Silly me! I forgot to write a blog post yesterday! Kevin, Kyle, and I were working on more Treus stuff as well as filming Marlin 21, plus recorded a new podcast (for future release); so it's a good reason. Anyway, here's two pictures from Marlin 21.

Today, I actually got some work done on Treus. Yea! I edited a few minutes together with music (voices still have to be recorded when the ep. is done). It looks pretty good, and will look even better when the big chunks that we've filmed get linked up with little scenes that we have yet to film/capture. Tomorrow we might actually record a podcast! To conclude, here's pic number 4 (I think that's right) of Marlin ep. 21; coming Sep. 4th!

Fan: "Damn you Thomas Productions! It's just another picture of Lemon Man on a Mongoose!"
Thomas Productions: "Don't worry. This is the last one of those."

Well, today I can shamefully say that I did absolutely no work on Marlin or Treus. What with school starting and it being about 100 degrees today, plus watching the Dem. convention, there hasn't been much time for anything else. So, behold the third picture from Marlin the Elite ep. 21:

Not too much to update you with today. No new podcast... now new editing/filming on Marlin 22 or the "Treus" project. Really the only thing that happened today was some more script writing and plot developing for Treus. There were some main things that I wanted to have included in the series (mainly cool battle sequences) that I was able to tie in and get sorted out. But sorry! Can't show you any of that. However, as I leave you for today, I will show you the second image from Marlin the Elite ep. 21: coming September 4th.

Kind of a normal update today. I finished editing Marlin 21, we did the voiceovers, and it's all exported and ready to go. The only thing we need now is September 4th (the 1 Year Anniversary of Marlin the Elite). Need I remind everybody that on September 4th, we are also releasing our new logo, revamped website, and a little bit more. Now I'm going to do what I didn't get to do for Halo 3 Dance TV 2... and that's to release a new picture from Marlin 21 every post until Sep. 4th. These will only be available here until Sep. 4 hits. They as we get closer to the release date, the pictures will get more revealing. So keep your eyes fixed to this blog! Without further ado, here's picture #1!

Another Flash Update: More Marlin editing, plus this little gem. Just made it quickly for fun. Till next time...

This is what I call a Flash Update! Editing began today on Marlin Ep. 21. The intro has been shortened, but still contains the same song and most of the old footage. Nothing to mention besides that!

Not a lot of news today. We did film Marlin ep. 21 (rejoice!). Plus I modified the site a little bit. It's just barely starting to take the shape of what it will soon become. On a less exciting note (at least for you readers), I got a new external hard drive, which means I'll be able to store a lot more movie stuff. Yea!

Not a lot to say. We've been working a little bit more on Treus and that's about it. We should start filming Marlin season 3 pretty soon. Don't forget to watch Halo 3 Dance TV 2 if you haven't already.

Another quick update. We worked a lot on Treus yesterday and today. Filming is almost complete for one episode. One of the things we filmed was a very complicated scene, and we were able to get it done... barely. Oh! And the Clone Wars movie was awesome. Go see it. Along with this.

Just a quick update. As you can tell, the YouTube feed is working thanks to the miracle of patience. Yea! Still not sure if we're gonna do a podcast or not. We plan on working on Treus more today before we go see Star Wars The Clone Wars tomorrow :) . And so, I end the post by saying, "I Believe in Dave Filoni".

I made this. Yes; I am awesome aren't I.

Hello there. I'm hear with a much needed update. Halo 3 Dance TV 2 is now out on YouTube and awaiting release on Please watch and love. Again, like I said in my last post and in the director's notes, this one's a little different from the first because of the time I took on each song. I just had too many ideas in my head. I'll try and have more short snipits in number 3. In other news, we've been working a little more on Treus: mainly just working out plot details. So there's nothing really I can say... except that I almost now know for sure that it will not be released this summer. I'm guessing late fall or even winter, but no matter what, you will have seen the first episode before the year is out. Again, we'll have a trailer and teaser pics when the time is getting close. Now, here are some small things you should know: Our main YouTube channel widget isn't working for some reason. Hopefully it's only temporary. The other was that now you can Digg/bookmark each post I make on this blog. See the little button on the bottom of the post? That's it! Please click and enjoy. Lastly, our now "monthly" podcast (the TPCast) is overdue for an episode. Maybe we'll get one out this week, but no promises.

P.S. As a side note, I recently starred in a couple videos from Bone Rice Productions. You can find them here, here, here, and especially here. And subscribe to them if you please (especially if you're into Stargate).

Quick update. The bonus footage for Detective Awesome and the Case of Vial Three is up now, so go check it out. The only other thing worth mentioning is Halo 3 Dance TV 2. It's coming out a lot sooner than I anticipated... tomorrow. The reason being is that I had too many ideas to fit into 10 minutes, so I decided to save some of those ideas for Halo 3 Dance TV 3 (yes, it's inevitable now) and release Dance TV 2 with the stuff I had. The movie comes to a runtime of 9:59 minutes, so it's in no way lacking. This time around, I had more "visionary" ideas, which lead me to spend more time on each song (in the movie). That's just how it came together. Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it. To conclude, here's all the pictures I was going to show you with each update:

Update time! Kevin and Kyle are on vacation right now, but while they've been gone, I've been working hard on Halo 3 Dance TV 2. I've filmed a good 3/4 of it so far and have edited a little less than half. So expect it in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, I'm going to post the outtakes from Detective Awesome and the Case of Vial Three soon. Please watch it the actual movie, too. Now for some more news. I've been saying in my last couple posts that there might be a site revamp on the horizon. Well, that's pretty much surly going to happen (approximately 99.97%). The revamp a will take place on September 4th, with the release of the Marlin the Elite Season 3 premiere. Some of you people might also know that that's also the day that we're switching over to our brand new logo. And who knows! There may even be more ;)

So here's the first photo from Halo 3 Dance TV 2, because I'm feeling so nice.

I know it isn't much, but it's something. Stay tuned for more pictures!
