There were some complications, but the Lego Studios maintenance crew managed to do it: the motherboard for the studio's mainframe has been replaced! Now the studio operations have continued... for the time being. "I'm glad Alvaro Chavez got the mainframe fixed," said scriptwriter Peter Samuel. "It's just that the system's behavior with the new motherboard mystifies me. Whenever I turn the computer on now, I get an alert that states as follows:
Reboot System: Write!!
VIRUS: Continue (Y/N)?
True, this must be connected with the motherboard in some way, though I'm not sure how. The computer seems to have no problems, aside from the fact that it thinks there is new hardware in there, even though only the contrary is true. Unless, of course, it's talking about the motherboard."
In response to this, Mark Matthew, head of the board of directors, has ordered that all files be backed up in hard form. He stated in a press conference yesterday, "With this sort of behavior, I don't know how long it will hold out. For all we know, we may have only prolonged the inevitable failure of the computer. Fortunately, the tech crew is currently backing up all of the files. They're doing photos and documents today. The sound effects and music will be backed up on Thursday."
He also went on to tell how this will affect the production for the studio's current projects: Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile and Forest of Fear. "All of the studio's cameras have a wireless feed to the mainframe to store footage. That way, the cameras won't weigh so much and are easier to move around. However, in situations like this, I'm not sure if that was such a good idea." If filming is to continue on schedule, then there is only one way to cope with these problems: back up each day's footage after it has been filmed. "It may be pain-staking, but it's worth it just to get the movie done on time," said cameraman Phil Maker. "It will especially be important, because we want to get the villains' camp scene filmed this weekend."
Fortunately, Peter got the final draft for the Forest of Fear script printed. "This is definitely a bright moment for the film's production. I just have to give it one more overview with my new scriptwriting book Your Screenplay Sucks!. Then, it will be ready to film this summer."
As for the expected release dates, Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile is scheduled for release on July 16th, 2010 and Forest of Fear may come out October 8th, 2010.
