Wow I love this idea. I can't believe that I just stumbled upon it. I would love be of any assistance whether it be drawing or voice acting :) For voice acting in future episodes, will there be original characters? I feel like I could do better voice acting with an original character (whether minor or not) than with another.

Hi!

So, at the moment we are not taking new actors or crew. However, if you were to put in application and send a example of your VA-ing skills, we can put you on a list of possible VAs for future episodes.

Thanks so much, and we’re glad you found us!

Thanks,

MYSTERY KIDS PROJECT UPDATE FOR 8/15/14

Hello Mystery Kids fans!

This is Zach, current producer(ish…Tiffany is on a break at the moment) of the Mystery Kids Project Episode 2: Return of the Bedlam.

This update has been a long time in the coming, as I am sure many of you are aware. So, without FURTHER ADO!

I bring you: UPDATE FOR AUGUST!

—-

The Mystery Kids team, first off, are amazing. They are a fantastic group whom do nothing but work hard long hours for a project that is really (technically) in their free time.

But, as any good group of nerds/geeks/totally normal people without a unhealthy obsession with fandoms of ANY kind would say: What’s “Free Time?”


But that’s off topic. They are really an amazing group of people to work with. They’re art and writing skills are suburb, their hard work is crazy, and their humor helps keep the project from killing us all.

So, they are fantastic.

However, the project itself is a monster. A lovable, large monster that shoots nerdy references from it’s eyes. But a monster all the same.

As such, it has been very difficult to complete. This has been compounded by the fact that in the process of a switch between two people, Tiffany and I, some documents were lost to the wonderful world of Gmail. We managed to retrieve them, but in the meantime time was lost.

Not only that, the schedule that we set up has turned out to be COMPELTELY unreliable and unreasonable. So, our original ideas and estimate of when the project would be released were off. We’re behind schedule.

We are plugging along slowly but surely. By the end of the month, we will be about 45% done with the initial work. Meaning, we will need another 2 months to assemble and edit it together for a completed project.

So, in a nutshell: WE ARE STILL HERE. WE ARE STILL WORKING. WE ARE NEARING 45-50% COMPLETION. A ESTIMATED RELEASE DATE OF NOVEMBER IS OUR GOAL FOR THE COMPLETED EPISODE 2.

——-

The Next Order Of Business: What to do AFTER Episode 2?

We put a lot of thought into this. Doing long, massive episodes that take so long to create and edit together is incredibly difficult and time consuming. The logistical task of putting out a simple document to every single member of a team is crazy to do, and amazingly hard to coordinate. There are simple ways one thinks to do complete that sort of simple task- create a blog with updates for everyone, send emails to them all, use Skype- and we do all of those things. And still information gets lost.

SO.

Our decision is to do a series of minisodes. These are like the episodes, but shorter in length. Think 10-15 minute long mini episodes about certain characters or events.

Our writers have already churned out a couple of scripts. And I can say from my TOTALLY “unbiased” opinion: They are absolutely amazing. The different writers, and the use of a editing process through two or three dedicated editors/producers allows for both series and character continuity and completely original and varying writing styles.

The episodes range from very funny to incredibly dark. These range of minisodes make for a massive list of possibilities allowing our beloved characters to grow, form new relationships with each other and learn about who they are.

And, of course, make Daisy-chain headwear. And go to laser tag. And meet Death personified….sort of.


But I’m saying too much. On the technical side of things, we’re having the minisodes be 10-15 minutes long, each written by a different pairing of writers and edited by one or two producers, and released every 1.5-2 months following the release of Episode 2: Return of the Bedlam.

The final announcement I have for you all is a series of comics we will begin releasing here and on Tumblr. Begin to look for these in the coming 3 months. They will be short and long, drawn by our lovely and amazing artist(s), and be written by our writers. They will serve as placeholder in between minisodes and be short, fun spoofs on the Life of the Mystery Kids.

Before any of that can happen, however, we need to get Episode 2: Return of the Bedlam out to you all! In doing so, though, we need to ask a few things:

1. KEEP UP THE SUPPORT! We read everything you send to us. Sometimes it takes us a while to respond, but that has nothing to do with you and just has to do wit the amount of work that we have going on.
2. BE PATIENT! We’ve been looking at the internet (yes, even Instagram. #StillwaitingforMysteryKids with a picture of a skeleton. Very funny. :))
3. THIS ONE IS VERY IMPORTANT! We no longer need more crew. After Episode 2 is released, we might. But at this point ,we have enough cast and crew. If you are interested in voicing a character in the future, or want to submit fanart (WHICH WE LOVE WAY TOO MUCH!) please send a email to Mysterykidsproject@gmail.com and we will put you on a list for possible VAs….and probably pass around any fanart and be inspired by it and you.  
4. MORE CONTENT AND ART WIL LBE RELEASED AS WE ADVANCE! We’re working towards the end, which means the art is really beginning to flow. Expect more art in the future!

Ok, so one FINAL thing. You have all waited so patiently for so long. Which means you at least deserve some un-official Minisode titles! They’re (mostly) self explanatory. And the amount of references in these? THEY’RE OVER 9000!

-“Girls Night Out”
-“Bringer Of Death”
-“Hang Out”
-“Ghost in the Machine”
-“Different Doors”
-“Robot”

That’s all for now, folks! Thanks for your patience and support. It really means the world to us.

Thanks,

-Mystery Kids Project Crew
