About this project

I am looking for the funding money to purchase a new RetroScan Universal film scanner for my big projects involding on many lost 35mm nitrate films and fragments which it can be seen at YouTube under my username Robert Hoskin. I am a 35mm Nitrate Film Researcher based in Australia since 2013, and have already uploaded the then-lost 35mm fragments to YouTube which has added up to twenty-seven entries. My main special film project is the lost 1911 short film classic "Pictureland", directed by Thomas Ince, currently on major restoration task and be fully completed due on end of October, 2016, aiming for it's release to YouTube. But I am quite unhappy with the dire overlong scanning job with my old Epson GT8200UF film scanner which is too slow and painfully done. So my request to you to get me to raise the money to let me to purchase the RetroScan Universal film scanner and some equipments that connected with it, which it can enables me to scan the many backlogs of lost 35mm films in minimum task time and complete it and uploads the film to YouTube within a week at least, not months period. If you has never awared about it or me, then please visit YouTube and watch my projects titled "Lost 35mm Nitrate Film FOUND !" and please type simple 'Lost 35mm' to search for it with my name 'Robert Hoskin' under that title listing. Please view at the two-minutes video of my old task on scanning the lost 1911 short film "Pictureland" by my old Epson film scanner. That explaining a lot about my 35mm film scanning task at background. Please give me the money generously as I always showing my films to you for free ! It is the tool to produce more lost 35mm films for YouTube to share the video production for the viewers to see it for free in return.

Risks and challenges

Yes, I am currently a member of Nitrateville.com, and have been activiating there for over three years since 2013. Please visit there and read all my topics and columns about my lost 35mm nitrate films/fragments scanning expertise under my account of 'Silencebound', also uploaded over 25 lost film fragment entries there as well. They at Nitrateville.com oftenly opted me to release the lost classic 1911 Thomas Ince short film "Pictureland". I have told them that I am seeking the funding to give me the money to let me to purchuse the new RetroScan Universal film scanner which it can enables me to complete many backlogs of old 35mm films for Nitratevillers to see the lost film classics. Hence, that is to replace my old slowing Epson 35mm film scanner. They will give me the money to cover the requested cost thru Kickstarter.
