Notes from the Manager
In case you haven't seen it yet, here is the trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (yes, it's supposed to be spelled that way).
If you haven't been around since Thursday or didn't read the Notes from the Manager last week, you missed an update on Friday. You also missed the grand opening of the brand-spankin' new Multiplex Store, featuring two kick-ass T-shirt designs and the slightly updated, lower-priced downloadable version of the Multiplex: Chapter 1 ebook. (Yes, #2 is still coming!)
Buy stuff now and support your favorite movie theater-themed comic that's actually updated in the past four years! :)
(As I mentioned last week, if you have already purchased a copy of the earlier HD edition of the Multiplex eBook, drop me a line and I'll give you coupon codes for a free upgrade to the new edition, as well as a small discount any anything else in the store.)
All purchases come with a free (random-ish) 1" button and my eternal gratitude.
If you own a shop of some sort and would like to sell them, bulk discounts can be arranged, as well!
And if you don't see anything you like, drop me a line and tell me what you would like to see in the Multiplex Store!
Multiplex News & Updates
Bonus comics, drawings, and
other awesome stuff
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!
