New Jim Sterling Podcast, Teenage Pokemon, other stuff
// Submitted @ 10:03 AM on 11.09.2013
Hi everybody! I've been working on a lot of stuff. Here is some of it!
Jim Sterling, Conrad Zimmerman and I used to host Podtoid. Now we host a show called The Dismal Jesters. It's almost exactly like how Podtoid used to be, except with some differences. It's funny how just hanging the name and the venue of a podcast can bring a different psychological element to the chemistry. We're having a good time with it so far and I bet we'll keep going for a while.
We're also working on a new episode of Teenage Pokemon. I wasn't sure I was going to keep going with the series, as producing Season 2 was really exhausting and anxiety inducing. Then I had an idea I that I couldn't stop thinking about, asked one of the animators if he could put together the visuals relatively quickly, and checked with Machinima to see if they could pay him. It all worked out, and the episode should be coming this month, next month at the latest.
We've also been working on a new cartoon for Machinima and a beautiful man named Tor about drunk Nintendo characters. It's pretty cute. First episode for that should be done this month too.
The big-ish thing in the oven is a new show for Dtoid with Caitlin Cooke. Dtoid has a loooooot of new stuff planned right now, so it's not a sure thing that this show will fit in the overall picture, but I hope it does, because Caitlin is hilarious. We've only show a pilot so far, but is was so much fun to make. Hopefully we'll get to keep making more.
