When is a DVD not a DVD? Well, when it’s a DVD that’s a live concert. Even though I’m watching it, it’s playing in my DVD player, and it’s basically a video, it’s still a concert. Which is what I just watched, the DVD of Neal Morse Testimony Two Live in Los Angeles, 2 discs of it in fact. Because it is just a concert that’s been recorded there’s not much to the DVD. Nothing special happens to make this DVD stand out over some of the many concerts that I’ve watched on DVD. In fact it’s pretty boring with it’s set up and camera work. At best there are moments when the editing tried to liven up the look and flow of the DVD by doing a split screen. Having a split screen though leads to trouble when trying to fit both camera angles onto one screen the editor had to shrink down the size of both camera angles. That leaves the picture smaller with empty space at the top and bottom of the screen.
