Cinerama Inc. Scans 70mm Film at Crest Hollywood
Dave Strohmaier is giving you a first look at remastering some rare 70mm Films

Cinerama's Russian Adventure: (all 65mm)

Frame sample from scan by Dave Strohmaier

We did the tests in the middle of September 2011 at Crest on the 65mms and this is what we found. After you read each section look at the video sample link.

Negs were made (""Windjammer" style") but in 65mm not 35mm by Film Efx. of Hollywood in 1965.

Also this is the negative not like the "Windjammer" was (from 35mm faded pink print) so much more color can be recovered. The "Windjammer" style grain will be present however due to it originating from a 6 perf print source material so there is extra contrast built into this neg.

The areas we spot checked does have color mis matching across all three panels in many scenes (to be expected!) but that was present when they made this 65mm from a 6 perf print (using the Lynwood Dunn "process shot" system or ""Windjammer" style" compositing process system") Some mis aligned panels and fluttering images throughout- some we can fix others we can't. Some of these "built in" panel alignments have missing information such as when going by a rock or a pole and it disappears in the panel line then comes out the other side. - this neg should be sonic cleaned.

Frame sample from scan by Dave Strohmaier

With some sperate panel color correction/balancing -grain reduction, flicker removal- we can fix this title up somewhat to make it more show able but it won't look exactly like remaster of TIC does --- but should be a slight bit better than our remaster of "Windjammer" looks. Soundtrack will come from the Bradford's 70mm 6 track mag stripe print.

Join lines will not be improved that much more due to miss alignment when it was photographed in the 3 images in one frame process.
