i really wanted to edit this one

the hollywood au: bob edition

i’m a little too busy today to really contribute to the AU day of BoB Week (boo D:) but here’s a very sketchy list of the Hollywood AU I’ve been bouncing around in my mind for awhile now. Thanks to @theonceandfuturecaptain for helping me develop it during one very memorable chat! <3

Dick Winters is an auteur director. His films are always aesthetically interesting and thematically complicated, and he’s known for working with the same small group of professionals on nearly all his projects. Stanhope Nixon is in the business of making award winning movies. Making money is important too, of course, but the major goal of all of Nixon Productions is a shot at the holy trinity of film awards: Sundance, Cannes, and the Academy Awards. In the two of them Lewis Nixon sees an opportunity - a fucking kickass adaptation of David Webster’s best-selling novel FAITHLESS, which follows the story of a rugged American captain and the British nurse who captures his heart amidst the Second World War and his struggles with faith and patriotism. When Dick reads the novel and contacts Webster about writing the first draft of the script, he’s already looking ahead to casting the only actors he knows will be able to handle the major roles: intensely private, intensely committed Ron Speirs, and equally as passionate Kitty Grogan, the best actress Britain has to offer. 

He rounds up the rest with his usual promise of adventure in the pursuit of creating good art: Harry Welsh, for example, his ever-faithful Assistant Director who also acts as Editor when post-production roles around, Carwood Lipton, a truly excellent cinematographer who works on the same wavelengths as Dick, Joe Toye and Bill Guarnere, the ones you call when you want your action scenes to carry the weight of realism. And what follows is a crazy intense film shoot, filled with pining and misunderstandings: Dick, who really wants Nix (on the verge of divorce and alcohol poisoning), and Nix, who of course wants him back despite being convinced Dick is liable to show up to work with a sweet girlfriend any day now, a crazy media blowout that ends with (fake) reports about Ron and Kitty’s secret romance - meanwhile, of course, she’s trading kisses with Harry, and Ron can’t keep his eyes off of Carwood. Good thing the feeling is mutual, Carwood (camera and all) has never been so drawn to someone, although it’s a long way to get to Ron’s Best Actor win and heartfelt speech where he thanks his boyfriend, Carwood Lipton, for all the support. 

Also featuring interns Babe and Gene, who really ought to stop making eyes at each other from opposite ends of the shoot. Webster and Liebgott, who plays a key supporting character in the film and keeps arguing with Web about his lines. George Luz, who keeps finding excuses to slip away from his lighting design work to go flirt with Toye (busy teaching Ron how to throw grenades realistically). Also featuring, of course, Renee as Ron’s long-suffering agent, Buck Compton as a fellow actor (People’s sexiest man alive - twice!), Christenson as art director, Skip, Muck, and Malarkey as sound designers/mixers/foley artists (gotta make those gunshots sound realistic), and lots of others I’m sure I’m forgetting at the moment. It takes a lot of people to make a major motion picture! Good thing Dick is a fantastic leader (isn’t that what a director does, after all?) - because of course, at the end of the day, their movie wins Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and a whole slew of other awards - Jury Award at Cannes, anyone? Stanhope Nixon is smug, but no matter how much money he put up, it’s Dick’s (and Nix’s) movie, and its success gives them the confidence to form Screaming Eagles Productions (they announce it at their wedding). 

24/7 cheering up!

To all my writer/editing master followers, or those who want to have a go at it!

I know life can be really shitty, and this community can be a great one to turn to when you feel terrible, to request a feel good oneshot from your favourite writer, but unfortunately, we can’t all be available all the time. 

INTRODUCING…

The page I still haven’t named! 

The intention of this page is to collect some HP stuff that can cheer us all up when we need it! I am currently working on getting my submission box open and working on my desktop theme as well as my mobile. You can submit edits, drabbles, oneshots, blurbs, encouraging quotes, jokes or generally anything that isn’t too long! Please remember to submit any details you’d like me to include, such as the blog that you want promoted (if you want your sideblog to be credited rather than your main). 

I really hope we can get this going because I hate seeing posts about how terrible my lovelies feel, and I’d like to do something to make it go away because none of you deserve this, tf?? 

Please do let me know if this is something you’d like to see, something you’d find useful or would like to participate in! 

Thank you lovelies, and I hope we can get this working!

So, 2 questions. 1: If other ppl made de-whitewashed edits of dami and Talia would you like to be tagged? 2: what color pallete would you recommend skin tone wise? (I don't want to end up acidentaly being more racist while trying to fix whitewashing)

Yes of course! matter of fact you can tag me in anything really and I will check it out.

When it come the colors I use, I usually try to use these three:

Sometimes it doesn’t work out so I use others but usually I use this as the reference or guidelines.

Also its worth mentioning that there’s more to whitewashing than just the skin color so that’s why I sometimes try to change other things beside the skin like for example I try to change the eyebrows and the eyelashes by making them thicker and if you notice with my edits their eyes has slightly more wider and almond-shape to them so that they will have dat Arabian eyes look (its very hard to notice because like I said I’m not an artist) and I even try change their clothes to make them similar to traditional clothes now all of that is fine and all but you need to be careful with it and not go overboard so you wouldn’t accidentally make them look like a walking stereotype, my advice for you is just to talk to people and ask them for their opinion before you posts your un-whitewashed pictures and you will be just fine :)

I for one really liked your edit, it was designed nicely and was a unique point of view. it was shown both boys did a lot of dehumanizing to their victims during the shooting and I think that edit portrayed it nicely.

Thank you, that was kind of the point of it. I wasn’t saying the victims were a worthless piece of crap, of course they were not?? It was supposed to show how the killers might have seen them. I don’t get why people freaked out so much and want to report me over this. That’s just.. uuuhh
