Team Negative1 - The Empire Strikes Back 1980 - 35mm Theatrical Version (Released)

Another 720p HD clip has been added to the gallery, there was some pink fade on all the composited FX shots, and we tried to color correct them:

=========================================================

Note that there is a lot of compression on the video, and the color correction is only for removing the pink from the effects. Skin tones and other colors appear muted.

We have sample clips and frames of every Reel from the movie.

If there is anything short that people suggest (30sec of less), we'll see what we can do, as we will be posting previews from throughout the movie.

Looks like we will need a password to view this, team-1.

It didn't ask for a password...just read "Test" or something similar.

This last video DID work...Nice before and after videos, by the way.

Ok, thank you for the confirmation. One last question, are you getting them in Full HD? One is in 1080p, and the others are 720p.

Thanks again for your patience.

We'll try to post more clips, as we have a lot more updates, and much more current videos available.

NP...-1

I do see Luke and Yoda in both 1080 or 720 and lower quality, and the space scene is in 720 and lower qualities also.

Thank you for all you guys are doing. The results are very exciting.

Well, it should ask you for a password. It works for us, because we posted the videos.

We'll keep trying. We thought that just going to basic site would prompt for a password. We'll have a look at the settings again.

Still trying:

We have added 2 more of the videos in 720p to the previous link. If someone can check them and report if they are working now.

It's a temporary video host, good for 2 weeks.

Team Negative1

Neither are working.

 

What error message are you getting? Do any of these work?

Never Say Never Again Eon Edition (* unfinished project *)

dlvh said:

bump...any new updates?

What exactly were you planning on doing really? Were you planning on doing a "Never Say McClory Again" type edit, or what? Did you have a set of music that you wanted/decided on using? 

Let me know..I may be able to help out. This project doesn't need a lot of color editing (IMHO) just maybe an overall warming-up, like you showed in one of your earlier posts....and a good Gun Barrel opening:

poita, what you're doing for the sake of film preservation is great, and I think I'm speaking for everyone here when I say I'm truly grateful, and I'm sure you'll preserve some important pieces of history using that thing.

I've seen lots of your posts around here and it's easy to tell you have a lot of knowledge so it's great that this scanner ends up in good hands.

Here Here..I second You_Too's post!

TRULY appreciate what you are doing for film preservation poita! 

I hope it arrives safe to you, and in good working order.

Any news/updates?

No not really, everything has been done for a long time now just sitting on my drives, we are currently testing the authoring package for Conan then we are going to go onto NOTLD 90 SE, then we will author up these 2, the other 2 are taking up way to much space on my drives and the authoring package is a lot trickier on those 2 then the SW projects so we are banging those 2 out first, plus I am going to start doing a new thing for you guys if it all works out, I am going to make a mobile version available, I just now made available the mobile version of our Conan project, search TPB handhelds and check it out, if it works and everyone likes this I will start doing this for all our Team Blu releases.

Sorry these are not done yet but I really need to clear off drive space really bad lol, all 3 of my drives are almost full, and these SW BD's are only BD25's, the other 2 I mentioned are BD50's.

 

Is there a chance, that you'd release a little snip-it/teaser of the eventual outcome, to hold us over until the time comes when you do the full release? Maybe if we all ask, pretty please?

Read this if you want to know what 20th Century Fox stupidly did to their entire Technicolor catalog (post #8):


http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/323596-help-required-what-happened-at-fox-in-the-1970s/?p=3956832

I didn't know this had happened in the 70's..the fire at George Eastman's house or the trashing of valuable film footage at FOX, how stupid of them!

I guess I hadn't realized also, that the digital format, isn't the end-all and be-all either. It is very susceptible to possibly being "out dated" and not backwards compatible. If you read the above linked articles, it does a lot better job of explaining it than I can. The point being, if we don't transfer these films to old time film stock, we may lose them forever.

Mike do you have plans on duplicating this film on to other film stock, or are you only going digital with the preservation? Is it even possibly to transfer a film unto new film stock nowadays?

IMHO nearly nothing beats a good old fashion Technicolor movie of the 30's, 40' or early 50's. There are so many good ones made during that Silver Screen era, but it is impossible to name them all. The beauty of a Technicolor movie can be a thrill to watch...another reason why this thread is so interesting, and it is my way of keeping, mostly on topic.

But, just in case you are not familiar with the beauty Technicolor can bring out in a "subject", here is Rita to demonstrate it...
