The Little Mermaid (1989) - 35 mm (fully funded)

Received some first samples today, and they look pretty good. Here are some screenshots, no proper color correction has been done yet:





Donors will also be getting a video-sample shortly. It’ll take a little while longer before I’ll have the actual scan here, but I’m really looking forward to working on this and I hope you guys like it as well.

Nobody else interested in making this happen?

Come on, guys - if just 10 more people donate only 20,- € each (~$25) it’d be already paid off. Of course higher sums are also very appreciated and if you only want to send 10,- € it’s also fine. Not to mention that donors will also be getting early access to the release and I’m not sure yet if, where and when a “wider” release is going to happen at all.

We have the opportunity to get a German 1998 polyester-print of “The Little Mermaid” for scanning. The print is in great condition with very few signs of wear and we only need some donations to start scanning.

The cost for scanning and shipping are 300,- € (~$370) and if anyone would like to help out I’d really appreciate it. Just drop me a PM if you’re interested in helping getting this red-haired beauty not just her voice but also her original look back.

Here are some photos from the print, unfortunately only made on a piece of paper with a flashlight behind:






As we’ve seen on “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast” even the newer Disney-features have been altered on Blu-ray, so please help preserving this all-time-classic the way it looked back then in cinemas - including the priests infamous whipping knee. 😉

Donations so far:
300 / 300 € (fully funded)

Donors will also be getting early access to the release. A “wider” release may happen a few months later, but is not secured at this point.

At least I can’t see much grain in the 2002-DVD (don’t know if it’s SD-compression or grain - maybe my eyes are just used to HD so much that I can’t see grain in SD-material anymore 😄), but there’s definitely a light “flicker” which gives the picture this filmic look. If it is grain then it’s of very fine structure.

The Laserdiscs from the 90s have also been in 2.35:1, maybe the restauration used on the 2002-DVD was made already back then?!

A German DVD of Sleeping Beauty came out in 2002. Does anyone know if this predates the Lowry restoration? http://www.disneyinfo.nl/dvddetail.php?film=1863

It could be - here are some screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/Q3uIi
Compared to the Platinum/Diamond Edition the picture is slightly cropped and has a more filmic look.
