Wow, what the hell was that. In a strange paradox I bet it’s near impossible to understand this short if you haven’t seen Back to the Future, while if you have it’s hard to set aside your preconceived notions of how the plot should play out. All I know for sure about this edit is that I loved it. Amazing, amazing work. Brilliant design and execution. It’s a sign that something’s great when, come the end, I’m asking for more. What more can I say? Great short.
This edit was mind blowing. There was just soo much work done here. I really liked it. The intro work was phenomenal, the B&W flash backs were great. The integration of the clock ticking was amazing.
I think the part that stands out to me most was the audio work done when confronting Biff in the 'third run', that was genius.
IMHO, this sort of editing sets the bar.
In fact, because of what I've seen here, I'm now going to seek out Blue Yoda edits.
Just watched the extras bit. It was nice to see, but when I watched that line in the edit the first time, I immediately knew where the line had come from and what had been done. (sort of a fan of BTTF).
I had also thought some slight frame rate alterations may have been done to make the audio line up with the video precisely - which further backed that this was genius. Good stuff man!
Another MASTERPIECE of fanediting by Blueyoda.
Every shot and piece of music is so exactly where it should be from A to Z that it's becoming embarrassing to continue to make fanedits after you watch something like that.
Some could find technical flaws, but knowing Blueyoda it's either that he could not do otherwise to achieve an effect he wanted or because it's deliberate (and yes I'm a proud apologetic fan!)
Watch it NOW.
This is an awesomely stylized short. Refashioning Back to the Future without Doc Brown and all that shouldn’t work, but it does! Expertly paced, sharply edited, nifty visual effects. Strong usage of both the first and second films, as well as some extra odds and ends. It flows seamlessly. Perfect use of music. Artistically, it’s masterful. Technically, it’s kind of rough. Issues with frame rate, compression, aliasing, flickering… but it doesn’t matter. I loved every minute of it.
I may be biased, but this is the absolute stand-out for me. Blueyoda had mentioned this idea a while ago and I honestly never thought he'd pull it off. But by golly... This may not be the most popular yoda-blue assembly, but it's a must-see.
