Nearly finished this project, and figured I’d post ahead and see if there was any interest in it, or if anyone had any ideas for other things I might include. This is a disc of supplemental material about Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain to act as a third disc in addition to the excellent 2-disc DVD available from Kinowelt in Germany. (It’s the only standard-def release internationally to contain all the extras from the Blu-Ray release.) Here’s a rough list of specs, let me know what you think.

<span class=“Bold”>Format: NTSC DVD-5 (4.7GB)

<span class=“Bold”>Special Features</span>
<span class=“Bold”>·</span> The film with commentary track by Darren Aronofsky. This will be the only audio track, and the video won’t be the highest resolution so as to fit more exclusive material on the DVD, as opposed to a film already commercially available on another disc.

<span class=“Bold”>·</span> “Together We Will Live Forever” (Antony Hegarty Vocal) – custom music video made up of clips from the film for this alternate version of the end credits theme featuring a vocal by the lead singer of Antony & The Johnsons.
<span class=“Bold”>·</span> Trailer/Teaser Gallery
<span class=“Bold”>·</span> Photo & Poster Gallery with audio of Comic Con 2005 panel featuring Aronofsky and Weisz

I know The Fountain was a very divisive film, and I’m sure it’s not the cup of tea of a lot of people here, but for those who do like it, let me know what you think. I’m not able to upload the disc online, so will be looking for someone to help me with this.

This sounds great and I'm really surprised no one else has replied yet.

I'm happy to torrent on myspleen.

Thanks pavemental (Malkmus fan at all? )

This should be finished pretty promptly in the New Year, though I've been having some problems with my DVD drive. Might very well buy a new one soon, so we'll see. Anyway, like I said I doubt I'll have the ability (or the time) to upload this onto the Internet, so if anyone wants to be sent a copy they can upload to Fanedits.org or something similar that would be very cool.

The only thing that might in theory delay this project is that I'm investigating creating an isolated score track
