Hey folks! Andrew here…
Two Jackets spent the month of January wrapping up some business from the past. We published a retrospective article about our 2015 Minneapolis 48 Hour Film Project, “Cosmic Questers ‘97”; we posted our short superhero film “Meanwhile, at the Citadel of Superheroes…” online; and we released our first feature film, Limpwings, for purchase and rental on DVD and VOD via Amazon! All the while, we’ve also been preparing and getting really excited for the release of a new project!
On Sunday, February 14th, Two Jackets Productions will launch ShamFiction, our first-ever podcast!
In ShamFiction, we break the first rule of fan fiction: that you have to be a fan to write it! Each episode begins with two of us summarizing the plot, characters, and tropes of a film, television series, book, etc. that the third guy hasn’t seen or read. Then that odd-man-out takes the information provided, writes a short piece of prose inspired by it, and returns to read it on air. After the reading, we discuss what the writer got right about the property, what he got wrong, what worked about the piece, and what didn’t.
On the 14th, the first four episodes of ShamFiction will be available via all the popular podcatchers (including iTunes), and right here on TwoJackets.com. Consider it our Valentine to you! From there, we’ll be releasing a new episode every Sunday for the rest of the year. In the meantime, follow ShamFiction on Twitter and Facebook. We’ll be posting on both those feeds when the podcast goes live!
Also, in case you’re wondering, Two Jackets isn’t leaving filmmaking behind. Once we get the podcast going and it becomes routine, we’re going to be devoting a lot of 2016 to planning our next big filmmaking endeavor. There’s also the 2016 Minneapolis 48 Hour Film Project in June, which we don’t plan on missing!
