New 16 x 9 Formats of Thomas Brin Available

To see Thomas Brin in action, visit the official movie site at: The Adventures of Thomas Brin

Are you a fan of the wonderful world of Thomas Brin but wondered why our actor's seem a little squished? Well, that is because they were. The Adventures of Thomas Brin is shot in high definition using a Sony HDR Z1U HDV video camera. It captures true 16 x 9 video images. However, when we encoded the online and iPod versions of the Thomas Brin, they were mistakenly encoded as 4 x 3 video.

We have corrected our error, thanks to an astute viewer's comments (Thanks, Claude!). So, if you have subscribed to the iPod version of Thomas Brin please delete the old Thomas Brin files from your iTunes Library and then visit the iTunes Music Store and resubscribe to The Adventures of Thomas Brin video podcast.

Or, if you simply watch Thomas Brin through the website, please return to our website and watch the first two episodes in their proper aspect ratio--it really makes a difference!

Please note, for viewers who do not have QuickTime 7 and watch the MP4 version, the movie will still show as 16 x 9 but in a letterboxed frame.

Thank you for watching and please continue to spread the word about Thomas Brin.
