August Update - Art Contest Winners
We're pleased to announce the winners of the Gunsmith Cats Fan Art contest! Mr. Sonoda has made his arbitrary, capricious and final decisions, and awarded 5 grand prizes!
In addition, the Gunsmith Cats Production Staff was dragooned into awarding 6 Merit Prizes to entries they particularly liked, as follows:
You can see higher-resolution versions of the winners on the contest page. We'd like to thank the over 40 artists who sent in entries!
We have completed the design of the embroidered patches, and are currently having test samples made; these become the "team patches" that members of the production team receive.
Assuming everything works well, the final production patches will be identical except that the text color will be different.
The proofreading team is working hard tweaking all the subtitles. We're particularly happy with the results, because every team member has a special skill or two that has already paid off in ways we didn't fully anticipate.
Blu-ray menu design is underway; we expect to use a similar style as we have in our other 4:3 Blu-ray discs.
The team at DidYouKnowAnime have delivered the rough-cut of their HD version of the production documentary, and they really went the extra mile! In addition to all the HD updates, they did additional research, shot new footage of Radinov's Mercedes, recorded a new interview with series composer Peter Erskine, and Mr. Erskine has kindly provided some home video of the original recording session for use in the documentary!
That's all for this month. Thanks again for your support.
