We 90to5’d Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. It might be somewhat special as it’s a 153 minute German silent movie, but you get the picture. Comments are more than welcome (do you think the “trading lifes” story should be explained? Is it important to show Freder chasing for Marie in Rotwangs house? What can be edited out instead?).
Looking forward to better versions of 5-Mintropolis.
Hello world! This is the 90to5 Editing Challenge blog. We are very exited to have you here and hope you will join the fun: to enter the competition, just edit a full feature public domain movie down to 5 minutes.
It’s all about extracting the essence of a movie, boiling it down to the core but still making it a smooth viewing experience. It’s a challenge, but we know you can do it.
In the next couple of days we will post an example edit as well as other materials to help you get started.
This is an audience award! A couple of days after the deadline, we will put all entries online, for your viewing pleasure as well as for voting and commenting. Have fun editing, voting and winning!
