    not john related, but Williams related ūüėā I just posted on the channel a remastering in 1080p / 60 fps of Save the Best for Last from singer / actress Vanessa Williams ¬†(conducted by Keith Lockhart with the boston pops). (posted earlier there is as well the tune sung before, colors of the wind (from Pocahontas / Alan Menken, the single version, not the "in the movie" version).

    @Martyprod, may I suggest that as your next project, you could remaster the Star Wars soundtracks.

    Hello, forgot to come here to advertise i posted an another remastered John Williams Video.
     
    As some maybe noticed on @Marc recent post about his cover of Theme from Sabrina, I did the remastering of the video he used. (I think it's miguel who gave me the original material 15 years ago,  so thanks to him !).

    so Where is "Theme from Sabrina" Remastered. During the remasterisation process, a technical issue surfaced that I only noticed recently. Unfortunatly the "solution" slowed a LOT the process to do all these remasterisations because my computer is not powerful enough.
    The "issue" is very present on "Theme from Sabrina" or any old analog material. It's everywhere on the picture.
    Getting ride of it take times (money too.., it needs some specific software).

    Meanwhile, you can enjoy the amazing version of Marc, the original one still available or Call of Champions below where the issue is hardly noticeable. I changed a bit the overall colors because the one from the original recording were awful.

    Hello There, 
     
    some of you maybe know my youtube channel martyprod2 where i posted around 80 Tv pro video of john wlliams conducting all kind of stuff, including his own music (or not).
    Some parts of my collections come from myself, and some from someone very nice from here..

    I Just started to remaster each video one by one in Full HD, Widescreen, pictures improved upscaled and cleaned, colors eventually reworked and a bit of new color gradding, and sound normalized (my hearing illness actually forbidd me to do more than that for now). I take this opportunity to post the stuff that i have in my collection and didn't posted yet, like this one, and which is the first one to be remastered. For the videos already posted, for the ones with few comments, i'll erase them and they will be replaced by their remastered version, and for the ones who have lot of comments, i'll let them online and will post the remastered version next to it.
     
    I'll post more soon, but it take a long time

    sometimes it's unfortunate... I saw the boston pops show you're talking about but certainly couldn't record it (because no free tape this day certainly). the VCR i had back then was horrible, and when i got a better one, the onyx channel where i was recording them was not there anymore or it was not displaying any JW stuff anymore (not sure, i don't remember it was 25 years ago).but I clearly remember seeing the one with linda and Mrs Clooney...

    someone posted the whole show on youtube. if you can try to put your hand on an mpeg /dvd file of the linda one (or with the autorisation of the one who own it / posted it), I can give it a try and put one tune at the top of the list but i'm not fast, and can't do all the tunes in one go, because i want to do other stuff first.

    I just finished the For Always one, must post it !!

    If i  have the opportunity to have others show, why not, but i'll not take the videos from youtube without the autorisation of the person who posted it. 
    and i would like an access to the source, most people post their material de-interlaced or badly done.b Bcause of this , the result is worst and make the restauration Ai algorythm difficult. That was the mistake i did with ALL my videos, that's why i'm re doing them all.

    some of them are so bad that it's impossible to do anything correct with it (or at least, it's not in my capacity ! (i'm not that great at this unfortunatly).
    but for sure, the home alone ones (at least from the material i have) will be impossible to do something correct. 

    I'm trying to work on the indy's first adventure, my source is horrible. maybe i'll use the original movie to replace the parts where the movie is show on the screen in front of JW (lol). maybe some of you know a way to have access to a better source ?
     
    Edit : Just checked must redo the whole For Always one  Da*n... 
    Little Preview.. the redone one will be better (with more details)

    Hello, The Materials i own where williams conducts starwars are old and/ore pretty bad, except one , that I had to remove 13 years ago due to copyright issue but can try to repost it as lot changed about ID content with youtube since then.
    it's a recording during the academy awards, where james horner play titanic and williams follow with star wars just after. 

    So I prefer for now concentrate on the 2 bostons pops recording that could have recorded direct from digital TV to a DVD recorder (like call of champions, salute etc), because it's much easier to do when the source is good. (on this one there is harry woundrous world, harry potter suite, for always etc..).. 

    I started to work on indy's first adventure, where williams conduct it in front of the movie, and it's not easy to make it looking good. the interviews with previn are long (around one hour and more) and it take a long time to process and de interlace.
    i had to give up to some, like one about return of the jedi, filmed by ABC or CBS on tv. :(.

    the steps to follow will be certainly not "star wars first" but the easier to do first with the best picture at the source, and the worst one at the end (like the salute to williams when he left the boston pops for example, don't know if there is a better material than the one i have.)..

    Martyprod reacted to Marc in Theme from Sabrina - French Horn, Piano & Orchestra   
    I usually don't start new threads for my covers but I feel this one is quite special !
    Theme from Sabrina has always been one of favorite JW pieces and I recently felt like playing it on my French Horn
    I ended up doing a mix of the original piece and the violin version, to which I also added little woodwind lines here and there.
    The backing track I used is the CD version of the theme, and to make things more interesting visually I synchronized the great video of JW performing it with the Boston Pops conducted by Seiji Ozawa !
    (a video originally posted and recently upscaled by my good friend @Martyprod  Thanks man !!)
    And so there it is, hope you'll enjoy it

    Martyprod reacted to JTW in John Williams conducts Filarmonica della Scala, Milan, Italy, 12 December 2022!   
    Maestro Williams is incredible. He’ll be two months shy of 91 years old in December, and it’s 9 months from now. How is he so confident that he’ll make it? Now I ADORE the Maestro, but let’s be realistic here. He’s at an age when it can be all over every day just like that. That’s just how old he is. I know that one can’t live like that, but still, he’s not 50 or 60, or even 70 years old anymore where he can plan ahead freely without having to worry about the end. But at his age it can happen anytime. And all the people around the world who are making plans, paying a lot of money to travel there and see him, what if something should happen like it did in 2018, or worse… I SINCERELY HOPE that nothing happens, but again, we should be realistic, and Mr. Williams should be as well. He’s planning ahead almost a year, like he was 18. I really hope all turns out great, but this is a huge gamble. 
     
    PS: Everything went smoothly in 2020, 2021 and this year(so far). Whoknows, he might live ‚Äėtil 100, and he‚Äôll have at least 5 more active years. But all this is just speculation and our hope, and we don‚Äôt know for sure. I‚Äôm hoping for the best, but I was already scared back in 2007 or 2020. Those events turned out great, but I consider myself lucky that theydid.
