Episode 5 fixed

I've gotten some complaints about the audio in Episode 5, so I posted a fix. Here it is.

FINALLY! Episode 5 - Waking the Dead

The thrilling conclusion to Episode 4. Sorry it took so long to get this episode out... busy summer, uncooperative editing tools, and general mayhem has prevailed for a while now. The next episode may take a while to get out. I have a very busy couple months ahead of me, then there's the whole holiday mess. I'm hoping to have it out before the new year.

Thanks for waiting!

One. Single. Scene.

Not even a full scene. One small set of shots. Editing combat blows, especially when the !@#^!#&!^%!$#*%!#$!^ FINAL CUT WON'T DO WHAT IT'S TOLD!!!!!!! I have a concussion from beating my head on my desk, my monitor, the walls, etc.

Ahem. This episode is finished tonight, or I eat my Mac. Seriously. I'll do it. I've got the fork ready.

Ok, for those of you following the play-by-play: I found a serviceable audio program (FREE Hi-Q Recorder) that has allowed me to get the combat audio I needed. Tomorrow will be spent doing final tweaks/sound effects and finally cutting this bad boy together into actual movie form.

Thanks for your patience. This summer's been insane, I've been slammed at every turn, running around every weekend, playing catch-up during the week, and generally out of my head for the past couple of months. With luck, I'll be back to my crappy roughly-2-month update schedule (or, hopefully, somewhat better than that) after I release this one.


OK, all video has been captured. There's still some quirkiness with the audio, but it seems that demolition in my neighborhood has stopped, so it'll be fixed hopefully by tomorrow night. Give me a day or two for assembly, and cross every appendage, and I should have it up by the weekend. That is, if I can find a way to capture audio from a demo playback that DOESN'T sound like its been filtered through pure unadulterated white noise.

Anyone know any good audio capture programs? MCIRecorder is sucking my will to live.

Urge to kill rising...

OK, here's the status:

I am one filming scene (to be finished today) and some audio editing away from getting this thing put together and out to you guys.

Challenge: Someone, I kid you not, is RIPPING UP PAVEMENT two houses away. Even with my noise-cancelling headset I can't hear for crap. As soon as I think they're done, BWAAAM!!!!!

Gaaaah. I'm hoping I'll be able to concentrate enough to even get the filming finished.

A blast from the past!

Not a Queens of King's, but an animation nonetheless. This was my very first City of Heroes film, a project with my husband and our friend Jesse for a Cryptic Studios fan video contest. It's very rough compared to my current work, but amusing nonetheless.

Episode 3.25 - Coming Soon

The creator of Queens of King's has a few words for those who look forward to the next episode.

The full story: Hi, I'm Liz. I make the show, and I'm a slack-ass bitch. It's been a busy couple of months for me, so work on the show has been slow going. Audio is nearly completed recording-wise for the next two episodes, plus a couple short vids that I'm hoping you guys will enjoy.

Queens of King's Episode 3: Field Work

First, I'd like to thank everyone for their patience...the mid-winter blues made this kinda slow-going. But it is done. Yay!

In this episode, Anne works while Ellen and Pete go off and play.

Episode 3 coming in February

Hey all,

Just wanted to reassure people that episode 3 is in progress... it's just running a bit slow due to the holidays and a bit of illness on my end. On the plus side, I got my annual ER visit out of the way early. :) All is well now, all audio has been recorded, and I'm rarin' to go on the programming/filming end.

Thanks for your patience!

Much love,
Liz Reay
