I Can’t Tear Myself Away: 2006 Performance Source Video

This video of Lyn Byrd performing I Can’t Tear Myself Away from the 1998 West & Byrd album was shot in 2006 by Altemus, part of a project that Lyn & Altemus never completed.

The raw video had been rough edited, had color modification and effects applied and a small test was output at 15fps and at only 320 x 240 pixels. Immediately after this, the hard drive containing all the raw video and master files crashed and became unrecoverable as well as the backup hard drive, as a result it has never been completed.

Currently this version has been increased to 1920 x 1080 pixels, has had timing and syncing issues corrected and additional filters applied to smooth out compression artifacts. The goal is to combine it with additional footage and make a complete music video.
