New York City in 1993 in HD - DTheater DVHS Demo Tape

In 2002 D-Theater launched in the US - the dealers needed a demo tape of HD footage. JVC reused some HD video that had been shot as a demo for the Japanese HD market back in 1993.

This footage would have most likely been originally used for a HiVision MUSE demo (an HD Broadcast, Tape &  Laserdisc format).

You can determine that the year is 1993 by the adverts in Times Square - The Radio 501 CD that's advertised on a billboard came out in 1993 and Paper Moon is playing at the Marquis Theater.

For those wondering what HD video camera tech existed in 1993 -  there are a few options, but it's likely that this footage was shot with a HDVS camera- perhaps a Sony SONY HDC-500 attached to a HDV-10 portable recorder which recorded on UniHi 3/4" tape.

Thor: Ragnarok's Director Breaks Down a Fight Scene | Notes on a Scene

In this episode of "Notes on a Scene," Taika Waititi, the director of "Thor: Ragnarok" breaks down a scene between Thor and Loki, played by Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. Taika explains the challenge of comedy versus action, the character arc over the three Thor movies, and the symbolism hidden in small actions. Also, see Thor's new haircut...

An idiosyncratic, somewhat fledgling director being handed the reins of one of Marvel’s big light shows can, in a way, feel like a triumph. A budding auteur has gotten the summons from Hollywood—a major career boost for them, sure. But also it’s good for us; it means our superhero movies—which are just a part of life now, and we must accept them—will be better, crafted by more thoughtful hands than some paycheck-mad, blow-’em-up hack’s. Everybody wins!
