Moving Box joins the Chamber of Commerce.

26 03 2010


Hey everyone! Moving Box is on its way up. You are now looking at the newest
members of the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce. We are set to be
featured in April’s Chambergram, which circulates in the county. We have come a
long way since 2005, when Moving Box was just an idea. Now it’s 2010 and we
have a newly renovated studio, a great team of people working with us and a
fantastic group of local and national clients. Much love to everyone that has helped
and contributed along the way to get Moving Box where it is today. Cheers!

-Dr. Z

The Ultimate Warrior VS Stormtroopers

24 09 2009

We did it. MCDeathBear and I completed this little ditty in about two weeks. It’s all your childhood fantasies in the way you always wanted them. That’s right, The Ultimate Warrior from from WWF battling Star Wars Stormtroopers. You’re a nerd right? You get this kind of stuff.

I should warn you, it does include some Gratuitous Violence.

Here’s the video on YouTube:

Update 5/29

29 05 2009

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us. We have lots to tell you. Ready to listen?

Nick Schweip has finished rotoscoping for the film noir, Chalk Outlines. The finished product will be online soon, but until then check out the trailer above. If you really want to be caught up with the film’s production then watch Repentance, a precursor to Chalk Outlines.

We should also mention that we can breathe now. Our recording booth finally got proper ventilation which means no more coughing, headaches, and dead employees from the poisonous air. Next week we plan on starting the setup of our vocal booth. Our little recording studio is growing up so fast…

Film noirs, breathing, what could be next? How about film festivals! With the help of singer-songwriter Tom Knight and a website called Withoutabox we are now ready to send out The Elephant’s Lullaby to film festivals across the country. We’re very excited at the opportunity for audiences to watch the music video on a big screen. We’re also excited to win first prize at every festival. You know that’s what’s going to happen.

Hopefully that was enough info to satisfy all appetites? It wasn’t? Well, check back with us soon for more updates.





We’ve submitted the Olympus Burger pilot to Adult Swim!

27 04 2009

Today, we mailed the Olympus Burger pilot episode and bible to the late-night Cartoon Network block, Adult Swim! Getting onto Adult Swim has been our goal for Olympus Burger since the beginning (which was almost four years ago) so we’re keeping our fingers and everything else crossed.

This picture was taken six minutes before the post office closed, but Chris* turned into The Flash and got it there just in time. He was locked in the post office for a couple minutes afterwards, but then he turned into the Hulk and…asked the lady at the desk to let him out.

Unless the mail gnomes get at it, the package will arrive in Adult Swim’s submission box tomorrow. We’ll put up another post when we hear from them, so check back soon!

*Even though that little sign says “Connor,” that’s Chris. Trust me.
