We have the opportunity to borrow and scan a Cinderella IB Technicolor print in the US.
The cost of scanning this is $370. Total scanning costs are about $600. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you guys that’s a bargain, we don’t have to purchase, rent, or even ship the print.
And, the print is in EXCELLENT CONDITION. Probably better condition than my print. And, unlike mine, it can be scanned as soon as NEXT WEEK!
As some of you know I have a print as well and it can be scanned in the future. But this is a limited opportunity to get a print that’s in top condition scanned, and that may end up making scanning mine (which will cost more) unnecessary.
And more great news, after this is scanned we can rent Lady and the Tramp from the same source for scanning. And after that is scanned we can rent Sleeping Beauty too. And more!
Begin your pledges/donations, please!

An exclusive early release will be made available to donors, hopefully followed by a wider “myspleen” release at some point later this year/early next year.
Short test scan done on the first couple of minutes of Reel 1:
It’s heavily compressed, but hopefully shows the condition the print is in. Remember that heads and tails of reels are where most of the wear usually is.
Cinderella is a two-phase project. Only donors will be given access to the phase 1 release.
- The borrowed print will be scanned.
