unicrayon's notes:
The original footage looked dull, washed out, lined and was a long way from the action as the camera was set at the back of the hall. I ran a few color corrections, tests and stuff and decided that because there was such an empty space above and below in the 4:3 format, that I may as well color correct, edit and resize it for a widescreen presentation.
This gave me the chance to convert the audio to WAV, normalize and perform some tidying fades.
Unknown generation.
