The Train’s at the Station

This is addressed to the people that actually are reading this right now. Yes, this is addressed to you.

First of all, thank you for reading. Know that you are one of the few that actually pay attention to this site and our works, for that we are grateful.

Second of all, we are stepping away from SilverWolfPet. As the title suggests, the “train” of articles and clips and updates will stay at the station for a bit until we will carry on the journey. We are not leaving permanently, we are just announcing an indefinite hiatus.

Why?

There is no way of saying this without sounding weird, or even egocentric and full of ourselves… so we’re just gonna say it directly – without proper feedback (be it positive, negative or constructive) we are not capable of functioning. We cannot know if we’re going in the right direction, we cannot guess if you guys like what we do, if you hate what we do…

The general passiveness of our audience killed every bit of enthusiasm that we might’ve had left. Very, very few people replied to our questions and actually took the time to communicate with us. It is thanks to those very few (you know who you are) that we managed to keep it up for years.

Sadly, even after posting day by day, trying to offer diverse content and making things fun and interesting, we cannot keep it up when we see that people are leaving. It can really be heartbreaking when you try to bring something new and realize that you gained 2 new watchers and lost 7 in the process. We seem to be on a continuous drop and the worst part here is that everyone is silent.

What about *insert project names here*?

As always, we are continuing to work on Plustard. We’ll stop announcing updates. Most likely the next time you’ll hear about the project is when we will launch Season 1 in its entirety.

We have prepared a secret side-thing, a mini-tribute for this Xmas, not sure if we’re gonna make it though due to lack of funds.

The Doctor Who Tribute #2 will be discussed in 2017. Everything else is up for discussion.

When will you be back?

We don’t know. It could be two weeks, it could be two years. Or more. Or less.

We want to focus our energy into filmmaking and nothing else. The reason why it is taking so much, as we reiterated several times, has everything to do with the lack of funds and the lack of time.

Thank you for being with us so far. Let’s hope we’ll talk again soon.

    Oh, please don’t go! I’m sure there are lots of fans like me that adore you but don’t comment because they don’t have the guts to do. I’ve never commented anything on any side, not even Thimbleweed Park(TM), because I think
    my english is too bad or they won’t be interested in what I think. But I really love your stuff!
    You guys are awesome. I think it’s okay if you stop posting stuff because you don’t have time, but please don’t let
    perturb you. I mean your movies are absolutely pretty darn awesome! Keep being epic! I live you guys.

    Sorry, actually I meant “Keep being epic! I love you guys.” When I’m emotionally involved in something, I always type like a rubber chicken. Yeah, I’m emotionally involved because it’s serious! I am a fan!!!! And I’m sure others too. Ur so awesome, dont desperate. I love you.

      Hey 🙂

      Thank you for the kind words. Due to the financial situation in our country, we are kind of forced to do this. If SWP would have had a moderate success – like people spreading the word, us having multiple collaborations – we would’ve been able to develop it further (perhaps even make it an official company).

      We have to seek secure means of putting food on the table. We’re not giving it up, we’re just stepping away from it until we’re able to support ourselves.

      Thank you. Big hugs!

        Thank you for your nice reply, it’s cool that you took the time.
        Wow, this is sad. It really makes me angry to see that creative and epic people just can’t continue their works because of MONEY. This world really sucks. You’re not the first case in which that or similar stuff happens, and you won’t be the last. This is so bad!
        Sorry, actually I wanted to cheer you up, but I barely can do that for myself. Just look at what Javier writes. And similar stories, just not as dramatic and deep, have happened to everyone. Pieces of art that help you to solve the furshlugginer quests of this world – just like you wrote in an article recently. It is sad, because you belong to the most creative people I’ve ever known or even heard of, but what can we do against it? I can’t donate because I barely can pay the nescessaries for myself, but these guys who are rich: Please, donate to Wolfy and his crew. They are worth it.
        Hey, maybe we could found an anticapitalistical terror group (:

    Maybe there is a problem with the “publicity” ? Maybe you have not promoted yourself … well enough ?
    It is sad that you want to gather some absences into the book ( note that will not be motivated 😛 ) .

    I don`t know …. but leaving it is not always the best choice ;).
    And to quote “Sorry, can’t tell you my real name but I love you ” …. Keep being EPIC !!

    Just in case you leave, i wanna tell you something. You really helped me to get over a hard life crisis and id like to thank you. my daughter tried to kill herself and my wife left us because she couldnt stand it. i cried every day and my boss started complaining because i couldnt offer my full potential of work. in the end he fired me. sorry im telling this im a little ego… but i wanna tellit cos then i watched plustard. of course i still felt bad and all that, and all the things had happened a half year or so ago, but plustard really helped me. of course because of Johnnys always-happy-style of life, but also because of the way it is its own world if you know what I mean. It IS realistic but its different from other movies in the way of its abstraction. and that really evolved me (can you say that? sorry, i didnt learn english at school).
    Sorry, no one gets what im trying to say, right?
    But the main thing is:
    THANK YOU!

      Hi Javier,

      I honestly don’t know what to say, since I never thought Plustard would have such a meaningful impact on anyone. What you went through, and survived through, is unimaginable to many people. I feel admiration towards you and the fact that you kept going, doing your best to remain sane and get over such a difficult, unfair period of your life.

      Hope is a frail thing in most people. I am happy that you kept your Hope and I wish for you to receive only good things in your life from now on. Your words touched me, and my brother, and we both will pray for you and your daughter to have a peaceful and happy life.

      I always thought that if our movies could change even one person’s life for the better, it means it was all worth it. Thank you for sharing your story with me. If things will get tough, your words will pull us through and help us keep going. So we thank you… and when we will return (and we will), know that before we press that “record” button on our camera, our thoughts will go to your family.

      May you and your loved ones be safe, healthy and happy, my friend.
      THANK YOU!

    Hey,
    I’m really a fan of yours, but I haven’t commented your atricles because… well, I would have had to tell you my email address and… my parents control my email account and since our car was stolen by Romanians, my father hates every single Romanian in the entire world. Yeah, that doesn’t make any sense, but he thinks like that. So, I thought, if I tell you my email address and you answer, he might get angry because I’m a fan of some Romanians. The email address I use to post this comment is a fake… sorry.
    I guess there are more fans like me that love you bt don’t comment because of that email address thing. I mean, you wrote that in ‘Survey Results´: A lot of your fans are children.
    I just wrote these lines to say: Don’t be sad, I’m sure you have many fans that just don’t comment s (see also Sorry, can’t tell you my real name but I love you )
    Hey guys…
    you are AWESOME.

    Hey, I just met you (AND THIS IS CRAAAAZY… Hm. Sorry.) on CSGO !
    Just thought it would be good to let you know that I actually came on your website and I really enjoyed the videos I watched.

    As a french person, the inspector Plustard is obviously my favorite 😉
    Can’t wait for the Sherlock one ! 😀

    Keep doing what you’re doing, that’s really good. And thank you for being nice people on CSGO, we really miss nice people !

          Yup! Something quite big. Can’t say what it is right now, but we’re working our butts off to launch it by the end of December.

          • Wolfy Says: January 30, 2017 15:46

            I think so, yes.
            We wanted to make it a bit bigger before talking about it on the site… but… here it is: https://www.youtube.com/c/wolfbrotherscinema

            We’re posting one video per day now. 🙂 Going with YouTube all the way to victory and beyond! By all means, please enjoy. Watch the clips in order, hope you like them!
            And check daily for new ones, we really do update daily!

    Cool! Thank you for updating me. This is awesome! Keep going!
    PS: Nice Dalek and Day of the Tentacle blueprints in the first video! Where did you get them?

      Uuuu, you recognized the DOTT blueprints? Nice! 😀
      We just printed them out, found them online. ^^ I know you like to keep your identity/email safe, but if you wanna ask Kauff a question, please do so. It’s fun!
      Or you can ask stuff in the vlogs so I can answer them personally.

    I think it’s a really cool idea to go into (nearly-) direct dialogue with the audience. I generally like your new way.
    I know it’s hard to actually follow through on something one has planned. So here are my compliments. Now I’ve written “I” at the beginning of a sentence thrice. That might seem egocentric…
    I don’t have a youtube account so I can’t ask stuff there, but I’ve got 2 questions to you. It would be really cool if you could answer them but I would understand if you wouldn’t since this is not your youtube site.
    1. Do you think a war is gonna break out in Europe in the next 50 years?
    2. What’s your favourite Star Trek (Original Series, TNG, DS9 or Voy.)?
    Thank you, keep being epic and have success with your new format!

    Thank you!
    I also think TNG is the best as it’s the philosophically most interesting.
    Thank you for answering it despite the fact that this is not your YT site.
    You’re so considerate with your fans, that’s pretty cool. Most filmmakers aren’t. Thank you!
