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.


  1. Troy, in your opinion as one of the creators of the series, is Alex's behavior over the last six years solely due to the effects of external forces, or is he just a legitimately bad person on his own? I always thought he was a decent guy who got corrupted by fear and/or divine malevolence, but it seems like you guys are taking the series in the opposite direction, and I'm not sure what to think.

    (I know it's unlikely to get a straight answer right now but it's always worth a shot.)

  2. Thank you for being awesome Troy. We all love what you guys are doing with season 3.

  3. I much prefer Adobe products, hope it can help for what you have left for the season.

    1. Oh hai, Noah Maxwell. Anyway, are you real life friends?

    2. Of course they aren't, Troy is an actually successful film maker who made a cult hit with original material, Noah is a giant weeaboo faggot that tried (and failed) to steal the spot light. Undoubtedly Troy is flattered but probably creeped out and definitely are not real life friends.

    3. Okay, Anonymous, you say what you want to about Adam. But, Adam made a completely different story than Troy did. I like all of the SlenderSeries because they all have different stories that add to what Slender Man wants.

  4. What sources do you use to get the old film footage for TTA videos like Session or Attention? Like, do you know of the movies beforehand, and decide they'd be creepy out of context? Or do you specifically look for old timey films of certain genres to get that right feel? etc.

  5. Man oh man, bought my fiance Season 2 on DVD for our anniversary; we spent all day watching our Season 1 DVDs and then finishing with Season 2- Only to hop on the computer and check out Season 3!

    Can't wait to see what's up y'all sleeve's next! Keep up the great work, and thanks so much for putting out the DVDs; I love them, I love the commentaries and special features, I love Marble Hornets, and above all, I love y'all!
