#853: Apparatus Theory

October 18, 2013

Technically apparatus theory is derived from psychoanalytic film theory or something like that, but anyway, apparatus theory was one of the dominant approaches to film theory in the 1970’s, though it has since been fallen out of favor. A lot of it has to do with the phallus and castration, and I’m not even making this shit up.

(I’m taking a Moving Images Media Studies class right now. It’s working its way into the strip, apparently.)

Come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia (June 2–4 only)

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Hello! If you’re in the area, come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia with Phil Kahn of Guilded Age. We’ll be at Booth 1702. NOTE: I will only be there from June 2–4. No Thursday preview for me.

(Here’s a floor plan for your planning pleasure.)

If you use the coupon code GUILDED, you can get 20% off your advanced ticket orders.

I will have copies of the brand-spankin’-new, not-even-officially-released Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) in tow, draw sketches (for monies), and if my iPad has any juice in it, I’ll show you some behind the scenes stuff from the Multiplex 10 short, too.
