Announcement regarding Traeger at The Movies

Hi folks. This is just an update to let you know some changes that are being made to our AWARD-WINNING* YouTube show “Traeger at The Movies. Basically, it’s about to get an overhaul.

When we first started TATM, I wanted to commit to a weekly format. I thought this would help me be consistent with the upkeep of the show as well as give me a gimmick to start with (movies are released weekly! So is this show! OH HI MR. PRESIDENT OF HOLLYWOOD! YES I KNOW IT’S PERFECT LOGIC! YOU CAN JUST LEAVE THAT BAG OF MONEY BY THE DOOR!) Alongside the weekly format, I had also promised extra videos & more written content. Unfortunately, the weekly format has taken quite a bit of our time. Shooting, editing, uploading, promoting…it all takes a while. Me & my partner also have full-time jobs that take up most of our days. Because of this, anything besides the show itself has fallen by the wayside. I’m not happy about this. I don’t like breaking promises.

So here’s what’s gonna happen: we’re done with the weekly format. It was a good run (25 episodes!) & I’m VERY proud of the work that we’ve done with the show. Damn proud, in fact. That being said, I feel like we’ve done everything we can with that format & it’s time to move on & try some new things.

Instead, we’re switching to a more loose, sorta-monthly format. Also, the focus will be shifting. Instead of giving you a rundown of new releases, we’re gonna be doing one of the following:

-Rundown of the month’s notable releases at the end of the month, along with my thoughts on those movies.

-Discussion videos: In which I pick an idea/subject/etc related to movies & dig into it, possibly featuring guests to join me on camera.

-Oscar predictions: We’re entering Oscar season. I’ll be doing several videos talking about Oscar hopefuls, making predictions (most of them wrong), & overall just participating in the festivities.

In addition to all of this, you’ll be seeing more writing from me. In fact, I’m working on a review for a Bad Milo that should be up soon! So look out for that!

IN SUMMATION: I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who’s supported us & TATM. It means the world, trust me. We’re basically just two people with a semi-functional iPhone & a big ol’ dumb idea we thought we’d shoot for. Y’all’s support has been mind blowing & I can’t thank you guys enough! 

Here’s to change.
