Planet of the Apes 40th Anniversary
Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the original Charlton Heston vehicle, Planet of the Apes; it having first premiered on February 8th, 1968. I would have written a lengthy adoration, but couldn’t find the time. And having also not been able to find the time to finish this fan-film of sorts, I leave you with the unfinished cut of ‘PLANET’.
That is, Planet of the Apes, sans ‘of the Apes’.
Consider it a rough cut, if anything; it’s very basic and has none of the remixed soundtrack I was planning but the gist is there. It’s based on an idea of a couple of friends of mine, and so intrigued me that I eventually started doing this cut to get the idea out of my mind.
