Felicia Day and The Guild have had an enormous influence on us wanting to make web video. Ever since I started blogging I have been a fan of just how much Felicia has achieved. She really is an inspiration, a role model and all-round nice person. I frequently write about The Guild and people connected to it on my blog, the last geek bus home, because they are very newsworthy – and today the news is – EPISODE 1 OF SEASON 4 IS OUT NOW! Here it is:
Behind The Scenes….
One of the reasons we did the “Behind The Scenes of The Guild Season 4 with Higlet” series was because the idea really really amused us. But there was something else. The Guild is released on MSN/Xbox Live first and only onto YouTube later. That doesn’t stop people searching for The Guild on YouTube, though, and usually it goes to RickRolls (I’m looking at you, “watchtehguild”) or rips from MSN. The Guild is sponsored by Microsoft and the views need to be counted by them because it helps funding.
How does the Higlet stuff help?
When people search for The Guild Season 4 on YouTube now, our videos come up near the top. I’ve updated all the information on the videos with a direct link to Season 4 Episode 1 and an annotation that directs people to watchtheguild.com. Hopefully people will find our videos and then click off to the real Season 4 of The Guild.
The REAL Behind The Scenes
And if you want the real deal in Behind The Scenes of The Guild, you need to be listening to the Knights of The Guild podcast, the Official Fan Podcast for The Guild. Each week they are going to be doing a CompanionCast stuffed full of snippets, info and gossip direct from the set – the actual, real set. The first one is out tomorrow, so look out for that!
