Well, it’s finally happened. Even though our channel is very careful about the music we use, a big record label has stepped in and bullied YouTube into threatening to delete Beat Down Boogie and all our videos. The kicker – we had multiple written permissions to use the music in question.
Despite that permission, The Orchard (aka The Orchard Music Group) filed a claim against our Really Really Long Dragon*Con 2011 Video. Don’t go looking for it – Youtube deleted … Read the rest
Several fans of Mario Warfare have asked us about our production schedule for upcoming Mario Warfare episodes. I wanted to take a second to share our insight on the film-making process. It’s a long process filled with lots of effort. Even for Hollywood films with a 100 million dollars, and 100′s of crew members working full time, it can take years to finish a film. We have like, 3 crew and work around our day jobs, lol. Here’s what we’ve … Read the rest
We just wanted to let everyone know that progress is being made on future episodes of Mario Warfare. Pre-production has been done, props have been built, costumes ordered, fights choreographed and filming has begun. March 2013 has seen much progress on Mario Warfare episode 3, 4 and 5. … Read the rest
In early March, we were gearing up for the first outdoor action shoot of Mario Warfare when we realized it was going to rain and snow all weekend. A few of my friends were headed up to Katsucon (an anime / media convention near Washington DC) so Brian (Toad) and I decided to check it out. I’m glad we did, because it’s a pretty fun con!
The location and host hotel are very scenic, as seen in this photo by … Read the rest

Just wanted to take a moment to thank the websites that shared Mario Warfare. We are humbled and extremely grateful that so many have taken the time to write an article about us, post our videos on their websites or blogs or simply share our videos with their audiences on Facebook. It’s always interesting to see where our videos end up. Below are just a few of the places that Mario Warfare ended up making appearances.… Read the rest
For anyone wondering about the status of Mario Warfare, it’s still in the works. Early on we ran into some significant scheduling conflicts. Some of our cast and crew have had big life changes – new careers, marriage, girlfriends, moving, etc. We’ve also run into big technical problems like our computer getting fried by a lighting storm.
When we began Mario Warfare, we didn’t take into account how much everyone’s new lifestyles and locations would affect scheduling. We weren’t able … Read the rest
Recently our stuntman pal Emmanuel Manzanares from the film group LBP visited from Chicago. Whenever our friends from LBP or The Stunt People pass through, we always jump at the chance to learn from them.
This was a fun one-day shoot, and Brian Lee learned how to fall on stairs from Manny. Hopefully we’ll be able to team up with him again in the near future!… Read the rest
We recently went to Las Vegas (thanks to Foxfury Lighting Solutions). This was Matt and Brian’s first trip to Las Vegas, and Micah couldn’t wait to show them the sights. Here’s some of the things we did!
We invoked Elvis Law!
OK, Elvis Law is something Micah made up. But basically he convinced Brian and Matt that everyone dresses like Elvis in Las Vegas. Who are they to question The King of Rock n Roll?
Once the BDB Elvises … Read the rest
