I’m after the deleted calamari pilot shot so if anyone else takes this on would you mind sharing?

I did a quick DNR pass at the footage and it doesn’t look half bad

Still needs dirt and scratches cleaned, but if you give me a specific clip or segement to work on, I can give it a shot

I might check those guys out. Do they have any websites or profiles I can look at?

You can message either one of those guys right here on this forum. Willarob has done many Bond pictures, Star Wars films, and everything inbetween. TomArrow (or LucasGodzilla here on OT) does a lot of varied work as well, and I’ve donated to prints scanned by both of them with exceptional quality.

Info, &amp; Help: looking for... 'Dressing a Galaxy' DVD...
Time

Not sure if anyone still cares, but I’m pretty sure these should be all 4 Featurettes as featured on the disc.

  1. Costume Drama - https://youtu.be/DUCjfLGMiJA

  2. TPM Costumes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cWexTfyzUI

  3. P-19 Webisode https://youtu.be/3Wjk_-E5LoQ

  4. Epic Designs For An Expanding Universe https://youtu.be/fbp1PLFikog

  5. EPK Costumes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bdho-o-XooU

I still think this should cover it, but it would still be fun to preserve the disc.

Wanted: Scrubs Best Buy Bonus Disc Preservations - for a custom DVD edit
Time

Sorry to Necro such an old thread, but I managed to get the S2 Bonus Disc and all its special features.

Someone on Reddit bought the disc and uploaded it to Archive.org. I grabbed it when I could but I don’t think it’s still up there. If anyone is interested, I can reupload it.

The Season 1 disc is still missing, so if anyone is able to find that too, it would make a great match.

Definitive VIDEO Guide to Star Wars Changes (WIP; FEEDBACK WANTED)
Time

Section 3 is looking good, and I can’t notice any flaws. From memory, I think there was another audio change in TPM, as the senate chanting was changed from “Vote now!” to incoherent yelling. I think this was a DVD change, but I’m not 100% sure as it could of been a BR change.

Otherwise, I haven’t noticed any technical or factual errors, it’s looking good!

Any updates on this? Clips look good so far.

This edit should be released this coming Monday as everything is pretty much set in stone.

Here’s a fun little bonus featuring some excerpts from the commentary track, with George, Ben Burtt and Rob Coleman talking about deleted scenes, with some added relevent visuals.

The Phantom Menace - Bobson's Theatrical Recontruction v2 (WIP)
Time

J0E said:

WOW that looks incredible. Did Zig’s 35mm scan come out already or did someone else get their hands on a print? Either way I’m hard. I haven’t watched this film proper in ages with the exception of the version I got from you almost a year ago. I’m in eager anticipation of this. Keep up the good work my dude, TPM deserves more love from the fan restoration community.

Puppet Yoda this time around or CGI?

Zig’s 35mm scan hasn’t come out yet, this is a seperate scan that’s been done by different people.

I still don’t love the film, I think its a boring mess of crap but I think it’s important that it’s preserved in some fashion.

CG Yoda still for this project, cleaning up the Puppet Yoda will take a lot more time.

Speaking of cleanup, here’s a comparison with the first 4 35mm shots

The Phantom Menace - Bobson's Theatrical Recontruction v2 (WIP)
Time

Work has restarted on this as I now have a 35mm scan of the theatrical cut, and am now using it as a source instead of the HDTV version. I’ve cut the 2019 Blu-Ray to line it up with ZigZig’s laserdisc, and am using the 35mm scan to fill the gaps, of which there are 9.

Here’s a look at a bit of the work I’ve done on the 35mm, trying to make it look a little closer to the Blu-Ray, but of course there’s still some grain and scratches that prevail since this is the raw scan with no cleanup.

Top is the raw scan, then my colour/cleanup, and then the Blu-Ray.

So with everything you’ve learnt with that deleted scene in removing timestamps do you think you will ever tackle the Finn and Phasma fight scene from TLJ?

youtu.be/UzeIb-TZo_I

This is the best the scene can be for now, as there is missing footage from the start of the scene that makes continuity tricky, as well as the unfinished VFX towards the end

I’m echoing the sentiments about how important the Phasma scene is, and how great your cleanup of it looks. Unless I’ve missed it somewhere, what’s left to be done on that scene before it’s ready for inclusion?

The unfinished VFX leaves a lot to be desired. The only thing that doesn’t work is the transition into and out of the scene as there is some footage missing on either side.

Colour work and tracking marker removal is pretty much done though.

Here’s the last cut of the scene that I worked on. This is how it stands at the moment in my Workprint of the film.

<strong>The Empire Strikes Back</strong> - a general <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> thread
Time

I got curious about how cropped the Falcon cockpit shots really were since I knew they were about 9% smaller on subsequent releases, so I compared the most recent Blu-Ray to the raw footage from the “Celebrating 40 Years of Empire” video and my god. There’s more image left out than there was left in.

George must’ve really hated how open they made that little set.

Here’s how it could of looked, cropped to 2.35:1. A little more spacious, but not overly.

I just love how you extend these movies! Looking forward to this!

I hope one day you’ll take on ANH. I know there’s a lot of black and footage but I hope you wouldn’t let that hinder you from incorporating it in too!

I definitely am going to look into doing an extended/lost cut of the original Star Wars after this. I’ve collected up all the unused footage in my Star Wars: Leftovers project, so everything is basically ready to go.

Work on the TPM edit has just about finished as I’ve recut the Podrace grid sequence to be mostly true HD footage now. Expect a recent soon-ish…

I had a closer look at the scene, trying to cut it in and honestly it’s not terrible but it’s clear that the scene isn’t all there. The colours are a real pain in the ass to get to match the final film though.

I also used the theatrical audio from ZigZig’s laserdisc, as the chanting “VOTE NOW” works a lot better in the scene than the revised DVD incorherent yelling.

Here is the scene in it’s current form.

Roger

This is the extended Coruscant establishing scene with an extended shot from the DVD Deleted Scenes, and a new shot of Palpatine’s office from the Theatrical Shot, borrowed from a recent 35mm scan. The next shot of Anakin and Jar Jar is also from that scan.

TPM

Another addition to my own Expanded Series of films, as I tackle the first of the Prequel films.

  • Added the Gungan bongo about to go over a waterfall as the Jedi and Jar Jar escape
  • Added Anakin, Padme and the droids looking over the Pod the morning of the race
  • Extended version of the pre-podrace grid sequence, an extra line from Watto sourced from the Theatrical Cut is also added
  • Extended Podrace Lap 2 (this needs a bit of work combining the Blu-Ray/DVD Extended versions)
  • Added Anakin having scuffle with a Rodian that is refered to as “Greedo” (although I’d like to avoid that personally with new subtitles)
  • Added Anakin visiting Jira before leaving Tatooine, as Maul’s probe droid watches them, explaining them running in the final film
  • Added alternate shot of Palpatine’s office from the Theatrical Cut
  • Added a few extra shots of the Maul fight in the Theed Generator

There’s still a few additional shots of the Naboo fighters I haven’t had the chance to look at how they’d fit in, including the spinning fighter. If there is anything else I have forgotten, please do let me know.

Scenes to be included in a workprint

  • Added 2 droids seeing the Jedi arriving on the Trade Federation ship, commenting on their importance
  • Extended version of the Podrace wager between Watto and Qui-Gon
  • Extended duel with Maul and Qui-Gon on Tatooine
  • Added alternate version of Padme and Panaka telling the Nemodians they’ll have to explain this to the Senate (now in the Throne Room during the climax)
  • Added Ric Ollie in the hanger questing the pilot who blew up the Trade-Fed ship, as Anakin lands

The only thing I don’t think I’d include in a workprint is the Bail Antillies/Organa scene since it confuses things a little with Jimmy Smits.

Current runtime is 2:22:36 compared to the Blu-Ray’s 2:16:11. I still need to look over the Extended DVD Lap 2 compared to the Blu-Ray and work on combining them in someway as it’s a big mess of what goes where. So the runtime will probably be longer by a minute or 2.

Here’s the extra Duel shots, taken from the Deleted Scenes documentary on the DVD and upscaled to HD. The score used is not final as I can’t quite get the right section of the track to line up, as well as the Lightsaber SFX not being there.
