In case you missed it this weekend, here's the piece we did for Need to Know on PBS with the great cartoonist Roz Chast.
So, I'm a little miffed they did that bizarre letterboxing. We're usually pretty diligent about PBS deliverables. In the rush of the production we worked to HD 1920x1080 standards -forgetting that PBS sometimes requires titles be 4:3 NTSC safe (which is about 1/4 of the screen tighter on all sides).
When we got the specs -on the day of delivery -it asked for "all animation" within NTSC 4:3 action safe. I'm hoping that they just meant type within NTSC title safety and reduced the piece to meet those standards. That's a drag, but at least makes sense.
Here's the proper full frame.
Anyway, other than the tech issue, the gang at PBS was exceeding receptive and upbeat about this piece. The writing and voice are great, but I see it and just think about how good it could be with adequate resources.
