You guys have been really good about keeping in touch, which I appreciate. Got my rewards yesterday, almost died from epicness overdose. I made a small unpacking video. I'm almost bursting into tears from happiness at any given moment in the vid, so forget I said anything.
Thanks for all the hard work guys, this is AWESOME! BDB FTW!
The DVDs arrived today! thank you :) greetings from Austria
Definitely in the us. Been keeping up with the posts. I was more making sure I hadn't missed something. Thanks for the reply. Keep up the great work.
Hey, Philip C. If you are in the U.S. And don't receive your reward by the end of Dec let us know. If you're outside of the U.S. And don't receive it by late Jan let us know. We'll continue to keep everyone up to date in the updates section - feel free to check out those posts if you want more detailed info. Thanks!
Still not received mine. Should I be concerned?
Got my dvd today. Was awesome watching it in one big go.
Glad to hear you like it, Roxanne. For the cover - initially we were going to ship the signed cover wrapped around the shrink-wrapped DVD (mostly to avoid opening up 600 DVD cases and inserting a new cover). But we decided there was too much risk of the separate signed cover being damaged, so we went ahead and opened all the cases and shipped them with the signed covers intact. :)
Got my DVD in the mail today! Love the jacket design, and the disc itself looks sweet. Just an FYI - only the signed cover is in the jacket. I honestly don't care, as the signed cover is fantastic, but I thought you guys had signed extras? Anyways, the DVD was packaged well and arrived without a scratch. Now to block out some time and watch the series in one sitting.
Just filled out th survey. Can't wait to finally get the gifts!!
Love love loved it. Amazing job to all you guys!
This was awesome, and a ton of fun.
Thank you very much.
I asked before, but I'll ask again since it's been a while: Any ideas on doing a bluray of the entire saga for those of us who signed up for the dvd? I'd love to have these eps in HD.
Yes, part 4 is the second best episode (the first one is still the best without a doubt). :-) I can wait if you make more episodes than planned. :-) I hope you get positive feedback from someone working at Nintendo, that would be awesome! If I were Nintendo, I would sell your DVD at the Nintendo World store.
Wow, Mattias, I am glad you left a message. We got mixed up and thought someone posted an update with 4 right before we left town, and evidently that wasn't the case. We're on it now! Hope you enjoy!
Hey! Listen! I just visited YouTube and saw that you've released part 4, so why didn't you send us an update?! It's been out for two weeks without me knowing about it. :-( Anyway, thank you for part 4! :-) I hope I don't sound too grumpy now. I'm just eager to see all the parts and I'm a spoiler guy so I don't have much patience. I'm gonna watch part 4 now.
Enjoyed the first behind the scenes vid, and I certainly look forward to seeing more of them!
So very excited for this. You lot are geniuses and I can't wait to see how far you guys can take this ^_^
Oh man... I love the behind the scenes footage! Thanks for sharing it with the backers!!!
you guy's looking for any extras?
Yay! I'm so happy for you guys!
You're on a roll with this franchise. Looking forward to fresh ideas and great entertainment.
oh, damn... it was founded! *Runs around cheering and with arms flailing*
You guys rock. Please keep it up!
Thank you so much for your support, everyone!
Sam, Micah and Matt (Mario) work as video/AV guys at different offices. Rick, our tech director, works in programming. And Brian (Toad) works in customer service.
LeRoy, no worries, we appreciate you watching the series!
Steve, I want to keep an eye out for more sound effects opportunities like that. ;o)
Snowbaha, We've got a couple translations on part 2 now, and more will trickle in.
Mattias, thanks so much. In the past, due to our DVD authoring software, we've been limited to English subs, and may be again....but we'll look into the possibility of additional subs, and let you know if it turns out possible. Thanks so much!
So glad that you guys reached your goal! Honestly had no doubt that you were going to succeed! The series is off to an amazing start, and I can't wait to see the rest!
Also, can't wait for the Sailor Moon film. I'm sure it will be beautiful.
I just saw the first two episodes of this and metal modern war thing and both were awesome keep up the good work and out of curiosity what are your day jobs (besides being awesome directors.
Wish I had more money I'd donate more then $25 but other problems in life namely the military keeps most of my money used up evil traveling distances lol.
kind of sad the brothers don't make the 8 bit "got hit" sound when they take a crowbar to the face (or a hammer to the meatballs)
Very nice serie ! Will you translate the part 2 like the first on Youtube ? :)
I'm very glad that you reached your goal! :-) Congratulations! I waited to back you until your goal was reached because I didn't know what was going to happen to my money in case you didn't reach your goal... Here's my question: Are you going to do subtitles for the DVD edition? I would like to translate the English subtitles into Swedish (my native language which I'm very good at) for the DVD and I would of course do it for free! ;-) Thank you in advance for a reply and thank you for making this fantastic show!! Episode 1 is my favorite of the 2 available.
YAY...I am so glad that your project was backed completely! I am excited to watch future eps. of Mario Warfare!!! Keep up the good work! :D
Big cheers that you meet your goal!
i see you guys meet the goal. congratulations, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays :)
Woohoo! You guys me your goal! Now let's see how much more you guys can get! Can't wait to see the next episode!
Thanks Joseph! Thanks Dylan, I'm really happy about the stunts in Episode 2! Our new stunt guy Steven Carr got to do some...unusual falls. ;o)
very impressed with you guys very innovative stunts I cant wait to see what you come up with next beat down boogie you have a new fan
Ya know what? Screw it. The world didn't end, it's Christmas season, I'm in a good mood, and I just saved 15% or more on my car insurance by switching to Geico. Upping my donation to $350. And yes, i said "Christmas" and not "holidays." :P
Thanks so much Joseph! We have the general path of the main good guys and bad guys mapped out - as well as the major turns and emotional parts. But we also like to leave a lot of room for flexibility, because opportunities for cool locations or more characters might pop up. Since we work on this around our day jobs, keeping the script flexible is a great way to overcome obstacles (such as location problems) without having to compromise the quality of any scenes. ;o)
Purely out of curiosity, do you guys have a whole script done or is a lot of the end still up in the air? I'm an (extremely) ameture filmaker myself and am curious what your process is for making these series. Anyways, for me filmaking will always be simply a hobby, but It's amazing to see artists like you slowly advancing your careers as filmakers. You are a real inspirtion, and having the oportunity to help you guys out is an honor. Dropped you guys $75. I'd give more but my parents and girlfriend would probably kill me. I can't wait to see where this series goes. Good luck!
Thanks for the reminder Tim! ;o)
And thanks everyone for helping us do what we really like to do, not just for our own sakes, but for anyone out there who gets a smile or laugh from Mario Warfare!
Pledged! Been following this for a long time on facebook and loved your Modern War Gear series! Keep up the fantastic work *throws cash at screen*
I love it! I am an avid cosplayer and I love seeing you guys go all out for this video! I hope my contribution helps!
For Mario Mario, Luigi Mario and the interwebs!
Really love your first series... can't wait for this one... so happy I can help support you guys... Go Go NC!
