I like how your only examples are all long-term projects which I have explicitly addressed. There are no "new projects being piled on." This is all part of the plan, and has been from the beginning.
Would you, personally, support me while I sit in complete silence for 2 or 3 years working on a film project? Do you think my other 600 patrons, of whom 50% (75% if you want to count progress reports) subscribe explicitly for the regular Short video releases, would support me while I sit in complete silence for 2 or 3 years working on a film project?
The simple fact of the matter is that if I am going to get any projects done, then I have to do smaller projects to fund the larger projects. This has always been the plan from the very beginning. That is the primary purpose of the Shorts: to fund the Longs.
The reason why Hiveship hasn't made any progress in 2019 is because I misprojected my schedule. And it is why 2020 has had its schedule adjusted. When Shorts take 6 weeks to complete, 4 weeks scheduled isn't enough for them. 8 weeks should be enough. I say should because we won't really know until April 30 comes around and Rabbit.Hole Episode 3 is done and dusted.
Hiveship is absolutely scheduled to be worked on. Fallen Throne I have addressed as being intentionally shelved because it's simply too big for me to address right now - I am only one person, and between Longs (films) and the aforementioned Shorts to fund them, I simply don't have the time. And Blue Star is a Long, same as Hiveship. You saw how long Blue Star Episode 3 is - at nearly 30 minutes, it safely counts as a Long, and that is the length I intend future episodes to be as well. And you saw how much people bitched about how it took me 2 years to make - and that was with putting out Shorts to keep people sated! Imagine how many people would bitch if I took that long and released nothing in the meantime.
I understand your concern, but it's frankly baseless. Surrosluts was not canceled for scheduling reasons. It was canceled for writing reasons. It was written as a throwaway project, and then it evolved into a much bigger and more interesting project - but with the audio already recorded, it had a painful contrast between a serious project with throwaway writing. It's an idea I want to do justice to now, and the writing did not do that. I could have rewritten it and gotten the 25 minutes of collective audio rerecorded for it, but that would have thrown my schedule off - and then, you my good friend, would bitch about how I need to take on new projects and actually release things, rather than spend months chasing an idea that was thrown off-kilter.
Thanks for writing in.
