This episode is an improvement over the first 2. People have names and they're used...>_>. I still have a lot of improvements to make, but I'm making progress. For something I do in between a 40 hr/week job and book editng, I'm pretty pleased with my progression. This episode is more focused on character development and setting up the drama and tension that the last 3 episodes of this "arc" will focus on. The first 2 episodes I felt were really just me practicing to figure out what works best for me when it comes to rebooting an animated web series. I feel like I've figured it out now.
I know a lot of people want more action and an emphasis on that, but I don't think I was ready to really do that before. The upcoming episodes that this one set up are heavily focused on more drama and action. For me, converting a book I published to animated form has been both a blessing and a frustration. A blessing in that I know exactly where things are going and where the foreshadowing is. A frustration in that the beginnng chapters that set up the entire book and the inciting incident that establishes the protagonist can be a bit slow when episodes take about 3 1/2 months to release. For those who have been patient with me and have been enjoying the ride so far, it really does mean a lot to me. I am really excited about the next 3 episodes. They're going to be a big challenge and that's why I'm handling them differently.
I have a bunch of mecha concepts for the Frames that will appear, and I'm designing all the interior and exterior locations in advance. Backgrounds are my weak point and I'm trying to get a better grasp on them.
Ultimately, I am very happy with episode 3. Also, I had to recast a major character. I am happy to announce the addition of Piper Petrie http://piper.newgrounds.com/ to the cast. I've had the pleasure of already starting to animate the upcoming minisode animation that her character debuts in. She is a fantastic voice actress and a professional with an enthusastic attitude.
I hope you enjoy episode 3 and I hope to continue improving to make a better, more well rounded web series in the future.
