Hi all! It’s been a couple of weeks since our last update, and for good reason. We’re more than a little busy at the moment touching parts of 4 different episodes in various (sometimes dirty) ways. In fact, we’ve hit a really huge milestone in production and are ready to check out our first cut of Episode 1.
Does this mean the episode’s almost finished? Not at all. Rough cuts are just what they sound like, and barely watchable unless you know what you’re looking for. It’s more of the bones of an episode, and it’s after the rough cut that you really pile on the meat.
At the same time we’re getting ready to start cutting Episode 2, we’re building the scenes for Episode 3 and working on maps for Episode 4. There’s a lot of stuff to juggle, but we finally feel like we’ve nailed our production pipeline down and things are really soaring.
But in addition to those things, we’ve got some other stuff going on creatively as well. Daniel, for instance, has been working with his comedy group, The Magnificent, whose hilarious video Water Mouth just passed 340,000 views on Funny or Die recently. You guys should check out more of their stuff.
In addition, I just had some big news drop about a project I’ve been working on for the last year — a Red vs. Blue book I’ve been writing with Rooster Teeth and Dey Street Books! It’s coming out on November 17 in book stores and is going to be really funny and full of stuff Red vs. Blue fans will love. You should pre-order it because then maybe I’ll get to write more books some day.
Anyway, that’s a quick (but full) update on where we are at the moment. Thanks for checking in on Leet World — we’ve got some cool stuff coming soon.
Hi Guys, exciting times! Any word on a release date for the series and are you going to be dropping the entire season at once netflix style or one episode at a time?
Nothing more definitive than Winter 2015. Right now we’re still on target for that. WE have a date that we’re trying to release on internally, but SFM is seriously a bear to work with. Plus this season gets pretty big…
The hope is to release each episode at a scheduled time, weekly. Still not sure on episode count yet. Our episodes are running long, page-wise, but we’ll see what it translates to on screen, and whether or not we need to cut certain episodes in two.
All the thumbs up! … I have two right now…I’ll be “acquiring” a couple more for you guys though
Daniel is going places 😀
