Adrift, Yet Accomplished

The comments and views are still coming in for episode 8, and it’s all still such nice feedback and enthusiasm pointed in our direction. I’ve only just finished my initial episode-wrap up work. The episode parts on YouTube are all closed captioned, I scanned in my personal copy of the episode 8 script with all my shot notes in the margins for the donation perks where people get a digital copy of it and the few who get a bound copy of it, got the full episode to Ryan to run unbroken on our website, I made and mailed the master discs for the episode 8 DVD and the 1-8 DVD perks to the Harris boys—the wonderful father/son team who duplicate our discs as a contribution to the show, and I made a new Intro to PoPS video for our YouTube Channel. It’s 85 seconds long, has less story-spoilers, more show-flavor, and I think it’s a better indication of the tone of the show with enough VFX to show what we can do on that front:

Plus, the thumbnail is just B.A.-all-the-way. The B.A. Stands for badass. One of my favorite shots from the series so far. Not just because I’m the one in focus.

I might do a video update about my captioning process in the next few weeks, because I finally got a system together that I think works pretty well.

Anyhow, now that I’ve done my part on the initial donation fulfillment and got the captioning put to bed, I have a couple days where I can actually take a break if I want to. Like tonight. I may have a quick Skype talk to do for the update this week, but other than that I might actually lounge around and watch a movie. On a weeknight! Before the show I spent A LOT more time watching movies. I wonder what I’ll watch? It’s so exciting. Being out from under another episode—especially one that’s been so warmly received—makes me feel a little adrift. Just untethered for a moment. Eliza told me last night that she thinks I don’t really know what to do with myself right now. It’s true. I feel like I should be doing something more. Eh. I’ll start writing episode 9 in a few days. Until then, Happy 4th of July, Americans!

Thanks for reading.
