One Per Person is Heading to the Windy City!


Hello everyone!

We are extremely excited to announce that One Per Person (2016) has been accepted into its second major film festival for 2016, the Chicago International Children's Film Festival in Chicago, Illinois! Founded in 1983, this massive 10 day event is the both the first and the largest film festival for children in the United States and hosts a wide array of children's films from across the world. To quote the CICFF web site, "it is the mission of the Chicago International Children's Film Festival to set an internationally recognized standard of excellence in film, video, and television production for children."

One Per Person (2016) will be featured in the festival's Persistence Pay-Off 75-minute block of short films on Wednesday, November 2 at 9:45AM in the Music Box Theatre, Theater #1. The theme of the Persistence Pay-Off block is "Do the Right Thing, Manage Expectations, Deduction, Persistence", a perfect summary of the themes explored in One Per Person (2016).

In addition, One Per Person's still image was used in the festival's weekday schedule! One Per Person (2016) can be found on Page 9 (recommended for children in Grades 1-3) in the following PDF:

Depending on your location, your package may arrive early or late in August.

PREPARING FOR FESTIVALS: Our first task after completing the film was to fulfill all the deliverables. Finishing the imagery in a film is only one part of the delivery process. When working in color timing, each frame is still an individual image. During delivery, those frames are combined together with the music and exported into various formats like .mov Quicktime files, .mov ProRes files, .mov h264 compressed files, etc.

We had a big list of necessary file formats for different purposes, such as a file for digital delivery, a file for DVD burning, a file for festival submissions, a file for theatrical screenings, etc. The question might be: Can't you use the same file for everything? While that solution would be nice, every file type serves a unique purpose depending on the form of distribution. Theater projectors require one type of file, DVDs require another type of file, etc. for smooth playback and best color quality. We paid special attention to these details so that the film looks exactly right no matter where you watch the movie!

WRAP: In addition to creating all the files, we also had to take time and properly offline and archive all the data from the entire production. While the artists were working, we kept all the film's data online in a central server. Now that the project is finished, we have been carefully and diligently removing that data from the server ("offlining") and onto multiple hard drives that can be safely stored for archival purposes ("archiving"). This process involves hundreds of Gigabytes of data, and we are thankful for our technical directors and other team members that have assisted in this attentive endeavor.


A special thank you to everyone for your patience these past few months. Your kindness and understanding has allowed us to truly relish in the completion of the film. We have been overwhelmed with the congratulatory messages, and we are so thankful for the amazing circle of support you have provided us. Even now as the film is complete, we are continually filled with gratitude for the incredible fellowship of the crew and Kickstarter patrons like you. Thank you, as always, for being such a fantastic cornerstone throughout this journey.


We were giddy with delight at seeing the first batch of DVDs arrive!
