Hello 100 Yen Contributors,
Specifically all of you wonderful people who contributed for the special edition and more!
I just wanted to give you a long overdue update on how things are progressing.
I know that the completion of the special edition is taking
a long time, but it's going to be worth the wait. I'm simply can't release
something that is incomplete, I want to include the maximum amount of content
possible and that means a ton of editing, way more than the original film
required. I hired an additional editor for several sections of this content
however I am limited in this as there are no Japanese speaking editors in my
area of Canada so the brunt of the work is left on my shoulders and I want it
to be worth watching.
I'm going to break down what the special edition will contain.
We will introduce each interview subject on a per-chapter basis so you can quickly navigate between people via a menu. After a short introduction by the filmmakers on how we met and connected with the individual we will include a selection of their interview in a more un-cut format that tries to highlight content that didn't make it into the film. Each person is given about 10 - 15min sometimes more.
There will also be some short vignettes included throughout the bonus content that highlight some of the more exciting/exotic places we were able to visit including the Warehouse arcade which is a super iconic, massive arcade as well as some very recognizable imagery from the recently closed Shibuya Kaikan arcade.
I know it's taken too long to release this but I hope you'll bear with me a little while longer , we are still subtitling and trying to assemble all of the content. At the moment its looking like it will be in excess of 4 hours worth of additional content. Hopefully that number alone explains the amount of time you've been kept waiting.
Finally, I'm also looking to include a few additional surprises as a special thanks for our backers that will be created in extremely limited numbers and hopefully add that little extra collectible element to the whole product.
Thanks again for coming on this wild arcade gaming fueled ride with us and I hope that it's been worth the wait. I'll be updating more regularly on facebook as I am able. Keep in touch, I do receive all your emails and appreciate your feedback and support!
Here’s a shortened link to the .srt subtitle files: http://bit.ly/12YgUAR
You may need to manually set up the file to work with a PS3, we recommend iTunes or Quicktime on MAC or VLC player with a PC. The subtitles are accessible via the softwares menus.
It looks like the digital downloads are working for the most part although the server is getting hammered so if it’s not working you may need to add another copy to your cart and check out again.
Also, some people have mentioned that the file won’t display subtitles via a PS3 etc. so i’ve included a link to the .srt files which may help fix this.
I hope you’re all enjoying the film!
The Digital Download should now work for anyone whose account has been confirmed! I am still going through and confirming quite a few so if it doesn’t work, try again a little later. If you’re having any issues please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, it looks like there is an issue with the software we are using for the digital download.
I have a support ticket in to address this however it may take the full 24 hours I initially suggested to fix it. At the moment you will simply see: This content is protected, but it doesn’t look like you have access. If you feel this is a mistake, please contact the store owner.
In the meantime, go ahead and make your account and I will confirm them so they are ready to go as soon as this glitch is sorted.
thanks for your patience and i’ll send out one final update as soon as we are 100% good to go!
