I’m currently working towards getting The Song Remains The Same mastered to DVD before Christmas. Thankfully, converting the burned-on subtitles of the Fanime/YouTube version to a removable DVD subtitle stream is easier than I would’ve guessed. I’ll take one last stab at converting Song for 16:9 display, but I’m not expecting much. Right now, I’m testing the sub timings for the main feature, after which I’ll convert the subs for the trailer and the deleted scenes and then start the DVD authoring.
However, I did make one last edit to the movie, and it’s significant enough that I decided to replace the YouTube upload that contains the scene affected (Part 8). My biggest disappointment with the game’s story is that the villain is not defined very well. In an effort to fix this, I rearranged some dialogue so that the details of the villain’s ultimate plan are now revealed earlier. It’s a small change, but one that makes the story a little more coherent (In the original staging of the scene, Faye and Kent seem to be responding to revelations they haven’t heard yet) and adds more tension to the ensuing big three-way brawl that originally occurred before this information came out.
