It has been a long time coming. This week I announced that I was opening the doors to a brand new Production Company named Spazbot Studios. In many ways the seeds for Spazbot Studios were sewn right here on this blog and podcast. This is where I started to form the idea, this blog and podcast in many ways have been my creative home for well over a year now.
However, what I wanted to do creatively could not be done here at Manifesto. Manifesto was too specific, too personal of a project to appeal to a broader audience. So, I have been working for the past three months to create this new Production Company which will serve as a banner for all my future content creation projects. The result of that work is Spazbot Studios.
So, where does that leave Montgomery Manifesto as a blog and podcast? A redesign for the site is definitely in the works. Lots of back end things you will not see until you see a NEW site. So, stay tuned for that. As for the Podcast, we are re-evaluating it. The show had a major thematic shift back in September of 2013. We want to keep going with that shift. Therefore a Re-Boot is in the works.
I want to invite you to check out Spazbot Studios today! Check out all the cool stuff there, and you can also follow theSpazbot on Twitter!More to come. This is only the beginning.
At only 15 seconds, you can only call this a teaser, but it is exciting to finally see some of the characters brought to life onscreen albeit briefly. We do not get any shots of Thanos or The Collector or Ronin. Perhaps those will be saved for the BIG trailer, whenever that releases. I will say with every bit of something that comes out, I get more and more excited about this movie.
The only other Major Pop Culture TV Phenomenon going that could rival Walking Dead for popularity is Game of Thrones. G.R.R. Martin’s Swords and Dragons epic fires up Season 4 on April 4th! And the producers are already promising, “Bloody Confrontations!”
Well, it’s about DAMN time. After publicity stunts, interviews, and general nerd squee overload Walking Dead returned for the BACK half of Season 4 this past Sunday! So, we all gleefully tuned in to find out what happened to our Merry… err… Bleak Band of Zombie Apocalypse Survivors after the destruction of the prison. Before I begin! Please, check out our NEW WALKING DEAD PODCAST, DEAD FANS TALKING! Episode 1 and 2 are already up, and we will be recording Episode 3 this week, which should be out Wednesday, 2/12, 2014! Now on to the good stuff!
***Warning, thar be Spoilers ahead!***
“Good Stuff by Good People”.
The following phrase will make more sense soon enough. While many colleagues know what is happening, I cannot completely share the details on what I am working on behind the scenes. But I hope you all enjoy it once it is up and running 100%. It is more than a single show or a single project. In many ways, it is a bit of a culmination of my journey creatively up until this point, but also it is very much a beginning.
It is difficult NOT to spill the beans, NOT to reveal what is going on, because it really deserves its own big debut, and you deserve it to be ready, when it does in fact debut. But I am inherently impatient when it comes to this kind of stuff. I get excited an I want to share that with you, but in the end… where would be the magic?
It’s been tough adjusting to this slow pace of building. I am more used to blogging. Sit down, write for 5 minutes, edit for one minute, publish. Done. I think twitter broke us creatively. It became to easy to Broadcast! I forgot that it takes work to make something good. But in the end, it’s definitely worth it! Stay tuned, we are getting close.
Oh Karen Gillan, why are you eating a light bulb? Well, I don’t know much, but judging by this trailer, I think it has something to do with a magically haunted mirror! You be the judge by checking out after the jump!
Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally hitting a bit of a stride. I’ll be honest. I love Clark Gregg, but the rest of that cast been… um… crap. But never the less, they have strung together a pretty good run of episodes. Mostly, because they’ve been tweaking our obscure fan boy fantasies with some nice off the shelf comic book characters (I saw you Blizzard1). But one super popular choice from the 90′s is about to hit the show.
