We’ve restored many videos for our clients who are actors, musicians and filmmakers. Here is a case study about a video restoration project.

windy-wagner-client-ac-media-servicesWindy Wagner is one of Hollywood’s leading session vocalists, appearing on songs for top recording artists including Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Michael Bublé, Barbra Streisand, K.D. Lang and Diana Ross. She has sung on more than 400 songs for the hit FOX television show Glee, it’s albums, motion pictures including Rock of Ages, Pitch Perfect, New Year’s Eve and The Jungle Book 2.

Her work in television commercials, includes Barbie (100 spots), Polly Pocket (50 spots), Disney, Coke, Macy’s, Folgers, Kmart, Hanes, Dell Computers, Disneyland, Lexus, Walmart, Chevrolet, Tropicana, Dove and many more brands. Windy performed the vocals on the new Disney’s Frozen – Crystal Kingdom Vanity commercial.

CHALLENGE

The video source file available for the new Disney’s Frozen – Crystal Kingdom Vanity commercial that Windy sings on contained an audio clipping at the beginning of the commercial, the audio levels were low, black spacing and digital edges around the video file.

SOLUTION

We cropped the video file to match the proper frame size, removed the audio clipping in the beginning of the video, added a quick fade in and fade out and increased the volume on the video. The restored video of the commercial is now available on Windy Wagner’s website that I designed and maintain for her: windywagner.com
