    Rewriting history, Dynasty '69 is an alternate universe which imagines what could have transpired between some of the characters in 1969.

    This is the second installment of the Dynasty '69 trailer trilogy. It picks up right where we left off at the end of trailer 1. Blake tracks down Alexis to the south of France where his old flame, played by Elizabeth Taylor, awaits him. Meanwhile back in California things begin to get complicated for Jason.

    This trailer packs a lot more in than the first one, there's nearly twice as many scenes, so it was quite a bit of work. But also very enjoyable piecing it all together. There was also plenty of technical difficulties to overcome, mostly to do with sound. Most of which I managed to sort but still some of the voices aren't great in a couple of places. Mostly the Barbara Stanwyck scenes. Anyway, there's lots going on and lots more to come in the final trailer, much of which is already done. I might take a little break first though before finishing that.

    Enjoy!

    Oh what a treat, just before I go to bed! I hope it continues in my dreams:dance:
    It's so good to see the Joan/Liz "feud" being used for Dynasty. And Frankie is back too, looking dangerously dazzling. What a bunch!

    Johnny F. certainly looked a lot younger then (not to leave out, being younger)!

    Of course. As the only star who is possibly bigger, more talented and more famous than Elizabeth Taylor I couldn't possibly refuse. What role would she be best suited for?

    I'm not 100% sure what that means but, I agree!

    Yes, I must say she looks gorgeous with that haircut. However I'm a bit pissed that as it worked out she managed to get more screen time than Sable. The bitch wants it all. Anyway, that's something that will be remedied in trailer 3.

    Excellent trailer, this just makes me want to watch a prequel Dynasty series focusing on the Blake & Alexis years even more. Of course it would never be the same with other actors. I love that you've cut pieces of the originals together in a way that really works! :hat:

    So which movies did you get the clips from?

    No need to list the Elizabeth Taylor ones since I know exactly which movies her clips are from! :byebye:

    I wonder if Dominique will make an appearance in the next installment, or perhaps Minx Morell?

    Anyway, @Richard Channing is just so very, very good at this -- these trailers are totally convincing!

    Thanks Karin!

    I won't go through all the actors but here's the ones for Blake and Alexis.


    Joan

    Quest for Love

    Fear in the Night

    The Executioner (In the 'I wanted so much to love you again' scene it's actually George Peppard that's standing in for John Forsythe!)

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Photo in first scene)

    Mission Impossible (Trailer 1)



    John

    Topaz

    The Happy Ending

    Madame X

    The Letters (voice only)

    Run For Your Life (voice only)


    Interestingly one of the actors there is an abundance of clips for is Kate O'Mara. She was doing so much TV at the time. However she almost always plays a foreigner (by that I mean someone not English) which is why she hasn't had any lines in either of the trailers as she's always speaking with an accent. I have clips of her where she's French, Russian and Spanish (twice). Although her Russian and Spanish accents are very similar lol. Anyway, she does have some dialogue in the next trailer.

    My lips are sealed. But what I will say is that, being the last hurrah, trailer 3 will be the most star-studded of the 3.

    Awww thank you. I'm learning as I go, and a few little tricks I've picked up along the way (such as adjusting, light, colour, contrast etc) help make things mesh together better and make the interactions more believable. But it's really about finding the right clips. And music, which I'm very particular about, which meant listening to a hell of a lot of soundtracks to find what I was looking for.

    Exceptional work Richard. If there is one series which screams prequel it's Dynasty. Why the head honchos decided to go with that nonsense on the CW is questionable. It would be great to see the characters in that era of the 50's, early 60's.

    You're welcome Richard and thanks for listing the Joan and John movies. :)

    Funny how Kate O'Mara kept doing different accents.

    Oh I agree I wish they'd done a prequel to Dynasty. It would have been so much better than the reboot. Especially if they had had Joan do a narrator for the beginning of each episode sort of like they always began "Desperate Housewives" with a narrator. Or something. I wish Joan could have been involved. Maybe it could have begun in the beginning and then gone back in time. Heck maybe it still could if they did a prequel movie. But I guess the new reboot ruined those ideas.

    Watching both trailers back to back is so much fun. I'm so excited that we are getting another one too! The amount of work put in to these is amazing. You really are very, very talented @Richard Channing! Thank you!

    Who's that handsome man behind her, the one who's covering his mouth with his fingers?​

    Much like TNT Dallas this latest reincarnation of Dynasty will just hurt the brand name to the point no one else will wish to touch it. A real pity. I still hold this belief Dallas (in the right hands) could still succeed as a continuation because of its grittiness. Dynasty could succeed if told as a prequel because it just lends itself to that era. It's more high society. More of an indoor type drama whereas Dallas belongs outside, on the ranch.
