Full-frame ‘Timecode’ bows on vid

First take featured on DVD special edition

In a rare, if not unprecedented situation, the theatrical version of the unique four-screen digital film “Timecode” was cropped to fit movie theater screens, meaning that its first full-frame presentation will be on homevideo and DVD.

Columbia TriStar Home Video’s full-screen presentation of the movie on both DVD and VHS Oct. 10 will allow viewers for the first time to see the full frame of each of the four films running simultaneously in a quadruple-split screen.

Moviegoers saw an image that was cropped vertically for the 1.85:1 widescreen theater screen presentation.

The 97-minute movie features four different films that were shot simultaneously in a single take with handheld digital cameras in different locations around Los Angeles. Because each take ran about 97 minutes with no editing, director Mike Figgis shot 15 entire movies, with each movie featuring dramatically different performances and even different actors.

The DVD special edition will also feature the unrated feature-length first take. Figgis provides commentary during both films.
