Sayonara DVD

The day has finally come for me to say goodbye to DVD. In the mid nineties, I recall car booting all my entire and beloved vinyl collection as I shifted up to CD. Then five years ago I digitised all my CDs to MP3 and stored the old disks in wallets in the loft. Now […]

Gone Fishing DVD comments

I have been getting feedback from people who have bought the DVD, on the movie and the whole package, and I thought I would share some of them with you… Remember, if you want your own copy in PAL or NTSC, you can still buy it here…  And if you are new to the blog, […]

We had missed a person off the credits. And […]

One day to go…

One day to go… And the film is still not complete! And BAFTA keep changing their minds about what we can and cannot do in terms of screening… And I am about to have a heart attack! The seminar is all coming together nicely though, and it looks like it will be an amazing day. […]

The HD Rabbit Hole Goes Deeper…

One of the reasons I went for HD DVD over BluRay was that I knew that it was much closer to DVD than BluRay is, on a purely technical and mastering level. After doing some poking around, I discovered something rather cool – it’s possible to master an HD DVD onto a normal DVD. This […]

First stab at the DVD cover…

I have spent the day designing the first DVD cover for ‘Gone Fishing’. This is very different to a feature cover in one major way – it will never act as a POINT OF SALE for a buyer. The only people who will get the DVD will either be given it, or come across it […]
