Captain Blasto on The Clip Show

The Clip Show, a fantastic web show that showcases popular online video clips and series, gave a GREAT review of Captain Blasto on their latest episode. They ranked the series a 12 out of 13 on their classic rating system. Thanks Jim and the Clip Show crew for spreading the word!

You can see the episode HERE. (The Blasto review is roughly halfway through.) I suggest checking out this show regardless.

SHOW NOTE: Now that power has been restored, Episode 9 is on its way! Thanks for your patience.

Do you have an old television?

Spent the weekend at various flea markets, thrift stores, and garage sales. I'm looking for an old television (the channel dials/rabbit ears variety). Unfortunately the flea markets were made up of VHS tapes, baby formula, nunchucks, and snow tiger throw blankets.

If you have an old television that you would allow us to have/borrow for our upcoming series, we would be INCREDIBLY thankful. Your donation will earn you a credit in the film along with knowing that YOUR television is in a VERY important scene.

Captain Blasto Case Study

Daisy Whitney of did a great case study on Captain Blasto over at The article is a discussion on the transformation of Blasto from an independent feature film to a web series. It also has a FANTASTIC title, "Captain Blasto Obliteratres Film-Web Video Barrier." Captain Blasto obliterating ANYTHING is good in my book.

You can read the article HERE.
And check out Daisy's own series, New Media Minute.

Episode Eight - Crooked Crooks

Episode Eight Delay

Our apologies on the delay of Episode 8! With Labor Day weekend and the onslaught of pre-production responsibilities on The Mercury Men, we got a bit behind. Hope to get the episode up tomorrow!
