That was a really interesting listen Beezo, thanks. The discussion ranged away from fanediting and onto general film biopics, which was interesting too. The Hendrix discussion reminded me of 'Selma', which is another biopic that for legal reasons couldn't use a single word of the original material. In that case it worked 100% but I can't speak to the André3000 film.

FYI: There's already a David Bowie biopic... sort of... called 'Velvet Goldmine'. It's really good fun so check it out. with Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the kinda Bowie character and Ewan McGregor as basically Iggy Pop. Here is the official 90s trailer...



Being obssesed myself with film history and graphic/font design, I enjoyed the obsessing over the logo and font bits...

- A little more info on the vintage Columbia logo: The Columbia logo is pulled from the Blu-Ray of Easy Rider. Quality wise, that's just how the logo looks. I've also got the new 4K scan of Taxi Driver on Blu-Ray and it looks the same. This was the same logo used for the entire period in which the film takes place (Not just 1969).

- On the end credits font: IIRC It's the same font (and same size) as the original movie but I made it much more bold. You never know what size screens people are going to watch fanedits on, so I'm always concerned about legibility. I think I could have afforded making it thinner though and maybe chosen something a little less plain.

The final "It's better than Sgt. Pepper!" was my little cheeky joke (Hence the exclamation mark). But I guess without a winky  Wink  face that doesn't come across. It definitely wasn't supposed to be stating it as a fact (I love The Beatles too). It's referencing the famous friendly rivalry between Wilson and The Beatles with each record designed to top the last. e.g.

The Beach Boys Today! (march 1965)
Rubber Soul (December 1965)
Pet Sounds (May 1966)
Revolver (August 1966)
??? SMiLE ??? (January 1967)
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (June 1967)

There's an alternate dimension where Smile gets released in January 1967 and The Beatles have to top it with a bold concept album about their childhoods in Liverpool (Which they were going to do before it morphed into the quasi-concept Pepper LP). etc etc

My ending hasn't totally worked for some people clearly. I was trying to make it feel upbeat but after hearing this, I thought perhaps I should have embraced the final note the Dano material ends on and gone for all out depressing and sad. It would have been a bummer would have packed more of an emotional punch. I can see ways that the material could have been edited to strongly support that.

By the way, I did briefly start on an edit of the Cusack stuff, just out of sheer curiosity (while I still had the source files on my hardrive) but instantly realised it wasn't all that interesting.

Thanks again, I'm glad the edit was enjoyed by all.

Is this podcast not also on iTunes then?
