    talk about your favorite fan edits that you've made or watched here (BUT DO NOT LINK TO THEM). I make fan edits when I can't cope with my life anymore. some fan edits I've made:

    1. the hobbit - who hasn't made a fan edit of the hobbit? I have made three sets. 1 set condenses it to 1 film, with an extended edition that includes Gandalf's necromancer plot line. the 2nd set is a 2-parter that reconstructs the original story structure of the films before they were expanded into 3 movies. the 3rd set is a trilogy that basically just takes out the stuff I find annoying, and puts the destruction of Laketown at the end of film 2.
    2. lord of the rings - I don't know how many of these I have. one was where I squished everything into 1 film to see if I could. after seeing the theatrical cuts in theaters, I made my own theatrical cuts of the trilogy– keeping them as streamlined as possible while still incorporating what I perceive to be the essential bits of the EEs. I have practically never stopped working on fan edits of these movies since I was 14. I think I did book edits once– six films instead of 3, restructuring them to Tolkien's original structural conceit.
    3. beauty and the beast - I made a fan edit that is basically a collage of the animated film, broadway musical, and live action film. it is 3 hrs long and includes an intermission.

    and last but not least, I am prepping work for a conceptual edit of the sinking of the Titanic. Its goal is to act as a precise reconstruction of the sinking of the ship. It will begin the moment the ship hits the iceberg and will end when as soon as it disappears beneath the surface of the sea. I will cut between A Night to Remember, the 1997 film, the 1996 miniseries, the 1953 film, and the 2012 miniseries. I have no idea how it's going to work but I'm working with 6 hrs of footage of sinking sequences. It will be 160 minutes long.

    DO NOT WATCH ANY FAN EDITS. EVER. what are your favs?

    Also it will all be in black and white so it’s easier to match them

    but don’t watch

    I once accidentally edited a fan. It no longer worked after that.

    I’m surprised that nobody has tried to edit the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars special into Ep. IV. I’d be interested in somebody doing that, just to see what it does to the movie.

    If you could make any fan edit, what is the concept and why would you make it?

    I would edit the deleted scenes back into Master & Commander just because it's an amazing journey to a long-gone world, and I want to spend more time there.

    Too many planned to list, not enough done to fully enjoy ;).

    I've completed ones for AOTC, Masters of the Universe and Star Trek: The Motion Picture (mostly). Have detailed plans for TPM (but keep having more ideas about how to further enhance it, so even though I bought a hard drive to start working on it immediately after TPM 3D came out in theaters, I keep sidelining it as those new ideas emerge), as well as edit plan for turning TFA into a prelude to TLJ. I've racked my brain on what to do with ROS but there's seemingly no way to save that through just an edit, unfortunately- though I've come close with some ideas. Also intend to do extended ultimate cuts and my own personal preferred cuts of the original trilogy one day. More detailed ideas are jotted down for a ROTS/Siege of Mandalore edit as well.

    2001: Short Version, Covenant frame story with Prometheus as main flashback story, The Hobbit trilogy-as-two-films from a LOTR film POV, Matrix Reloaded + Enter the Matrix combo and a Rocky IV/Creed II edit focusing on Drago's story are all high on my to-do list once i get other projects settled.


    As for ones that aren’t mine, I know there’s a supposedly very good one for T3 that removes the more parody-like humor moments as well as the various lines of dialogue that are continuity errors. It also redoes a lot of the T-vision scenes’ HUD data.
