Ah gotcha. Do you know which section of the movie it is? Hopefully one that has the changes.
I own one of the original AOTC 35 mm film reels, so if I get in touch with one of my local theaters, I’ll do a capture for you guys to find the differences.
Oh wow how’d you acquire that?! Do you think you’d be able to get it scanned?
Thanks! I haven’t gotten to print it out yet but I’m pretty sure I got the sizes all correct
Hey just created a box set too. Feel free to print it out!
I had extra time today so I made a box set for the Blu rays. It’s almost exactly like the 97 vhs box set!
Just PM’d. Im glad this is being done! There is a 35mm scan of this being done so it could be used for reference for the subtitle timing and could be used to restore the shots only found on VHS/Laserdisc (i.e. removing the bridge and replacing the Twileks in the Senate scene)
jedit: Also for the shots that you used the blu ray footage, did you recrop the frame to match the HDTV? (the frame of the blu ray shows about 9% more)
Haven’t seen an update for a few weeks now on this?
What is the latest?
I’m not involved in this at all but last update was that the scanner got fixed and this should be done within 2 weeks…it’s been about 4 weeks now but I’m sure there should be an update soon.
Thanks! I did update the disc art which makes the old ones look terrible.
I updated the disc art, WAY better!
Someone put up their own version of an Episode III Revenge Of The Sith VHS cover, in the same thread as linked to above:-
https://i.redd.it/26bmu0xk4yjz.jpg (for the larger version)
Lol I made that but never posted here just on Reddit…I should probably have all of my usernames match across websites.
Edit: Just made one with my reddit name, I’ll probably use that one more as I really hate my username
Nope. My VHS tape was pretty different from the cam bootleg I have, I listed the differences above
Would you be able to upload the cam bootleg? I’m interested to check it out.
Scanner has been repaired, and ANH SE will hopefully be completed in the next two weeks, will then move onto TPM.
That’s fantastic to hear! I’m excited for both of the ongoing projects!
Just as a thank you I put together a poster to promote your TPM project.
I figured I’d ask here as Poita hasn’t been online in a while. How’s the 97 SW scan going?
These are really great! I love them!
Thanks I really appreciate it! I’m still not too sure on the disc art. Any ideas to improve it?
Love the disc art used and those simple yet elegant back covers - nice one 😃
Thanks man it means a lot! I was also able to do one for TPM.
Let me know what you think!
Hey guys, this is my first time posting some artwork I did and I hope you all enjoy them! When the 35mm scans actually get released I’ll replace the screenshots with actual stills from the 35mm films. I’m also going to do something similar for The Phantom Menace 35mm as that’s what I’m most excited for!
Edit: New disc art!
Edit 2: VHS Style box set
Also here’s the links to poita’s projects if you want to learn more about them:
Thread has been so strange in this last page I keep forgetting that I’m supposed to be in Poita’s thread…
phildesfr has just done quite a sweet set here - http://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/1144256
(and more of his top covers - http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Phildesfrs-Blu-Ray-Complete-Set/id/56080)
though I do like trillary dump’s SW back cover - and especially the discart, nice one 😃
Lol of course phildesfr made SE covers better than me. Mine are basically the VHS covers in Blu Ray format.
I just added the ESB cover and disc art to the album if you wanna check them out!
And thanks for liking something about my work haha
Yeah, you’ll be able to use the actual scan later for all those screenshots which will look a lot better.
I thought the same thing! Yeah right now they’re basically the images used on the vhs boxes. I’m not too sure how I feel on the disc being a 35mm reel, can I get your thoughts on that?
Just kinda add some elements from the existing Star Wars DVDs to have it look a bit more proper (Example: http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d167/dragon_1987/starwars_rotj_dvdcover.jpg)
Ah I gotcha. I figured I wouldn’t add some of those elements at the bottom as they’re already there on the front since I used the theatrical poster.
Needs a bit of work, but I like where it’s going.
Thanks! What would you suggest me changing?
Edit: I noticed the resolution is messed up in imgur. I’ll try fixing that!
Hey guys I made Blu Ray cover and disc art for SW 97 in anticipation for this project!
I’m planning on doing this with the rest of the trilogy AND with TPM project. Let me know if you like them and what I could do to improve upon them.
Edit: Just added in ESB. At this rate I should have ROTJ and possibly TPM done tomorrow.
Edit2: ROTJ is done!
Hey I just found out about this project a few days ago and I’m excited! It looks like things have slowed down. Would a donation still help?
Hi everyone! My new set is available in this new thread:
These are amazing! I can’t thank you enough! I’m bad at editing these kind of things but on the Rogue One back, it says “A Rebellion BUILD on Hope” instead of BUILT. Could you fix that for me? It bothers me more than it should lol.
The G said:
Incidentaly, I just finished designing the TFA and RO covers matching my despecialized OT ones, and also begun assembling covers for I, II, III.
I pondered for some time whether using unofficial title logos for TPM, AOTC and ROTS, but I eventually chose to keep true to the official logos (with the big Episode line), as it was the case for my OT.
I’ll be uploading this new set (Prelogy, Trilogy, TFA and RO) in a few days, with as much as possible of my EPS logo assets, so it can be of use to anyone designing their own set.
I too would love to see this. I love simplistic covers that shows you the movie poster and that’s all you need to know.
I hate the “Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital HD” text on top of TFA and RO box art, I know what’s in it you don’t have to remind me that it’s a Blu-ray, that’s why there’s the Blu-ray logo on top of the box…
I’m excited for these too! I’ve been checking his posts everyday hoping that they’ll be out. So far not yet.
