Report Time

Just noticed it's been about a month since my last update. Sorry about that. There's not a whole heck of a lot to report at the moment. We're currently in the thick of things right now, trying to shoot, edit, and post entries on a weekly basis is kind of what we've been aiming for with varying degrees of success, as you can probably tell.

Speaking of editing, after having another rendering incident similar to what happened at the end of last season, I finally did away with editing MH on Sony Vegas and shifted it over to Adobe Premiere. I've used it to edit everything outside of MH for years now, but didn't really know how to recreate some of the effects I had used in Vegas, so I was always a bit reluctant to make the move. But now, Entry #54 and on has been put together with it and it's been going much more smoothly. I think I was asking too much of Vegas, especially with the longer or more effects heavy entries, since I'm pretty sure it's barely considered prosumer software. So fingers crossed at no more fake outs with missing upload times.

We've shot a portion of the next entry already, and will probably be going out to finish it off early Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Despite the part where I have to roll out of bed at 6 in the morning (making sure Joseph is up is another matter entirely), I actually kind of prefer early morning shoots. The last one we did was Entry #51, I believe. It was very laid back, and nice and cool outside. I'd go so far as to say it was the most relaxing shoot we've ever done. Hopefully that trend will continue when we go out next.

Anyway, one last thing. Don't know if I've said this yet, and if I haven't it's long overdue, but I really want to thank all of you for supporting us by buying the DVDs. Sales continue to be steady, which is a huge HUGE morale boost for us over here. So thank you so much for enabling us to continue doing what we enjoy doing.

Be sure to high five your moms today too, by the way.
