I have been leaning more toward the black/green theme for a while now and I didn't really think the style and font of the original design reflected me very well. But I like this, I think it's a lot more me and looks a lot nicer. There may be a few things I didn't fix when making changes. So if you find any bugs, let me know.
Anyway, as you can see, that's not the main point. The teaser trailer for Brimstone Terrace just went up! If you haven't seen it, HERE IT IS.
It's pretty short and simple but it will give you a look at two of the voices, the art style and the opening theme by my awesome composer Ingmar de Vos. If anything, this is just to get people curious and make sure everyone knows it's happening, I suppose. But there you go! LOVE IT!
That's all I've got for now. But I'm hard at work on other things at the moment. Including the pilot and a short.

Okay children, here's the deal.
SMART & KGAGP:
So I have spent the last week preparing and eventually shooting a majority of a short that we will refer to as it's acronym KGAGP. We shot a good 80% of it on Saturday and were supposed to continue today. We did...but, we had to take a break because the camera's battery died on location. We were going to meet back up but on of the actors couldn't make it so we just got some pick up shots and ended up filming a nice little sketch called SMART.
I was going to hold on to it for a while and maybe polish it over time, but I just ended up sitting at my desk for a few hours editing it. I also just want to put something out. It's not TOO impressive. But I think it's fun. So give it a look see HERE.
Anyway, KGAGP broke 11 minutes with the footage we've got so far. I'm estimating it to be a little under 15 minutes long once it's done. All we have left are a couple more scenes, a few pick ups and retakes, then a little bit of ADR work. Then I can just work some editing magic on it and it will be done. It's looking pretty nice so far. If you're a fan of the Facebook page you would see some stills and already know that.
So I've got a bit of cool news I suppose. I had a meeting with my composer, Ingmar de Vos. Then on Saturday, he sent me his first go at the opening theme song. IT'S SO COOL! So there's that.
I also just got in the last set of lines I needed to do the teaser. I'm HOPING that I can get that out this Friday.
OTHER THAN THAT:
I was a guest on the commentary for Rain S2S4. You can check that out HERE.
That's about all for now, partner. Catch ya some where farther along the dusty trail or whatever.

I have quite a few things to talk to you about today. So, let’s begin with a few small things shall we?
A FEW SMALL THINGS:
Good news everyone! The show was picked up by Blip. It will have new episodes every month (I’m assuming on the last Friday of the month). This will be quite a workload and will really limit what I can do beyond the show as I will be trying to produce 20 minute hand drawn animated episodes every month (which is a fraction of the time I would really need). Essentially, for the next six months, my main focus will be this show and I may try to release at least one sketch a month as well, but they will be very small and I can’t guarantee them.
I’m going to put out a teaser this month (just to fill in the spot) but I think that the first episode will see the light of day near the end of June. *fingers crossed*
Like I said, other things will be very few in numbers with the series being my main priority. I’m sure I’ll find time to do other stuff and I will try to put a few things out. Between BRIMSTONE and all the other projects I have some affiliation with, I’m going to be very busy for the rest of the year.
As of right now, I’m still working on my big return sketch. It shaping up to be pretty good, we should be filming pretty soon and I don’t want to give it any sort of release date yet but you should see it within this month or the next. More updates as it draws closer.
Well, I don’t have much more to say. So yes...good day then...

Good evening boys and girls,
I come bearing good and bad news. So lets dive right in shall we?
Simply put, it’s not happening. For now at least. It’s being put on the shelf. We were skating on thin ice to begin with. There were a lot of things still up in the air. But, dealing with an certain actor’s union and complications with travel plans fucked it all up. I’m pretty disappointed that it happened. But honestly, there is quite a bit of relief that I won’t be pulling my hair out for the next 3 weeks. So this leads into some other things...
I do plan to start making some sketches this month. I’m finally coming back after a bit of a hiatus. I’ve got plenty of material that should be good after some touching up. But the one I plan on doing first has a script ready to go and I honestly think it is the funniest thing I have ever done. It will be quite the comeback.
I don’t know just yet when you should expect these things. But ya know...just...expect them.
So I am finished with my pitch video. It’s not exactly what I wanted it to be. But I think it’s good nonetheless. This show is reeking of talent and potential, so I’m really hoping that the pitch I should be doing very soon will go over well.
Cross your fingers, pray to whatever god(s) you believe in or just give me your sincerest wish of luck, because I really hope this works.
Speaking of pitches. The trailer for “The Controller” (a show I write for) was finished and released. The trailer was used as a pitch to Machinima. Unfortunately, they didn’t really like it. But the show goes on. I’m currently writing the pilot and I’m assuming that they are going to try and produce the show all by themselves. Here is their IndieGoGo campaign.
I’m so fucking sick of IndieGoGo campaigns!!!
THE PINK ELEPHANT PODCAST:
Oh and how could I forget about this lovely thing?
Last week we didn’t do an average episode it was just our wonderful host Joey, some penis named Zedd and myself doing a bit of an indie music showcase. Kind of like a radio type thing. There are some really cool tunes and Joey & I improvise some pretty awesome commercials.
You should definitely check that out HERE.
As I type this we just finished recording another episode. In this one we swap stories and in celebration of May the 4th, we chat about Star Wars. There are a few errors thanks to one person named James, but it’s up now. So check it out HERE.
ONE LAST THING:
I know what you’re thinking. "Tyler, if you aren’t doing DELIRIUM, then does that mean you won’t be putting out a feature or even a short this year?” Well, that young lad, is an excellent question. Up until recently that would have been a sad yes. But no longer! I have plans for a feature-length comedy to be shot later this month. It’s still really rough (doesn’t have a script), but I think if I do it right, it will be awesome. I THINK it will come out by the end of this year...I THINK...
Anyway, these are the things that are currently set in motion.
More news when it...ya know...happens. Dude, fuck, whatever! I’m bad at ending these! Leave me alone!
