Edit: In case you missed it on facebook, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette released an article about MH yesterday. Here's the link: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11236/1169306-67-0.stm 
--------------------------

Sorry about the radio silence this week. It was my last first week of classes ever, so I was a little preoccupied. Scheduling was awful with Joseph and I. It's like whenever I would be home and available to shoot, he'd be at work, and vice versa. I think we're good to shoot early next week. Whatever happens, a new entry will be posted before we pack up and head to Atlanta for Dragon Con next weekend.

I ended up combining two of the three things we shot previously into the one entry last week, so our posting schedule is a bit thrown off now that we don't have anything ready to go this week. Originally, the confrontation in the parking lot and the phone call to Jessica were going to be separate, but then I realized that was kind of pointless and would probably end up pissing people off, having two "only talking" entries in a row.

It's a very delicate balancing act that we're having to work here. You can't do no-context suspense entries only, because then they'd become expected and (even worse) boring, but you also can't do strictly exposition too much because people ultimately want to get to the suspense, which I think is our bread and butter, not to sound to full of myself.

Joseph and I talked a little last night about the direction we want to take Season 3 in. We have the ending of Season 2, and we've had the ending of Season 3 ready for a long time, but everything in between those endings is vague at best. I think we've at least gotten started on solving some of the problems we've encountered with the initial writing process, but we're still a ways off from having it finished. Wish I could talk about it more, but of course that would probably spoil what's to come with the remainder of Season 2.

Guess you'll just have to wait and see, dude.

  11. Yo Troy, were you by chance in Jacksonville, FL Friday, September 9th in the afternoon at any point?

    My friend swears he was pumping gas at the same time you were.

  12. Something that concerns me. There was this one interview way back between seasons, where you guys said that your characters were basically modeled on each other. In light of recent entries, I just want to follow up on that statement. Because if Alex is still based on you...that's more than a little worrying...
