Apologies for the delay and lack of communication. Here's the skinny on the hold up: The colorist for the film and the editor of the trailer are both running significantly behind schedule. That said, they are both doing such great work, at discounted rates, while working their full time jobs so I don't feel comfortable pushing them any harder than I am.

Once I have the final colored film there are a few minor things I will need to do before the final cut is created—nothing too time consuming. After that, I think all that is left before the release is jumping through the Video-On-Demand hoops.

Hopefully early next week I can post an update with firm dates!

Quick Update

From the beginning of summer the goal had been to release the film right before Apple's September event but it's looking more like the release will be sometime in the last two weeks of September. If you have premiere tickets I'm hoping to have solid dates for you in the next update.

There has been a set back in the film's color grading so I am currently scrambling to get that re-started. I have the right talent lined up and he's confident he can deliver by mid September.  

The new trailer is running late but from what I've seen it's looking to be really special.

In the good news department, the new VFX work is looking stunning. I wouldn't expect anything less from a guy named Clutch Davis. 

Also, I was able to make some significant progress on the legal aspects of the film by securing a fair use review by our new lawyer. This is a critical step in securing our E/O insurance (needed for release). Initially, the fee for this was going to be an insurmountable financial hurdle. By shopping around and doing as much of the leg work as possible I was able to get the price down to a quarter of the initial quotes I received. If you're a filmmaker and you need help doing the same, feel free to reach out (co@storyandpixel.com). Now being within striking distance of the release date it makes sense to put the E&O insurance on the credit card which, as far as I can tell, is the last legal hurdle. 

House Keeping

I mentioned a few updates ago that I was shooting to get the first full-length interview out by the end of June. That's going to be delayed until the film's release so we can get a proper delivery system in place so all your interviews will be in one central place.

As always thanks for your support! It's so exciting crossing these final hurdles. 

Best,
Jake
