We have good news (or probably bad news for all of those who replied in various forums to our openness in a less than friendly tone and with unfounded assertions): We've talked a lot with our two labs in the last few days and ultimately decided to abandon all reason and sanity and start the SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS transfer from scratch. This means a new scan with optical scratch removal tools to reduce defects, scanning the entire content of the 2P-frame, new filtering of the remaining defects without de- and regraining. In the end, this means a bitter loss of a couple thousand euros, 3.5 weeks of lifetime for the manual restoration that was done on the old master (plus the time for the manual restoration of the new one), but in exchange, being able to release the discs in all conscience. And our reputation is always more important to us than profit. There will definitely be more small remaing defects than in the first transfer, but therefore the film's naturalness is retained -- the way we and most of you like it. The release will have to be pushed back further into the summer, though. More information will follow.

So if Short Night is delayed can something else be brought forward in the schedule?

Kudos to you for taking this approach, not many other companies would take this this much care about their products.

It is amazing what you're doing but at the same time, a shame you've capitulated to the vocal minority. Nevertheless, you demonstrate why you've got such a loyal band of followers, myself included!

Well, we weren't really satisfied with the whole first restoration anyway... So it wasn't a complete capitulation... :)

Can't wait. Seems like ages since San Babila arrived.

September 9 is the new date (shop.dtm.at, beyond-media.at) but it has to be confirmed by Camera Obscura today.

To shorten the wait, we decided to post a few screenshots of the new SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS transfer. We tried to match the old screenshots as perfectly as possible so you can do comparisons.

The restoration of SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS is finally completed! One Italian lab, two German ones (automatic and manual retouching) and us for the fine tuning „smile“-Emoticon 3 additional frame-by-frame passes for the correction of almost 100.000 scratches and other remaining unpretty blemishes) have fought for months now through the hell of the film's worn and torn negative. The result is absolutely fantastic, and we can now (extremely) happily proclaim that SHORT NIGHT looks just as good as our other discs. Now we're starting the testing phase and then our hitherto most elaborate release is finally done!

It's looking great. Cannot wait for this. I assume if you're testing now that the street date isn't the 7th? Which works out better for me, as I don't have any money until the 15th. ;D
