A Man For All Seasons...
Forty years ago, my father appeared as an extra in A Man For All Seasons (which won 6 Oscars, but that's by the by). He appeared on screen for all of twenty-three nanoseconds, but has continually referred since to his brief flirtation with stardom.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, for his birthday this year, I've decided to make a special edition DVD of the movie. I've bought the original DVD and am proposing to rip it to .avi, then, using Premiere Pro, insert an additional credit at the beginning saying "And featuring a special guest appearance by...". I'll then author the resulting edited .avi back to DVD.
1. Does that sound feasible?
2. Any recommendations as to what to use to rip the DVD to .avi (needs to be freeware)
3. Any recommendations/observations about how to set about the process in Premiere Pro?
Depending on my time and inclination, I may do some editing of the scene in which he appears - possibly identifying the sequence of frames where he's visible and looping them a few times, and possibly annotating the screen with subtitles such as "Look out - I'm on soon" and "Here comes the best bit" and perhaps even some 'jabbing' arrows pointing at him on the screen. Again, anyone have any thoughts?
