After a couple of technical hiccups - Adobe CC I'm looking at you! Richy finally managed to sort out the DVD ready to send to the BBFC. It hasn't been a shit-ton of work more fiddly, frustrating and time consuming. First we had to wait to get the Associate Producer credits in and finalised (spellings, nick names and all that jazz), then Richy needed to redo the credit roll to incorporate the Associate Producers, while trying not to change the overall credits length.
While all this was happening I was finishing the Drunken Audio Commentary and finishing the edit of the "Making of..." featurette. Like I said nothing super flash - just time consuming. Anyway last night James and I could finally "sign off" on the DVD in advance of sending it to the BLOODY MONEYGRABBING GITS in the BBFC. So this morning nice and early I rang the BBFC to find out their BACS banking details in order to make a bank transfer payment and to find out how much to pay. And guess what? They don't know!
Yup a service that I have to pay handsomely for AND IN ADVANCE and they don't know how much it's going to cost. It could be £1340.89 or maybe £1540.31 or even £1982.22. Nobody knows. How scary is that? Anyway the good news is their current turnaround time is about 2 weeks as opposed to the maximum of 6. So the BIG day will now be Friday. Going to see if we can send them a DCP instead of a DVD viewer for the theatrical certificate... Assuming now more Adobe CC SNAFUs that should be available at some point tomorrow.
Anyway if you haven't ordered your Launch Party tickets yet, please do - there aren't loads left and also check our IMDb page to see the new Associate Producer credits in situ.
Thank you everyone - onwards and upwards, eh?
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
