Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I was an avid consumer of the American Top 40 and Europe charts since short before PSB appeared. Loved listening to new tunes every week...and when West End girls came out I was very surprised on how different that record was to EVERYTHING I heard around. A friend of mine still rememeber the day whe...

Re: IT COULDN’T HAPPEN HERE BLU-RAY SCORE A SEMITONE LOWER

The weird thing is that, although the DVD plays at a faster speed than the Blu Ray disc, the songs are still pitched too low - try playing the original album version of ICHH alongside the soundtrack version at the start of the film...the pitch is lower (not as much as the Blu Ray, but it's still lo...

Re: IT COULDN’T HAPPEN HERE BLU-RAY SCORE A SEMITONE LOWER

I was wondering if this was how the original score was presented, with the songs maybe being pitched or slowed to better suit the cues and progression of the film’s edit? Or is it possibly an oversight or mistake? We don't know with 100% certainty but, on the face of it, the film was filmed and edi...

They were done by the same person, Jack Bond
Oh..of course it was "directed" by Jack Bond, because all the stuff included was taken from his movie, all those shots were directed by him..but are you sure he was the editor of the music-video too?? 8)

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Just to add some nearly useless piece of knowledge/trivia about all this subject...the "Always On My mind" music video includes ONE SHOT (1'' in lenght) that isn't included on the final movie cut!! So it´s impossible to re-create it with a 100% accurate result! We can get near to 99,5% anyway... :/...

Re: Video Remasters

Out of all of their videos, Always On My Mind was the one I was expecting to see in that "HD" list because of the BFI work done on It Couldn't Happen Here. So who fancies ripping the Blu-ray disc and re-editing it to match the music video, presumably with the 4% PAL speed up ;) Actually is the vide...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

If you're ripping this to mkv files, I believe you can edit the header files to change the duration for playback. I've not done this myself but there is a setting for it, and I have used it to fix aspect ratio issues on a few files. The value is set for nanoseconds. Not sure about headers but I've ...

Re: Video Remasters

..maybe there are some hopes with "Heart" (no big expectations anyway...) and Always On My mind (that one was included on the new movie Bluray, isn´t it?? Is it really in HD there??)

Re: Video Remasters

... Most of these older videos are probably fake HD anyway - professional upscales using software. For example that second Opportunities video listed above claims to be in HD on YouTube - not only is this not true, it's literally impossible. HD video didn't exist back then! ... Welll mot "most"..AL...

Re: Video Remasters

You guys are talking past each other. It's true that filmed videos (which I think are all until you get into the 2000's) could be rescanned and the video effects (if any) could be recreated/recomposed to make HD versions of many of them. Now whether it is financially feasible is another issue. I wo...

Re: Video Remasters

Of course they´re just up-scaled videos since "negatives" of a native video flimed/edited piece never existed. ...which is why every HD release requires a ground-up rebuild using the dailies negatives and the original EDL. It's not rocket science. Many of the older videos were shot on film, which m...

Re: Video Remasters

..what I always wonder is how they manage to change/update the video quality but keeeping the views of the old original version previously published. I tried to do this a few times but counln´t find the way to.
