Starbase Studios

For filmmakers looking to produce a Star Trek Fan Film, there’s basically only one set left open to them in the US, unless they build their own, and that’s Oklahoma City’s Starbase Studios

Starbase Studios has one of only three replica bridge sets in the US, and is now the only set open to the public to use for filming. The studio operates as a non-profit and supports the guidelines set by CBS. The studio is home to several productions, and it needs our help.

The studio has had a good run at it’s current location, but has been asked to move soon and there is a deadline. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the moving expenses and anything anyone can spare towards the effort is , of course, immensely appreciated.

Huge news for fans of Hollywood Movie Studio, aka Hollywood Mogul 3…the game is now free! Well, it’s pay what you want, and it’s definitely still worth some dough in my humble opinion.

HMS is the culmination of generations of text-based games simulating YOU running a major Hollywood studio. Sure, it’s not flashy and the graphics are near non-existent, but that’s a plus, not a negative here.

Being text-based, it is not going to float every persons boat. Still, no other studio sim lets you feel like you are actually green-lighting the flicks and seeing if they pay off in the end, raising your studio cash enough to try your next silly Rom Com starring George Clooney. Or Jude Law. Or anyone for that matter. Continue reading »

It’s always nice to see someone who has been featured here on Moby’s! move onto a new project, and that is the case with artist David Jaxon. About a year ago I posted a couple of commission pieces by David, including one of Silverwolf’s Edge, a piece that came out really well.

And now we can see more of David’s work in his new Kickstarter! Yay, Moby promoting a Kickstarter, how aboot that? Seriously though, it is nice to see someone taking it to the next level and making their own book, like Super Legion. Continue reading »

You never know what you are going to find when you check out the comic books currently fundraising on Kickstarter. The books come in all kinds of flavors, from graphic novels to generic superheroes to…an homage to Reefer Madness.

reefermadnessFor those too hip being square, Reefer Madness was a 1936 anti-marijuana propaganda film made to convince the public that smoking ‘reefer’ would inevitably lead to “manslaughter, suicide, attempted rape, hallucinations, and descent into madness due to marijuana addiction”. Oh my!

Thankfully someone, Jeremy Myers, has taken it upon himself to use this 80 year-old Public Service Announcement disguised as a film to make a comic book, and it looks fun. Continue reading »
