Neverending Nights (NWN Machinima)

I am so very excited about Beamdog giving NWN a little love! I recently (beginning of last year) began refilming the entire Neverending Nights (NWN Machinima) I had done into true 1080p format. (The original series was recorded in 800x600 and later 1040x768) - but was still extremely pixelated. The series means so much to me - because I fell in love with writing the characters, voicing it - and even the editing of it - and seeing it all come together.

So at the start of this year, 4 years after we finished it (and to think we started this back in November of 2004, so it took us 9 years to do 65 episodes, originally!) - I've been releasing the new 1080p versions of the episodes pretty much on a monthly basis (with a few exceptions here and there - since work and vacations have tended to get in the way from time to time!) So far I have re-filmed and released the first 31 episodes of the original 65. It's night and day difference too - not just the quality of the video, but even the editing - because of what I've learned since we first started this.

    Thank you, scriver! Feel free to share your thoughts (either here or on the Youtube channels, or even PMs to me!) I love feedback - good, bad - whatever it is! I love hearing what people think of the series! We've had so much love from the NWN guys (see the "About" page in the original post) - everything from being interviewed on Bioware's site, to Atari hiring us to do machinima pieces to promote NWN2 before it came out! I would have never thought our series would get the attention it got back then - and so, I love going back now and giving it a high def treatment and refilming it all! And then to hear Beamdog is touching up NWN now as well - it just seems like perfect timing that NWN gets so much love again!

    Took a moment to write about the impact J.R.R. Tolkien had on me, today being his birthday.

    For those interested in the series - I finally got around to doing a HD 1080p of Episode 32 tonight!
    Neverending Nights - Episode 32 - HD - Employment Opportunities. While resting at the Blackmire Inn and Tavern, Peter the Ranger comes up with an idea, that, surprisingly, Grayson the Fighter actually believes might be a good idea. Every hero needs a villain - and the dynamic duo (unaware they're being pursued by Andrea the Assassin and her cohorts) - decides to hold an audition as to who will be their villain and spread the deeds of their (slightly imagined) deeds across the land - so that they can become rich and famous! After all, what could go wrong with that idea?

    Episode 33: There Be Pirates! (HD)
    Peter and Grayson meet Christine the Chambermaid, and Peter begins weaves a very exaggerated tale about one of their most recent adventures... with some... unexpected results.

    EPISODE 38: MANDATORY FLASHBACKS: Daniel the Destructive shares something about his past; which allows Andrea the Assassin to open up about hers. Meanwhile, Peter and Grayson argue the dangers of going inside of the cave in front of them when they’re visited by… Well, that would be telling.
