The internet is just full of wonderful things. Most of those wonderful things are fueled by a fan’s passion for a particular subject. Be it Rubik’s Cubes to movies, the internet is not lacking for passion on just about any subject. A great, but kind of controversial thing on the web is hobby of Fan Editing. That is where a private citizen re-edits a film to make it more like they would want to see it. Some edits are minor aesthetic changes like color correction, while others seek to change the entire narrative of the film. All of the changes are controversial because they involve copyrighted material.
It is a fascinating subject no matter how you feel about it, just filled with people considering the “What Ifs” of cinema. If that sort of subject appeals to you, then drop by Fanedit.org and browse their many projects and learn more about these driven hobbyists.
