Here we go into the final stretch for the funding phase.

Thanks once again for helping us make this one a success right away!

We mentioned extra work required to prepare these films for release. In addition to translating the other prints BELLES OF LIBERTY had a flaw we are working hard to address. There was a hair present in the print itself, not something that was adding in our transfer, as our transfer system shoots down directly at the film frames and there is no gate in which hair or debris can get stuck.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM AND FIX...

We use the frames preceding or following the problem frame to rebuild the image. This is a slow process involving frame by frame editing, but the results speak for themselves.

As always thank you for your support and interest!

Back to work...
