No longer doing the project.

Update: 16/01/2021 - I have decided the upfront financial cost of potentially going it alone and little-to-no response is reason to cancel the project. Perhaps it’ll be relisted and people decide they want to do it later.

I have just come across what appears to be a Super 35mm print of Funny People. The print looks like it’s in very good condition and this is one of my favourite Judd Apatow films. It also features fellow Aussie Eric Bana being is amazing self on screen.

I wish to take pledges now and collect money once we’ve figured out the total costs. The print is for auction on eBay so the final cost is unclear, but it’s currently sitting at £350 with no bids, plus approx £150 shipping to Australia. My preferred donation method will be PayPal because I’m unfamiliar with cryptocurrencies.

I should be able to win it but it’s going to expire in 30 hours I’ll have to get quotes for scanning next week. If anyone can recommend a scanner in Melbourne, Australia that would be appreciated so that it keeps costs lower.

Below are images I’ve included with the blu-ray frame outlined over the print to show how much has been cropped out.
