From the screengrabs, it definitely looks like it’s from the same source as the VCD. How complete is this, does it include the end credits, or did they have to turn off the camcorder to avoid being caught by the cinema staff? 😄

I figured it’d be the same, but hey I still think it’s cool! It cuts off about 5 secs into the credits

Phantom Menace bootleg VHS preservation
Time

Hi guys!

I’ve had this bootleg TPM tape (which was probably sold on Canal Street) that has a cam recording on it for a while now and decided to digitize it for the sake of preservation! I think it’s the same as the bootleg VCD (someone can fact check me on that) but I figured it’d be cool to post here.

Pictures of the VHS tape:

Screencaps:

PM me to get a dl of this capture. The file is 2.78 GB. Also, if anyone wants to upload the cap on any other sites (i.e. The Spleen) you have my blessing for you to do so.

Thanks!

Am I the only one frustrated that it just looks like more of the same? With both the other trilogies, the characters would look fairly different with each installment so that we got excited to see how they’ve evolved since the last movie: Anakin going from little kid to powerful Jedi Knight, Luke going from white tunic-wearing farmboy with a blaster and blue lightsaber to a black-clad Jedi ready to take on the Empire with a green saber.

Here it’s Rey, Poe and Finn…again. Rey’s got the same outfit, same hairdo, same lightsaber, same wide-eyed intense expression on her face as ever. Finn’s hair is a little longer, but that’s it. Poe, again, exactly the same. Kinda disappointed, I gotta admit.

I feel the same as you, but I understand why the characters look the same for the most part. It’s because the whole trilogy takes place within the span of about a year, so there’s not a whole lot of in-universe time for the characters to change their looks drastically.

Hi-res images of the GOUT DVD disc art?
Time

I just burned 4K77 and 4K83 to blu ray and wanted to add the GOUT artwork to it but I’m having trouble finding the correct images on google. ROTJ was easy to find but I cannot find the art used on the discs for ANH and ESB.

Jedit: disregard this post I just ended up scanning the discs and using photoshop to remove the logos

The Phantom Menace on 35mm

Let me know which reel that would be on (Reels are approx 20 minutes long) as I am not familiar with the movie itself at all.

Here’s the timecodes for the changes that would be needed to be scanned if you chose to do so:

01:19:14 frame 6 - shot of Qui-Gon’s “much more complicated” line and wipe transition to a shot of Palpatine’s quarters
01:25:40 frame 17 - Orn Free Ta’s human aides
01:33:26 frame 11 - hyperspace jump and the wipe to the Theed palace

It all could be on reel 4 and 5 or just 5. Hope this helped and hope that you’re feeling better!

I really don’t think it’s worth worrying about doing that footage, not simply for a reconstruction of the theatrical version, better that we get another print and start fresh.

I actually think they would be valuable because the footage from the 35mm can be combined with the existing SD footage to make it blend in way better with the HD footage in a reconstruction.

Jedit: Maybe ZigZig could help clarify if it’ll be useful or not since he’d be the one doing the merging
