msycamore said:the DVD is to no use for us as they are for the "Director's Cut" with its many dialogue differences, that's why I've made a new English sub-stream for the restored original cut in the first place. At first I had planned to just fill in the blanks with the few audio differences you and SilverWook had pointed out, but when I found out that they had taken such liberties in the dubbing, it altered that plan. So, I'll need your help if I'm gonna do this.
Still, I can use most of the dialogues from the DVD, being careful with the re-edited parts and adding the extended parts (which we already translated). It makes the difference for me between accomplishing it in a month instead of four. I study medicine and I cannot dedicate a lot of time to re-translate an entire film from zero.
Yes, but again, why would you want to do that, when my srt file is a complete English transcription of the original cut your Italian cut is based upon. Some dialogue and scenes of the original and Italian cut doesn't even appear in the DVD version. So there is no way around it, the DVD is to no help if you want a complete comparison with the Italian dub. You will just need to alter the lines in my srt file where the Italian dubbers took some liberties. We're not talking months here, you will not need to re-translate it from scratch, I doubt it's that different. If you don't want to translate them right away just mark the differences you spot and post them here in this thread, and maybe Leonardo is willing to help out, the more the merrier. ;) here's my file, http://www.sendspace.com/file/pjp2y9 it's not synced and fine adjusted yet, but all the lines are there.
I won the original auction . The only other bidder didn't outgun me by very much. I suspect it was some bearded guy living on a ranch in Northern California. ;)
Hopefully, I can arrange a screening over the weekend.
Oh...so you did get it, you bastard! ;) I simply misread your earlier post about being outbid, that is fantastic! Congratulation. :)
We want you to be aware that we have no plans—now or in the future—to restore the earlier versions.
