Interesting points [MENTION=10512]geminigod[/MENTION], I guess my thinking re: Mix vs Fix is the editors intention, rather than the audience's reaction/expectation. If the editor wants to improve the original film, it's a fix, if the editor wants to create an entirely different experience of the film as an alternate experience to the original, it's a mix. So, when editing, do you plan to have your edit replace the original movie, or sit next to it on the shelf?

That is a good way of thinking about it and does make more sense to me that this information might be useful to a viewer.

What did you think about my TV-to-Movie comment?

I agree that the vast majority are actually TV-season-to-mini-series, or TV-season-to-really-long-movie, but for the sake of convenience, TV-to-movie is fine.

So what would a Movie-to-TV be classified as?

Speaking for myself, that's never how I plan a fanedit. I think up an edit that I'll want to work on and an edit I'll want to watch. Maybe I'll want to watch it instead of the original and maybe I'll watch it in addition, and maybe my preference will change from time to time.

Maybe a viewer will want to put it next to the original on their shelf or maybe they will want to replace the original with it. That's up to the viewer. It doesn't make a difference to my starting fanedit idea.

And if they don't want to watch my fanedit at all I guess that makes it a Fan Nix.

Big Grin

I guess I was trying to describe the philosophical difference between the two categories, rather than the literal way in which the viewer plans to organize their shelves.

I'm pretty sure this has wandered far-enough off-topic that I can suggest a new thread be started if y'all wish to discuss this further.
