That’s what I thought. It looks great. Out of curiosity, what ever happened to SilverWook’s scan?
Looks awesome! Is this above scan ^ different from the one SilverWook did a couple of years back? The colors seem different.
Hello everybody who is interested in this project and/or donated. Apologies for being absent, not getting a copy of the scan to everyone who donated, and not giving status updates, been extremely busy.
I’ve been trying to get in touch with a colorist I got in contact awhile ago but no response. Thank you to The Aluminum Falcon for sharing with anyone that donated for this. I am new to all of this.
Of course, the reels were scanned and encoded digitally a long time ago for any donors to view and enjoy. To my eye though, it needed a lot of color correcting, some grain removal, etc. I wanted to make it a perfect product before sending it out to donors. I lost contact with some people I was working with and the project went by the wayside for a bit.
I believe I still have the hard drive with the scanned movie on it to share, but it seems the user The Aluminum Falcon has taken care of that. Sorry for the delay and PM me any questions. I hope to work on this project as much as possible in the future, but we’ll see.
Is this project dead? Was really looking forward to it.
Update on Eyes Wide Shut 35mm Print-
The Film has been scanned and is being sent to me and an early collaborator soon. Unfortunately, the scan turned out to be 1.85:1, not 1.33:1. Although, I looked at a preview of the scan and the colors, grain and all look truly beautiful. This project was a bit more expensive than I expected, though.
The total costs of obtaining the reels, scanning, shipping, drives etc. was around $962.
So far, I have around 9-10 interested donators who have given around $30 each. If anyone is interested in seeing this 35mm scan and funding this project, private message me.
So far, I have around $230. Let’s reach the goal of $730. Private message me if interested. This scan is definitely worth seeing!
My current goal is to reach $500 (for reels, scanning, shipping costs etc.) I currently have a few people willing to pitch in around $30. PM me if you want to see Eyes Wide Shut in a whole new light and are interested in funding this project!!
I won the auction and am sending the print to a lab soon I hope. If anyone is interested in funding, private message me.
I currently obtained a 35mm print of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide shut, the print is located in Italy, I’m in the states. The print was $203. I could have it shipped to me, or wherever people know a good place to get it scanned. If anyone is interested in funding this project to get this scanned and released, please let me know. It would be awesome to see this feature in HD (or even 4K?) in 4:3 aspect ratio with it’s true colors, whether it be ‘grindhouse’ or a cleaned up version.
Private message me if you want to contribute money towards this project!
Great to hear!
As far as the print, I’m waiting to get pictures of the scans as the seller only has pictures of the cans and reels. I need to see if it’s in 4:3 and doesn’t have faded colors. As far as bidding, it’s at around $120 right now, and two other people are bidding and I have been outbid.
Once I get the pictures I’ll let you know if I want to go forward. Anyone who has interest in this, funding would be greatly appreciated!
I’m thinking about purchasing it. If I win the bid, it’ll probably be somewhere under $200. If I do get the negatives, I’ll keep updating. My main interest in this preservation/scan is seeing the film in its original 4:3 aspect ratio in HD.
Is the 4:3 HD version available to watch anywhere? I’ve always wanted to see it.
I don’t know anything about scanning or anything like that, or even how to to about getting that done. I could buy/pitch in for all of the reels and if anyone knows how to get this done, I could ship to them.
Would someone be interested in getting this and starting a project?
There is a 35mm full print of Eyes Wide Shut up on Ebay currently. It’s up for bid with just 3 days remaining, at around $100 as of right now, it’s from Italy.
I know there’s currently a project for a 35mm scan of The Shining, so this would be cool to explore as well and see Eyes Wide Shut in its open matte beauty.
I don’t know any other details on it, but if someone wants to check it out, it’s up there now!
There is a 35mm print of Eyes Wide Shut up on Ebay right now!! From Italy, 3 days left for bidding!!
Is there an estimated release date on this? Can’t wait.
Any updates on this?? Everyone has so much to deal with these days, I know…but I was hoping for this release for Halloween 20202. This release would mean so much for us fans during these times! How is it coming along? Cannot wait, love this movie too much.
When do you think this will be released? Super excited. Also how will we be able to obtain it?
