Steve Lopez hasn't had a good story in a while and the newspaper where he works is laying off journalists due to falling ratings. He had been looking for a story in all the wrong places; when he happened upon a homeless violinist, Nathaniel Ayers, playing beautifully with only 2 strings. Ayers was a former Julliard student who begins to trust Lopez, and a friendship grows, but not necessarily to the benefit of either. While Lopez intention is to help Ayers; he isn't sure that he has in the end. Some believe Lopez saved Ayers, because he became his only friend. Can the act of caring be enough to help a person who has a mental illness? Even still, Lopez has been positively influenced by witnessing the musical genius he has found in Ayers. He was inerested in Ayers and so were his readers and public officials, including the mayor, who pledges money for homeless centers.

This is a re-encode of kamera's release......
The video is not the greatest by far but better than anything else out there at the mo....,the source is
really dark and there's some camera movement,also there seems to be like 3 lines running down the screen and
a couple of black flecks.
Audio is ok and you can understand it easliy,however it sounds to me as if it's had a noise reduction filter ran over it and
it's been set too high.......
I'm guessing kamera as been given these by someone else or have picked up some cheap silvers because their cam
is a HD cam with usually great pics (seen some releases...non english titles).
Sorry for the delays in releasing and answering pm's my net was down for 4 days so couldn't access any pm's nor upload
Good news all back to normal now and will go through all my pm's so just hold tight i shall reply
Right tried to brighten it up the best i could.....not 100% happy with it at all,however did the best i could with the source.
Also slightly changed the rgb colours and also increased slightly the chroma,gamma,lum,contrast and lowered the rgb black
base down to remove unwanted glares.
Add a contour filter and sharpen filter aswell..........oh and also used a video noise reduction filter as the sources was covered in it.
Overall based on a TS v7 a7 m5................Not to bad and probably won't be no better until a r5 or screener now ;-)
Would not say it's going to be good on the massive lcds alot of users have but it was watchable on my 26" upstairs......which is
what i tend to do now with non r5 or above quality films.
Ps PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD MY RELEASES IF YOU DON'T LIKE RE-ENCODES OR IF YOU THINK BY SOME
HOW ME RE-ENCODING THEM IS GOING TO MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE R5'S....BECAUSE THEY DON'T!!!!!
