The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints
Time

Poita, just want to say again, thank you sincerely for all the work you are putting in despite all the life pressures you are dealing with. I doubt there is a more passionate and dedicated preservationist on the internet and I will cheerfully wait as long as it takes for your trilogy to be completed. All the best to your good self and your family.

Any interest in professionally made box sets for Despecialized?

Personally, I am not a fan of tecnical aspects.
If you give a look at my designs you will see it: just year, country and duration.

About customization of different options to anyone of you… I think you are not going to be too much people; I am reading answers from 5-10 of you. So, I guess it will not be a problem having some kind of personalization if you want.

In fact… to be sincere, I don’t see interest in a design made for the members of ‘Original Trilogy’ but in a specific design made for each of you.
Maybe you should think about that. If finally there is a different design for each of you… I think this should not go on as a project of the community and I would prefer speaking in private with each interested member.

Best,
JoMaSanRa.

Hi Jose,
Wow, that is extremely generous of you. Thanks so much for the offer. I will be in touch!

Another scene in progress. Just 7 or so minutes of footage left for this film.

That is just beautiful. I love the more film-like contrast; you’re working miracles here. Two thumbs up. 😃

I’ve been asked about the condition of the German print and if it is salvageable.
I did have some of it scanned, even though I couldn’t get it cleaned. I’m uploading a few seconds of how it looks mixed in with how it looks with a very basic restoration done to it, as a quick test of how much work would be required.
The print is very red, but it looks like a reasonable colour balance could still be achieved, it is quite battered and dirty, but a lot of that can be worked around.

A very quick sample, with some basic adjustments can be grabbed here:

Incredible. I never cease to be amazed at the colour you are able to salvage from these red prints.

Question, how do we feel about adding in a touch of sharpening?

Feeling real good.

😃

Updated photos:

This is probably close to my final version. The gamma has been adjusted considerably from the grindhouse edition and this version looks pretty decent across all of my various display sources. I applied a bit of sharpening to this one as well. Added in a few new shots.

This looks great, mate. The saturation is very pleasing. Hope you can make this available. 😃

As a few of you know, I have health issues, and I am away from Monday through Friday for treatment, so may or may not be able to answer PMs etc. until the weekend, depending how hard it all hits.

I’ll be back online Monday week at the latest, so don’t take radio silence in-between as me ignoring anyone 😃

Wishing you all the best, mate.

Thanks to everyone, we have enough to have 5 reels cleaned, and aren’t far from being able to get #6 done, so I have sent them all in, and am hopeful that we will raise the last part before I have to pay the bill 😃

My heartfelt thanks to everyone that has helped out in any way, I feel it is such an important film to preserve, and it was literally going to fade away forvever if we didn’t act

I’m uploading the scans done so far to Harmy now, and will post some images and samples over the next few days as I get them rendered out.

GO TEAM!
