Feature This - A Fan Edit Podcast
#33
Kal-El Wrote:Don't be ridiculous: thanks for picking my edit!

A few notes on the Man of Tomorrow podcast episode:

-Kitty is not played by Elizabeth Banks but by Parker Posey
-James Marsden’s character is called Richard White, not Robert. He was in X-Men, X-Men 2 AND X-Men 3 as Cyclops. X-Men 3 was released in May while Superman Returns was released in June 2006. You could’ve mentioned X-Men 3 as well because of that, but that’s nitpicking.
-Also still slightly disappointing that you don’t seem to edit your podcast? You could have gotten rid of the cough, etc.
-Still a little research required before you record your podcast. Kal-El’s father is Jor-El, not Joe-El.
-You say in the edit review part that you don’t want to talk about the bad stuff but then you mention the (now solved) sync problem. This is another thing that you could have dropped altogether by editing the podcast after you reviewed my edit.
-As much I’d like to say I did, I didn’t create the newspaper montage. It was on the intro of the making of special feature. It did render awkward at first but as we mentioned in the thread, that was solved as well. The edit was 25fps and so was the Blu-Ray (again, nothing I changed). The intro was indeed a different frame rate, but that’s not the cause of the jittery playback.
-The Return to Krypton scene came exactly where you came from; the Blu-Ray special features. It was a BR exclusive ;-) It’s also definitely Brandon. Stills of him and the actual 1:1 size space ship exist online (and in my “Art of Superman” book).

Thank you for the very kind comments on the gatling gun/museum break-in scene Smile

The henchman that died from the piano was purposefully not fixed elsewhere, I felt the majority of the audience would think he died from the falling pillars on the island. Smile

Trivia tidbit: While the shot of Kryptonite at Superman’s had been removed, the primary target there was to remove Kitty’s reaction shot of Superman recognising her from the earlier car rescue. That Kryptonite shot going out was an added bonus Smile

It's a bit weird that you discuss an overly green tint in places because that's exactly what I removed? I do intend to go back to the Kent farm interior scenes in the first act to get the overt red/orange tint out.

I will also go back and try to smooth out the land plot you mentioned, because that was my intention: to make it seem it was Luthor drawing him out, nothing to do with real estate. You had good pointers but I'm going to go about it a different way. Lex Luthor will only say "You like what I've done with the place?" when Superman is on the ground bleeding, and notices the Kryptonite! ;-)

So those two things I'll change for the DVD. Everything else you mentioned is kind of personal preference. You see certain changes I made in a different light than I do Smile

I will also say you have given me a lot of ideas for an alternate Superman Returns cut where Lois clearly doesn’t love Superman any more (although she’d still be less bitchy) and Superman comes to peace with his role on Earth and where he stands with Lois and her child with him. It would be made clear that Jason White is indeed Superman’s son, but Lois chose to raise him with Richard (not Robert) because she moved on and doesn’t love Superman any more.

All in all it’s again a very good episode, but it boils down to the same two things I noted last time around:
-Edit your podcast after you’ve recorded it to remove hesitant parts, coughs, background noises, what not. I heard your chair squeak near the end :lol:
-When you want to say something, hesitate, stutter, and then phrase it differently, simply cut out everything before you found your footing so that it keeps the episode flowing.
-Do some extensive research on what you’re going to watch and the edit. If you (understandably) don’t want to read the thread before you watch the edit, at least do it after the edit? In my case specifically you kind of bring down my edit a peg while the second version -which you gave feedback for- would have been a better edit to discuss.


All solid points.

I'm sort of stuck in a conundrum when it comes to preparing myself for the recording and trying to speak my own thoughts about a project. I feel comfortable doing some homework about the original film prior to recording the first half. But reading up on the fanedit, before recording the second half, can cause problems.

I really want my experience of the edit to be reflective in the second half. I know that if I read a faneditor’s change log, it’s going to alter how I talk about the edits that affected me. If I read a long thread about an edit I’m going to bring the editor’s perspective into my summary, or alter what I have to say in order to accommodate a point of view with which I’m familiar. If I read other reviews of the fanedit, I’ll be inclined to compare and contrast, or perhaps amend, my point of view based off of that input. For better or for worse, I want my pure take on the fanedit and this taints it.

On the flipside, recording “off the hip” causes mistakes. Mistakes like Jor-El / Joe-El, Robert/Richard or Banks/Posey. In this particular case, I did make the point that I’ll likely record a post script to address the technical issues. So I can go back and add an Errors and Omissions addendum that can address the issues you’ve brought up. As it were, I have only seen the troubled version and have not downloaded or watched your corrections. Color me lazy.

I’m surprised that you find the audio hiccups - my misspeaks and sneezing and what not - so bothersome. I never really considered going through an episode with a fine-tooth comb in order to remove these blemishes. After all, this is supposed to be a long-form discussion, not a polished Radiolab episode. However, maybe there’s something to it though. Perhaps a good polishing can make it more accessible in general. There are three unaired episodes already recorded now, but the next time I do a solo ‘sode, I’ll try this out. I’m not sure how well this approach will work for when I have a guest, but I’m open to the idea.

Regarding the MoT episode, yes I will rewatch your edit and make an E&O addendum and I’ll address the issues you’ve brought up here.

Thanks again for the feedback!
