Years ago, I heard tales of how some guy shot oodles of Van Halen videos and never let them out, sounded like a fairy tail to me!! Didn’t he shoot he audience video of Pensacola ’95? any idea how many times he shot VH?
I recorded quite a few (audio) shows over the years that have never seen the light of day…sadly many prolly never will…

Won’t see the light of day ’cause you don’t have time or ’cause you don’t want to? Not judging, just asking.

I know we talked about Pensacola ’95, and I think I remember him saying he shot it. His plan is to release all of his videos – nothing is sacred. But he only wants to work with me as far as getting them onto DVD/blu-ray. And since there are thousands of them (all on tape BTW), it’s going to take a decade or two (or three if he keeps shooting shows in the meantime, which he continues to do). He has a good paying job that allows him to afford to do this – but probably more importantly – he isn’t married!

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

I recorded just about everything I went to for years between 1991 & 2015. From Robert Plant to Eric Clapton to Garth Brooks to Aerosmith to Gov’t Mule…Mostly classic rock stuff.
Many shows just never got transferred to CD & are just sitting rotting on DAT tapes that I don’t have time or motivation to go through. If I could ever get a decent setup to easily import the DATs straight into the computer I would, but they’d still need to be mastered from there… Many of my VH shows I torrented back in 2005 & 2006 were put onto CD back in the late 90′s. Since I started a family I just dont even go to concerts any more let alone work on tapes from eons ago…

If he has this much video… sounds like he needs a whole crew to put the video to DVD or Blu-ray.

As I said, it’s all on tape. He doesn’t have the time or means to make copies, so he has to trust someone with his masters – a matter that he takes very seriously.

Furthermore, it’s very hard finding someone with 1) the know-how 2) dedication – and 3) that you can trust implicitly. Someone asked me a couple of days ago if I would author a 2004 show that he shot. He had sent it to two different people over the years – and neither ever completed it. I knock out at least one show a week; and some weeks I do two or three shows (if some or all of them are single-cams).

How long, on average, does it take to complete one show?

It all depends on how many elements are in a DVD production. If it’s a single cam and the only audio is the cam audio, that’s the easiest production there is. But even with that, you have to track each song, encode the video and audio (separately), create menu background images, menu graphics, build the menus, and compile the DVD. If I sit down to my computer after dinner, I can usually finish up a single cam with cam audio only DVD before bedtime.

However, a lot of DVDs involve multiple angles and alternate audio. With those, you have to do everything listed above, but also synch the audio and video sources and crunch or expand so that everything runs at the same speed (this is especially true for old analog sources), and then you have to mix the video angles. Those productions take at least a couple of days; and depending on how busy I am with other stuff, might take up to a week.

If a show is shot in HD, much of the work in the first paragraph has to be done twice to create separate DVD and blu-ray versions.

All of your time and energy put into the authoring and filming you do is immensely appreciated.

You don’t have to download these from Dime (or some other torrent site) as all three are available from Dropbox. Dropbox is fast, easy, free, and no account necessary. Just click on a link and in a short while, the DVD is on your harddrive ready to be burned.
