Update on remastered "The Golden Head" and "Cinerama's Russian Adventure"
Dave Strohmaier is giving you a second look at remastering some rare 70mm Films

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Dave StrohmaierDate: 22.11.2011
We are almost done with the 2K "The Golden Head" remastering and it looks pretty darn good. The original negatives were a mixture of Technirama (35mm 8 perf with an anamorphic and MCS 70mm or 65mm negatives).

Quite unusual mixture of negative elements. The Technirama negative was cut in the auto-select format so that meant every dissolve has to be re-created for the final 2K master, but the dissolves have a first generation look to them because of this. Sound is great as well.
70mm print - Before

We were surprised that there was not some kind of a 65mm negative created out of the Technirama footage before printing in 70mm. All our elements are o-negs and cut auto-select which is difficult to sync up the sound (all had to be "lip synced") and every dissolve re created.
Telecine from Technirama 35mm 0-negs and color work now looks like this - After

We did find YCMs in 65mm of everything but then you can't telecine it and we did not have the budget for scanning. The Tecnirama negs were most of the show so we used that as our guide for the aspect ratio of the overall show. There were strange reflections at the top of each Technirama shot from a matte box or something so we used that as our guide for cropping the top of the frame.

"Cinerama's Russian Adventure"

Here are some samples of "Russian Adventure" color so far. Same as the clips from the Bradford screen taken a few years ago for the Lost For Years, Orphan Films Discovered Abandoned in Hollywood Basement story. Check them out for "before an afters".
