The 'Final' Season Of The Simpsons (Possible Team Project?)
Time

https://zaredit.files.wordpress.com/2020/07/simpsons_ver47.jpg?w=518

For years, we’ve all heard the familiar chorus,  “They’ll never stop the Simpsons, have no fears, we’ve got stories for years”…well, consensus on the internet is they ran out of stories and drive to do better decades ago, yet they persevere, the bar considerably lowered year after year…oh sure they’ll be a few standouts, but they’re spread far beyond and even between what we usually get.

So the challenge lies with the fans…let’s create the ideal 26-episode  ‘final season’, we can achieve this by carefully cherry-picking the best of the weaker seasons, or ones that provide sufficient ‘closure’ for some existing plot points and character arcs, or by fan-editing/fan-mixing episodes together, (this can include material from the various Treehouse of Horrors also), to add to the ‘season’.

Youtube Channels like ‘Dark Simpsons’ shows editing episodes into something totally different can be achieved, so we surely we can attempt it on a bigger scale.

Here are a couple of articles that can help

That’s fair enough, I just think it would give more of a darkside nightmarish sith vibe if it was all red. Like the vision was induced by palpatine.

Hmm, actually that’s a good point too, as the planet/backdrop Kylo finds the wayfinder on does have a crimson sky, it would compliment the previous scene and tone logically if the scene were regraded.

Maybe change the colour correcting to Red, Mustafar.

Since it uses a similar location to the final act in Force Awakens, I reckoned it would work that way as a ‘call back’ to Ben’s first major defeat at Rey’s hands and would serve as a “redemption” for him if he could defeat the spectre of Vader there, proving he’s now ‘ready’ for Rey.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread
Time

I recently found the Kylo vs Vader fanfilm. I think one editor a while back borrowed something from this for a Force Awakens edit, but I think it could be integrated into Rise of Skywalker fairly easily and be used to inform the audience of a lot of Kylo’s motivations. You could also push his journey to Exogal up to follow from it

Here’s what I came up with (password: fanedit)

Ideas and an eventual edit: '<strong>Red Dwarf - The Promised Land</strong>'
Time

Just a collection of thoughts I had on the recent Red Dwarf special that aired this past Thursday

Another jolly old boys from the Dwarf outing, fair, but flawed, and a lot of padding and squandered opportunities.

The first fifteen or so minutes can definitely go, it’s full of scenes that don’t lead anywhere (what was with that awful sex change operation exchnage?), how about we start the story off with the crew finding Holly’s back-up floppy? Also we can cut out the Cat, Kryten and Rimmer trying to convince the cats Lister isn’t a god.

I’d like to see if it’s possible for the cats to somehow NOT lose their faith in Lister, as that is such cliched writing, I’d also like to end the story on Rimmer actually dying after he saves the ship from the bomb. Cat lamenting Rimmer’s loss and asking who he won’t like now still fits with the storyline of Rimmer feeling unloved.

I realised that if I remove Lister’s followers losing their faith, I’d have to remove the whole portion of the plot that deals with the Anubis stone…which of course is the macguffin that leads to Rimmer becoming diamond light and saving the ship. Rewatching the episode I still think it’s entirely possible to make it so the 'Dwarfers never give up the stone when they first confront the cats at the Iron Star, and it still plays a role later in giving Rimmer his powers.

I was thinking of using something from the first five or ten minutes of the episode, where it’s just Kryten, Cat and Lister together, and placing it towards the end, repurposing Lister’s directionless behaviour as being more to do with the fact Rimmer is gone than being the last human alive. On further inspection, I think I probably could use the minimal amount of the sex change operation joke to close the episode out on a wacky note.

I really like the idea of delaying the return of Ben and then ending the movie with/near that scene. But you irised the wrong way 😉 (the final shot is supposed to disappear as a small circle shrinking into the middle of the screen). Unless, of course, it was stylistically designed to be that way.

Total blunder on my part, though I kind of like reversing the iris, when timed with the music it does make look like the iconic fanfare is coming at you.

You could have the celebration go like in the film, destroyers being downed etc, when finn and Poe are searching for Rey you could then cut to the shot of Ben’s hand rising up the cliff and saving Rey.
The rise of skywalker.

I’ll try out your suggestions, I’ve had a lot of fun today experimenting with different takes on scenes.

I like the execution of Ben surviving in this version, but what would happen next?

Different editor here, but the two options could be

-End the movie almost as soon as the kiss happens

-Edit it so kylo is on Tatoonie with Rey as she buries the lightsabers, using footage of him from the desert earlier.

I chose the former for my try-out edits

That worked surprisingly well, you could save the scenes with Ben and Rey till after the celebration, making it the the final scene.

Thanks, and yeah, as nice as it is to close on the falcon, it’s Rey and Kylo’s story and they should be highlighted, feels kinds of random to have Poe be the last character you see.

Avengers: Cosmic Quest (a WIP)
Time

Obviously I missed my Christmas release window, that’s because the DVD came a little late (sometime around mid-January), and I got caught up with other projects. I recently found the time the last few weeks, I pieced together the edit on it’s own, but then a different idea occurred to me, and I might end up combining it with Infinity War.

I’m probably going to do a combined 2-in-one edit where past Thanos doesn’t show up after Thor kills the present version , and when the world is restored by Hulk, there is no final showdown.

Deadpool 2: X-Tra Dead (Released)
Time

I’ve been working on a new Deadpool 2 edit. Instead of making use of deleted scenes, I made use of some of the promotional material, some of which was also in widescreen, which allowed for easier integration.

X-Tra Dead includes the following

-The “No Good Deed” Short as the opening scene
-Celine Dion in person performing “Ashes” (the music video has been edited to reduce the amount of film scenes)
-Cameo from Diplo, French Montana and Lil Pump
-Alternative end credits sequence using a TV spot
-Some footage lifted from “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” (not that much, just enough for an additional McAvoy cameo)

Here’s a sample utilising the Dark Phoenix footage. Password to access is fanedit.

Doctor Who - Fan Edit Ideas
Time

I recently rewatched WhoFlix’s edit of this episode, looking to see what he had done here that I could differently, he had used all five instalments of the minisode series Pond Life as well as the DVD exclusive Asylum prequel to create an extensive pre-title sequence. I came away from the edit thinking not all of Pond Life ought to have been used, particularly the nonsense with the Ood on the Loo and his housekeeping role, or the bits that led into Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.

I made the decision to use the first and the last of the Pond Life shorts, in this case reversing them in order so as to create a brand new ending for the episode. The months that date the shorts can easily be interpreted as being part of a prior year and the early stages of the next, seeing as no actual year is specified.

The changes

-Added Pond Life episode 5. Removed credits at the end
-Titles now come after Amy says she needs The Doctor.
-Asylum prequel plays after the titles
-Narration and shots of the Dalek statue from the original pre-titles of Asylum have been cut
-First few moments with Oswin removed to omit producer and director credits
-Episode carries on as normal until we see The Doctor operating the console uttering the words “Doctor Who?”
-First episode of Pond Life plays

Star Trek: Picard Episode One Edit
Time

Watching Picard, I thought up a concept for a non-essential episode one edit. This would not be an ‘go-to version’ that replaces the original episode, but an alternative viewing experience.

Intention

-Use Short Trek’s ‘Children of Mars’ as the pre-titles
-Remove the attack that kills Djaq, keep her alive
-Imply Picard has no problem with getting a mission approved by Starfleet
-Use footage of episode seven to have Picard visit Riker and Troy at the end of the episode, where they see him off.

That’s what I’ve got so far.
