Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends UK Series 1-2 Original Broadcast Version Reconstruction
Time

alloneword said:

After an extended break, I decided to pick up Series 1 again which is requiring more work than Series 2 and 3. This is mainly due to the VHS yellow line transition effects which merge into the DVD episode footage which has to be done frame-by-frame and recently deciding to remaster the audio separately with Audacity just like I did with S2 & 3.

I’ve just finished Episodes 1-8 (Thomas & Gordon AoS) and will begin the remaining episodes as soon as, then my project will be done. If I can get these done by the 35th Anniversary (9th October) that would be nice.

I’m also still open to any better sources anyone can offer me to use, such as higher quality original masters from from DVD sources, etc.

If anyone wants to see what I’ve done so far, PM me.

Hope there will be a nameboard sequence in between “Percy Runs Away” and “Coal”, but still, can’t wait to see this.

Extra "Fantasia" commentary audio may still exist...

Identically. Save for just one word in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice intro (in the draft it’s “wrote his music,” but in the dub it’s “wrote the music” instead) it’s all the same.

I think another word may have been changed from the Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria intro. On the VHS tape that I own, Deems Taylor describes Ave Maria as “immortal”, whereas in the DVD version, he describes it as “world-famous”. I’m not sure whether Deems Taylor says “immortal” in the original roadshow version, but I think the VHS tape implies that he does.

Restoration Of The Star Wars Deleted Scenes

Hello, I’m looking for the upscaled deleted scene from AOTC when Obi Wan takes off from Coruscant aboard this starfighter after talking with Mace Windu, if anyone among you will have that it would be the savior of my project, PM please me

Wow, looks like I’m not the only one who wants the deleted scenes from the Prequel Trilogy restored along with those from the Original Trilogy. Now, I’m not sure if the deleted scene you’re talking about is even upscaled, but I heard that it’s available on the Episode II DVD. It might also be available on Disc 7 of The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray, but I’m not sure.

Help With Fantasia Original 1940 Version Reconstruction
Time

I read in a YouTube comment that somebody read in a forum that Disney had re-discovered the complete Deems Taylor narrations, with his actual voice, around the time Fantasia was released on Blu-Ray. However, the Blu-Ray release uses the Corey Burton audio from the 2000 DVD release. I don’t know if the “original narrations being re-discovered” thing is true or not, but I’m waiting for an answer about that on the YouTube video where I found the comment, to which I replied. I hope what the forum said is, indeed, true because I’m really wanting to completely recreate the Original Roadshow Version of Fantasia. I’m still considering making my own dubbing of the narrations as a back-up plan, but if that forum is true, then I would be super-hyped for a Disney+ release of Fantasia, complete with the original narrations.

Harmy's STAR WARS Respecialized Edition '97 - AVCHD and MKV now out!
Time

trillary dump said:

I really appreciate Harmy took the time to recreate the 97 version of ANH! But there’s one small error that’s been bugging me. I don’t know if anyone else noticed this but in the Jabba scene at one point you can see the 04 Jabba poke out of the rotoscoping for a second as shown here:

Thanks for pointing that out. I’m sure it won’t matter because I could barely notice it. The 2004 Jabba is just a invisible blur, but I’m sure people won’t be able to notice it.

Help With Fantasia Original 1940 Version Reconstruction
Time

Hello. I am completely against censoring animation and illustrated books, so I have decided to start a rebellion where I recreate the original versions of animated works and illustrated books as a way of protest. Fantasia is my first project in this rebellion. The uncensoring process is already done. Now, I just need the audio for Deems Taylor’s narration. There’s one small problem: the VHS tape that I own doesn’t have the full narrations. So, is there any 35mm print of the movie that has the full narrations? Thank you.

Star Wars OT & 1997 Special Edition Info.
Time

Bluto said:

Both the MKV (14 GB) and AVCHD (8 GB) versions of Adywan’s ESB 1997 are already in full HD (1080p). The former is slightly higher quality, but the latter is suitable for burning to a DVD9 disc and playing in a standalone Blu-ray player.

The colour-correction used makes Hoth very white (i.e. the snow has virtually no blue tint to it), making this presentation rather unique.

Bluto

Well, where can I find Adywan’s TESB 1997? Also, will Adywan be working on a ROTJ 1997?

Star Wars OT & 1997 Special Edition Info.
Time

That’s disappointing. The altered ending is one of the few changes in the entire trilogy that’s actually not bad, and of course it hasn’t been seen in its original form since the DVDs came out in 2004. The extra scenes they’ve added to it since then completely wreck the pacing.

Yeah, I kinda like the 1997 ending to Return of the Jedi. You get this nice music in combination with different planets celebrating the end of the Galactic Empire. That ending is the perfect connection to the then-upcoming Prequel Trilogy. This ending will be the basis for the ending sequence of my animated Ultimate Edition of Return of the Jedi, meaning it will follow the 1997 Special Edition (Sebastian Shaw as Anakin’s ghost, how it’s supposed to go!!!). In my mind, the Special Editions of the Original Trilogy should have been left alone as they were back in 1997 and I am wanting to have those Special Editions in Blu-Ray quality. I guess I’ll just have to wait until Harmy does a Respecialized Edition '97 of both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Sesame Street Classic Skits Perservation
Time

Okay, just to update, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) will be preserving every episode of Sesame Street so far to celebrate the show’s golden anniversary. However, nobody mentioned anything about these episodes being available to watch on the AAPB’s website, so I’m wanting to make that happen. If they do become available on the AAPB’s website, I’ll let you know. As for my animated remake of the first season, I have finished recreating the funding credits. However, I’m not sure if I want to redo it because on the Season 1 credits found on the Old School DVD’s, the funding credits dissolves to the NET logo, but on actual first season episodes that I found on YouTube, it’s just a simple cut. I guess I’ll just have to see if the digitized episodes by the AAPB will have a simple cut if they ever become available on their website. Thanks for your help in trying to find these lost skits from the first season and please let me know if any of you do find something.

Sesame Street Classic Skits Perservation
Time

Hello. I have this idea for an animated recreation of the first season of Sesame Street from 1969 to 1970. This project will have all the street scenes completely remade, with a new voice cast. The Muppets and cast skits will have the footage remade, while the audio will remain the same. However, I have found out that some skits from the first season have claimed to be lost, either completely or partially. If anyone has the lost Season 1 skits in its original English audio, then that would be fantastic. I look forward to hearing about these lost Season 1 skits. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
UncutIsSuperior, who will be providing the voice for Mr. Hooper, as well as all the Muppet characters whenever this new cast is needed.

Restoration Of The Star Wars Deleted Scenes
Time

Hello. I just want you to know that I’ve given up on making my Ultimate Edition of the Star Wars saga as a fan edit. Instead, I’ve decided to make it as an animated remake of each movie. Of course, the music will be the same, but the voices will be re-recorded. However, I still want the deleted scenes from the entire Original and Prequel trilogies restored for use in a film comic adaptation of the saga, so please let me know when they’re finished. Thank you.
