|Why 20 year old news footage has such impact...
Some people have said, "I don't get it, this is suppose to be a "New" video, but it looks grainy and dated; what's
the big deal about some old Japanese news footage?".
Well, to appreciate the footage you have to truly understand the significance. First off, let me explain the use of
the word "new" as it pertains to the DVD. Obviously, by the footage, you can tell this is not "new", as in just
recently obtained. What is "new" is the explanation that goes along with the footage. You may have noticed that
the beginning of the sample clip says that reports about this water have been coming out of Japan since the
early 1990's. The footage that is included on the DVD is from that time frame. Not from today. Again, you have
to understand the significance of news footage and reports regarding this water from over 20 years ago.
This footage establishes the fact that this technology has been successfully used in Japan for DECADES! Could
we arrange to fly over to Japan and shoot some all new footage in HD? Of course we could. But would it have
as much impact as raw, un-staged footage of kids with skin issues that have cleared up or a guy that was able to
avoid having his leg amputated? I don't think so. The original hospital DVD was one of the most popular DVD's
because of the fact that it was not professionally produced with all the latest marketing flare and razzle dazzle.
This new version takes that same powerful footage and provides a whole new expanded explanation.
