A long overdue update: The Perfect Cow progress report

Hey everyone,
It's been over a year and...

the rough cut of The Perfect Cow is done!

It literally took hundreds upon hundreds of hours of logging and editing footage, but it seems to have paid off. We now have a 44 minute movie, still entitled "The Perfect Cow", to show for our efforts.

The direction the movie took in the editing suite is a little different then the movie synopsis posted on the site - As it currently stands, the film The Perfect Cow is about Benji, and what a truly interesting and lovable character he is. The perfect cow still plays quite a significant role in the film, but the search is more of a framing story. That's all I am going to reveal for now - (I'm not going to ruin the ending for all of you!)

So, where to go from here? Well, the rough cut needs to be edited into a final cut, music has to be added, a voice over artist has to be hired, titles have to be finished, and a final product has to be outputted to DigiBeta / DVCam. We're on the last lap!

Once the movie is completed, we'll begin shopping it around to distributors (both TV & film, although due to the movie's length TV would likely be the most suitable destination), and possibly submit it to some festivals like HotDocs.

Stay tuned for more updates, and if you're interested in seeing the final movie when it is done PLEASE join our email list so we can inform you at that time.
