The Return of the Fruit

And there it is. Episode 3.

I'm so glad this came out so well. This is probably the most boring part of the series, but I couldn't leave it out. Too much character build-up is happening here to simply skip the scene.

Next episode so much more is gonna happen! Oh and finally no-one will get angry then. Also nice to know. Allright, that's it for the spoilers for next episode, especially since I can't tell exactly when that one will air. There'll be a lot of internship-related action going on for the next coupla weeks, so that's really gonna cut in the time I can spend on Sapopera. We're still gonna continue though, don't you worry!

EDIT: I took episode 3 down again. For some reason it would stop loading somewhere halfway the movie...

EDIT2: And it's up again. It still stops somewhere halfway. I suppose YouTube is having problems. Everything else seems to work fine...

EDIT3: Problems solved. It works fine now. Go check it out!

Coming up next...

Yes, it's finally gonna happen. Ever since yesterday Sapopera part three is ready to go live. "SINCE YESTERDAY?!" Why is it still not on then?! Because of internet issues that is. Yesterday evening I put it on upload, only to find out later that night that somewhere halfway through the internet had been cut off and therefore there was nothing to watch on YouTube. And that's how THIS ENTIRE WEEK has been for me. One long chain of unexpected school stuff, camera batteries dying a very untimely death, eyes and/or other facial character properties detaching somewhere halfway a long shoot, etc. etc. Not to mention the fact that this time around I don't have any background characters handy to distract you guys with, so I'd have to find a way to keep todays dialog interesting without them. Which is also more of a hard job than it might seem.
As we are waiting for the upload to complete, why not having some fun already with some bonus pics?


The set of today's episode. Yes, that's a closet. It was the only place in the house that had a street-like looking floor.

The set of last episode. Inside shots are SO much easier to take...

The Sheet of a Thousand Eyes and Mouths. Taken after cutting all the new expressions out that I needed for todays episode.

That's all I've got to show you at this moment, folks! Stay around for the actual episode!

Delay D:

Sorry folks. Due to some unexpected business that has come up this week, there'll be no new Sapopera episode today. Most likely it'll go live tomorrow evening.

Part Deux

I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry! I've been delayed! Anyway, it's still weekend, so you guys have nothing to complain about. Here it is: Sapopera - episode 2!

Why is it so late? Well, actually it's quite early, if you take into consideration that until last Thursday I didn't have any backgrounds to work with. You know, Caroline makes them, and as she also has non-Sapopera-related business to attend to, stuff arrived a tad later than usual. So here I was last Friday (and Saturday morning) photographing like mad, hoping to keep you guys somewhat happy. That's also why there haven't been any spoiler pics and whatnot this week, I was too busy actually making the episode to be able to show off with some bonus material. I'll make up for it, I promise!

Speaking of Caroline and her non-Sapopera-related business; this will be the last episode with backgrounds ENTIRELY made by her. She's got this idea for her Exam Project, and as she's gonna do it alone, she wants to spend as much time as she can spare on said project. Which means from now on I'm entirely on my own. *Sigh*

In my opinion it's a real loss, seeing as Caroline always gave the backgrounds that cute-ish touch that I simply... lack. Ah well, Exam Projects are far more important than free-for-all-to-watch-soapseries-about-fruit, so yeah. Then so be it. Anyway, Sapopera will continue to be aired weekly, at least for this month, so be sure to come back, and keep hitting those F5-buttons on the Saturdays!

Live and kicking!

So yeah!
Here's to celebrate that Sapopera is henceforth officially part of the interwebz! Check it out below!

There are a few things I´m unhappy about, like the very shocky end, but that´s probably just me being a bit sour after a week´s hard labour to get this off the ground. Ah well, one can see what´s happening and what´s happening looks pretty fun. I´m certainly gonna make a second episode, so see you all next weekend!

Yet another Sapopera update! (and some spoilers...)

'Cause stuff is getting real. And fast too! Today I spent like the whole afternoon photographing fruit. With some amazing results! See below for my current working place and a few spoiler pics. Oh, and be a dear and go and say hi to Caroline for the amazing background art she provided. She totally deserves it!

Isn't that the cutest banana ever?

Seems like everyone is in tears these days...

Wow, are you looking grumpy at your wedding!
Well that concludes it for today folks! See you this weekend when we go live!
