Alleycat’s Project List

2 Replies, 3125 Views

Thought I would make a thread with a list of the projects I have done. 
I appreciate in a streaming world there are people who don’t want to watch physical media, but as a huge supporter of it I want all of my projects on disc. Having invested in professional blu ray menu creation software, and spent a lot of time learning the sometimes complicated art of java blu ray menu design, all of my projects will be released as blu ray files. Also, with the help of a friend, with professional looking covers, booklets and disc art.
With most of these projects I received help and guidance from several fanres members, such as capturing LD audio for me or giving general advice and assistance - so a massive thanks to you all.
Criterion Preservations

Every collector knows the name Criterion, but a lot of their most memorable titles have not been reissued on blu ray. The collection is an attempt to preserve some of their past titles, most of which were only released on laserdisc. At the start I set myself some rules, the discs have to include any commentary and the same type of audio (e.g. mono) ideally uncompressed from the LD where possible. They also have to contain every special feature from the LD/DVD and have a menu that looks identical to an official criterion blu ray menu.
This in itself was a challenge as the criterion menus contain animation, and depending on the number of chapters involved it required an average of 100 menus working behind the scenes to make it look right. I even took screenshots from the official discs and rebuilt each part, with the same colours, fonts and font sizes etc.

Blood For Dracula
Flesh For Frankenstein

This is a collection of cult, mainly Italian, movies that I feel need attention. Most of the movies in this project will be SD video.

Very intriguing list of projects, especially your Above the Law/Righting Wrongs project. I know of a project that attempted to reconstruct a version of the film with the 'happy ending'. I'm curious to know the scale of your project?
Added your list here: https://forum.fanres.com/thread-1553.html (I forgot I made that thread... Happy )

If you will give your collection a name, let me know so I'll change the entry in that thread.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad
