The Brave Little Toaster (1987) 4K 35mm Film Scan! (WIP)
Time

Honestly it might be a tall order but I think it would be best to redo the subtitles from scratch.

The DVD subtitles don’t line up with what is being said numerous times throughout the movie. For example in the air conditioner scene when Kirby says “Oh yeah? Did you talk to him recently or something?” the subtitles just say “Did you talk to him?”. I’m guessing they’re like this because the subtitles may have been a based off the films script instead of going off what the characters are saying in the final version of the film or it might have just been a half-assed subtitle implementation for the DVD release but regardless of the reason it doesn’t line up.

The timing of the subtitles has some issues too. There’s that one with Kirby jumping down the waterfall but there’s also an issue during the City of Lights song where both times they sing “The city of light” at the end of the chorus the subtitles are noticeably late.

Also the look of the DVD subtitles isn’t ideal compared to customizable text subtitles. I’m not familiar with the process on implementing subtitles so I apologize if any I said sounds ignorant but I feel this should be considered for the public release of the project.

BIG UPDATE 8/24/22:

A full ProRes encode of the scan including Analog LaserDisc audio from Greg Z is ready for download for donors! File size is about 190 GB rendered at 4K and a lower bitrate (possibly Blu-Ray compatible encode) will also be uploaded within the next few days. If you want access DM me!

Special thanks to Quazza for rendering the raw image sequence as ProRes, and helping me encode the final video sync ProRes files. This project wouldn’t be possible without his help! And thank you to everyone who helped support this project through donations and contributing to the project in general. Seeing this movie scanned was such a pipedream and is now a reality. Although I suppose he would want to remain anonymous huge thanks to the owner of the print for lending it free of charge to be scanned. Without him I wouldn’t have even known this film had prints out in the wild in the first place and I wouldn’t have had such a wonderful opportunity preserving it.

The project is not over of course. I plan on doing a full on restoration of the film with possible director’s guidance and help from members of Kineko Video for a public release. I don’t plan on keeping this scan private and I believe it deserves to be seen by everyone. I do apologize to those that can’t watch this right now and I hope you get to see it soon! I am willing to answer any questions regarding the project and I have a Twitter account where I post constant updates, screenshots, and information about the scan and the film.

It looks like the new file as well as the previous sync were removed from the folder. Is there a reason as to why this was done?

We wanted to limit how many people can download the raw ProRes file in order to make sure the Google Drive Transfer Quota doesn’t get capped out so for now it will be on a person by person basis so there isn’t too much traffic. I will be hosting the encode on my own Google Drive in order to help minimize traffic.

Okay I was confused as to why that and the old sync weren’t there but that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up and I look forward to watching the project when I’m able to view it.

South Park: The Covid Saga (Released)
Time

Today is the 25th anniversary of South Park and to celebrate the occasion I wanted to make this. A fan edit combining all parts of season 24 (or as I like to call it “The Covid Saga”) into one long movie.

Over the course of the past few months I’ve discovered the world of fan edits and I want to start making my own. I decided my first project should be something simple so I get familiar with the process. Then I got the idea to combine all parts of South Park’s 24th season into a movie. I love this story line and think it’s some of the series’ best material in a long time.

I didn’t make any major changes from the original source material. As I said I wanted to make my first edit simple but here’s the full list of edits I made https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SovFj80CquXLa6nVS9o5XpjOD_366j68MOG6vBlvHdE/edit.
If you’re interested in watching it send me a PM and I will send you a link to the Google Drive folder.

I am open to criticism or suggestions people have about this edit. I’m also open to anyone who wants to help make the edit better such as adding subtitles, making a logo, or making a poster for the project. Let me know if you want to help out and I’ll be sure to credit your contribution.

Depending on how much attention this project gets I might do more South Park edits if there’s demand for it. I’d be willing to do an edit of The Coon Trilogy, The Imaginationland Trilogy, or whatever else people would want to see.

Anything yet?

Should be ready before the end of the week. Like I said the download speeds for this are VERY slow so it takes time. Reel 4 is close to being done. Download speeds on their end are only 500 kb/s and the download has been ongoing since July 18th. It will be ready when it’s ready. In the mean time here is a color corrected frame from the raw scan to give a little preview of the colors:
https://i.slow.pics/WRJwIN5l.png

What happened to doing it with the director through Zoom?

He’s been busy. He (imo) offered a better alternative which is to just send cels scans and color charts which will help with getting some accurate color correction.

Are there really cel scans and color charts for EVERY shot/scene?

idk

Jerry told me this:

“I’m not too busy to do all Zoom meetings - just the ones that don’t fit my schedule. I do hope to find a good time that works for him and for me.”

Something else: How will you know which colors are the correct ones?

I was told animation cels should be a good guideline for color correction. In the mean time before the Zoom meeting (and keep in mind idk when that will be) I will go off any high quality cel scans I can find (Heritage Auction scans being the best sources I’ve seen so far for cel scans of the first film)

If it’s any help I recently found and purchased this pack of cels https://www.etsy.com/listing/1056720452/15x-genuine-35mm-clips-the-brave-little and currently there’s another pack available

Bridger12 said: Don’t forget to keep the red tint during the climax where Rob is stuck on the conveyor belt. Director Jerry Rees told me in a Facebook message that it’s supposed to be there, but the PAL DVD took it out entirely, for reasons that fail me.

Now that you mention that I’m wondering if the B Movie scene was supposed to appear darker. It might be my imagination but in the US version it looks like the picture was darken for the musical number and then after it the colors reverted back to normal and in the PAL version the colors don’t really look like it changed at all. After hearing the red tint was intentional I feel like that might also be possible.
