DIY commentary tracks

Something Jefty said about commentary tracks on DVD another thread made me think: .....

"And I felt the lack of one most keenly on Kings Row. ......maybe I'll record my own commentary track!"

Is there any way that we film fans/buffs could actually do this? Maybe watching a favourite DVD while recording an audio track ourselves, then transferring it into a mp3 file and sending it out, so other people with the same DVD could replay it alongside the film?
Only a thought....

It's certainly possible - take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_c...D_commentaries

I've never listened to any of these, by the way (and none seem to fall within the Classic remit anyway) but if anyone recommends them, let us know.

Never knew about this - so much for me thinking I had discovered something!
Thanks for the information!

I've heard good things about the Mike Nelson commentaries. Not mentioned there, but still of interest - Mike Mackenzie (who often posts here) has an MP3 commentary track for Suspiria (1977) in both PAL and NTSC formats at his site.

Personally I couldn't think of enough to say for an entire film, but I am working on some youtube mini-documentaries for a couple of films/genres that I'm sure you'll hear more about when I am done.
