My attempt at a complete reconstruction of what was filmed on July 30, 1968 at Trident Studios, in the process of Hey Jude.Included is footage of a few takes and rehearsals, along with Paul teaching the song to George and footage shot in the control booth. Some of the clips are able to have real audio attached, while the rest I have either synced to a similar take, or simply dubbed over with audio in the case where there is no way for myself to sync it.
This is technically shorter in length than what HMC released, however my version simply removes the "excess"; repeated shots/clips. There are some moments which are silent unfortunately, as the available audio cuts off. However, most footage does have audio attached. Enjoy!

It includes Paul arriving to the studio, showing the song to the rest of the band and providing instructions (specifically to George). There is then footage of recording takes for the song. For some of the clips I have had to reuse outtakes that are not the same as the video due to unavailability of the proper take. However, there is real audio for part of Takes 7 and 9. There is also a version of St. Louis Blues, but sadly the audio cuts off. There is then footage of George Martin, George Harrison, and Geoff Emerick in the control booth while takes are being attempted. The rest of the band also appears in the booth to listen back to takes.
Ken Scott, not Geoff Emerick.
