The BABYLON 5 Preservation Project

Posted in: preservation
2 days ago, Jason Davis, writer, editor for Harlan Ellison and Babylon 5 historian, launched a Kickstarter campaign "Preserve the history of BABYLON 5 using archival paperwork and interviews with cast and crew to create a definitive making-of book." Twitter account @B5News has been promoting this project, and I'm really hoping you can back it too: The Babylon 5 Preservation Project on Kickstarter [https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1387618382/the-babylon-5-preservation-project]

Posted in: campaigning
Fellow lurker Jay Fubler Harvey has started a campaign on change.org since we found out that Warner Brothers probably have the master negatives in storage somewhere. A recent tweet by series creator J Michael Straczynski states: "But at the end of each season we were required to transfer all digital assets direct to film, frame by frame, so Warners could have a version that could be used across all later formats. That version, with pristine CG and live action, has never seen the light of day."
