Look forward to seeing this new site - loved the original one! Star Wars'd out these days, but this is the one project I still have great interest in, and am looking forward to.

Well I was just a "silent reader" on the old blog, but  still I'd love to have access to the new one :-)

I really enjoyed reading the previous blog too. A lot of fascinating info about the process involved in restoring the film. Looking forward to this new one -1!

I finally got a chance to catch up with this project and am absolutely thrilled at the prospect of seeing the original films intact and in high quality (and not sourced from some horrible laser disc transfer).  I don't have as much time as I'd like to be active on this forum, but I just had to pop on and say that, for me, this is the most exciting development in Original Trilogy fandom so far.  Everything about this sounds incredible.  I cannot wait to see the finished product and I'd love to follow your progress on the new blog.  I'm extremely grateful that there are people out there like your team who are willing to preserve this milestone in cinema history for all of us!  Seriously, thank you for seeing the importance of such a project and letting us all share in the results.

Count me extremely interested in the blog as well. Great work guys!

well, it's good to see the interest.

 

honestly, i haven't had time to keep

the blog posts up (although we still

have a ton of material to post),which

is why we closed it. there's no point

in just repeating previous thoughts.

and we were just going into the 

crunch on the transfer, and you had

already seen what we were capable of.

 

in opening a new one, it wasn't my idea!

it was actually cinch and the other team

members that felt we could do more now,

considering the circumstances that have

come up in the several months since we

last left off. i'm happy to take a back seat

now, and let the other members get more

involved with the community, as they don't

have the time to post on OT. but for the blog

we feel we can be more open, and have

more of a direct contact with the members

that really are interested.

 

we know it's there.

although there's not as much activity

like when we first got it. it's pretty much

straightforward progression of the work

on each reel.

 

there's damage to be fixed at the beginning

and ends of most reels. and with the exception

of the 'han shoots first' scene, the rest is just

slight color correction and some dirt removal.

 

there's a few anomalies, and some scenes

which look different from every version out there,

including the technicolor.

 

we're starting to think the technicolor references

we've seen are not the final word on the colors at

this point.

 

some upcoming topics:

================

1 intro to new blog and discussion

2 new team members intro

3 the screening and what we learned

(media pics and video)

4 LPP vs technicolor - the great debate,

what we think (pics and video)

 

of course we have some behind the scenes

stuff, discussion of the progress of work on

the reels, some all new HD samples, and

even more surprises in store down the road.

 

stay tuned..

That's interesting.  I look forward to seeing your new blog, negative1.

so look forward to what is becoming the best, and

definitive version of star wars released in the near

future. we know we are going to be setting the standard

for preservations from here on out. we are confident

that this version will be the only one you will need

to own, and with our team, references and adherence

to detail and quality. we know you won't be

disappointed, and star wars will be preserved the

way it always should have been from the start.

That's some big words from you, but true words spoken. :) Looking forward to your new blog, great to hear that none is aboard.

We want you to be aware that we have no plans—now or in the future—to restore the earlier versions.

well, there really hasn't been much competition

for this yet, right? also we are the only people

that have this type of material, and references

along with the expertise to approach it this way

that are willing to share it with others.
