Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I just wanted to give a shout out to Puggo for this awesome edition of Star Wars! I've been on this site for a while and whilst we've dreamed of having pristine copies of the OT for the longest time (and that's becoming more of a reality with Harmy's and Dark Jedi's projects), having a telecine of this beat up, worn out, scratched, pink faded 16mm print seems just more...theatrically authentic.

I'm probably biased seeing as I used to run a film club back in college and this brought me back to the days of dealing with those faded, scratched, poor sounding prints, but not caring and getting lost in these great stories.

Thank you!

I ran Puggo's SW at least 10 different times for the club I ran in college. Blew people away every time. And this was after I had configured the screening room with all the integrated amplifiers....made mono sound incredible.

Now that's awesome! Where did you go to school?

I went to The University of Tampa. We had two dedicated "screening rooms"  which were actually just classrooms with a projector and sound system. When I got there I wound up working in the equipment cage and then took it upon myself to start a film society and screen/discuss films. I found that the projectors sucked, but whoever had built the sound system had actually put some dedicated work into getting some pretty great equipment. It took forever to get everything connected and configured in the menus correctly. (I hate those stupid theater universal touch screen panels!) I then convinced the Department/twisted a lot of arms to change to some better projectors that were actually 16:9.

Here are a few photos I took of one of the screenings and equipment:

Got this room nearly full several times (30-50 people):

This is the mounted main console with all the controls and amps (and an LD player plugged in.)

4 of these JBL Control 28 speakers (L,R, LS, RS)

This JBL Control 25 speaker for Center/Mono

2 of these ceiling mounted JBL speakers for LFE (with two it kinda reminded me of Dolby 70mm-the materials used to make this room didn't stand up to these so the room would shake constantly!)

The screen down with lights on: (This was before it was changed to a 16:9 screen.)

With guide lights only:

One for perspective:

The projector was a nice mid-priced Epson with a 3LCD and some really nice color. The DVD player was an early Sony 1080i upscaling player.

Other equipment:

QSC Professional Amplifier CX168, Crestron C2N-DAP8, Crestron MP2E.

Once I figured out the system, I could turn off the default ProLogic II and Nero defaults. For the PG I threw everything to the front so it would come out in true mono or mono over the L and R channels when it was a packed room. This system always kept those overhead speakers engaged for lower elements and with all of those amps, it got really loud. Room shaking loud. And still mono!

Again, Brilliant work Puggo. You've done a man's job sir.

Also, one of the last things I did while still at that school, since there was such a demand for SW, was an OT.com trilogy: the PG, Ady's ESB Theatrical and Harmy's ROTJ Theatrical. Stunning.

I was thinking about making DVD-covers for Puggo's transfers, but then I thought of a more appropriate way to store the discs... CD tins (unlike the ones below there are some types that have a hub in the middle to actually hold the disc):

Granted, I don't know anything about 16 mm film, so I have no idea what information is actually on those labels (even Google's image search wasn't too helpful with that). It's just an idea though. Here are the labels at full size (about two inches in diameter when printed at 300dpi):

That was so cool!  Hopefully you'll be around to show the 16mm grab of ESB.  Heck, after ROTJ is done, you can show a real old-time OT marathon!  Guaranteed to lower everyone's eyesite by a full diopter, or your money back!

:) Glad you liked it! I wish I had been able to show ESB, but I graduated in May.

Nice covers, but I'm not too sure about the disc tins. From my experience they can be very annoying, but maybe with a holder inside it might work. (Speed Racer Vol. 3 has been most annoying.)

I found these:

The bottom of the tin has a holder, while the inside of the lid has some foam padding, so the discs is fixated on the nub. Although I'm wondering how you get the disc out of the tin... if the edges are too high, you won't be able to get your fingers under the disc.

Also I can't think of a way to put them on a shelf without simply stacking them... not too fancy, I guess.

Wouldn't you have to keep readjusting everything when you switched between 16:9 and 4:3?

The side with the little indentation is actually the lid - Note that on the standing container, the smooth side fits within the other (and assumedly nubbed) side. The nub is not a functional nub, but instead decorative (and thus a bit prohibitive for stickers?). The disc sits atop the foam bit on the bottom, resting.

At least, that's my take on it.
