Over the last few months we've put up a few clumps of videos. A couple Stolen Star Wars (Episode I / Episode II) videos, a couple Detective Police Cops (#1 / #2) and four Special Feature Commentary videos. Not sure if we will be releasing clumps of content from here on out but we didn't see value in trickling out videos one by one so we just threw the videos out Chinese restaurant style - when they were done.
Welp, we have our fancy redesigned website and we released our 2013/2014 Blooper Reel but then we went silent and haven't released a video for a few months. As always we are busy behind the scenes working on new videos however on rare occasions those videos don't get to see the light of day.
Last weekend the TrueNuff.tv crew gathered at Jeff's apartment to recorded the "bumpers" (the intro and outro parts) for the 2014 blooper reel. Most of the dudes went home but Jeff & I decided to keep the creative energy (and drinking) going and spontaneously recorded a podcast. The first episode(s) and all future episodes will be at www.truenuffradio.com if you're interested.
The TrueNuff.tv website has been ushered into the year 2015 and has gone, as the cool kids say, responsive. That means it optimizes for phones and them tablet thingamajiggers.
Also, you can now comment on videos directly on videos on our website. It’s the same Disqus platform that powers comments on our Blogs and Comics and it's super easy to use. Infact it's so easy to use I'm not even gonna explain how.
If you can’t figure it you probably shouldn't be commenting anyway.
Considering it's the year 2015 and we're no longer in the era of dial-up (although if you check Rob's garage you'll probably find two 56k modems packed away for some reason) I figured it's time to bump up the size (resolution) of the comic strips.
Exported comics were 940 pixels wide but now they're up to a beefy 1170 pixels wide. The comics should be much clearer especially older comics where the text was hard to read. Depending on what device you read on you may need to scroll or pinch and zoom a bit. I also turned down (for what) the JPEG compression so the colors should look smoother. Adventurer be warned! With the new size comes a price: you may notice drawing quirks in the older comics but whatever it's part of the charm - don't judge. If these changes are straight up ruining your life let me know and I'll see what I can do but progress has to be made, dammit!
Also the comic isn't officially "back" or anything but if there are new comics they'll probably be posted Wednesday instead of Saturdays. If you want an easy way to be notified when we post a new comic get on the Mailing List.
If you missed it there was a couple rough sketches posted to Twitter / Facebook this past weekend.
You can now, if you’re so inclined, comment to TrueNuff Comic strips using Disqus! (the same thing that powers our blog comments) You should see a "comment" link below every comic strip that will take you to the comment section where you may profess your love for us. Uh, that got weird quick. So yeah what’s cool about Disqus is you can login using your Facebook or Twitter account saving you the hassle of creating yet another account.
New comics were posted to the site the past couple saturdays and a third comic will be up this saturday - can I keep this up this breakneck pace of once a week!?
According to Feedly it's been Over 1,300 days since the last comic was posted - ouch!
I don't know if it's reading a ton of comics lately (with Marvel Unlimited) or all the crazy news with the cartoonists in France but I had the urge to draw a new comic so I did. I'm not going to make any claims like TrueNuff Comic is "back" or anything but I had fun doing this one and I want to do more.
There's also kinda two extra new comics too... kinda... from 2011. Read the two "abandoned" comics and get more info in the Extra Content forum.
I blame Zack Snyder for the 4 year delay in comics.
We are doing Movember again this year! If you don't know what that is it’s a charity event where people grow mustaches to raise awareness and donations for cancer & mental health research. This year from TrueNuff we have Moze, The Rob and myself participating but J.Rai is hanging up the gloves mustache this year.
If you're growing a mo' this year we encourage you to register at the Movember page and join one of our teams above. Also you want to be a captain of an international TrueNuff team (other than USA or Canada) please let us know and we'll try to set it up. If you can’t donate for whatever reason sharing the above links with some friends is also cool.
We've managed to raise over a thousand bucks in 2012 and 2013 so let’s see if we can at least match that again this year!
So it may seem that we're taking a hiatus but behind the scenes we are staying active writing, filming and editing - kinda. We’re currently in a bit of an editing rut as we've got a few videos in production that require extensive (extensive for us) special effects.
Green screen scenes are hard beacuse you have to imagine you're acting in-front of a green screen.
