I'm sure that editing a movie is like writing software, it's hard to tell when you're done. More so for documentaries where you have considerably more footage shot that you will use.
Having seen both the original edit and the new one, I definitely prefer the re-edit of the movie.
Several parts of the original have been left on the cutting room floor, and the main thematic story of Sam Houston High School and Rebecca Bass is better woven through the movie.
Some of the car back story that was not explicitly related to artcars has been rightful removed. Also gone is a sub story about Mark Bradford. There are still some small bits with him, but I agree that the substory was distracting. It's removal has left the story more succinct. Though I think it would make a nice shorter story on it's own.
The most significant change is the main story line. Most of the original footage is still used, but the film makers don't linger on it too long at any point. They more consistently pop us between that and all the fun side trips. It keeps the viewer more engaged.

Come out and enjoy the summer time viewing on the lawn at Discovery Green, certainly a great way to see this movie.
Art Car: The Movie will be shown at Discovery Green Park in Houston on Saturday, June 30 at 9pm. The movie will be preceded by a musical performance from The Footnotes.
