Urgent - help restore SEPTEMBER STORM 3-D and SEA DREAM 3-D

September Storm was really the last major two-strip 3-D release, and the only one to employ
anamorphic optics for a 2.35:1 screen ratio. This historically important and entertaining 3-D film from
1960 will soon be coming to Blu-Ray thanks to the 3-D Film Archive and the 3-D Space Museum. The
kickstarter campaign reached its $25,000 goal within two weeks, a testament to the confidence all
vintage 3-D fans have in the restoration and exhibition work of Bob Furmanek, Greg Kintz and Jack
Theakston of the 3-D Film Archive. Their track record has been impeccable, and the quality of their
work has been consistently outstanding.

Unfortunately, the campaign has stalled only $1,000 short within five days of reaching its "stretch goal"
to restore the special-venue 3-D short SEA DREAM (1978) which they'd like to include as a bonus on
the blu-ray. Only five days left to raise $1,000 to restore SEA DREAM 3-D. Please help by
contributing what you can:


Watch the videos, read the updates and make your pledge.

May I also remind everyone that the World 3-D Expos that took place in Hollywood in 2003, 2006 and 2013 were made up of the films that Bob Furmanek had diligently searched for, found and saved, and that Greg Kintz did restoration work on. Without their efforts, there would have been no Expos. So successful were the Expos that they had a profound impact on the industry, demonstrating the viability of 3-D technology and helping to revive studio interest in making new 3-D movies:

Sea Dream 3D was cleaned and digitized into left and right eye academy format by Cinefilm in 2009. Effort was funded by Jim Jacoby, then owner of Marineland of Florida that had exhibition rights to the film and several prints. The Jacoby Group has digital copies.
