Video: Arby 'n' the Chief S07E04: "Terminal" Director's Commentary

Hey guys,

Here's the link to my director's commentary on "Terminal":

Arby 'n' the Chief S07E04: "Terminal" Director's Commentary

Sorry again.  Check out the blog post below this for the script/music track download mentioned at the end of the commentary.  I appreciate your patience.

Thanks,
Jon

UPDATE: I've been reading that a few people have been having trouble downloading the script/music ZIP file from the download link that I posted.  Can anybody recommend a non-suck quick file hosting site?  Or has anybody already re-uploaded it to a better one?  I can post that link on here.  Thanks.

News: "Armor Deep"/Story Episode Delay/Director's Commentary/Goodies

Hey all,

First thing -- here's the link to the latest Byte, "Armor Deep":

Arby 'n' the Chief - Bytes S01E12: "Armor Deep"

Not as deep as the title might suggest, but I thought it turned out alright.  I liked the idea of doing an 80's-style training montage in the vein of Rocky.

Anyway, I'm sorry to ask for more patience on your part as I will be pushing the release of the next story episode for another week.  I need extra time to work on the script for it, it's still a bit of a mess at this point.

So instead of a story episode, for airing tomorrow I've submitted a director's commentary on the fourth episode of the seventh season, "Terminal".  I'll be talking about a lot of things about the show on a broad level though, not just things about that episode -- I chose it because it had the longest run-time.

To say thanks for your patience, I've also created a little zip file with some goodies: a screenplay from one of the bytes, a screenplay from a story episode, and music tracks that I've been working on to use throughout the season.  Keep in mind that I'm by no means a music producer; I realize that it's a whole other realm of artistry that I know little about.  However, I do enjoy dabbling in it, and I like to create simplistic tunes to help sell certain feelings that I'm trying to convey through the scenes that I write, if I can't find a professionally-produced track that I can purchase a license for.  And I know people have been asking for this season's soundtrack as I did the same thing for season six previously, so here it is:

VIRUS.EXE

Alternatively, you can use this less-intimidating download link:

Arby 'n' the Chief Season 07 Goodies

Some of the tracks I think are alright, overly-simplistic as they are.  But that shows you what I know about the field.  I have little doubt that they'll make real music producers facepalm.

Thanks,
Jon

Video: Arby 'n' the Chief S07E05: "Heat"

Hello,

The new story episode of Arby 'n' the Chief, "Heat", is here:

Arby 'n' the Chief S07E05: "Heat"

I don't mind so much if people don't comment on the Bytes, but I am very curious as to what people think about the story episodes as they take much more time and energy to write and produce.  So if you have the time to spare, please leave a comment.  Tell me what you liked or didn't like.  It'd be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon
