Hi dear friends! I want to apologize for not being very active on Ello lately. I have been working on the festival release of our latest feature film "Littekens" (Dutch for Scars). We had to remaster the DCP version to a low resolution DVD file, while still bearable to watch. Ditto for the Dolby Digital surround - it all has to look and sound good on consumer TVs. What a drag...
When start festivals accepting Bluray? Or a memorystick?
Meanwhile, i am still sniffing out Ello and i must admit that it's not that easy, switching social platforms. I mainly use https://livecrew.nl (Dutch with English option) instead of Facebook. LiveCrew is a Dutch Facebook alternative that's growing in popularity at the moment in the Netherlands and Belgium.
I have been sending Ello invites to my Dutch friends, but none of them have responded so far. I know what the problem is... it's the language barrier. Majority of the Dutch can speak and read English, but writing is a whole different ball game.
It's good to make new filmmaking friends! I can't see that happening on LiveCrew soon!
I'll do my best to spend more time on Ello!
Cheers! - Martin -
