Hiya,


Do you think you could help me?


I have just signed up to this new site. If you go to the link at the bottom of this post, and make an account when you get there (don't worry, it's free - just put a real email address, make the rest up). 


Why? Well because this company will then 'thank us' for brining you to their site, by giving us extra exposure on the internet for this movie. If enough people go over there and do it, we will have exposure for every single movie and can make this BIG! 


So, get everyone you know to do it, its free, and won't cost you a bean. If you have more than one email account, do it as many times as you have email addresses for. If you don't have more than one, make another one on google mail or hotmail, you never have to use it again, just have to make it, and link it to this site.


I have done it with all my email accounts, I expect Picture Meerkat to do it to, and to make another email account on google mail or somewhere, just for this purpose, because it shows your commitment to this project.


Help us get this exposure we need!

Hiya,


Sorry guys, this is getting a little embarrassing now. I apologize on behalf of Picture Meerkat for not having any concept news over the last few days. After he pushed the deadline back due to illness, now he is better (since about Sunday last week!) he told me he would be sending through the concepts Thursday morning, and here we are Saturday night.


I don't think I will have them all fully animated by this time tomorrow night, which had been my previous plan. Sorry guys, its not my fault. If they aren't delivered, there is no way I can do them!


On the brighter side of things, I have started work on the Easter animated banner for the website. As Easter is early this year, I thought I would start now :)

Hiya,


Yes, you read that properly, Picture Meerkat STILL hasn't delivered any concepts to me. He said that he sent it this morning, and that I should check all my mail boxes, well, I did, he either A) Didn't send it B) Cancelled it C) Got stuck in his out box or D) Some other deranged thing that only he could manage!


Which means, I may not get a chance to have all the concepts finished by Sunday (as I had hoped for in my last post) because this is what you call 'cutting it fine'.


We will see :)

Hiya,


Just so you know, Picture Meerkat was busy drawing MORE concepts this morning, and this means, that in fact he didn't get a chance to send the ones he has already done that need animating to me!


So, he said he is hoping to send the concepts which are now done through to me tonight, though this week and the next two, I am really busy, and so may not get a chance to animate them. Tonight, I'm out, so probably won't get a chance tonight, next Friday, I'm at the JLS concert, so who knows when these will get done?


Here's the plan. If Picture Meerkat manages to deliver them all by tomorrow night, they will get done before Sunday night. That's my plan.


Hopefully another trailer out in a few weeks :) You look forward to it? We know :)

Hiya,


So, yes, as you probably know, we now have a new youtube channel, which can be found at: www.youtube.com/bandsandmovie so please subscribe, rate, comment and favourite our videos. 


By the way, I am really happy with how Movie 1 is doing on YouTube. Since we got taken down (read below as to why) and made a new channel, we have had over 1,000 views! So, well done guys.


Picture Meerkat says he is delivering the last few concepts in the next few days. I am due a new batch tomorrow morning. Look out for more news about scene completion in the coming days :)

Hiya,


Yes, I have begun fixing all of the links that are wrong on the site, so, I'm glad that we have begun to get back to where we once were. Unfortunately, with this has come a big problem. All our views are now missing. Yes that lovely 20,000 views are now all gone. 


Which leads me on to my next problem. Do I start trying to get all my views back, by doing more advertising etc.? It is very stressful. Well, we will see.


On to some good news. The iPhone and iPod Touch app is getting an update. Our developer Koh Jing Yu has been flat out adding some new features into it, including the new trailer is under a new button labelled 'Movie Two'. 


The new icon has also been produced. With a mix of characters from the last movie, and the new one. so I will put it at the bottom of this post. 


Hopefully expecting some concepts today or tomorrow, so we can get on with this movie!

Hiya,

EDIT: Yes, we have started the fixing and patching up! The below (well, most of it) still applies so read it, but I can confirm that all parts of movie 1 and the trailer for movie 2 (teaser trailer 1) can now all be found online HERE we will be trying to get the rest of the meerkat videos (like special features) up as soon as possible. I am going to start fixing the links on the site now, so bare with me if some of the links don't work when you click them!


Big problem tonight which you need to be made aware of. Unfortunately, do to a reason we haven't been informed of, our YouTube Channel: Th3AppStoreReviewer has been permanently suspended. YouTube never informed us as to why, or how but this afternoon, the channel was no more.


This means, on the homepage, I have had to delete the link to part 1 of the movie, being that the video no longer exists. Watch this post though, because I am deeply busy in uploading all the Edvard Orlovski: The Movie Videos onto a new channel: bandsandmovie. So, bare with me, I will put an edit in this post once the movie is back online, which it nearly is, and then we need to start the long old process of trying to make every video link and video embed gets fixed to the new details.


Sorry guys, we don't know why or how, and are really annoyed as to why we weren't informed, but there isn't much we can do. The movies are the main priority to get back onto YouTube, then we will work on trying to get the new trailer back on. Also, the special features are just about still on my computer (was going to delete them soon) but so they will make their way on probably sometime tomorrow. So subscribe to the new channel, a link will come in the edit. You will know I have edited this post because I will make it clear at the top of the post.

Hiya,


Can you believe it? I can't we now have over 15,000 views and I am so excited because I think it could be 20,000 by the end of the day :) 


As usual, if you don't believe me check the start page of this very website, where I have now included the screen shot itself, and then if you click it, it will take you to the actual video!


Thanks again people, lets make the rating better!

Hiya,


Can you believe it! Yesterday, I told you we had over 5,000 views, which means over night we have gone up to 10,000. In fact, we are on 11,000 views and still rising. I currently have two videos in the top fifty videos of the day, and I don't know why this one isn't in the top fifty videos? Will hope it will be in there tomorrow! But two of our videos in the top 50 videos of the day in one day! wow, thats good! One is on page 3/5 and the other is on page 4/5! 


So thank you to all the people that have supported us and made this possible! Don't believe me? Check the top of the start page on this very website!

Hiya,


Before I get on to the main attraction, I have to accept Picture Meerkat's deadline change (posted below) because A) I need my burrow and B) Is there actually another choice? So get better soon Picture Meerkat, and make sure you don't post on my page again or your families burrows will pay the price!


Now on with the main attraction. I have checked the YouTube page for Edvard Orlovski: The Movie - Part 1 and it has now gone right over that 5,000 mark! In fact, its gone over 5,100 and is right on its way for the next big one, 10,000 views. Thanks so much to everyone that has watched it, we hope you enjoyed the movie and now we have to make the second one even better as a big thank you to you all! The only problem is, with our rise, has come a fall. The movie (part 1) is now only rated 2.5/5! So head over to that page, if you don't have a YouTube account, make one! Get us back to 5 star!


Don't believe me about the views or rating? Head to the 'start' page of this very site, and look at the top of the page!
