Update on Eyes Wide Shut 35mm Print-

The Film has been scanned and is being sent to me and an early collaborator soon. Unfortunately, the scan turned out to be 1.85:1, not 1.33:1. Although, I looked at a preview of the scan and the colors, grain and all look truly beautiful. This project was a bit more expensive than I expected, though.

The total costs of obtaining the reels, scanning, shipping, drives etc. was around $962.

Where is your physical print at the moment? Could you send me a private message please, if you can let me know how/where it was scanned (in private) and if we can see a preview of the scan it’d be possible to decide if it’s worth doing a re-scan.

@gweedo16 as one of the original donors, definitely think a preview of the original scan should be released to donors (as is customary), even as-is.

Understand it was completed, no worries if it’s grindhouse-y. As said, I’m happy to help you with managing the raw files if you need support.

And if something went wrong with the original scan, then definitely think considering a rescan as offered above makes sense

Do the other doners have contact with the gweedo16 ? I sent him two meassages the last two months and no answer …

@Garidaki I’m a fellow donor as well. I’ve had confirmation that the print was scanned by the team in Europe, but gweedo16 still needs to pass along files to donors.

As mentioned, I can help with the DNGs (raw scan files) if need be.

I’ve been in touch with the encoder of the EYES WIDE SHUT project, and encoding has been complete for sometime, with an encode provided to gweedo16 in December 2021.

Any donors to this project should PM me with a screenshot of their donation! I’ve already reached out to some of you in this thread, but let me know if there’s anyone I’ve missed.

I’m very interested to see where this goes. EWS is a fantastic film and a new scan of an uncensored film print would be great.
Question: what quality was the print scanned at" 4K? 2k?
Cheers, have a great day

Unfortunately, I cannot donate at the moment. But if you need any help cleaning up some frames, it would be an honour to help restore this great film. I’ve worked on restoring frames before. currently, I am restoring a 16mm trailer for Pink Flamingos.

if you want to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to Private message me, as I would love to help with this project!
cheers, have a great day!
