This started out as just a simple remaster, but since a few big things changed, it's a different animal than the original. My first version of Hands Down was made before I learned a lot about video quality, so the quality of the footage is far above the original. I also had more dvds of the series than previously, and had watched the entire series, so I was able to use footage from later episodes and fill out a few scenes I struggled with in the original.
For the most part, the scenes in the video are the same, but have been tweaked a bit. I changed a lot of the transitions, but only some of you might notice the difference. I worked a bit harder on the lip syncs, as I felt they added a lot to the original video and wanted them to be a little more solid. I realize by now this song has probably been overplayed on the radio, and some people may be sick of it, but it was fun when I first heard it, and I think it's still a great song and I can't listen to it now without thinking about Onegai Teacher. lol.
