Listen to this great interview with Henry Chalfant from Sports Byline USA (heard on numerous Sirius Satellite Radio channel 122, CRN Digital Talk Radio Networks channel 2, and the Armed Forces Radio Network). He addresses the making of the film, “Style Wars”, the process of restoration, and extras on the Blu-ray.
Here is more information about the restoration from the Kickstarter campaign:
“The original footage is damaged and fading. Fortunately, it will be possible to repair using digital technology. It will cost $28,000 to save and restore the outtakes. Saving the best outtakes is an important component of our overall project to restore the entire negative of the film and make an HD master which will preserve the record of the first painted trains in their original vivid colors.”
