Sorry about the double post, but I’ve been doing a bit of digging myself recently and I’ve managed to come across a reputable contact of my own who has a rather vast inventory of film prints and lucky for us all, The Keep is in that list and he is willing to have that be rented out and scanned for roughly under $800.
Truth be told, I actually am kind of betting it’s the same source because although the source’s name remains anonymous as of right now, it’s filed under his inventory as “KEEP, THE (1983)- SCOPE, LPP, BEAUTIFUL!#”, which sounds familiar doesn’t it? Anyways, I would give more information on the source but sadly as of right now, the person wants to remain anonymous so sadly I don’t have any more details as of right now. However, I will say that proof of legitimacy can be found if you know where to look.
Anyways, however, before I start vainly asking for money like a beggar, I am putting together a poll on the topic of film print scanning to determine if The Keep would gain enough traction for a print scan or another movie from the anonymouse collector’s list.

Once I have some results and sort things out, I hope to be able to start a proper thread on a couple of forums on the top picked film and work things out from there. So if y’all wanna have a Take 2 at the idea of this thread, please vote and I’ll hope to get back to you all as soon as possible.
I am currently pulling together donation pledges for a preservation scan right now. I would love to post more details when I can. If anyone is interested in pledging though, just reply down below and I’ll keep tally of it. At the moment though, I’ve just got $10 from FilmD00d, so thanks for that man.
