#660: Calling the Shots, Part Three

Welcome back. If you stopped by yesterday, you know that I had a little redirect going on, blacking out the site in protest of SOPA and PIPA.

And, as you can see, we've got another pencils-only post. I'm afraid this will likely continue for a few more updates. I'll post the inked and toned strips as I can get through them and hopefully get caught up soon.

But I've been more than a little swamped between a few freelance projects all hitting the fan this week and into next, and so that's what's up. Bills come first, and unfortunately, Multiplex doesn't pay them.

UPDATE (1/22): Got sidelined by a freelance project that I can't tell you about just yet, Multiplex #661 won't be up until Monday afternoon, I'm afraid — but it's a comic strip! For a very cool website! So hey, that's good, right?

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!
