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
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.
