ssj said:Enjoyed the discussion! Especially the history of the Star Wars spinoff universe, and an insightful reminder of why Ep. 1 disappointed.
a few notes:
â L8water? is this a gynecological term?
â someone has rewritten the phantom menace: lukeburrage. see the silent menace.
â fanediting has been done in other media: music remixes. DJs have been at it for a while.
Visual art, too. Think banksy and nam june paik.

Kal-El said:Yep, saw it too! Although I'm not a fan of the Phantom Editor's work. It wasn't nearly extensive enough. Still interesting to see what comes of it.
beezo one small suggestion from listening to "my" Man of Tomorrow podcast. I think it would be better if you slightly lower the volume on the intro music while you do your intro blurb? And then raise it a bit so we can hear the music? It was kind of hard to hear you at times during the intro

A few notes on the Man of Tomorrow podcast episode:
-Kitty is not played by Elizabeth Banks but by Parker Posey
-James Marsdenâs 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 couldâve mentioned X-Men 3 as well because of that, but thatâs nitpicking.
-Also still slightly disappointing that you donât 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-Elâs father is Jor-El, not Joe-El.
-You say in the edit review part that you donât 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 Iâd like to say I did, I didnât 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 thatâs 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 ;-) Itâs also definitely Brandon. Stills of him and the actual 1:1 size space ship exist online (and in my âArt of Supermanâ book).
Thank you for the very kind comments on the gatling gun/museum break-in scene
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.
Trivia tidbit: While the shot of Kryptonite at Supermanâs had been removed, the primary target there was to remove Kittyâs reaction shot of Superman recognising her from the earlier car rescue. That Kryptonite shot going out was an added bonus
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
I will also say you have given me a lot of ideas for an alternate Superman Returns cut where Lois clearly doesnât love Superman any more (although sheâd 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 Supermanâs son, but Lois chose to raise him with Richard (not Robert) because she moved on and doesnât love Superman any more.
All in all itâs again a very good episode, but it boils down to the same two things I noted last time around:
-Edit your podcast after youâve 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 youâre going to watch and the edit. If you (understandably) donât 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.
addiesin said:IMO, the only things that really should be edited out of a long conversation like that are pauses that go on for too long (so-called dead air), loud interruptions (like coughing directly into the mic or someone unexpectedly entering the recording room), or heavy stuttering. These kinds of things are detrimental to the listening experience. Small blemishes that are natural for conversation are not really a problem, even on professional for-profit productions.
Far more important to me in a podcast is that the audio levels need to be consistent (no huge spikes or drops and no sudden switches in the main content from steadily loud to overly quiet or vice versa, basically the listener should be able to set a volume and comfortably leave it the same throughout the entire track) and the host needs to be knowledgeable about the topic, or in the specific case of this podcast, the fan edit's source material.
I can totally see why you wouldn't want to read an edit's thread before recording your second half of your show. You make great points about it causing a bias or coloring your perception, and I appreciate that you want your recorded reaction to be genuine (I really dislike half-assed angry talk, where someone is trying to replicate an earlier reaction after the fact and it comes across fake and forced, Chris Stuckmann does this in his videos for example). For the sake of compromise, if you really wanted to, you could do a third part after recording your planned two parts, where you read up on the edit and make any glaring corrections and omissions, but I'm not sure that's necessary. It is an opinion piece, after all.
