I won’t sugarcoat this, Knightrise burned me out pretty bad. Part 13 released in mid-March (whoo!), but I made the mistake of immediately starting a new short film. Spent nine days doing nothing but set building and filming, followed by several weeks of editing. At which point I realized: I’m not enjoying this. I need a break.
And so a break I took. Healthy for me, perhaps, but not for the channel. Trust me, I really really want to put out content for you guys. Stop motion is unfortunately time-consuming and so breaks really space content apart. I kept telling myself I’ll upload more videos by the end of the year, but at this point I think I’ll start up again in January.
Here’s what you have to look forward to in 2018:
- New channel trailer. With Knightrise complete, I think it’s time to update this. Who knows, maybe there will be hints to new content.
- New short video. Like I said, I’ve worked on this one a while. Pretty proud of most of it, but it still needs a lot of work. Will drop it when it’s ready.
- A whole lot of Filler Street. A lot of episodes are nearly ready to roll out, actually. There’s one problem: I originally wrote several female characters, but as I am the only one voice acting for this, that was a mistake. A few episodes (including 3, the next one) need to be reshot with male characters. Not a ton of work because these are so short; just something that needs to get done. My goal is to reestablish the two-videos-per-month plan I set for this year (oops) and Filler Street is the easiest way to do that. In the near future I will post a blog about Filler Street and why I am undertaking it.
I apologize again for my absence. Fear not, for Starstreak Media will return. I’ll post Knightrise Part 13 below for your viewing pleasure in case you haven’t seen it. Make sure you watch the rest of the film first, because otherwise this won’t make much sense.
Thanks for sticking with us, we really appreciate it. Until next time,
