The look I am aiming to recreate was very easily obtainable in After Effects. Essentially by adjusting curves/levels, compressing highlights, and adding gate weave/grain I was able to produce an authentic look that I imagine comes close to how the movie appeared in many theatres in 2004.

Looks like screenshot comparison deleted it, could you reupload a new comparison thing?

I love the premise behind this project.

Reminds me of how Studio Ghibli’s digital productions are filtered for Blu-ray to look more like they’re made on film.
With subtle film grain, softness and even gate weave.
Though, I do like that even when they are filtered, the grain is still more subtle than actual 35mm prints or actual 35mm productions.

I love the appearance.

I really wish that your re-creation of The SpongeBob SquarePants movie would look more similar to Studio Ghibli’s approach instead of the grain of an actual 35mm print.

Ghibli’s approach is cleaner and it isn’t as overly filtered, but it still looks really nice and film-like.
Truly the best of both worlds.

And I’ve loved every pixel of it.

You’re so right.

eBay has graced us with some high quality scans of the primary trailer:

While there is an obvious yellow fade over this particular print, we now have a clear idea of how the curves, exposure, and contrast of the digital animation looked when transferred over to a theatrical print. Based upon my own copy of this same trailer, and the scan uploaded to Paramount’s YouTube channel, a proper color timing can easily be reached.

Right now I’m downloading a 2005 VHS Rip of the movie because i hear it has the original colors. Do other Nick movies have their colors changed when transferred to Blu Ray?

Hm, It’s dumb how The Blu-ray May have been color corrected to look like the series. I mean yeah consistency but films should be left in their original state for all to view

I recently bought a couple film cell strips from the film, not from a trailer, but from an actual film print.

I was fortunate to attend that 35mm screening in NYC where Drymon spoke afterwards. The film was in… interesting condition. Reel 1 seemed to be a bit more saturated and with some slightly stronger contrast. The rest of the film looked more like the DVD/Blu-Ray versions.

The screening was amazing. The audience was extremely enthusiastic and everyone was applauding and laughing all the way through.

Excuse me? Did you say “The screening was amazing”?
