#321: It’s How We Always Do It

If you're confused right now and panel 7 didn't make it clear enough: yes, Jason can read.

Here's a little more detail on the Veronica Mars movie that might be happening. Strong emphasis on might.

By the way, if you missed Monday night's Triple Feature (#107), I was remiss in not promoting it, but Joe, Tom and myself went through our "Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2008." You can listen to our commentary about our lists and the films in the extra-long edition of the podcast, but here was my list:

  1. The Wrestler
  2. WALL•E
  3. In Bruges
  4. Milk
  5. Man on Wire
  6. Iron Man / Incredible Hulk (tie, and yes, I know I was cheating)
  7. Kung Fu Panda
  8. JCVD
  9. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  10. Son of Rambow

Runners Up: The Dark Knight; Slumdog Millionaire; Let the Right One In; The Counterfeiters; Synecdoche, NY

Before any of you get all mad and yell at me for not including __________ in my list, it's my opinion, and I know my taste is a little peculiar. There's a reason we call them "our favorite movies of 2008," not "the best movies of 2008." So nyeah.

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!
