Feature This - A Fan Edit Podcast - beezo - 07-27-2015

Well, [MENTION=8919]LastSurvivor[/MENTION] found our episode that covered his edit of Die Another Day and linked it to the site. After that, the links to all of the episodes showed up in a thread on podcasts.

I was going to do an official announcement here when the website was completed and more episodes were available, but I suppose that's a little unnecessary now.

Some friends of mine started the Gary Buseytown Massacre podcast, in which we get together and generally shoot the breeze talking about two Gary Busey movies. As that show comes out once a month, and I wanted to start recording a podcast on fan editing, they've joined up with me on Feature This, which now has episodes coming out on weeks that the GBTM doesn't.

The website for the fan edit podcast is http://www.featurethispodcast.com. However, if you want to subscribe to a feed that will automatically update when new 'sodes come out, just use either ITunes, Stitcher, Podcast Republic, or whatever service you use, and search for the Gary Buseytown Massacre. Otherwise, visit the aforementioned site for just the fan-edit stuff.

As a disclaimer, many of the episodes are structured such that I'll discuss the original movie first followed by the fan edit. Between the two, I'll pause the recording and watch the fan edit for the first time. As a result, when I record the section on the fan edit, I haven't screened it beforehand to make sure it's "good." While I try to be fair and constructive, not everything I have to say about an edit is going to be flattering.

I would like the podcast to be accessible and digestible to people who aren't super familiar with fan editing, but as of now I don't think I'm accomplishing this. If anybody has ideas, suggestions, criticisms and/or feedback on how I can improve the show, I'm open to hearing them and adjusting the show accordingly.

Thanks in advance!

I was a little bummed there was no mp3 download (I want to check it out, but I need to be able to skip back and forth on the track or it will drive me mad. I call it the "editor's twitch"). Also, If you are committed to doing a regular podcast, you should get it up on stitcher.

Edit: I fished the link out of the HTML, so I'm giving it a listen now.

Understood. I'll look into making downloadable mp3s available on the site. We are available on stitcher through the Gary Buseytown Massacre. Search that and you'll find both the GBTM and Feature This episodes. Thanks for the feedback.

I found the scrollbar. It was hidden in the the title. Smile

So Listened to parts of three episodes. Raider's of the skull, Babylon AD, and Blade Runner.

NOTES:

Intro music often to long and inconsistent. Babylon AD was a perfect into.
Mic movement and breathing noise is annoying.
Too long. Needs to be edited down more. Have set segment length and max length.
Invite guest faneditors.
Talk more about the fanedit than the original movie.
Remember when talking about the original films there is a fine line between funny and condescending.


Hope that is helpful.

Edit: Well, my nitpicks about the site itself have been fixed.
OP:

The Home page is useless, I wish the Episodes page was the homepage, or that the homepage had navigation consistent with the rest of the site. I hate splash pages and hate when links open in a new tab/window for no reason.

Listeners, if you want to avoid a splash page/extra clicks to get to content, go to this link instead: http://www.featurethispodcast.com/episodes

Having a listen now, myself.

In that case, you need to do an episode about "Back To The Future - The Reality Cut". It's an unapproved edit, so it's not on IFDB. But because of it's... uh... historical significance... I uploaded it to Mega and you can find it on Info. (And don't worry about offending the editor, he stopped showing up here 2 years ago.)

I wouldn't worry about offending anyone. We encourage honesty for reviews, podcasts should be no different.
