Cast Away 35mm preservation
#1
Cast Away is one of many Zemeckis best works and must be preserved.
Bluray itself is a decent transfer but it is a typical home video release and not as it looked on cinema in 2000.


Costs for this Russian print plus shipping is around $300.
Additional cost for the scanning will be around $230.
Total estimated cost: $530


Scanning will be 2K in 12-bit linear uncompressed DNGs and will be supervised and graded by @TomArrow.
Since this print has Russian dubbed sound, we will synchronize the DTS-HD MA track and hopefully in the future add the cinema DTS tracks.


If the project is fully collected, it will be started immediately as we ensure that the purchase of reels is shipped directly from the seller to the scan facility.

This preservation project will be shared with donators.


Pledges
$340 - Sebkarlbjork

Update - June 15
As you already know, the film reels are from Russia and contain Russian dubbed sound. I just want to convey that it is also a US movie reels that is on sale that includes Cinema DTS CDs. That being said, the Russian film reels are good enough for our purposes. If we are lucky the seller might help us with a digital copy of the discs, for a coin. Fingers crossed.

Update - June 17
An update. The film rolls are now purchased and are now being sent for scanning. I have pledged $170 to the project. This means that we are soon more than halfway to fully funded. Now only $210 remains. I will wait to contact anyone who has donated until everything is fully funded.

Update - June 21
Good news. We have now obtained the cinema Dts files from @Soundman.

Update - September 29
Good news. Cast Away print is now 100% scanned and is currently being rendered. Sample inbound.

This comparison of the same shot shows you just how much more information is visible on the print. I say, yes please! Put me down for £15. Smile

even if fullscreen has more image than widescreen, film still has much more... and great colors and contrast!

I didn't know there was a Full Screen HD version floating about. I'm still way more intrigued by the 35mm copy.

A sample will be sent out to all donors and then awaits a fully rendered 1.85:1 and Open Matte version to be enjoyed in all its glory.
