Hi everyone,

I’ve been collecting workprints since 2007. The first ever workprint I got was Apocalpyse Now and since then I’ve gotten a big collection. For about a few months I’ve been looking for the workprints that were floating around in trading circles back in the 1990’s and 2000’s. Since then, they have been long gone. There have to be people out there who still have the old stuff.

Whenever a workprint is found. It means I’m in the process of getting info and hopefully getting a copy and once I recieve the item. It’ll be added to my trading list.

12/28/2017 - My want list & trading list have been updated.
01/03/2018 - George of the Jungle & My Favorite Martian have been found.
01/04/2018 - From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money has been found.

I’ve heard conflicting reports as to what Crash’s workprint is. One particular post claimed it ran roughly 160 minutes, another that it runs “10 minutes longer than the R-rated cut” which if true, makes it no different than what was released in theaters as it was put out uncut at NC-17. The R-rated “cut” was assembled for the DVD only via seamless branching.

If the workprint truly is longer than the “uncut” version I’d love to see it too.

That master list doesn’t have everything listed yet. Like where’s Kids workprint on it.
