I can’t really tell based on the picture of the reel, looking at the Paramount logo, so I’ll just ask: is this print open matte or anamorphic?
Dear beautiful members - we have access to a fabulous 35mm cinematic print of Titanic. How fabulous you ask? Well here is a four minute preview scan of Reel 1, it has not been cleaned:
Note that’s just a preview scan. It was heavily compressed, and the scanner wasn’t correctly calibrated hence why it’s rough at the start. Also, not all reels will be as scratch-free as this one.
Reel 2 preview:
Preview pics from the test scan:
It is rare to find a print in this condition of such a popular film.
A very generous offer was made by someone to pay most of the cost of this scan. Therefore we only need $375 to get this scanned in 4K (not including storage)! As you can see from the preview, we should be able to get a good quality release of this ready well before the 20th anniversary of the film later this year, and we already have the cinema DTS too.
So what are you waiting for? Donate now! Cpalmer2k will handle all donations.
2017 June 30- UPDATE!
Thanks to the very generous donations of OT.com forum members the scan has been fully funded! You are welcome to donate to help towards the other associated costs, and those donations should be directed to me as Cpalmer2k was only handling the scanning funds. And a big big thanks to him for doing so.
Special thanks go to cpalmer2k, alexp120, Jetrell Fo, and Soupdrinker0.
