Did you guys make any changes from the live show?

Very minor. We cleaned up a couple of bits here and there where we felt it was dragging, and we also used my handy new gap-eliminating process to fill in a couple of the small holes that were still hanging around in the script (just stuff in the 25-40 second range).

So for those of you who were at the live show, you should recognize pretty much all of the material you've already seen and loved, plus a few more new jokes tossed in for good measure. :)

I will also warn that we did a good bit of improvising during the live show and nobody really wrote it down. I think a couple of jokes that we threw in on the fly might have made it in for the recording.

We're discussing recording the live shows either for notetaking or to just release as its own thing, not sure yet. Maybe listening to it with a "live studio audience" makes the experience a bit different, not sure.

So there's a way to do that legally? Coo.

Recording the audio in the booth of what comes through the mics they are wearing, yes. Recording the whole thing with sound from the movie, probably not. Video cameras, absolutely not. ;)

They'd have to be really careful not to pick up the audio from the movie.

Not to nitpick, but I've heard commentaries (unofficial) where you can still hear the movie in the background. Now, obviously you don't want to release something that's absolutely blaring because you wouldn't be able to use it as a commentary track, since you would get an annoying echo effect. But even if the whole thing is a little bit audible, I doubt anyone would sue over it. It's no substitute for being tortured directly by the movie. I'm sure it's possible to "duck" the audio recorded through the microphones at the live show, as no mic would be good enough to get really a loud signal from the movie.

Would it sync though?

I didn"t mean legally.  The synching would have double audio from the movie and would have to be dead on or have a strange echo to it.

Somebody else said legally. I mentioned the echo too. It probably would not be too audible.

If you have a mic that's geared to pick up the audience separately from the performers, it isn't THAT difficult to filter out the background noise of the movie almost completely.

Speed is quasi-edited and a free link to a preview version will be sent out to writers on Tuesday. It would be earlier, but my internet connection at home isn't being installed until then.

Please keep in mind that we intend to sell this riff soon, and to please keep file sharing to an absolute minimum. We, like Rifftrax, are keeping our files DRM-free for your convenience.

And by "to a minimum," Chris means, "Please don't make James come stab you in the jaw." :)

As someone who enjoys being stabbed in the jaw,  I'm afraid I don't understand the question.

I don't accept invites to sleep overs from Raven anymore.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to re-visiting Speed.

24 Hour delay.... my mixer board is still in a box somewhere. Didn't finish building my new computer desk last night.

Almost there.... (stay on target!)
