Ah gotcha. How much in donations do you think will help get things going? Or possibly just have the changed footage scanned first so there can be a proper theatrical reconstruction until the print can be fully scanned?
So I noticed that it’s been a while since an update for this project. Is this still going to go underway after SW 97 or is it being pushed back for that new ESB print?
I made 1-3 disc art that matches the V1 artwork if anyone was wanting it as bad as me!
I’m glad more people seem to be interested in preserving the theatrical versions of the Prequels! How easy would it be to take the HDTV (dvd) version of AOTC and fix the audio changes so it’s the digital theatrical version?
And someone on the spleen restored the theatrical version of ROTS using the HDTV version and just putting the wipe back in so there’s definitely ways to get the original versions of the Prequels recreated.
Oh cool! It’s not a big change but certainly one that should be preserved. If you look into how much it would cost to clean and scan that reel I might just have to help fund it 😃
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.
