Podcast update

The HD version of leprocop has been released as a Podcast episode. Sadly the HD version won't be compatible with ipods (not with mine anyway), but you can play it on your computer if you can run quicktime (.mov) files.

Five Frickin' Years: MPZ goes HD

Monkey Pirate Zombie is officially Five Frickin' years old as of tomorrow (28th of April), which means expect all sorts of celebratory shenanigans over the coming days, weeks of months (we're five for a whole year after all). To kick off I have an announcement : that I will now be producing animations in HD. So I hatched a plan to transfer lots of my old toons into the new spanky format. Until I discovered that the HD-ness shows up the creakyness of some of the old material. So i decided I had to basically do it all again.

Which brings us to the shiny new version of my personal favourite animation from the site's history: Leprocop. It has been pretty much remade from the ground up (although the awesome voice acting remains) and is about 90% new, and very shiny looking. It's also a sneaky peak at where I'm looking at going with my trailer spoofs in future. You can check it out in HD on YouTube. (Make sure you click the HD tab to watch it in best quality)
This may be just the first of my old toons to get shinied up so watch this space.

Less boring, cartoon related update

Just to fill you in, there's quite a number of things in the pipeline. Two more episodes of Lovebytes (aka Ud8.tv) are written and are somewhere on the path to production. I am also collaborating with Proving Ground to make another animation, following the last successful collaboration. And those are only the things I'm prepared to tell you about right now!. More info soon!

Boring techie update (updated)

If you swung by here in the last 24 hours in this space you may have seen a very happy post in this space about how I had overcome the problem with the coding on this page that made it look screwy on MS Internet Explorer. Very pleased with myself I was too. However checking back this morning I have no idea how but it's screwed up again. As a last ditch attempt I'm going to scrap the template and start again. So in the meantime there may be some disruption and the look of the site may change back and forth. Sorry for the disruption but hopefully It'll be worth it in the end.

update 14.55 BST: Site maintainence has begun. Site will look different for a little while, please bear with us.

update 16.30: Now looking pretty much as it should. A few bits of cosmetic changes still to go but so far so good! knowing my luck the small changes will cause the whole thing to go screwy again!

I'm very excited today to bring you the most exciting news in the history of the site. Just hours ago we've signed a contract with a major Hollywood studio! In Summer 2011 Leprocop will be coming to a cinema near you! Based on our popular animation, it will be adapted into a full length feature. The director is already attached- and this is the best news of all.-the visionary genius behind such modern classics as House of the Dead and Bloodrayne 3. Yes folks, none other than Uwe Boll. It's too early to confirm casting but Bruce Willis has shown interest in the role of Jack Kannon, and Jeremy Irons is in negotiations to play the villain- a real coup after his tour-de-force performance in Dungeons and Dragons. More news as we get it.

UPDATE//...... Well obviously this was our little April Fools gag. Ahhahahahahah! Sure nobody fell for it, (Uwe Boll? Visionary?) but hey it was fun.
