#481: Splice of Life, Part Four

Notes from the Manager

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. ;)

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!
