A New Coat of Paint

Which side of the fence are you on?

Are you a Purist?  You know…keep the classics the way they are. Sure, they show their age but in the same respect, it not only shows how far movies have come but also for those whose past and fond memories tie to the classic films and tv shows of the past.

Are you a Neophile?  With the innovations in digital video, why not enhance the storytelling with updated visual effects?  Remastering allows new viewers to more easily connect with science fiction shows of the past.

For me, I guess I’d be the guy straddling the fence…enjoying media in all its forms.  I did run across this video on Vimeo by a user named Merrick who remastered footage from Battlestar Galactica, a sci-fi television show from the 70s. Lloyd Bridges was guest starring as Commander Cain; Anne Lockhart as Lt. Sheba.  Good job, Merrick!
