Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

Are you serious? Does anyone, apart from JJ Abrams, actually like these annoying lens flares?

And there is the trick... those are still images, but you wouldn't notice those effects in a moving picture any more than you noticed these effects when you saw the movie.


Audiences today like this.

TOS is from a different era... an era where early TVs and bad reception provided the poor image quality. All that is removed when we watch TOS today, and it has most likely hurt it's perception by non-fans.

Fans, on the other hand, are constantly looking for every little detail and so like the ultra clear images. Therefore reremastering episodes in this way would be an attempt to get a wider audience (outside the fans).

I honestly think this would work. And it can be done at very little cost.
Wow. I didn't even notice most of them. I do love the lens flare after Captain Robau enters the bridge on the Kelvin. It felt like space. It felt right. I loved it.

I was concerned about them looking at the early still images. But watching the film, four times now, they don't bother me one iota.

Yeah, it isn't like they are stuck in one spot in frame all the time... but moving them judiciously as the camera moves can be used to focus the audiences attention on the foreground characters and the story at hand.

The effect on the audience is not that different from adding smoke to a set to lower the visibility of everything outside the action right in front of the camera. But this is actually less noticeable (again, when the images are in motion).

Harkening back to TOS, most people probably don't know that it was actor Sean Kenney who played the wheelchair bound Captain Pike in "The Menagerie". Later, he was to appear in "Arena" as navigator Lt. DePaul. If Pike hadn't suffered any facial damage from the bertol rays, he might have looked like this:

An FYI, I met Sean Kenney at a convention a few years ago. Very nice man. Anyway, he had a beard, longer hair, and was, of course, much older. Well, he had a picture of Jeffrey Hunter from a movie he had done (I think it was King of Kings.) Hunter looked then, with the makeup from that film, a LOT like Kenney does today. Their choice of recasting for The Menagerie really was right on the target.

I was just wondering, could someone try "Trekifying" a Norman Rockwell painting? I think it could be interesting.

It's not Rockwell, but that just made me think of how Jean-Luc and Beverly would look in "American Gothic".
