#542: Sequelly Abused

December 27, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #27: Merry Christmas from Multiplex; #103: Deck the Halls with Déjà Vu; #311: Exactly Like the Holidays

On a mostly unrelated note, The Weinstein Company is "developing" a sequel to Bad Santa. Okay, it's my favorite Christmas movie ever and all, but… really? (Also on their list of "properties" to enfranchise: Rounders and Shakespeare in Love.)

By the way, I did a guest strip for Shortpacked! (To any new readers from Shortpacked!: please start from the beginning. The comic makes way more sense that way. Don't feel intimidated by all the movie chatter; Multiplex is about movies in the same way Shortpacked! is about toys — which is to say, you don't need to be a big nerd about 'em to enjoy the comic. Or, at least, I'm not into toys, but I love Shortpacked!, so I don't think you do.)

I've had a few promised guest strips go up in smoke, so anyone interested in doing one — or writing a script for one — please drop me a line for the rules and regulations! I will be drawing (by hand) the best script that gets sent to me in the VERY near future, sometime later this week. As an added bonus, if I draw your script, I'll send you the original art!

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!
