Original Jurassic Park Trilogy 35mm Preservation Project

This project seems dead in the water, and the project host ran off with the funds.
Nothing new, nothing lost.

Hi, one of the folks in charge of the project here.

First off, false. We collected exactly what we needed and are in the process of scanning. YOU were too impatient despite us having genuine delays due to real-life issues as well as hardware issues that come from having to diagnose issues from a custom machine.

YOU also caused so much trouble on Discord that you got banned and I had to go in and defend you in order to get re-instated, only for you to act like a child once again, and get banned.

Finally, when you decided that a restoration project of this caliber was taking too long, YOU demanded a refund. I issued this refund FULLY almost immediately as I did not want any issues.

YOU were a troublemaker from day one and have caused nothing but headaches for me and others on Discord with your complaining and your antics.

YOU play Mr Smartass so much, so why don’t you try to do your own scanning project. If this project is dead in the water, then maybe YOU should be the one to do since YOU know everything in the goddamn world.

ALSO admins, note this user has been harassing the project and us as well as been on this Forum and several other forums. I am not sure how this one works, but I believe an IP ban maybe required.

Original Jurassic Park Trilogy 35mm Preservation Project

Hello Everyone,

I am TGR97 or better known as Wedge Antilles in the Jurassic Park community. I come to you today to tell you about a special project that I have been blessed to be a part of. I teamed up with fellow OT Forum user doombot to bring to you all 4K scans of the 35mm reels for the original Jurassic Park Trilogy!

What does this mean? Well, we will be bringing to you 4K scans of the Open Matte versions of Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3 as well as a matted version of The Lost World! They will also be presented in the original colors as it was seen in the theatres, making it the most authentic versions of the films out there!

So far, we have:
• Fully scanned JP3 and are working to clean it up
• Currently scanning TLW
• Fully scanned and encoded in 4k Open Matte version of the first Jurassic Park teaser from 1992.
• Fully scanned and encoded in 4k Open Matte version of a Jurassic Park trailer from 1992.

We still have to do:
• Jurassic Park

We are looking to collect 1.4k to finish this project! If anyone wants to donate, please send me a DM and I will give you the donation link.

By donating, you will get access to everything you see here + whatever other special goodies we can get + downloadable custom Blu Ray kits made by me!

Here are some pics for JP3!


DONATED (as of 2022/08/07): 3000$


Info Wanted: the 2 Ewok Theatrical Movies - any HD Upscales?

Hey everyone,

Is there any fanmade HD Upscales for the Ewok Movies (mostly because a friend and I are gonna be burning the Despecialized Movies, Holiday Special on Blu Ray and I thought it would be cool to have a whole OG Trilogy set going on) or is the DVD rips the only versions out there (cause if anything I’ll put it on DVD only.

I don’t think anyone can answer that until you do it. What you’re describing is the same thing as AVCHD discs (Blu-ray format on DVD media, which work on some players, but not others), but in reverse. You’re making DVD format on Blu-ray media. I’m assuming, like AVCHD, some players may understand what to do with it, but I wouldn’t count on it.

Springing for some writable DVD media would be pretty painless and would always work.

I see I see, Thanks for the patience and the reply!

If I were to burn the VIDEO_TS Folder onto a Blu-Ray disc, will it work as if it were a DVD or not?

Not in a DVD player it wouldn’t, the media’s not readable. But software players don’t care about filesystems and media. i.e. VLC can play VIDEO_TS from NTFS. In a Blu-ray player, I doubt such a disc would work reliably across models, if it works at all – it is readable, but doesn’t match any known disc spec.

So basically if I burn the file onto a disc and pop it into a PS4/PS3/Blu Ray player it will work? Sorry, I do not get the last part
