B&N XM Production Update

Since the final episode of The Adventures of Bongo and Nakita was delayed in late December, we wanted to provide a progress update and reassure everyone that the project has not been shelved.

Roughly 48 hours before the intended release, technical issues had prevented the editor and VFX artist from accessing the last 25% of the raw animation data. After the holidays passed and clear heads could better evaluate at the situation, we accepted that the data was lost and that that portion of the episode would need to be completely reanimated. At the same time, we also decided to send a number of scenes for "reshoots," additional second unit animation, and since we were already past the deadline, why not go all out on VFX to really polish things even more.

Now we're about a month out from those decisions and can report we are about 50% through that additional work. Ironically, on January 30, the problematic files decided to uncorrupt themselves; however, the new plan proceeds regardless to ensure the final product is the best that it can be.

After the debacle before release in December, we are hesitant to set a new release date at this time. But rest assured that work on the episode continues tirelessly, daily, and it will be published as soon as it's ready. We thank the fans and all the cast and crew for their support and their patience.
