I have finished editing the scene 7, “Purge”!

I finally finished editing the “Purge” scene.

Here are five highlights of this scene.

1. The complete transformation of the Police Spinner from running form to flying form!

The transformation scene of the Police Spinner from running form to flying form, which was not fully filmed in the original version, has been completely recreated.

4. Fixed the mistake of the spinner flying over the same spot twice.

In the scene where Police Spinner is circling and descending into the LAPD building, the footage of the buildings that is shown through Spinner’s front window in the original version is a reuse of the footage Deckard is looking at when Spinner takes off. This would mean that the spinner would land where it took off.

In WDC5, the image of the buildings through the spinner’s front window was replaced with the original one, and the inconsistency of landing at the take-off point was fixed.

5. City Speak of Gaff

You can hear to Gaff talking about City Speak, which you could never heard except the version “Workprint”.

Probably no one would notice…

Now, in addition to the five highlights above, I have inserted some rejected cuts. In particular, the rejected cut where Gaff looks at Deckard with disdain is worthy of note. Also, some of the cuts are longer than the final cut.

Gaff looks at Deckard with a look of disdain.

In addition, there are a cut where CG was used to make minor corrections that no one probably noticed. I dare not tell you which scene it is. Please look for it.
