FanEdit Reviews - Post Your Reviews Here
Time

Vultural said:

By and large, fanediting is a thankless endeavor. Many beg to view, few say thank you.

A shame to see this seemingly become more prevalent too.

Unfortunately even fewer people leave feedback, constructive criticism - suggestions for improvements, or reviews.

They simply move on and make another public request for a link - not attempting to join in with the community - or even in other discussion topics on here.
 

Hopefully we’ll see this either reversed or remedied - soon.

The Random YouTube, Vimeo etc. video finds thread for Beyond the OT
Time

Same here mate, I’d be very much open to the idea of Thrawn - and would be surprised if we didn’t see some of his behind the scenes string-pulling (or inferences to it) across The Mandalorian, Book Of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka.

It should be interesting to see if Thrawn will be the main reason these shows intersect with future stories and culminate into a climactic story event - if that is still the plan given the Ranger Of The Republic series being ‘on hold’?
 

Yet another quality speculative (and well researched) ideas video from EckhartsLadder.

HD version of this image needed!
Time

This is the largest image I could find (though I only had a quick look). Obviously it does have the logo and title but they shouldn’t be too difficult to remove 👍

^ Image can be found here - https://romanian-headline.blogspot.com/2021/04/star-wars-new-hope-book-pdf.html
 

Some of the generic custom cover websites listed up in the An Index & Help Thread for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art… thread may also have a decent quality image.

Good luck with it 👍

A new Star Wars theatrical film confirmed - to be directed by Taika Waititi
Time

‘Taika Waititi talks Free Guy, Star Wars and Thor’:-

www.wired.co.uk/article/taika-waititi-free-guy
 

The part of the article about his Star Wars film…

‘Having finished filming on Thor: Love and Thunder, Waititi is now focusing more on his Star Wars film. “It’s still in the ‘EXT. SPACE’ stage,” he laughs, referring to the format scriptwriters use to set up a scene. “But we’ve got a story. I’m really excited by it because it feels very me.” Has it been a challenge to marry his irreverent tone with the operatically sincere Star Wars universe? “I tend to go down that little sincerity alleyway in my films,” he says. “I like to fool the viewer into thinking ‘ha it’s this’ and then them going, ‘Damn it, you made me feel something!’”’

ITV's Grim Tales, hosted by Rik Mayall (a cry for help in preservation)
Time

I think I remember this from way back when…

Yeah, some of those youtube videos for the show are a little on the low quality side (though fair play to those that undertook posting them up on there).

It may be worth reading through the credits to see if any of the production company is still going, or if any of people who worked on the show to politely ask if they can help you with any questions or info etc? (such as any rare releases abroad, what was the series taped on, who owns the rights, are there any plans for a release etc)

The Rik Mayall fan sites may also be worth hitting up too?

Good luck with it 👍

❕ An <strong>Index</strong> of some OT•com threads from '<strong>How-To's and Technical Discussions</strong>' ❕
Time

Just a general request for those of us with a little spare time and wish help out to others on fan project side of things…

…it’d be great to see more people helping out fellow members of the community in this section of the site.

So if you do have some spare time on occasion, and can help out with any unanswered posts and queries in there, are able to lend a hand, share a bit of knowledge, info, or fancy a bit of problem solving or sleuthing… please do. (even if it something as simple as linking to a video / tutorial / help site / article etc).

👍

Many thanks.

George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator &amp; Time Travelling Revisionist...
Time

^ Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
 

Nah, the RocketJump video can stay where it is.

It is highlighted in Category #3 that there are a few errors made within the video (as does many of the official content / releases talking about Star Wars; let alone unofficial / unauthorised projects or fan-made content) - yet it is still a good example of the power, effect & influence that editing can have upon a film - and certainly did have for this one film in particular.

If I find another similarly effective video on the editing of Star Wars (without some of the errors that appears in the RJ video) I’ll include it in the Category. Or if anyone already knows of such a video give me a heads-up, I’ll give it a watch, and then add it up in there. 👍

 

Re Category 39…

I’ve tidied up some of the wording for the ‘Who Made The Films?’ section. Hopefully it now reads more as not only George altering other directors’ films (something which George himself states only the director of the film should do) - but also that both Kershner and Marquand’s original release of their respective vision, their work, their films… are no longer available… and have not been for some time.

*: on a modern digital high quality format.

 

Edit: I’ll also try and find some time to start work on Category #26 (#24 & #25 are now complete).

Any ideas, info or help for any of the Categories (or suggestions for more topics to cover) are always appreciated…

Requesting fan edits by Hal 9000

To be fair

Being fair… patience is indeed required on here - and always has been…
 

oojason said:

I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it?

 
Firstly, take the time to look around to see how this place works - and doesn’t - before posting requests for projects on here - thank you.
 

Read through the thread of the project you are interest in - there is usually information in there (often in the very first post) on how to acquire a project.

If no such information is in the thread…
 

then simply send a polite PM to the fan editor / preservationist asking them for links or information on how to obtain it
 

…and after that a little bit of patience is required. It is likely that the Fan Edit author / owner isn’t online every day - or even every week - and may have a ton of queries or other stuff to get through before dealing with and replying to your request.

If you haven’t heard back after some time (over a month or so…), then let it be known that you are seeking a copy by making a post in the relevant thread; hopefully other members of the community on here may be in a position to help you. This also applies or if the fan editor / preservationist are obviously no longer about the site anymore.
 

Do NOT simply just post ‘a request’ for links in the project thread (unless asked to do so by the editor or preservationist) - doing so just fills threads up with endless link requests… which often disrupts any ongoing discussions, further ideas & feedback occurring in such threads.

 
Hopefully this post and the previous reply will also be of some help to anyone else seeking projects and reading this thread.

Profuse apologies for that.

Have a good 'un.

Requesting fan edits by Hal 9000
Time

You could just send Hal 9000 a PM - or make a request in one of Hal’s Edit threads?
 

There really isn’t any need for a new thread on it. Imagine if everyone did that - we’d soon sink under the number of threads with such requests.
 

Also, this may be of some help and use:-

I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation Project I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it?

 

From in every ‘Project Index & Help’ thread (as well as helpful threads / sections such as Help, About, Welcome to, & How Do I?)

oojason said:

Looking to acquire projects on here? Then please read this…

(and take the time to look around to see how this place works - and doesn’t - before posting requests for projects on here - thank you)
 
A fair few people join here for a particular Preservation Project, Fan Edit, documentary, blu ray or dvd cover etc. We ask that those who do… also have a look around; see if there are other Projects, Edits or works of interest to your liking. To give the Star Wars discussion threads a read through, or those in the Off Topic sections. To have a think about becoming a part of the community here; and consider not becoming a one-time poster… asking for a link to a project and to never be seen again.

Many of the projects on here have been undertaken by volunteers or enthusiasts who’ve devoted considerable time, effort, dedication and some expense… to locate, preserve, restore & archive - or edit - films and TV programs in their best possible presentation. This is often with painstaking commitment - yet all projects are available for free; not to mention our members also improving upon & sharing techniques, knowledge, technical assistance, experiences - and a few stories, along the way.

Joining up here and then creating a new thread along the lines ‘Give me the link to X’, ‘Where is project Y’, or going straight into a project thread and posting ‘How do I get these?’ doesn’t really fly on here - and will likely be ignored or deleted. Taking the time to learn about a project - by reading through the project thread - as well as how to acquire them; simply making an effort to be part of the community here, and how this place works, even if just leaving feedback for acquired projects, can go a long way…

NOTE: Many editors & preservationists choose not to make their projects available to ‘hit & runners’ or people with a post history of mainly asking for many projects - which is completely up to them. That some people join up here looking to simply take - instead of give something back; not even leaving a simple ‘thank you’, feedback or review, or join in with the community here - and instead move on to asking for more projects… is not encouraged. As above, such requests may likely be ignored.
