:gopher: I do appreciate it, Garrett. I get your reasoning, but it just didn't click with me. I just find myself wanting the film to be as epic as possible, so when music is dialed back like that, it just kinda annoys me. Then again, it's your edit, not mine.

Music shouldn't overpower a dialogue scene, certainly ...

Back from other projects I just found time to breathe in
and finally download and see the last Recobbled 4 version.

Wow, Garrett (and ChrisWTF, and anyone contributing).
So beautiful. No more words... And a nice end credit ;-)
--------
Some pages back you asked for Blu-ray assistance.
I would gladly help out there.

Then I could fix any blocky source clip leftovers that made it into the edit.

And (only as a side job if it won't break too much of already invested work)
I would try my luck on pre-colour correcting (in 32bit float) all HD scans/intermediates.
Scenes that do not need too much recomposition from different sources like the reddish war machine came into my mind.

Some sources I do have, other not. (writing from another machine here, will specify later).

I guess you will want to wait for another scan on Helge's machine,
so this suggestion might be in vain, but still worth a try.

Glad you enjoyed it, Christoph. Your hard work was of course crucial to the creation of this version, in every way, and I can't thank you enough.

As for the new stuff, not all of the Keramidas Cut material made it in in time, but quite a bit of it did.

The Blu-Ray for this screening has been handled by Helge Bernhardt. I'd be happy to send you a few super-blocky bits of footage here and there if you think you could help.

I doubt we'll be rescanning the material now - too much time and restoration has passed (on the first half of the film especially), and most of the material is out of our hands. There's new stuff to be scanned and new work to do. Although I'm thinking of talking to KA about another project anyway, so we'll see.

I'd much rather have you working on the Bonzo Dog Band project, as there's plenty to be done there! I'm anxious to get all that over and done with. I could possibly use your help converting a Muppet PAL DVD to NTSC as well.

Dear Garrett Gilchrist,

The end titles to SAILOR AND THE DEVIL are not quite correct in as much as the words to the song, which I composed, were indeed sung by Alex Bradford but he is not the author of the words. I am the author of the words and composer of the music to this song which is registered with the Performing Rights Society.

With regard to the music which I composed to The Thief and the Cobbler I am not aware of any of its use in the finale edit.

Other works by Richard Williams to which I composed the music to and which may be of interest to you are LOVE ME LOVE ME LOVE ME and THE DIARY OF A MADMAN.

Yours sincerely
Peter Shade

I finally got a chance to view the latest revision of Mark 4. I am extremely stunned by the improvements, even upon a release not a few months ago.

The additional cell cleanup, storyboarding, and footage really add a huge new dynamic to the film. Not only that but, I like the way the new music is adding emphasis to key parts of the film and provides a sense of continuity that was lacking in some scenes.

I can't wait to hear how this goes over in Buffalo.

Well, The Creative Person, and Raggedy Ann, and the other non-Williams projects and so on.
