16mm SPFX The Empire Strikes Back - Restoration?

Author
Time

I still have a 16mm copy of SPFX sitting in my cupboard. Given that the version on the blu ray hasn't been cleaned up, I wondered if anyone would consider this as a litte (big) project?

The film itself is in reasonable quality. I've never screened it but it looks ok to the naked eye. There is some discolouration, the film looks fairly purple.

Let me know what you think.

You might want to talk to Puggo about this. ;)

Are there any clips from Mary Poppins or The Black Hole present? They were cut from the video release.

EDIT:Nevermind. Missed the part where you said you haven't screened it...

Where were you in '77?

This is probably my favourite of these old documentaries. A HD transfer (maybe even colour-corrected by Adywan?) would be amazing

I have scanned an also-purple copy - haven't finished the restoration - but it is missing the two scenes that Silverwook mentioned.  If it has those two scenes, I would be very interested in scanning it.

I've never screened it, so I'm not sure if it has those scenes missing or not!

I'd be happy to do a HD scan of it.

That would be amazing. Where are you based?
