JAWS Restoration for the Blu-ray

Universal posted this video demonstrating the clean up of the original JAWS negatives for the blu-ray transfer.


Over the course of several months, skilled technicians at Universal Studios Digital Services meticulously balanced color, removed dirt and scratches, and repaired any damage to the film elements shot by shot and frame by frame. Following the picture restoration, Universal Studios Sound team up-mixed the iconic Jaws soundtrack to DTS-HD Master 7.1, optimizing the sound on the Blu-ray for the best home theater technology.
The entire restoration process was conducted in conjunction with Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment’s post-production team to ensure the integrity of Spielberg’s original vision remained intact.

The date was the last day of the ride, which is being demolished to make room for a new attraction. We interviewed JAWS fans, a former Skipper of the Ride and watched the ride wait times increase throughout the day.

JAWSFest: The Tribute Event Aug 9-12

There is going to be another JAWSFEST!  JAWSFEST: The Tribute will be held August 9-12, 2012 on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, the filming location of the original JAWS. JAWSFEST: The Tribute is being produced by MV Promotions Network, directed by Susan Sigel Goldsmith.  The upcoming event sounds great for JAWS fans:

We are inviting fans, families, cast, and crew to join us in Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) to share their personal stories, memorabilia, and experiences. This event will explore how the making of JAWS has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974 and how the blockbuster film they created continues to impact lives today. 9 am to 10 pm various Island locations.
