Re: Who wants to see a TAS Remasered project?

The only way this could REALLY work would be to obtain the "voices only" track from Filmation, use the now released original [TOS] music, and THEN have your "balls to the wall" animation with it. That is the only approach that would interest me (as an animator)
I wholeheartedly agree. Before anyone gets me wrong I do like TAS in its existing form and even think that it better reflects some of the original Roddenberry concepts than TOS.

But if it is the storytelling which matters (IMHO, it does) then it's important to make it palatable for a new generation of viewers that already like TOS, but will have a hard time getting over the animation style (which essentially is just the packing, but it is the content that matters).

If the animation style and repetitive TAS music distracts new viewers from enjoying TAS, then remaster it by all means. Personally I'd really love to see it.
