A friend shared this with me and I thought I'd post it here too:

This is really nice and all, but I don't think it has anything to do with the forum category. Processing film and color grading it and all those things are different, but I guess it can serve as an inspiration as a movie look tongue

Great link, and film restoration is very appropriate to a forum 50% of whose purpose is to address retouching.

Well, I think the forum category's description is broad enough to include what is shown in the clip, not to mention that related topics have been posted here over time, and I imagined some of the members who frequently visit DAR would find this interesting smile.

I tried to calculate the number of frames they had to work on roughly... and it's in the neighborhood of  172,000 frames by hand.

2hrs  24frames/sec  3600seconds/hr

7200 x 24 = 172,800

It made me wonder what the retouching bill was...
