This site is devoted to PUGGO STRIKES BACK.
What is "Puggo Strikes Back"?
It is my telecine transfer and restoration of a 16mm print of Star Wars
Ep.V, The Empire Strikes Back.
The film was borrowed from a source who wishes to remain anonymous, and who
for now will go by the name Jaxxon. This is the same Jaxxon that
provided me with the two prints used to make the Puggo Grande.
Puggo Strikes Back discussion thread at originaltrilogy.com.
For the video capture, I used a 16mm Workprinter manufactured
by Roger Evans of Moviestuff.
The Workpriter was further modified to capture more of the frame, to
more effectively capture the scope print.
For the optical audio tracks, I used an ELMO 16CL projector.
I used CoolEdit to clean the audio, and Vegas Video to sync the tracks.
Note - this project is archival only, and I do not distribute my projects.
