No Eleven. Every scene with Eleven up to the point where she appears in Byers’ house was removed.

I mean it makes sense for runtime but at the same time you’re losing by far the best plotline. If anything, I’d rather have a movie just covering El’s story in Season 2.

I hear you. I struggled a lot with this choise.
As I said,my main goal was the runtime and with her whole story the film was just too long.

I want to revisit the whole project sometime in the future (maybe after Season 4) and maybe then I will try to make a seperate film.

Stranger Things - Film Edition (Released)
Time

UPDATED ON JAN 22

The idea for my first faneidt attempt was to recut each season of Stranger Things into three full length films, like a horror franchise from the '80s.
I wanted to create three cohesive movies to watch alone as a recap of each season or for a first viewing without having to watch entire seasons.
Many scenes and subplots were removed and some major changes occurred in order to create an easy to follow and comprehensive story.

STRANGER THINGS

Runtime: 2 hours 49 minutes

Changelist

-Less Wheeler family.
-No Eleven and Benny interaction and no investigation for Benny’s death.
-Less “bad men” searching for Eleven and the boys.
-Less school bullies.
-Less Hopper’s investigation of Hawkins Laboratory.
-No mentions and appearances of Will’s father.
-No Terry Ives subplot.
-Less Steve and Nancy romance.

STRANGER THINGS 2 V3

Runtime: 3 hours

Changelist

-Eleven’s return right from the start.
-All scenes at the arcade have been removed, we jump right at Max’s arrival.
-Almost no Billy.
-Reduced Max and the boys trying to befriend her.
-Reduced Hopper investigating the crops.
-Reduced Will’s visions.
-Reduced Dr Sam Owens. Removed Will’s sessions and Hopper’s interaction with him.
-Less Joyce and Bod.
-No Halloween party.
-No Nancy and Steve conflict.
-Reduced Hopper underground.
-Reduced Dustin and Dart.
-Reduced Nancy and Jonathan at Murray’s house.
-Reduced Demodogs’ attack inside the lab.
-Shortened interrogation of Will in the shack.
-No Lost Sister subplot, only a glimpse of her in Terry Ive’s flashback-memories.

NOTE:

There was an idea to remove El’s visit to her mom as well to create a tighter and shorter film.
In that case I would had put together a new film titled “Stranger Tales: The Lost Sister” covering her screentime away from Hawkins, including Terry Ive’s story and the whole Lost Sister plot.
In case Kali returns in future seasons, I will revisit this idea.

STRANGER THINGS 3 V3

Runtime: 3 hours 1 minute

Changelist

-Shortened Russian lab introduction.
-Removed Billy and miss Wheeler flirt.
-Removed Tom and the rest of Hawkins Post employees.
-Reduced Mayor Larry Kline.
-Reduced Heather’s plotline.
-Shortened Miss Driscoll subplot.
-Reduced Joyce research about the magnets and almost no Scott Clarke.
-Reduced El and Max at the mall.
-Reduced Dustin, Steve and Robin investigation.
-Less Dustin, Steve, Robin and Erica at the Russian lab.
-Way less teenage romance/drama.
-No Russian interrogation.
-No hospital fight.
-No Steve and Robin romance.
-Less Hopper and Joyce romance.
-Less Alexei.
-Removed 4th of July festival.
-Removed Suzie and Dustin’s song.
-Removed post credit scene.

NOTE:

The reduction of Alexei’s scenes and the removal of the 4th of July festival lead to the removal of his death scene. In this cut Alexei serves only to inform Hoppeer, Joyce and Murray about the Russians’ plan and we last see him at Murray’s house.

All three cuts are now available through PM. Any kind of feedback would be much appreciated.

Season 8, being as underwhelming as it has been, has made it necessary to change up certain end game aspects. Which is why I’m making a quick blueprint on the last season to work my way up to with the remaining films.

This is the rough cut of my version of Daenerys’s turn to madness:

As a rough cut it is put together pretty good, with room for impromvent.
But will this mean that Missandei’s death and Danny’s intense look over the city won’t make it to the final cut?

Also, I am and will be waiting for some update for Film 4.

Ι finally finished Film III “A Feast for Crows”… and it was a blast!
I have to say that Season 3 might be my favourite and I was a bit anxious about your cut.

I also have to admit that some things weren’t exactly how I was expecting them to be, but your editing was trully flawless and the whole film felt really smooth and delightful.
As I have said before, this progect is your artistic vision and I am going to watch it as such.

! SPOILERS, I GUESS !

I really liked the fact that you chose to begin the film with a “cold start”.
At first I thought why didn’t you start the film with Sam running away from White Walkers, as the previous one ended, but then I came to realize that showing from the beginnig the aftermath of the battle was a smart choice.
The return of Daenerys was definitely a plus, but I was hoping to see also some of the scenes out from Season 2 you left. Especially her vision in the House of the Undying because of the events of the final season.
One other thing that I was hoping to see and didn’t make the cut was the whole ‘The Bear and the Maiden Fair’ arc. But I understand why you chose to left it out and, if I have to be honest, it didn’t affect at all Jaime’s and Brien’s growth throughout the film.
Finally, concerning the “big event” of Season 3, I was hoping that you would leave it completely untouched for I believe it is trully a flawless sequence. But again I liked what you chose to do. Merging of the ‘mergins’ in a montage between the weddings of the Freys and the Lannisters, was I really smart move. And of course THAT ending. A “cold start” and a “cold end”. Genius.

Summing up, I think Film III was a bit more ‘artistic’ than the previus two films and I absolutely loved that.
I have said it before and I will say it once more: You are doing God’s work here. I salute you, frined.
I can’t wiat for Film IV!

And as Random and me have been talking about on PMs, revealing Bran to be the Night King could make for a more satisfying and dark ending. I could reveal him to have warged into Daenerys, or the dragon, right before the slaughter. It would still justify her plotline - slowly losing her mind; because she would still at this point be conflicted and mad and having burned Varys and threatened Tyrion, but instead of the insanely sudden shift to genocide; it would be Bran/NK who would put the final nail in the coffin.

I, personally, think that the most emotional and dark ending would be if Bran was revealed to have warged into Drogon (and not Daenerys) and performed the slaughter, and Daenerys would kind of just have had to stand for what had happened - making the episode 6 material be more of her having been forced to go Mad Queen rather than chosen to do so. It would also make more sense, as the dragons are many times told to be uncontrollable and dangerous throughout the series. Therefore, Daenerys would try to hold face and pretend to be all just and true about what has happened, when in reality she’s completely destroyed. Her death would also be more tragic, because the audience would be the only ones to know that what happened wasn’t really her (dragon’s) doing.

Either way, long time until film 8 (or perhaps 9/10) now - but tell me what you think!

As I said, this is your vision, so you get to choose how the story goes.
What I have read sounds interesting and I am curious to see how it will end up to the final cut.

But for now, I will be waiting for any update about Film III and IV.

So glad that this project is near completion. I have fully enjoyed your previous cuts and I completely trust your choises and skills for this one.
I am super looking forward to it.

As far as it goes with the changes you want to make to Season 7 and 8, I just hope you won’t tweak things too much.
Despite all of its flaws I want to enjoy the show for what is it. But then again this is your project, your own vision so I will watch and enjoy it for what you want it to be.

Game of Thrones - Film II - A Storm of Swords (Released)

Ι just finished watching both “A Tale of Kings And Honor” and “A Storm of Swords”.

You’ve done something really special here, my friend.
I loved both films and I admire your work, because they both felt like actual films and not just a bunch of scenes from a TV show sewn together. Your editing skills are top-notch and the addition of the LOTR music was genius. You managed to keep the absolute essential to the story parts, while maintaining a very nice flow.

If I had to give you one note and start nitpicking, I would only say that at first I wasn’t so sure about the aspect ratio you chose. I get that you wanted to give a more cinematic feel to the scenes, but I think that at some parts it didn’t really work for me. But again this is just a tiny flaw and just my opinion.

Congratulations once again and thank you so much for what you’ve done. I am super looking forward for your next films.
I know how hard this effort is, but do you have in mind a release date for the next instalment?
