Today I have uploaded a brand new Babelcolour video - the second instalment of

my old 2009 Misinformation Guide. I hope it brings a smile to your hearts,

12 October 2016

 

After a short hiatus I have re-materialised to upload a new YouTube video.

It is a short hand-colourised trailer for the 1966 Doctor Who serial 'Power of the Daleks'

which is missing from the BBC film archive but has been re-animated for DVD release

later this year. The short trailer utilises some colourised fragments of surviving footage.

I have added a new feature to the website: The Babelcolour Back Catalogue.

The project catalogues all 124 Babelcolour videos produced over the last decade, including the 55 which are no longer available to view on YouTube.

The tables arrange the titles chronologically, with upload date and availability status. 

The page links to those videos which remain live and offers visual material for deleted works.

The project is still on-going but substantially complete.

Something a little out of the ordinary -

I have recorded my first voice-over work for a non-Babelcolour production!

I provided the opening narration for a 2016 animated short by Mert Karaca entitled 'Kahraman'

 

01 June 2016

I have now completed the 75th colourised shot for my forthcoming on-line video.

The project entails the colourisation of clips from all 134 Hartnell episodes, meaning 59 sequence remain outstanding.

The process is labour-intensive without the use of motion estimation software, but the end is now in sight!

12 May 2016

Work is progressing on the new Babelcolour video, entitled 'Every Hartnell Episode In Colour', which is due to be uploaded later in the year. Of the 134 episodes to be represented, 65 individual video sequences have now been completed, leaving 69 still to do. Episodes currently missing from the BBC Archives will be represented using video sequences from adjacent, surviving episodes. For those that have no extant footage remaining they will be recreated using animated and colourised stills.

The Babelcolour Twitter Channel has come to a close. It will be retained but left dormant. After several years on the social media site I have decided my energies would be better placed splitting updates between my website page here and the Babelcolour Fan Page on Facebook.

I am currently working an on a brand new video project, entitled 'Every William Hartnell Episode In Colour'. 

It is a compendium of 134 colourised episodes chronicling the First Doctor's tenure from 'An Unearthly Child' in 1963 to 'The Tenth Planet' in 1966.
