Hey, didja hear? The movie's done! Like done done, for reals this time.
I know what you're thinking: Wasn't the movie done, like, months ago? What took so long to get it 'done done'.
Well, I'm glad you asked! As I'm sure you can put together, there are a lot of steps in the (as I like to call it) "post-post process". Lots of little technical things that we've talked about here at length, from coloring the movie and designing the sound scape of the picture to more basic things like adding in all the special effects. The end result makes this finished version of the movie completely different than the locked cut version just a few months ago.
You know what it reminds me of? Back to the Future Part 2.
You know that scene where Doc Brown rips his face off? It's right after they arrive in 2015 and right after they hide Jennifer's body in the trash (out of context, that makes it sound like a mobster movie), as Doc is giving Marty the low down on the future. Doc tells Marty that he went to a rejuvenation clinic and "got a whole natural overhaul. They took out some wrinkles, did hair repair, changed the blood, added a good 30-40 years to my lie. They also replaced my spleen and colon!"
That's exactly what the post-post process is like! We took this thing that was already great, smoothed out some wrinkles, changed out the blood, and added a good 30 years to it's life.
It is so awesome, I can't stand it. Now to get it pushed out the door and onto some screens. The adventure is just beginning!
