This is it. I'm proud to present Night of the Zombie King - Episode 1: From the Shadows.
Over the last few months I’ve probably watched this episode five hundred times. That’s not an exaggeration - we edit these guys ourselves, we do the color correction ourselves, we QC the dialogue mix and score, and we do the final sound mix ourselves. And, since I directed Episode 1, I’m ultimately responsible for it, so I watched it even more, just to be sure I hadn’t messed too much up. Even if I haven’t watched it front to back every time, all the viewings in pieces have certainly added up to that.
What struck me tonight, after we’d uploaded what we thought was the final render to Blip.tv and were all QCing it to make certain it was ready for you all to watch, was how short it is. It shouldn’t have been a surprise - we designed the show that way, and from the first table read early this year we knew each episode was between 5 and 6 minutes, more or less. Even so, this episode of which I’m so proud, the first of six I’m very excited to show you, seemed so short to me in those three or four viewings.
So much work goes into this thing we do, so many hours from so many dedicated, talented, professional people. These people, my friends, have poured themselves into this thing. And, in my humble opinion, it shows. Their talent, their dedication - our dedication - I think it makes these short five and a half minutes stand out. I think you’ll agree. I can’t thank any of them enough, so I’ll thank all of them way too little: thanks, folks. You are cool.
So, enjoy our first episode. We’ll have a new one next week, and a new one after that. Each of them will be the result of hundreds of hours of work by a couple dozen people. I’m very proud of each and every one of them. And I think you’ll like ‘em.
Okay. Off to bed. I’ve more cool stuff to make in the morning. Thanks for watching Night of the Zombie King, and for supporting GOLD and indieTV. You, too, are cool.
