Shirts are here!

The t-shirts are now in! I'll be getting the Shirts already ordered by people to them in the very near future. I do have a small inventory built up now, so people who want to purchase one can now received their shirt within just a few days. In the future, I may go to one color printing. It would save a few dollars per shirt, and I'm thinking of adding something besides just the logo but I'm not quite sure yet. That would make the current shirt a discontinued collectors item, so be sure to get one while they're still around! ;-)

Good news & bad news

The good news: the animated FDP logo is alive once again! Instead of trying to extract it from my backup disks and risk over-filling my hard drive (which I guess wouldn't have happened, but I didn't know until after the fact), Matt extracted it from his backup disks and e-mailed it to me over the weekend and I promptly inserted it into the movie.

The bad news: SodaNation, the group who gave us the song "Computer Life" to use in the film, has disbanded. We'll still be able to use the song, but I was going to promote them a bit in the credits.

What? Almost done, you say???

Since Shawn was taking up all of my LOTRO time today, I continued editing the movie from this morning. I now have the majority of it completed. Abbie's reshoot is the only major item needed. Other than that, I have to grab the Flaming Death animated logo from backup disks. Then it's finished! Yes, Matthew, you're voice-over is no longer needed! Turns out that the boom mike noise blends in with the background ambiance sound file I'm using, so it's all good. I'm going to change the film from color to black and white, but I haven't made a solid decision on that yet. I'll have to create one of each and compare them.

And oh... by the way, Happy New Year!

Shirts ordered

T-shirts have been ordered! I put in an order for two small, two medium, four large and four extra-large shirts last week, so I should have them in a couple of weeks. One medium and two extra-large are now spoken for. I do have one extra-large from the first batch on hand right now, however.

The first two minutes and 17 seconds of "Luke & Leia" have now been edited. I'm going to try to get everything done this weekend with the exception of the items that need to be redone. Looking good, though. I have it in widescreen format now as well.
