Hey everyone, BearShark the Game was released today on Nintendo 3DS!
We made a videogame! And by “made,” I mean we “gave annoying, distracting writer-y notes asking for dozens of unnecessary features that were mildly funny and technologically impossible while Silverball Studios worked their asses off making” a videogame!
Available now on the Nintendo 3DS eShop!
Comedy website Splitsider just launched a new digital distribution label ‘Splitsider Presents’ and their first release is the hilarious feature film ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project.’ Available for $5 over at their website.
Director Ben Popik gathered together his former comrades from the legendary sketch group Olde English and tasked them with writing a movie. The catch: each of the five writers wrote 15 pages and only saw the previous five pages of the script. He then shot the movie they wrote, as well as documentary footage of the writing process and all the drama that it entailed, and put them all together into a unique comedy.
I had an opportunity to see the move last night and it is really something special. Besides being extremely funny and charming, it speaks volumes about the creative process, collaboration and friendship. The way the documentary aspect mirrors the narrative they wrote is fascinating. The film becomes much more than a silly project, but rather evolves into a statement about human nature and relationships. You definitely haven’t seen anything like it.
I saw this last night, and you should see it as soon as you can. It’s a very, very good movie that starts with a neat gimmick (a movie written in turns by writers who haven’t read the earlier parts, intercut with documentary interviews of the creators themselves) and takes it to places both extremely funny and sincerely touching.
Meeting the writers one by one and watching them speculate as to what this movie is about or where it’s going feels really special and fun, in the same way that watching good live improv does. It’s super funny, but the way the patchwork, this-should-not-work movie at the heart of things rises above insanity and becomes a mirror for the writers’ own feelings on friendship and collaboration is really pretty special. See it!
