This is a massive reworking of the series, partly inspired by William Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar". The edit focuses on the events leading up to and following Caesar's assassination, recasting Brutus as the main character.
First and foremost, this was an experiment in editing - to edit an entire TV series' worth of footage in order to tell a self-contained, different and cinematic story. I didn't want to simply condense the story of the series into two hours, I wanted to tell the best possible two-hour story with the footage that was available. Great care was given to the dramaturgical structue of the piece - I did my best to create a story that fit into a classical three-act structure.
