Brief Synopsis:
Tighten the editing film, and replace the Bill Conti score with classic John Barry music from other Bond films.
he 12th James Bond film is a favorite of mine. After the silly Moonraker, the film makers decided it was time to return to a more serious tone, with a traditional spy plot. The film mostly succeeds, but there a few missteps that have always bothered me. My goal is to make FYEO a more “classic” Bond film.

Additional Notes:
the editing of scenes was a big process, but the music replacement is by far the biggest undertaking. There a too many changes to list them ALL. the trims and changes number in the thousands. The music editing and placement is extensive. Hardcore fans are sure to recognize some music from other films, but a casual fan might assume the music was scored especially for this film. It just... sounds like James Bond music. :-) Its all timed to work perfectly with dramatic moments within the film. I'm quite proud of the work Ive done.
