The Making of SPLIT UNBREAKABLE GLASS...

...
is a 40 min deep dive into some of the techniques and issues faced while pulling this edit together.

Though the narrative restructure is not revealed, the colder you see the FILM itself (IFDB below), the better….

You are correct people should certainly watch the edit before seeing this. I love that I went into the edit after only reading the thread and a few reviews. Watching this first wouldn't have ruined it but might have tempered the "awe" effect. Several times as I was watching the edit the second time (after watching the original movies)...I would catch something and think, "how in the hell did he do that?" Seriously, Wraith pulls some very tricky editing in places. This documentary IS a spoiler for a few of those things. If you watch the edit. Then watch this, you will be impressed. If you do like I did and watch the edit and then watch the original blu rays then watch the edit again...THEN watch this you will be amazed.

The narrative timeline looked like it might be as big as my kitchen table.🤣😂

By all means PM me on any bits that still baffle… I obviously can’t go into the BIG stuff in the video, this thread or other thread. The reveal must be in watching, but I’m more than happy to be open and share via PM. The more we all share, the better and more creative everyone becomes.

A number of editors have shared with me things that upped my game… pay it forward I say. Heck, we all watching making SPFX videos, and I’ve never built a wire frame digitally (and never will)…. But I love to know and see how it’s all done…

Even though I have yet to review the edit (still trying to figure out how to put my sheer awe into words) I'm going to say a few things about this making of...

It's an absolutely amazing self- inflicted expose into what goes on in the mind of a frustrated genius faneditor.

You should NOT watch this until you see the edit. There are a few spoilers. You get to see how Wraith accomplished some complex editing. Wipes, fades, midsentence cuts and segues, editing existing music cues, adding new ones, pans in and out, hiding things hard to remove, masking, etc. A timeline of restructuring narrative ideas the size of my kitchen table...

If you were impressed by the edit even close to the amount that several of us were, you should watch it. He's letting you in...to his mind...briefly. It's very rewarding.

Very highly recommended!

Due to YouTube's crazy operation of how copyright claims are disputed, despite 26 of the 27 being disputed successfully under fair use provisions, the use of GLASS has been rejected resulting in the video being blocked in some regions.

This is nuts since the video is clearly educational, transformative, free, uses only small portions, is journalistic in nature and cannot supplant the original. It is legally flawed since there are a huge number if such videos out there… I mean, redlettermedia etc….

I have thought of a few extras I could drop in while keeping it spoilerish free...

I'm also planning on a full VIDEO COMMENTARY, explaining EVERYTHING over the length of the whole film, with captions, picture in picture, un-used ideas and transitions, rejected scoring options, rationale and narrative comment and more, if there is appetite for it....it is a lot of work to one of those (last done for THE THINGS).

As i admire such work as do i think the benefit of this would be minor because perhaps a handfull of people would watch it. So you‘ ve to make the choice if a handfull is enough of interest for you to do it.

Handful works, since I will probably forget this all in due course and I'll certainly want to jog my own recall frankly.

So, the content for GLASS has again been rejected again, despite a detail articulation by moi of why it falls under fair use for this video. The video is still available but blocked in a few regions (but it won't tell me which). It tells me less than 10% of viewers are impacted. PM me if you are impacted.
