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.

Yeah I was just telling RU.08 that I won’t be able to make good on it until about a week from now. Based off of those few frames, the print looks to be in decent shape. If the rest of the print looks like that and just has a “cigarette burn” or two It would be a miracle. The colours look pretty good too.

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

Yeah I was almost going to edit that before. But done that now.

Yep, I wasn’t going to say what you were asking on the forum, but I know I get the same thing frequently with donations to my projects.

The green marks you see are base damage, but if the film has an IR matte I think it’s pretty much an automated process to remove them. You can see this damage in a few of the 35mm releases on the Spleen, including in the latest Ghostbusters release.

Hi,

Dear God! Amazing quality. This trailer makes it look like someone sneezed all over the Blu Ray transfer. Excellent.

Another $20 sent. Though I’m not a huge fan of this film on the whole either, it’s very historically important and needs an original theatrical preservation. I’m all for it.

Just made a small donation. I’m broke right now, but I hope it helps. I’m very excited for this! From the looks of the scan of the 35mm trailer, the texture/grain of the print seems to help blend in the CGI elements a bit, so that’s awesome. Good luck!

Thanks for that, it is much appreciated. Will try to get some more samples up soon, the SE is eating up all my time this week.

Hey I just found out about this project a few days ago and I’m excited! It looks like things have slowed down. Would a donation still help?

Yes donations will help, see the first post. Poita has to finish the ANH:SE scan first before moving on to this. 😃

Sent a donation just because this is pure awesomeness. As a SW fan this warms my heart =)

I sent a little donation cause this project looks awesome ! (I’ll probably give more for this project later.)
Good Luck from France !

I figured I’d ask here as Poita hasn’t been online in a while. How’s the 97 SW scan going?

Best to ask in the correct thread. This is the last update so far:

poita said:

Things are on hold for a week or two, the scanner is being serviced to fix the focus problem. Should result in faster scans though once rectified.
As soon as the scanner is back up and running I’ll post a few more images.

Scanner has been repaired, and ANH SE will hopefully be completed in the next two weeks, will then move onto TPM.

That’s fantastic to hear! I’m excited for both of the ongoing projects!

Just as a thank you I put together a poster to promote your TPM project.

This project looks awesome! Is this also going to be triple flashed like the SE 97 Trilogy or just single?
