Remastering The Legends

Part of what i do is Remaster all those old classic films as they are now fading fast, amongst those are such classic Television Shows like Lost In Space, Batman, and Starsky and hutch,  along with boxes of reel to reel tapes of master recordings.

Not Only is it a thrill to remaster these classics Audio, Music and soundtracks, it is awesome to be working with the legends of the silver screen in a way they have never been seen before…..in High Resolution HD.

One Particular hard one was “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World” (1963)

it’s original Master was starting to fade, and lose all of it’s technicolor quality, a problem that was not foreseen back in the 50’s and 60’s.REMASTERING before2

Remastering a Cinemascope  feature like this film, has proved both thrilling and exciting to do. colour mapping is required on keyframes to correct the colour frame by frame quite tedious but well worth it.
