Stick to it!


Uh, oh. Another cheesy pun comic. It can only mean one thing: college crunch time!



Beowulf Reloaded


With the worldwide release of the Beowulf movie this weekend, I thought it was a perfect chance to resurrect the first “Base14 Classic.” Presenting “Beowulf Reloaded,” our company’s first big hit!

Produced all the way back in 2003, “Beowulf Reloaded” began as a English class project and wound up taking over a month to film and edit. The movie was met with great enthusiasm and was a huge catalyst to additional movie projects in the coming year. It is a bit primitive compared to the work we’re doing now, but it’s an important testament to our filmmaking roots. It’s also worth noting that “Beowulf Reloaded” still holds the record for longest running-time of any Base14 production at 18:24! Yowzar!

And now for the first time ever, “Beowulf Reloaded” is viewable online. So if you’ve got 18 minutes to burn, head on over to Base14tv, scroll down to the bottom of the library, and have a look at the classic movie “Beowulf Reloaded.” It’s an enduring statement to what can happen when you’re stuck in high school with way too much free time on your hands.

Good Publicity

So the Purdue Chapter of ACM Siggraph recently had one killer event, featuring speaker Paul Debevec and the 2007 Siggraph Electronic Theater in HD. In order to prepare, we did quite a bit of advertising, including a pretty dedicated flyer campaign. Anyway, you can view the results below. ;)

Oh, and if you haven’t seen Base14tv yet, stop everything and check it out.

I must admit, I can’t take all the “credit” for this one. Alysha thought of the punchline. And remember that cool thing I promised last week? It’s still coming. Just bare with us. :)

At least they’re getting fresh air.


Well, the comic this week is a bit light for the reasons illustrated. I shouldn’t be making promises to make it up to you with cooler things to come, but I promise you there are some really cool things to come. Soon. ;P
