The release!

Posted in Production by Ton

bbbtrailer.pngThe dvd gold masters were sent in time to the printer, with as aim the may 15 release. Of course the day after we sent the discs some errors were detected…  like stereo sound in the ntsc movie, where 5.1 was more appropriate! New gold masters were sent, but it means that the printer needs extra days too. That means the discs get delivered here now on  tuesday May 20th (confirmed date by printer). We then will ship all of them the same day.

The online release of the film will then happen 10 days later, May 30 or 31.
We’re already lining up great mirror websites, sufficient for everyone to watch or download the film the same day!

Really curious to learn your reactions… :)

(BTW: May 17 or 18  is Blender 2.46 release. We’re going to get a good website traffic test!)

    Or perhaps use static pages for the most visited ones (if that’s not already the case). In some cases it can make miracles.

    @Chris
    Never thought of that. Well it’s still not to late for Ton to push forward the moment of the online release.

    I guess thos blender folks over there in Amsterdam may already have bleeding fingers because of the packaging action.
    I see forward to the arrival of the dvd. I purchased my new 22″ Display yesterday to view it in awesome quality. I can’t wait anymore.

    When I first got my Elephants Dream DVD one of the CDs had fallen out of the case’s plastic holder resulting in several scratches on the disc. I think quite a few people also had the same issue.
