Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre. Post production Update 40
Master discs going through customs- slowly - Wish I had more scintillating news. Terrible customs problems which also I have never had before. Completely inexplicable and had to change all the documentation. Seems OK now. Reminds me of the old days when I worked on feature films and we had to get stuff back out of Russia or into Russia.  Next stage will be whether the sound is fixed. I think it is but I have to wait for verdict in US when they test everything.

Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre Post production Update 39

Both discs for the film have been remastered - PAL and NTSC. Checked and rechecked and all seems OK. Tested discs various times so there doesn't seem to be any problems as far as I am able to tell. I have revised all my mastering procedures  and tied to cut out anything which might interfere with authoring process. If problems arise in the US end with the sound then I will have to send copies of the films to the UK and get the company I use there printing discs to remaster them independently and pay for masters to be made.

As I have stated I have never had this problem before so its new territory for me and even though I have  experience of working in studios both sound and visual and have plenty of technical support from specialist in Russia with who I work in the film and television industry here. The discs will go off tomorrow and it will be another two week wait before things are confirmed in the US and up and running and as we know the Christmas period is approaching.

Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre Post production update 38

Finally figured out what might be wrong with the sound on the film, at least I think I have. Will remaster and rerender in a few days time once I have cleared a backlog of other urgent work which has taken precedence over the last week or so. On my way to getting it completed. Tomorrow I am being interviewed for the Moscow Magazine "Moscow Life" edited by John Harrison. I hope to cover a lot of material about the new film which wil hopefully coincide with its release. I will also touch on other aspects of where my work is going but I think the vakhtangov film will take centre stage and John wants something current for his readers. I met John at a showing of my film Architecture and the Russian Avant-garde and he wanted to interview me then but it didn't work out for one reason or another. This is better because if I time it correctly it may be in an issue which will be around the time of the release or the time of the premiere in London which is tentatively scheduled for the end of April. More news here as and when.

Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre post production update 37

After all the work and waiting I am unable to say that Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre is ready for release. Yet another delay due to technical reasons. There is a problem with the sound and it will have to be remastered so that it works properly. Its something I was worried about but thought I had overcome. With al the films I have made I have never had this problem so its making life complicated at the moment. On Monday I will take some advice from from people who have a more solid technical grounding and either will fix the problem myself or get a specialist to deal with it. Basically the sound on the DVD master keeps jumping and this is a common problem. As I say I have never had this problem before. It may be the way I am processing the master, or it may be faults on the disc itself. I've been told its not an uncommon problem but I have to admit its new to me. I might have to think about getting a better quality master disc. Its unclear how long the delay will be but it could be a week or two perhaps more as the master has to be sent to the US and tested there as well. They have the final say on the technical side of things.. Anyway that is the sate of play for now.  Further status updates forthcoming. For those waiting for the release thanks for your patience.
