How is a New Episode Created?
First, Steve and Jen brainstorm ideas for the new episode by going on a long walk. They talk about a lot of different things that they think might be funny in a new story. Then, Steve will spend several hours writing the episode based on the best ideas. Each voice is recorded separately inside of a closet and the recorded material is put together by Steve on the computer, then posted and distributed by Jen.
Wait, Did You Just Say That You Record Inside of a Closet?
That’s right! We live in a fairly small apartment with hardwood floors, which makes audio recording a challenge because all of those hard surfaces create a lot of echoes! Luckily, we do have a closet that has 3x3 feet of space in front of a bunch of clothes. After struggling through recording our first few episodes, we discovered we could hang blankets on the walls, ceiling, and door to turn our closet into a fancy recording space. Even better, it's also a cool blanket fort at the same time.
Who Does the Voices for the Characters?
Steve does the voices for Red Knight, Green Knight, King Dragon, Purple Knight, as well as various Gnomes and sound effects. Jen voices the narrator voice and Pink Knight. Gwinna does the voice of Princess Pearl, and Sam will voice a new character in our upcoming Halloween episode.
Who Does the Artwork for the Site? It’s Awesome!
We agree, the artwork is fantastic! Our artist and colorist extraordinaire is one of Jen’s best friends from college, Bernadette Joseco. Her days are pretty busy working in the biotech field helping make medicine to help people, so we are very thankful she has been able to find the time to help bring these characters to life for us.
