Winter Equinox Update
We've made progress on Winter Equinox since my last post. In late 2010 I received the original 16mm Kodachrome print and 16mm full coat magnetic soundtrack of Winter Equinox. Translated, this means we have a good picture source and good sound source on which we may base a restored version of WE. I transferred both to high resolution files and now have the original 73 minute WE edit on DVD and BluRay. It looks and sounds great. More recently I received the master stereo mixes of all 26 music cues we recorded for WE on 3 - 10.5" reels of tape. Next step will be to get them transferred to a digital file so we can re-edit the music sequences in stereo.
John Clendenin recently overcame some WE legal hurdles, clearing the way for us to proceed with a restored version. We are planning an updated WE with new commentary from the skiers who are featured in WE as well as other competitors, organizers, and manufacturers who competed on or were involved in the 1974 IFSA Freestyle Pro Tour.
The next step is to raise the money needed to move forward with the restoration and the new edit. And we need to determine how we will distribute it...DVDs over the internet, theatrical, cable TV, some of the above or all of the above. At this time we don't have a target date. I'll keep Epic Ski posted.
Thanks for your interest. I hope this will be worth the wait.
