Awesome job! Are you going to upload there somewhere? I think this would fit nicely on MySpleen.

Most definitely put this on the Spleen

I’d love to! Unfortunately I don’t have a MySpleen account, nor do I know how to acquire one at this time. If anyone could help me out in this regard, I’d gladly share all my current projects with that community!

Best Regards,

This looks quite good. What are you other plans?

Thank you so much! There are a lot of other obscure projects released on laserdisc that never appeared in any other format, so I’m interested in archiving that sort of stuff.

Beyond that I have projects brewing that involve some old television documentary programs, a full uncut version of a late 80s anime that hasn’t been released properly, and a preservation involving a film by John Waters.

Best Regards!

Obscure LD to BD Preservations - Vol. 1 (Released)
Time

I’ve recently transferred 4 OOP LD films I own onto a dual-layered BD with a pretty high bitrate. Probably too high for it’s own good cause my ISO clocks at nearly 48GB.

Over 200 minutes of material.

All black & white footage has been color corrected to remove any odd color banding that existed in the original LD release.

FILMS INCLUDED ARE:

  • To New Horizons: Ephemeral Films (1931-1945) - A collection of PSAs, animations & industrial films.
  • You Can’t Get There From Here: Ephemeral Films (1946-1960) - A collection of PSAs, animations & industrial films.
  • Two Moon July (1986) - Underground art & performance video featuring the likes of Laurie Anderson, David Byrne & Philip Glass.
  • To Fly! (1976) - IMAX Documentary Short film.

Main menu available for film selections. No other menu but there are meticulous chapter markers have been placed for each short film for quicker access.

I’m very new to preserving laserdiscs, this is my first project with hopefully more to come, but feel free to PM me with any questions if you find this content interesting.

Best Regards,

HOLLYWOOD CINECON 2019
Time

Wanted to see if anyone on this site has ever traveled out to Hollywood to visit Cinecon. It’s a convention that screens super rare silent films and even nitrate prints! On the show floor collectors come from all around to sell old movie posters ranging back to the 1920s, props, original shooting scrips, and lobby cards. So many lobby cards. A couple years ago someone was selling an original print of “Revenge of the Jedi”. Just seeing that poster displayed was a trip. This year I stumbled upon an 8mm copy of one of the animated sections from the notoriously banned Disney film Song of the South. The whole place is a treasure trove of nostalgia and artifacts from all over the history of cinema.

If anyone else has ever visited this convention, what kind of crazy stuff did you see? Or do you know of any other big film conventions that go so far as to sell private film reels and original poster prints?

Hi All!

New to the site but have been a fan for a while and a fan of Star Wars for a long, long time so it’s very cool to finally explore OriginalTrilogy.com as it should be explored, by interacting with the community and sharing my affinity for all things SW, cartoons, classic films, fan edits, etc.
