The Spongebob Squarepants Movie - 35mm Re Creation
Time

Update on my version: I tweaked the colors a little bit, and I also added grain using the Vegas “Film Effects” plugin. I also found a clip in the film’s OAR, 1.85:1, and it appears to have more picture on the Blu-ray; the BD is open matte, so I matted my version to 1.85:1.

Decided to take a stab at this myself, and I managed to get something that I think looks good. Not sure how accurate it is, but I made a LUT using a Blu-ray screenshot of the “Morning Routine” sequence and the 35mm trailer screenshot of the same frame with DrDre’s Color Matcher, and applied it to the whole film (except for the opening and closing logos), then adjusted the colors to make it look “right;” pretty much all I had to do with that was lower the reds slightly, though.

Here’s some comparisons:
http://www.framecompare.com/image-compare/screenshotcomparison/D6PPPNNX - Not an exact match, but a lot closer. Almost looks like the Blu-ray has a blue tint, to be honest, but I’m not quite sure if I’m really seeing that or if I’m imagining it.

http://www.framecompare.com/image-compare/screenshotcomparison/JM22CNNU - With this one, I’ve got a press image with noticeably different color timing from the official BD. My version doesn’t match that one exactly, barely looks similar honestly, but it looks a lot closer; leading me to believe I’m at least heading in the right direction.

http://www.framecompare.com/image-compare/screenshotcomparison/D6PZLNNX - Here’s a comparison from one of the live action scenes. I’m honestly the least sure of if this is accurate, but looking at this it definitely looks like the Blu-ray has a very slight blue tint. Not quite sure though; either way, the one with the LUT applied looks a lot more vibrant, in my opinion.

I’ve only experimented with the colors, so far, haven’t seen what it looks like with a grainplate applied yet.

REQ: Muppet Christmas Carol Widescreen w/ deleted song and Dir. commentary!
Time

Okay so update on the project that I swear I posted about somewhere on here (perhaps on the other thread, I remember there being two different threads for this):

I plan to redo the project using my own 1080p Disney+ capture of the scene… Have not compared it visually to the iTunes one I’ve got but I do remember checking and the iTunes one was missing some frames if I recall, so this one SHOULD be better. Not sure when I’ll do this but it most likely will be sometime soon.
I might also experiment with color matching the film to the LaserDisc, using my own transfer of the disc and the DrDre Color Matching Tool, but we’ll see if that gets anywhere. If I do, I’ll upload both a version with the LD color grading and a version with the BD color grading.

Sorry for the delay by the way!

The look I am aiming to recreate was very easily obtainable in After Effects. Essentially by adjusting curves/levels, compressing highlights, and adding gate weave/grain I was able to produce an authentic look that I imagine comes close to how the movie appeared in many theatres in 2004.

Looks like screenshot comparison deleted it, could you reupload a new comparison thing?

Would anybody be able to get the scene in HD (1080p if possible) from iTunes extras or Moviesanywhere?
I tried to screen record it from iTunes using a cracked version of Bandicam, but unfortunately my computer isn’t powerful enough, and it seems like a direct rip isn’t possible due to iTunes extras all being on some server somewhere with no ability to download them.
