Hi! I heard about the site years ago after watching the Despecialized Editions, and while I’ve always been interested in film preservation and fanedits I have only recently decided to dip my toes into those waters myself.

I’m currently working on my first fanedits, starting with a Donnie Darko project as well as an ongoing effort to create versions of movies with vomiting scenes removed, so that my partner who has a violent negative reaction to such material can watch and enjoy them with me. I’m tackling Booksmart and Knives Out to begin with.

This seems like a really cool site and a community of people I’d like to be a part of!

Hi there,

I’ve lurked on this board before to read up on all the impressive work being done. Now I’m taking the plunge to at least sign up and request a couple of projects that folks have been working on. Look forward to being at least a minor part of this community as I’m committed to chiming in when I can!

Thanks to all who have done the hard work of preservation and restoration here.

Hello there,

Long time reader of these forums, decided to finally create an account.

I love what this community does, particularly the preservation projects unrelated to Star Wars (although obviously I am a big fan of DEED and 4K77). Looking forward to following ongoing projects more closely, and possibly make a few cheeky requests for some where I can…

Best wishes, and Happy Holidays!

Orbis non sufficit.

Hello World!

I’m in Shanghai for more than 20 years now, and just realized an old dream: project the movies i like in a cinema.

i had the chance to get a 68 seat cinema room for a private projection of a french comedy few weeks ago that we couldn’t watch as we are stuck there because of Covid19.

Now i won’t stop here, and planning to project classics and movies that will never cross the chinese censorship/frontier. (No i don’t risk anything, they don’t really care of what we do privately between foreigners).

Anyway, i’m a big SF fan and of course Star Wars is on my top projection list along with Alien, Blade Runner, 2001 Space odyssey… you name it!

All those old movies we were too young (or not even born) to watch in Cinema!

I know the guy behind imperialboots and the 501e of Shanghai is working with me for blood donation drive. They are all ready to jump in their armors to watch the first trilogy in a cinema.

The cinema i found even tho is a real cinema room, all i can get is an HDMI cable to plug my laptop, for 1080p projection and stereo sound, i do not have the possibility to make full use of the whole equipment they have and that can only be used with legit media. Better than nothing!

I was thinking to project the despecialized version, but then a friend in HK talked to me about the 4k77 and all the work done to restore the original movie, so here i am!

The idea to have a projection that could get as close as possible as the original version is really thrilling! that’s exactly the kind of feeling i want to get! like getting into a british phonebooth and going back in time to be there at it’s first screening!

It is really great what you are doing guys! It make me think of all those movies made by Georges Méliès (another Georges doing SF hehe!) and that are only just mentioned in articles but nowhere to be seen ever again. His “trip to the moon” flims were believed to be lost for good but then retrieved and restored few years ago.

Hi there. Sorry for the inevitable redundancy with other posts in this topic, but I really feel I should drop a few lines about myself before I do anything else.

I have been following Preservation Projects of the Original Trilogy for about 14-15 years now (it all started when I somehow stumbled upon Moth3r’s Laserdisc transfers)… and I really enjoy watching FanEdits, mostly of all the Star Wars movies that aren’t the Original Trilogy (I guess I’ve done that for at least 11 years now). I have been amazed and thankful for all the work and care that have gone into both of these endeavors - and even though I’ve stopped by this place very often to find info and insight on many of the projects that I found interesting, I always put off signing up. I much appreciate the exitance of this site and the people on here… so I’ll try to jump in to support the community every once in a while – and hope this won’t remain my only post (don’t quote Yoda now, please).

Hi everybody, I’ve been visiting this page for a while to read threads about fan projects and unaltered ot news and now I decided to create an account to be up to date on new stuff that comes out !!

I’ve been a sw fan since I can remember, I grew up on the 2004 DVD editions with the cgi Jabba and the greedo shooting first cantina scene but now that I’m older I prefer the unaltered original thing. I’ve always liked analog formats, film prints and old tech too so I’m also interested in the TN1’s 4KXX projects and the process behing it.

Of course I’ve always wanted to see the “Lost Cut”, don’t know if that’s a lost cause or not, we’ll see…
