This has been a long time coming, but our Alfred Hitchcock short is getting re-mastered in HD for the first time. Here is a screen shot of the work in progress. Much more detail and working on color correction too. This is going to look stellar! There is still more work to do as I'm not 100% happy with the lighting.
This restoration almost never happened. The original files were thought lost forever on a drive that crashed. Thanks to some recent technology from Rescue Drive, I was able to rescue the data from the bad hard drive so the process can begin. This was meant to be as I could not restore all of the files from that drive.
Reviewing this short in HD really shows all of the flaws that were in the piece. But the idea is not to focus on the negative. We have to keep in mind how this short was put together. This was done by some artists that are the best in their field. But they were donating their time and and working in their spare time. So it's hard to be overly critical. Someday we may want to explore these characters a little more and when that time comes, maybe some fine-tuning will be done.
In the meantime, the restoration continues and we really can't wait for you to see the finished product. If you loved the original, we hope you find this version even more enjoyable to watch.
Look for the final sometime in January. We will post it here first when it's done. Stay Tooned!
