Neville’s Theme / Neville’s Struggle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRlXb-ajca4&feature=youtu.be

So here is a video preview of what I think might work for an emotional Neville’s Theme throughout the series, as well as to better explain Neville’s background (as most viewers don’t get it the first time). A lot of fans have stated that the fate of Neville’s parents are so quickly brushed over and forgotten, that I tried to emphasize these points by adding back in a quick flashback from Sirius’s talk with Harry (to clear the point across that they died to Bellatrix), and also to create a much more emotional soundtrack that might evolve through until DH.

All of the previews look amazing!

Suggestions:
-I would like to see the classic train music from Sorcerer’s Stone return for the ending
-Maybe add some more flashbacks from the first 4 movies in the scenes where Snape and Voldi get into Harry’s mind to get
more continuity
-take out the “We fly of course” scene, Harry and the others wanted to use the chimney and it was possible after they got rid of Umbrigde. It makes way more sense, why they would fly to the ministry wtf
-Add a voice over of Sirius mentioning the fate of Neville’s parents (and maybe Bellatrix screams) when Neville and Harry talk after the DA meeting. It gets brushed over so quickly in this movie, I didnt even undertand it in the first few viewings
-Same with Susan Bones voice when Luna talks about Harry being able to use a patronus. It was originally Bones kid that
brought it up so it was a nice payoff and casting a patronus is a big deal in that universe
-Don’t add music for the big fight at the end, it is supposed to be silent

That’s all for now, good luck and keep us updated bro!

Those are some excellent and well-thought out ideas, man. I really liked them all. And you’d be happy to know I’ve added plenty of flashbacks already. Continuity is main priority for me!

The one I might not alter, although i definitely agree with your logic, is the “We fly of course”. The Thestrals have been featured and teased for a purpose since the start of the movie, so to simply just not let them serve a purpose at the end would falter that entire plotline.

Neville has gotten his own emotional theme in this movie as well - featured at key points in the story to add to his emotional struggle, and that idea of yours is brilliant. I’ll add that dialogue.

And yes, the battle at the end will have no music. It’s so tense and real, just the way it should be.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix [REVISITED] [w/ PoA]

PREVIEW CLIPS

PROJECT DETAILS

When I started out with my Harry Potter Revisited franchise, it was all about acknowledging that Harry Potter 1 & 2 were respectively out of date and non-consistent with the rest of the series. When Alfonso Quaron took over the helmet in the Prisoner of Azkaban he gave the series what they so desperately needed: a gritty, realistic atmosphere in an elsewhere magical fantasyworld. He grounded the series, much like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy grounded Tolkien’s fantasy books for the big screen; in what could have been an ancient, forgotten world.

I took Alfonson’s approach to Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, as well as touching upon the two movies with new sfx, music, effects and colors, and alteration of the two movie’s pacing. Then, after a break, I started to commence work on a much more dreaded task - editing the Goblet of Fire (which I undoubtedbly think is the weakest link in the entire franchise) - and put Prisoner of Azkaban on hold (finding it to be a less complicated task at the time, therefore awaiting that project for another time).

Now, having finished Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets and the Goblet of Fire, I think it is time to complete the franchise once and for all. Work has commenced on Prisoner of Azkaban, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince - all siminoutanesly.

PROJECT PROGRESS AND FURTHER DETAILS

Order of the Phoenix is actually one of my favorite HP movies, alongside Prisoner of Azkaban. The movie is fast-paced, often intense, and it has big stakes for our characters. I think the movie’s biggest flaw is its feeling of complete dissonence from the rest of the series, feeling much less like a Harry Potter movie and much more like a drama/thriller piece. Therefore, my biggest priority has been to establish a greater connection between this and the rest of the series - including remastered versions (by myself) for Voldemort’s Theme, A Window to the Past, Hogwart’s Theme, Neville’s (upcoming DH) theme, Gilderoy Lockhart’s Theme (now more of a Dark Arts Class theme), Quidditch Theme and more.

The movie has also been color graded to remove the heavy reliance on blue (just like the nightmare Color Grade i’ve been through on HBP, just way, way easier - more on that at a later time), and the pacing has been mostly kept intact; although some late-placed deleted scenes have been re-incorporated for emotional weight and a better closure. A lot of scenes has also been removed with Filtch, as I’m not fond of his complete turn to a clown in this paticular film piece.

I’ve also taken my time in creating new scenes (which can both be witnessed in the uncomplete Opening Preview up above, as well as the completed Dementor Attack preview). The movie has most of its scenes altered one way or another, be it color, SFX (which a lot of new sound mixes has been made), music, pacing, fixes or even alterations to a paticular object, character or background on the screen.

Let’s remaster this magic!

And like always; give me ideas, feedback and love! It will help perfect a product I think will be greatly enjoyed.

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

[UPDATE]

So in a time of Disney hatred, countless TLJ fixes and broken fandom I am getting closer and closer to the release of The Ancient Lore, which will hopefully bring back some old magic to the lacky prequel trilogy.

I have completed everything now, and I am just doing audio fixes. That’s really it. It’s insane. But I’m almost finished. It’s weird being finished, because you kind of have a feeling sometimes that the project is just too daunting to complete alone. But I have. It’s weird.

That being said, there will be a V2 version of the project, which will be the final. We are most of us with more than a foot inside the Star Wars community, and there will be suggestions, complaints and minor errors to be pointed out. I am sure of it. So there will be the final cut version, and the final version. The Final Version will be the V2, and then the project is finished.

I would never do two versions of an edit if it wasn’t for the fact that this project has been so massive that to just say “i am finished” and never touch it again would be unfair against all my efforts, and against the community that have followed the edit, awaited it and - most importantly - supported it.

Therefore, you can expect THE ANCIENT LORE within the upcoming month.

Thank you all!

Oh, and please remember; this shoot is taking place in the Midlands, in the UK. So, if you have mentioned that you were interested in giving it a go, it would not be worth it if you live outside of the UK i’m afraid.

What? I thought you stated you’d be able to fly me down there. I’ve taken vacation from job and told my wife to go to Paris and everything.

Now this is somethig I want to see! Are you going to fix the pacing/runtime of the film? I just thought the film was too long.

Cheers, brother! Encouraging words!

Yes, the pacing will be vastly different. The ship hits the iceberg around the 1 hour and 30-minute mark, rather than the 2-hours mark, but the runtime might actually end up not changing too much, due to the re-incorporation of some of the (very important) deleted scenes, as well as some borrowed scenes from a movie called “Saving the Titanic”.

It will be more intense and high-paced; at least that’s the goal.

THE TITANIC [Restructured]

One of my absolute favorite movies, from a nostalgic and technical standpoint. This is not a movie that necessarily need anything done. It doesn’t need a remake. It doesn’t need to be remade. It doesn’t have many problems. It is an historical film with the liberty of adding a working romance into it to intruige its audience and connect them to the disaster that changed the world back in 1912, and that still haunt us to this day.

So why do I do it? I do it because I want to make a kind of V2 version of the movie for those that feel like watching a more “disaster movie/suspense movie” side to the story, rather than the more romance-driven side of it. Simply focus more on humanity and passengers during the sinking; the second half.

VIDEO PREVIEWS:

1. THE NARRATIVE

I want to focus on the story of the Titanic in 1912 - not the additional story set to 1997, and the sinking of the ship. I want to focus on the humanity. I want to focus on the brutality. And I want to put the tragedy in focus. I want us to see how the people - not just Jack and Rose, dealt with the disaster, and how the rich felt for the poor, and how the poor felt for the rich. There is so much kindness and humanity along with the brutality of this story, and much of it is in the narrative already - but overshadowed by the focus on Jack and Rose. And much of it is in the deleted scenes.

I want us to start with the beauty and luxurity of the Ship - just like the original, and the awe shared among all passengers. But I will focus much more on the ship and all its passengers as the tragedy unfolds, rather than keep overshadowing it by the love story of our two main characters. So instead of having Jack and Rose be the driving force and heart of the movie through all of it, I want the ship to be that emotional tool when the tragedy start to unfold, and Jack and Rose more as victims. So we expand the story into three parts in the second half;

  • Jack and Rose’s story.
  • The Ship’s continious sinking.
  • The people.

2. THE CHANGES BEYOND

As for the other changes that I will make, they will be fixes in form of;

  • Continuity.
  • Some digitial effects that might look odd will be fixed, or effects that might actually be missing from the scene (blood, lightning bolts, explosions) will be added.
  • Sound effects and music. The music is pretty much perfect - man i love the score, but I have one idea for an alteration during the sinking. As for the sound effects - they also are pretty much perfect. But I want to add some brutality at certain parts throughout the movie. I want it to feel very claustrophobic, like many of the third class passengers described the event.

3. ENDING

I might end the movie in 1912, on the Carpathia, or transition to 1997 (which might be featured in the ending segments of the movie). As of right now I feel like ending it in 1912, but It might not feel conclusive enough. We’ll see.

And as always - give your ideas! Tell me what you don’t like in the movie. Tell me of a fault you know (a blooper in the background, a missing digital effect, something that looks dated that I can (try) to fix).

Thank you all!

Figured this would be as good a place as any to say this.

  • In your Goblet of Fire edit, during the shot of the dragon arena (after Harry looks around) at 49:00, there are two frames that have ‘750’ faintly in the bottom left of the picture.

  • In the bridge scene between Harry and Hermione after the Yule Ball, Hermione’s dialogue between 1:11:26 and 1:11:30 doesn’t match the video.

Thank you for pointing this out. I hope you liked the edit.

I might re-render a new version down the line to fix these issues. I am happy to know they are minor, and hopefully won’t detract from the experience unless you know they are there.

I just watched the first of your editions and I’m amazed by such mastery, it was like watching the movie for the first time in another perspective, thanks for having this opportunity and I hope you can edit the other films.

ps: the final scene of the chamber of secrets left me hyped to watch the prisoner of azkaban
and the soundtrack I’m speechless.
love from brazil

Could someone send me a PM with the link to the GOF revisited?

Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire is the kind of Harry Potter movie that, as for my passion and mind, requires a totally different kind of work. Just like Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, it has many weak beats and pacing issues - as well as a narrative full of oddities, but the thing that really stands out for GoF is a horrible original score that horrifyingly resembles Pop Music or a weird Potter-remix. The score has its moments, but most of it is really not cohesive as for the rest of the series on-going themes. Like the opening intro for instance (DUN-DUDUD-- EEEH-EEEEH- DUN-DUDU - EEEH-EEEEH) that sounds like some horror house trance music.

You take that back! Harry in Winter is a masterpiece, and out of all the films’ intros, GoF has by far the best re-interpretation of Hedwig’s Theme (the original is still the best, of course).

There I agree with you! Harry in Winter is in fact beautiful, which is why I’ve used it in both SS, CoS and (of course, being there already) GoF Revisited. The opening, I like the Hedwig’s Theme iteration, but not the beginning of the soundtrack (the screeching).

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.

I guess the disconnect comes from the fact that they’re discussing the invasion, not the Sith. If you had footage of the TF doing bad things, then I could understand.

They are discussing the invasion, which is caused by the Federation who are in co-operation with the Sith. I think you’re missing the point. The scenes compliment eachother because Amidala discuss the crisis of her planet, in which - at the same time - we show what is going on at the planet.

The problem is that the scene doesn’t show the people suffering, it shows the Sith returning. The only person dying is some Jedi, i.e. not of the Naboo.

That is because the suffering is taking part during the opening of the movie and after that there is little to no footage more to work with, and when we come back to Naboo during this hearing we now see how even more hopeless they are, because this time not even the Jedi can help them.

this might take a lot of dubbing but make naboo aladaren. so when naboo is getting attacked we feel sad and depreseed because we know what happens in a new hope

If there had been a plausible way to do this, I would. But since nobody in TPM says the name “Alderaan”, it would be pretty weird to never speak of the planet that is being evaded, and remove all mention of Naboo.
