Episode 050 – Raiders of the Lost Camera

It’s all been leading up to this. The crew of the Fibonacci are in dire straights. They need to find the Camera Obscura. This episode is all about action. We fast forward through that boring exposition stuff and get to straight to the fun parts. Of course, sometimes exposition can help you understand a situation, but where’s the fun in that? Find out what happens to our heros in Raiders of the Lost Camera!

It has been exactly one year since I released the first “adventure” episode of the podcast. Incorporating my #NerdyPhotoCrew has really changed the podcast for the better, in my opinion. The crew has been on quite the journey over the last year, and so have I.

We’ve all grown and learned a lot in the last twelve months. I have learned a great deal about audio production and animation in that time (as you can see from the increasing production value of the animated episodes). There was certainly no intention to add all these tools to my skill set when I started out, but here we are. Seriously though, I had no idea what I was getting into creating an animated podcast episode. However, I am proud of what I have accomplished.

Furthermore, it brings me great pleasure to present the conclusion of the first chapter in this story, Raiders of the Lost Camera!
