Michael Golden is one of the most influential comic book artists of our time. His work on Bucky O'Hare, Dr. Strange, Micronauts, and The 'Nam is the stuff of legend. Now the producers of the Modern Masters book series take you behind the scenes and into his studio for a look at the creation of Tunuki, his latest and most personal project to date. Take a journey into the creative mind of one of comics' greats-Michael Golden-and witness a modern master in action! This 90-minute DVD provides an exclusive look at the artist at work, as he discusses the processes he undertakes to create a new comics series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Painful Review October 5, 2007
Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to this DVD very much. As a long time fan of Golden's work, this looked like a must have. To be honest, if you appreciate his work as much as I do, it still is.

What did I like about this DVD? Well, it is Golden being Golden. There weren't any really hard hitting discussions, but then, it didn't really need that. Golden explains his approach to work, his reasons for doing things the way he does, and why he feels his system works so well. He didn't sugar coat anything, but he didn't attack anyone either. The opportunities were there, but he took the high ground. This DVD was especially surprising, as Golden once stated he didn't do interviews. That is just about all this DVD is, a long interview. My one opportunity to meet Golden (25 years plus I think) he declined several interviews, but he did speak with the fans. He was open, honest and not afraid to say what he thought. Additionally he let me watch him draw all day, and that was the best art lesson I ever received, really. So, it was nice to see that the extras were him doing just that: drawing and talking.

Sounds great doesn't it? Here's where I tell the rest: The DVD was letterboxed. It seems like that would mean nice picture quality, but it didn't mean that. The resolution on this DVD is appalling. Even the DVD menu is pixilated. This made it very hard to watch as the one pixel thick rims of Golden's glasses were such extreme jaggies I couldn't take my eyes off of them. Additionally, they are shot from angles that seem inspired by the 60s Batman TV series. I guess that is to reinforce this is about comics, but I think anyone wishing to view this would be aware of that. Now we have the previously mentioned extras. Even in this resolution it is nice to see him draw.

2.0 out of 5 stars less in the studio and more in the editors chair October 15, 2007
Whilst what was on the DVD was mildly interesting, I think the makers have a cheek to call it in the studio with Michael Golden. There was no real discussion over his art and methods, and not much in the way of examples of his work. The packaging states that the running time is 90 minutes, The main interview was barely 30 minutes and he spent at least 10 minutes taling about editing comics.
Generally when running time is mentioned you expect that to cover the main feature and not to include all the Bonuses as well. these do not last 60 minutes unless my dvd clock is wrong. The bonus features are indeed of him drawing with some talk overlayed onto double speed photography. Given as the other reviewer has stated the low quality of the picture they could probably have done these in real time. I understand that Mr Golden does not do interviews often which is why I eagerly awaited this item, but he doesn't seem to have participated very fully and perhaps should not have agreed to the dvd if he did not want to be talkative. I was distinctly underwhelmed by it and if this is an indication of the quality of the other titles in the range then I will not be buying anymore and would advise other potential purchasers to approach with caution. If you want to have a better insight into Michael Golden then get the modern Masters book on Golden - which is great value and better serves the publisher and Golden than this DVD does

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Money! July 11, 2008
I just finished watching the entire, @ 77 minutes, Modern Masters; In The Studio With Michael Golden DVD and I must say that it was NOT worth the money! It does little justice to Golden's fans! I would not recommend this DVD to anyone! Why? 1) Bad quality - PIXELATION - NOT DVD quality! 2) It is mostly an Interview With Michael Golden and NOT what the title implies! 3) It is ONLY 30 Minutes (Main) and 47 Minutes (Extras), which by the way would have been the COOLest segment of the DVD were it not for the PIXELATION and the Double-Speed! a BAD DVD in all respects, production wise!

TwoMorrow Publishing: Come on guys! You could have done much, much better! I had plans to buy the entire line of the Modern Masters DVD series, but after this first purchase, I, unfortunately, will not!

To Michael Golden Fans:

Buy the the book, Modern Masters Volume 12: Michael Golden (Modern Masters (TwoMorrows Publishing)) (Paperback), instead - it is a book I have been waiting since I became a Michael Golden fan, in the early 80's.

1.0 out of 5 stars do not buy December 26, 2012
I wish I had researched this before buying. Agree with all the above comments so no point in reiterating them. A misleading package and an amateur effort, and shame on whoever made and is profiting from this DVD. I wouldn't even have bought it for 5$.
