Bonus - Bouncing Off Clouds, from Jay Leno : 10/1/07 (sourced from 16x9 Hi-Def broadcast)
**Note - Both my camera and DVD recorder were set to 16x9.
However, for this video to play back in the correct 16x9 aspect ratio,
it requires various "tweaking". Examples - On my Panasonic 16x9 Hi-Def
TV and with the disc played on my Panasonic DVD player, I have to go into
"display menu", followed by "4:3 aspect", and change it from the default
setting of "auto" to "normal" instead to have it play in 16x9. If played on "auto",
the picture is 4x3 which makes everyone in the picture look "tall and skinny".
On my Sony 4x3 TV and with the disc played on my Panasonic DVD player, the DVD
player again needs to be changed from "auto" to "normal". However, in the TV menu
under "setup", the setting for "16x9 enhanced" has to be changed from the default
of "auto" to "on" instead. "Auto" plays it in 4x3, "On" plays it in 16x9.
Filming went only "so-so" for me at this show. It was filmed from 7th row
dead center on the floor. Due to this non-usual filming spot, I had some audience obstruction
and also had to hold the camera in an awkward position to avoid getting caught. I also chose
not to film the first few songs until security was done seating people.
I also had to deal with a drunk, loud, annoying "fan" in the row in front of me.
At one point, the guy sitting next to me yelled out "shut up you drunk fairy", and you see Tori look up and smile.
I used manual exposure, white balance was set to indoor, and color level was set to +2
(from a setting which ranges from -4 to +4). Even though this is a standard definition torrent,
you will notice that the picture quality has much less grain and noise, since it was videotaped
in Hi-Def, as compared to the average standard def video camera.
I think this is the first audience shot Tori video in High-Definition, so it raises the bar for picture quality.
Needless to say, I filmed this show because I'm a fan, and I'm releasing this
for the first time anywhere, here, as a free torrent for other fans to enjoy watching.
This torrent is NOT designed for people to download and then sell copies of it on ebay
and elsewhere. If people would like to see me torrent other shows I've filmed, then people
need to respect my request please.
