Very nice article and definitely inspiring. Congratulations on finishing the film and best of luck.
I'm afraid your Kickstarter campaign is misled, self-distribution is brutal when you have so much hope for your film. If your film is really good as you claim, you shouldn't be afraid to show people at private screenings and at festivals. Don't be afraid of notes if you can agree they'd make your film better.
With all the clips you're sharing, you're showing too much and teasing too little. Your trailer is long and doesn't tease. Your extended clips are plenty and only reveal (unfortunately) poor sound mixing choices and some and some hard to follow scenes.
I feel you're more interested in showing the technical feat you achieved ( in terms of imagery) which is really impressing considering your approach but audiences don't really care much about it.
By reading your article and Kickstarter video I was really excited to watch what you had, but the by checking all the extended clips I lost my interest. There's nothing engaging there ( to me), and I loved all your references.
Hope this comment come across as a constructive criticism since it's much easier to write from outside than it was for you to create this film.
"Now, is the HyperDisk the fastest portable SSD out there? Is it the most affordable? Well, no and no." WTH Am I doing here then? Is it even reliable? Sorry, I won't put my precious data into some unproven brand on a Kickstarter campaign.
Silly to summarize the "anamorphic look" to the oval bokeh only. Arguably the biggest advantage of shooting anamorphic is to be able to get the depth-of-field/perspective of let's say a 50mm with the horizontal field-of-view of a 25mm. Posts like this can become misleading to a bunch of people.
Jungle Book is by far the most challenging and remarkable vfx of the year, it dominated the Visual Effects Society (VES) awards this year with 5 trophies, Rogue One had none. The VES award is the most serious and reliable award in tge vfx industry, judges are notable artists and vfx veterans, if VFX Oscars was anything to be taken seriously, they should just second the VES results each year. But after Hugo won over Rise of the planet of the Apes and Ex Machina (great movie) won over Star Wars and The Martian, everything is possible. Unfortunately the content of this article provides no serious argument to justify its tittle.
I'm sorry to break the news to the unawares but Robert Richardson is a terrible human being. As a director I wouldn't be OK working with someone that constantly humiliates and rants on his crew and has the industry's nickname of White Devil for that reason. I prefer not to glorify someone like that, ever, even if he knows his chops.
