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.

I am just a simple man making my way through the universe.

Poita’s account was active three days ago, though you’re right that he hasn’t posted since October.

He’s a busy guy and has had his share of health problems completely unrelated to the TPM print as well, so I don’t think that incident is the cause of the radio silence. Though other health concerns sadly aren’t outside the realm of possibility.

I got over the damn prequel poisoning, but then moved house to another city (which was a big move) and had some family crises that put everything else on hold for a while. I’ve only just started setting up my workstations etc again, and hope to have more time available for this in the coming months.

Clones is awaiting scanning, there are a few other movies in the queue, and I’ll need to get HDDs to store the scan (around 20TB for a scan of Clones), but it is on the list, and if there is interest here, it will get done.

Very good! Based on other threads, I assume the needed drives are Seagate Skyhawk and Ironwolf? I can acquire these in my area. I have long term interest in a 4k scan of this and can increasingly help as the year plays out.

That is what we are using at the moment, yes.

Glad to hear you’re doing better!! The interest is certainly strong here, but your family and health comes first. 😃

Basically once I have enough HDDs we will do the scan.
