interesting, there’s a 480p transfer on the spleen claiming to be the 1973 version, is that from this print? Perhaps it could be used as the source to created a despecialized version of American Graffiti.

The Spleen can go suck a fuck.
35mm print would be best. 1080p or 4K scan. Would it ever happen? That’d be neat.

The one on myspleen is a 35mm scan, it’s just 480p

That’s fucking hilariously stupid that it’s 480p, not 1080p or 4K.

Considering that the scan was made almost 40 years ago, I’m not sure what more you’d expect. Certainly don’t know why you feel so committed to shittalking it.

How do you know it’s a 40 year old scan?

There are some optical issues that simply would not happen on a remotely contemporary scan. It looks like a very old telecine with damage of its own rather than issues from an old film print (the print itself looks pretty good - all the visual issues aside from dirt and grain seem to be the fault of the scan being in poor condition). And the print is almost certainly pre-1978 because it has the same advertising tags that were on the original poster.

Could it have been transferred using sub-par homemade equipment?

looking for a prequel spoof
Time

Perhaps somebody will know more about this, but I remember seeing a prequel spoof done as an info-mercial for the mace windu lightsaber, even had a recording once and I thought it was on youtube but can’t find it now if it was. I remember it had the awful line “…it comes with a purple blade but it doesn’t mean your gay” and an accidental dismemberment in it. May have been spike tv, but I’m not sure. Any ideas what it was or where it might be found?

The Keep (1983) - 35mm Preservation Scan Opportunity (Released)
Time

just watched the grindhouse. It certainly works on large screen better than the so called hdtv broadcast. It’s definitely darker in some scenes, which isn’t necessarily a problem as it enhances the errieness of the movie in places, although some scenes are more awkward. I’ll probably play around with it in kdenlive for some adjustment.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films
Time

I only recently realized how much ham radio influenced the audio, only after the wife said my swan 500c makes people sound like star wars, did I see the connection in the battle of yavin. much of the radio dialog sounds distinctly like single sideband, and the probe droid sounds a lot like listening to someone “off frequency”.
