Subject: We saw the boom mic in Songcatcher!!!

That's right, Spaw, it's another *Ta Dum* SONGCATCHER thread!! I couldn't resist this one. The Cinema Club brought it to town, showing this one night only and it was a wonderful movie, loved the music, but I am wondering if we got the "B" version?

The boom mic was so prevalent it became an ongiong joke. It was pretty absurd. Rog thought maybe they'd done it tongue in cheek at first, but then we decided it was too often to be that, or if it was, they went way overbaord!

Other than that, the singing and picking were incredibly beautiful, as I know has been said plenty of times. There wasn't enough of Taj Mahal, but it was still wonderful.

So...sorry Spawmyluv...but I wanna know...was the boom mic on purpose or were we cheated outta the A+ version...anybody?

Thanks!

When you see a boom mike in a movie, it's nearly always the projectionist's fault, not the fault of the film makers. I posted an explanation as well as some links here.

Oh you're a pair of pips!!! Dainty Davey can stick his curly pow up my ass...........

So kat, you couldn't have added this to one of the other 9 or 10 Songcatcher threads huh? Well, I guess not because there are so damn many and the info is such a mish-mash, you'd have to add it to all and that would mean refreshing them all and............

Oh well......I'm hoping to check out a copy as the release to video is the 23rd and I have told two stores they need to get it. When I'm the only one who rents the thing, I figure they'll revoke my cards.

Naw, ya see, Spaw, I had to do this one special, just for you because it was more about the boom mic thna the show!**BG**

Jim, thanks fr the explanation. I know at the beginning the projectionist hadn't put on the right lens and the whole thing was stretched horizontaly so much it was comical, like looking at it in funhouse mirrors. They quickly changed that, but your eplanation also tells me why we couldn't see the bottom third of the movie, at times. There is one scene where he gives a dulcimer and from their shoulders down was off-screen. I think I will call the Cinema CLub and the threatre, today and tell them they should re-show it, free of charge!

Thanks!

Spaw, You're actually going to watch Songcatcher??? It would be worth it just for Emmylou Harris' "Barbara Allen"

jaze - how are you? You haven't been around much lately.

Spaw - maybe we can bring a copy of Songcatcher to the Getaway. I have a small TV with a built in VCR. Then we can all watch and sing along while you scratch your curly pow. What do you think?

SINSULL, when you get back from the Getaway,you should start a thread dealing with everyone's reaction to watching the video there.

Songcatcher, the Getaway Video.

Good idea, RR. Maybe even a thread with photos and reactions to photos as well. Think Spaw will let us film his curly pow?
