Extremely Silly Website: digital-fanedits.com (Was: Extremely Silly Article About Star Wars Prologue On DVD)

Looks like some people here don't like digital-fanedits.com I think it was a good site and I had my edits there because Fanedit.org Gave me a hard time or at least one person did never even reviewed my second submission and after a year that person could not come up with a reason for it.  Oh well as far as Digital Fanedits I am working out some things with Anti-Matter

Hey Neglify! its your old Pal BloodLust!

By the way I am already in talks with the CW and Producers of The Original

they are interested in my Original Fan-Edit.

 I don't know what you're talking about, but I personally loved digital-fanedits.com. =)

Terminator films
Time

I didn't read your spoilers, but it's a shame you didn't like it.

I hated the trailers for the simple reason they spoiled what could have been a great twist with John Connor.

Also thought Reese was horribly cast. Looks like he just came out of Planet Fitness asking people, "Do you even lift, bro?" Reese was supposed to appear disheveled and looking like he hasn't eaten in a month. Jai should have played a Terminator. Bad casting. Who could have been a better Reese?

Anyway, I'll still go see it because I stupidly hold hope that I'll like it.

Star Wars : Episode I - The Ancient Lore [Episode I - REMAKE]
Time

It's all fascinating in concept. 

 Questions.... Are these videos laid out chronologically? Also, will Palpy always speak some strange new tongue? I mean, I get that you had to do that to force your narrative changes. But it seems to me if you're going through the trouble of changing voices, why not find someone who can give you fresh Palpy dialogue so that half of your film doesn't become a foreign film with the Neimodians also with a language change.

Also, I recommend you find a new method of concealing the hologram face. Blurring looks like it's an episode of COPS. Instead I would create some shadows over his face. There are ways to achieve this in After Effects.

And a personal thought. Gui-Gon with a purple saber seems off to me. And I hated the purple saber at the get go. If you're trying to illustrate his rogue nature then I would think other colors that have not even been used. Yellow comes to mind.

That's all I can contribute at this point not knowing much else. If you need help, feel free to ask for it! These are some strong/bold ideas. I think you should push forward, but really think about the quality at the end of the day. I've learned that lesson in the past to be sure! =) Good luck!

Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side (the TM edit)

Hi,

I am the old user "Trooperman".  I have absolutely no problem with "Shroud of the Dark Side (2007) Workprint" being distributed wherever you want.  It is clear at this point that it will never be completed, because I have moved onto other things (like a dystopia film this summer all my own-see Off Topic).

I would love to talk more about my new project with you if you want, or answer any questions that you have.  It's good to be back!  And again, feel free to distribute my edit-I have a dual layer version that I can upload to youtube if nobody else does, but I don't know what the policy is...they may take it down pretty  quickly.

 If you upload to be streamed, i would suggest vimeo... Only be sure to speed the whole film up a frame so that copywrite detector won't catch it.

The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Possessed said:

I had an idea for phantom menace that I haven't seen done yet exactly the way I was thinking.  It isn't really very radical it's just an omision.  I've seen edits that cut out part of these ideas but not completely,  and in my opinion it only works if the idea is totally there or totally removed.

The whole Jar-Jar being banished and then the gungans fighting with the naboo alliance thing.  What if we skip the whole underwater gungan city thing.  Remove the whole gungan and naboo not getting along idea.  Have it play it so that jar jar is tagging along because qui gon saved his life as he says.  But no mention of jar jar being on bad terms with other gungans.  Then later have the queen ask jar jar for his help, but not show the details of her asking what she needs him to do, then later (hopefully soon as having alot of time pass will make this seem unclear) you see the gungan army gathering.

I think this would work because without Jar Jar being on bad terms with the other gungans and without the gungans having animosity with the naboo, there is no longer any need to have a dramatic "coming together" and accepting of both jar jar and the naboo.  If everything is already assumed to be fine with them, it's believable that Jar is able to gather the gungans all off camera.  

I've seen edits that do part of this.  But in my opinion only doing half of that makes it more confusing.  I think the best way to handle it is to skip all the way over the whole subplot and just have it be assumed that jar jar gathers the gungans off camera.

It may seem vague, but other movies have done things similar without being questioned.

 From experience I can tell you (for me anyway) becomes Jar-Jar in the battle. His antics in the battle are horrifying. And yes, we could cut his portions out, but he's in it so much, you wouldn't have a whole lot of footage left.

The idea is cool though, and honestly how George should have done it.
