ClassicFlix got the rights to the 80 Talkie "Little Rascal" era shorts and have started a kickstarter to fund restoration of the first 22 - they ARE doing both Blu and DVD - 2K restoration. Seems the nitrate sound elements are a little rough so they are going to have to source those from best existing safety prints. (although I'd guess someone might have some sound discs - Railroading's Discs didn't turn up till the 1980's for instance)

$70,000 in 30 days - and in the FAQ they expect it will cost $3000 per short! Gee, how much did UCLA spend on the Laurel and Hardy shorts?

UCLA is doing full film-based restorations along with film based preservation materials ( albeit with a lot of digital help) while I suspect these Rascals "restorations" will be video-based only.

Big difference.
