    Who’s breathing thru the nose during the recording?! Quite annoying!!!
    Otherwise, I really liked the movie! Thank you for a nice vfx show!

  • I only breathe through my blow hole so it can’t be me. ;P

    Mike and his crew are working really hard to get all the technical issues clicking full steam on the Google Hangout versions. There are bound to be a few glitches in these first few. Stick with it, I’m sure it’ll all get dialed in in the coming weeks.

    Thanks for your feedback! Any and all comments are always much appreciated.

    Wurd,
    Matt
