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
We recently tested some Foxfury lights on a film project and as thanks, FoxFury invited us to check out the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. We were a bit nervous. This was the real deal. Real steel. Real pros walking around. And our goofy faces. Luckily, everyone was super nice and welcomed our touch of humor at the show. Here’s what we did:
We learned how much ass a one-legged man can kick.
Snake’s new best friend is Rob, … Read the rest

Greensboro, NC has 3 big bar crawls during the year – PirateCon, BunnyCon, and SantaCon. We heard about these wild nights and finally got a chance to check one out. Ghost went as Tactical Santa. Snake lost a bet and had to wear a girl’s Santa shirt from Walmart. But Santa gave Snake his one wish list item – a new box!
You may know that the CBS-produced program, Inside Edition, used our DragonCon 2010 video WITHOUT PERMISSION in a story about an unrelated criminal investigation. We took offense to having our video twisted into a misleading portrayal of our community as deviants and criminals. People are understandably upset that Inside Edition chose to steal an unrelated video featuring their faces and attach it to a criminal investigation story. Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received:
“I hate to be a prick, … Read the rest
We’ve been getting messages from people featured in our DragonCon 2010 video that recently saw themselves in a missing persons story on Inside Edition. Or even worse, their family saw them and were alarmed.
Just to be clear:
WE NEVER GAVE INSIDE EDITION PERMISSION TO USE OUR VIDEO!!!
INSIDE EDITION IS UNLAWFULLY AND UNETHICALLY INFRINGING ON OUR COPYRIGHTS!
Inside Edition ran a story about a missing girl and her suspicious ex-fiance. That sounds like a news story, but Inside … Read the rest
Cardboard Gear was built upon an older costume called Unit 01. The costume consisted of motocross armor, football pads, and a bumblebee helmet, all painted black.
To create Cardboard Gear, we duct-taped and glued cardboard all over Unit 01.
If you want to create an identical Cardboard Gear, here’s what you’ll need:
1. Transformers Bumblebee Helmet
2. Motocross Armor
(This is the same motocross jacket we used … Read the rest
