    Because of the amount of time it would take to make 26 episodes. I'm sure none of us want to spend 8-10 years working on this project.

    14 episodes will take about 4 years, which is much more reasonable.

    Yeah true. Makes more sense. So are the plots of the episodes going to combine?

    Yes. All the episodes have a continuing arc that will be concluded in the 14'th episode. And like what Ginrai said, we just didn't want to work for 4 years on this, and we both agreed we could end the series earlier while keeping the plot as it was. This will mean Evolution can be wrapped up around winter of 2018/Spring 2019.

    Since my laptop died, with scene 3's images (they were not stored on my phone) the new release date for the second episode is January at this point.
    Meanwhile, Springload is now up for auditions. Scoop also needs some auditions, as he is a major character in the second half of the series.

    Episode 4's draft has been completed. I'm sending it to the script editor for review.
    On a side note, I still need actors for Springload and Chromia. Please PM me if interested.

    Cool cool; I'll see if I can send in some auditions by Sunday night.

    Was I supposed to have received the script for episode 3, or is Jazz not in that one? Or was I fired? Because it's totally alright if you found someone better, just let me know so I'm not left wondering!

    The script for episode 3 hasn't been sent out yet because episode 2 is still in production.

    I'm sending it to you in the middle of the week. I need to change some elements of the script, along with Episode 4's script, which is in need of major edits at this point.
    I will say this, Jazz is not in episode 3. It will be more like episode 8 at this point.

    Final scene of Episode 2 is being filmed on Monday. After that, post production begins, and episode 3 will begin filming. Expect lines for episode 3 the day after episode 2 comes out, which looks to be January 29th.

    We are beginning that next week. I have to film the final scene on Thursday because I need to receive a figure for a scene.
    Also, all cast members, if you have a Skype account, I would greatly appreciate it if you can send me your Skype contact info. It's much easier for me to get and receive lines and information over via Skype.
