Reel to Reel: New York Ninja
We got to work on an incredibly interesting project with our friends at Vinegar Syndrome. New York Ninja is a wild action comedy originally directed by and starring John Liu in 1984. The project was abandoned during production resulting in all original sound materials, scripts and treatments going missing. The rights and unedited original negative were subsequently acquired by Vinegar Syndrome, who, through the efforts of CT filmmaker Kurtis Spieler, have meticulously constructed and completed the film.
To preserve the integrity of the film's audio, Factory Underground's Dan Walter converted the audio to tape, and then back to digital.
"It was great getting the opportunity to work on such a unique post production project. Always fun working with tape." - Dan Walter
