This version of David Lynch's Dune (1984) integrates footage from the original Theatrical Cut, the Extended TV Cut, and deleted scenes to make the most complete version of the film as of 2012. I have done this as a labor of love to give fans of this under-appreciated gem an alternative version to the two flawed cuts currently available on the DVD. I only acted as a fan editor and did not originate the content of this movie. MCA Universal and its associated parent companies own all rights to this material. They have released a beautiful Blu-Ray and DVD of David Lynch's classic movie, which I highly recommend you buy to demonstrate to the studio that there is market for this movie to be fully restored one day, ideally with a new master cut of the film to restore as much of the story as possible with the utmost attention to detail that I could never hope to match in this good-spirited fan effort. Viewers will notice the footage from David Lynch's Theatrical Cut is expertly edited, color corrected, and sound designed better than the far poorer extended TV Cut, which was originally created without the director's authorization or oversight when the movie was prepared to air as a reconstructed mini-series for television in the late 1980's. For this reason, the elements culled from the extended TV cut are inferior, more poorly edited, not color corrected well, and are lacking certain basic special effects (such as the Fremen's lack of blue eyes). The sound design was also of poorer quality in the TV cut, which was was particularly egregious since this film's original sound editing and design were nominated for the Oscar. If I had the resources, time, and equipment necessary to correct these issues in a thorough re-edit of the original material, then I would gladly do so. And I would offer my services to MCA Universal free of charge to help see the project come to fruition. As is, I only had the material available on the DVDs to work with, and used the most basic of editing software suites available. For this reason, this particular cut of the film is unavoidably choppy and rough at times. But I meticulously reconstructed Dune with nearly all the available footage of the film, with an entirely new structure differing from both the Theatrical and Extended TV Cuts to better preserve story continuity and improve the dramatic flow. David Lynch's efforts in bringing this film to life have been often criticized in the past, and I believe is his most unfairly maligned film. My only intention in creating this cut of Dune (1984) is to show a sliver more of his amazing directorial efforts and show more of what the film could have been were it given more time to run than the too short Theatrical Cut and if it had been edited with just a bit more care when it was released as a mini-series. Thank you. 03/17/2015 Update: I uploaded an improved version of this fan edit to correct a few mistakes in the original version. I improved overall video and sound quality, including better syncing between audio and visuals in several scenes. I smoothed out a few rough transitions as much as I could, particularly by removing a few audio glitches. I removed a shot of Thufir still alive in the finale since it conflicts with the continuity of his restored death scene. And finally, the end credits no longer abruptly cut out but play through fully to the end.+ More details

Genre: Vampire Found Footage Film Plans take a turn when two amateur filmmakers are attacked at the Copy Cat Building in Baltimore. The footage that originally served as part of a documentary about the resident artists and musicians becomes topic of a great debate within the community. The filmmakers risk their lives to document events that have been kept secret for hundreds of years in order to spread the word of THE LIFT. OUR BLOODY UNDERGROUND Brady Starr shoots inside Baltimore’s loft life in The Lift From citypaper.com by Martin L. Johnson: The connection between Waters’ tableaux vivants of Baltimore’s underground made in the 1970s and early ’80s and Starr’s The Lift aren’t obvious at first. But both suburbanites share an interest in shining a light on people and places at the margins of the city. Starr, who moved to Baltimore a few years ago to start work on The Lift, has made a movie that is as much about his interpretation of city life as it is an urban version of The Blair Witch Project. Instead of the Maryland woods, Starr said he was drawn to filming Baltimore’s loft-performance spaces. “We just wanted to film the Copy Cat,” Starr says. “It’s very hard to describe. There are apartments, there are bedrooms within apartments, but most of [the] apartments are locked. A lot of people live on couches, in little cubby spaces. It’s a very common area. They all cook for each other, they all share food. It’s really like its own community.” Much of the movie is, in fact, a rather simple documentary of the Copy Cat; parts of it could have been shot by a MICA sophomore setting foot off campus for the first time to learn about artists’ lofts. The affable Dylan Lee Brady serves as the host for the first 45 minutes, asking a series of innocuous questions–”How old are you? How long have you lived here? What do you use the space for? How many roommates do you have?”–and getting stranger and stranger answers. Starr says that the documentary approach, and the discomfort many Copy Cat residents felt in the presence of a camera, made the movie more eerie than even he was aware during the shooting. “It worked to our benefit that people were nervous,” he says. “We knew how the movie was going to end, and everything people said was so creepy and weird that we said, ‘Wow, this has to be in the movie even though it has nothing to do with The Lift.” While the movie tiptoes around its vampire theme until the end, from the beginning it’s clear, as in almost all horror flicks, that something is off. While in other circumstances it may be easy to write off someone not knowing how many roommates they have when they live in a space so fluid, when you imagine vampires in this setting the same answers take on a more ominous tone. “What do you think you’ll accomplish with that?” one guy with glasses and a black skull cap asks Brady in between smokes. “People come and go around this place. I mind my business, do my thing.” People doing their thing takes up much of the movie, which is as much social document as vampire movie. As Starr makes clear, “the lift,” is not slang for a human blood high, but instead code for an unveiling of a new subculture of vampires. As was done for The Blair Witch Project and the more recent Paranormal Activity, Starr has invested considerable effort into blurring the lines between fiction and nonfiction in the movie’s publicity, so much so that he worries that some people will miss the movie’s backdrop altogether. “Some people are going to watch the movie and never know it’s a vampire movie,” he says. “They’re just going to go, What the fuck was that all about? The other people who understand the underground nature of the vampire, and what their exposed life would be like, they’re going to get it. I hope.”+ More details
