Reloaded_Remixed – The Matrix Reloaded Fan Edit

By Paul Martin January 8th, 2012, in Matrix Fans, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions

A Matrix Fan wrote to me a few days ago via Twitter, about his Matrix Reloaded fan edit.  Here’s what he wrote:

For the past year I’ve been working on a “fan edit” The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions. I initially called the project “The Matrix Remixed”. I recently finished a cut of the Reloaded “fan edit” which I call RELOADED_REMIXED.

I am not the first one to make a fan edit of Reloaded and Revolutions. Though what distinguishes mine apart from others (this is what I assume from reviews and summaries I have not seen any other fan edits) is that mine are made out of admiration for the original films. I have sent cuts of RELOADED_REMIXED on DVDs to Joel Silver and Andy Wachowski, suggesting that they could extend the life of the franchise. The same way a music artist would release an album of songs remixed by other artists, filmmakers could release cuts of their films reinterpreted by other filmmakers. It would not be the first time. Just look at films like Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, Blade Runner, Touch of Evil, Mr. Arkadin a.k.a. Confidential Report (which is a film WITHOUT a definitive final cut).

Thank you.

      Sorry. That portion of the message was meant for the editor of the site. But if you are on Vimeo you can ad me a contact. Just search “Ray the Squirrel” and I might show up. But since fan edits exist in a legal grey area you need to prove you have a copy of the original movie.
