Any info on what might be on the 2nd disc? I've already got INFERNO on the old Anchor Bay DVD but might be persuaded to upgrade...

Still haven't got a copy of TERROR EXPRESS  :o
I just posted on my blog about the hurdles I've had to jump just to try to get this one...should've pre-ordered it from D&T in the beginning...but that steep price tag + shipping to the U.S. (over $50+) was just a bit absurd for a new DVD.

Great News! Camera Obscura are planning to release AL TROPICO DEL CANCRO by Edoardo Mulargia (under its German title INFERNO UNTER HEISSER SONNE) incl. English subs.
I've seen the bootleg and would really like to see the movie in its full glory in a decent transfer.
Love that dream sequence ....
LP are Anita Strindberg, Anthony Steffen, Gabriele Tinti, Umberto Raho.

but anyway, there was no mention of this in the company release archive, so at least now that's done.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: CameraObscura on 26 May 2010 - 15:33
Along with our 2-DVD set of INFERNO we will also release a 1 Blu-ray and 1 DVD (for the extras, as there will be many) set!

The disc will also feature German, Italian and English language tracks along with German and English subtitles.

Thank you so much for all your nice comments! That's what really gets us going, and reassures us that we're probably doing the right thing!

As for Italian crime: We're definitely on it, it just takes some time.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: CameraObscura on 29 Jun 2010 - 18:20
We have a little problem with three dialogue scenes in the English language track of INFERNO which we just can't understand because what's being said is just way too unintelligible. These scenes are the three sequences where two characters whisper about what they are up to. I can't even tell if you're actually supposed to understand what's being said or not. It's not quite clear. But we'd sure like to subtitle these spots in German -- as we did for the entire Italian language track.

Maybe one of you connoisseurs of the English track knows what they're whispering. If so, please let us know.

The more peope who check the better. I really need to know if it is at all audible for a native speaker or if there is just no way. Someone might hear more than someone else does.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 30 Jun 2010 - 19:44
I'm working off an NTSC copy so if I've got the timing wrong let me know.

00:15:37:00

Female voice "She's been nosing round"
Male voice "?? everything right away"
Female voice "Yes, we'd better get it all out of sight"
Male voice " Be careful, though. He doesn't want anything changed"
Female voice unintelligible



The second section is a bit tricky - lots of overlapping voices - will do a bit more work on it and follow it up with the final section tomorrow.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Zarith on 01 Jul 2010 - 15:56
I've processed the audio signal - reduced the noise, removed the low frequency hum, etc... -  and here is what I found:

SEQUENCE A - near the elevator:

Voice 1: "She's been nosing around..."
Voice 2: "Then let's hide everything right away" (not sure about the "let's")
Voice 1: "Yes, we'd better get it all out of sight"
Voice 2: "Be careful though. He doesn't want anything changed"

SEQUENCE B - in the library:

These are random words/whispers. I don't think you should translate it. It's supposed to be unintelligible.

What I could hear: "... no, really? Where?... it's at the back ... I think it's a ner...sophy... by the way... are you going to listen... find the knight... it's about the relationship between Zen Buddhism..."

SEQUENCE C -in the apartment:

Again random stuff... The first part is in reverse. In the end we hear "...just be careful though".
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: CameraObscura on 02 Jul 2010 - 13:15
That's pretty much what I could make out. So you think the rest is just not important in termos of subtitles, and just not possible to understand?

Post by: Zarith on 02 Jul 2010 - 15:47

Yes. These are mysterious voices, cryptic dialogs. They have no meaning at all, it's just a sound effect to create an atmosphere and build tension. By adding subtitles you will destroy the effect.

The only sequence you should translate is the first one, near the elevator. It's loud and clear enough to be understandable.

Good luck!

Pretty much what I think. It's the only one of the three sequences that makes any sense at all after checking out the other two a couple of times.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: CameraObscura on 03 Jul 2010 - 10:01
Okay then. So we're pretty safe if we only subtitle that first sequence!
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 03 Jul 2010 - 10:26
I'd say so. The other two are just non-sequiturs.

Alrighty, the first extras are locked and loaded. Here's a list of what you can expect, more is to come:

•  Audio Commentary by film critics Christian Keßler and Marcus Stiglegger
•  Featurette „Of Darkness and Fire” (97 min) featuring cinematographer Romano Albani, special effects artist Fabio Traversari, makeup artist Pierantonio Mecacci, Argento-protegé Luigi Cozzi and Lamberto Bava
•  Featurette „L’Inferno delle Tre Madri” (23 min) featuring Dario Argento, producer Claudio Argento as well as the actors Eleonora Giorgi and Leopoldo Mastelloni
•  Featurette „Critics on Fire” (20 min) featuring the film critics Antonio Bruschini and Antonio Tentori
•  Q&A featuring composer Keith Emerson andactress Irene Miracle, hosted by Video Watchdog editor Tim Lucas (31 min)
•  Introduction by cinematographer Romano Albani
•  Locations-Tour
•  German, English and Spanish trailers
•  Photo Gallery
•  Booklet

Everything is subtitled in English, as usual.

Terer's not much you WON'T hear about INFERNO in these featurettes. „Of Darkness and Fire” alone is so full of information that your brains will be fried. Fabio Traversari really is the man.

Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Paul on 09 Dec 2010 - 12:25
Price is still a critical factor though. The Arrow releases are fairly cheap if bought from Amazon on Play. If you inport the US or German discs you're looking at a bit of a price hike.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: broonage on 09 Dec 2010 - 12:43
Totally Paul.

I absolutely love the Arrow Video Blu Rays (cheap, nice looking, chock-o-block with goodies, great transfers), and unless there is a critical factor to change to the other releases, I'll stick to the Arrow. Don't forget there is the FNAC release too for about 20€.

BU are great, always have been, just they seem bland compared to Arrow Video these days to me. CO are awesome too (no doubt about it! Their Martino Giallo DVD is a critical release IMO), however they are expensive.

I also like how Arrow is totally 100% UK.

BOB SQUAD was a CO/Koch Media co-production. Koch owns the rights, we took care of everything else (authoring, subtitles, packaging, bonus etc.)

Since our edition is sold out for some time now, Koch decided to release a couple of hardboxes with NSM Records.

Camera Obscura DVDs are great but I don't like the "Digipak" packaging design id rather have an amaray.I only just got Spirits of Death and already the cardboard slipcase is coming unglued and inside is just more cardboard. I can imagine in a few years I only have the disc left! And at around £30 per DVD this is not good!

Ordered my Blu from Diabolik a few weeks ago, seems the best way to guarantee getting their releases is to pre order. At least that's what I think unless you want to wait and see if they pop up later for inflated prices. Would be cool to be able to order directly though.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 18 Jun 2014 - 19:10
The dvd was out a couple of weeks ago. Diabolik had it in stock and might still do. The bd was delayed slightly as it wasn't back from the replicators but I believe it is imminent.

Or sell on Amazon! I hate having to go to obscure German DVD stores who only accept bank transfers, everything is in German, and is not so easy to navigate! And also ordering from US dealers is not ideal either! Rant over.  ;D
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 19 Jun 2014 - 10:07
I find ordering the Camera Obscura discs from Diabolik actually works out cheaper than ordering them from Austria. If you do want to order from within Europe then dtm is your best choice (although they've recently ramped up their postage charges) as you can pay by card and view the store in English.

They can't sell them on Amazon as they aren't fsk rated.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: JAMIOUSE on 19 Jun 2014 - 10:23
But they could sell them via eBay or their own store. If Camera Obscura want their products to sell they need to start making them more readily available and easier to get hold of. Yes Diabolik sell their releases but it does seem a little silly importing a European release all the way from the States with added postage.

Everytime Camera announce a title I think great, always wanted to see that then the headache of where to actually purchase it from begins. I used to use OMG but they seem to have vanished after their Kickstarter campaign.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 19 Jun 2014 - 11:23
I don't think they have problems getting their product to sell seeing as they pretty much all go out of print in a matter of months. I don't really find it a headache getting hold of them at release.

Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 19 Jun 2014 - 18:44
The problem with KultVideo was being emailed with the shipping total after checkout before you can pay. I didn't receive the email once, not sure if it was their fault or my email, but it just made it too much like hard work. I just want to click and go.

Some unpleasant news: The storm which caused some horrendous floodings in Munster, Germany a few days ago also wreaked havoc in our storehouse. Several hundred copies fell victim to the water. Particulary remaining sets of LA ORCA got it the worst causing the title to go OOP as of now. MARIALÉ got extremely decimated as well which is why, due to financial reasons, we're now thinking about a reissue -- this time on Blu-ray, however. So now we're asing you: Would you be okay with strategy?

My tiny Camera Obscura collection has grown by 2 (to make 5, although two are the same film)! I couldn't resist double dipping on Spirits Of Death, despite my DVD shamefully still being sealed. Perhaps I'll be able to sell it on and pick up another CO release to take its place. I wish I'd known about the label earlier, hopefully some of the ones I've missed may make another bow as BD upgrades.

thats been the same for a long long time. for many it seems to be what they expect, so they can upgrade. personally, i like the chance to see films i've not seen before - i've bought a handful of particularly good films on BD that had comparatively poor DVD releases many many years ago. CO releases are a little more off the beaten track, and given the limited releases they give them i can see some of them making their way to labels more inclined to put out familiar things, but perhaps this will also help CO with their more unusual stuff and some might even pick up the 88 discussion and find CO through that.

Well, if a licensor who owns worldwide rights wants to license it to another territory - he's free to do so. What can we do about that?

Doesn't mean anythings been given away if it comes out elsewhere (like they have said), those who actually want the film would have probably bought the quality CO release anyway, I should imagine mainly only those who don't stray out of their realm of 88 and Arrow and ignore things released elsewhere will probably buy it anyway.

Not CO related but Perfume of the lady in black is coming to uk too.. Raro, Xrated, 88 who's next ?

I agree that seeing the same film released 1000x can be off-putting and even annoying. GIVE US SOMETHING FRESH AND NEW!!!  :-* :-* :-*

However, and not taking sides here, I don't see anything wrong with 88 releasing a film to the UK market. CO are not the UK market. I guess many folk don't feel comfortable looking further afield from their own shores.

But as Aaron said, I have 90% of CO disks and LOVE every single one of them. So will not be picking this up from 88. I have however picked up a couple of their disks since they are nowhere available on Blu worldwide.

88 are a quick buck / cash in outfit. im starting to loathe them. I must buy 1 in 10 of their releases anyway.

and whats stopping them ripping the Camera Obscura print from their BD and printing up their own discs? i wouldn't put this past them. I thought this film was a problematic restoration for C.O. due to mouldy negative are 88 really going to do this work again?

Because it's a criminal offence?  :-* and 88 aren't a rival company to CO at all.

technically it may be criminal but who could prove it? and C.O.s overseas English speaking buyers and 88's buyers are in the same market. but im sure because of price imbalance it would just mean CO sell less. COs DVD of Forbidden Photos hanged around a long time, presumably because of BU's DVD being widely and cheaply available.

would you be okay if CO stopped putting English option on their releases because of 88?

Well yes, in the sense we have access to the internet these days and can order anywhere. But they are not the same territory. So no problem with them releasing a Blu in the UK even if it was already released in Taiwan right? All about licensing etc. Where is the harm in that? But yeah if CO have already released a title and if I was a Blu Ray publisher in the UK, I wouldn't even bother looking at it, what is the point!!! lol

CO are by far the No Shame of today, so the answer is obvious.  ;D ;D

If saved me £25 then yes, yes I would. CO are as boutique as labels come. But that label comes with a price. I haven't got the energy to really care about these kind of things anymore. If a film I love comes out via CO first then great, I'll stump up for it. If I am yet to buy the CO release and 88 announce it then there is only one winner.

Didn't know this was a collaboration with Arrow, how will it affect Camera Obscuras sales as Arrows stuff is significantly more friendly on the wallet. I can see quite a few folks skipping the CO release and going for Arrow...

88 Films just rip foreign Blus and add the English language track. That's all they do. I won't support any of their releases.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: babybreese on 09 May 2016 - 13:35
They do a little more than that...c'mon, they employ Wadell :)

And they are working with CO which took me by surprise!

Over at bluray.com the 88 Insider posted  ( the typos are his )
We seem to have very unsavoury reputation for some reason and in our opinion it's undeserved. We have never "stolen" a transfer. We operate like every other company in this business, we enquire about a title with a licensor, see if a master exists and if it is satisfactory then either licence it using the existing master that has been offered by the licensor, or if we feel the expense is worth it as in the case of Nightmares in a Damaged Brain, Splatter University, Burial Ground etc we might create our own at a very large expense.

It's difficult to know what else to say, we have never worked in conjunction with another company until Amuck as we have never been approached to do so, we don't really know what we're supposed to have done wrong....

 ;D
Some of this smells like bullshit to me, I have heard they have been approached to participate with other companies in paying for new masters, and have always declined.  Then when the new master is done and paid for they licence for a fraction of the cost.  They also have crowdfunded some restorations and are in the process of doing this yet again.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: Strigoyu on 09 May 2016 - 16:20
I really don't know what's worse: just ripping or doing that thing you say... On the other hand, CO have stated that they have NEVER worked with 88 to share the costs of buying a HD master. 88 are just liars!

The amount of bullshit in this thread is amazing. I'm not a big fan of 88, the Waddell thing, gladly releasing censored films, crowd funding masters for films that were originally with another label etc but I've bought some of their releases.

This is what CO had to say about Amuck:

"88 sublicensed the UK rights from us. We will supervise the scan and restoration process (which will begin shortly) and provide 88 with the restored master."

Some people want to believe every word that comes out of Walt and the ever-likeable bitter Bill's mouth and take it as gospel and others just want to make shit up in their head and spout it out. Anyone with a pair of fucking eyes can see they don't just rip foreign blus. They just use the same masters as X-Rated, Raro etc etc

As for the matter of waiting for transfers to be available even if paid by someone else, that's just business isn't it? As much business as CO realising it's good to work with others or license to others as is their own choice, or as much business as Bill buying worldwide rights to something specifically to stop other territories releasing it???

Saints and sinners obviously in some people's eyes. Unbelievable. Loads of people are acting like they've got money on a horse. This is my hobby. I deal with enough wankers regularly in work so I'm not about to let a bunch of people I don't know get my back up. Some labels I'd probably rather not buy from but if they're the only choice I will because as yet any of them are yet to kill members of my family or friends, or carry out genocide.

Seriously, I bet there are much bigger cunts dealing with the food you eat on a daily basis than any of this lot so go ahead and fucking starve yourselves.

I wish this wasn't all in the Camera Obscura thread as it would be nice if it was cleaned up so people could actually just talk about their releases.

You may be right in a lot of what you've just written but I must say that's not the way... I mean, the words and vocabulary you use. Try to relax and use your mind before writing, mate. Take ir or leave it, but it's a good advice.
Title: Re: Camera Obscura (Germany)
Post by: the blob on 10 May 2016 - 17:34
Why? Because I used some "bad words" and pointed some things out? I'm calm and certainly did use my mind beforehand which is advice you probably need when you go around saying they rip foreign blus which is probably libel legally.

I just say that there are many ways to express your disconformity with other people's feelings or opinions. I think I've already told you that you might be right in a sense, but that does NOT imply that you have the right to reject other people's opinions and impose yours, as if it was a dogma.

You know, like many other guys out there, what this label has done with some of their releases not long ago. And that's a fact. A real fact. So, come on, mate, are you going to try and reject that "real fact"?

Hate getting twisted into this thread (we should be speaking about CO anyway!!). But curiosity has grabbed me. Can you detail what this label has done and show how you know this?

I ask as I have bought a few of their releases (no problems with them so far!!). What I do  know is the "subtitles problem" which hit one of our board members which frankly left a bitter taste.

This is where I get most of my stuff these days. The owner is a nice guy and you can talk prices with him when you meet him in person. Of course it helps that the shop is just around the corner for me, so I can't comment on his shipping fees.

A bit more expensive than they usually are (likely due to the weak pound), but I ordered from Strange Vice. I usually get from DTM and order a bunch of titles to spread the cost, but there's nothing else I really want at the moment (well there's loads, but not financially feasible things). Really looking forward to this. I just re-watched Solange this week too.

Everything CO have announced so far has also come out. They just take their time. The only exceptions I remember are the INFERNO bd, which they produced but handed over to Koch Media for licensing reasons, and Andrea Bianchi's CRY OF A PROSTITUTE, which they passed on to FilmArt. In the case of the latter they informed fans early on. So I wouldn't be too worried about the release of their other titles!

Camera Obscura about Cry of a Prostitute:
Quote
QUELLI CHE CONTANO was cancelled because the lab was unable to provide a scan that met our quality standards. All they could bring up, after many complaints from our side, was a telecine with incredibly warped frames (and generally unsteady picture stability as it's common for telecines from problematic negatives) before and after every cut that we would've needed to remove -- which would have resulted in a 3 minute shorter running time. Which is unacceptable, so we cancelled unfortunately.
