Riddles of the Lost Gods is released!

My new fanedit "Riddles of the lost Gods", a fanedit of Indiana Jones 4, is released!

This is Indiana Jones 4 with Mutt not being Indy's son and with other major changes, including removing most of the annoying parts that most fan of the franchise did not like. There's a new opening with Hugh Jackman in the role of the conquistador. Some new little special effects.

Main Changes:

- Mutt is not Indy's son.
- Oxley never been to Akator before Indy.
- Indy solves the problems a bit more, or at least is more the lead of the action.
- New opening scene with Hugh Jackman as Orellana.
- New kind of ending. Even if it's more or less the same as the original (no wedding though)
- New little special effects (not a lot, and a few of them hopefully invisible)
- Some lines have been switched from scenes to others, so the lips sync is sometime average, but IMO it was needed, or it was sometime just for fun, anyway just be aware about that!
- the movie is now very short. About 1 hr 20.

After years of doubt about making an Indiana Jones IV fanedit, this is finaly my try on it.
This is a very difficult movie to edit. Of course you can remove some things that you don't like, but that does not make it automaticaly a good movie.
And after all, if you saw my trailer, there is a question mark at the end... Is this fanedit a good movie?
Not 100% sure about it to be fair, but it is different.
I felt this movie needed something more than just "cut the bad parts".
In my mind this edit is not really what we call here a "Fan Mix" (I changed a lots of things, but it's still Indy 4. It's not like my War of the Stars fanedits for example) but it's not really a Fan Fix either, because every changes here are not meant to "fix" the movie (making Mutt Williams NOT Indy's son, for example does not automatically make the movie "good" or "better". But it's what I wanted to do. Know what I mean?
Anyway, it's what I would call a "What If" fanedit. Kind of like my Alien-Ate fanedit for those who saw it.

Special thanks To LastSurvivor for pre-reviewing the workprint of this edit and to Infodroid for the idea of using parts of the Fountain to have Hugh Jackman as Orellana.

The War of the Stars II: the Future in Motion is Fanedit of the Year at! just announced the winners of the fanedit awards for edits released in 2012 (the 2013 ceremony took place a bit late! lol)
And I'm proud that The War of the Stars II the Future in Motion won the same award as the first fanedit (The War of the Stars: A New Hope Gindhoused - 2010).
So now TWOTS II is Fanedit of the month October 2012 and Fanedit of the Year 2012 (or 2013 if you talked about the year the price is given!)

Thanks a lot!!!

Cops Consecution is released!

Cops Consecution

This is the seventh Consecution project DVD. It contains 9 short Fan Edits focusing on cops stories.

The faneditors are:
Adabisi - DominicCobb - g1orkatsos- Leeroy- matrixgrindhouse - Neglify (2 short edits) - That One Guy - The Man Behind The Mask

 The rules:
1. Create a short fanedit that runs 16 minutes max.
2. There has to be a plot.
3. This time there was a clear deadline to give back the edits.
4. Has to feature cops, obviously.

I've done a 13 minutes short edit called Fatal Weapon for this project. A little sad story using Lethal Weapon as a source.
