With the UK blu-ray finally coming out earlier this week, I can begin properly working on my planned fanedit of 'Ghostbusters 2016'.
From my ideas thread...
I feel GB16 is a film whose flaws are pretty much entirely down to the editing choices and not the quality of the material, or performers. So with the extended cut, even more deleted scenes and gag-reel material too, the options are endless. It should be fun to edit.
It's got the potential to be a terrific comedy caper with some simple trims. My plan in short, is too remove the jokes and so make it funnier. So removing the improv stuff that goes on for too long, goes off script, or goes off character and of course when it undercuts tension, or emotion. I've got a clear idea what I want to do but not not a detailed plan because it depends on what is possible in the edit.
The obvious title "Ghostbusters 3" springs to mind for the project, although I'm not sure if I'm going to change the title within the edit itself yet.
After all the VisFX, SoundFX replacement, rescoring and grading I did on my recent Star Trek edit, I'm planning on doing none of those things here for a change of pace. It's just gonna be a simple crossfades-only fanedit, so shouldn't take me too long to finish. In fact I've already got a rough cut together of the first three quarters.
However, here is a test clip featuring rescoring and grading (So I'm breaking those rules already )...
- Removed improv jokes not relevant to the subject of the scene (Erin being humiliated)
- Added shot from outtakes compilation (graded to match)
- Removed excessive dancing and silliness
