Its been close to 3 years since the 1st movie (Tao) came out and no group has done it yet due to lack of subs; therefore one can make the safe assumption that it won't get done. While I was working on the TV series, I really wanted to do these movies, but the lack of subs derailed me from doing these movies.
Fast forward to today and I've struck up a deal with an eBay user who has the movies to only give me the subs (after teaching him how to extract subs).
Now here is where you the fan come into play. The scripts need MASSIVE amounts of editing. If you are adverse to the Scryed franchise and have time... b/c time is the main thing you'll need here, I can absolutely use your help.
So to give you guys an idea of how bad the subs are right now... do you remember those foreign films in the 90s and the Engrish subs they had and how we'd laugh on how bad the subs were but continued watching the foreign movie b/c it was cool and just needed subs for a gist of whats going on, same can be applied to the Scryed movie scripts. However, looking at the movies, it looks like segments of the TV series are put here, so I'd venture to guess that 70% of the movie is taken directly from the TV series, so anyone that would like to assist with editing these scripts can use the TV series as a reference point.
If I had received these scripts about 1 year ago when I was doing the TV series, I would've done all this myself (editing the movie scripts); however, now with almost all my motivation for this kinda stuff pretty much gone, I'll be relying on you guys for assistance.
In the unlikelihood that no one wants to help with editing the Scryed movie scripts, then it'll be a lost investment on my side, which is no biggie; however, I'm hoping someone will have the time to help with this so the general public can appreciate the remastered Scryed material.
For those that are interested, let me know through IRC, comments, email or leave your email in the comments.
Thanks and hopefully we can get this done.

This series is finally complete!
In the batch, I re-encoded episodes 1-4 which got tweaked by additional filters that were propagated onto episodes 5+
We're coming down to the home stretch ladies and gentlemen for Final8... all that's left is 1 active project and 2 stalled projects (due to lack of BDMVs). Since we're talking about projects, I did promise a few months ago that I'd be doing the BDs for Tales of Symphonia. So Tales of Symphonia is composed into 3 seasons; however seasons 2 & 3 only had DVD sources and thus, my releases were from the DVDs. Fast forward to today and seasons 1, 2 and 3 now have BD sources. For consistency, I'll be redoing season 1, but it already has a BD source, but not season 2 & 3.
Just 1 more volume to go and then another series will be complete and then it'll be a waiting game to see when the BDMVs get released for the 2 stalled projects I have left.

Only 2 more volumes are left to complete this series, but as mentioned, the last 2 volumes being released by me will need to be done through the kind donations from you guys.
Most likely the next release will be the conclusion of Coppelion.
