Hobbit Unexpected Journey scan [FUNDRAISER]

Author

I have acquired a copy of this film and would like to defray the costs of scanning. After watching the 4K Middle Earth set, I was dismayed that they had been changed from the blu-rays. And while the blu-rays are absolutely fine for me, I wanted to do a 35mm scan of H:AUJ while I could. I have had scans done through people on this site before, so I am a quiet, but known, quantity here.

If you’re interested the costs are roughly 900 for the scan (~180 mins, 5$/min), 800 for the print (already in my possession) and about 700 for shipping it around North America (all figures USD). The print is reported to have “excellent” color.

If there is enough interest to pay for the whole thing, then I’d make it a priority. If there’s little interest, it would be put on the backburner. Obviously the scanner’s level of busyness is key as well.

Those who express interest in the thread will be PM’d, I can share my Paypal, and then your username will be added to this post.

Didn’t you know that the hobbit trilogy was shot digitally?

I think he means that a print wouldn’t look that different from the Blu-ray.

I’m not sure, so I’ll leave this up to see if anyone is interested for a month or two, and if the response is null, I will delete it.
