For all you Felicia Day fans, a full new season of The Guild is coming November 20th 25th, and this time in high definition. Web star and famed new media producer, Miss Felicia Day has turned down numerous offers for sponsorship deals for the series. She dropped by Revision 3’s Internet Superstars (above) last week to update Martin Sargent on the future of the series, and life as a gamer.
Of the choice to stay indie, Felicia says, “I didn’t want to give up the rights to my show. A lot of people wanted to buy my show, and fund it, but even with a good budget, you are not making a lot of money as a producer. And for me, I wanted to have the right partner help with the distribution and take it to a new level, but also retain the rights to what I created. I think as a web producer you want to break that Hollywood rule that as a writer you have to sign away that copyright, and then the studio owns it.”
Known for being completely devoted to the show’s fans (Felicia mails out most of the show’s purchased DVDs herself) the entire cast of the show recently dropped by Blizzcon to show a preview of the first episode.
After making the decision to go forward with no sponsor, Felicia posted this on her blog: “Mantra: Don’t wait for other people to make things happen.” So The Guild forged on buoyed by a large amount of volunteer fans who helped to get the show done.
When we last left Codex, Bladezz, Tinkerballa, Vork, Zaboo, and Clara, they’d just battled and conquered the worthy opponent of Zaboo’s mother, only to leave Codex realizing she now may still have a warlock sleeping on her couch. Find out how these gamers will continue to forge a real-life bond with each other, while continuing to battle evil in the cyber world when the second season drops November 20th 25th.
UPDATE: Corrected the date of Season 2 premiere. It’s really November 25th and was incorrect in the video.
UPDATE 2: Well, so much for staying indie: ‘The Guild’ Lands Microsoft and Sprint In Exclusive Deal
