May release a 720p version if there is sufficient interest - this reasonably sized encode should allow more people to watch the program.
"This is a quintessentially Midwestern story of an unassuming, self-doubting man who, through expressing his unique view of the world, redefined the comic art form with Peanuts. His genius lay in depicting the daily collisions of insiders and outsiders, of mundane cruelties and transcendent hopes - seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary. The Peanuts cast of characters is as familiar as our own siblings; their trials and tribulations speak of our families and evoke our childhood desperations. They are portrayed with whimsy and poignancy - and always with love and tolerance, each representing different facets of Schulz' personality and his perspectives on 20th-century America. The program includes excerpts from classic Peanuts television specials, archival footage, personal photos and home movies — as well as unlimited use of the comic strips. Archival interviews with Schulz himself offer insight into a humble man who reached the pinnacle of his profession but still described himself as ordinary. Original interviews include Schulz’ widow and three oldest children, the real-life inspirations for Linus and the 'little red-haired girl,' prominent cartoonists who knew Schulz and David Michaelis, author of 'Schulz and Peanuts', who served as consultant to the film. The film also uses video compositing and original animations to meld Peanuts and Schulz’ life."
