BERSERK: RECUT (ベルセルク:再切断)

Love both part VII & VIII Griff. You did a great job editing the end of part VIII.

Griffith said:
Why aren't you complaining about the lack of Part VIII!? :judo:
I'm complaining about the lack of part XXIV. :femto: If there is going to be a part XXIV? I am not sure if you intend on making the same amount of parts as there are episodes.
 
I finally got back, and first thing I did was watch this.
I couldn't even tell that you cut anything at the end. Till slan69 mentioned that you edited it. I had to go and watch the original anime episode just to see what you cut. Very good job. :guts:

The only scene I noticed that you cut was the Princess looking at Griffith as he's falling back and seeing that bolt sticking out of his armor. I actually kind of like that shot, though not the one of him falling sideways. I guess it's the one I distinctly remember from the anime.

Thanks, I just wish there had been a more natural stopping point, alas...

No plan, it just depends on how long and divisible by 15 minutes it ends up being.

Now that's a compliment! :serpico:

Yeah, this one required surprisingly a lot of cutting, and not the kind anyone should notice. There were times where I was really unhappy with it's condition, but as I kept plugging away it started to smooth out and come together nicely. I think it helped that there wasn't a lot of music to wrestle with in this part.

Ah, now this raises a good point, because I actually like that shot as well, but it's not represented in the manga, where Griffith's shooting is more straightforward (not a bunch of different angles, closeups, or any slow motion obviously). So, that's how I cut it, with the shots that matched best. Situations liked this helped develop my policy on these things, which is that however cool or dynamic a shot is, the point is to be as faithful to the manga as possible, not to have the coolest shots. So if it's not the most faithful shot available, it's got to go, sadly. I'll even tell myself when I'm tempted to keep one, "There's cooler shots in other animes that are even less representative of Berserk, and you're not using those either." Then I don't worry about anymore. =)

A great edit that jumped out on me was the leaf tooting scene. It just worked so well. I always thought it was a silly scene and it just got a lot funnier.

Charlotte: Why are men big stupid violent dummies?

Without hesitation, Griffith snaps off a leaf... FWEEEEEEEE

Yep, by the time Charlotte finishes her difficult question in the manga Griffith has practically already snapped the branch. :griffnotevil: :ganishka:

Hmmm, for the sake of promotion: SEE GRIFFITH'S RESPONSE IN THIS PART ONLY!!!! OH YEEAAAH, LIFE IS BUT A DREAM!!!!!!!!
 
Great work! These scenes during the night look pretty incredible, even the colors and stuff. My favorite parts of the anime are all in part IX of your edit.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming, and finally, what you've all been waiting for...

"MUHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!"

HOT ADON ACTION! At least that's what you want according to the producers of the anime, where he practically already had like two episodes devoted to him by this point. Why? Simple: because Adon = Awesome!

For those that have accessed this thread through my sig or something and maybe don't know, Nomad has composed a beautiful original Berserk-inspired composition and allowed me to use it in RECUT! I'm very happy with the results:

If you haven't heard Nomad's "Hill of Swords" score yet, do yourself a favor and take a listen to it in the Hill of Swords Audio Score thread and show him some appreciation.

Well, that's bittersweet, I hope you'll find something else to like during the remainder. :ganishka:

Thanks as always, slan.

Sorry for the slight delay, something had a mass effect on my sleeping schedule. Thankfully this was the easiest part so far, it's a Skullmas miracle! So, without further ado, the BERSERK: RECUT Holiday Special. Or, just the next part:

The video, thread and my sig were updated on schedule, just didn't bump the thread:

Next time: 100 Man Battle! :guts:
 
As always I enjoyed watching both parts. I was actually going to re-watch the series, but when I read this thread I thought to myself, I might as well watch Griff's instead. (I knew it would be better.) :slan: I actually thought it was funny the way part XII ended. Adon was clearly about to say something really important. :serpico:

I personally enjoyed this one the most. Perhaps it's been a while since I've seen this series, but the fluency in this particular episode shines.

Looking good, Griff! It's been a while since I've seen this part of the anime, but the transitions looked pretty flawless to me. :guts:

Thank you very much, I'm quite enjoying dissecting the anime rather than just watching it. It's also kind of a different experience following along the anime with the manga in hand, which is something I recommend for viewing RECUT, particularly if one can't understand Japanese and isn't familiar with everything being said.

Thanks guys, if you can say that about this one I'll be proud. The previous two put together weren't half as demanding, and this part contains some of the most acrobatic but hopefully seamless editing in my limited experience. So, here's hoping you don't notice! :carcus:

I was a little behind but I'm all caught up now!

The only thing that really jumps out at me (and don't ask me why) is that in Part X when Griffith finishes his speech about friendship and gives his maniacal grin at the deaths of royalty, in the manga there' a bit devoted to Guts turning away and Casca starting to realize what Guts had done. And I guess my point is, wasn't that also in the anime? And if so, why was that cut out?

I wish I knew since it's actually not in the anime. Another perplexing decision by the producers; why get rid of the scene's final payoff from Guts' and Casca's end? There's simply no good reason.

I've been watching your little project, Griffith. It's good for such a fragmented source. Though, I still think it's like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle that has more than half of its pieces missing.

Are you going to make it public to the rest of Youtube once you finish? Or just to people who find it this way?

I originally wanted to make these a single double-sized half hour epic featuring the battle of Doldrey in its entirety, but alas, life got in the way. Still, here's parts 15 and 16 together featuring the Hawks' entire attack on Doldrey! Enjoy:

Good stuff. I think the "Murder" track that plays around 4:30 could be extended to the Adon vs Casca fight, instead of just cutting off. That's really the only critique I had.

Yeah, another abrupt musical stop, though without re-dubbing the sound, this was the best I could do. I tried an audio-video cross fade, but somehow that seemed to draw even more attention to it; like fresh Febreze in a bathroom, you can smell the cover up. I'm actually pretty happy with the results overall, Adon breaks the... not silence, and at least you hopefully didn't notice that the Zodd clip also didn't originally follow the footage of Guts and Boscone now seen beforehand. I had to find a way to plop Zodd and his little segment of Murder right in the middle of them.
 
Part 16's epic ... I was like "Nooooooooooooo, he didn't just do that!" (referring to the way Part 15 ended, right before the Guts battle that I was waiting for) and now I'm a happy puppy ^_^. Good stuff Griffith!
