This is an overview over some older news.
To Print! - 1. April 2007
The DVD was sent to print earlier this week, and we expect it to be finished right after easter. I've added the cover picture and uppdated some other stuff on the pages. I have some problems to get the guestbook to work, but hopefully I'll get it right along with the order forms so that you can order the DVD easily.
DVD Finished, But... - 11. Mars 2007
I sat for many hours one day and finished the DVD menus and subtitles. But, the DVD was tested on a viewing, and did not pass 100%. I tried on my computer too and there seems to be some problems both with subtitles and that the movie stops. I also notices a big fault in the movie that I have to repair, and then render it again(a 16 hour long process). So, I'll test the DVD some more, and then fix the errors I can. I have also compared prices on the DVD publicing companies. Norwegian Media Authoroty is in box and the DVD is registered. So, everything is almost finished and ready for release. I'd hoped for the end of Mars, but it may be sometimes early in April.
While We Wait - 14. Februar 2007
We are waiting for the registration and approval from the Norwegian Media Authority. Since last update all of the bonus material is finished and we have made subtitles for Norwegian, Swedish and English language. The cover is also as god as finished. What remains is the print on the DVD disk, the DVD menu, the registration, and the printing. Much of this is out of our hand so I don't know how much time it will take, but we hope to be finished with the DVD in February and 500 DVD's printed in Mars. I also remove the Guestbook temporary because of the spam, but it should be back before the release.
Much To Do - 27. November 2006
It's taking a lot more time than planned to finnish the DVD version of the movie, so we probably wont release it this year. The reasons is that it tok more time than expected to make the bonus material and finalize the movie, and too little tin because of school. What I have done the last month is to fix some errors we've found, improved the cover and then begun on the bonus material. We've also made a commentary track to the movie.
Update - 22. Oktober 2006
we have shown the movie several times both private and public, and it has went very well. The making of the DVD takes time and goes slowly, mainly because of studies and other stuff. The DVD may be delayed, but it will come. We got some money from sparebank 1 in Kongsberg, they give away 8 scolarships/gifts of 10000 kr to young people. Ours go to the printing of the DVD.
