BHS Blogress Report: 2018, Week 3 – Too Cold to be Clever

Week 3 – Too Cold to be Clever

Silent InvenTOYry Episode 06 is done!

And thanks to another round of YouTube auto-flagging drama, I’ve set up an alternate account at Daily Motion to post my episodes with their intended soundtracks. This is going to be the case from now on: the versions with the public domain music go up on YouTube, and the versions with music from their source material go up on Daily Motion. Here’s the link: http://www.dailymotion.com/silentinventoyryuncut

So if you watched ’til the end of the video (and you should have), you saw the announcement that I’m celebrating “Precure Month” by doing two more Precure-themed reviews in the coming weeks. Both forthcoming episodes will be Semi-Shorts, and the timing on both of them may vary depending on shipping times and other factors, but I’m at least reasonably certain that both of them will be worth watching.

That’s about it for news of my projects this week, honestly. Work continues on all the usual stuff.

MEILIN STILL EXISTS. Thank you FantasyCrest for sending me word, you made my Sunday morning very happy indeed. Now I just need to hope she appears in person.

Hate cold hate cold hate cold hate hate hate hate hate cold…

BHS Blogress Report: 2018, Week 2 – So Pure

Week 2 – So Pure

After doing about seven hours worth of work on Silent InvenTOYry today, I realized that I wasn’t going to finish it by tonight, as I had planned. Which sucks, but I did at least make a ton of progress on it. I only need to shoot one more segment and then maybe reshoot my outro, then I’ll be done. I’m gonna push to get it uploaded to YouTube by Friday at the absolute latest.

Speaking of InvenTOYry, by the way: I had to delete and reupload the SoC Megazord episode, as I caught a pretty serious audio sync error in its last few minutes when I watched it again a few weeks ago. See, YouTube still has that wonderful system that forbids you from changing a raw video file after it’s been uploaded, so if you catch a mistake, the only option is repeating the whole process again with the fixed file. I’d appreciate it if you all could watch, fave, share, and upvote it again, since that one’s currently my most expensive episode. Thank you.

Cardcaptor Sakura: The Clear Card Arc‘s anime has finally started! And oh, what a start it was. The animation was drop-dead gorgeous, and seeing and hearing Sakura, Kero, Tomoyo, and Shaoran again felt like coming home. I’ve long espoused that the original CCS is a pure, fluffy, damn near perfect cinnamon roll of an anime, and Clear Card looks to be continuing the tradition. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but: I kind of wish Sailor Moon Crystal had gone this route. I mean, not that I’m knocking Crystal… I’ve said before that it improved massively as it went on, and I understand that there are multiple reasons why it couldn’t and didn’t retain all of the cast and music from the original. It’s just that when I see the huge, lavish budget put into Clear Card and when I hear not only the entire original cast returning but selections from the first anime’s soundtrack… I’m like “Come on, Toei. This is how it’s done.” Maybe when they finally put out those Season 4 movies, they’ll take note?

Ah, anyway. Sakura is a terrific antidote for these stressful times. For the next three months, at least, I’ll have a surefire way to brighten my mood on Sundays.

BHS Blogress Report: 2018, Week 1 – New Years D(el)ay

Week 1 – New Years D(el)ay

I hate to start off the year with news of another delay, but hey, I’ve got a decent reason this time: I took advantage of a recent Humble Bundle to upgrade my video editing software from Vegas 13 to Vegas 14 Pro, which has given me a whole new array of options to tinker with for Silent InvenTOYry. Unfortunately, since Pro 14 is such a big step up from what I had before, I’m having to sort of relearn the program on the fly. Hence, I’ve temporarily paused production on Episode 06 so that I can figure out what I’m doing. I think the end product will be quite impressive, though. I’m aiming to have the episode done by the 15th, and there’s a Semi-Short that I’ll be working on very soon after that.

I’ve discovered that the end-of-the-month Patreon deadline is indeed a fantastic motivator for me to get off my ass and write Tasakeru chapters. Yet again, I managed to finish a chapter on the last day of the month, making four months in a row that I’ve been able to update on time! Not that I want procrastinating until the last minute to become a habit or anything, but… if it helps get the chapters out so I can get paid, so much the better.

Goals for this year are below. I’m not doing resolutions this year, because knowing me I’ll forget about most of them by mid-February.

  • Finish Soulsnatcher; start on and possibly finish Book IV: Twilight Dreams
  • Finish the long-neglected Book II Appendix, and begin the Appendix for Book III
  • Rerecord the Tasakeru soundtrack in Music Maker, transfer all tracks to BandCamp, and make them available for streaming/download
  • At least two full InvenTOYry episodes and at least three Semi-Shorts

And of course, I’ll be continuing Shattered Skies and Viluy’s Database as well.

Here’s to a new year. May it be better than the last.
