Back again !
In a few hours ( I hope) I will try to match Oliver Judd's screenshot from QT and then restored splice frames to the correct colourspace.
(On the old board I was guessing that a ITU-Rec. BT.601 <-> ITU-Rec. BT.709 conversion issue might be the case.)
Let's see...

SirQuacky helps out here by posting a few HD clips from the recent SS/KA 35mm transfer:

These are all more compressed than the actual footage, and don't include the larger, longer files (since Mediafire only accepts files under 200MB).

All of those HD clips looked much, much better than the Mark III. I can't wait to see the final product. :gopher:

Damn! now I can see all the little details that went into those scenes.
No wonder it took so long to make!

Did a little editing on the HD material tonight; need to do a little more. First scenes of the film looking good; some shots nearly dirt-free now.

Wow, the KA footage looks great. Obviously there will need to be some cleanup work on the footage to remove some of the dust, workprint editing marks and jump cuts but, other than that the footage looks remarkable.

The footage is unreal. The excitement is electric.

The footage looked rather dull on my screen. Can that be fixed with colour correction?

It can and probably will, although I think most of it is rather good.

Alex Williams posts about the new version of The Animator's Survival Kit for the iPad, which will include animated examples and the first release of Richard's new short Circus Drawings, coming in late March around Richard's 80th birthday.

Looks like we just missed (on Sunday) a free screening of Raggedy Ann & Andy at UCLA.

And for those who haven't heard ...
http://www.92y.org/Tribeca/Events-Detai ... ision.aspx

To celebrate the upcoming 80th birthday of Richard Williams, 92Y Tribeca will present three evenings of screenings devoted to his work:

Wednesday, February 27: A screening of Who Framed Roger Rabbit on 35mm. (It is the film’s 25th anniversary this year.)

Thursday, February 28: An evening of Richard Williams rarities including his ambitious early short The Little Island (1958). The program will be introduced by NY animation director (and former Williams employee) Michael Sporn.

Friday, March 1: A screening of the documentary Persistence of Vision, about Williams’ decades-long attempt to create his personal masterpiece The Thief and the Cobbler. Amid Amidi will hosta discussion with the director of the documentary, Kevin Schreck, after the 7pm screening.

92Y Tribeca is located in Manhattan (200 Hudson Street, NY, NY 10013). Tickets for each screening are $12 and available on the 92Y Tribeca website.

Will "Persistence of Vision" ever be viewable to the general public aside from festivals?
