#313: Too Much to Ask?

December 29, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #312: The Reader

I didn't post the over-the-weekend update that I'd planned (sorry), so here that is, and there will be two more strips this week — on Wednesday and Friday — although Wednesday's will finish off this scene with Becky, Jay and Jason. See you soon.

The Triple Feature is taking a break this week, so we can catch up on all of the movies for a gala End of 2008 show the following week (…yes, in 2009). Movie buffs like myself, Tom, and Joe always have a heck of a time trying to watch as many of the end-of-year releases as possible, especially with so many awards contenders coming out in the last two weeks of December every year. So far in my own end-of-year movie marathon, the highlights have been The Wrestler (out now in a good chunk of the country), and two documentaries, Man on Wire and Up the Yangtze (both out now on DVD).

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
