Beatles doc on Disney+

Started watching this doc and quickly noticed it is very sound driven over lots of repurposed video footage. Has anyone come across sound clips of some of this original footage to help give a good before and after comparison regarding the forensic cleanup? The cleanup of both video and audio seems to be very state of the art. Cant wait for the 16hr directors cut

I did a bunch of publicity videos for this - There wont be much of the original footage in the wild yet as it was in the vault until not long ago.

Most of the audio is from mono 1/4 tape running at 15 ips used by the film crew with some of it on 8 track from the studio.

There was 4x the audio as they just left the recorders running over the 22 days they were shooting - cameras were on/off a lot

In plenty of places conversations were drowned out by cranked up amps ( on purpose and unintentionally ) - the Sound dept wrote ML software to split out everything, so much of it, especially the intimate conversations were not at all audible originally. There is a video showing comparison but not sure where this is available, it was shown to a bunch of press

Indeed it has been.  I'm half way through Part II and it is definitely fascinating both visually and audibly.  Seems Mr. Sutton and Mr. Johns did the best they could in 1969 to record everything but it's amazing what the new tech and the crew harnessing it has done to bring it back, including all the private sidebar conversations.  Beware of the hidden flower pot plant mic!
