i think Jambe Davdar aka Jamie Benning would be a great help with this.
maybe he is the biggest fan with incredible knowledge of star wars.
Do you think he could be interested in this project? If so, please contact him.
that sounds good…😃
but i´m only a help with the OT (thats always the best parts) 😃.
Always a precious help. Indeed, it seems (almost) nobody loves the prequels, but hey, we are on OriginalTrilogy after all! 😄

The “Russian anonymous” is called “martokc”, and can you please add me there? I gave you the info on the Russian Extended Editions. Also, you misspelled Adywan’s name.
Added and corrected, thanks!
About his versions: they are just one of the many “options” I have received for the OT - the others from benduwan, pittrek, darth_ender - so I have to study them all (literally) and decide where to put a certain scene; for example, in one a given scene is put here, in another there… which is the “right” one? I must admit it’s a question much easier to answer IMHO than “which is the right color grading?” 😄
For other episodes: I have watched EP 7 just once (shame on me!) but I HAVE to watch it again (and again); for now, I’m using martokc’s version for guidelines; for EP 1 2 3, I’m following ADigitalMan, but I have to decide where to put further scenes/shots - in particular, there are A LOT of small shots found on trailers to put back in the movies…
About OT two versions: I thought also of this possibility; but, as I wrote before, I thought to use BD as main version, and replace most offending scenes with GOUT ones, because, I think, there are some nice corrections made during the years, in 1997SE, 2004 and 2011 - but not many others; to make a “proper” version is beyond the mission of this project. The fact that there will be different versions of this project is still uncertain, but plausible.
A question for everybody: what do you think about the idea of using RaiTre color grading as reference for the OT version? http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Star-Wars-color-grading-thoughts/id/52432#1018988
Final version will have better colors, less dull and more vibrant, and improved contrast and brightness; as alternative, I thought about GOUT, slightly corrected. For EP 1 2 3, just a slight correction to get rid of pink blanket; for EP 7, I thought to reduce teal&orange.
