Sorry about the delay, but we're now getting to the final stages.
After a long and awesome editing session yesterday, we feel comfortable that this cut is good enough to lock the picture. But is it? Remember how we promised $250+ backers an extra perk?
Everybody who backed $250 or more will get to see the complete short in its current form, and we'll wait 48 hours until we put the padlock on the editing software and focus on finishing up the audio, which is the last thing left. In those 48 hours, these backers can point out problems or suggestions - even though we can't do big changes at this point, we'll listen to feedback. Maybe there's a simple edit that can improve things.
Here's the schedule that we hope to achieve:
Thursday, 11/5 - Picture LOCK. Begin with final audio design and mix.
Friday, 11/13 - Final master. Video and audio is expected to be 100% complete.
Friday, 11/20 - Done with final touches to BluRay menu system, additional materials, cover design, etc. etc. Submitting the project to the disc manufacturer.
At this point, we may be able to send out the vimeo links for all $30+ backers.
Mid-December: We'll receive the BluRay discs and begin to ship them to the $50+ backers - except for the $100+ backers, we need to gather the cast to sign each BluRay disc, so that will take longer.
No guarantees on the schedule, but this is our current goal. We're almost there! Thanks for being there with us!
