I was hoping someone would do this. I love the series for what it is, but would be fun as a movie version. Your version is still quite long. I wonder if its possible to chop it down to about 2 hrs or less?

In my oppinion i dont thing it can be significantly chopped down because the producers crammed a lot in those 6 episodes. also i tried to left stuff that may not have great importance about season 1 but probably are going to be important in season 2 and beyond

no, you should keep at it. I still feel a shorter runtime is possible. And we encourage as many takes as possible (ummm, look at all the star wars edits :D ). There is a lot of material to work with here. Very different visions are possible.

Hmmm. Could be :) I'll have a look at the final product, and excise more if I feel it could be done. But I'm doing Family Guy first after Superman is done. I feel like laughing my ass off during editing for a month or so :) I'll take a look at this edit in the meantime :)

But I only got as far as half-way through episode 2 before putting is aside. And that was months ago. :)

199 min movie :-o !

Keep cutting my friend, that is far too long. This can be taken down to 120-130 min. Start taking out events and even characters!

You should make the edit you want to make.

I have never seen a single episode of this show and I'm not saying if 199 minutes is too long or not...just make sure you cut it down because you want to do so, not because others want you to.

nope, i think it is ok as it is. actually there was that sopranos fanedit which was like 2 3hour movies, and it got approved. this my version, if it gets approved as it is fine. there are many possibilities for a fanedit with this series. let someone else try a shorter version
it may seem too long but i tried to keep stuff about characters that might be important about the series from season 2 and beyond.
this is more like a shorter, more fast paced season 1 with more emphasis on rick, with some fixes i wanted to do here and there

I just hope you didn't cut out a bunch of zombies. It is a character-driven show, yes, but you know the real reason we all watched it. (Zombies)

I don't see how a 199 min movie is too long. As long as g1orkatsos is happy with it and did what he wanted to do with it. I've seen 90 minute movies that feel like 3 hours and 3 hour movies that feel like 90 minutes.

I'm sure this will be great as the series itself was very exciting. Focusing on Grimes is definitely the way to go!

@addiesin
the only zombie kills i cut were
1)when rick goes after the zombie he saw while on the bike 2)and the zombie officer at the station.
there is still a lot of zombie killing that's for sure!

@musiced921
the only time we see the story shift a little bit to an another character is the whole thinh with
Andrea and her dead sister, which was trimmed quite though (and edited the resurrection scene a bit
as i felt it added to the emotional character driven nature of the show
