The A-Team Broadcast Restoration
Time

The more I read about the little edits the more I remember and the more it bothers me, the pilot movie been one with the music replacement.

I downloaded the pilot off Google play in HD and still the same cut messed with version so I purchased an old VHS of the pilot to check if the music is replaced in that version, it should arrive in the next day or so.

I loved the pre credit teasers when originally shown in the 80’s and hated it when I found out they where missing off the DVD’s.

The episodes I listed previous have the teasers in place on the episodes.

I only wish I had kept all my pre recorded episodes before I upgraded to the DVD’S I purchased the original release of season 1 & 2 then purchased the small box set version with all seasons in the UK but still have missing teasers.

WestWorld TV Show into 2 part Mini Series
Time

I have just finished part 1 of 2 of a fan edit of West World.

The TV series was a tad confusing with multiple time lines shown back to back in the episodes whilst dragging those stories out over 10 episodes.

What I wanted to create was a 2 part mini series but with a story arc that was simple to follow in near chronological order.

Part one was created to show Arnold suffering confidence in Westworld before the opening whilst still suffering the loss of his son and setting Dolores on a game before asking her to do something unspeakable.

We then move forward several years with the fate of Arnold unknown until the close of part one and Dolores suffering flashbacks to something she may or may note have taken part in and questioning her existence.

We then have the arrival of William & Logan which sets the most part of this part one arc with there time and story in Westworld and there paths that are set once they meet Dolores and ultimately Williams turn to the black side which is then rounded off by Arnolds fate.

This will then lead into part 2 with the Man in Blacks arc mixed with Robert Fords and Maeve in the same story line.

Part 1 is 108mins long with 100’s of edits across the 10 episodes to achieve this story arc and with music inserts from the soundtrack.
It’s not 100% chronological as that was not my aim but more self contained but unless you know the timelines to heart you won’t know the odd insert isn’t from that period as I’ve taken care not to include Robert Ford or Bernard or any other main character that will be in part 2.

The fan edit is 720p in stereo I have already made part 1 available on everyones favourite organ, I’m working on part 2 and if any fans want it I will upload when done.

& don’t mention Knight Rider on Blu Ray that has the pilot movie condensed into a single 46mim episide. On the A team they chopped the pilot movie in 2 parts same for Range Rider and bend in the river and cut sequences out of those episodes such as in range rider part 1 when Decker is introduced the sequence had flashbacks from the pilot and season 1 episodes slotted in but missing on the first run of blu rays until fans complained, so ignore the tag line uncut on the box.

Is there anyway to tell if I got the repress? I own the BD set and didn’t know there were any syndication versions.

If you’re talking the A-team set, check the Season 3 episode “Bend in the river” , and see if it’s split into 2 parts.

Moving targets
Knights of the road

I checked my planner as I recorded the episodes CH5 aired in the UK over the last few weeks of season 1, afraid to say apart from been in HD they were cut, not only replacement music but also scenes cut out either for time or violence and the pilot film chopped in half and wrong fake opening titles tacked on them inserting the actor who played face in the pilot into the normal season opening titles.

I have selected episodes recorded onto DVD from airing recorded off UK Gold in the UK from several years ago, I may have to check them and the episodes I recorded.

I have redone the TV series Smith starring Ray Liotta into a 2.5hrTV mini series in 2 parts this is an upgrage of aversion I did a few years back with better software and a bit more experience.

I cut all the fluff out and made the edit to the Art Heist and the Bullion job the flow is just on those jobs every thing else is gone so plays like a mini series with a beginning and an end unlike the TV show.

Also added in some stronger language from other ray liotta movies and a complete opening and closing credit sequence.

Added a fewclips on YouTube if allowed.

TV Shows on DVD ruined by music replacement or cuts/edits: Restoring them back to original state (a project) (Update: The Andy Griffith Show: Season 3 DONE)

Hunter had a lot of music replacements in syndication and the DVDs, including reusing season 1's opening for season 2 for no real reason (the theme was the same, the scenes changed). Most of the music changes are understandable and nothing absolutely major, except for the two-parter in season 1 where McCall becomes a singer. The edits on that one are downright painful.

 

Hunter is one of my favorite shows too. Too bad I don't have any episodes from the original airings, or otherwise, this would be another one I'd be doing in a heartbeat. I have both the 3 seasons released by Anchor Bay and the complete series released by Mill Creek.

What they did to Hunter during the first and second season were unforgiveable, it was like Miami Vice without the music, just killed the show on DVD.

It was so bad I purchased a german VHS tape of the 2 parter the snow queen not that I understand badly dubbed german but all the music is original as show on tv so you get McCall singing and all the other original songs intact, I tried my poor attempts at editing to the dvd version but the time difference from tape to DVD to redub it just wouldn't work.

The only original episodes I Own in good quality with original music are the Shooter Episode and Wanted Dead or Alive that I taped and converted to DVD some time ago.

I also have some rather poorer quality episodes on tape I traded around 5 years ago of selected episodes from the 1st and second season but the picture quality is not great.

Would love for some fan edits of this show.

Superman by Taolar (Formally: Son of Jorel) WORKPRINT AVAILABLE
Time

Glad to hear the project isn't dead after all your hard work that went into the pre release, seems to good of an idea to drop, yes there are lots of fan edits of part 1 and 2 but noting of one independant film in respect of both parts.

And your newly filmed sections were a wonder and slotted in greatly to give a great intro to superman returns, hope you get the time to put the gloss on a near completed project.

Hi lorang, I've been too busy to do much work on this, unfortunately.  But that's because business is up, which is good.  It definitely feels like the economy is getting better.  Hopefully this will somehow mean I can spend time on this in the near future.  I'm still passionate about it.  And I plan to show some stuff off by the end of the month.  :) Thanks!

 

Any new stuff to show us yet Taolar?

Many thanks.....

He you guys go.

Full credit to TMBTM

Quote:I worked a bit on the "burning teleporation" effects. It kinda works (but still looks very CGI).

Here are some pictures of this 2 seconds effect. The background is a random frozen picture that still needs to be changed with a spinning background, and the effect itself looks better in motion

What about the news reel footage in the Abyss extended cut were those aliens are showing the cruelty of human kind via old news reel footage, plus its in 2.35 widescreen it also has snippets of nukes which could give a message out like the explosion at the begining of the movie, nukes = death.

Some of this can be found here to give you an idea

10.I it possible to add a couple of neck break sounds in the White House attack when Ursa kicks and karate chops a couple of the guards, her actions look very lightly a bone break sound may make it look more edgy.

Sure!  That's a great idea!

_____________________

Thought I'd have a bit of fun and try and do a rough cut of this sequence and make it a little more tough, hopefully the changes are not to in your face.

I have added extra blast noises to the explosions with the rocket lauchers.

Added 2 blood sqibs to the two guards who Zod shoots.

Added a little rubble and fire when Non walks to the 2 soldiers.

Added extra fire when the rocket launcher hits the ceiling.

Trimed by a couple of frames the body guard being thrown through the wall, got rid of the bouncy wall.

Added a blood sqib to the guard on the floor that Ersa kicks in the face followed by a bone break, also trimmed his hiding on the floor by a few frames.

Added a more powerful wack by Ersa to the final guard.

Like mentioned its all pretty rough just to show that it can be a bit more violent and show the villans as bad ass villians.

Oooh the clip is Mpeg and Pal encoded.

Superman by Taolar (Formally: Son of Jorel) WORKPRINT AVAILABLE
Time

 

I have just had the opportunity to watch Son of Jorel and for a pre release it scores very highly with what you have attempted to do with many high points and a couple of nags.

The overall edits with part one concerning Superman the Movie are mostly flawless, I was very impressed with the edits, I watched it with a friend who didn't notice any edits until nearly into the first half.

A few niggles with me are minor on this section but I'll list them for any creative review from Jo public.

1. After the credit sequence there is a fade to black and sound drop with Jorel approaching earth, this fade out didn't really suit with the sound drop a little jarring, possibly better with some form of a blend with the end of the fanfare Superman theme credit sequence then approaching earth.

2. The introduction of the Otis character is lacking the reason why the cops are following him. In the original it's in the hope he will lead them to Lex, with Otis not a major character the inclusion of this section may help.

3.The rearming of the missile by Miss Teshmacher, Otis and Lex, not sure on this one, nothing wrong with the scene as its needed, but I thought the fake car crash sequence may of suited it better excluding the comedic elements with Otis tho, whether that’s possible I don't know.

4.The sequence in Lex's underground lair when they are discussing the missile and detonator, obviously they are originally talking about 2 missiles but the voice editing on this section seemed a tad rough.

5.This one I hated in the Donner Cut, and is dependant on how you are watching it but the release of the 3 super villains (as Lex calls them) I hate the very bad blue screen work here as they are floating in space, the Lester footage is a lot better if its possible to add Zods FREE! Quote on the Lester footage it will look a lot better to me, sorry pet hate on Donners cut.

6. The unfinished FX shot of Perry White reading the news headlines, great to see what you are going to do here.

7. This one is my biggy Lex's trip to the Fortress of Solitude, there is no explanation that I could see of why Lex is heading to the North Pole and to find the Fortress or even how he knew it existed did puzzle me this one!

8.The villains arrival in the Hick Town, with Zod and Ursa looking at the arm wrestling then Bang one of the guys thrown through the wall of the bar, would work better with the inclusion of Ursa sitting down with the guy then we'll known Ursa throw him through the wall.

9. The sequence straight after the above with the guy pointing a Shotgun at them and Zod stating these humans are beginning to Bore me, was confused as to why you replaced the finger beam with a double eye beam, the single finger beam would be better as when it burns the guy its a single beam, Gotta say love the FX shot of the burn and scream, gives it a darker edge.

10.I it possible to add a couple of neck break sounds in the White House attack when Ursa kicks and karate chops a couple of the guards, her actions look very lightly a bone break sound may make it look more edgy.

11. The sequence were Clark is begging for his powers back off his father is truly missing the Brando footage Clark just finding the green crystal leaves it unsure how he gets his power back. The Donner/Brando footage explains it way better.

12. Love your new ending, but the voice over in the Donner cameo explaining they have found Superman’s home needs a little bit more tweaking. 

These points are minor, in my opinion and with what Taolar has achieved is truly amazing and I do give him high praise indeed, the minor points aside there is way too many plus sides to list. So to any one wishing to experience a full Superman experience get Superman: Son of Jorel and fully support Taolar and hopefully a DVD completed version soon???
