Woohoo! It’s getting close! Check out the trailer for Beat Down Boogie’s MARIO WARFARE series!
Woot! Woot! The men of Mario Warfare and Modern War Gear Solid are headed to Magfest the first weekend in January. We’ve never been before, but we hear it’s nonstop gaming (which Matt Sumner likes), nonstop music (which Micah Moore likes), and nonstop drinking (looking at you Brian Lee). We’ll be partying it up and even showing our movies! If you’re at Magfest and want to catch Mario Warfare (or Modern War Gear Solid on the big screen), catch us … Read the rest

Big thanks to The Superhero Costuming Forum, Distractotron Channel, and Nerd Reactor for helping us get footage this year.… Read the rest
As I make my way back home, I am pleasantly reflecting on my yearly trip to Atlanta. Dragon*Con is a time when the imaginations of thousands of people coalesce from the ether and are given physical form.

Our blog experienced a couple months of radio silence. We were focused 100% on finishing Episodes 1 and 2 of Mario Warfare. Now that those are in the bag, we’ve finally given the site an overdue redesign. The biggest changes are the removal of features and pages we just didn’t use. For one, there’s no longer a store for merchandise. We really appreciate everyone who bought DVD’s and T-shirts. But with our small crew, it was too difficult to run … Read the rest
After running into early troubles on Mario Warfare, director Micah Moore shares the trials and tribulations of making this series.
For us, screen fights are the most fun we have as filmmakers. We’ve been thinking a lot about the fights in Mario Warfare. For some fights we want to riff on the action movies that we love. For other fights we want to delve into our own creativity. Above all else, we want to push ourselves a little further to try stunts and weapons that we’ve never used before. In the world of Mario Warfare, we’ll be using a lot … Read the rest
We’re hard at work on Mario Warfare! We’ve been making costumes and assembling our collection of props. We owe a huge thanks to www.ehobbyasia.com for helping us arm our characters with airsoft guns. If you’re interested in high-quality realistic prop weapons or airsoft, check them out. They’re an HK company that we’ve shopped with for a long time. The shipping can be pricey, but it’s really fast, and we end up saving money overall with their warhouse prices.… Read the rest
The merch store is closed. So if you got a Modern War Gear Solid DVD, it’s now limited edition. I doubt that makes it more valuable, but it does make it rare. There’s probably about 500 in existence. Since we don’t offer DVD’s anymore, we did want to make sure the world could still watch the final director’s cut of Modern War Gear Solid. I feel it’s a real good watch as a singular uncut experience.… Read the rest
Are you a fan of Snake and Ghost? Instead of listening to Snake’s grizzled voice and Ghost’s seductive accent, you can now listen to the geeks behind the series prattling on about it.
This commentary was originally only available on the Modern War Gear Solid DVD, but since we no longer have a store – we though we should share it with the world! Well…with a tiny fraction of the world! Cheers!… Read the rest
For those of you who’ve been with us since Modern War Gear Solid, you know there was a big gap between MWGS episode 2 and 3. At the time, we didn’t even know we’d be making a 3rd, 4th, and 5th installment. But the audience wanted to see what became of Snake and Ghost, and we did too. In the downtime of writing the last 3 episodes, Snake and Ghost got bored and infiltrated the internet. They snuck into videos … 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
