Hi Skippy!

I’ll add grain (using a proper original grain scanned in 4K) at the end of the process.
The complete project contains :

  • rebuilding/rotoscoping missing/changed BR scenes :
    • original logo and crawl (1 scene)
    • jedi speed effect (2 scenes)
    • Gunray and Haako looking at Jedi’s escape (2 scenes)
    • invasion of Naboo (first scene above the planet - previously undetected change) (1 scene)
    • hand of Fode and Beed (1 scene)
    • missing podrace scenes (2 scenes)
    • arrival on Coruscant (3 scenes)
    • human cameo in the Senate (1 scene)
    • Theed bridge (1 scene)
    • original Yoda (all scenes with Yoda)
    • misc corrections and missing frames (ex : first frame of first scene)
  • original cut in full HD
  • new DTS source directly from theatrical CD-ROM + original Dolby 6.1 track
  • original colors (regraded on a scene by scene basis)
  • original alien subtitles (recreated from 35mm scan)
  • original grain
  • original ratio (based on 35 mm scan : 806x1920 instead of 820x1920)
  • original theatrical cropping (based on theatrical bootlegs)

If I have enough time:

  • lot of bonuses (theatrical advertising and trailers, George’s masterclass, making of)
  • BR authoring
  • several versions (23.976p vs 24p, with or without alien subtitles).

Trillary Dump is also involved in this project (for the original artwork, maybe the making of, and some finds of valuable sources).
