I really don’t need to explain what “Style Wars” is but suffice to say none of us would be here writing about this stuff without it. Well fans are in for a treat as Henry Chalfont has hours of additional archive but he needs your help take the original analogue footage and digitise it, in order to preserve what he captured.
We’re talking all the big hitters here – more scenes of Rock Steady Crew and Dynamic Rockers, more interview footage with Skeme (and his mom!), Kase 2, SEEN, Dondi and all the other characters that made the original cut such a stunning piece of work.
In Henry’s own words:
“The original footage is damaged and fading. Fortunately, it will be possible to repair using digital technology. It will cost $28,000 to save and restore the outtakes. Saving the best outtakes is an important component of our overall project to restore the entire negative of the film and make an HD master which will preserve the record of the first painted trains in their original vivid colors.”
So far around $18k has been raised with only a week left to raise the funds…if you can spare a little cash do it. There’s no risk, if the $28k isn’t raised the money isn’t taken from your account. But if it is, you’ll get your name in the credits and much more.
