"Easy to Learn, Hard to Master - The faith of Atari" is finally ready and you will receive the link to view and download it in the coming days.

English subtitles and bonus materials will be added in the next weeks.

We are very proud of our work so please, when you have watched it, send us a couple of lines: we want to understand likes and dislikes!

Thank you all for the support and the patience!

In the past two months, we had the opportunity to shoot some new interviews for our third documentary. We are still working on title and script, but maybe you can guess what will be about... We have interviewed John Sculley, Mike Markkula, and Paul Terrell. We already shot, among the others, Steve Wozniak, Jay Elliot, Andy Hertzfeld, Daniel Kottke... So in our next documentary, there will be, for the first time ever, Sculley, Markkula, and Wozniak together telling the fascinating story of their company and of its founders!

      Does anyone know of a way to contact Kickstarter to let them know that we're not getting our awards? I would not have backed as high as I did if I wasn't getting a blu-ray.

      Ewen, I agree with you about the Instagram-like video effect. I think it's a fad that unfortunately will date this otherwise excellent documentary. Or maybe I've color corrected too many old photos and now seeing people fade their photos on purpose irritates me..

      John: Below the main video window at the VOD site is a "cloud download" icon with a little drop-down arrow next to it; click on that for a drop down menu of video resolutions to download. The 1080p is about 3GB.

      I downloaded and watched it tonight, and really enjoyed it. I think it turned out really nicely, and is "general interest" enough I could see it fitting into our local Documentary Film Festival. The 1080p render looks great, and I loved the editing (including the "editorial comment" with cut in quick shots of "reaction" looks). In case you do plan to do any final tweaking of the edit, it'd be worth a final check for cut off dialogue lines (there are just a few which just end mid-sentence that jumped out), where maybe the audio could be turned down before the video cut. Also the "faded wobbly video" effect, while a great "slice of the time" touch, feels like it'd be best used a wee bit more sparingly.

      Thanks for the "early release" before the final version is ready.

      once again you release the VOD, but don't provide a DVD cover type artwork... those of us who catalog/add to a library need the artwork too fellas.

      Congratulations on the VOD release! Do you have an estimate for the BluRay release?
