At Long Last

I know it's been a long wait, but we will finally be able to return from the hiatus on November 1st.

Starting the first week in November, we will have three new updates per week for you to enjoy. We plan to release one Bucking Sailboat episode, one Contradictionary comic, and one Malex Minute episode every single week! For a few months, anyway…

So we're clear, Bucking Sailboat is broken up into seasons. Season One is thirteen episodes long, and we expect to launch one new episode per week at least into the start of next year. After that, we'll decide what to do based on what you guys think.

We've all been working very hard, and we honestly can't wait to share all this new stuff with you.

Only a couple more weeks...

I know this sounds daft, but I was actually wondering about that shirt. I didn't remember Peter having one like it on that filming trip, but I figured I just must not have noticed it.

I was thoughtful of you to edit out the hubbub and noise of the rowdy and appreciative crowd, Alex. It made hearing your words much easier. X-D

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Yaaay!

I can't wait to see all the horrible things you've been doing to my Sweetheart all this time.

So far all I've heard are horrible rumors o.o

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

Wait...What?

Did you say, "Hide your women and children?" 0_0 :-O

Substantial Progress!

Hey guys! I just wanted to mention a few things that have been going on lately.

As you know, Bucking Sailboat is a sketch comedy, which means that all of pre-production and production was based on brainstorming funny segments and producing them as quickly as possible.

When we "wrapped" in August, we were basically left facing a massive pile of raw material that (by and large) had not yet been cut together. Moreover, much of the material required quite a bit of post-production magic to get it where it needed to be.

It turned out, we could not finish digging through that pile in time to meet our "Autumn 2010" deadline.

So, I drove down to Columbus to meet with my brothers for an emergency meeting a couple of weekends ago, and we "mapped out" the whole season.

This was very complex, because there were so many factors I wanted to juggle for each episode and across the whole season. For example, we have many sketches that were obviously filmed in the winter. If at all possible, I wanted to make sure those were distributed well across the season, to prevent accidentally making the season too lopsided in any particular direction.

Anyway, because we were able to map out the whole season, we were able to prioritize the remaining post-production work, and guarantee that segments get finished in time without being terribly overwhelmed by the enormous amount of work that still needs to be done for the season as a whole.

Last night, that prioritization paid off, and I was able to assemble the very first episode of Bucking Sailboat. Keep in mind, to this point, I had never actually seen an episode of Bucking Sailboat. But last night, I was finally able to see what I had imagined for so long.

It was a really neat feeling.

Stay tuned! November 1st is coming up fast!
