Brief Synopsis:
Tony Benedict receives a tip from the Night Fox fueling his revenge on Danny Ocean and his team.
Intention:
Ocean's 12 feels a bit off when compared to the magic that is the first and the good film that is the third installment. Much of this is due to extended scenes with awkward dialoguue that doens't add to the flow and a very non-linear approach to the narrative flow of the film. The main intention of this edit is to make Ocean's 12 feel more like Ocean's 11 & 13 by removing some of the scenes that go on too long, rearranging the out of sequence shots, removing the visual back story of Rusty and Isabel, removing Bruce Willis as a character and just tightening up the overall feel of the movie.

Editing Details:
At first this edit was pretty straightforward, two video channels (one for the logos at the beginning and the other for the main video track) and a straight 5.1 surround channel mix. Then as always some ideas were floated that I just couldn't resist trying out (looking at you MusicEd921) that required some pretty extensive audio work. Sources of the soundtrack are extended into and out of scenes to make the transitions smoother and give it that Ocean's feel.
