HELP RESTORE STYLE WARS

Recommended Posts

Originally edited to its 69 minute length from about 30 hours. Hmmmmmmmm. Release it all.

 

I don't really understand this completely. My friend has it on DVD, so it has to be digitized. Is this like when the first 3 star wars came out a second time?

"Twenty five years after its initial release there is still a strong, global demand for the film. In an effort to keep up with this demand we must be able to offer the film in the the most up-to-date formats. We are embarking on a project to restore STYLE WARS and bring it up to the highest technical standards available today in order to create a High Definition edition of the film. We will be transferring the original 16 mm negativeinto full HD 1080p while cleaning and restoring the film during the process. The HD master will be better, sharper and more brilliant than the original. From it we can strike new prints, author new DVDs and participate in the digital economy."

 

 

 

It's the preserve it for the future.

so wait these guys are asking for donations so they can in turn sell me a far more superior product at a higher cost?

 

whats the logic behind this?

 

i know how important the preservation of historical data is however i am not in tune to why we should contribute 500k to a foreign cause.

What people are missing is the main point behind this move.

While a DVD is cool and all, the original film it was shot on is much higher quality.

The film also has more detail than the DVD and was transfered to digital and video format a long time ago on less advanced equipment.

They are attempting to preserve that high quality or the highest quality possible.

It's like having the original Mona Lisa to look at as opposed to a camera phone shot of it.

 

If you've ever seen a blue ray remastered version of an older movie you'll understand.

It basically puts way more detail and better colors/quality into it making it look like it was just shot on advanced equipment.

I saw dawn of the dead in a remastered 1080p HD version and it blew my mind how awesome it looked.

It's very expensive to do, and Style wars isn't a commercially successful movie that would warrant spending all that money to turn a profit on HD sales.

 

This will allow them to publish a 1080p version which might not be that big a deal right now.

But imagine 20 years down the road, nobody will want a low def version like the DVD is now.

Personally, as it stands right now, I don't buy or download anything less than 720p HD.

Reading the replies I'm convinced channel zero is getting full of douchebags who never wrote/write and straight up fucking toys.

 

Know your history, whoever disagree, I pity the fool like Mr. T. - MF Doom

Mercer is on point with his replys, while I can understand people on here not wanting to contribute to it, it is a really important piece of history to something that we all love, and it would be a shame to not see it in its highest possible potential.

$500,000 is really not a lot of money if people from all around the world would donate. Im sure they would gather up the money in no time without this film alot of peoples graffiti career would have never taken off
