Das Pro Post Production Update #53221123
Todd here with another Kickstarter update.
The movie is about 99.9932111% done. Yeah, I know we keep saying that but we really don't know what we don't know. And as we've learned new things, we keep going back to fix our old work. It's a slower process than we like, but it gets us excited when we see the end results. Chandler's punched me a few times in disbelief on how things are turning out.
I'm currently working on the DVD cover.
Chandler's doing some final tweeks to the sound.
Then we'll be working on the finalize the credits. We've also got some extra scenes we'll be throwing onto the DVD.
Finally, we'll author the DVD, build the menus so you can navigate through the movie or extra scenes.
We've done some research on how we're going to get the final DVDs. Because of the low volume, we're going to have the DVDs duplicated (vs replicated). Duplication basically makes a copy much like how you'd make a DVD on your home computer. The replication process is what you see for mass produced DVDs that have the shiny, silver back. We shot the film in 720p, but DVDs can only output at 480p, so we'll be also uploading a 720p version of the movie to Vimeo for those of you with Apple TVs and Roku media streaming boxes who want to watch Das Pro und the Rookie in all it's 720p glory.
Thanks for your patience.
Enclosed you'll see some the concept art of the DVD cover.
