Jackson Publick has a long update on all things Venture along with the news that Season 3 looks like a go — no duh.
We’ve recently turned in “Guess Who’s Coming to State Dinner?” and “I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills” and are presently editing Ben Edlund’s contribution to the season, “¡Viva Los Muertos!” which is a bitch because the first few scenes are very long, continuous pieces of animation, so fixing anything that’s wrong with them requires tedious rendering time just to see if our fixes worked. And the overseas studio apparently suffered some sort of massive system crash, so retakes have been coming in slowly.
Just today, however, we received Korea’s first take of the season finale episode. Looks pretty good–full of action, secret revelations, surprise guest stars, and all the usual cast of lovable cartoon pals. Spent the day calling retakes, of course, but that’s nothing new.
We were back with “Fallen Arches” last weekend, and this Sunday we’re premiering “Guess Who’s Coming to State Dinner?” featuring the return of Bud Manstrong, which nobody asked for, but you’re getting it. Then we’re in reruns for a week, followed by “I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills” and the last three episodes of the season, but good god we’re going to be cutting it really close on those last two…so keep your fingers crossed or there could be more reruns in our mutual televised future.
