Batman v Superman: The Third Alternative

So, consider me a BIG FAN of this idea! 😄

YAY! I said something of worth! 😄

An interesting thought, but the problem is that it removes Bruce staring furiously at Superman above, which I think is an essential moment.
That all being said, I was actually trying to go with the idea that the girl may have died for the version of the edit currently circulating (the large metal beam cuts off the Metropolis sequence in the beginning and then the conversation with the girl only is in the dream). Because we only see the girl saved in Bruce’s dream, it was ambiguous whether or not he managed to save her in real life. All that is clear, being a dream, is that Bruce clearly hates Superman.

The more I think about it, the more sense it makes to keep the girl alive, I just liked the idea of having something aburpt and violent wake Bruce up since he basically jumps out of his chair when he wakes up in that scene. But having him stare angrily at Superman and having the girl point at where her mother once was does much more for his Super-Hate (see what I did there?).

Short version of post, girl dying means ruder awakening, girl living means more Super-Hate. Logic (by logic, I mean my opinion) dictates that more Super-hate is better for the story.

But it’s your edit and I trust your judgement since I really liked this edit, which I forgot to mention in my previous post, lifes been kinda crazy lately, but when I get the time I’ll watch the edit with a pencil and paper at my side for notes so that I can give you a detailed review since honestly, you deserve no less. Good Luck! 😄

Batman v Superman: The Third Alternative

Also, part of me feels this film may benefit greatly from introducing Bruce Wayne at the LexCorp event, but I also feel his POV of the Metropolis destruction is integral to his motivations for hating superman so much. Also I don’t know if that would work well or not. I would like to see it if anyone could pull it off though. I think this film suffers from switching back and forth between Batman/Bruce’s story and Superman/Clark’s. If it were focused more on Superman I think it would help the pacing a lot.

You’ve given me an idea (that I hope Aluminum will consider since I have NO editing skill), what if instead of showing the last part of Bruce in Metropolis saving the girl as the nightmare, we’re left wondering why Bruce hates Superman up until he has that whole opening sequence as a PTSD nightmare.

Another idea we could add to this is instead of having him save the little girl, we see the large metal thing (don’t remember what it’s called) coming towards the screen and that being what abrubtly wakes Bruce up from the nightmare, with the implication being that the little girl was killed in front of him, which gives him even MORE hate towards Superman.

So, what do you guys think?

Thrawn Trilogy Project -- Want Your Input

One of our original ideas was a “soundtrack” based off of the story, with the new character themes and cues for the battles and chases and pivotal scenes. We were going to have artwork for some of the tracks. I like the idea of having the art and sound more interactive. And if the artwork idea is something you really like, that could have more emphasis.

The soundtrack idea sounds amazing, it could become a companion to the novels by being something you listen to while reading them. Matching the music to to what’s happening in the book could be difficult since obviously everyone reads at a different pace but I’m sure some scientist somewhere has spent too much money to find out what the average reading speed is. 😄

Fan edit visual and audio transition help

Hello, I made a fan edit of Return of The Jedi using Harmy’s Despecialized Edition as the source, all the cuts are done, but I have no idea how to do visual and audio transitions, this makes the cuts incredibly JARRING, I would really appreciate it if someone would help me with this, doing them or just giving me tips on how to do these. Thank you very much for help. 😄

P.S. Someone also mentioned something to me about “color correction”, frankly, I don’t even know what that is. Sorry for newbie knowledge. 😦
