When technology goes on strike

We are huge advocates of consistency. We have released an episode every Thursday since Thanksgiving. So today has not been fun for us! Today technology rebelled and we kept getting error messages on the converted video. We have some fantastic loyal fans who wait for the show to go live at midnight and by 1am we had gotten several messages asking when the show was going up. We thought it would be a quick fix. It's happened a couple of times before, but was always pretty quickly resolved. But as the night wore on, I would hear Clint say..."ok, 14%....18%...24%....damn!" And back to the drawing board he would go. I had meetings most of the day, but got a steady stream of messages that were pretty much variations on that theme. After going through the episode for what seemed like the thousandth time, he isolated the single corrupted frame in the file, fixed it and got the render completed and the file uploaded. In the meantime, our cast has had a discussion on facebook as to which of our villains is responsible for the corruption so it has been in good fun. So here it is squeaking just under the wire but still technically releasing on Thursday...Episode 12! We are thrilled that our 23 week streak of episodes airing continues!!! And it wouldn't be indie filmmaking if it went smoothly!
