Hey what’s the latest update on this?
Hello I found this forum after watching Attack of the Clones recently and doing research on 35mm prints. Unfortunately from what I can gather, poita, who owns the reels, became gravely ill following his exposure to toxic compounds on a print of The Phantom Menace. I am very worried for him as his account has not posted since October. Poita, if you are reading this, I am very passionate about this movie and would be glad to contribute money to your effort to have the reels cleaned and scanned in 4k. It is my intention to cut a noir-detective movie “Gumshoe Obi-Wan” utilizing this scan when it is completed.
I sincerely wish you recovery from that damned Phantom Menace toxin and I hope to be in contact with you in the future.
