Help: looking for Prometheus fan edits
Time

oojason said:

Hi b5historyman,

There are two Prometheus fan edits listed in the An Index & Help Thread for Fan Edits and Projects for Other Properties… which may be of interest.
 

FanEdit’s https://ifdb.fanedit.org came up with four Prometheus fan edits on there.

Alternatively, FanEdit•info has three Prometheus fan edits listed.

And a quick online search for ‘Prometheus fan edits’ seems to indicate there are a fair few more out there and available too 👍
 

The An Info & Help Thread for the ‘Fan Edits and Projects for Other Properties’ section… (Searches, FAQs, ‘Where can I find x?’, ‘Is there an Edit of film x?’, Myspleen, and more…) may also be of some help for searching for projects and edits etc, as well as the ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com thread too.
 

Good luck with it mate 😃
 

Apologies, my blood glucose readings were low when I responded (I’m insulin,dependant). I appreciate the help and where to look.

Thanks

Don’t you think I hadn’t already checked? Since there’s been a lack of responses from some of the fan editors on their Prometheus projects, here and on fanedit I was taking a punt that other forum members might have links to the different edits and be willing to share links by pm.

Guess I was hoping too much. Ah well.

Alien (1979): Ripley Does Dallas Edition (Extended)
Time

A few remarks from me.

  1. We don’t need to know about everything we don’t see.
    It’s pretty irrelevant why the cage is there.
    On the contrary when something remains in the dark, there is room for mystery and speculation.
    Hitchcock was a master in this discipline, or do you want to know why the birds became aggressive and why they suddenly calmed down again? 😉
  2. I do not believe that the alien is only keen on humans and has spared the cat, but that the cat could escape (see point 1 speculations).
  3. If you integrate the Dallas death scene, there are continuity flaws to Cameron’s “Aliens”!
    As a reminder: When the camera shots show the cocoons, Ripley tells Lieutenant Gorman that she’s never seen anything like this before!
  4. I don’t know if you have the technical skills, but it would be nice if someone could finally remove Ripley’s nosebleed before the fight with Ash! Because the nosebleed results from a previously shoted scene that was never used and fell under the cutting table!
    In contrast to the cage question of the cat, this scene makes no sense at all. Why does Ripley bleed out of her nose while talking to Ash?

Otherwise, I wish you a lot of interest in your work. 😃

Actually the Alien Queen does not contradict the cocoon scene in Alien (let’s get it right what came first) As I am the guy who mapped the life cycle for the Aliens:Colonial Marines Technical Manual. Brett was being transformed into an egg that would contain a face hugger that would attach to Dallas and implant a Queen embryo. If the cycle had been able to continue, the Queen would have emerged and the Alien would have fed it to maturity and then mate with it. The Queen would then lay her eggs. The Alien itself would eventually die (akin to some insects after mating). This cycle is what happened aboard the Space Jockey juggernaught. If they (Kane/Lambert/Dallas) had investigated the derelict hold, they would have found the fossilised remains of a Queen and at least one Alien. As for it being Cameron’s idea, I don’t think it’s the case, especially when you look at Giger’s Alien book and the painting “Alien IV” You can clearly see where he got the idea from.

When I first did my edit it was only the second time I had attempted such a thing. For ages I wanted to at least go back to my original files spread across 20 DVDs and at least do a remaster. But I recently imported those files to my PC and I’m not happy with the quality. So I’m doing a reconstruction from better source materials. This will included fixing some glitches and making some changes to my edit.

Stay tuned.

Looking forward to this, are these from BD or DVD sources?

Bluray for the regular footage. But most of the deleted footage is SD quality. I’m finding lots of little glitches from the initial edit that I’m fixing now as well.

Would Topaz Gigapixel AI be of use in dealing with the SD deleted scenes?

Never heard of it actually
