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.
