#552: Screen Play

January 21, 2011

Notes from the Manager

In real life, apparently the Multiplex 10 would probably get in a little trouble for this, if the NFL found out.

In case you pay even less attention to American football than I do, the Chicago Bears defied everybody's expectations by making it to the NFC Championships — and they're playing against their long-time rivals, the Green Bay Packers.

Look, my old high school chums used to ask me sports trivia and then bet on whether or not I would know the answer, because I pay absolutely no attention to sports. (They called the game "What Does Gordon Know?") And yet I'm getting kind of excited about this game. That means it's a big deal.

And… one last time: for those of you in the Chicago area, I'll see you tomorrow (Saturday, 1/22) at Chicago Comics, because I'll be appearing with Justin Pierce (Wonderella). Check out the flier for it over at Deleted Scenes for the full details.

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!
