Thanks everyone for all the comments so far. For Chris and William, thanks for your comments on the progress I've made technically... but! Don't worry. There is still time to disappoint you in episode 4! I want to forewarn that I had all kinds of issues with the settings and there are plenty of focusing issues in the second half. Please forgive this and note that I figured out what to do for ep 5, which I may start shooting soon. My camera can be set to a fixed/manual focus, but when I do this, it gives me lighting issues! I can seem to adjust focus or shutter speed but not both. Be assured that I know now how to achieve at least the quality of the first half of HOO 4 and intend to do so. I've never used a webcam, but I did buy the c920 and may try using it in episode 5 anyway. Either way, I hope to constant improve the quality of the work.
William, you mentioned something in the spoiler toothat I can't mention until the rest of the episode is posted, lest I spoil content that hasn't come up yet, but I'll explain when the time comes.
Shawarma: nothing is out of line with your criticism. Remember, though, that these are fictional characters, each with their own personality. Since the primary cast are all diverse and very strong in their beliefs, there will be things that the characters say that you disagree with, and that I disagree with. Also, remember that characters in HOO, from all points of view, aren't very rational at times. The show is meant never to tell anyone what to believe, but to encourage viewers, if they wish, to take a different look at things after enjoying the show. Who knows: maybe Johnny and Brent will form a truce sometime soon.
What did you viewers think about the "hair" and "furniture"?... I speak obliquely so as to not spoil anything, but you know what I mean if you watched it.
