Yesterday, 3D Film Archive maestro and HTF's own Bob Furmanek invited me to a visit for a preview of what the 3D Film Archive has been up to lately - namely, their restoration of The Maze. It's a film that I had heard about for years, but had never actually had a chance to see. Bob was able to show me excerpts from about the first ten minutes of the film. For this new restoration, Bob and his team were given access to brand new 4K scans from the original camera negatives. What I saw looked absolutely stunning. The image looked, for lack of a better word, perfect. The clarity of the image was amazing, showcasing amazing depth and separation in the clips that I viewed. There wasn't even the slightest hint of dirt, debris or damage in the footage I was shown. I'm always excited whenever a new 3D Film Archive restoration is announced, but now that I've seen a peak of this one, I'm doubly excited. For anyone who's seen the film before and has been patiently waiting for this restoration: trust me, it's worth the wait. And for any 3D fans who are thinking about making a blind buy for this title: after seeing a few minutes of it, I'm completely sold. My thanks again to Bob Furmanek and Jack Theakston for their time and generosity in giving me this sneak preview!
