Posted by Glen Moyes on Monday, 27 August, 2012

The final pass for Volume 2 has been completed over the past two months. It seems that the most recent threats have had an impact on productivity.

Hang in there little buddy!

Eminent sacrifice to the test audience gods

Posted by Adam Weber on Sunday, 1 July, 2012

<blows into microphone>

Is this thing on?

<tap tap>

Okay. We have the entire script written beginning to end and are working on a final pass before we sacrifice it to the test audience gods. I suspect that this will be accompanied by a great deal of wailing and gnashing of teeth on my part. They have explicit instructions to point out any flaw they find.

Just moments ago we finished our final pass of Volume 1! That means there are no plot holes, no notes, or any changes that we can think of before we place it upon the sacrificial alter smeared with our blood, sweat, and plot.

Writing Status: Stealth Progress

Posted by Glen Moyes on Tuesday, 16 August, 2011

After flying underneath the radar, we present to you our current progress of the script for Hackberry Hollow. We’ve done a ton of work since the last time we posted our writing progress. Even though it’s been a while since we’ve posted a writing report (um, November), since that time we’ve almost written the entire last half of the script for the entire comic.

Posted by Glen Moyes on Friday, 24 June, 2011

You heard me. *clackity clackity clack*

Alright. Now that I got that out of the way, here’s what we’ve been up to….

We actually did start up again on 4/12

Posted by Adam Weber on Friday, 15 April, 2011

As posted previously, we officially resumed work on Hackberry Hollow this last Tuesday. Currently we are re-reading the entire story that we have so far with fresh eyes and marking the entire thing up with notes for things we need to fix, improve or smack each other upside the head for including.

Starting up again on 4/12

Posted by Adam Weber on Saturday, 2 April, 2011

Greetings loyal blog readers. If you’re reading this post on the day it was created then it’s probably a safe bet that you’re a loyal reader. Glen and I unanimously agreed to wait until the 2nd of April to post this as opposed to yesterday for reasons that are probably self apparent.

Given that the crunch to complete the software for The Animation Academy’s online program is behind us, and I’m officially graduating from college next week, we now have our ducks in a row to resume working on Hackberry Hollow on Tuesday, April 12th. That’ll give me a very badly needed vacation for two days.

Hopefully that’s soon enough to soothe my writing withdrawals.

2 Months Left

Posted by Glen Moyes on Saturday, 8 January, 2011

We are counting down to the launch of The Animation Academy going online. Now it’s just two months away.

In other news, Adam got some new audio recording hardware. I used a different production technique during our last podcast that improved the overall audio quality, but also demonstrated the huge gap in quality between my recording hardware and Adam’s. As of today that was fixed.

Status Report: The Whole Buffalo

Posted by Glen Moyes on Saturday, 13 November, 2010

This graph appears to suggest that things have been going slow, but that’s far from the truth. The past few weeks have been full of Quadrant I stuff. In addition to that we’ve also been busy working on our other Hackberry Hollow project: alternate sources of revenue.

Midway through the script (and 3D-Coat)

Posted by Glen Moyes on Saturday, 6 November, 2010

We hit our halfway mark for the script writing process. It’s coming along!

We would also like to announce that when counting the number of completed chapters, one of us has to remove their shoes. Obviously we will need to change our methodology once we pass 40 chapters, and then once again when we pass 42 chapters, but for now this is working for us.

Status Report: Short Chapters!

Posted by Glen Moyes on Saturday, 23 October, 2010

Yeah, the chapters we’ve been writing recently have been much shorter. In fact some were so short that we ended up merging them.
