Wow! Clips from the finished video, talking heads and everything! It's almost like a proper documentary.... :P

hmm

i like the more documentary style, rather than just filming people filming with a bit of comment from people when they're not needed and a commentary from Tim. Very interesting vid.

Wow. Very professional Loading Time, really interesting and the new format works. Especially with the On The Run vids for the more filming people filming bits.

As was said, this is very obviously more professional-looking than previous Loading Times, but I'm not sure that I like it as much this way. The old format had more video from behind-the-scenes, which I tend to like more, and a lot of this video was Graham and Paul talking which, while entertaining, isn't much different from what we already get in the podcast.

I still enjoyed it, but I found previous Loading Times to be better.

I also noticed how well edited this is and wanted to say so. It looked sweet.

I liked hearing more about how the video came to be conceived and developed, interesting and still entertaining. Definitely had a more professional edge to it, but I kind of missed some of the silliness.

Definitely awesome though.

It was very well edited, very nice looking, and very professional.

Not a fan. Felt a bit sterile.

I felt like more information was provided about the makings of a video in this. Kinda like the video discussion in LRRcasts.

Wait, that's exactly what this was like. I have no problem with it.

Argh, serious business, do not want. It felt like one of those lame behind-the-scenes 'bonuses' on a DVD.

I watch LRR's behind-the-scenes videos to see the crew derping around and being themselves, since they don't make Sheer Stupidity anymore. I listen to the podcast to get all the details on how they make the videos and whatnot. And frankly, that works better, because there was nothing in this video. It was just a section of podcast over clips from the video that I'd already seen three times.

Actually, though, if that means there's more time for AskLRR, then I don't mind.

I really liked the new style for this. Very much like Doctor Who Confidential, the behind-the-scenes for Doctor Who. It at least looked professional, which is something.

I'd love to see more like this, but as the others said, maybe a few more shots of the goofiness that goes on.

Quantum Loading Time now? No? Well, still. Love the new Documentary format, as someone who enjoys 'lame behind-the-scenes' DVD extras I can safely say I want more of them. :)

I liked this video, but like others, I preferred the more informal Loading Time. Therefore, when do we get the making-of video... for the making-of video?

Glad so many of you like the video! I'm thrilled with the new style, and Tim did a great job with it.

BUT!
I also like random "watch the crew screwing around" videos, which is what On the Run now is. Things like this.

Loading Time videos on this level simply can't be that frequent, due to the extra work, but you'll be seeing more On the Run stuff from time to time. So really, it'll all balance nicely, I think.

This is my problem with the new format; there wasn't really anything in the interview segments which hadn't already been discussed in the relevant LRRcast.

But the LRRcast has always been the go-to place to hear the crew discuss the making of recent videos; are people who don't bother to listen to it really that interested?
