Well that's what this is - it is no more than a home movie. It does its job and reminds you of a great time we had.
I wish I got paid $3,000 for making a home movie.

I expected a DVD worth $30, which is exactly what I paid.

Actually being a bit of an amateur video editor myself I expected a proffesional job done by a company who has more advanced software than I do. Thus can do a better job in cleaning up, cutting out, restoring footage as well as sound etc... That's all I expected, but than since I didn't buy the DVD I really didn't get all that dispointed.

And nope it's not spite Brian, I'm afraid if I would have that thing in my house I would rip it down and clean it up, so its safer not to have one in the house. And since I can't think of one person that might want this thing for a present...
Besides I feel Starlight got plenty money already, I think they should just dig a big hole in their back yard and let nature... "preserve" them.

I got my DVD too, and I'm pretty much in agreement with Feldon. Ugh.

Well, all I can say is that it was probably chopped up on a PC with a cheap codec and cut with some $159 Pinnacle "professional" editor. HEHE Okay, I'll quit talking tech... I was honestly not surprised though as I too saw some of the gear these guys were using.

It is what it is. Unfortunately, there just isn't much we can do about it.

But yea, $3K is a little steep for that kind of dupes. WOW.

Chris

Having watched a little of it last night, I have to say that I agree with all the reviews so far. Also, I found the constant fade ins and outs during conversation very annoying, but not moreso than the occasional change in camera angle which was of even worse video quality and terrible audio.

Obviously a very fun convention that I regret I couldn't go to, but they could have done so much more with the quality of the DVDs.

this is minimally related. The Chuck fans threw a tiny Con. They had to throw fast due to NBC not giving the show a premiere date till about a month before premiere date, but they got a bunch of people and they got most of the cast (looks like Captain Awesome was busy) and they made a little video and they put it on youtube.
And here it is
The credits were pretty. The rest was more than I've seen, not scrounging youtube for ChuckFest Videos. I'm not a major league Chuck fan. If I need to know something, I ask my friend Kay. (I did work at the saving the show, though)

Peachkoala,

Thanks for linking that. You know what? That looks like just a lot of FUN. Imagine. A beloved TV show. Mingling with the actors. Showing interaction between the fans and the actors. Just having FUN.

P.S. The video looks really good.
