Synopsis:
This edit combines several sources of media depicting the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2011 into a two and a half hour presentation.
Intention:
This edit begins on a calm Tuesday morning in New York City. The date? September 11, 2001. This edit portrays the hijacks of Flight 11, 175, 93 and 77; planes hitting the north and south towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and crashing in the Pennsylvania field. The immediate reaction by law enforcement and first responders is and confusion and chaos. The FAA orders the grounding of all air traffic while the towers collapse. It was sheer chaos on the streets of New York, and this edit aims to capture this tone and atmosphere. The edit ends with the the immediate aftermath of the attacks, enactment of the PATRIOT Act, invasion of the Afghanistan, and campaigns to trick the American people and international community to approve of the invasion of Iraq. I incorporate Movies, TV Shows, documentaries, news reports, amateur camcorder footage, interviews, and dramatic enactments. This edit culminates with the invasion of Iraq, with a 'LETS GET THE TERRORISTS!' vibe.

I wanted to tell the entire story start to finish, however there is SO MUCH 9/11 media, and the timeline starts as early as the 1990s and arguably continues to this day. I quickly realized this would be too much for one single edit, so I broke it up into three separate edits. This edit is the middle chapter, and I will follow up with separate edits detailing the events leading up to 9/11, and America's 'War on Terror' and the invasion of Iraq.
Additional Notes:
I was Inspired by Bobson Dugnutt's excellent Star Wars behind the scenes edits, where he combined several sources of behind the scenes material into one cohesive film. Thanks Bobson!
Other Sources:
Vice OST
United 93 OST
The Big Short OST
Prisoners OST
Several interviews/news clips

Editing Details:
This edit is presented with some scenes letterboxed and some in full screen. Why? Well, I was unhappy with zooming in on the letterboxed footage to make it fit a standard 16:9 ratio. However, I was unwilling to place black bars on the 16:9 footage to letterbox it. Therefore, all footage is presented in its original aspect ratio.
Cuts and Additions:
My source material ranged from dramatic enactments to more factual documentary type pieces. I took the main parts from each that focused on 9/11 and arranged everything into one massive timeline. This 'assembly cut' was around 4 hours. From there, I deleted scenes that were duplicated elsewhere, and sometimes combined two or more scenes into one. I wanted to keep the past moving quickly, to help convey the chaos during the day. To help with this, I did not add a time tickers as you might expect. I felt this would help orient viewers, which I wanted to avoid. I also removed any type of clock or time present in the source material. The result is a very past paced, disorienting experience. I feel this is appropriate given the subject matter.

I admire the unconventional approach taken in this edit. It's rare to find projects on this site that blend multiple sources into a documentary/narrative hybrid. I agree with wraith that I'd like to see more. While the transitions between sources are noticeable, they don't disrupt the viewing experience. Instead, they provide a 'fly on the wall' sensation, offering a raw glimpse into the events. The project not only presents a clear depiction of that day but also serves as a time capsule, encapsulating the eras from which the sources are drawn. I was particularly thoughtful after seeing the differences in tone and general feeling of World Trade center (2003) and VICE (2018).

I've long sought a blend of factual representation and dramatization of 9/11, but most attempts in traditional media often feel overdone, especially reenactments seen on places like the History Channel. This edit, however, is executed with taste and respect, which I deeply admire.

For anyone interested in history or seeking to educate themselves on the lesser-known details of 9/11, I highly recommend this edit. I found it engaging and informative, and I'm surprised it wasn't recognized in some of the FEOTY categories. I eagerly anticipate greenturnedblue's next project.

As a person who has known someone whom died on 9/11 this edit has struck me dearly. 9/11 Consecution is a very well put together edit that not only triggers the mind, but is very well informative in many ways of the events. Honestly I have no qualms with how this was done. As any edit, there are a few glitches here and there but not really anything to at all to complain about since it can be hard given the material. If this gets updated for any reason, I'll definitely be interested.

Remarkable!

To juggle the entire 9/11 timeline into a larrgely cohesive docu/drama is to be applauded.

There are not enough non-movie edits out there...and I for one would like to see more.

the fact that this is middle portion of a 3 part seies is exciting, despite the gravity of the material's subject matter.

Naturally, mainstream documataries focus on one subject...The lead up to...or Flight 93, or the Fire dept, NYPD etc. Blending all these and more with contemporaneous nes as well is a real feat.

The Video quality is as per the source material.
There are a few clunk audio transitions that could do with a clean up, but most are clean. By ist nature, many juxtaposed hard cuts will occur but ar par for the course.

The narrative is solid, clear and necessarily harrowing, to a degree that these days is censored by the mainstream...SO BE WARNED!

ENJOYMENT is NOT the word one would use to express the experience of watching this, however, it is informative, it WILL take you back, and it will leave you bith stunned and numb and yet wanting more.

A great achievement, but harrowing, as it sould be and was.

This is a very unique and emotional edit, for me at least. The source material is so charged in memory that it is difficult to manipulate it without being exploitative, but I think @greenturnedblue really pulled it off. It feels like a high quality documentary, and the cinematic scenes are intercut very well with real-life news and personal videos. At no point did I feel like I was being shown something designed to artificially play on my emotions, and I got emotional more than once. Perhaps this has to do with me being in high school when it happened, old enough to remember.

There were a few technical issues randomly spread throughout that pulled me out of the moment for a second, mostly on the audio side, which is understandable given the many different sources. There was also a 20 minute section toward the end that I felt was a little too drawn out and slowed down the narrative, especially after the constant emotional gutpunch of the first 75%.

Overall this is well worth your time, and shows @greenturnedblue's strong editing talents, to combine so many sources so well.
