Edward Yang almost 4 years ago
There was a complete retrospective of Edward Yang’s work last year at Cinematheque Ontario, thanks to James Quant. I’m not sure but I think it must have traveled to some other cities as well. I was fortunate to see every film, based solely on my love for Yi Yi, and the amazing things I had heard about his other films, and I wasn’t disappointed.
If you’ve never seen A Brighter Summer Day, it’s pretty much mandatory viewing.
GOING FROM HIGH-DEFINITION VIDEO TO DVD over 3 years ago
I can’t say I’m a pro at this, I tend to do these operations whenever they become necessary rather than on a regular basis, but I’m sure you should be able to get great quality downsampling from 1080p to SD in Compressor. Out of curiosity, why did you go to H.264 before going to MPEG-2?
I have some resources I can check into and I’ll try to get back to you on a good workflow for getting quality DVD compression out of an HD stream.
DOES ANYONE KNOW THE WORK OF CLARA LAW? over 3 years ago
The Goddess of 1967 is a revelatory film simply because of the incredible acting of Rose Byrne. This was the first time I had seen Rose Byrne in a film and was totally convinced and captivated by this young blind actor, only to find out later that she wasn’t actually blind! I was completely blown away and have been a great admirer of her work ever since. She’s also one of the few stars I’ve seen who is even more beautiful in person than on screen / in print.
As for the work of Clara Law, it’s pretty particular, I’m not sure if it’s my style, but at the very least her vision is unique, and that’s saying something. Shot selection and cinematography are usually quite striking. I haven’t seen too many of her films so maybe I’m just running my mouth.
