27 (who?)
'Rainbow Dash Presents: Bittersweet' is all complete except for the song portion now.

The song sequence is 4-ish minutes long, so I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to finish it. I'm hoping it'll only be 2 weeks, but with Monstercat work I have to also work on, it could take a bit longer. 

Rest assured tho, it's coming soon. 

Last night I posted some concept art from our next project after 'RDP: Bittersweet' - a parody of Hasbro's 'Equestria Girls' - 'Equestria Primates'. Some of you noticed that I referred to it as our finale. Allow me to clarify. 

'Equestria Primates' is going to be our planned last pony related animation (which means, yes, 'RDP: Bittersweet' is the last RDP). Both Greg and I are transitioning into new stages in our lives. Greg is going to be married soon and plans on starting a family, and I'm moving to Vancouver to start working full-time for Monstercat. We're both entering phases in which releasing massive animated videos is no longer feasible. So instead of simply burning out over the course of the next few years, we're putting our all into one big last hurrah! A grand finale!

And this finale will certainly be grand. In fact, it'll pro'lly take so long to finish it'll pro'lly be a year and half before all the parts are done. 

Allow me to explain. 'Equestria Primates' is going to be a 3 part finale (I'm going to refer to each part as books tho, you'll see why). The first "book" will be length of a regular RDP - it'll set-up the plot et al. The second "book" will be divided up into 6 shorts (chapters) each focusing on one of the main 6 in the alternate world. The final "book" will conclude everything, wrap everything up in a little bow, and give each character a (hopefully) satisfying conclusion. All-together, the finale should end up being about the length of a full-length movie. Each part will be released when they are done so that you all aren't waiting forever for the finished thing in it's entirety - also so we can torture you with cliffhangers.

I'm really excited for this finale. Greg and I were discussing plot details yesterday, and I'm anxious to get started! In the meantime, be excited about the new RDP coming soon!


Edit: Also, in case you forgot, I created the alternate monkey character designs for the main 6 a long time ago:…

Looks like I'll be letting go of my hopes for the rest of season 1 in MAS-style. I'm bit melancholy now, knowing this era is coming to an end. I'll be looking forward to your last "Hurrah!" I know you'll do us all proud! 07

I'm going to miss RDP, but I can certainly respect the reasons why it's ending.  Thanks for providing us with all you've done.  I look forward to seeing Equestria Primates.  Good luck in Vancouver!

I understand that you're moving on but I know I speak for all of us when I say that we're going to miss RDP. I wish you a good future and happiness. Thank you so much for helping make us smile and laugh.

Reading Bittersweet when it first went up on EqD makes me that much more excited about this.

Sorry to see the end of RPD (great series) but nothing really lasts forever. All good things must come to an end. Good luck with Monstercat.

Oh my, even if I'm feeling terribly sad because RDP is gonna be over, I can't but feel glad for you two. Nothing is forever hehe and I can't stop saying that you have done an amazing job with all that universe you've made, I will miss it sooo much. I love all the new character you made out of the Mane 6.

Best of luck for you in your projects! and Thanks a lot for give us such awesome series!
