1. Why?

There are many including myself who enjoy James Cameron's film - the sets, the design, the history, the attention to detail, the music, the special effects - but found the 'Romeo & Juliet' love story at times distracting, annoying and sometimes quite simply embarrassing. It also takes at least half the 3 hour running time. Many have asked why James Cameron had to create fictional characters in the first place. Some Titanic Facebook groups have banned any mention of "Jack and Rose" due to movie fatigue and frustration. I have often wondered if anyone had created an edit that removed the love story, leaving just the history. There are rumours of one existing on Youtube. I found nothing and so decided to do it myself as a "fanedit".


2. What is a fanedit?

A "fanedit" is a new version of a film in which an editor is typically attempting to clean-up or otherwise modify the original so as to make it a more enjoyable viewing experience. In some cases the new edit attempts to modify the story so drastically as to make it a new and unique movie experience.


3. Can I legally watch it?

In accordance with the rules of fanedit.org and the Fan edit database, "Faneditors and viewers of fanedits must own a copy of the source material at equal or greater resolution than the fanedit." So if you have purchased or legally own a Blu-ray version of James Cameron's Titanic film then you can legally watch this new edit. A link will either be on this page or contact me directly for a link.

4. How can I watch it?

The best way to watch the film is to download the mp4 file (it is about 5GB) either via the link on this page (above in the red box) or send me a message via the contact page. Play it back on your preferred playback device that offers the best quality. If you have a 5.1 or 7.1 surround system then make sure to play it on that as it has been mastered in 5.1. But if not, please download the stereo version.

5. Do Jack and Rose appear at all in this version?

I have not completely removed Jack and Rose from the film - they are now 'supporting cast' and appear at some moments during the film reacting to events (such as the iceberg collision). But their love story is now non-existent and the drama is focused on the sinking.

6. Do you see the wreck in this edit?

Yes you do see one or two shots of the wreck at the beginning and end of the film - as James Cameron created in the origial movie, to provide context and a transition device into the story. Otherwise it takes place entirely in April 1912 and all scenes with the modern day diamond recovery storyline have been removed.

7. Have you also corrected other historical inaccuracies in the film?

This is director James Cameron's dramatised portrayal of the sinking, and there will always be inaccuracies or clarifications as more information is recovered from the wreck site etc.  Even he has released documentaries showing where he got it wrong!

Some key inaccuracies:
- passengers being allowed on the prow of the ship
- central propellor shown with four instead of three blades
- the lighting of the funnels
- Molly Brown was not known as "Molly" until after the sinking
- Ismay's involvement with wanting to set a speed record
- Lightoller's accent
- the full astern order (did not happen)
- locked gates in third class
- shocked, confused and defeated portrayal of Captain Smith
- the angle of the split/ final plunge
- Captain Smith's last moments

But my intent is to remove the 100% fictional Jack and Rose story and leave the rest as a dramatisation of the disaster as made in 1997. Actually, all things considered, James Cameron did an amazing job of recreating the ship and her story - considering the number of financial and logistical constraints he was under, his attention to detail is astounding.

8. What is the purpose of the new colour grade?

For some reason there is a blanket green tint that is present on the Blu-ray version of the film that I have removed by using a LUT supplied by a Fanedit user named "hbenthow". He wrote to me: "I based the LUTs on photo samples of two different "Titanic" regrades by a prolific fan-regrader known as KingKong650 (or KK650 for short). As a result, the amount of work that I had to put in to create the LUTs was minimal. If anyone deserves credit, it's KK650."

To compare the original blu-ray grade (left) and the new LUT grade (right), use the slider below on the following images:

9. It doesn't work as a film

It has to be understood that this "fanedit" is essentially like taking the characters of Romeo and Juliet out of the "Romeo and Juliet" story and wondering why the story doesn't flow. By taking out Jack and Rose the entire backbone of the film has been removed, leaving just context and surrounding scenes. Hence it is not going to be as structured or as connected as a three-act structure led by main characters facing and overcoming a problem. Without access to the original footage, alternate takes or being able to reshoot parts of the film, I can only use what is available on the commercially released disc and so there will always be limitations with what can be done with such an ambitious concept of removing the main characters completely from an epic film.

Simply put, the compromise of being able to watch the film without the Jack and Rose characters is that it lacks the coherence of a normal film. But I am hoping that those who find their Titanic exeperience ruined by the fictional storyline can at least enjoy it whilst also understanding that it is of course not the director's original intent.

10. I am having technical/audio issues

Some have reported "audio issues" which is most likely due to playing the 5.1 surround sound version of the film on a stereo system or with software that is not interpreting the 5.1 into stereo correctly. In which case please download the stereo (a "mixdown") version of the film in the second link above. Any further issues please contact me.
