Over the past year I've been looking for examples of other weekly Webisode series. There aren't many. Sure, there's, but that's a vlog, not an action/comedy/drama narrative. Then there's a bunch of YouTube stuff - you know, people getting hit in the nuts with Mentos explosions. And, of course, there are network shows and movies from Big Media.

But what about weekly Webisodes? It would be cool if there were a whole slew of 'em. Every Monday you could check Colonel Crush and a few other sites. On Tuesday, you'd check some others. Eventually, we would have a new form of appointment TV for every day of the week.

Well, recently I found the coolest of all Webisode shows. It's called Sanctuary, and can be found at

Sanctuary is a bi-weekly sci-fi series starring Amanda Tapping of Stargate SG-1 fame. She plays Dr. Magnus, who hunts down evil beings with her daughter. To keep costs down, they use lots of 3d models as backgrounds. Expect the models to be used in future Sanctuary video games.

You can view the Webisodes free on their site, and download standard definition Webisodes for $1.99 or high definition for $2.49.

If you know of any other regular narrative Webisodes, let us know. I'd like to see the Webisode format gain a critical mass.

All hail the Weekly Webisode!

I FINALLY got the audio done and uploaded. The Internet has been down at my house all weekend, so things were ...interesting.

But, the movie is great(!), and the sound editing went really well. The music isn't exactly Beethoven, but it really underlines the moods without distracting from the picture. That's the idea, right?

Now, let's see if Nathan can download it, render it and upload it by noon. (3:1 odds against... I think he might be asleep... ;) )

Wow. CC3 is complete. My favorite is still the car chase - followed by the requiem.

And, if you haven't seen/heard ShoEvil, check it out. I got to put my new Children's Choir library to work...

Wow! Doing the music for Webisode 3 of The Sword in the Stone OF ACTION! was quite a job! It was tough to keep a driving beat and sync to the cuts, punctuate the menace, heroism and the emotional thread and include the character themes as well. It took much longer than I expected, and we launched 3 hours too late.

But it was worth it! It's my favorite Webisode by far. We have a fight scene before this movie closes. I only hope I can make it as intense as the car chase!

The music for CC3 Webisode 2 is DONE!!!

It's really cool too... The first part is similar to the music I did for the trailer. The second part uses Pow's! standard chords. But the final bit is new. We're talkin' CAR CHASE! Yeah!

Okay, here are two Colonel Crush trivia questions:

1) What does the women's choir sing during the Hail Britannia theme?

2) What is the sound that we used after Victor has been cloned, and the steam is still rising from his body?

Can't figure it out? Come back next week and I'll spill the beans!

Well... I'm composing the music for CC3 Webisode 2 and it's almost scary how easy the tempos are lining up.

Sometimes you start making music in 4/4 time, and the "hit points" start coming after 3 1/2 or 4 1/2 beats. Next thing you know you're messing with the tempo up, down and sideways.

For an example, check out the CC3 Trailer. Count the beats and clap your hands with the music. In the "almost there" section the tempo goes up to over 400 beats per minute. Not long after it slows down to under 40 beats per minute!

But CC3 Webisode 2 is just flowing along. The second half should be especially sweet.

Check it out Monday morning at 12:00 am!
