#481: Splice of Life, Part Four

June 16, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #414: A Long Time Coming, Part Three; #456: The Best Laid Plans, Part Three; #475: Average White Band, Part Three

There will be three updates this week — and, like I did on Monday, you can read Friday's comic early by voting at TopWebComics. So vote! Please!

By the way, if you're going to see Toy Story 3 this weekend, you can pre-order tickets via Fandango without a service fee when you use a Visa card to buy your tickets.. (Disclosure: I am a Fandango affiliate, and I will make a whopping 10¢ from each ticket you purchase via this link, or the one in the right sidebar on the homepage.)

I saw Toy Story 3 at an advanced screening on Monday night, and it was fantastic — a really fun adventure that beautifully ends(?) the series. The use of 3D is really good, but subtle enough that I don't think you'll be missing much if you forego the surcharge. And the short before it, "Night and Day," is one of Pixar's best.

I still think How to Train Your Dragon will get the Best Animated Feature Oscar this year, though. ;)

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… although, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
