Rick I think I remember stealing that VHS tape from you. Those were the days. DVD just doesn't provide that warm look the way VHS does.

Actually, if I remember correctly, I believe the quality of the 3/4 inch beta version was quite superior to that of VHS. It would be nice to get this on DVD though . . .

Gary, I did not mean to offend you in any way by my comment. I think you are taking it the wrong way: I did not mean to suggest that you never cared about the state of matte painting, but rather point out how jaded you sound of late and how your recent reply was refreshing to hear.

I may not have the full fare all the time, but at least I want to ride the bus ...

Funny like a sad, sad clown. O Solo Mio, baby....

As a compliment, the book "The Invisble Art: The Legends of Movie Matte Painting" is also a compelling, entertaining and educational read as well. Lots of stuff on Whitlock, Dutton and loads of others.


All the best,

I still haven't gotten my DVD and haven't heard much from the company...kinda wondering what's going on.

dentsinger-I am shocked to hear you say that about Invisible Art. That is probably my most prized book that I own. It is not an educational book, but there is loads to learn from there. Amazing reproductions. oh well, to each his own.

I finally received the DVD yesterday! and about time too

I'll leave the review to Dylan ...but I will say, that the company selling the Whitlock DVD's are very un-professional.

They are more than happy to take your money straight away but they won't deliver until you chase them up about it. I phoned quite a few times only to get an anwering machine that no one responded to and emailed 3 times before someone replied.

The DVD is duplicated on a DVD-R and the cover and label is printed on a consumer quality ink jet printer. For $90 they should have done better!

Frickin great! I absolutely loved seeing this dvd, since I get geeked out about traditional matte painting. It is an incredibly rare inside look into the art by one of the absolute masters. It was great because they walked through the production of a shot from filming to delivery. There is actual footage of him painting which was a real treat...also funny to hear him sing as he paints. You even see his turn at acting in a bit part from Mel Brook's History of the World part 1. There is a lot of great before and after shots. Some of the shots that they show look better than a lot of matte shots nowadays. It goes to show you it is about color and composition, not about slapping photos together. The only unfortunate thing is that it is so short...just under a half hour. Of course, I wanted to 4 hour epic documentary about matte painting, but I am happy to at least have this. It is also fun to see a young Syd Dutton and Bill Taylor. I think I have already watched it 3 times. If you are interested in traditional matte painting, then I highly recommend this.

Okay well maybe I am just panicking too much. I guess maybe I was getting concerned because all the stuff Ive read about concerning Prince Albert piercings said they generally will only bleed for the first 24-48 hours before they significantly slow down. Although, my piercer never said anything about using a sea salt water combination. He just told to pee into a cup and stick my bits in that for a bit while in the shower because my own urine will work as an antiseptic. So thats what Ive been doing. Do the sea salt water combinations work?
