RESPECT RECS!

IT’S TIME

THEY’RE HERE

The team here at Respect Films will now be participating in a sporadic series of multimedia recommendations. I call them Respect Recs, and I’m really psyched about them. Reason being, you get to learn a bit about us through the stuff we like, and we get to talk about the stuff we like, which is pretty fun.

First up, one of our Fearless leaders. Patrick Meaney. Patrick is a director, comic book author, and our California kingpin. Here is his first rec:

What is it: 

The anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion.

How did you find out about it:

Back in the 00s, I was pretty active on the Barbelith forums, a group of people who linked up thanks to Grant Morrison’s Invisibles comic and built an online community. DC artist Cameron Stewart, comics writer/film director Adam Mortimer and many other notable people were on there back in the day. 

What do you like about it:

Evangelion is incredibly popular in Japan, which is kind of baffling to me since it’s such an intense and experimental work. Director Hideaki Anno was processing his own depression and filtered it through a series about alien creatures attacking Earth and the teenage giant robot pilots who had to defend it. The series starts out in a dark, but fairly conventional style and spins further and further into experimental insanity as it goes on, culminating in the mind bending End of Evangelion movie.

Kit is drinking lattes, making bourbon sours, and talking eastsiderstheseries with Zooey Magazine. READ HERE!

He looks like he belongs in Tenspotting right?

GOOD NEWS

HE 

IS

Kit Williamson is amazing and so pro Kickstarter, I’m just going to have to piggy-back on this already info-ful post and say hey Kit Williamson fans, this bourbon sour making kickstarter super hero is in our short film-to-be called Tenspotting. It’s a rom-com about cosplay, fandom, Doctor Who, Comic Cons, shenanigans, and falling in love. You should check it out. Kit is only one of a dozen good reasons to check it out/ support. 

We’re hoping you that you do though.

PS we only have 7 days left so if you could circulate this around that would be super cool. 

@kitwilliamson is pretty great, we approve of this post

oiy, I know, but I was saying 9 days left until

image

That’s nice Doctor but I was saying

imageTHERE ARE ONLY NINE DAYS LEFT OF TENSPOTTING’S KICKSTARTER, PERHAPS YOU COULD STOP BEING ADORABLE FOR A SECOND?

image

guess not. Anyway, Tenspotting’s Kickstarter Campaign ends in 9 days and if you…

It’s still August

And in our hearts we’re on vacation 

no matter what. Even though we’re working on Tenspotting, She Makes Comics, and The Neil Gaiman Doc and that’s just us cherry picking the best ones there’s even more stuff in development and kicking around various inboxes. 

What I’m saying is stay tuned sports fans… because Fall is way cooler than Summer ;) 

themarysue:

There’s a new Spider-Woman variant cover that is, er…. less than good. But(t) we had fun with it, anyway.

Hit the link for the rest (as well as for actual, serious commentary on the cover).

Yeah, we’re less than pleased. To put it mildly. 

this is just really cute, and and us beings of light need cute around.

THE LEGION and their queen! #sdcc #KellySueDeconnick 
Kelly Sue Deconnick does her classic duck face with a Carol Corps meetup at SDCC that happens to include Tiny Princess Captain Marvel (yes BrightCopperPenny's niece the original and super cute tiny Princess Thor/Cap), a Kate Bishop, and far more badass women than this one photo can contain. 
You should probably keep tabs on She Makes Comics so you can see all this awesomeness in action…
She Makes Comics —coming sooner rather than later ;)
