Opening Night

Some time ago now, we finally released the first episode of The Games Maestro, and as is appropriate on such occasions, we had a nice little screening party for it. We invited people, we had a comedian as our excellent MC, we had filk songs from Craig and Matt, and we all finally got to see the episode (including those of us who were in it, and I don’t mind telling you we were more than a little nervous. I was, anyway. I’m sure certain members of the cast were cool as cucumbers).

Fortunately, everybody seemed to enjoy it.

What made me happy about it is that… film is a really distant medium, as far as the audience is concerned. You make your art, and you put it out there, and for the most part you don’t get to see whether people are enjoying it except by the number of likes on your YouTube video. But we had a big room full of people excited to see what we’d made, and despite my anxiety, they all seemed to enjoy it. They laughed at the right places, which is the perfect measurement of anything vaguely funny as far as I’m concerned. And they laughed at places we didn’t expect, which always seems to happen. It was an incredibly fun experience, and when we get the rest of the episodes out (they’re coming, we promise. Soon™!) we’ll just have to imagine that people are responding as well as they did that very first time.

On the other hand, the fact that I can watch it over and over again, show whoever I like whenever I like, and get the same experience every time… yeah, screen stuff certainly has advantages.

    Just watched the first webisode again and my appetite is whetted for the next one. Any idea when it will be uploaded?

    Oh, isn’t “soon” the most awful word. But unfortunately it’s the only one we’ve got. I can reassure you that it is making large steps to completion, and this “soon” is starting to feel tangible. *finds a corner to cry*
