I don't see anything on that link that allows you to order.
Thanks. Was able to order and pay quickly. So looking forward to this release!Bob Furmanek said:
Makes sense. 5 hrs of HD content (2.5 per eye) is about the compression maximum of a BD-50 without sacrificing quality.Bob Furmanek said:So far as the trailer, we had to keep the set at the 150 minute mark and there simply wasn't room.
I'm in for Vol. 2--There's so much pioneering pre-50's material on the disk, seems like there should be some of the Golden Age left for a second collection.Todd J Moore said:Ahh...sounds like there could be a Volume Two down the line! I like that idea!
I've seen some of the BFI's 3D material and whilst I deplore their mercenary attitude, tbh you're not missing much.Bob Furmanek said:To be honest, there is more material but the cost of licensing is a killer.
This entire project was done entirely out of pocket and I'm not a rich man.
Thankfully, the great people at the National Film Board of Canada were VERY supportive and gave us a rate we could afford to license their four newly restored Norman McLaren films.
On the flip side, I tried to license some material from the BFI and the rates were exorbitant. I tried negotiating (ie pleading) with no success.
So they have several wonderful restored 3-D films from 1951/52 that nobody will get to see...
