Hotrods and Cool Cats at AlphaDogs Post Production |December 29, 2010
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Burbank, CA—Burbank based AlphaDogs Post Production recently completed work on the film Deuce of Spades, a story about a modern day hot rod girl who finds a mysterious letter dating back to the fifties hidden in her roadster that takes her on a journey into the underground scene of fast hotrods and cool cats.
DVD encoding and authoring services were handled by AlphaDogs VP of Design, Sean Williams, using Apple's DVD Studio Pro and Compressor. Williams comments, "Faith's DVD project was one of the larger ones we've tackled. The film's 2-hour-plus running time with 5.1 surround and stereo audio listening options along with the inclusion of behind the scenes documentaries, a director's commentary track and subtitles in 9 different languages really pushed the limits of what the dual-layer (DVD-9) disc could handle. Encoding the HD film at the highest possible SD quality while leaving enough space for the bonus features was one challenge we faced. Fortunately we have developed a lot of tricks over the years for squeezing the best quality out of these situations". Williams who worked closely with Faith to help her prepare her menu designs for the DVD also comments; "Graphic design for DVDs is my favorite part of the process. It is the creative stage where we can really use our talents to make the client happy."
Deuce of Spades is directed, produced and written by Faith Granger. For more information and to purchase a DVD that includes subtitles in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Dutch, and English, visit www.deuceofspadesmovie.com.
