AWESOME NEWS FOR ONCE (3/29/15)

FIRST OF ALL, WOW

     Yesterday starting from 12 a.m. and ending at 6 a.m. I streamed  (you can watch all of our streams here) me beating Halo 2, then at 1 pm Alex and I streamed us beating the final level in Halo 2 which took a couple hours, and now that those are all exported and accounting for other uploads in between (such as a new machinima, stop motion, Fraction's Fandoms, Trailers, and more) we now have videos scheduled all the way to June 2 (as of right now). I have never felt so relaxed in my life- now all I have to worry about is The Unathletics, PKMN, and Crash Course recording. 

SOME PLANS AND THINGS COMING SOON

     As planned and completely on schedule, Crash Course will be premiering mid summer. We have about 15 episodes and minisodes planned for this season. So far we've recorded 3 episodes and 3 minisodes so yea, we're pretty on track. You can get an excerpt from one here. The Unathletics cast and crew are hard working as always, so you can expect about 10 episodes for Season 1, premiering this fall. We're all very excited to show you, and hope to have a trailer by this summer. PKMN, the prophetic project, should finally be done this year. As long as we can all get together to record, then we'll be all set. As always, it should be a joy. Another great thing I bet YOU ALL ARE EXCITED FOR, Dady and Sonn 2: Sonn's Revenge will be a thing. 

ABOUT OUR NEW MACHINIMA AND A MACHINIMA WE'VE PLANNED

     I never really planned to make a machinima, but while I was practicing some camera work, I just got bored and went ahead and put in VO's my self. It's only going to be 3-5 parts (I just finished part 2), and isn't going to be crazy or anything since I only have 3 body actors. But one machinima that we've had planned- you guessed it- DADY AND SONN AND SONY VS THE COVENANT! Another Halo 2 Machinima that has been in the works for a looong time now. Only going to be a 4-5 man project, but either way still awesome. Connor will be playing Sony, I will be playing Dady, and John will be playing Sonn of course. Vehicles, dad jokes, murder, and aliens will not fail to disappoint.

NEWS AND CRAP (3/18/15)

LOTS OF FUN STUFF, SO LET'S GO

     Well, first of all I just want to thank you all so much for the support of the ONN channel. From our last video alone we were able to get 7 subscribers (bringing us up to 22) and my first video to hit 500+ views. Stuff like that is what honestly keeps us going! 

IMPORTANT: I (FRACTION) WILL BE TAKING ABOUT A WEEK OR TWO OFF FROM UPLOADING TO RECOLLECT MYSELF (MORE INFO BELOW)

     This week and next week are standardized testing weeks. The last time we had standardized tests (literally less than 2 months ago) I already had plenty of uploads scheduled. After the Channel Trailer though, my well has run dry. During testing I thought it would be best to dedicate some time and just relax after how stressful this crap is. Over the break though I will of course be working on the Unathletics Episode 3 (episode 2 wrapped production a few days ago) which has been coming along swimmingly. The voice actors have been courteous and very hard working these past months, so shout out to them. Depending on how quickly we can wrap the first season up, while looking presentable, you can expect it either mid-summer or early fall! It has been such a blast, and if it gets good reception we'll definitely pick up on Season 2! Some concepts have actually already been made because we have had such a blast, but either way it will still be fun.

MINECRAFT SEASON 2 (?) AND THE YOSHI CHRONICLES!

     For a little while now I've been saying that I was going to work on making a second season of Minecraft, but honestly the game is murderous to play. It no joke sucks the life out of me. I do have an interesting concept if I am going to continue it, involving some minigames and similar things like the guys over at Achievement Hunter do. Now onto The Yoshi Chronicles. Over this break, I may also record the first season of The Yoshi Chronicles. I've been hardcore procrastinating this, but I think I'm finally ready to get it over with. I don't even know if I'll continue The Yoshi Chronicles after the first season, or if I just want to make it some fun mini-series.

NEW SERIES (THAT HAS ACTUALLY LAUNCHED)

     I didn't expect for this to be a thing, but we actually did all in all end up getting a live-action series. ON Skits- which debuted with the Channel Trailer, is a new series featuring me and other members of the crew. Episodes will NOT be often, as we rarely get together, and when we do it won't feature Lukas, John, Alex, Connor, or Brooks for a little while since we don't get together much since we live a few hours away from each other (except for Brooks who is nearby but we're both pretty lazy). We hopefully will feature them in later episodes for whenever we're able to get together during the summers.

SPEAKING OF SUMMERS...

     As we've said the past year and 9 months, we hope that Summer 2k15 will be the summer that we officially get PKMN (The Secret Project that John, Ryleigh, and I have been working on for 5 YEARS now) off of the ground. For those of you that don't know, PKMN is a trilogy of short films that we've been trying to make since 2010. We didn't even have a channel, and OverbyNetworks wasn't even a concept until 2012 (thanks Brooks). Anyways, we literally have everything we need- we just need to get together with some nice weather this summer. And actually, we don't even think the weather will stop us this year. Anyways, these short films are only about 20-30 minutes long in length, and combined they only total up to about an hour. 

THANKS FOR READING THOSE OF YOU THAT MADE IT THIS FAR -FRACTION

NEWS AND CRAP (3/5/15)

HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN?

     The answer is that it hasn't really been that long. I (Fraction) have been pretty busy with this cartoon, strep throat, and writing.  I haven't been writing scripts (what's wrong with you) but I've been writing some short stories for a while now. We've been working on a lot of stuff, and that channel trailer we've  been talking about? Well, you can expect it sometime next week. The final plans are in order, and we're going to try and have at least 4 cast cameos (not including myself). I can't wait to see how this plays out, and honestly the rest of this year is going to be a fun one for us. In 3 Months and 20 days, our channel becomes 2 years old. Besides PKMN and Animated, this is the longest I've ever actually worked on something. This channel and community is kind of like my child, and I'm its irresponsible young father. Seeing it grow and change has been such an amazing experience, and we have some big things planned for this years special. I actually won't be near anyone except Crazy on the channel's birthday. Since my birthday (June 22) is so close to the channels birthday (June 25), I'll still be at the beach. Don't worry though, I'll make sure to schedule the upload and see if we can do something live. I haven't rambled on like this without little subtitles in a long time... anyways, The Yoshi Chronicles. It has actually snowed today, and I'm thinking about having the first couple of episodes take place in a snowy setting. Thoughts? Anyways, I found out something cray cray.
