Thank you Robert & Sharon for your generous contributions! In exchange, a magnificent video of your son and his new found talents:
It’s been almost a year now since our Kickstarter launched, so it’s time to start properly thanking our biggest donors! And what a better day to start than Valentine’s Day! For the next several weeks, we will be releasing our donor thank you videos. They’re short and silly, but made with love. We hope you like them.
So, thank you Marci Miles! We hope you like this video, starring Puff the Goat and Julian Broudy.
How do you measure, measure a documentary? In goat kids? In saanens? In Larsons? In cups of coffee? In ribbons, in milk, in vet checks, in chevre?
Over the last eight months, Trevor, Julian, Peter and I have been working tirelessly to sift through all the video and audio footage we have, syncing it, transcribing it and logging it. On Monday we reached an amazing milestone: We have now have logged all of the footage in FileMaker, which amounts to 7,546 unique entries. The next step is assembling everything into a rough cut, so we can screen it for our friends, get feedback, and make a fine cut. Then there’s sound mixing, color correction, post effects, and if we can raise money for it, some animations.
The moral of the story is that editing a documentary is no simple task. We have already spent countless hours in post-production and there are thousands to come, but we are all confident that it will be an AWESOME documentary in the end. The footage looks great!
157 hours of video footage doesn’t seem like a lot, but to give you an idea of the scope, here are some things you could do in the same amount of time:
- If you drove At 60 mph, you could travel from Paris to Beijing AND BACK.
- You could watch every NFL Superbowl for the last 35 years.
- You could bake 10,276 Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies (assuming you already have 101 pounds of flour, 85 pounds of butter, 120 pounds of sugar, 342 eggs, 170 bags of Chocolate Chips and 1 quart of vanilla extract at hand).
- You could watch 11.5 seasons of Saturday Night Live.
- You could walk from San Diego to San Francisco on foot.
- You could listen to all 7 Harry Potter Books, 3 Hunger Games Books and 1/2 of the first Twilight book.
- You could watch all 202 episodes of The X Files, plus the two X Files movies AND still have an hour leftover.
- You could watch every episode of Seinfeld and every episode of Friends back-to-back
- You could listen to the entire Beatles discography 16 times.
- You could watch the Extended Edition of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King 36 times.
And, you could listen to the song Seasons of Love 3,305 times
Today we had a Goat Show Doc photo shoot. Check out some of the shots below.
Julian and I gave birth to a goat! (Just kidding. But this does look like your typical family photo… minus baby, plus goat)
The goat is just as excited about Goat Show Doc as I am!
Thank you to the Stutz family for letting us borrow Kitty (Nigerian Dwarf baby) for the photos!
I’m afraid that we don’t have the space to post all of the hundreds of photos GSD takes… but the good news is that we just opened a Flickr account where you can view ALL of the pictures we take from our shoots.
Check it out! I recently uploaded all of Julian’s photos from Day 1, 2 and 3 of shooting. You can view all the photos in our “Photostream” or you can view them by “Set” which are organized by the day of the shoot. If you want to see a Slideshow of the photos, simply click “Slideshow”:
I hope you guys enjoy all of these photos! Great work Julian!
Speaking of Julian, check out his awesome new website: http://julianbroudy.com/ He even has some photos from Goat Show Doc.
Anyway, I’ll let you know when a new set of photos goes up, and I can promise that there will be a ton come July
