The same scene from the Blu Ray, but not the exact same frame.

I think this is one film that will have tons more detail on the BD than in the print, especially in the shadows and highlights.

Wait … no more Madame Tussauds version of Liam Neeson?

That image is what my film cell looked like before doing a 2nd and 3rd pass to get the shadows and highlights. Are you sure it isn’t that kind of issue?

This image is not from the scanner, I just pointed my camera at the film spool to see how it looked. The film has to be cleaned and prepped and then scanned.
Yes, scanning will get a lot more detail, but I don’t think it will be as detailed as the BD.
It should look way less like a soap opera though.

I didn’t get a PM, JOE.

I will be posting a few images from the other reels over the weekend.

Yeah he sent me the PM. 😛

I also added some more info about donating to the OP, just to answer a couple of questions that keep coming up.

I should’ve specified who I sent the PM to, sorry about that.

Thanks,
Quite a few pledges haven’t come in yet, I’m currently going through and inspecting each reel and checking for any damage etc.
The ANH print is headed off for cleaning and will hopefully start scanning next week.
I’d like to get TPM print off for cleaning not long after.

Oh, just to clarify, the $400 is just the cost of shipping the print.
