Blimey-long list if you wnt every single cut-

um, important cuts-

intro- its pretty much gone, no Frodo. NO Erebor no Dale. Opens the same you get Bilbo sitting at his desk, says the bit about dear Frodo I not have told you whole story blah blah- but then I spliced that with the him writting the opening line- in a hole in the ground- only I cut where Pj wanders off the text to ramble on- came back in on the last word 'comfort'- and I masked it with a panning up shot of Bag End over the 'ina hole in the ground' bit.
From there right into the good morning conversation- then the party- burping is gone- as is the big fight- seems PJ cant resolve these sort of scenes at all- so he just has everyone get angry and stand up and shout for a bit- same as the Council of Elrond in fact-so none of that- then off they go- the bet bit is gone, the flahback to moria fight is still there but Thorin kills Azog in it now, troll scene has most of the fighting removed, it goes on in the background whilst Bilbo tries to free the ponies but thats about it, parasite bit of the converation is gone, no Radagst at all, no Azog- straight onto Rivendell- no WC- onto the stone giants- you see them, throw some rocks, they hide in a cave- nothing more.
Goblin town is big cuts- no huge fall through the floor, scenes with dwarves ends when Gadalf comes in and blows away everything in a white light. Next time you see them is when Bilbo hjas ring on and they are hurrying by.

No BIlbo attacks by Goblin. No Smeagol/goblin scene and losing the ring. Bilbo gets up and just finds the Ring. Riddles scene there are a few line trims and cuts where the dialogue wa sinappropriate, slighly less duality.
Then its escape, back with the dwarves- warg atack, minus Azog, no Thorin stupid fight/ass whoping, no Bilbo killing anything in this film either- lot less faffing about in trees, no domino effect of them fallling over.
Thats the major stuff. I think.

It's still a diamond in the rough. The footage Petty had to work with appears to have been taken with a handheld camera in a Spanish theater. The picture is a bit dark and blurry, but recognizable. The audio is muddy and includes some crowd noises, but still understandable. And as Petty mentioned, the sound synch is out. I didn't bother to correct it, just imagined I was watching a dub of a foreign film. For a first edit this worked fine, as petty is just blocking it all out for now in preparation for the DVD release. So I'd say if you want to be involved in sharing opinions that may shape the later edits, by all means download it and watch it now. It's pretty cool! cheers

On the other hand if you're wanting to see a better movie than PJ's theatrical edit, I'd recommend waiting until Petty has been through a few more drafts and has better images and soundtrack to work with.

Now as far as the actual edit, here's a first impression:

Thanks David- yes this one isnt really for entertainment so much for seeing what I have in mind when I have some proper footage to work with.
Glad you liked things over all- oddly enough I think it turned out 'purer' than any of the LotR's edits did, I think, overall.

you know Petty I would be very interested in seeing your edit of the Hobbit. But I will wait until you can get hold of a high quality edition with no spanish dubbing etc. It sounds pretty good, and all the stuff I dislike is gone. Then you have more time to get it perfect. Will you add the Erebor/Dale flashback in a later scene? its too good to be discarded completely imo, maybe it can be used sparingly later?

Its not dubbed- the sound just goes out of synch the further in yo get till is about a second out. But its in english.

The problem with Dale stuff is it has Bilbos voice over the top of it narrating-which precludes using it anywhere else.
Howver once I have got a proper eriosn to work with I might be able to seperateoff that sound track and so make use of it elsewhere.

Plus I am not sure stuff like Dale is not better left until they get there to see it- PJ in my view in LotR's to often showed the viewer stuff they shouldnt have seen until much later.

And you can always give book 1 a go instead- its only an hour long.

I agree, and I think that's to PJ's credit as well as yours. I think he gave you significantly more "pure" material to work with this time.
I hope he keeps it up!

Is it old Bilbo narrating the scene? I cant remember. Its a pity, I really like it, as it shows the DOS pretty well. I like seeing Dale before Smaug.

When I watched the Dale scene I couldn't help thinking it looked like your part of the world, Mrs Figg. I could imagine you having a view apartment upon the hill.

Although the Dwarf History prolog didn't make the cut in Petty's edit of Pt 1, I wouldn't be surprised to see parts of it come back in the next movie when the company actually gets to Dale. Petty likes a chronological narrative much like Tolkien's own. He's done a lot of this kind of reshuffling to very good effect in his LotR edits.

yes Dave its quite Northern Italian looking, very South Tyrolean, which is Italian although the people are German and speak German amongst themselves. I do like the design of Dale a lot. I would love to live in Dale if only I could find it. Very Happy this town is similar, its caled Grazzano Visconti.

I will tak another look at that bit David and see if its possible to stay with Bilbo until the Ring find before cutting the dwarves and GreatGoblin.

Of course come the EE's I should have more to work with- and as Pj tends to cutcharacter moments rather than action for theatrical releases thnigs might be better (or worse- depends if he cut Tolkien character stuff or just more farting and belching jokes)

I think when the EE comes out you will be able to do far more. There will probably be more Rivendell stuff so you can cut out the feasting, if you havent already done so. I cant wait to see it finished. I think there is a lot of good stuff among the sillyness. Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis do a good job. when does the EE come out I wonder.

I cut the lettuce joke I know that much- sadly once the WC stuff is gone there is only the swords bit and the moon runes left for Rivendell- and Bilbo isnt really the focus of any of it- I could actually have done with the scene in publicity shots of Bilbo wandering about- seeing Anduril.
Without more stuff in Rivendell thats just Bilbo falling in love with the place, it doesnt seem to make any impression on him at all.

I hope the EE has Bilbo finding Anduril, but wait, cant you use bits from a trailer or tv spot? the ones with Rivendell, but I suppose the quality is so very different from the version you have it would look odd.

My thoughts after watching your edit:

Spoiler:

I'm going to watch the Hobbit again tomorrow in 3D (it's more for the sake of being social than for enjoying the film). I'll keep your edit in the back of my head and comment if any clever thoughts come to mind Smile

Thanks Ringdrotten- Ive already got some ideas- like when I have a proper version I can take old Bilbos dialogue of the books opeinng 'in a hole inthe ground' line and put whatever visuals I like to it- so start on an exterior pan up on bag End thats already there- but put it first and then use the shot inside the hobbit hole, but reverse it so its going back into the corridor for the description bit of the line. If you can envision what I mean. drunken

That sounds great Very Happy Is there any hope for the prologue in any of your edits? I quite liked the visuals and the backstory, and Dale was nice too.

I had hoped to find somewhere in the party scene to put it, thinking there must be some place in the conversation it would be able to get to it- but I just couldnt find a place to put it- the only other option I considered was attaching it to the Battle of arseandbull (ok I can never rmemeber how to spell it!) but I thoughti tmade he cut away over long and no longer fitted with the scenes ending- which is them all standing looking at Thorin.
So in the end I left it out- as its not sticlly speaking necessary- it might be more appropriately used in a later film when these matters are sure to arise again in some fashion. So it might make an appearence yet.
