Two years ago, I went to visit Daniel, Nick and Jace in Los Angeles. While sitting in Daniel and Nick’s backyard at 4 in the morning, we semi-drunkenly hashed out a very basic idea of a plot for a third season of Leet World, should we ever decide to do one. At the time, we were only goofing around, the way that drunk friends do where they secretly mean the things they’re saying.
The idea stuck. The stars aligned earlier this year and we got the itch to make something together again. We started doing tests in Source Filmmaker back in March/April. If at any time we had hit significant road blocks, we would have stopped and called it a nice dream that wasn’t possible. But all of our tests got better and easier. In the summer, we began writing and assessing what some of our needs would be were we to move forward.
About a month ago, we knew it was time to make a decision. So we made a trailer.
We’re overwhelmed by the response that everyone has had to the announcement of Leet World season 3. In all honesty, we thought it would go unnoticed and that we’d have to spend some time letting the old fans know the show was coming back. But everyone grabbed it and spread the word quickly. Your enthusiasm for Leet World is one of the big reasons we decided to get back in the saddle all these years later, so in a way, you guys are the ones to thank.
I don’t want to say too much more about where we’re at in the production calendar; there will be more to come on that front soon. We’ll be making some more announcements in the coming weeks (and months). We can’t wait for you to see some of what we’re working on.
For now, keep spreading the word, and stay tuned for more.
So there’s a fun article over at GamerSushi about Valve, Half-Life 2, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and how Valve might be the best storytellers in the gaming business. Go read it.
And now on to more important things…
We’re ridiculously close to Season 2 of The Leet World. Stupid close, even. Perhaps burro close, but that could be stretching it. As I’ve said before, whenever no posts are happening on the front page, that means that there’s probably a lot going on in our silly machinima production realm. We’re pounding away at finishing Episode 1, and we’ve even started doing some work on Episode 3 at this point.
There’s also a new commercial from the CT’s for you to watch. Those guys have been getting around lately, doing lots of promotions. Maybe the stress is getting to them? Soon though, they’ll be back in their natural habitat. Video after the jump!
Wow, I’ve said it before, but lots of thanks to everyone who has been supporting us by purchasing the TLW Season One Soundtrack. It was a labor of much love by Jace. I think the coolest thing of all is that the people that are buying it seem to love it in a totally passionate want-to-touch kind of way.
All of that aside, it’s been a long time since you’ve all seen or heard any shred of information concerning the whereabouts of one Mr. Adam Sizlewski (AKA Sizzler). Well, I figured I’d bring along a little teaser for Season 2 of The Leet World which finally reveals his location, and maybe ties up a few loose ends on the way.
Also, it tells you when to expect Season 2. Try not to hyperventilate, but it’s cool if you are, I am too. Video after the jump!
PAX is officially over, and the weekend was worth every penny we spent getting there. It’s always been my dream to attend something like this, a video game convention I suppose, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. If you’ve been reading up on it over at GamerSushi, you’ll know that I’ve played a ton of games and seen a lot of cool things.
In a world overrun with hoodlums, criminals and vagabonds— griefers — one government agency rises to take a stand against an abomination that threatens the very existence of Matchmaking.
This is a trailer for our new Halo mini-series that should be hitting next month, titled, as you all know, G.R.I.E.F. It’s going to be an action/comedy series with a heavy emphasis on the action. We’re excited about it, and you should be too.
Stay tuned to the site for some more cool announcements and extras this week (some of it TLW related) that you definitely don’t want to miss. Huzzah!
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.
And a glimpse of what is on the horizon. Daniel spent some time putting this recap of Season One together, to see where the show has come from and the kind of ground that our characters have covered. While we didn’t have time to hit every single thing, we wanted to touch on the most important aspects of the story as it relates to the Season Finale.
Stay until the end, and you’ll even get a sneak peek not only of what is to come in the Season Finale, but also a window into the release.
If you spot an angry beard, be careful. He is like the Cloverfield monster, wreaking general chaos and causing disorientating camera work. And lo, his name be Nick.
Typically, audio outtakes encompass two full episodes, but Episode 13, being our longest and wordiest so far, had enough material all its own to provide you guys with some mega-lulz. Right-click to save, if you must.
The Leet World is a reality show about Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists facing off against one another, to determine which team is the best of all. A season consists of three challenges. The first team to win two challenges (out of three), become the victors for the season.
The Counter-Terrorists have already won once. Can they pull it off again? For more reasons than one, a lot is on the line in Episode Eleven. We were kind enough to provide you guys with a trailer. Enjoy!
It’s not quite candy and flowers, but it will have to do.
We try to deliver when we say that there are going to be some nice extras, so I bring a gift: a trailer for Episode Ten of The Leet World. Work on the episode is going well, with the bulk of shooting now complete. It should be out at some point next week, barring some calamity of the heavens. Which, if you’ve been around our “studio”, can (and frequently does) happen. In the meantime, there will be plenty of treats for you guys between now and then- our new short is on its way rather soon.
