The Phantom Edit
from the ah...-digital-film-making dept
A very interesting article about someone (apparently, this is all well known within the Star Wars fanatic world – a world I am obviously not a part of) who took the latest (but first) Star Wars movie, The Phantom Menace, and re-edited it by cutting out certain parts to make it better. Most people seem to agree that it is much better. However, the simple act of a fan re-editing a movie brings up a lot of questions. Since the original Phantom Edit, many others have tried to re-edit the Phanton Menace, and the writer of the article wonders if this is going to be a new trend of fans doing post-movie edits.
