Well I have bad news in that despite my absolute best efforts, I don’t think the next Civil Protection episode will be done in time for Halloween. I’ve been devoting all my free time to this and have neglected a lot of other things as a result, but it still hasn’t been fast enough. There are multiple reasons for this and I plan to go into detail about them after the episode is completed. It’s mainly dealing with engine bugs and a bit of a workflow nightmare.
While I probably will take a break on Halloween, I won’t let up on my pace any and plan to continue working on this until it’s done. I can’t predict how long the remaining music for the episode will take, but once I’ve done as much as I can on my end, I’ll resume work on Freeman’s Mind if everything else isn’t finished yet. Right now I currently hope to have all the filming done before this weekend. You can continue to monitor progress periodically in the progress chart in the upper right corner of the site. Once the “editing” bar is completely green, you can assume I’m working on Freeman’s Mind.
Anyway, my apologies to everyone who was looking forward to this for Halloween, I’m disappointed by this more than anyone. I’ve been doing everything I can to try and make this episode happen, but I didn’t want to wait until the last minute to tell people the results. The parts of the episode that are done are coming out very well I think. Also Craig (voice of Dave) told me that The Simpsons isn’t having their Halloween special until November either, so that makes me feel better about this. I imagine The Simpsons have more resources to work with than I do.
Short version: The episode will be late and I’ll resume work on Freeman’s Mind as soon it’s done.
