I’ve been out of commission for a couple weeks due to Hurricane Irma. I was very sorry to read about this this morning. Poita, I hope you receive only good news.

Poita, I have only recently discovered your work, and based off of the screenshots and clips you’ve provided, I’d say you’re a really talented dude. I only wish you the best in your health issues. God fucking speed my dude, my prayers are with you.

Hope you have a full and speedy recovery, Poita, you’re in my prayers. And thanks for all you do for your fellow Star Wars fans and to help preserve the mighty Original Trilogy. =)

The Star Wars trilogy. There can be only one.

Thanks everyone, my arm is still out of action, but I am getting some work done by proxy.
I’ll be starting a new thread soon, but I am wondering if there is any interest in getting the SE trilogy scanned properly. I have the opportunity to do so on professional equipment (triple flashed, damage matte, 6K), and am wondering if there is any demand?

Glad to hear it’s not entirely bad news!

There are plenty of people who appreciate at least some of the Special Edition changes, so I’d definitely like to see that happen if it didn’t distract from the work on the originals. The SE shots in the official blu-ray are often more degraded (color loss, detail loss) than the unaltered shots for whatever reason, so even if you were to get just the SE shots scanned it would be an important contribution.

Just how the OOT has been ignored by contemporary releases, I think it’s certainly important to preserve the 97 SE’s as well. A few of us were introduced to the series through that, myself included, and it’s important to remember that it’s not their very existence which is problematic, it’s that they were designed to supplant the originals. My ideal world is where they can coexist, so yeah, I for one would be very interested.

Yeah, they should be scanned and preserved. Please make it happen.

Get well poita.

Plus the overall look of the 97 is quite good and the scenes that aren’t altered might be useful for areas of older prints of the oot that have become damaged.

But I want to echo everyone else and wish your health to improve.

I’m glad to read that things start getting uphill for you, Poita.

And yes, I’m very interested in seeing the '97 SE restored and preserved just like the unaltered movies. 😃

Happy to hear from you, mate. Stay well. 😃

Poita, it’s great to see you back.

I’d definitely be interested in seeing the '97 SE scanned. With these three and TPM scanned, we would just be missing a couple shots from AOTC in HD.

I’d certainly be interested in the '97 SEs. Not as a primary way to view the films, but they should be preserved, nonetheless.

Okay, I’m going ahead with Scanning the 1997 ANH SE from 35mm.

All donations welcome to help cover freight, HDDs and cleaning, I’m covering the actual scanning costs.

Time-wise, this will be relatively quick, should have the scan completed in about 9 weeks time, if I can get the funding together.
Once that is done I will get onto the other two films, and then go back to working on the Original Trilogy.
