Guys it’s SO hard for me to spend more time on the Grindhouse given the glimpses I’ve seen of other potential sources coming on the horizon. The sad part is… I did a total cleaning of reel 4… and I can tell you with even with the rough grain intact (maybe BECAUSE it’s intact) it looks phenomenal (in my not so humble opinion, LOL).
However, when I started cleaning reel 1, that didn’t go as well for the intro crawl as I would have liked, and then I got pulled into the 4K77 project and that kept me busy for several months. Since then I’ve been focusing on losing weight and building strength up in the gym with some serious dieting so that I can be a healthier dad for my kids.
The original posts I made above promised something for Christmas at the end of the year, so let’s just see what happens between now and then. Worst case scenario I could release something incomplete that has 2 or 3 reels cleaned right? There’s a crowd here that would prefer grain and great colors, but with the caveat of dirt and scratches? But like I said… if TN1 and Poita perhaps join forces the Grindhouse print will seem like such a moot point.
