James here.

As i posted in a previous post i was going to get some pictures from the VISFF, after trying to get those picture on my computer for a couple hours yesterday i have come to the conclusion that the memory card in my camera i hooped. Which sucks but luckily the only pictures i had on their were the ones from the VISFF and in all honesty I didn’t take to many pictures and the ones i did take wern’t all that great. So don’t feel like you are missing out on the holy grail of pictures 😛

I do have something i am going to get going on the blog in the next couple days. I am going to get pictures of all the crews work stations and put them up here with a little write up on each of them. So i think that will be a neat little look into where we all spend a great deal of our time!

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! As you guys have hopefully seen the site has had a minor update to push us to version 5.1. No HUGE changes, a lot of backend stuff that i wouldn’t bore you with even if I had any idea what Paul actually did :P. Onto this weeks video, High Noon. Now it has been said already but we do apologize for the late update with this video but due to certain circumstances (Grahams computer kicking itself in the nuts, a serious lack of RAM in the computer that did wind up editing this video, and the fact that we were out of town all of Saturday) the Friday update was just not in the books. The actual shoot of this video really couldn’t have gone much better. We met up at Graham and Matt’s new place early last week and started shooting around 7:00pm and wraped up around 10:00.  When Paul first brought this script in for us to read a couple weeks ago, the idea of going all green screen was probably at the back of everyones minds, however we are all very pleased with the way it turned out and we hope you are as well. Here are a couple of pictures from the shoot. And i realize I still owe you guys pictures from the trip to Nanaimo from this past weekend but I won’t have the free time till after the meeting tonight. So expect them up between 5:00pm and 11:00pm tonight.

While the outward changes are relatively minor, I have made some backend changes that should allow us to deal with traffic spikes a little better.

The biggest change you will notice is that we have officially discontinued the Whatever Thing. Don’t worry, the old WT videos are still available under our new Bonus category in the Archives, but it has become obvious that the WT is not going to continue as a regular update. It is entirely possible that there will be more WT-style bonus videos in the future, but the Bonus designation means that you shouldn’t count on them.

The other major change is that we have removed the comics section. This was a tough decision, since comics have been a part of the site since the very beginning, but most of them are not updated anymore and we felt that they were taking away from our core awesomeness (eg. videos). Speaking of awesomeness, Kathleen’s comic, Korea, is still going strong. You can now access it from the LRR Presents section on the sidebar.

As a housekeeping point, please note that now that the blog is in a more prominent position, most news type stuff will be posted here instead of in the site news forum.

As always, let me know if there are any glitches or weirdness.

The wishing of luck worked!

Pictures for this weeks video will be going up as soon as Graham is able to get the video done and uploaded.

Hey guys and gals. Just thought i would drop you guys a line to let you know that the whole crew *minus Kathleen :(* plus a couple extras are heading up to Nanaimo today to attend the 3rd annual VISFF (Vancouver Island Short Film Festival) This year we have 4 videos in the lineup. The Secret Life of Toast, Eyewitness Accounts, A Part of our Heritage and Slacking for Gold. As you can guess we are pretty excited about this fact. So wish us luck and i am of course taking my camera so i will get pictures of the trip/event up tomorrow with the rest of the pictures from this weeks video. (which should be up soon)
