Spent the day at PKI yesterday...still upset that I couldn't attend BeastBuzz as I had to rush back to get to work! At PKI's No Coaster party and in line for The Beast yesterday the 25 Years Of Terror video was played. I walked right past Jeff S., not even gonna' murder his last name, from PKI and forgot to ask if this video is available for purchase. Does anyone know if this video is available for sale anywhere? Thanks in advance for any info! *** Edited 6/28/2004 12:00:40 AM UTC by Marky Mark***

The video is not for sale. Heard lots of people asking for it. I have heard that everyone who was in the video got a copy of it. I know for a fact that dude from ACE who is in it got a copy. He said he will never sell it. They showed an extended version of it at the awards show at Beastbuzz. The day was a total blast! *** Edited 6/28/2004 1:10:01 AM UTC by BillBeast***

Yes, and they allowed you to video tape it during the showing too - bootleg style!

The video was OK. I think it went more in a marketing direction than a documentary direction, but I will say that the sheer volume of 70's video and film they got their hands on was impressive. The lighting for Sean's interview was good.

I think it would be cool to be able to view parts of that video in slow motion during some of those construction fly-bys they had. When I saw it at the awards, the awkward angle made it difficult to tell what part of the ride was actually being constructed.

Just to clarify, the version that was shown in the theater was the same version that is shown in line, minus the commercials.
From the response I have seen and heard, I think it would sell great if they did decide to sell it.
I don't know if you could make it out or not, but each person that was interviewed had a different "scene" of The Beast projected on a wrinkled sheet in the background. Perhaps the lightning that was focused on those being interviewed drowned that out a bit but I thought it was a very cool idea. Three of us did our interviews within an hour of each other, and two days before the old PKI sign fell over.

No, by lighting, I meant all of it, including the projection (though I couldn't tell if it was composited in or projected, because it was very clean). Usually when someone tries that stunt the back-lighting is too hot, but it looked good. Props to the production company.
