It’s been a pretty fun week here so far at Thunderbean. I’ve gotten back from a trip to New York to scan a lot of films, plus I had the chance to have a nice dinner and conversation with my friend and Cartoons On Film Blu-ray Guru Tommy Stathes, along with longtime friend Nelson Hughes. I’ve been sorting out all the stuff for the special sets over this past week and working on building things quickly to get to the next projects— and there’s so many things going on!
Our fearless leader, Jerry, is in New York this week again, and as I write this at 10:22 PM he’s waiting for me to get it together. Instead of spending a bunch of time writing, I recorded a short zoom video to showcase some of the Van Beuren Tom and Jerry project we’ve been working on — and are almost finished with after several years. Over the next week or so I hoped to have all of it wrapped, or close. There’s one other piece of material that just became available, so if we’re able we’ll upgrade that one film, but otherwise it’s started to get to the point of building it into a final set, on two discs. I think this short video gives you some idea of what things are looking like and how part of the process sort of goes once things are somewhat cleaned up.
Let me know what you think in the comments, and have a good week all!
