As the title of the post dictates, Episode 5 is now up on Blip! I mentioned this in the Episode 4 commentary, but don’t expect this new episode to be on the same scale as the last two. At least in terms of length. We decided it would be wise to reel back a little bit, make this more of a comedy episode and have it be a calm before the storm.
And what a storm it will be! We actually finished Episode 5 almost a week ago so I’ve spent that time getting a head start on Episode 6. If you don’t already know, Episode 6 is the season finale. So naturally, it’s going to be pretty packed with content, wrapping a lot of stuff up. The script is around 45ish pages which is about double the length of a regular episode. I don’t know how long the episode will be when it’s all done. But I’m pretty excited for this one. Due to it being the longest and most challenging episode, I sort of have to do nothing but focus on this. I might try to do a podcast during production, but we’ll see how that goes (more on that later).
We have gameplan set out and I hope everything goes according to plan. It’s been a long, challenging project. Hopefully in the end it will all be worth it.
Some of you reading this might be thinking, why haven’t I talked about the whole “getting cancelled” thing that I tweeted about. I’m going to cover that in a separate post. Rest assured. This is only a minor setback for us. We have a plan B.
So, there might be some other questions hanging in the air.
How did we do at AOFA?
I don’t know. From what I’ve been told, the pilot was well received. We were supposed to be told what the top ranking films were a couple days ago, but that didn’t happen. So we’ll see. Fingers crossed.
What’s going on with the podcast?
Again, I kind of don’t know. Most of the episodes are down right now because Joey hasn’t renewed our Pro account on Soundcloud. He’s talked about working out a solution, but it has yet to happen. I’m ready to get things fixed and get another episode out, but that isn’t up to me right now. If the Soundcloud wasn’t in disrepair at the moment, I would have just hosted an episode myself. Right now, it’s just a waiting game. We’ll see what Joey’s plans are.
On one last note, after this first season of Brimstone Terrace is complete, there will be some changes coming up. With pretty much everything. This website will look and be ran very differently. Right now, we’re just waiting for the right time to announce everything. Just expect changes.
That’s all for now children.

I haven't done an actual update in a while. So what have I been up to in all this time?
I'm pretty sure I mentioned that I was moving in the previous post. So now I'm mostly done with that. I swear man, I haven't had a single day where I could just relax. If I'm not unpacking, I'm animating, if I'm not animating I'm at work, if I'm not doing any of those things I'm getting a bit of sleep.
And work! Holy shit! Work! I transferred from the store I worked at to the one in the city I now live in. I used to get about 8 hours a week, which was stupid. Now I get 8 hour days and only one day off. Which is also stupid. "But Tyler, you're making more money! Life is all about money!" No. Time is more valuable to me than money to me. So I'm sort of wishing I had a middle ground to make up for all the work on animation that I can't do. I realize these are totally first world problems. Right now I just need a bit of balance to reach my ideal situation until I eventually change things up.
I've been working on Episode 5 obviously. It was going great. Then I moved. I've been trying to make up for all the time I've lost but it's hard when I'm not totally settled yet. I've gotten 2 out of 7 scenes animated. So it's been a very slow process an it's kind of bumming me out. Hopefully I'll get some more time and things will pick up.
Want a still or something? Well, here's a still or something.
But something pretty cool happened which I don't think I mentioned on the website yet. Brimstone Terrace's pilot is a selection in the American Online Film Awards. It's pretty cool. They're currently having their Spring Showcase in which people can watch and rate films. If you want to help us get some sweet ratings you can see us HERE. You will need a screening pass unfortunately. But if you go HERE you can get a discounted one for 3$. You can help us have a chance at an Audience Award or something and check out some other films as well.
Also in Brimstone news, I posted the commentary for Episode 4 featuring Chris and I. Watch that HERE.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Like I said, I've been super busy so I haven't had much time to do anything else. I'm trying to get the next podcast to happen but that's not 100% up to me. Hopefully that will happen soon.
I talk about almost all of this in a little update video. You can watch it here...
Catch you later everyone!
