Boomerang streaming captures
Time

Hi. I’m looking for a way to capture successfully videos from the Boomerang streaming website. I tried both ReplayMedia Catcher and Internet download Manager unsuccessfully, Does anybody here know how to do this ?

Here’s a link for exemple: https://watch.boomerang.com/watch/1/1 (be careful, only accessible from the USA only. I had to use a VPN to access it).

Thanks to answer

There’s a great copy on the spleen.

I can’t find it there! I’m logged in but i can’t find it!

Check the PM I sent you bud 😃

Hi. I’ll be interested to get a copy of this scan myself if anyone here has it. Don’t hesitate to PM me please.

Hi. Sorry to bring back this old thing, but I was wondering where I can find the Criterion audio track commentary now so I can include it with my Blu-ray.

Ok, thanks

Thanks to answer

I should still have it up on Mega and I’ll share a link. It’s either AC3 or I dunno. Wasn’t there another commentary besides the Criterion one?
I’ve many more Laserdisc commentaries.

For King Kong (1933), there’s the Criterion LD, but also the Image Intertainment one

Do you have those two ?

I shared the link to Mega for the Criterion commentary in a PM to you. I’ll look to see if I have the Image Entertainment commentary on my server.

How to build a film scanner (need advise & help, please)
Time

Hi people. Sorry if I havent been here for a long time, but some other personnal commitments prevented me to do so, sadly (not to mention unemployment and money problems.

Poita, you said earlyer that the first thing to do if someone wants to get serious about this, is to get a projector. Aside of ebay (where price often inflated and out of reach) are there other places where we can go for a good purchase of 16mm & 35mm projector ? Also, which models exactly would you recommand to get for both format so the mods can be made in better way ? Personally I’ll add also fro portability, but is this even possible at that point with the add-on equipment ?

Thanks to answer

Fantasia
Time

TonyWDA said:

Last summer, the MoMA screened a 35mm I.B. Tech print of Fantasia… twice. Naturally, I attended both screenings knowing it’d be forever until I’d see the film in that format again. x)

Before going to either screening, I went in ready to take mental notes in order to properly compare the color palette from the 35mm print to that of the Blu-ray. (I believe somebody on the Blu-ray.com forums pointed out that same 1990/2010 shot comparison, titanic.)

On the 35mm I.B. Tech print, that Toccata shot was extremely close to what is seen on the Blu-ray. No darkened backgrounds, all blue. In addition, most all of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Dance of the Hours, The Nutcracker Suite– all nearly identical to the Blu-Ray. Hardly anything was difficult to make out and the colors were incredibly vibrant. The other segments, Rite of Spring, The Pastoral Symphony, A Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria, I swear were somewhere in between the 1990 and 2010 restorations. Some shots looked like the BD, others more like the murky 1990 print. I can’t explain it, but that’s exactly what I remember thinking after walking out of both screenings. (God, I wish there were pictures of what I saw readily available!)

Now, does this mean that the Superscope print, therefore, should line up exactly w/ what I saw last summer? Not necessarily. Especially considering the print I saw was from 1969, and I don’t know enough about the Technicolor process (or what the original Fantasia negatives even looked like) to call out an “accurate print” when I see one. But I’m just throwing this all out there for anybody who perhaps heard of the screening and was unable to attend for whatever reason. In any case, the Superscope stills posted so far all look incredible and I can’t wait to finally see this print in full.

(If nobody can tell by this point, Fantasia ranks as my absolute favorite Disney film, so this entire project means a great deal to me. Major kudos to everybody involved. ^-^)

Hi. About IB prints, it’s important to note that this print might date from several generations and since then, the color maight have been manipulated several times (among othe factor). At this point, I don’t think we’ll be able to get it 100% accurate with all the elements we have (I might be wrong, though).

On the Deems Taylor vs. Corey Burton’s voice work, It’s sad that some parts are missing/dammaged, but at least we got something. The things they could have put more efforts to are: 1) Chose a better sounding actor that could have sounded more like Taylor (Burton doesn’t hold a candle on that, but then, Disney decided the cheaper/easier way. 2) The sound editor(s) could had put more effort on the accountic to sound more ancient (for authenticity’ sake with the original elements). After all, it’s a 1940 movie, even restaured, make it sound as such without travesting it to something else it’s not, and I don’t think most of the targeted public would mind that, anyway.

Now, on this project, who’s doing what and what’s the update on this ? Sorry to ask, but it got a bit mixed up along the way and I haven’t been here for a while for personnal maters.

Thanks to answer

There is also a wealth of information on DIY film scanning at the http://forums.kinograph.cc/ forum. One particularly generous contributor reminds me of Poita’s expertise shared here at OT.

Yeah, I know. The only problem, is it’s way too technical to the point I couldn’t make sense on anything to begin with. That’s why I asked for some help in order to figure out most of everything. Poita was mostly the only one savvy enough to answer, no question on that. That’s why I would like to continue with him, if it’s still possible. BTW, thanks to remind me of Kinograph. I completely forgot about this. I know I posted once on it, but I completely forgot to check back (thanks to other projects brewing). Let’s just hope that Poita will answer to this thread. Because, apparently, he is the only one here who can provide the necessary answers with his experience & knowledge.

Star Wars 1977 releases on 35mm

poita said:

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I am rebuilding my workstation, and will continue my work, I just won’t be on the forums any more, and will be focusing on one thing at a time.
None of the scans or WIP will go to waste, and much of it will be helping other projects that are already in progress with others, both here and outside the forums, it will all be put to good use I assure you 😃

Indeed. Let’s hope that the scans will still be avalaible and also your precious knoledge & help (if you still can provide it).

I have a couple of technical posts to finish off in the tech forums, and then it will be radio silence. Once any of the projects are complete, you will hear about them I am sure.

Does this includes the one made on how to buils a film scanner (http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/How-to-build-a-film-scanner-need-advise-and-help-please/id/45977) ? I do hope so.

Time

Like some other members here, I wasn’t aware of the full situation about Poita (especially recently). Peter, I wish you the best of luck with both your family and professional life. It’s such a shame all of this mess happened to you all at once. Like many here, I wish I could do something that might help you out at all, especially for everything you did here (and elsewhere). You’ll be greatly missed, but your familly is much more important than a hobby.

Take care & best wishes.

Michael.

Long lost original (first world release) french dub from Fantasia finally found
Time

Yes. For a long time, this original, earlyest (circa 1940s, probably 1946-48) french dub was considered lost decades ago because of several edits following the different releases. Nearly every classic Disney pre-1970s were always dubbed for several reasons for foraing market. Some of those have actuall 3 to 4 dubs in different counties.

About Fantasia and this french dub. This is sourced fron a 35mm print belonging to a private collector. The people who discovered this are all Disney fans or french dub fans. They of course, do this against Disney approval and will only be presented to some fans in private circles like fanres & originaltrilogy. More details about the print & restoration coming soon.

This project might be really interesting for Poita’s restoration as a nice addition and supplematal element for his restoration. I corresponded with the guy and I think he’s trustworthy. Would everyone (interested) here agre if I share Poita’s project with his by inviting him here ?

What do you think ?

Thanks to let me know

This is the lens you require, you will also need a c-mount adapter and a selection of extension tubes/rings
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/Schneider-Componon-S-50mm-f2-8-enlarging-lens-excellent-condition-/231697621349

The projectors will no longer work as projectors after the modification, they will only be good for scanning.

So noted.

The link you provided show this: “This page does not exist. Please continue to shop on the eBay.com.au home page.” Any other link ?

Yes, you will need a different projector for each format, as the film is a different physical size.
Updating to 4K is as easy as swapping out the 2K sensor for a 4K one.
The other part I forgot is the lens, it will be around USD200-500 depending on your luck in finding one.

Any examples on those lenses that I hane to get ?
