As I’m sure you all know, swazzy recently gave the link to a 35MM print of the original Shrek from 2001 on ebay. I decided to get it myself, since I had already been working on a project to “filmize” the blu-ray. With an original 35MM print, there would be no need to fake the look of film.

Project Goals:

Restore Shrek from an original 35MM print with original Stereo audio
Release On blu-ray with bonus features including restored trailer, making of documentaries, etc.

Project Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7gYGHHzBLg

Thanks everyone! 😃

I might be able to donate once I get my ducks in a row financially.

I wonder if someone in the community has the Cinema DTS discs to go with this film? It would put an already awesome project to the next step IMO.

The original DVD has a 5.1 track, but theres something I need to check on the sound to the 35MM print to ensure whether or not it’s the original.

Sorry for the late reply paja, here they are.

Note that the one on the top left was opened, just to make sure they were in good shape.

Still accepting donations. Need about 125$. If I don’t get enough, I’ll just pay for it myself and send the reels to the scanner next month.

Are you going to scan it at a 2K Digital Intermediate or a 4K Digital Intermediate?

Well, I have the money for the scan, but the shipping cost is a little steep at the moment, so I may have to re-open donations for a short time. This time I’d only need about 100. The 200 for the scan is already taken care of.
