Miles Cast & Crew
RvB11 - Episode 18 - I <3 NicoHOOOOOLY COW.

Episode 18 of RvB11 involved the most complicated machinima I've ever done for Red vs. Blue, and I couldn't have done it without Kyle Taylor and Steve Cunningham. It's an episode I'm incredibly proud of.

But this episode would have fallen flat were it not for the talents of my good friend, Nico Audy-Rowland. Nico has provided all of the music for Season 11, and I've been digging every second of it. The low guitar and eerie drone for Locus, the lackadaisical rock for Freckles, and of course, the new opening theme (god I love that whistle).

But Episode 18 was a new beast altogether. When we shot the episode, we only had a few weeks left before we had to be wrapped for DVD distribution. The scary part was, we filmed 18 BEFORE we filmed episodes 12-19. See, with such little time to shoot, I figured we should get the CRAZY-HUGE episode out of the way before we had all burnt out. However, I also wanted something else...

...I wanted to give Nico time to SCORE THE ENTIRE EPISODE. HELLS YES.

After days of emails and phone calls, we finally had music for the episode, and when I heard it, no matter what I did, I could not wipe the smile off my face.

So here's to you, Nico.

Thank you for the years of work you've put into your art. Thank you for all the talks and jam sessions we've had together. Thank you for Trocadero.

And thank you for all the songs you've yet to sing.

BuckeyeDon Thanks
All of the music was great, and it was cool to hear Tucker's Bad-assery Theme as he went into action.

BuckeyeDon Thanks
And I love how Tucker's training was paralleled in this episode.

By the way... how did Wash know to prepare Tucker for just such a scenario?

Miles. I have to say while season 10 was kind of sappy and I did love it. But this season is so AWESOME! Good Job!

Episode 18 is AMAZING and the music no doubt pulls it all together. And by amazing I mean GODDAMMIT MILES but also PLEASE WRITE NEXT SEASON TOO. The emotional roller coaster that this episode was had me shouting (well, internally because I was at work) NO WHY IS MILES SO GOOD AT THIS

Great job to both of you. @nico the music can be what makes a scene and you can make a scene, and @Miles like what others have said I love and hate you so much right now but I am really happy with how you are writing rvb. You both are amazing

This season is so intense! And the machinima for that episode looked so crazy, I can't believe how difficult that must've been. You're doing a great job with it, @burnie made a great decision handing it over to you

For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow,
For he's a jolly good fellooooooooooooooooooooooooow (pause),
Which nobody can deny!

@Miles @Kyle @Disz. That was a really great episode. It'll be great to see the cliffhanger this season leaves us with. Specifically for Miles, are you writing this season or only directing?

AMAZING job to everyone on that episode Miles! I can not wait to see what happens to Wash. You are not disappointing anyone in this season. I hope to meet and chat with you at the next RTX or sooner.

You had me cheering out loud for Tucker and Donut's badass scenes, and yelling Wash's name when he got shot.

That was one awesome episode.

I can't wait for next week's episode but I'm already depressed at how long I have to wait for the one after that.

If I may compliment so boldly, your music is like Halo's—I didn't consciously notice it until my second or third play/watch through, but I would have known it as soon as I heard it even before. It makes the series that much better.
