Here’s the latest videochat with the audience. I was a little late getting this one out since there were sound sync problems in the recording that I wanted to fix before posting this on Youtube. This one was a little more structured than previously as I tried to answer a lot of submitted questions, though it reverted to the old chaos by the end. I cover a lot of topics, including Planetside 2, budgeting advice, more produdction aspects about the movie, Gamergate, the new Star Wars, and career and school advice amongst other things. I ramble a lot, but I think it was slightly more coordinated than the previous times.
The next videochat will be on Feb 7, 4pm EST again. I don’t know yet if it will be on twitch or another chat service, I have to do more research first. I’ll have an announcement on that ahead of time if I do change venues. Also if you have questions / topics you’d like discussed in the next videochat, either email firstname.lastname@example.org, or else reply in this thread.

AUDITION FOR ASSISTANT WRITERS:
This is mentioned in the video also, but I’m cautiously considering any applications for being an assistant writer on the movie script. I have the main plot and many scenes established, but I’m interested in help with smaller scenes and subplots to help tie everything together. This is going to be for an adventure-comedy with a mystery element also. I more or less have the “adventure” part laid out and have lots of good comedy, but I really want to have this script be the best it can be and I think having additional writer could definitely benefit the movie as a whole.
If you have background in comedy writing (mysteries are also a bonus) and are interested in having a shot at writing part of the movie script, send me a sample of your comedic writing to my main email address (email@example.com). If I like your style, I can consider you for the movie itself. I do want to emphasize that this will be THE hardest position to get in the movie and I will be absolutely merciless in considering applicants. So odds are, you’ll be rejected. Afterall, I’m looking for someone who can write some of the scenes BETTER than I can. I won’t be mean to anyone, but I consider the script the single most important aspect of the movie, so it’s not an area I’m willing to compromise on. That said, you don’t have to worry about typos or minor mistakes, it’s your content and style that I’ll be most interested in.
Finally, something I forgot to mention in the videochat, a lot of the download links to Civil Protection and other videos were down, those have since been fixed, so they should be working again.
