Announcing: New Things

I’ve been promising some announcements for several weeks now, so I figured it was time to stand and deliver. I’m no Lou Diamond Phillips, but I think I’ll be ok. Also, you may want to read on to see an interesting tidbit about part 3 of the Season Finale.

Here’s the stuff in the works…

  • The Leet World Season One Soundtrack. Sometime after the release of the Season Finale, we’ll finally be adding a section to our website for you to purchase a soundtrack inspired by music from our first season of The Leet World. Jace has been hard at work on this for a bit now, and is choosing a number of his favorite tunes from the course of the season to re-record and fill out as full songs, rather than the 20-30 second bits you hear in the show. We can’t talk details of pricing and such as of yet, but rest assured, it will be reasonable. And trust me, it’ll be worth every penny. Besides, if you just want one song, you can buy it individually.
  • G.R.I.E.F. This is a short Halo mini-series that we plan on doing a few episodes of. I don’t want to say too much about what the actual concept is, but it’s essentially a parody of super-hero teams and should make for a good time. Lots of action, lots of comedy.
  • Web Zeroes. Our pride and joy. A live action mockumentary starring Smooth Few Films, filmed in HD. That’s all I’ll say at the moment. We’re extremely excited about this.
  • New sites! While we enjoy our website and value the way it’s been able to carry us through the season, it really is kind of busting at the seams, mainly because we didn’t anticipate the kind of use it would be seeing after just one year’s time. A re-design is already in the works for this site, as well as a brand new site that will act as the Smooth Few Films hub for all of our projects.

So there you have it. Some of these things are a bit off, and some of them are rather close, but I really wanted to put this out there before Season One was over, so you know that more stuff is coming from Smooth Few Films during the gap between seasons. There will also be some Leet World related shorts (think the Christmas special) that I can’t talk about too much without giving stuff away.

Part 3 of the Finale is coming in a few days. If you’re wondering why it’s taking longer than we thought, word on the street is that it’s nearing 18 minutes in length. Wow.

EDIT: By the way, tomorrow’s my birthday. Big 25.

    Wow, thanks for the assurance that summer without Leet World goodness won’t be too unbearable. Excited about Web Zeroes, sounds great!!

  2. DarthRouge

    lol when I posted, there was no comments… it’s cool that they will be still doing things over the summer. I will be one of the 1st in line as this post states the point that I can’t be 1st at anything! LOL

  3. FireFox644

    its good to hear there are going to be other things in the works between seasons and again take ur time with the finale, im sure its going to be sweet 🙂

  4. DarthRouge

    the site was down for a minute… strange

    the reason I didn’t get 1st post is because I forgot to put in my e-mail address and it stopped me from posting, and by the time I entered it, it was too late 🙁

    I will never understand the attraction of “1st” comments, especially when you don’t have anything else to say. It seems particularly pointless. You crazy kids and your intarwebs…

    Don’t try to understand it Jeff, just let it happen.

    Though it is a bit ridiculous that the first 5 comments (and consequently our two comments) were about first post.

  7. L3gi0n

    I am going to go insane wondering what part 3 all has in it now that you are saying its nearing 18 min in length…ARGH. <3

  8. Wutey

    Wow 16 minutes full of epicness 😀 u guy’s are doing a great job and we here in the Netherlands love it 😀 ^^

  9. No0b-0-rAmA

    Will there still be continued podcasts and such after then end of season one but less often?

    Oh k I understand that you guys wanna get a little profit for your hard work and all but before you release the leet world soundtrack can you plz at least put the challenge activated song from part 2 of ep14 out for download? I mean this is the last thing we’ll ever ask for so plz at least put it out. I mean there are tons of other good music in the Leet World but this one is just so epic and I really would appreciate it if it were to be dled. Thx

    Let’s get real: that won’t be the last thing anyone asks for 😉

    Besides the voices/scripts, the music is the only thing that really belongs to us. If we ever hope to make money doing what we love, giving it all away for free (especially the really rocking tunes) is completely counter-productive to the end goal.

    if u wanna make money, t shirts, dvds would be a much better and appreciated as well

  14. JJ

    [quote comment=”8478″]if u wanna make money, t shirts, dvds would be a much better and appreciated as well[/quote]

    This is discussed on the FAQ page. The guys cannot sell DVDs because they do not have a license from Valve. Selling a DVD would be illegal.

    As for t-shirts, they have a much higher start-up cost than selling music digitally. Shirts might happen at some point far in the future, but right now a digital download is the easiest way for the guys to put out merchandise.

    Well, to look at it one way, all of the songs will have vocals by Player. You just won’t be able to hear them since they’ll be included as subtitles…

  17. Toph

    Keep up the awesome work guys. Lookin’ forward to havin a bowl of popcorn when I watch part 3.

  18. psylant

    FOR THE LOVE OF ALL BACK IT UP
    I had 24 minutes of stop motion parody work, all voiced over and edited. and it was going to be a nice mini-movie, and then BAM, hard drive failed.
    🙁

  19. Megabrain3000

    W001 18 minutes =D =D =D
    hmmmm, soundtrack…..sounds like a prty good idea…But you guys are too good to have to make an income on songs. Valve should pay you for this!
    The new serieses (serieses? or just series?) look prty cool, but….sigh….its not the same as TLW….
    T_T

  20. Stefan

    18 friken minutes….OMG….I DOn’t care if ct’s or t’s win but if mendoza win, i will kill everything arouind me(jk)’

    YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST 🙂
    I’M SORRY I AM YOUR BIGGEST FAN BUT I CAN’T BUY THAT SOUNDTRACK 🙁
    I’M ONLY 14 ! AND I CAN’T BUY ANYTHING OF INTERNET 🙁 :'(
    WILL IT BE FREE AFTER 2,3 MONTHS ??
    WILL IT Eddy ? 🙁

  22. pit173

    Whew… I am eagerly waiting for this soundtrack to be released. I just hope that there will be a downloadable version (as shipping it to Poland would probably cost more, than the CD itself)

  23. ninjaflashlight

    releasing a soundtrack is a awesome idea, because you cant sell dvd’s…so yea. all of you true fans our there need to buy the soundtrack, we need to support leet world!!!!

    I may not work with Smooth Few Films, or do anything related to their work at all, but I can say that your answer is without a doubt a flat out, “No.”

  27. Ninja

    Hahaha 5 minutes more than what I said. The final is going to be longer than a TV episode.

  28. Piano Man

    If the cd has that rocking awesome challenge activated shit on it, I’ll buy two.

    (not really but I liked that part of the finale a whole bunch. So I’ll buy one. Or three…)

  29. Funny Cracker Cheese Cakes

    You’re making a Halo Machinima series? Sweet..

    Happy Bungie Day btw.

  30. Asian

    Will the soundtrack be available on iTunes?
    Cause I got some cash left over on my Apple account. (Enough for a a couple CDs)

  31. awkook

    Will the soundtrack be under $9.16? because thats all i have on my itunes account. and will it be on itunes? because thats the only way i could buy it

  32. AlphaHawk

    Can’t wait. I would assume all this stuff will be done during the time between seasons 1 and 2? The traffic will probably drop, so there’s a good reason there…

  33. Conor

    <—-Wants a season 1 dvd box set, I would buy it. And I want TLW merc such as t-shirts, hats, thongs, pantyhose (Like Ellis’s dad) and of course coffee mugs, and a cortez teddy bear, because deep down hes a softie.

  34. Pl4y3r.

    Although I do realize it is illegal for Smooth Few Films to put TLW on a DVD and sell it, is there any problem with me making my own DVD for my personal use?

  39. xIronGolemx

    Whoot. In a year and a half i can finally buy stuff on my own, and the soundtrack is going to be near the top of my list!

  40. Mkilbride

    Yeah, I’m making my own Leet World DVD, although if you guys could do it yourself…I’d buy it, as it’d be much more professional than my weak DVD’s. Still, I know why you can’t, but I must share this with meh friends, it is epic . You’ve infact inspired me to play Counter-Strike again, and now I randomly mutter phrases from LTW…no one gets them and I look like a jackass. Lol.

  50. thelonepiper

    I have been following the series since the beginning. At first, I remember thinking, “Ah, it’s all right.” Not great. At about episode 4, my opinion changed. This machinima is freaking awesome! I am a huge fan of this series, and I can’t wait for the next season to come out!!

  51. Spartan 1138

    I know that it is illegal 4 u guys to make a DVD without licence, but is there anyway u can contact Valve? I mean if Bungie let Rooster Teath do it, why not u guys?

    p.s. happy b-day Eddy!

  52. Bruce_Lee

    WOOOOOOOOO #1-4 all the way. Happy b-day, and i would just like to say this: You guys will go down in Machinima history. yay!

  54. CanadianBaconPwnage

  56. Some Dude

    Happy Birthday M8, o and Btw if all the Music was made by Damn Dangerous doesnt that mean that he gets all the profit from you selling it? except if he is going to pay you to advertise it?

  57. Your Comrade

    well, i’m gonna check out the “web zeroes” and “g.r.i.e.f.”. And thanks for the information to your fans..

  60. Deathlancer

    buying soundtrack for bitch got served song. Oh and you must have the original recordings of that. I just love the bit where it goes “Did anyone get that…… Bitch got Served.” If you ever are alowed to sell dvd, plz dnt. I get soo angry. I understand sountrack and extras, and tshirts (one with Cortez woth speech bubble “You loco son of bitch”, World of Battlewar, Dick Sandwitch, Chet with “Bra” written over it and one with PLayer sayin Player FTW.) Maybe give trial of soundtrack

  72. Matt

    YOU CAN sell DVD’s actually only thing is you have to do it a special way similar to Linux. Have it available for free but cost extra if you want it all packaged and sent on a disk, But if u have all of it available for free you can do that.

    Its kind of like what “WOTS” did I think.

  73. Wolf

    Lol ill be sure to buy it, no i will not scam it off a website, no i will not try to hack onto your computer by tracing the IP you used to post the vids, 😛
