Writing this story has inspired me to try all sorts of nerdy and ridiculous things that don’t fit into a regular chapter. If I do make something bonus for the story, I’ll make a mid-week post (probably on Wednesdays).
So far, I’ve just been calling anything extra that isn’t the main storyline “bonus”, but other than that, I don’t got a plan for it so you know, stay tuned.
For now, please enjoy my commercial for The Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show aka my loving homage to one of my FAVORITE reality TV shows: The Great British Baking Show. I imagine it’s what my characters saw that fateful night on TV (and yes, this will be the set I use in the story, it was a complete blast to build!).
painful things i learned while making this 59 second trailer
- Video in the sims is hard! So much trial and error! I had to convert all the clips, save them to google docs and then edit them on my iPad because for reasons I don’t understand, all my clips came out corrupted and only the iMovie app seemed to be able to do anything with them. It took me so long to figure out how to record it in the first place, that I couldn’t bear to go back in and do it over. So basically, this is the best thing I could make with the sections of the video that weren’t all wonky.)
- I’ll probably try making something like this again because I’m a glutton for punishment lol
- Honestly, calling it the Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show is an attack on myself. It’s impossible to spell unparalleled right and I’ve already had to correct it so many times! I’m a fool! But it’s too late now!
