So apparently, on Facebook, they have these things called "pages," where fans of a certain thing can add them. Well, we have a certain thing, and its called Rainbow Bridge, and i think some of you enjoy it. So, if you're on Facebook, why not add it and become a fan! Let people know that you love it! And maybe they might love it:
Another video release! So soon! I know. We're great. Being released on this late night is our very own comic book adaptation of the DC Comics character The Sandman. Shot for a Comics to Film class, this little 11 minute surprise turned out to be quite a nice piece....full of serious...ness. That's right, be prepared to see all your favorite Wowie Kazowie regulars, being completely different than what you expect them to be. And its all here in streaming HD!
Wesley Dodds is The Sandman, a gas-mask wearing detective who subdues his enemies with sleeping gas. While investigating a recent string of serial killings, he finds that his girlfriend and partner, Dian Belmont, has gone missing. Can he save Dian in time, or will her kidnappers be too much for him to handle?
Well. About forking time. I know you long to go back to Rainbow Bridge as much as I long to escape it. Well, here's a Christmas present for you early. The newest Rainbow Bridge tale, Norse Gods Can't Jump, has been released. And you good internet people are invited to the party. Shot on 16mm film (WTF!?) with an amazing crew, check out the first of three new tales to come out this month.
While walking through the gym, Thor and Loki run into an angered Blaine, still pissed from being beaten up by Thor (see "Revenge of the Frost Giant"). Blaine challenges Thor to a game of basketball to settle the score, and unfortunately, Thor has no idea what basketball is. But, does Blaine have other information that may entice Thor to play the game?
Yeah! New Rainbow Bridge material! Bout time. Alright, well its not exactly a new chapter, but still, its something. Check out Thor and Loki getting ready for the holidays, as well as some little snippets from the new chapz.
Many important things to update you with tonight. First and foremost, we've recently upgraded our service at Vimeo to their Vimeo Plus subscription. Now, what that means, is that we're currently changing our catalog over to streaming HD. Alright, well its not exactly HD (because we don't shoot in HD), but its still pretty damn good. I call it "Wowie Kazowie uhhhhHD". So, as of today, you can now watch these films in uhhhHD:
And for those of you who's computers who can't handle the awesomeness of uhhhhHD, you can just hit the little "HD is ON/OFF" button on the video player and go back to standard quality! Its that simple! You choose your own fate! Wow! And stay tuned for The Interview in uhhhhHD as well as everything that is soon to be released will be in this new format. Isn't that wild!
In other news, Wowie Kazowie began production of another film (i know, i know) this past friday. And guess what...it...has...absolutely NOTHING to do with Rainbow Bridge. Bout time right! We began production of an adaptation of the comic book character of Sandman. You know, the guy with the gas mask? Anyways, it should turn out to be a nice little piece, with...not that much humor. Yeah i know, just try to keep an open mind ok? Puh-lease? Here's some pic from the first night.
Meet the villains. Actors Tim Kelly and Frank Perry play some messed up brothers who like...to kill. Among other things.
Their prey? No-longer-newcomer Stephanie ver Eecke plays Dian, the kidnappee, who may or may not have some serious connection with our title character.
Apparently, its a rite of passage for all Wowie actresses to be tied to a chair.
While this may look like Frank looking over his script, he's actually reading some of his poetry aloud. Lucky for him, he had an audience.
I don't exactly know whats going on here. But still, its definitely....serious.
See? We can still all be friends. Tim holding that belt is rather odd though...
Uh. Yeah. Part of our avant garde collection.
The day one cast. What a gang. We should start a band. Don't i say that about every cast?
Oh shit! There's a Sandman in this movie? Wow! Snazzy! And look at that gun! I hear it shoots gas. Zing.
Man, if Sandman had a facebook profile....
That's it for tonight! But we'll be shooting all this week, so stay tuned for even more pictures and updates from the set of Sandman! And like, maybe we'll release a video one of these days.
You've eaten you thanksgiving food, drank your thanksgiving drinks, and cried your thanksgiving tears. And now, what's left? Feeling a little empty inside? Are the Black Friday sales just not cutting it this year?
Well, that's why i have a little treat for you in the form of a never before seen holiday video.
In life, before success, there are usually failures. Many, many failures. How do these failures happen? No one is ever really sure. But today, I am going to show you one of those failures.
I am going to show you how a Wowie Kazowie short fails.
As previously mentioned, we completed day one of Blaine's In Love, a Rainbow Bridge tale focusing on fan favorite...Blaine. Oh, he's not your favorite!? Then you get the fuck out of my blog.
Christian Nilsson returns, once again, as Blaine, the goofy (yet tough!) high school quarterback. This time, though, his dilemma lies not on the field, but within his heart...
Blaine's situation is only further complicated by the arrival of a...BRAND NEW CHARACTER! YEAH! Wowie Kazowie newcomer Stephanie ver Eecke makes her debut as Freya. The fourth god(dess) to arrive in Rainbow Bridge. Shit.
I don't think caption is necessary. I just love these folks.
Freya shows Blaine her god-like abilities by having a ball levitate in mid air. Trust me, if it was a video it would be much more impressive.
And look! Its Veronica! Blaine's (and Loki's) ex-girlfriend returns. Complete with flowers AND blue socks!
Wait. Blaine is wearing a suit?! And not his signature Rainbow Bridge football shirt?! Ok, we've clearly jumped the shark.
When he uses a tripod. You know the shit is about to hit the fan. THE ICE IS GONNA BREAAAK!
On those long...cold....depressing...film shoots, we famous people need something to keep us going. That something....is Goldfish. Fuck yeah.
Ah! She's throwing love at us! Run away! RUN!
Could it be that Blaine and Freya might fall for each other? A human and a god!? Hmm, that sounds more like a season 2 question.
Our wonderful cast. Do you think Blaine can survive all the femininity?!
WALLPAPERS! THEY GO ON YOUR FUCKING WALL!
And thus completes our broadcast day. Check back for more updates on Blaine's In Love, and all things Rainbow Bridge/Wowie Kazowie.
I know. Its been a long time. You might have thought that Wowie Kazowie has collapsed into itself. Well, that didn't happen (yet), we've just been really busy with filming, editing, carnivals, and things of the like. But, I don't want to leave you guys completely in the dark, so here's a general update on like...everything. Totally.
A Rainbow Bridge Halloween, will not be out for Halloween. Sorry. OH. You're saying its already past Halloween!? Damn. Well anyways, the truth is we're still in the editing process, and we want to make sure its...you know, good, and not release it prematurely. So just, hold the phone guys. That goes for Norse Gods Can't Jump as well.
Blaine's In Love begins principle photography (ha) today. It should be a fun little piece and I hope you'll all like it. I mean, everyone loves Blaine, so why wouldn't you love Blaine...being in love.
We've got some other projects in the works that we'll be shooting very soon as well. If all goes to plan, we should have 4 (maybe 5) films to release in time for Christmas. Now that's what i call a fucking stocking stuffer.
Is that it? No, not really, i wanted to alert you to Wowie Kazowie's appearance in the world of....merchandise. Thanks to the wonderful site Cafe Press, we now have all this stuff you can buy (or at least just look at). Some examples are:
A replica of Blaine's signature shirt.
The Rainbow Bridge Logo.
A shirt featuring your favorite three gods.
There's also a hoodie, some other shirts, posters, and a magnet! A MAGNET! So check it out. You don't have to buy anything....just leave me a comment saying "wow, not bad." THE WOWIE KAZOWIE SHOP (GO NOW!)
Also, Wowie Kazowie has joined twitter, a site sorta like facebook if facebook was just status updates and nothing else (cool?). But, I figure we could use it as a way to have like, up to the minute Wowie updates, such as when i dont have time for a formal blog update. These twitter updates will probably consist of what i had for lunch and when i go to the bathroom. But still, if ya on twitter, why not friend us! JEEZE!
Yeah man. Its been a crazy two weeks. But A Rainbow Bridge Halloween has been completed. And a fun time was had by all. Mostly. Enough talk! Pictures!
Christian Nilsson gets suited up as Blaine, the goofy football quarterback. And yes, he is creating a holster/belt thing for toilet paper.
A new character! Yes! Wowie Kazowie vet Tim Kelly enters the world of Rainbow Bridge as Mr. Clark, the depressed and lonely math teacher at the high school. Here, he shows off his...uh, cleaning supplies.
Mr. Clark's depression is further personified by the old, empty house he resides in. Probably the most uncolorful place in all of Rainbow Bridge.
Just to give you an idea of the amount of production design goes into this show; the papers Mr. Clark is grading have all been filled out and are all character-specific. Damn, that's hot.
On this night of Halloween, Mr. Clark gets a little more than your regular trick or treaters.
Blaine. Masked toilet paper vigilante.
Real trouble arrives when Odin comes to the house looking for candy (and yes, his Halloween costume is Santa Claus. Its his first Halloween, give him a break!) Oh, and that evil scarecrow also shows up. Wuh oh.
At least they all managed to get a long at the end of the day. Whew.
Fight scenes are hard work folks. You know how many times Frank had to just lie on the ground!? Damn. God damn.
Fortunately for Thor, Betty gets in on the action. And man does she kick ass.
A reflective scarecrow moment.
Clearly Kiley and that cat have something going on. Let's face it.
Whoa. Talk about the "we're in love with ourselves" club...........i'm the president....
I dont know who's funnier looking. Or who's more irritated.
Yeah. That's what its all about. Family. A family of gods. Let's not forget that.
It's not so much about this.
The fearsome five. Decked out in all their Halloween glory.
Like the other one. Just Odin's being more serious.....
HEY HEY HEY! WALLPAPERS ARE HERE TO STAY!
Widescreen YO! (1280 x 768)
HEY! Fullscreen!(1024 x 768)
That's it my friends. Stay tuned for all things Rainbow Bridge, Wowie Kazowie, and the upcoming release of A Rainbow Bridge Halloween.
