Hey, does anyone I follow do film archival?

There are negatives for five episodes of Space Patrol on ebay.

If I know anyone who is able to do careful, high quality HD scans of these reels, I'll buy them and work with you to get them archived.

I bought the films. I'm reaching out to two digitization groups to see if either is interested in working with me at a price I'm willing to pay.

On the one hand, I hope that this isn't a regular occurrence. On the other hand, it would be really cool to be responsible for the preservation of a significant number of public domain content.

One group that came highly recommended offered to do it for a piece I can't beat, so that's awesome.

If we're lucky, this will be the best these episodes have ever looked.
