The 25 year old Yorktown: A Time to Heal master 3/4" Umatic SP tapes completed its final digitization this afternoon at 3:35 PM. The tapes underwent an extensive restoration process which started June 15, 2012. After an exhaustive search, DC Video of Burbank, CA was chosen as the facility to digitize the Yorktown Masters. DC Video is known for restoring Apollo Lunar Landing tapes for NASA. The process involved baking the master tapes at 130 degrees to re-adhere the magnetic particles to the base. The result is a sparkling 10 bit uncompressed master looking better than the original tapes. More information about DC Video can found at www.dcvideo.com.

Bravo! The picture looks pretty clear!

This was perhaps addressed earlier, but do any of the original film elements exist?

Yes they do. Not sure what condition they are all in now, as it was shot on super 8 over 25 years ago. The film was transferred to 3/4" Umatic SP tapes back in the late 90s. From what I have seen, it was a very good transfer.

I was asking because I wondered if it would be possible to scan the original film into hi-def without the intermediate step of the Umatic SP, but I realize there are probably cost issues with that.

Huge cost issues. It would cost a lot. But this looks really crisp, and I think people will be very pleased.

This is the first of five posters, created by the talented Josh Ginter, for the Star Trek fan film "Yorktown: A Time to Heal". More to come!

This is really an amazing piece of Trek history and I love every update. The behind the scenes photos are pretty cool and I am glad we have you guys passionately restoring this.

Status Update!

Just getting back to Toronto from my 2 week stay in LA. Met with Stan Woo, and received all of the original footage needed to begin editing the film. A 2nd trailer will be cut this month using the cleaned up materials. Still a fair bit of work to do before we post the film, but realistically, it looks like it will be done in the next 12 to 16 months.

A 3rd Klingon scene is being filmed this November in Vancouver. The short scenes that take place on the Yorktown bridge (at the beginning and end of the film) still need to be filmed to complete the movie, and there is still discussion as to whether this will be done using green screen, or a pre-existing bridge set. Some of the ADR in the film for the secondary characters needs to be re-recorded, and we may need to use new actors in order to get that done.

That looks a lot like a Sandman gun in that last screengrab.
