If anyone is wondering why there is a ‘Star Wars Preservation : Laserdisc sources’ section…

Many years ago, when the ot•com first started there were… considerable efforts by some members of the site to provide a quality fan-made release of the unaltered Original Trilogy on a dvd format (for free of course). The best quality source at that time were Laserdisc captures - hence this section…

Back then, few people had dvd writers, broadband internet, or hard drives large enough to store the films on, and there were very few file-hosting sites capable of storing such large files. Torrent sites were still in their infancy (and so slow)… so a Pay-It-Forward system, via postal services, was the usual means of distributing many fan-made Star Wars projects - all across the world.

Obviously since then, a lot has changed…

Absolutely mate - my apologies for missing them out.

(It was bit of a haze at times compiling it - so there may be a few more quality edits, projects or worthy threads missing…)
 

If anyone has a project, edit or thread etc they would like added to this, then please post it below - thank you 😃

 


 

Harmy has put up a video on youtube - just to remind everyone that Fan Edits must never be bought or sold.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrwKZHv4OS0

 

Personally, as a member here, I’d encourage everyone to watch it and upvote that video.

 


 

Our likely best hope of a professionally done restoration for a 4K theatrical version of the Original Trilogy probably lies here - with poita’s superb The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints ongoing project.

Solely as a member here, I’d recommend anyone & everyone to have a look through the above thread, and if anyone feels like doing so, make a donation (no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’) - to contribute to help bring about something that many of us here, if not near-on all of us on this site, want to see come to fruition.
