I first heard of this film a few months ago (01.09) from an old high school buddy (an artist working in the film industry on sci-fi designs). We were recommending old odd, obscure sci-fi fliks to one another. Upon seeing a few screencaps I was immediately enthralled with this film.

The first edition I got was the R1 NTSC Image Entertainment release. I was about to upload it when I found a discussion in a forum about which DVD edition of the film has the best picture quality. There were screencaps comparing several editions, all with radically different images. The R1 Image version was the worst, really really bad. The next best was the restored Ruscico edition, good - but very very high contrast. The best, in the opinion of those in that forum (and myself), was the French Bach edition, having excellent detail and grayscale, compared to the others. I immediately ordered a copy from Amazon.fr.

The biggest drawback with the Bach edition was it's lack of subtitles, having only it's original French intertitles. In the other releases there is no sign of the original intertitles, having been replaced with simple, computer-generated white lettering on a black background. I had read several complaints of people saying they felt the high contrast b+w subtitles (replacing the intertitles) distracted from the experience of the film. The R1 Image DVD had only English, but the Ruscico had options for 14 languages.

Then the idea came to me to create a new edition, to combine the best elements of the Bach and Ruscico editions. I would use the images from the Bach, replacing the French intertitles with new English ones, and taking as many subtitle tracks from the Ruscico that I could manage.

The soundtrack on the Ruscico was alright (to be kind), with a "new musical arrangement using the works of composers Alexandar Skryabin, Igor Stravinsky and Alexandar Glazunov". But I felt I would enjoy the film better with something a bit more interesting, and not just a random collections of songs. I could think of several artists that had enough instrumental work to their credit that could comprise a soundtrack made soley of their pieces. As I began collecting and listening to music for the project it quickly became apparent that the music of Philip Glass would fit the best, especially songs from "1000 Airplanes On The Roof", a sci-fi extravaganza.

It was necessary for me to learn a multitude of new skills for this project since I'd never done any work of this kind, and the learning curve was steep. I tried out many different programs for the tasks, starting over again with each one. I also needed to enlist the help and support of people to read and correct the subtitle streams extracted from the Ruscico DVD. Since I was creating new English intertitle screens, and had made a few changes to the wording and the division of paragraphs and such, I wanted the subtitles appearing below the English words to reflect the changes I'd made. After receiving back the first set of corrections from my assisstants I then made even more changes to some lines, requiring that they be checked again. Many thanks go to the kind people who helped me with this!

Once the video work was complete I turned my attention to assembling a new soundtrack. This task turned out to be the most demanding. I wanted the music to reflect the moods and actions onscreen, as every soundtrack should. As I began matching pieces to the film and simultaneously learning how to use the Soundbooth software, I realized I could make alterations to the original recordings to suit my needs. In a few cases I changed the length of songs to fit key start and end points. Then, learning of an ability to use selection tools, combined with a color display of the frequency spectrum within a track, to discretely select and then delete a selection, I realized I could all but remove certain instruments or other elements within a song to suit the action onscreen.

This proved to be a painstaking process, especially given the fact that the app was prone to crashing without warning. Countless times I lost 3 or 4 hours of work. But that may have actually contributed to a better end result, causing me to gain more experience along the way, several times completely reworking things I thought I had completed. In the end, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out, and think it will provide the viewer with an improved experience of the film.
