T-64 Days and Counting Down to the End of 2011

2011 – Last 100 Days
T-64 Days To Go
28 October 2011

Goal:  1 hour per day working on the film
Re-Digitized 23 October 2009  tapes of artwork by Lester Yocum and a short interview with the artist.  There were a few dropped frames in yesterday’s capture and some audio artifacts.  Re-booted the machine and cleaned the heads
Also re-digitized a 30 October 2008 footage.  Earlier capture had dropped frames.
If you see the video I did for the book “A Reluctant Malachi,”(also in the box to the right)  you can see Les’ work on that painting of the Apostles in the middle of the video.  It is also the thumbnail for the video.  Les believed enough in the project to license some of his fantastic artwork for use in the movie.
