OK, so as soon as I have all the materials gathered together, I’ll do the following with the visuals:
- Attempt to align the 35mm footage I’ve received in digital form as closely with the Blu-ray footage as possible, and crop accordingly (hopefully, very little, if any, of the 35mm footage should be trimmed);
- Clean up the same 35mm footage;
- Recolor the Blu-ray footage to match the 35mm footage as closely as possible; and
- For the 1990 theatrical version, recreate the closing credits.
My release, once complete, will consist of the uncensored roadshow version with the unedited Pastoral Symphony and as much of the original Deems Taylor audio as possible, and the 1990 theatrical version, also with the unedited Pastoral Symphony. The main audio track will be as close a recreation of the original Fantasound experience as possible, with additional tracks in mono 1.0, stereo 2.0, Dolby Stereo 4.0, and Dolby Digital 5.1.
ETA: I almost forgot to mention, apart from being the main audio source where possible, the laserdisc release will also be used as a timing reference for the 1990 theatrical version.
Sounds awesome. Hope you make this your priority project, cause as I mentioned, Fantasia is in dire need of some releases.
Not sure if you need it, but I have the 2000 DVD release with the censored bits added back. I got that from myspleen. The source for censored bits is fairly bad but it is VERY well inserted. Maybe you could see how well that is done. Or maybe you’d need it for the audio source? In any case if you need it I can get it to you.
Also, what’s this about closing credits recreation? Educate me.
