#369: Michael Bay’s Inferno

June 25, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Panel 3 refers to one of the bonus strips found in the first and as-yet-only Multiplex eBook (page 3, specifically), although Jason has undoubtedly said it many other times. Hopefully the second eBook will actually get done sometime this year, and then the next ones (followed by the print collection) won't be too far behind.

As for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (a.k.a. Transformers 2), I haven't seen it yet. And, with as dull as I felt the first one was,* I would happily not see this one, either, except that I have to, for The Triple Feature. sigh

* Brainless and loud I can handle if the action is good, but I don't even think Michael Bay could direct a good action scene to save his life — and yet so, so many of you seem to disagree.

UPDATE (6/26): Hey, everybody! I will be at Think Galacticon 2009 this Sunday at 10:30am, on the "Anarchism and the Superhero" panel (weird, I know) moderated by Terry Gant of Chicago's very own Third Coast Comics along with All Things Dork's Jeffrey Smith and noir/SF writer Michael Moreci.

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!
