#570: High Art

March 14, 2011

Notes from the Manager

David Gordon Green made All the Real Girls (which I absolutely love) and George Washington (which I'm not all the crazy about, actually, but was well directed) — and he also made Pineapple Express and now Your Highness, which are a bit… less highbrow, to say the least. He also directed some episodes of the Danny McBride HBO series Eastbound & Down.

The bit about Green wanting to remake Suspiria is true, as well, of course, although the last I've heard of it was last year.

Check out the trailer for All the Real Girls over at YouTube, and watch Your Highness's red band trailer below:

Head over to Coming Soon for the other trailers and TV spots for Your Highness, and let me know what you think! Is there a more varied director working in film today?

UPDATE: I did a guest strip for the lovely and talented Joel Watson's HijiNKS ENSUE. Joel is a true mensch — one of the coolest people I've met in all my webcomic-related travails (we shared a table at C2E2 last year, don'tchaknow?), and his comic is frakking hilarious. You should definitely check it out — and that goes double if you're a sci-fi nerd.

UPDATE 2: Thursday's strip is running late, sorry! It will post sometime during the day on Thursday.

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
