We have recently been asked to assist with preparing a feature film, 'This Thing Of Ours' for release on online video streaming platforms.
It was originally released in 2003 and directed by Danny Provenzano and starring him alongside Frank Vincent, Edward Lynch, Vincent Pastore and James Caan.
Using the internet and old school mafia traditions, a crew of young gangsters led by Nicholas "Nicky" Santini attempt to pull off the biggest heist in the history of the mafia. Nicky must first convince his uncle Danny Santini, a respected caporegime of the Genovesso crime family in New Jersey, to put up the necessary "seed money", $50,000,000.00. When Danny agrees, Nicky - along with his partner and friend Johnny "Irish" Kelly - use violence and murder to put the plan in motion. But as much as things seem to be changing in the family's way of doing business, old habits and traditions remain and Nicholas must decide between his friends who helped him pull off the scam or his uncle Danny.
However there was one problem. Although we had been supplied with a DVD quality copy of the film to convert into the correct format for VOD, no-one was able to supply a good quality copy of the trailer for the film which is required by streaming sites to advertise the feature. IThe only copy of the trailer available was a very low-res web video, the but the quality was far too low.
So with the low quality trailer as a template, Stu has re-created a high quality copy of the original trailer. It was painstaking, searching through the 90 min film to find the large amount of 2-3 second cuts used in the 2min trailer to recreate it as closely as possible, but he achieved it and it looks great!
