So here we are, getting towards the end of May. People are being polite but the questions are increasing. Here we go with details:
First of all, I have passed 800 pre-orders. That’s pretty amazing. Many bought it as part of the VEZZASPELL period, when you were getting a discount but had no idea what was coming out at the end. A lot of those folks are probably unsurprised that deadlines have slipped. Similarly, people who are buying after the deadline slipped are also showing nice faith. This is all very much appreciated.
As I’ve mentioned here and there, the documentary starts in one direction, then lets you go in multiple other directions. I want each direction to be full and complete, and not just a thin bunch of footage for you to then jump back and see other stuff, forgetting it. That does take a bit of time. All told, my estimate is that it’ll be roughly 2 hours of footage in that set.
There’s three featurettes, ranging from 12 minutes to an hour. One is basically done and going through the Brutal Render, the other two are piecemeal.
There are about 30 bonus features I don’t count as featurettes (although some might leak into that territory). They range from 2 minutes to 15. They’re now in the Brutal Render.
The DVD-ROM portion was finished a while ago.
So basically, a lot is done and a lot is not as done as I like. How this is all going to fit on 2 DVDs is going to be a fun challenge in itself.
I’ve told myself I will not be editing past the second week in June. Crunch time ahoy.
There we go.
