Your life: Deleted Scenes and Extras

There are services which take your home videos and tidy them up and make them look not so crap(*), however, this is a service which goes that extra step and applies clever CGI trickery to create 'deleted scenes', and 'extras', and, for a large additional fee, a 'Director's Cut' of your entire life.

(*)Actually, all home videos are crap and largely unwatchable. Also, I don't have a video camera.

Halfbakery: Death Credits Death Credits
Some discussion around this on [Benfrost]'s idea. [zen_tom, Nov 16 2009]

The Grammar Club - Alternate Ending http://www.songmean...530822107858719507/
A song with a similar motif. [derefr, Nov 17 2009]


       Are we talking about the scenes which you wish had happened, but never really did? This raises narcissism to new heights, but somehow [+].

       Whatever next ? "Your Life As A Ballet" ?

       Are we discussing fact or fiction?   

       Too scarey! Sounds like judgment day to me.
outloud, Nov 16 2009

       [+]I'd buy it for the alternate endings.
Jscotty, Nov 16 2009

       We'd like to see [Unabubba]'s, with Barry Humphries in the title role, and Paul Hogan as Young Bubba. Maybe Mel Gibson could play Bubba Senior in the flashbacks, complete with doubtful Scots accent ?   

       Do we get to see the light-sabre duel on the rim of the deep shaft ?

       A long time ago my brother brought home videos which were stupid Japanese films of people running around in colored suits as super heroes fighting monsters, but the audio track had been changed to include songs, jokes, etc. The films were dumb, it was the original Power Rangers before American release, but the audio track was hysterical.   

       If you want to re-edit my home movies, that is what I want done. Kill the audio track and hand it over to a good improve group for a new audio track. Maybe edit in me killing monsters, then I will bun.
MisterQED, Nov 16 2009

       maybe a good idea for some, but I would never want to change the scene where my little brother is ice skating and flies into a huge rock on the pond. (sniggers)

       I was rather hoping this was an inexpensive way of deleting a few regrettable scenes from my memory. Oh well! I'll have to stick with the alcohol for now.
DrBob, Nov 16 2009

       So.. like.. deleted scenes if you WERE drunk in the movie.. or deleting scenes as a result of getting drunk?
Jscotty, Nov 16 2009

       Just don't force me to watch the "making of".
jutta, Nov 17 2009

       That time you poured coffee over yourself in front of all your work colleagues - that needed twenty takes.
hippo, Nov 17 2009

       Ye must be born again! -CUT! (I just thought of that... laughs at own stupid joke like a fool)

       //Just don't force me to watch the "making of".// Gnnnnn.   

       But it does open the possibility of having sequels, prequels and tanguels (tangential film offshoots, of say, minor characters or events - like in "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are dead") using that old flickery cine film for the past, and in glorious 3D for the future.
zen_tom, Nov 17 2009

       not to mention the potential for alternate endings and more restrictive edits. I want the inflight movie edit of my life.
WcW, Nov 17 2009

       //But it does open the possibility of having sequels//   

       Only if heaven or hell exist, but eternity wouldn't fit onto a VHS or DVD.
shudderprose, Nov 18 2009

       //wouldn't fit onto a VHS or DVD// Are you saying you need to watch Heaven in Blu-Ray?
zen_tom, Nov 18 2009

       That would depend on the regional coding. By not mentioning Hell I assume you've also had to sit through Titanic and have realised that eternity in hell does in fact fit on a DVD.
