How has Shrek been altered since it’s original release?

Where were you in '77?

Well, all releases have been from the raw computer files, not from film. The film I remember having a much warmer tone to it. Also, the audio on the blu ray has an added music cue that wasn’t on any other release, and that I don’t recall from the theater.

I was actually working on a project that I never finished where I was going to “filmize” the blu-ray, using trailers and promo photos as color reference. I cancelled that project before announcing it in hopes that something like this would come along. If only I didn’t have to buy christmas presents, I would buy it and get it scanned myself.

If you’re serious about it and want to buy the print I can get you a quote on scanning.

Just bought it. Not letting it go away.

I’m starting a donation pool for scanning the print. It’s about 180$ if it does NOT need cleaning, but it might be more if it does. For now, I’m hoping to raise at least 140$ (there’s no deadline on this, so don’t feel obligated to donate). If the print needs cleaning I’ll ask/save up for more depending on my financial situation.

If you’d like to donate, PM me and I’ll send a link to my paypal. I’m really excited for this, and I hope you guys are too. This will be my biggest restoration project by far! 😄

A comparison of some of the Blu-ray frames VS the Promo stills. The promo stills are in pretty bad quality, but note how much darker they are as well as the reddish tone. Also note that on the first image, part of the glare from the sun has been removed on the blu-ray.

Some more research reveals that the glare from that first shot is also on the original DVD, but not in the same place as the 35MM. Looks like they’ve been altering this movie since its initial home video release. Even more reason to preserve the 35MM.

Wow, I had no idea this film was getting altered! Hate to say that I’m not surprised… but I’m glad that the original version will be preserved. 😃
