The Gumby Show 16mm Preservation

 (Edited)

Hey everyone I got another quick 16mm crowdfund!

It’s a 16mm TV print for The Gumby Show!

This show has only ever had DVD sets and what seems to be weirdly mixed audio so not only would this be interesting to see the show in higher quality, but with something closer to the original sound!

I am covering about 16 dollars of the cost on this but I need 2 more people to help split 10 dollars each way on the rest for scanning. [Donors get a full-frame 4K scan of the print]

Donors:
Me - 16 USD
Donor - 10 USD
Donor - 10 USD

(UDPATE: FULLY FUNDED!)

Private message me if you are interested!

Don’t worry. I’ll make a public 1080p release for people that can’t donate. Donors will just have access to the raw scans and uncorrected versions without any restorations as a thanks for helping.

i’m interested in how one restores a 16mm print.

I always wanted to try a single episode of Star Blazers to see if it was possible to do the show in HD.

Gumby ought to be interesting.

Here are the results with color correction. Sadly it doesn’t have any many details as the DVD since the DVD uses a 35mm master, but it still looks quite nice.
