[versions] Blade Runner (1982) White Dragon Cut
#1
Photo 
As many of you probably know there is a fan version of BR but with added scenes and new artwork.

It is not just BR game scenes and photos added, it is really well done.

Some scenes are posted on YT. You can check out Blade Runner White Dragon Cut 5 | Chapter 13 "Leon Hiding on the Ceiling"

The project has been in the making for 12 years by kazuchoice. Evidently a version 5 is scheduled for 2024.

But does anyone have version 4?

To my eye looks incredible and I do not want to wait one year.

Thx for any help

It's funny that you made this post now, as these days, I am also thinking about the White Dragon cut, and am also interested in seeing it.

I tried to send a message via Kazuchoice's website, but the function appears to be broken, so no joy. Did not feel compelled enough to reach him via YT or something like that...

To my understanding the V5 will be much more different than V4 with even more stuff added, so not sure that V4 at this point would represent what this very talented dude can produce. I would also like to at least have V4, but it will be in low DVD quality, so there is that...

I any case, I am keeping my eye on this man's amazing work (don't like that he opted to include the narration, but I can redo the audio mix, to leave it out, if I ever get blessed with copy of his work, then again I might like Ford's half-assed exposition after all... ).

In the meantime I am in the process of producing my own 4K extended version of BR 1982 (without the freaking yellow-green puke tint of FC), as nobody who did it before included everything in their version, or if they did it would have been a long time ago and in pretty rough quality...

Thanks for your comments. I did try to reach him at Youtube and other social media. Sent him several emails and posted replies where he himself posted. No luck.

Then I came across someone that knew of Cut 4 and got me a link to a website where a guy in Zagreb had tons of Blade Runner material. He sold me his last copy.

Yes it is DVD and Cut 5 is obviosly better. But it will be released in Nov 2024, or possibly later. And I am not sure how to get a copy then, if at all.

Therefore I took no chanches of missing out and opened my savings account and paid up.

Waiting time now until it gets here :-)

Agreed. @TomasVolley please report it.

I've seen some earlier version of this edit and I thought it was total garbage to be honest. The fan effects are terrible, and there's not a single thing about it that improved the movie. It's supplied as a DVD ISO and is not very good quality even for DVD.

You'd be correct when looking at his first versions. He was just getting started with learning how to edit video and special effects. But if you bother to check out the updates on his YouTube channel, you'll find that the quality of his work is astonishing. 

That being said, I think he would be much better off finishing the work he's completed on upscaling, restoring, color correcting, and re-inserting all the deleted scenes into his edit. What I've seen so far is absolutely incredible. This alone would allow him to complete his fan edit and release it in HD to the fans who've been waiting forever for him to release it.

What I'm not a fan of is the wholesale creation of brand new scenes that are completely digital animation with parts of characters dropped into them. While they are highly detailed and fit in with the style of the movie, there's really no reason to make up new scenes just to change or try to expand the story and the runtime. He could always release that as a special edition by itself.

Unfortunately, he doesn't answer email or messages on YouTube or his own website. He just keeps plunking away on Version 5, which, according to him, will be released in November of 2024. I'm not holding my breath on that, but we'll just have to wait and see.

I agree with you totally RedSun. He has increased his knowledge in fan editing exponentially. Version 5 will be awesome.

In addition, his view in adding new scenes is near the border of hybris and becoming director.

To change colour gamut, image quality and some deleted scenes and so forth is ok and rewarding for all of us.

But to extend the movie with scenes that have little story-telling is most often not needed. Less is more sometimes.

Awaiting Nov 2024 which is perhaps some hint to November 2019 in the movie but I do not think it will be released in November.

Perhaps the YT clips is just to market himself in the movie editing digital art industry?

Who knows if he will indeed release Version 5 towards the end of this year. He has, however, made numerous posts over the past half year showing the incredible work he's done on BR scenes and the stuff he's created wholly out of thin air. I'm not holding my breath, however. As for his TY clips being a way to market himself in the movie editing digital art industry, your guess is as good as mine.
