Have a question?
Hello, James. Audio has still not been fixed -- it's the only thing holding up completion of the project. However, there is an ETA regardless of what happens with the audio. If we're not able to find someone that can fix it by the end of this summer (2016!) we'll release the film to backers as is. Expect a longer post about more particulars in the next day or two. I'll have updates about backer rewards there.
Still waiting on product. Any ETA for this?
Where are we on this project? I don't believe I got my backer reward yet, and just wanted to know if I was missed, or if it has not yet shipped. Thanks!
Hi James! Absolutely. Visual FX are nearly done and audio is nearing completion (the first pass had issues). Once that's done -- the movie will be!
Will you be sending out a new survey, for updated addresses?
Hi Jason! It is nearing completion. The color corrected cut was handed over in early December for VFX work (it took a while to find someone to do the VFX after we lost our earlier options). There were some audio issues discovered that our audio guy is now cleaning up. The main is reason it's taken so long is me. I had planned on doing the color correction myself. But when we initially made those plans my wife was not yet pregnant. By the time I was finally able to work on the edited film I was a stay-at-home father of twins. Due to trying to color correct around the babies' schedules the whole color process took twice as long as it should have (some issues with some of the footage made it more difficult as well). But it is coming! It's no longer in my hands alone and that's a good thing! We want it finished and we want you to see it - ASAP! Thanks!
Hi, in looking I realized that I don't think anything has come of this at all. Is there any update plan or schedule at all? Thanks.
I am so sorry for the lack of updates, but the truth is there was nothing to update. We've been basically on a twins-induced hiatus since last September. However -- my wonderful wife Jennifer, who is a preschool teacher, is now home for the summer. So what that means is -- time to finish this thing! Sound is nearly finished and now I can return to the last ten minutes of color grading (which happens to be one of the most challenging parts!).
Expect more regular updates in the updates section and on my blog as the summertime rolls (Jane's Addiction reference!). We will finish Reunion this summer and when we do we'll let all of you know when you'll get to see it.
And for James Notheisen -- Jesse's performance is worth the wait. He's gold.
Thank you all so much for your support and patience!
Reunion is coming!
I hope all is well. I was curious where we stand on this project. I really want to see Jesse's performance. Please update us on this.
Any updates on when you will be done. I'm looking forward to seeing Jesse as a bad guy...
I apologize profusely for needing to get nudged by a question in this comments section to get an update out. Expect a more in depth one in a couple of weeks.
Suffice it to say having twins back in March has been even more challenging and time-consuming than I thought.
That being said, Reunion is close to completion. The edit is locked. Sound design is in place and awaiting my approval. Color correction is the hangup at the moment. I'm doing all of that myself and have had few opportunities since the end of summer (my wife is a preschool teacher and went back to work) to even look at the movie. I'm finishing up a freelance job right now (got to buy diapers and formula!) and after I hand it off to my clients tomorrow or Tuesday (October 15th or 16th) I will be able to use the little bit of free time I've been devoting to that to Reunion. It's close!
Backers can expect a Backer Survey in their inboxes in the next two weeks. Rewards will flow not long thereafter.
Thank you all for your support and patience!
