SOLD: The Wire DVD Boxset

Recommended Posts

Item: The Wire DVD Boxset

Location: Mollymook, 2539, NSW

Price: $10 + Postage at buyers cost

Item Condition: Very good

Reason for selling: Downsizing DVD collection

Payment Method: Bank Transfer, PayPal (buyer's expense), Postage

Extra Info: I had the choice between Blu-ray and DVD but went for the DVD because that was the intended 4:3 frame they shot it.

On Bluray it was reframed at 16:9 meaning that the intended emotional isn't conveyed as well such as zooming in on a character's face is lost as parts of the set that weren't meant to be included are, also set props that aren't meant to be in shot are.

Also when TV went to HD they intentionally kept it in a 4:3 frame even after the original cinematographer passed away to keep the same continuity throughout the series.

There's an article by David Simon that explains this: http://davidsimon.com/the-wire-hd-with-videos/IMG_20190710_081654.jpegIMG_20190710_081703.jpegIMG_20190710_081659.jpegIMG_20190710_081720.jpeg

would love to have it -- it's been on my list for ages and this really is the way to see it (4:3 aspect ratio)
