Giger’s Alien, that is, which I can get off the 'spleen.

Have you though about using any of the footage from the Alien Makers DVD series?

I’ve skimmed through those but never watched them completely. Never saw any footage in them, is there any?? That’d be bonkers.

Yes there is more Nostromo footage

HEY, so story is, like I said in my previous post from two hecking years ago(!!!) I totally finished the Alien Uncut edit.

I just always hated it because the framerate is a not very consistent 30, the quality isn’t what it should be, and it’s a ridiculous 20 gigabyte file. I made the damn thing when I was just starting to get into video editing and I had no idea about anything.

That being said, from what I remember I was always happy with the way it was cut. I got all the shots just where and how I wanted them.

So I was skimming through some old hard drives randomly and decided “what the hell?” I’ll upload that Alien edit I did so many moons ago. When I rewatched it, all the problems I mentioned above really didn’t bother me as much as they once did. I also re-encoded it to a much nicer file size for you guys.

If anyone is still interested in this ridiculous behemoth, I hit up a 'spleen mod yesterday, so hopefully I’ll be putting it there.

I still maintain that I might go back and redo it from the ground up one day, but I thought everybody should at least see it as it is now.

I’ve always felt bad about not releasing this edit or going back to give it another shot. It makes me so sad - the amount of fan projects I see on this site that just drop off and never get finished with no closure at all, and I didn’t want mine to be one of those.

I’m really interested in seeing this to see how much more you have expanded it over my edit.

use only star wars stuff,not ww2.

Sounds good. I agree.

fill missing scenes with pics and use unfinished scenes or fx.

I have so many pictures that I might have to limit my use of pictures to the most important occasions, but I think I agree with you, I should use pictures to fill in some holes. Thanks!

i´m very interested in this.

I’m glad. No disrespect to any other editor, but TM2YC’s Lost Workprint edit was probably my favorite fan edit if all time. I love the inclusion of all these deleted scenes! Hopefully I can do justice to the edit in those portions I’ve taken on.

Was that edit released? Never saw it.

One other thing I thought of in regards to the opening crawl. Would it be possible to recreate it by actually filming it like it was originally done. I’m sure there are people here that know what the complete text was. I think that would look better than creating it digitally. Just a thought.

That would be fun. Not sure anyone is willing to go to those lengths but that would be nifty.

If I knew the text I may give it a shot

Are you going to remove the matte shots by utilizing old photos like this:

Question, why not use all the B&W deleted content from the OT? If the goal is to make as extended a version as it can be made, with as much alternate material as possible, then I don’t see a reason to leave out such material. If the edit is to be like a restoration of a partially lost movie, then featuring material in different quality, and text/stills substituting footage should not be a hindrance.

I agree. But it seems like a fan created “Lost Cut” of SW has been talked about for ages. I would be shocked if we ever really see one.

For many, many years I have thought about doing a faux version of the Lost Cut. A few have said over the years that they were going to do one but still no finished product has ever surfaced. I am now contemplating starting one. Has anyone cleaned the scenes from episode 4 from the bluray? Also, has anyone ever done a better restoration of the original complete Jabba scene as seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw1gkNd6Z_8

NOOOO…to all your questions…

I guess I’ll just do it myself
