Gold Standard Collection #3: THX-1138 (theatrical cut and first Director's Cut) (a WIP)
Time

I’m 21 minutes into the edit (nearly a quarter of the way through), and already I came across a brace of trouble spots: during the radiation incident, and just after the accusation scene nearly 20 minutes in. Both appear to be sourced from use of the laser videodisc release in the Italian print during moments that were altered for the second Director’s Cut in 2004. The first of these I was able to patch up quick and dirty with EbSynth and GIMP, but it still doesn’t look great. At this point, I’m starting to wonder if maybe I should put this project on hold until another full-color 35mm print of the studio cut or the first Director’s Cut surfaces.

American Graffiti - Original Cut Restoration (Mechanical Assistance/Telecine Experts Needed!) (* unfinished project *) - lots of information...
Time

If someone could obtain the original closing credits along with John Milner’s original death date and get them scanned, I’m hoping to integrate them with the Blu-ray footage as part of my 1973 theatrical cut restoration, which I plan to start work, and a thread, on after I finish the 1971 theatrical cut of THX-1138.

Thanks. I’d finished with v1.0.2 of my Toy Story project last month and took a bit of a break from it, satisfied thus far with my progress; I plan to get back to it and work on v1.1 sometime this winter or spring, both to clean up visual imperfections and to start adding foreign language versions.

For Akira, I’m currently waiting on some very important materials before getting started with that one; however, I do have most of what I need for the project.

As for this project, I’m laying the foundations for this one as we speak and should have at least some of the 1971 theatrical cut assembled in Blender over the weekend.
