OTHER UPDATES

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.

THANK YOU

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.

One Per Person: The End

HELLO KICKSTARTER

THE UPDATE TO END ALL UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

STATUS UPDATE

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.

THANK YOU

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.
