OK - here is the scoop on Further. There are a couple of segments missing from the DVD. One of which is the doug coombs segment with Back in Black. The Jeremy Jones segment with Ozzy is in there, but the song was changed from Crazy Train to Over the Mountain -- both by Ozzy. If you have a VHS version with Crazy Train on it, KEEP IT! It's a collectors item. After we ran the first 3,000 copies of the VHS, we had a major hole in our contract for the use of Crazy Train pop up, and we actually had to stop production and shipping on the video until we could iron it out. After almost $20k in markup on Crazy Train, we couldn't afford it anymore and went with Over the Mountain instead.
As for the missing segments, we had to cut 10 minutes from the movie before we remastered the surround sound. This was due to the fact that we were showing the film at AMC theaters as a regular feature in 40 cites and we had to cut some content to make room for their previews, adds, etc... We couldn't afford to remaster the sound twice, so we were forced to use the AMC theater version for the DVD. We weren't happy about it - but financial realities dictated it. That's why we put Area 51 on the Further DVD as a bonus.
This year the DVD for Mind the Addiction has no missing segments and some really cool extra features like "The Making of Mind the Addiction" and raw headcam footage...
Last year was our first attempt to do the DVD thing. I think we've got it pegged now. All of life is a learning curve.
Hope this answers your questions.
