Category: Vol. 6: Alice in Wasteland
Screening Time!

And at long last, after months and months of hard work, our little film Mind Your Manners is officially finished and ready for the world to see.

Back through the Looking Glass …

Alas, as all good things must come to an end it is with a heavy heart that we scribe our final address to you dear reader. The journey has been long, winding, and just a little bit unhinged, but overall the value that the four of us producers have found in this experience is unparalleled. We are only a fraction of [...]

An artist sketching commission at the Artist Alley. DIY promotion at its best!

by Wincy Aquino Ong At the Emerald City Comicon, there was one area of the exhibit hall called the Artist Alley.

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see? “ And now, if you understood that…you would feel as we do right now, with the whirlwind of tasks [...]

As our producer team continues to work through post, we are trying to take everything in and learn as much as possible during the process.  In the very beginning of Compendium, we were told that there are three steps to telling a story: first the initial draft, then capturing it on film, and finally, through editing.

So what happens in [...]
