Critical Role

Ամիս առաջ

Executive Producer Sam Riegel chats through taking The Legend of Vox Machina from concept to a finished animation and the many, many steps in between.
A very special thanks to our animation partner, Titmouse, our partners at Amazon Studios and Amazon Prime Video, and of course the 88,887 Kickstarter backers that made this dream a reality. We love you!

interesting choice of windows last century for the presentation. "the animation is drawn by hand" = WHY ????? when it is so much faster, efficient, easier and practical to do it digitally

Overseas animation huh? So you guys are having South Koreans do it like so many anime production companies?

This is so exciting!! Its so cool to learn about the process, and I’m so hyped to see the final product (even though ive never seen C1). On that note, do I attempt to watch C1? Where do I begin?
Alllex Ամիս առաջ
I recommend it! It’s a fun story and a bit faster paced than C2 since the stream actually started a couple years into their campaign. Do it for the Scanlan, Grog, and Pike dynamic if nothing else. I say just start on episode 1. The audio quality varies wildly early on, but I was never too bothered by it like it did other people.

Is that how animation is always done? No wonder animated media takes soooooo long.

Do we know by now if there will be a physical copy of the series to buy? Considering it gets streamed on Amazon Prime probaly not? Does anybody know if Amazon Prime Shows get Blu-Ray releases?

I want "Scanlan Attacks the house" "Terry and Grog Annoy Shop Keeper" "Scanlan falls in love with Percy" and last but certainly not least "Vox's Vacation"... My mind can only do so much.

Fun to see a part of the process. I'm hoping this will be a better thing to do than the studio approach with endless amounts of tinkering making everything a hot steaming pile of offal. 2 minutes after release, there will be people calling out what player got high and mighty, had to much influence, turned this into shit.

Yes, making an animated series is really tough work. I have only witnessed one in the making and it was an animated short some dear friends made. They took more than a year, with only 5 or 6 people working on it, and it was all by hand and the result was gorgeous. They won an award! But it takes time, effort, carpal tunnel issues and lot of sleepless nights. Obviously our beloved team making TLOVM is bigger and it helps, but it's far more complex and it has so much detail on it, plus they also have to take precautions because COVID. Of course I'm looking forward to see the first chapters, but I respect and (most of all) I'm grateful that they are taking their time to make an awesome production. I saw the drawing of the backgrounds and they were just mind blowing. I would say "I can't wait to see it" but I will wait, because I believe it will be worthy. Thank you Sam for the update and a huge "thank you" to all the team that it's making this amazing animation. I know it's going to be epic!

@Red Zorks Don't get me wrong, I love anime. But I doubt it's as simple and easy as "japanese studios can produce as good (or even better) animation for the same price just because". Plus, since they working with western company, it's much easier for Critical Role to stay actively involved in the whole process.

This doesn't really make any sense. didn't they originally have a a release date of august this year, i remember them saying it was suppose to come out months ago but had to be delayed due to covid. so surely it should be almost done, right? but the fact they wont give a release date kinda tell me we've got at least another 6 months wait. kinda disappointing really.
