Cinevore crew co-writing upcoming episodes of Living in 8 Bits

October 28, 2011

Cinevore’s Matt Conant and Stephanie Yuhas recently co-wrote a script for the hit web series “Living in 8 Bits” for the New Jersey-based Mixed Nuts Productions. Since show-runner Michael Licisyn is one of the talented camera ops behind OverAnalyzers, the collaboration was long-overdue. Licisyn himself did final tweaks on the episode to make sure the mood, comedy, and timing matched the vibe of the series. Conant and Yuhas also assisted with the concept of another episode (which was subsequently written in its entirely by Licisyn), and one or both of them will likely be making an appearance in at least one of the episodes alongside. The shoot is set to take place in New Jersey, and in and around the Project Twenty1 headquarters in downtown Norristown, PA.

Living in 8 Bits follows the interview-style reality show format of shows like The Office, but applies it to the premise that video game logic exists in real life. Prior episodes have focused on hilarious and diverse video game topics ranging from football teams that are unstoppable when they zigzag across a field to doors that open only when shot with firearms, to the tragic consequences for main characters in shooters whose arms get stuck that way.

Originally scheduled for October 29th, the shoot has been postponed due to unseasonable weather predictions including the threat of snow (really? before Halloween?). The episodes will likely film in November and arrive on sometime this winter.

In addition to the two episodes mentioned above, a collaboration on two future episodes are in planning stages as well.

For all the original Metroid fans out there, check out Mixed Nuts’ hilarious recent episode “Justin Bailey”:


Music video @ Norz Hill Farm

June 5, 2008

Our music video is on track to be filmed in the final two weeks of June. Among the locations now in place, we can officially include Norz Hill Farm! Thanks to the generosity of Richard Norz, we will be filming on their farm one weekend soon. As a bonus, this farm features the famous cow from the Chick-Fil-A print ads! What better animal to promote our music video than that, huh?

Check them out! We hear they hold a wicked haunted house in October!

Also, congratulations to Brittany Brazill, who has signed on to play the lead! Producers Stephanie Yuhas and Matt Conant met with her the other day, and she is uber-excited about the project. As are we to work with her. More soon!


Tough decisions…

May 27, 2008
Thanks to all those who made it out for our casting call on Saturday at PIFVA, and the overflow call on Sunday at Cinevore HQ in Norristown. We saw so much phenomenal talent, we actually left the call trying desperately to think of parts for some of you.

Of course, only a few roles are immediately available, and we’ll be making our decisions in the next couple of days for the earlier projects. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, a rough draft of the parody song for our music video has been edited, and it’s coming along very nicely. Likewise, a second cut of Dirty Dishes has been edited by Psynema’s Gary Hanna, and it’s coming along very nicely as well! Keep your eyes peeled for more info on these projects in the coming week or two.
