So! In the interest of full disclosure (or, more disclosure (than our precedent thus far of no disclosure)), I figured I’d give a wee bit of context!
We’re currently aiming to release the next two episodes by the end of 2012. Episode 4 should be out any week now, but Episode 5 won’t be out any sooner than October (which is closer than you think!) The first 5 episodes serve as kinda a first season (or, more like a pilot, when viewed in their entirety, I guess), with episode 5 being a finale deal, as we regather energy and get started on the next chunk. I’ve been over in Amsterdam since February, so we’ve only been able to work with what we shot before then, and we’ve had to do a lot of reinventing to get stuff to work that we would normally fix with a pick-up or reshoot. That’s why we’re holding off on ep 5, though- so we can film a few more quick scenes to make everything really fit together.
Question: Man, why do these things come out so slowly?
Answer: Psssssshhhhhh! Cause they’re a lot of work! But it’s true. They could be coming out a lot faster. Having a full time job that takes up 10+ hours a day doesn’t leave much time for Dynamo work. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, but soon The Mango Experience will be wrapped up, and I should be able to devote more time to this thing!
We also have an ever-increasing pool of incredible helpers. Nate Taylor is using some of his insanely precious time to work on the opening scene of Ep 5. Wesley Slover, Tim McCann, and Brendan Hogan are sitting in the wings just waiting for me to have picture lock on Ep 4, so they can start making fantastic sounds. The more help we have, the crazier we can make these things, and the faster we can get them out there. If you wanna be involved in this crazy thing, definitely send us an email at Karmapirates@gmail.com! Currently there isn’t any money involved in this thing, and we’re just doing it ’cause it’s fun to make things’.
Question: Why do people type “whilst” so much on the internet? We know you don’t say it in real life. Is it just to sound smart? Because you just sound awkward.
Answer: That’s a good question.
