STAR WARS: Preserving a Saga - My attempt at a documentary film...
Time

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

I set out to document the lack of the original trilogy on DVD as well as the release of the prequel films (like I said a LONG time ago!). At that time I had over 250 hours of footage from I & II’s opening nights where I had interviewed fans both old and new on their take of the new films as well as the OT, but sadly I was robbed and they got all of my video equipment, my laserdisc players, and they also stole all of my films footage, my computer with software (legit even!), the movie files, and took the release forms. They also got my DVDs including fan films, originals, soundtracks and even the VHS tapes (Reason #1 I’ve not been able to seed old torrents). Most of you know I lost interest in Star Wars after this happened and . . . the prequels . . . well, that’s another discussion entirely. EITHER way, my point is, after The Force Awakens my love for the movies was also rekindled.

Now, I would really like to finish what I started (proud, Yoda would be) and this is going to be a challenge for me as I have no idea what I’m doing, but I know I have an workable idea. Jay and the older members of this forum have always been an inspiration and faithful allies to me in all my Star Wars endeavors and I’m here to ask for your help.

I still want to save the OT and I found a way for me to make an attempt at it. I’ve started a project with a few dear friends here in Albuquerque and have approached a few of you via private messages and it seems like it’s rolling forward.

So the basic premise is that the OT much like Alderaan… may be gone forever!

I’d like to document our collective history and efforts in saving it on our own, and more importantly the fact that Lucas has and is actively presenting his own revisionist version of OUR history.

I have a bit of an idea on how to approach this documentary but the point of this post was to official announce this project and also ask for any assistance/guidance the community may have so if you’re interested in offering anything from suggestions, effects, editing, social media or other skills to this project please contact me via PM’s and please feel free to post here also. As always this is a not for profit project - full disclosure we will start a fund raiser to help finance this.

I will continue to update this thread as this project moves forward as of now I’m near completing a proposal of the documentary (also my outline) and have started on storyboards V.1.

Thanks for reading my slightly incoherent, longwinded ramblings, and look forward to somehow seeing this project through.

Word to the Spookies!

Despecialized Edition Piracy on ebay
Time

I used to go crazy when I saw Darkside Dealers pimping my DVD’s and the covers I created on eBay but after a while I realized I could not let it upset me. Someone somewhere will always take advantage of others works.

Sure they may profit from our creations against our wishes but at least they are out there being watched, loved and are a cherished illicit collectable in a fans collection.

Word to the Spookies.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Harmy,

I finally got around to a bit of free time and have been catching up on the OT and related projects and DAMN. I’m so happy to have Star Wars back in my life after the tragic episodes and now that I started to prowl around my old web haunts I’m so glad to see that you’ve done some fantastic work here Harmy! I love the little SE bits and the recolouring.

The Force is strong with this one.

BLAX42 - Doctor Who - Shada BBCi Webcast
A Fan Created DVD Project

The Eighth Doctor: Paul McGann

The Doctor has a spot of unfinished business. Reunited with his old friends Romana and K9, he answers a summons from Professor Chronotis, a retired Time Lord now living the academic life in a Cambridge college. But the Doctor isn't the only visitor to Cambridge. Somewhere in the city is the sinister alien Skagra, who is intent on stealing an ancient and mysterious book brought to Earth by the Professor many years before.

What is Skagra's diabolical master plan? And who or what is the mysterious Shada? To discover the truth, the Doctor and his companions must embark on a perilous journey that will take them from the cloisters of Cambridge to the farthest reaches of deep space, risking deadly encounters with a sentient spaceship, the monstrous Krargs, and an ancient Time Lord criminal call Salyavin. As the Doctor soon discovers, the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.

BLAX41 - The Nightmare Before Christmas - The Angrysvn Special Edition
Fan Synchronization

I first got the Special Edition soundtrack in January of 2006, I had the original but the 06' edition featured a second disc with demo tracks as well as a few cover songs by artists such as Marilyn Manson, Fallout Boy and Fiona Apple. I thought it would be neat to sync the cover songs up with the DVD. This is the result and as with the Lateralus & Ænima discs this DVD also features a Stereo Linear PCM audio track preserving the uncompressed audio fidelity of the
original CD.

The Nightmare Before Ænima - A Fan Edit/ Synchronization

I first heard about this sync a few years back along with the "The Nightmare Before Lateralus" synchronicity but I've never tried to do the Ænima sync until now. Recently I did some more research on this sync and found that there were basically three versions that could be achieved of these three versions only two really felt like they really worked with the film. The two final versions I choose are not perfect syncs but they both have some great moments, the CD does run a bit longer then the film so I have used PC based audio tools to fade the last track out. This DVD was created with both of the alternate audio synchronizations anchor points that I found on the InterMcNets, one of which is listed on synchronicityarkive.com and another has timing suggested on a few Tool forums. As with the Lateralus disc this DVD also features a Stereo Linear PCM audio track preserving the uncompressed audio fidelity of the original CD.

- Diggity!

BLAX39 - The Nightmare Before Lateralus - A Fan Edit/Synchronization

I first heard about this sync a few years back and was pleased when an XVID version was released on the torrents by Jackace299 which was followed by NexPhr3ak0r's great DVD release but these two versions offered an alternate synchronization which uses alternate timing. This DVD was created with the audio synchronization timing listed on synchronicityarkive.com which I feel has a greater overall effect. Another item that distinguishes this DVD is that it features a Stereo Linear PCM audio track preserving the uncompressed audio fidelity of the original CD.

Diggity!

BLAX03: Halloween: The Television Cut - VHS2DVD

File Folder -
http://rapidshare.com/*****/****** - visit faneditforum.com for the information


The official DVD version that is called the "Extended Edition" has never aired on television as it has the R rating (nudity & cusswords were restored for the EE DVD version), it also has an all new remastered 16 track to Dolby 2.0 audio track with minor new folly additions.

SO, that makes it very different from the HALLOWEEN: Extended Edition as the BLAX03 DVD preserves the original Mono to Stereo audio track and the television audio dubs.

Don Imus and the race issue thread.
Time
Addressing the “Race Issue” portion of the thread…

I personally am sick of this whole African-American, Mexican-American and Asian-American PC bullshit…

IF you were born in the United States of America and no matter if you’re black, red, yellow, brown or white and even if you have African, Mexican or Polish ancestry or you may even be a naturalized citizen from another country but the honest truth is you are in NO way an African, Mexican, Asian or whatever…

YOU are an AMERICAN (for better or worse that is) regardless of your color or ethnic heritage.

I propose that we get into an intergalactic war with a very ugly non-human alien species that way we (collectively) can move beyond our petty racism and indulge in speciesism!
