I keep thinking this film doesn't get enough love. While nowhere near the groundbreaking movie that 2001 was, it's still a nice little space adventure.

I'm currently re-editing it to bring it a bit more in line with the style of the original. Here's the plan (I've done a lot of this work already):
  • Gone are the voice overs
  • Downplayed the cold war storyline
  • Drastically reduce or completely remove the synth music and replace it with classical music
  • Less chatting about what they're doing as they're doing it (bringing it more in line with 2001)
  • SPACE IS SILENT (minus music)
  • New opening (not really new, just the bit with Bowman confronting the monolith in Jupiter orbit from 2001)
  • Title cards created to mimic that from 2001 (Jupiter Mission: Circa 2001, Earth: 7 Years Later, Jovian System: 28 months later)
  • Removed a lot of earth based scenes
  • Added some footage from Ad Astra and Jupiter Ascending
All of these cuts add up to a movie with a much shorter runtime of ~90 minutes.

Excellent! I do really like 2010, but its tonal differences with 2001 are a letdown. I like most of your changes, but why are you inserting stuff from Ad Astra and Jupiter Ascending?

Still working on the climax and it's going to be difficult to end the film in a tonally consistent way with 2001. It's the part I've been dreading the most.

The shots from Ad Astra and Jupiter Ascending are just to plug in some transitions. Not adding any story elements from them.

Finished my edit! Still need to go through it and smooth out some edges but it's basically done so if anyone wants a preview copy, let me know! There's a few shots I still need to get rid of, however... I haven't done a proper watch through yet.

I may have gone a bit overboard with title cards since there's double here then there are in 2001:
  • Jupiter Mission: Circa 2001
  • Earth: 7 Years Later
  • Europa: 28 Months Later
  • Io: U.S.S. Discovery Retrieval
  • Jupiter: Rendezvous with the Infinite
  • 20001: The Dawn of Europans
I could technically cut these down by combining Europa and Io into "Jovian System" and just getting rid of the 20001 title card since that section is so short. However, I really really like having it there because I use the same font as The Dawn of Man for that section and I think it makes for a great wrap up.

Cutting around the original music score became pretty challenging. I've done the best I could but it still crops up here and there, sometimes a note during dialogue. I've used a lot of the 2001 soundtrack but some new music has been added as well.

It's a short 91 minutes but the pacing has been slowed so it should at least feel about as long as 2010: The Year We Make Contact.

Do you have any sample videos of the rescoring or updated visuals?

Sure! Here's some samples. The first is the new waltz docking scene I created. I might redo one shot, however, in this one.


The next sample is the aerobraking scene:

I think both scenes work really well with the more sweeping classical soundtrack, but making it feel more like 2001 in this respect really draws attention to how FAST 2010 moves. That first 2 minute clip would have been probably 8 minutes with Kubrick directing!

I know, I wish I had more material to work with as I actually ended up shortening the movie quite a bit.

Definitely very eager to see what you've done with this one, subjectzero. Despite some objections to the film - some people thought Roy Scheider was miscast, and the tone was so different - I really liked the film. The Soviet stuff is so out of place now but, having lived through that period, who knew things were going to change so soon? Anyway, looking forward to it!

Hey, subjectzero.

I've seen it and it's great as usual though the HAL lines could be filtered like a radio just like the other HAL lines in 2010. I also want to know what classical music you use for this fanedit.
