Just checked my page... I am extremely sorry for my lack of updates and communication. I also want to apologize for the bad news I'm about to give to you all. Before you stop reading just know there is good news as well.

I'll start with the bad first.  I cannot apologize enough first of all for not communicating and updating you all with what has been going on. There is a legitimate reason for me being out of contact for a while. Here it is... I had a very fatal crash on my PC a while back, and could not boot my computer.  It seems the crash corrupted the hell out of my operating system to the point it couldn't boot and turn on properly let alone locate my drives. I had no choice but to run a clean install on my operating system. It is highly recommended to back up your drives before doing this, however without the ability to boot my computer I could not access anything. I've been looking toward every alternative possible up until now. Without backing up my files, I lost everything, from programs to files, videos, and yes animations :'(
All the work I've done is lost, unless I can find a hacker with enough magic to locate and bring these files back to life somehow. For the majority of this time I have not even had a computer to log on let alone complete any of my work and now it is all gone...  Some of it remains on a external hard drive which I will attempt to back up and upload very soon, but it's nowhere near what I had before. I understand many of you were probably unhappy with me to begin with and I wouldn't blame any of you now after what has happened.

Here is the good news...
I've been putting in massive overtime at work, and it shouldn't be long before I can obtain a brand new computer... One with boatloads more processing power, greater rendering speed, more space, and reliability. This thing will be a beast, and with this beast, I can finally get the Octane Render Plugin as well. Meaning that my future projects will be greater than what I was working on. More realism, life-like animations that will set a new standard for snake peril videos. This is not a call for further donations, this is a goal, as well as a promise. I cannot guarantee a specific date or timeline, but I can promise you that I will achieve this goal. And if I have to bust my ass to gain your trust again, I will. Which is why I will refuse to accept any donations for a while.

Sincerely,

        The Coils

   Hey guys just wanted to let you know I am still here. Going through new living arrangements yet again but this time things are a lot more affordable and convenient. This on top of my new position provides the opportunity for greater projects to come, I will get that montage up as soon as I can and provide the download link for supporters as soon as I can ;)

Okay I have a rough edit/layout for the montage, meaning most of the clips are edited into a rough draft version of the final video. I've had people ask whether I'm adding sound fx, so I'd like to ask everyone's opinion on that, since it will add time to completing the final project. Also thought I'd let you know that altogether it's looking to be just under 2 minutes long unless these next few edited shots fill it in (depends how I edit them). I'm also throwing in some screen shots and clips stored away on my hard drive that were never uploaded to deviantart. Do you guys think I should spend some more time to make it longer?  I'm not sure exactly how much time I'm going to have once I start training for my new position(Yes I got it btw!)  Once my training is done I should have some more wiggle room with my schedule. However, I'm looking to put more time towards that because after training, my salary increases and I'm free to start working towards the next position.
Any particular questions or concerns?
(Hopefully ones I haven't answered in previous posts/updates?)

Since this Update is probably going to be long I'll make it easy for those that just want specific directions to certain details (although I encourage you to read everything because there is some info that might really interest you for future projects).
1st paragraph is a personal update about the meeting.
2nd is Montage info.
3rd is about what I hope to do next.


Okay so the meeting went extremely well! Like REALLY REALLY good. I interviewed with some high end corporate people and I'm pretty sure I got on their good side. Well I won't get into all the details but I'm assuming I got the job because they're running a background check and had me do a drug test, I don't know why they would do that and then be like "Well everything came out good but we actually were just looking to kill time and money" lol. I'll know for sure in the next day or 2 but I'm about 99.99% sure that I made it!

Now for the montage update, my USB adapter came in and works great so I'll be adding some slightly older but none-the-less good snake peril clips from my hard drive(I'll see if I can throw in any extra Roxy clips I might have on there as well). Shots are all rendered I believe, but I'll double check after this. So just some color correction and compositing, then edit and mash up the whole thing together and this project will be 100% ready to upload for all you wonderful supporters!

Once this is complete, I will be working to prepare for my next project. Several ideas in mind but I am really hoping to strive for a short film with LOTS of snake peril and perhaps some vore. Actually if adding Vore will bring in more donations I'll probably go through with it, because I'm really wanting to update my graphics card and get the Octane Render Plugin for the full realistic looking renders. The better the graphics card, the faster the renders and the faster I can work on enhancing each shot to the max.  And adding extra material for everyone with a good card and octane will look much better, and would actually be FASTER, than creating a strictly snake peril short film without the card and plugin. PLUS everyone gets to see what they want!

You may be asking yourself, "Why is he talking about this now?"
Well, I did some research as well as some math. I'll have to look more into it for specifics and details but... On average, we are looking at a minimum of 50 supporters, donating 50$. Since I won't looking into this project straight off the bat, plus it will take some time with preparation and planning (setting up the story, perhaps concept art and scriptwriting to just make it Hollywood worthy)... I encourage all my followers and supporters to start saving up now. I won't ask you to put all your funds towards it, and I understand life's personal issues and bills etc. So if you start putting away some cash here and there, you could reach a goal of 50$ in no time. Heck, if all my followers pitched in it would only take 6-7$ each. But I chose to assume that life will intervene for a lot of you. It already has for me on multiple occasions, but I am still pitching whatever I can towards each project as well. All I can do is hope that everyone can carefully budget for the next best project that is to come.

Okay so I will have to finish rendering one last shot when I get back. I do believe I also found the USB adapter to setup the extra material on my hard drive, I placed the order and it should be here the day I get back if not right after. So once I'm back I'll be able to add some extra material to add to the montage, please stay patient and thanks again for your support. Gotta go! I'll get back to you all at the end of the week ;)

I am currently towards the final stage of my newest montage video, featuring a multitude of animations presented in the more recent screenshots in my gallery. This montage will be released to donators/supporters of such projects. If you are interested in seeing the final result, send me a note. There's a good chance you'll get to see lots of squeezing and possibly some Vore in the future.

Not too bad, I'm putting in hours left and right and it sucks a bit because I won't get a raise for another couple weeks :/
But the montage teaser has been uploaded after multiple stressful attempts. Voretube likes to take it's time allowing uploads though, I might end up making a new account elsewhere so we all don't have to wait even longer than necessary.

I was stressing before, but it's slowly getting better. Especially with everyone's support ;)
Hopefully I can get these videos up soon, especially since it shouldn't be long before I'll be making enough to afford some new toys for future projects :)
