Hey y’all, sorry for the delay, been busy with summer finals and a Disney trip this weekend with the girlfriend. I’ve also been messaging a few ebay sellers of the Collector’s VHS to see if any of them have the film strips with any film frames for those shots we don’t have aside from Laserdiscs and Adywan’s version. I figured it’s better than nothing, even if it’s a stretch to piece these shots back together using only the strips.
Just letting you know, the Yoda council scenes don’t match up sadly. I tried the opposite, and couldn’t make it work.
How so? I’ll take a better look at those over the next week when I get back on this project.

I just wanted to share this very recently uploaded 4K scanned 35mm print of The Phantom Menace Trailer B:
Thanks to Q-branch and thestarwarstrilogy.com! I’ve been trying to find one for a while now because most of the trailers seem to have been sourced and upscaled from DVD if I’m not mistaken. That beautiful REAL film grain, contrast and warm colors make the CGI look so much better… as expected 😃
Now it’s even harder for me to watch any of the official releases of TPM.
How does this help the project? Well… I really don’t know… but at least it gets you in the right mood! 😛
I did put me back into the mindset to work on this! I wonder if willarob or someone has the raw video files for this trailer and if someone could try different color gradings, based on our filmstrips from the boxset, from the publicity photos, to see more or less what we may want to see in this. I also am going to start cropping a couple shots based on what footage we know is theatrically accurate, if anyone has a better idea of how those scenes should look.
I really appreciate the support y’all have given me, especially since this is my first project, so thank you 😃
