You've seen the version on YouTube and wondered if there was any more from this artist?
Well, there is! The only thing is it's very old and degraded original footage that's been stashed away in out film archive. Add to that, the shot wasn't set up very well so we would have the best quality film result. But we've gotten so many requests over the years for the rest of what we had, so, here it is...
OK, so here's what happened:
The original film roll was shot on DV tape (Back in the day), and it had a lot, and we mean "A LOT" of noise on it!
That's because at the time we filmed these scenes, we didn't pay the proper attention to really, really critical things such as:
Color balance, Lighting (a real biggie there), Shadows and oh so many other things. That's so unfortunate because there are some really good close up views of a variety of great performing artists feet in this archive.
Now, here's what we did about it:
Undaunted, we decided to do our level best to salvage what we could because, well, there "are" some really great views of artistic feet in our archive, and specifically with this artist! So we cleaned up as much of the noise as we new how to get away with, but with out losing too much detail as well.
Then, we left the content at the original Standard Definition size of 640 x 480 because scaling or re-sizing up the footage only lost more detail anyway. Then, we slowed it down nice and smooth as we could get it, just so you can take in all those rhythmic, artistic movements.
Beautiful, buttery smooth foot pointing and positioning at it's artistic best!
So, if you liked the YouTube version, and was curious to how much we didn't include, well, here it is! No, it's not perfectly shot, but still worth a look just the same, and the best part is you'll be supporting our current projects that ARE being shot in High Definition, and, we will be adding "4K" very soon!
So, we are working on some awesome stuff and your support will help us to keep it going!
