The casewrap for the DVD is now complete and posted here. Click on the image to examine the text and design in closeup.
Our deepest thanks as always to Robert Kato Design of San Francisco for putting up with all the changes and refinements. Thanks to Jeff at Paragon Media in Seattle for updating all the elements. Next comes the final design of the paper insert and the two labels, and finishing work on the motion menu and menus of disc two.
To the right is an early prototype of the menu design, where you can preview the titles of the 11 new outtakes on disc one. Doug Johansen has been working closely with us on the DVD authoring. Again, click on the image to see an enlargement.
We will be previewing interviews and outtakes fro the bonus features of the DVD next Saturday, September 25, at the Heart Mountain conference at the Japanese American National Museum. More details to come.
Coming in October are two screenings at the University of Dayton, in support of their First Year Read program of Julie Otsuka’s When the Emperor Was Divine.
