    ::: IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY ON DVD :
    DON HERTZFELDT VOLUME TWO: 2006 - 2011 DVD

    don hertzfeldt dvd

    >> <<
    make click here
    Featuring EVERYTHING WILL BE OK, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, and IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY : with the option to play all three chapters of the story edited seamlessly together, as a feature film.

    All of the titles have been given a fresh 2012 remastering and cleaning, personally performed by Don for a very long time against his will.

    The DVD's special features include:

  • Over 40 minutes of interviews from the EVENING WITH DON HERTZFELDT TOUR
  • 2010 cartoon WISDOM TEETH, newly remastered
  • A little deleted scene from IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY
  • A 24 page booklet with new liner notes
  • The originally-released versions of the animated trilogy, as individual short films
  • Close-captions for the hearing impaired

    :::: NOTE: Do not hurl your old DVD singles of EVERYTHING WILL BE OK and I AM SO PROUD OF YOU into the sea just yet. Now years out of print, those discs will remain the only ones to feature the over-250 pages of unique notes and making-of materials from those films.

  • _____________________________________________________________________________________
