As you mave have seen last night or at channel102.net we decided to retire Cakey! The Cake from Outer Space early and stop making the show by self-cancelling with a seven minute episode (coincidentally the same time as the other puppet show and our rival for the top slot Puppet Rapist did the same thing).
I really like making these 102 shows… it’s the first thing I’ve worked on in a while that I really get into and get nervous about when they’re screened. However, we haven’t taken any time off in a year—we jumped from one show to another without stopping—and the strain of doing (for us) a really technically involved show was wearing on us. Since we’re only a three person crew… who all kind of live together and shoot in the apartment, it was getting really claustrophobic.
I think both Kirk and I had a lot of other Cakey stories to do (Duncan becomes a superhero, Duncan joins the football team, Cakey runs a-foul of a paranormal expert, the science fair, etc.), but they just took so much time to shoot and edit. Our actor for “Dad” is moving to LA next month as well.
I don’t really want to be “out,” but maybe we’ll individually trying working with different crews or on our own projects. Or not do anything, who knows.
Thanks for following Cakey.
