THE UPDATE TO END ALL UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Over five years. Over 100 artists. Over 600 Kickstarter patrons. Collectively coming together to present the story of One Per Person to the world, collectively celebrating the tradition of independent filmmaking and the passion for creative storytelling.
This update is for all of you. Because we are finished.
Finished. Yes, finished.
The words are so simple to write, and yet the gravity cannot strike deep enough chords.
Confetti, balloons, champagne aside.... we are finished. Truly. Finally. Finished.
This weekend, we walked into the color timing suite in Los Angeles. We sat in the Deep Image "DI" room and finally saw the big silver screen spring to life with our images. For hours, we dialed and unified the color into exactly the right spot and then sat back to watch the film in final, true form.
And every minute that screen played, we could only think of this journey. This journey now coming to a close after one of the longest, most arduous, most rewarding, and most fulfilling adventures of our careers. We thought of each artist that touched each shot, of each story meeting, of each discussion, of each battle, of each victory.... and most importantly... each and every memory... good or bad, high or low, recent or distant. Each memory that came perfectly together and brought us to here.
And today, right this moment as walk away from the color session, we celebrate a memory that until now has only been a dream: Finishing One Per Person.
We always knew the day would arrive for writing this update. We wondered how we could possibly write the perfect words to convey gratitude above and beyond every other update we have ever written. How could we possibly describe the feeling in our souls as we watched the finished film? How could we possibly share in this celebration accurately with the people who have been with us on this journey? You, who have truly become our family?
The term "words do not convey" even ceases to serve us here. As such, we can only rely upon the simple words at their core: Thank you.
To our crew and patrons alike: Thank you for your time. Thank you for joining. Thank you for giving. Thank you for the nights. Thank you for the weekends. Thank you for listening. Thank you for your words. Thank you for your workmanship. Thank you for your commitment. Thank you for your faith.
Thank you for One Per Person.
The celebration of our time at the colorist!
PS. For everyone wondering, "When will we see the film?"... We are enjoying the moment and will soon begin the next phase of preparing the Kickstarter giveaways, planning the premiere, and plotting our trajectory on the festival circuit. As always, exciting information to come soon! For now, please join us in this celebration.
