Before the musical episode for Season 3 was filmed, we recorded the songs in Blue Light Studio with our audio engineer and orchestrator, Kersten Tennert. It was a new experience for many of us! Check out what it looked like behind the scenes to prop for this special episode.

Holiday Break! http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2014/12/30/holiday-break/ http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2014/12/30/holiday-break/#comments Tue, 30 Dec 2014 21:57:20 +0000 http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/?p=3158 You can expect our next episode of Season 3 to launch publicly on January 13th, 2015. We’re on a little bit of a holiday break at the moment, and we hope that you are, too!

We know it sucks to wait, but we have some big news about Episode 4. Remember how our Kickstarter backers, amazing as they are, funded a musical episode in our Season 3 Kickstarter fundraiser? Well, they did! And guess what? Episode 4 is that musical episode! We hope this news makes the wait a little more bearable.

Our musical episode features the songwriting and lyrical work of Camille Johnson and Nick Palidwor, the orchestration and engineering of Kersten Tennert, and the singing efforts of not only the main cast, but some new and returning faces as well!

In Episode 3.2, our Standard Action team headed into Delta, BC to explore a dreamlike world of kobolds and… owls? You may not have seen that particular guest star in Episode 3.2, but she did stop by for a visit!

We’re releasing our Season 3 episodes biweekly, so between weeks we’ll be dropping BTS episodes. We posted this on YouTube, but somehow it didn’t make it over here! Whoops… Enjoy!
