Hey guys Pete here,
Wow! What a year it has been for the site and for me personally. If you have been following everything we have done this year you will know that I have struggled a few times during production. Well I made it to the end of the year and I am now coming to the end of a two month production break and it's just what I needed.
During my break I have been making plans for season 15, using what we have learned from this season we hope you are all looking forward to the next season of the show.
Season 14 brought a massive change and challenge to the show. The Gunge tank finally arrived. Many thought it would not happen and even we thought it might not happen too. With the help of Ash (download his latest show here) we was able to get the tank ready for the launch of season 14. The thing was, shooting with the Gunge Tank turned the whole production of the shoots upside down. We had this massive thing, it took ages to put up and filling the tank with gunge was a new challenge. This was no inflatable pool. So when time came to shoot our first season 14 show with Simon I basically had to learn on the go.
When we first released the first season 14 shows with the tank, it made all the hard work to get the tank ready and work out how to shoot with the tank worth while. This year we have received more positive feedback regarding the shows than we have done so since season 2. It kind of made the hell of clean up almost worthwhile, almost!
This year we tried to get more new faces on the show and the ones we persuaded to come on were fantastic. The new ones that took up our offer were great to work with. I want to take this opportunity to thank all our new models who I have worked with this year for giving us a chance and coming on the show. It was a pleasure to work with you all and I hope to work with you all again in the future.
OUR BIGGEST THANK YOU is to our fans. We can only produce new shows because you guys buy the shows and support us. We are here because of you. It really is as simple as that. It's no secret anymore that the shows are expensive to produce so when we get a sale from you we are incredibly grateful. I can't wait to see where we go next season and I hope you will continue to support us. We do what we do because of the support.
Thank you to viewers and fans who have taken part in private shoots this year. It was a great pleasure to meet many of you and make your dreams come true! I hope to meet many more of you in the Gunge Tank next year.
A special thank you, I want to thank Jon. Jon has a great run with Splat! over the past few years and I want to thank him for being one of the best models I have ever had to pleasure to work with. He does everything that I would ask and he has been able to save a few shoots from disaster this season. Thank you Jon, season 14 was your season and I know many fans still enjoy your content. Thank you Jon!
Finally, I want to wish all our fans and viewers a very Merry Christmas and great new year. See you next year for season 15 (and our fantastic season 14 finale with Simon. It's a classic!)
