view
Brief Synopsis:
MI6 agent, James Bond, earns his 00 agent license to kill and becomes the infamous 007.

Intention:
Create a streamlined episodic presentation of the Daniel Craig 007 era films. Each film will be broken up into three 35-45 minute episodes with a focus on the espionage action.

Release Info:
January 2020
6mbps 5.1 MP4 files
 

001 - Ellipsis
Runtime: 0:43:57
Edit List
+Warning
+FE Netflix bumper
Cold intro of Bond earning his 00 license (removed fade in, now hard open)
+Created background and mask to remove the barrel effect when Bond shoots the informant
-Cut to black removing the Casino Royale intro/song (this is my favorite Bond song and one of my favorite rock songs, but in this format it just doesn't fit)
+Inserted first 20 seconds of the Quantum of Solace intro/song and added episode title card
Open on boy running through the camp
-Trimmed the over the top parkour scenes, now Bond is just chasing him on foot through the vegetation, worksite and road

-Trimmed M's agitated cursing at Bond when he calls at the airport, is transfered to her then hangs up. The majority of her character is just bickering and I wanted to make her more than a disgruntled head of MI6. Hopefully it helps her natural transformation into the more supportive sympathetic role she will take in the third episode.

Episode ends with close up of Bond's face after Carlos activates the charge that Bond places on his belt

I've been mulling it over in my head and I think I'm going to change the edit series name to A Fanedit.org Unofficial Series. Still plays on the Netflix vibe but with distance. The other was a bit too on the nose and I don't want to draw any unwanted attention.

I've added a poll to the thread asking what method of release is preferred? If there is a clear leaning towards a certain method I'll honor that request. Let me know what method you would most prefer.

Also, if anyone has any specific requests in terms of the narrative or other edits feel free to share your ideas. I'll consider any requests. Thanks! :)

I picked the Disney+ option just because I want to see a parody logo created for it, "fanedit+"

I did a weekly Doctor Who (of the two Cushing movies) where I had to start, finish and release a new episode at the end of each week. It was a challenge but fun too.

Looks like a weekly release is the preferred method so far. SO, here's my idea:
1/15: Ep1
1/22: Ep2
1/29: Ep3
2/5: Ep4
2/12: Ep5
2/19: Ep6
2/26: Ep7
3/4: Ep8
3/11: Ep9
3/18: Ep10
3/25: Ep11
4/1: Ep12
4/8: No Time To Die in theaters

I'll be using the Skyfall poster as the series poster and then looking to create a weekly episode banner. Depending on how much time I can get I'll either be using a minimalist approach or a scene from the show.

I was thinking of watching the Daniel Craig bond movies finally, because I'm interested in the new one, and I hear it's a continuing story. I was considering watching fanedits, but most have changes that I'm worried will make them not fit into the continuity of the new film.
Do you plan on making any big story changes? Because I'd very much prefer watching the movies in this format.

There will be slight trims here and there, but I'm not planning to make major changes to the narrative. The main focus is to make it more focused on the spy action and mimimalize the flooz. It'll definitely be the lightest edit in terms to content that I've worked on.

Wanted to check in and see how the sound is for those who have watched it. I did a -6db drop as the source track seemed to clip in louder sections.

I made a slight change to the opening credits. Now each episode will have a 2-5 minute opening scene followed by a new intro taken from Quantum of Solace. The Bond theme just felt too clean and sterile as an opener in comparison. This gives it a bit of kick, or so I hope. Here's how the re-vamped Ellipsis opener will play out.

Episode 2 - Casino Royale should be available at midnight or sooner.

I think the editing itself is fine and works well for the tv show style format that you're approaching.  I personally hate the song, but its more than tolerable in a condensed version as presented.

I've come across the James Bond collection for $30 and I'm contemplating getting it to expand this series to include all the movies. I'm not the biggest fan of Connery and Moore's Bond's, but if people are liking these so far I may snag it. What say you all?

I've also updated the OP with edit lists for episodes 1-6

Real life kept me from being able to do any editing this week. Rendering episode 4 and it should be up and running within 4-5 hours. I'll try to get episode 5 up early this week. I think I'm going to do the official IFDB release at the end of this month or during March. The remaining edits are in the following state of completion: Quantum is 95% done, Skyfall is about 50% done and Spectre is about 85% done. I'll post again when Episode 4 is up and running.

I'd appreciate some feedback on episode 4's length. Quantum is a shorter film and I could probably do it in 2 rather than 3 episodes. I'm wondering if people would rather have it in 2. It would allow the story to breathe a little bit, which could be preferable due to the faster editing pace of the original movie. Thoughts?

Episode 5 is up and ready for viewing. I revised episode 4 to extend it following the 2 episode format for Quantum of Solace. Cut lists for both have been updated in the OP.
