Er, no, sorry, $20 is too rich for me. I could do $10 though, if enough folks are interested

Today's update comes from from a Hampton just off of I-75 in Cleveland, TN...

I just received a text message from my friend: "Video is Done". I'm here on business until I drive home sometime Sunday, assuming nothing goes horrifyingly wrong. Odds are I'll make it over to my friend's next weekend to take a look at it and take possession of the master. From there, it's just a matter of burning a bunch of DVDs and shipping them out to you (incredibly) patient people.

Thanks,

Phreon

I HAVE THE FINISHED DVD!

Post by phreon »

I have the finished "master" in my possession. I wish the finished DVD was as brilliant as the original Kodachrome film, but all things considered, it looks pretty good. At some point, I'll undertake a marathon splicing session and see if I can't get it to run though the projector one more time into an HD videocamera...... If I ever produce a cleaner version of the video, the original doners will get free copies.


I'll try to get to Microcenter during lunch early this week (going on pager Monday morning) to buy a spool of DVDs and mailers. Then it's just time giving the ol' burner a workout.

Thanks,

Phreon

Pager duty last week was a real b!tch. I have the cases and am in the process of burning the DVDs.

Thanks,

Pheron,
I missed the original post. However, I am interested at the $20 level for the DVD.

I am in some of the pics... The one with Tom Southworth in the red hat (Maine Guide style) loading aluminum canoes onto a white Ford wagon, the ones in a black decked C-2, vintage 1965, rolling a decked C-1, vintage 1963 and maybe others.

DVD..

Post by icyone »

First my thanks to Phreon for undertaking this epic project. If ever you had had any idea what you were getting into!!! Who knew??

I thoroughly enjoyed -- it was like being back at a CCA meeting in the first years I was discovering paddling.

But I have to say, with due appreciation of the early posts by Dave K and Bob H, I wish that there was a little insiders mini-guide to who & where. (OK, some of us are never satisfied...). Altho I'm not quite old enough (in paddling years, that is) to recognize the pictures, I'm sure I'd recognize the names, & would love to be better able to match them to the pictures. And who is the narrator -- I could make guesses, but--.

So here is my call -- would anyone -- Dave, Bob, JRS, perhaps -- be willing to offer up any mini-guide/commentary, perhaps wiki-style where others could add as well -- in sequence with the action -- that would help the history-handicapped to recognize the paddling heros of yore. The earlier posts on this thread are a start, but they preceded the finished product and are harder for us late-comers to connect with the action.

Any posts here with comments, stories, background, identifiers would be truly welcome, I'm sure.

And again -- thanks, Phreon.

Film Archive

Post by kentford »

Dang, Wish I had seen this before final production of "The Call of the River." Looks like some good footage! I rounded up footage from 50 different sources for our recent production, (including entire collections from Salida, DC, ACA, and others) so perhaps for now I am the de facto keeper of an archive for paddlesport.

Preview of our finished film is at http://www.thecalloftheriver.com

Check your email Kent.

If I managed to somehow overlook sending a DVD out to any of you, for the love of J.C. (Jacques Cousteau) , send me an email. Except for a few folks who have contacted me in the last month or so, I'm 99% sure I'm caught up.


I just burnt a small batch, so I'll be catching up with "new" orders shortly.

Thanks,

Phreon

Has everyone played their DVD by now? I recently got an email from someone saying they can't get their copy of the film to play reliably in their DVD player or laptop.


Thanks,
