The Gift…

On July 4, 2010, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Back in January 2009, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails released 450GB of HD concert footage from the “Lights in the Sky” tour for fans to edit.

After 18 months, the Nine Inch Nails fan community have created “Another Version of the Truth” – a 3 disc release bringing together numerous editors, designers, and web programmers to create a professional digital film, followed by a physical release created by fans for fans.

Now, “thisoneisonus” has released their final project from this footage – a professionally mastered, color-corrected and authored Blu-Ray, which is available free, as a bittorrent download.

If you want to practise cutting concert footage, the original source footage is also still available here.  Once our new server is officially commissioned in September, I’ll load the Victoria concert footage on for anyone that wants to practise.

    This sounds great Dave! Thanks!

  2. 450GB? no one will be able to grab the entire source with monthly caps from the ISPs.

    That’s probably true, but since it’s a bittorrent release, you could have a torrent client slowly trickle-download it over a few months time so as not to blow over download caps.

    The other plan was for me to use the BCIT network to download them all so people could just bring portable harddrives to use to make a copy of the footage for edit training.

    In reality, I don’t think anyone would download the entire concert series. I downloaded the Victoria set, and it was just over 100GB. One full concert is more than enough for practise unless you’re a huge NIN fan.
