Quick Update

Whew. It's been a pretty hectic couple of weeks. School is starting to pick up again. I'm taking more hours this semester than I've ever taken. Weak, I know. But I think things are starting to come back together. Hopefully.

Joseph and I are headed out tomorrow to finally do some shooting and a little more location scouting. There's probably going to be at least one more shoot after tomorrow at the current location, then I'll start editing everything together. These next few entries have required a lot of planning, but I've got my fingers crossed that it'll all have been worth it when it's finished.

It's all taking a little bit longer than I'd hoped, as usual. Thanks, everyone, for being patient. I guess you're all used to it by now, right?

No Time to Breathe

I couldn't be happier with how everything has been working out with Marble Hornets thus far. I've been reading everywhere that people are excited for the story to be picking up again. This is definitely what we hoped would happen from the very beginning of season two. We knew that a lot of people were going to start getting antsy with the claustrophobic nature of the hotel entries, but we kept the slow burn going in order to make it that much more satisfying once it starts moving forward again. From what I've been reading (and I've been looking through a lot), we've accomplished that pretty nicely. High five, team!

That being said, it's time to get back to work. With the posting of Entry #33, we have pretty much exhausted our current stash of raw footage. That means we have to get back out there and do some more actual shooting. But before doing that, we've got to do a little preproduction. Things like finalizing the "roadmap" for the next batch of entries and getting rehearsals done. It shouldn't take too long, but there's probably going to be a little extra time between now and the next entry. Don't worry though, it won't be anything compared to some of the gaps we had during season one. That's a promise!


Here's another behind the scenes-esque picture. I think explaining the context will ruin it, though:

Maybe we'll tell you about it one day. Maybe in the special features section of some magical disc read by lasers. Who can say.
