Bang! Schedule Report back out into the arena!

We've had to reconfigure the way we measure some of the data at the back-end, so you may notice a slight shift on some of those tasks. We’ll be getting a few of these out leading up to the DWCON screening – so (if you're coming) you'll walk into that room knowing exactly what you will be getting yourself in for. Truthfully, we wanted to be much further along than we currently are, but with about three usable weeks remaining, hopefully we still have some surprises up our collective sleeves.

The interesting thing to remember when looking at this, is that even though we have assets at 100%, it doesn't mean that further alterations aren't occurring on the sidelines. The bridge for example requires tweaking with each shot, and the Mica rig will probably continually be improved upon up until we finish. 100% in these instances means that the asset meets its awesome quota, enabling progression to the next level and subsequent boss battle.

And no – we aren't as far along as we would like to be for the WIP screening. We considered shifting the date for an instance of a second – but then Daniel had a nervous breakdown and started weeping uncontrollably while muttering about shot order and something about his pilgrimage.

He’s currently sitting outside, staring at the night sky and complaining about the pixel count.

So we proceed! And with vigor, enthusiasm, and fresh strength! Just be sure to embrace this (if you'r coming) as the work in progress it is. You’ll need to use your imagination on the missing bits, and we’ll be sure to be completely transparent with you all on how many missing bits there actually are.

In other news, today we just hit 100 people working on this film in post-production, and that number has been building each week! It’s a lot of work to get through – but we have a massive and talented team to slug through it all and ensure we have lots of awesome bits for the con and beyond!

Can’t wait to get it in front of you all and show you all a good time!
