Goals

So I've been mulling over a lot of different ideas for Geoweasel cartoons and some are starting to actually...turn into stuff worth making. Most upcoming episodes will be more spontaneous in the writing section, basically meaning it's not an idea I've had for a long-ass time that's gotten stale. I just need to put up some stuff. I don't like to promise or predict things because they never come true, but I'm hoping we'll see a new cartoon within this next week.
Additionally, I've really been wanting to revamp the site to something more HTML-based rather than all Flash menus and stuff. This is mainly to make updating easier. I'm not really an HTML wizard, though. I know a good amount of stuff, but probably not enough to make the site look spiffy without Flash. So who knows what'll happen there.
And finally, I'd like to have the first DVD completed by the end of this month. Or before I go on vacation (which is somewhere around August 9). Even if it's just a prototype, I really want to get that going, so then by the time I come back, it'll be on sale (if not before then). That's more than enough time to put it together, really. The stuff that takes the most time is really troubleshooting with converting the Flash files. As far as DVD material goes, it will obviously have special features such as never-before-seen episodes, deleted scenes, unfinished episodes (such as The Janitizer and some others most people haven't seen), and commentaries (probably audio commentaries, unless that proves to be too difficult or boring to pull off with just one person. If that's the case, there will be separate commentaries with me). I would also like to put on some other kinds of features, such as behind the scenes stuff and whatnot, but I don't really know what to put. So if anyone has any ideas or requests of extras they'd like to see on the DVD, I'm open for suggestions.

Can't wait to see more GEOweasel! I don't know if I'll be able to buy the DVD, but I certainly hope I can. Good luck on all your endeavors!

Niko, I have enjoyed your work so far as a long-time fan of GEOWeasel. You rock, man! I really hope I can get the DVD. And personally, I wouldn't mind seeing more scenes of Jimbob. He's my absolute favorite non-sequiter character on the web-net. Anyway, I've been wanting to say that for a year or so, and I'm glad I got it out. Rock on, man.
