It is here. After months of the viewers waiting and a long time spent in the editing room battling with an aging system, the all new series wide trailer has finally arrived. In it, Barton Police fans get to see the first ever glimpse of Episode 9 – The Takedown, available only on the upcoming Barton Police DVD. The trailer has it all: funny moments, gun battles, the Milkman, and more. The purpose of creating this main trailer was to provide a way to broadly cover the main story arch of the online series to give potential new fans the chance to experience a taste of the show without having to watch even one entire episode.
We believe we succeeded in that goal. The special effects titles (example: “The Police Department of Barton County…”) put such a strain on the computer’s RAM load that the frames of each title had to be exported by only 2 or 3 at a time in some instances from Adobe After Effects. The frames were then combined, the way old fashioned animation is often done, into one animation and placed into the trailer. The trailer went through three different cuts, the 3rd cut being the final one.
With the trailer out of the way, there is only one more thing to wait for: the release of the DVD. Oh, and the launch of the all new website design, both of which will be coming soon. Stay tuned and enjoy the trailer!
A new website design for BartonPolice.com is happening very soon. Until then, we got tired of looking at the shameful outdated site and decided to go ahead and post all of the videos up so that people can at least come here to view them. Simply check the episodes out from the top menu under: Watch the Episodes. A drop down menu should appear with all eight of the currently viewable episodes. Also, see the below news post made regarding the release of the DVD as well as the Episode 9 finale.
The Barton Police cast and crew have, to some degree, gone their separate ways following the completion of the show. However, you can check out the new project under works by some of the cast here: DollFactoryMovie.com. Doll Factory is a new project under works by the same company that has produced Barton Police, Barton Ct. Productions Inc. Doll Factory will be directed by Stephen Wolfe, the same director behind Barton Police, and will feature cast members Justin Herman (AJ Jenkins), Chester Smith (Bob Riley, Lenard Biggs, Old Man Earl), Scott Lee (Producer of Barton Police, Commissioner Preston Leebo), Tabitha Fuller (Alicia Beck), Mitchell Ganey (Bill O’Hara) and Xavier Flores (Alex Ramirez). Also see the information on BartonCT.com about donating to Doll Factory to get the project started!
