Upcoming On-Location Projects

Postby MoDaD » Wed Nov 15, 2017 3:35 pm

On Dec. 2nd Dec. 4th I will be in Los Angeles to meet with the Tremblay Bros. to carry out the task mentioned in their most recent Kickstarter update:

Also, around November, our friends at swatkats.info will be visiting our upcoming new production's office location in Hollywood. We recently unboxed a bunch of SWAT Kats production archives with all kinds of unique and exclusive materials. They’ll be helping Yvon and me digitize them so that we can share all of them for you to see!


I have a day set aside for this, but while I'm there Christian agreed to do some on-camera things, too. Maybe a podcast recording. Maybe some more fan questions. No promises as this whole thing equates to me spending the day doing online archival documentation, with the Tremblays stopping by only for about an hour or so amid all of that. They have a pretty tight schedule, so arranging this was a bit of a small miracle.

I'll try to pin down some more SK Revolution details, most importantly how their trip to MIPCOM went, who they talked with, how SWAT Kats was received, and whether the financial backers have been secured, etc. While I'm there I'll make sure to frequently tweet things. There's apparently a lot of original show backgrounds, storyboards, scripts, character models, designs etc. that Christian says have never been seen before. Not sure if that's the case or not, but I don't mind finding out. I'll be bringing my lighting equipment and assortment of lenses with me, and probably have an organized place online to view all of this stuff by early January-ish. It depends on how much there is. My goal is to get some creator commentary from Christian as I go through these, so hopefully that will work out.

The second thing I have setup is a meeting with Television's Lance Falk on Dec. 26. to get some more episode commentary, maybe a podcast, some "Megakat Minute" featurettes I have in mind, and also to get his input on some of the show materials from Dec. 2nd Dec. 4th.

I don't really have anything "live" planned for either of these, but if that changes I'll try to give people as much notice as possible.

Anyway, your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. as always are appreciated (and as always, my forgiveness in advance should I be unable to act upon any of them Madkatlaughing ).

It is impresive how much new material we are getting from the wait of Revolution. I mean, when I arrived here, the kickstarter campaing was about to end and there was almost nothing besides a few fan reviews, episode sketches and drawings and some other small things. Now the SK encyclopedia has grown so big that I don't know where to start. I like it RazorHappyCait (just thinking out loud)

Now that I THINK I have time, I'll try to catch up on everything so I'm not lost when this arrives. It's nice to see we are getting more information about the show (old and possibly new too!). Thanks again MoDaD for everything you do for the community, not many fans of anything do this much or are even able to. It's remarkable. CallieKissIcon2

I am writhing with jealousy that you get to go to the studio and touch animation stuff. ;)

Have a safe trip. What you do for this fandom is so amazing. Thank you so much! I look forward to seeing what you discover.

That's pretty much just going to be me clicking through pages on swatkats.info and asking Lance "talk about this" and keeping it a few minutes or so, and then using them for video embeds for entries once I start to get that 2018 redesign fully in motion.

Should probably take a rain check on that jealousy until I actually see what there is. I'm expecting a high probability of duplicate content... but at least I'll be able to capture it at higher quality/resolution at least.

Any chance there are music tracks or pages with the score among the new discoveries?
