The Official OUTLINE!

Several people have asked to do stories on the film, and so I thought I'd share with you guys the standard issue outline!

I've censored out a few names because...well...I want to retain some surprises as far as casting goes! Anyway, here it is...

Main Moon Productions returns with the debut of it's most ambitious project to date, MONSTER MANAGEMENT SECURITY BUREAU of CINCINNATI! Jonas Treadway refuses to grow up. In a last ditch effort to promote his comic book at the mid wests largest anime convention, something extraordinary happens that will alter his life forever! With a mix of Japanese sentai (think Power Rangers), convention culture, and all things geeky, MMP takes us on a ride that will surely make your girlfriends think twice about you "getting too old for this". Starring D**** R****, Sullivan Smith, Jesse Hanson, Macy Fox, Landon Norman and ***** ******. Written by Ricky henry. Directed by Ricky Henry and Andrew Swope. Featuring original music by Shael Riley.

Shapes and the Pulling Thereof

As stated waaaay back in the beginning, our good friend Shael Riley is going to be composing all of the music for the film, and so far everything is coming along quite well! Since you've all been such good boys and girls, here is a sneak preview of the most important song in the film, Pull Shapes!

What do you do when the music stops?

Chris Jericho is coming back to save us from the terrible wrestling product that is on TV. Thank you.

Rediscovering Jonas.

The main character in any story must be someone the audience feels some emotional connection with, someone the audience loves or loves to hate. Jonas, for example, is a sweet innocent childlike man from Cincinnati who is thrust into extreme turmoil, and we see all of his emotions and feelings unfold as the movie progresses.

What a lot of people don't know is that I've had the idea for this picture in my head for almost 3 and 1/2 years. I was laughing about it earlier, when I told someone that the security team originally came to be, after finding an ad in the back of a city paper. It was also set in a world, where major cities like New York and LA, places that would seem like prime targets for monster invasions, already had established sentai squads. But one thing that never changed from draft to draft, was the underlining theme of being way past your time to move out of your parents house, and finding direction. I'm not going to come out and say that I've been dealt a bad deck of cards in my day, but in my profession, which is graphic design, it's pretty seriously cut throat.

So after we had a really good time making Bizarre Love Triangle, and met a lot of cool people at MAGFest, I figured the time was right to tackle the task that was way past due. During this time, I wasn't exactly working in the "field". I was doing some screen printing and gallery shows, and kept a steady paycheck rearranging stuff at grocery stores, also known as "visual merchandising". At this time, I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to stay in Cincinnati. My philosophy was always, I can be the big fish in a small pond. I had oppertunity after oppertunity to, as The Pet Shop Boys say "Go West" and try to work as a designer in Portland, where everything was sorta layed out for me, but something was just not right. I can't explain it.

I'm being kicked out off the computer, but I'll get to the point later...

Moving right along

Everything is going swell, and some filming officially begins in about a week! We also have big casting news later this week, so stayed tuned!

I didn't get to officially congratulate Ashley (Annie in BLT) on the engagement to Drew (camera operator on BLT)! We totally have a mom and dad part to fill in MMSBC. Hmmmm.

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

So far so awesome!

Casting is going good. We haven't really "locked down" everyone yet, but as soon as we do, we'll let you know!

Monday, July 30, 2007

One More Time

Teaming up and sharing the directing duties for the film are none other than Main Moon founders Ricky Henry and Andy Swope. This will be the second film co directed by the duo. Main Moon just isn't the same without Andy around. Now if only we could lockdown that Treadway kid...

Saturday, July 28, 2007

Welcome Sullivan Smith!

MMP welcomes the first major addition to the cast, the hilarious Mr Sullivan Smith!

Monday, July 23, 2007

Meeting of the Minds

Last night we had a long meeting about MAGFest and the likelihood of MMSBC being ready in time. If MMSBC is nowhere near completion, rest assured we have a nice little backup plan in place. Not only will we bring you a ton of behind the scenes clips from MMSBC, we will also have a full trailer, and an amazing original short.

I got an email asking if Bizarre Love Triangle will be shown again. Honestly, I doubt it, but you never know. That's just one of those thing I think we'll leave behind this year and keep in the vault.

I wish I could give details about the "back up plan" but it would take all of the fun out of me.

Friday, auditions begin for Wuan. This guy has the best lines in the movie. I hope we find a winner.

ALSO! Main Moon Productions has always been very much associated with the Underground Wrestling Alliance, a local indpendant wrestling promotion. It's been a few years, but from what I hear the UWA may be back in full force this fall! This is awesome news. It's been a great year for MMP so far!

Take a Leak 2

Wuan is my favorite character.

Kaori is supposed to be vegan right?

As far as I know.

Remember Ed Bellamy, the guy that
went out with Kaori's friend June?

Yeah I remember June. Didn't she
leave him for some chick?

Yeah, real bizarre story.

2 < 3

Magen tends to break into song during auditions. I thought Shael might get a lol out of this. Just so you know, Mr. Riley will be receiving his business gift shortly.

Round One - FIGHT!

I would like you to meet our soft spoken yet very talented fight coordinator Arton, alongside the always awesome Landon "Hornbuckle" Norman!

It's been a very difficult month. From an exhaustng weekend trip with nerdcore's finest, to starting a brand new job teaching, I really had to take a step back and ask myself whether or not I was ready to commit to such a large project.

About 3 weeks ago, i began building the costume for the giant (SPOILER!) robot mech that appears near the end of the film. Have you ever had a dream or a goal that seemed unattainable? This was begining to seem that way.

Like PaRappa said, "You gotta believe". Simply believing in your skills, talents, strengths and desires will take you a long way.

An old friend from college once had a message on her voice mail that said, "Hard work will win over talent, when talent refuses to work hard." I'm really not sure that is her original quote, or if she got it from someone else. But I have never forgotten that statement. Every day it is so bizarre and strange how that automatically pops into my mind. I don't have to try to recall it, it is just there, written in indelible ink, engraved into my daily thought patterns. It's even caused me to spaz out on girlfriends who in my mind were "holding me back". True insanity. But sometimes you have to be insane to take on a task like this.

The greatest tragedy is the millions of people each day that give up on their dreams and goals because they fail to persevere through the hard times to reach the end. Many give up just before they have reached a point of seeing their dreams become a reality.

"Well, I'm not going home. I'm going to get on that boat, and I'm going to kick Bisons ass so hard, the next Bison wanna be is going to feel it. Now, who wants to go home, and who wants to go with me!!" - Col. William Guile Street Fighter 1994

Get ready.

Here are some wallpapers from Bizarre Love Triangle. Just an example of what I meant by offering something to download every week. Enjoy. (this has nothing to do with the big surprise download coming in a few days!) BBL.

Robots and People

Starting Tuesday, the MMP Blog will be updated daily as preproduction has just kicked into gear. To celebrate this long and tiring process, the next post will feature a very awesome exclusive download. Maybe we'll try to do some sort of download every week. Stay tuned.

Wouldn't it be cool if MMSBC were a musical?

[Jonas:] What the hell am I doing, thinking with my willy? Knowing I don't love her, I tell her no, then kiss her toes.
[Kaori:] What the heck are you doing leading on that poor girl? You know there's something better, deep in you. Now let it through.
[Jonas:] Turn away from weakness, turn to something better. Show me how to live right. I never noticed you, now I worship you.
[Kaori:] Don't be talking silly. Save deceits for the young girls. You can talk for real to me. Close your eyes and leave the lies.
[Jonas:] Pain, pain go away. Come again another day. I got a friend tonight, a superfriend to make things right.

I hope you guys are enjoying the script...

The Crest of a Wave

Tonight I'm going to be uploading an uncensored clip from the upcoming Super Buffet Cinema season 3.5 episode(not the special thats airing in Novem...oops!). The episode that I'm going to be turning into the studio soon, is actually going to be built around a lost season 3 Halloween special. I skimmed through the material last night and it's not that bad. Pretty funny stuff if I do say so myself.

We shot a lot of host segments talking to the first lady of MMP, Allison Pangallo. I think you guys will find it entertaining. The film that will be going along with the show is an old bootleg anime called DALLOS. I have yet to watch it, and I probably won't. I hope you guys hate it as much as I would.

Stay tuned for showtimes and stuff.

May Day

Hello! Thanks for the emails regarding the costume. Why was a guy wearing the pink suit? Stay tuned...(starring John Ritter R.I.P)

Buuuuut, I'm hear today to speak exclusively to our NKY fans. Later this week I will have an update on the much anticipated Super Buffet Cinema special that will air later this year. Its been in the planning stages for quite sometime, and while we can't give the exact date out yet, let me just say that it's "significant". However, in the meantime (because waiting sucks) I'm working on some new content that further explores the costumes and will be throwing together some reworked reruns to turn into the studio for those boring summer nights.

Also, if you haven't had the chance to add us to your SPACE, DO IT NOW!!

See ya!

Cosplaying Around

Helmets? Nope. Spider-Man style masks? Yep.


Midnight Hour

Image Hosted by
So I'm getting more e-mails about this aborted Lupin thing than I ever imagined I would. As of right now it's up to 20,000+ hits on youtube. Crazy. Well, I have some good news and some bad news to report. The bad news is the only footage that was ever shot has been taped over. I needed a tape really bad for a wedding, and had no other option. Granted it wasn't all that impressive. Luke was so strung out and off of his game it wasn't even funny. Shane looked nothing like Goemon. Fujiko was much better looking on the internet than in real life. Bleh. You're not missing anything. Would I ever consider trying it again? Well, I wouldn't do it unless I had Josh and Luke as Jigen and Lupin, and I'd need to find the missing script, right? Good news is I found it, and I know it's the final draft because of this one piece right here:

Not speaking is the flower.


Silence is golden.

Nice of you to drop by.

Not exactly, but by the sound of things I suggest we do, and swiftly.

(characters are broken, the film seems to stop and the director yells cut, approaches Goemon, rips the horrible wig off)

Get off of my set. Where do they get these guys? Get out. Alright go on...

So, uh anyway I take it Fujiko has the card.

Yikes! It was bad. I had intentions to cast a real asian as Goemon at one point and a friend from high school name Kara (pronounced Shara...dont ask) to play Fujiko, but she nor were any asians available at the time. Eventually I may post up the entire screenplay, but for now I'm knee deep in the sentai project. But, I do want to thank everyone for the attention and the emails, so keep the questions coming! I'll be back next week with our first sentai costume test! YESSSS.

Out of the Shadows

People often ask me when this will be released...

Sadly, never. It was never finished.

Now get excited about SENTAI!!

Helmets and awesome

An email from the great Booty Josh.

Hey I was thinking about the helmet problem earlier this week and I thought: "why do they need to be full helmets? Live action sentai shows only adopted them so they can have actors and stuntmen in the same role, the sentai animations like voltron didn't have full helmets.

He is wise.

Here's where it all goes down.

Giant Shirts and Final Drafts!

Hey! Well, I have what I believe to be the biggest and most exciting news so far. After a successful 'help wanted' ad that was posted this weekend, the MMP crew spent hours searching for the right people to help us with the right kind of jobs, and so far the results have been overwhelming!

Just want to take the time to say thanks to all who offered help. We need it.

Next up, more scouting. This time, Magen and I went to the levee to see what we could find and what we found giant t-shirt?

Hmmm. We plan on having giant robots. Will it be big enough?

We can only hope. And, if you thought the last bridge we found was cool...well, this one is a different kind of cool. Cool as is cold as in covered in snow.

So now that we've got a good start in the early planning stages, and the final draft of the script expected to be completed and sent out by the weekend things are going a-ok. However, just hours ago, we had no idea what to say when we found out about this...

We'll be there. Count on it.

Scout Troopers

So last week we spent a lot of time all over the city looking for some fun places to shoot. One thing I really want to capture on film this time around is the splendid Cincinnati skyline. So off we went looking for the most interesting places, and found a great spot on the other side of the river.

As the week goes on, we'll continue to check out more places. I'm really tired. I learned how to make a fried tofu dish and pancakes from scratch. What a weekend.

Man, I think it's time to play DDR again.

Friday, February 9, 2007

Casting Rumors? Already?

So, people have been asking me for details about the story and who is attached to the project thus far. Well, the anwser one. Well, I take that back. We did start minor talks to a cat in upstate New York about donning some tights, but it's all going to depend on schedueling and what not.

Now, you may be asking...well, whose NOT in it?

While I wont name names, I did catch Magen in a candid moment when discussing casting today.

But never say never in MMP land.

Take it easy.


Wednesday, February 7, 2007

Progress? Hardly.

Well, I take that back. One thing we have to make sure, is that in making this movie, we use the best video and audio equipment that we can. One major problem with BLT, was the audio. No no, the Shael Riley soundtrack was fine, but the dialog had to be completely over dubbed. Fear not, because in order to ensure we have the best in audio equipment, Magen and I decided to do our community a favor, and sign up for the very informative, and very free, public access field training classes!

Image Hosted by

This may come as a shock to you, but by taking the classes, not only do you get a crash course in using the equipment, you get to check it out and take it home. Rad. So support your local public access station!

Oh yeah, and if anyone is interested in decorating with one of my paintings, please contact me. My checking accouount is hurting. Bad.

Tuesday, February 6, 2007

To our friends and fans!

Hey! Ricky here with Main Moon Productions! Now, before I get blasted by our critics for not having a "real" website and taking the easy way out, I do apologise. What this allows however is for everyone to easily check out the progress of what's sure to be a disaster in the making, MONSTER MANAGMENT SECURITY BEAURU OF CINCINNATI (MMSBC)! Yup. That's right, this is the follow up film that we'll begin working on soon. Sound exciting? No? Yeah, we're the people who brought you Bizarre Love Triangle...

Image Hosted by

But fear not. As much good feedback as I've received on BLT, MMSBC is way off from the whiny romp of yesterday. What you'll experience is the making of a sci-fi action comedy masterpiece, and we're glad to have you along for the ride.

So to all of our local fans, and everyone we've met along the way, sit back relax, and watch some giant rubber suited monsters **** some **** up.
