different colour Mace’s saber. Seeing as he seems to be a very combat dominant Jedi, perhaps give him blue or yellow. Blue means that he is just combatative, less of a scholar, and yellow meets in the middle

He’ll have blue in EP II.

OutboundFlight said:

This edit looks very intriguing, the dark tone isn’t something one would typically expect from a Star Wars movie but it only makes this edit more unique (so many TPM edits now). Though I do think you went a tad overboard with the darkness in some places, for example the conference room scene where Gunray talks about genocide. It does nothing except add darkness, and after a while it started feeling like a Holocaust reenactment. Also Ric Olie says something right before the Dokou scene, I would cut this because it doesn’t add much and was so fast it made me go back to comprehend what everyone was saying.

The dark tone really makes you appreciate how editing can affect the film’s tone. When you compare this to Frink’s The Ridiculous Menace it’s unrecognizable. I’ve seen comparisons like these for other movies, but for something as heavily edited as TPM it’s very nice to see a fresh take.

Cheers, brother. The very dark grade is something that is only on the preview video. It’ll be different in the final product, and so will much of the grading.

I really cherish your positive feedback. Thank you so much! I agree on the Ric Ollie line. It might be a little hard to hear. I’ll try to improve it, or remove it all along.
