Hi Roger, as well as everyone else who might have this information.

Since Shawshank Redemption is getting a UHD-BluRay Release in September, I was curious how involved you are/were with that release. Especially since in the podcast you talked about how difficult it was for you to find a decent transfer of the film.

I'm planning to finally get the film on physical media, so I wondered if that release is going to be the truest version of the film available on home media.

Thanks in advance for any insight 🙂

I did spend a day checking through this new version. From my point of view it is the best digital version and the studio went to great lengths to use the original elements, so such as dissolves are no longer optical but digital.
