Friday September 23rd

This was a pretty big week for Godspeed. 1. I'm now working on a second pass on the script! 2. Had a kick-off with our character designer; he should be starting initial concept art next week. 3. I'm halfway done with the website for everything Godspeed. It will be a hub for all the updates; people will be able to join the project and pledge from now until we're done, and I'm working on add-on pledges for people who have already pledged but want to advance to the next tier or want to add a consulting session. I will most likely launch this will a mini trailer to the docu-series and some of the first concepts from the project. Could be a week or two, but it's looking really good! 4. I'm continuing consulting sessions, and I'm about finished with the majority of them. What an experience this has been; the coolest part is hearing how people from all over the world have found Final Space. The big focus right now is to continue getting this script in a spot that we're happy with so can start the boarding by the top of next month. From that point, I'll scratch most of the dialogue and start building the radio play while I start looking for the cast. Overall I felt like I got a lot done this week! And the story is really starting to take shape. As always, more soon! O


  • Hi there! Wow! The website is even better than I anticipated. It’s awesome to watch this thing and most of all the community grow. To quote a certain song written by Annie Lennox and performed by Whitney Houston:
    “Say it, baby, don’t give up
    You got to hold on to what you got,
    Oh, baby, don’t give up,
    You got to keep on moving on don’t stop (yeah yeah).
    I know you’re hurting, and I know you’re blue,
    I know you’re hurting but don’t let the bad things get to you.

    Step by step, bit by bit,
    Stone by stone (yeah), brick by brick (oh, yeah)
    Step by step, day by day, mile by mile"

  • So glad everything is going well and excited you get the opportunity to create for yourself, with some corporation writing it off for ‘tax’ reasons.

  • I remember when I was watching Olan’s cartoon pilots like “Rob and Detective Boy” and “Lion’s Blaze” it’s so amazing to see him accomplish Final space. Seeing it get cut short was very tragic however the Tennessee wonder child make something from the ashes has inspired me. Thank you Olan!!

  • how would you fit the feeling of an entire 20 minute episode into half of that??? like would it just be some random adventure or would it be lore based?
