High-er quality sources of Als music videos

Hi Bermuda, recently I started doing restorations of Als music videos but I have stumbled upon one problem - the terrible quality of some of them.

Fat, Eat it, Amish Paradise, smells like nirvana and jurrasic park were all filmed on film, meaning they have much higher quality than current scans available on youtube and Weird al ultimate video collection

So do you own any better sources

Looking back, it seems like most of the clips were filmed on film with exceptions being ricky, i love rocky road, beverly hillbillies and parts of this is the life

I don't have the originals of any of the videos, the best versions available are from the recent DVD compilations.

Do you know where the film reels could possible be.

as of now only the videotaped mvs can peak in quality (and those don't look great at all) Image

Al has a bunch of stuff stored in a climate-controlled vault, or Sony might have it somewhere.

Also can you recommend to al to not accept any of Universal Music Groups so called "remasters" which don't involve scanning the film, since they other times either look terrible (https://youtu.be/CkysCJBdGtw?t=291) or have no noticeable difference at all (https://i.imgur.com/cbqVtMG.png)

Assuming that re-issuing videos is even a consideration, I'm confident that Al is tech-savvy enough to make the right decisions.
