On Domination

Happy November, guys and gals.

Just wanted to stop in say it was great to see everyone’s comments on The Last Word. As I said before, I think Daniel did a spectacular job on it, and it shows. It’s a touching short, and something I’m particularly fond of.

Anyway, I promise there will be a couple of regular posts here in the next couple of weeks, including a range of topics that we still get asked a lot of questions about. I’ve been terribly busy with some other things going on personally, and that looks to clear up in the next week or two. But for now, enjoy another free track from the TLW soundtrack.

This one is the Domination Man’s theme from Episode 8 of TLW. You know, the one that plays during the entire cheesy GMod log fiasco and the zany antics surrounding that. I’m a big fan of what Jace did when he built this out for the soundtrack. I think you will be, too.


One of the things people keep asking about is if there’s a way to still buy the soundtrack. Right now, the answer to that is no. Basically, sales had diminished over the last few months to where it was more expensive to keep the store going than it was to just take it down. If you hang around, we’ll just be releasing it every week for free from here on out.

In other news, who out there has played Black Ops? Thoughts? We reviewed it up on GamerSushi and I’ve been dying to play it.

A Late Spring Break

BeachThe horse picture has nothing to do with the post, but came up as one of the top results for “beach” on Google, which gave me a hearty lulz. So, there you have it.

As I mentioned last week, we are actually on something of a late Spring Break from releasing Web Zeroes for the next couple of weeks. That’s not to say we aren’t still working on the show, which we totally are. So it’s not really much of a real break. How lame is that? Regardless of the nature of the break’s lameness, the show will resume on its normal release format on May 19th, so hold on to your butts until that moment.

I say that things are “wild” all the time, so I’m trying to expand my vocabulary in that regard a bit, but it’s shocking that we’re half way through the second season. We’re looking forward to getting the rest of it shot and delivered. It gets way more meta. Some won’t like that, I don’t think, but we are fans of meta things. Hell, Chet was always Meta Guy in Leet World.

In other random SFF related news, you may have missed the fact that we run a pretty awesome video game Web site known as GamerSushi. We’ve got a cool community over there, so come swing by. We just released our first podcast, too, which features SFF dudes Nick, JJ and myself. Go check it out.

You also might have missed Daniel’s appearance on Film Riot, another Revision3 show about film production and techniques. We shoot Web Zeroes on a Canon 7D DSLR. If you’re unaware, DSLR filmmaking is kind of a hot topic right now, as it enables people to shoot high quality projects for a relatively low budget. Daniel gives a pretty cool breakdown of how we do our audio process for the show, so it’s a nice behind-the-scenes look at Web Zeroes, if you’re interested. Daniel appears at the 6:40 mark.

On Future Menacing and Social Media

I just wanted to write a quick update to say thanks to everyone for the comments you left and e-mails you sent about Episode 14 of Web Zeroes. We were really excited to finally get it out for everyone to see, and I think the things we learned over the course of Season 1 really showed. Not to toot our collective horns or anything. We do that enough to each other. This paragraph is getting progressively stranger and more full of innuendo. That’s what she said.

Episode 15 will be out on Wednesday (for us North Americanos, at least), and is titled The Red Headed Menace. It’s got some cool stuff in it: some beards, some chicks and a cowboy hat. Oh, and a game that involves shocking.

While I had your attention for a second, I wanted to direct you guys to a few places you may or may not know about. If you didn’t know, we’ve got ourselves quite a slew of social media handles going on at the moment. If you’re interested, here’s a bit of a link farm:

Also, you may not know that we run a video game Web site in addition to this one, called GamerSushi. It’s a pretty cool place with some great discussions and cool people. Come hang out, follow GS on Twitter or fan GS on Facebook.

PAX Rules

Just a quick update: PAX is incredible. Yesterday was practically a sensory overload in terms of going places and seeing all kinds of crazy stuff. We said hello to people from Bungie, Mega 64, Felicia Day, RoosterTeeth, and we also saw a ton of unreleased games like Dead Space, Fallout 3, etc. I’ll write a bigger post with pictures about it soon enough, but it was just a very cool day overall for us in terms of handing out DVD’s and business cards and trying to get our name out there.

If you’re interested in reading more at the moment in terms of actual games, I’ve put a couple of things up on GamerSushi, including a blurb about the coolest thing we saw all day in a clip of an animated Red Vs Blue series. I’ve also put up a video of MK vs DC (Batman vs the Joker!), and there are more videos coming over the next few hours.

In Seattle!

Daniel and I are here in Seattle and geeking out a little about attending PAX in the morning. Me more so than him. It’s been a long day of traveling and getting some major junk together. Getting what together, you may ask. DVD’s and business cards, actually.

We’ll be handing these bad boys out to some folks in the gaming biz over the weekend. The DVD’s have the TLW season recap, some of our shorts and the first episode of Web Zeroes, due out next week. And before you ask, no, you can’t have one (sorry, supplies are limited). This will be a good way for us to get our name out there to some of these cool dudes that we’ll be meeting.

Now, it’s time for bed and then off to adventures tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll have some cool Smooth Few Films related news to report shortly. In the meantime, keep an eye on GamerSushi for videos and pictures from the PAX floor.

Edit: We’re handing these out to business-types, not just random people. Thought I should point that out.

Introducing: GamerSushi

GamerSushi is a new gaming blog run by your lovable dudes at Smooth Few Films, plus a couple of friends. It’s a place where we talk about all things gaming related, where the focus is “Byte Sized Bits” of gaming info and features.

Nick and Jeff did a great job putting the site together, and I think you gamers (which is most of you) will really like it. GamerSushi should be updated with gaming content several times a day, especially during PAX this weekend. While there I will be posting videos and pictures of games that aren’t even out yet that I view on the showroom floor.

Anywho, go check it out, register and join in on the discussions. The site’s not quite finished just yet, and is a work in progress, so be patient during the growing pains. Also, this is just one of a few sites we’re working on. We hope to see you guys there regularly.
