I was asked to make a new thread for this to see if there would be some interest and ideas as to how to make it happen. I have a 1976 'scope 16mm print of American Graffiti on Kodak SP which has lovely color. It has been my preferred way of watching the film for a long time now, so I didn’t even realize that there was a different version of the film (which came out in '78). Even though it is SP, it just leans a hair towards red - it is absolutely watchable and in mint condition.
I would be more than happy to scan it (or telecine it with a digital camera, similar to -1’s project) but have zero experience in that department. Ideally, I would like to scan it at 2k or 4k (like -1 did - if he can do it, that should be my goal, too.) Basically what I am asking for in this thread is help on building a telecine machine similar to the one -1 and cinch built, or just general suggestions on how I might get it scanned or telecined. I have talked to Puggo, as well, but he only has the capability to do SD.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
