Powers Cosmic: What’s the hold up?
So, what’s the state of play with Powers Cosmic? It’s been pretty quiet, at least as far as the view from the outside is concerned, but the fact is that for months I’d been working on cleaning up the existing episodes and preparing them for broadcast on a local television station. That all came to a horrible end a few weeks back when a back-up failure cost me just about all of the Powers Cosmic source files. You probably heard the banshee-like scream that echoed into the night when I discovered that the files were missing from BOTH of my backup drives, and that the original had been deleted and overwritten beyond recovery.
So, what do I do? Give up on Powers, maybe move on to another project? Nah, I dig Powers Cosmic way too much for that. Do I remake all of the previous episodes – improving them and preparing them for broadcast at the same time? If I hadn’t already spent months working on doing just that, then maybe that would be an appealing option sure, but no, I just can’t bring myself to start all over again.
So, what’s the plan? Will we ever see new episodes of Powers Cosmic?
Yes. The plan is to make the remaining episodes of this first season. That’s going to take some work, because I need to remake ALL of the sets from the series because [spoiler]the final episode of the season will feature EVERY set used in the show so far[/spoiler].
Once that’s complete (before actually… like, NOW) I’ll be looking into way to improve the production of series two. Better visually, faster production, more polished scripts, etc. I already have a complete arc developed for the next season, and even a few scenes written. There’s a new character, who I’m excited to introduce, some fun (read: silly) plot elements, and a lot (read: A LOT) of nerdy talk to come from Elroy and Furious.
I’m devastated by the loss of my original source files, but keen to move forward with new episodes and a whole new season soon.
Thanks for being patient. Thanks for all the great emails I get regarding Powers Cosmic, they really do inspire me to keep working on, and improving, the show.
