Drowned World Tour Video Filter

Recommended Posts

Ruins whatever high frequency detail that was captured in the unfiltered video.

I don't know what happened there. At first I thought it was only my copy and wanted to return the DVD. 

Why oh why??? Did she look to haggard? I love the DWT and wish there were already smart phones around, at least we'd had some HD fan footage.

Yeah why is the picture quality on the DWT like it was taped in 1990 not 2001?

The HBO broadcast has no filtering on their footage. But for the DVD Madonna made sure to make the whole thing slightly less sharp and hazy.

This reminds me of the MDNA Tour Bluray fiasco.

So I wouldn't be surprised if it happened by accident.

Maybe she thought it was better to be less sharp so it would hide any imperfections with her face wasn't this at the time of HD?

There are no closeups of her for the broadcast and DVD version per her request.

same reason why she puts a ton of filters on everything she's filmed lately
to make her look younger

But still gave us one of her best vocal performances on tour. Loved the concepts, loved the costumes. Never really mind the setlist since I was a newbie by then, but her damn face looked so strange. I find it hard to locate that look after the gorgeous ROL Madonna and the one from the EMA in Stockholm :/

I think her look for the European leg was killer
sure it's not feminine or glamorous but it's edgy and so cool

the hair for the recorded US show was horrible though

The early European look with red skirt/ black top and straight hair was perfect.

The worst was this by miles

Compared to that ^ the hair on the DVD looks decent. I think she tried to look a little more feminine.

It was not shot in HD, they added some shit later 2 give it a filmsy look.

But she went full on Bowie 4 the DVD, which I appreciate

The DWT DVD hair discussions will never die. :lmao:

Imagine she released an edit of it with the same approach as MDNA/RH: different hairstyle, outfit every few seconds. We would have it all.

 

It's hilarious how so many of her concert releases have some iconic discussions about them.

WTG: Switching necklace and audience

BAT: Which taped show is the best?  Ponytail, curls or Poodledonna? Which vocals are the best? Is the full Paris show somewhere?

DWT: Wtf is that hair?

CT: Editing on steroids for 2007 standards, then came MDNA and RH and took it to another level

S&S: dubbing galore, where are the 2009 performances?

MDNA: How many (grainy) cuts do fit in one second 2.0 and did David Banda really record the audio for the DVD from behind the stage with his phone?

RH: Will Aldo Diaz be the graphic designer?

Really? I think it's the worst of them all. Makes her look real 'heavy set'. I like the black one from European leg best and wish it was on DVD.

Really?

I find it hard to believe the entire show was just pan shots of her and the stage without one single close up.
