Well, we are still hard at work on Episode Eight. And when I say hard, I mean it. This week was the most rigorous week we’ve had as far as Smooth Few Films goes, so it’s been pretty nuts. While we’re not keen on giving out release dates (any number of things can cause a delay when working on an episode), it should be here at some point next week. We’ll give you more when we have a better idea.
There won’t be reason to stop showing up, though, because our Halo short will be up in the next day or two! This is pretty exciting for us, and we think that you guys should enjoy it. Now if you’re wondering to yourself “What? Why have they been doing this Halo thing instead of TLW”, it’s because we are submitting it to a contest that ends this week. In addition to that, this realistically delayed the release of Episode Eight by less than a day, because it was worked on at points when all 3 of us could not be together to film TLW stuff. So no worries.
Well, I know it’s been a long wait, but “Episode Four: Dust 2 Dust” is finally here. This episode took a little longer for several reasons: 1) Daniel was out of town for a week, 2) one of our computers (mine) no longer runs Steam, so we’re down an “actor”, and 3) we wanted this episode to be the best it could be, so we pushed it back a couple of days to continue to work on it. Typically, we will be releasing every two weeks, and this last wait (which was three weeks plus a few days) will be about as long as they come.
The end result of all of that is an episode we’ve worked pretty hard on, so we hope that you all enjoy it. Anyone that’s played a match of CSS (or any online game for that matter) should get a kick out of it.
Also, Halo 3 had very little to do with the delay. Although, it held up our music a little. Just a little.
Just a quick little update for you guys. Things are going well, and it seems that lots of people are coming to check out Episode Three, which is awesome (scroll down for it if that’s why you’re here).
Also, we’ve recently been listed as a “featured series” on Machinima.com along with other notable entries such as RedvsBlue, Pathfinders, and Civil Protection, so be sure and check it out! And, just like the title of this post indicates, I have a little present: Episode Two and Three audio outtakes.
