Beatles doc has me wondering: Any updates on that Netflix Prince documentary?

I watched all 9 hours of "Get Back" the Peter Jackson edit of the footage from the Beatles' Let It Be Sessions, and it was pretty great. It got me thinking about that Netflix series that was supposed to happen using footage from Prince's vault. That's got to still be happening, right? I know it's gone through at least 2 directors, but haven't heard anything for some time.

Anyone have any updates on the Prince Netflix series/documentary thing?

No.
It talks about the documentary and inside info from post #38 on.

So to summarise, there is informed speculation that the documentary is still going ahead, but , since the name of the new director for the project was leaked (last year?) no more is known.

But we don't have WETA. If you've seen what Jackson is doing with footage way older than Prince's career, you would want someone like Peter Jackson to be an obsessed Prince fan.

I hope the Prince doc is like the Peter Jackson one, not just a bunch of taking heads talking about how cool it was when purple rain came out (like those spike Lee MJ docs)

Didn't David Z. mention that he edited the audio/video of the First Avenue august 3rd 1983 show, some time ago for Netflix? (I thought this show/documentary was sold to Apple tho)

The craziest thing bout the Jackson doc is how they hired a sound company to separate mono audio!!!

That is not crazy.

In the prince world this archival guy or the drummer would do that.

In the MJ world they hired a few professionals.

Not so 'brand new' but it's a nice upgrade.

Guess you don't know much about audio.
And what does MJ have to do with this?

I never claimed I know much about audio.

I expressly do not have golden ears or anything close.

I play no real musical instrumnets, have no feeling for rhythm.

So please do not go there, you will fail.

Hiring pro's for seemingly mundane tasks (depending on actually what they did) is the better thing.

See the PR remaster disaster vs the 1999 (and others) remasters.

lol
it was just a guess and I never claimed you did know anyting about your nonsensical golden ears or your irrelevant musical skills, so your incoherent and irrelevant rant is, as usual with your posts, unnecesary and has no use is this topic.
Instead of ranting about nothing how about answering the question?

It was not meant to be funny but to be factual.

You cannot discern?

You are gettign way offtopic, BTW.

.

Sure, do you ever read my posts?

.

and I never claimed you did know anyting about your nonsensical golden ears or your irrelevant musical skills,

.

You gessed first. I cleared up the confusion.

Still not satisfied?

Please go away.

.

so your incoherent and irrelevant rant is,

.

What is incoherent?

I sense an urge for information and I provide ifnormation.

Is that strange to you?

Or do you even accept all I write as true?

.

as usual with your posts, unnecesary and has no use is this topic.

.

Who guessed about my audio knwledge first?

.

Instead of ranting about nothing how about answering the question?

.

If you cannot connect MJ to this situation despite my clarification then I would like to know what you are sniffing or drinking.

Please go away because you cannot saty on topic.

.

If you cannot sense the difference between how Prince did it (facts!), how others (e.g. MJ) did it, and how the Estate can do it then you are way out of place here.

Please go away.

lol more ranting.
Just admit that you had no clue what this topic was about (and didn't even read it) and jumped to the conclussion that the 'Jackson' mentioned was Michael Jackson and not Peter Jackson.
And if you can't explain something in laymen terms then that means you don't even understand what you're claiming.
But you be you lol

If you call this a rant you did never see a rant.

.

.

That is your conclusion, not mine.

.

(and didn't even read it) and jumped to the conclussion that the 'Jackson' mentioned was Michael Jackson and not Peter Jackson.

.

You assume wrong.

I mentioned MJ because that was a big name in the industry and thus reason to compare.

If you cannot make that mega jump then yopu do not belong here.

.

And if you can't explain something in laymen terms

.

If this 'rant' of mine is already too complicated then you do not belong here.

.

then that means you don't even understand what you're claiming.

.

Your conclusion. Not mine. No please go away.

Complete bullshit and you know it. Stop trying to cover your mistake/digging yourself even deeper.
There;s no harm in admitting you were wrong.
And this is not your site so who do you think you are telling people to 'go away'?
You have nothing here to add than nonsense, but your wannabe 'Bart act' is quite amusing to laugh at.

Admitting a wrong where?

You do not follow the arguments, as you wrote.

You do not point out what is wrong.

And we did not agree about wrong or right anyway.

So you are uttering nonsese, as always, without real direction or goal.

All the while it is still offtopic and not making the experience for the rest of the org nicer.

You're acting like a troll.

Trolls should not be fed but stamped flat until they do not move anymore.

Learn to read you funny little man.
You're the one who took it offtopic by mistaking Peter Jackson for Michael Jackson lol

I may act like a troll to you, but you clearly are one.
