I want my money back!
Not sure if you guys are aware or not, but the contrast on the screen at the Whistler show was way, way, way off. Either that or you guys shot the movie with camera's from the 60's.
It really sucked to watch and I almost walked out. Skiers looked like black dots on a big white screen. Whomever was in charge of setting up the technology totally flailed on that one. If you doubt what I say, give Ian Mac or the Doglotion guys a call and see what they thought about it.
Send me a T-Shirt and we'll call it even.

Yea the Bozeman show sucked equally. Watched the MSP show last night on the same projector and the "emerson projector sucks" argument is a load of crap.

yea the first whistler show was a joke in terms of quality. Powder segments were all whited out, and the park stuff you couldn't even see the jumps.
i think it was ian mac (not sure), took the mike at the end and said something to the effect of "sorry about the contrast, we'll get that fixed next show.... right?", but who goes to see the same thing twice during one night.
anyway, it really took away from the movie. It very well could have been the theater, as I'm sure tgr has figured out the filming in snow stuff at this point, but it was still disappointing.

^not the theatre. MSP show looked incredible with full on HD a few weeks ago. Maybe it's a byproduct of trying to shoot in 3d and completely failing.

Whistler skier complaining about poor viz and white out.
Oh the delicious irony.

They had to restart the deeper premier in Truckee because the audio wasn't synced with the video.... sounds like TGR needs to train their premier techsBest Skier on the Mountain

When I got my Deeper movie on DVD, I was surprised to see things I missed on the crappy big screen. This thread made me think about it.
Funny, generally Todd is right in on stuff like this.

This is making me second-guess buying tickets...
A little reassurance?

Welcome to almost every single TGR NYC show ever. They seem to deliberately pick venues with no place to show a movie, and then project it onto some curved wall in the middle of a dance club. Teh suck.[quote][//quote]

Hey guys, Sorry to hear this. This is the same promoter we have used in the past and have not had issues with them running this show. We will be taking this into account for the Whistler shows next year. As for the 3D, we are not showing it at all venues. Some venues are not capable of displaying 3D, this is one of them. The promoter had some press that had indicated this was a 3D show. Sorry about that. It was never supposed to be. You can check individual event pages to learn more about that.
Also, there is more info on Tour 3D here:
If you have further questions about the DVD 3D world, you can learn more here:
If you get a chance to see the real 3D stuff it is pretty cool. Most people have been stoked on it.
Sorry to here the first show was blown out. It is disheartening to here this after all the work that went into the film."Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!!! What a ride!"
"We been runnin' these goddam hills for dang near, huh?"
