Word.

Some good stuff going on with Civil Protection. After I started making the first episode, I found out about a contest for machinima making going on, so I worked to finish it in time before the deadline. It was hosted by Machinimasia, an institution devoted to this type of media. They're located in Singapore and since the focus of this was to spread machinima awareness in Asia, it was pretty cool of them to accept entries from other continents as well. The results got posted a little while ago and it turns out that I not only won for best student category, but also BEST OF SHOW. I guess this means I'll start getting death threats from other machinima makers now, but they don't know where I live. They could do an IP trace, but that should only get them the general region of the ISP. Anyway, this trophy looks neat:





The bad news is that I've fallen behind on episode 2 for several reasons. One of the biggest was my getting sick over Thanksgiving break but also with my exams/graduation coming up. I'm still working on it though and will get it out as soon as I can, I just have less time to devote to it right now.

As long as you don't rush number 2 I will be happy.

Whoa, I didn't know about this. Congrats =D I respect you even more now, and am even more anxious for Episode 2 / 3.

How do you guys feel about your Machinama? I mean your writing seems to be quite awesome, well not to compare or anything but on par with the Rooster Teeth writers from the first seasons.

Well, I haven't tapped nearly all the stuff I'd like to do with it, but I feel like CP definitely has a different style than RvB, even if it does have the troops-in-futuristic-suits-being-bored theme to it. The differences will become more apparent as I make more episodes (especially the 4th).
