We are so excited to announce that the project we made for Buffer Festival this year, A Book By Its Cover, will be premiering on our channel in one week!

Booop

For some reason I formed the vague notion that Little VVomen was the Buffer thing. I think because it seemed tonally different than most previous Shipwrecked stuff, so maybe my brain filed it away in that particular dusty corner. (Of my brain. My brain has dusty corners.)

But I’d heard the title “A Book by it’s Cover” already, so my wacky mistaken belief can only be explained by me being a Bad Fan who hasn’t been obsessing as thoroughly as the wonderful creators of Shipwrecked deserve.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing this, and seeing how it departs from what hitherto has been Shipwrecked-Style Content™️.

Change is good. Hard to embrace that particular philosophy in these particular days with all the doses of double-plus-not-good change we’ve been getting, but it remains an irrefutable fact: Change is good.

So. There it is.

I would have been deeply confused through much of this if my younger offspring hadn’t introduced me to The VVitch at one point.

1) you’re interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you! Treat it as though you’re figuring out if YOU really want this job.

2) Pretend you are a secret agent and your interviewer is your target and if you lose your cool, the mission will be a bust. You can’t let down your very scary boss at HQ.

3) Don’t worry. Cuz when you worry you suffer twice. -Newt Scamander.

I never do this, and I feel weird for doing it now, but I have a job interview tomorrow and I’m hella nervous, and I just wanted to know if any of the core four had any advice for me for nerves?

Announcing the Summer of Shipwrecked August challenge! This month we have a prompt every day and we want to see your answers. Participate on whatever social media you choose, just use #summerofshipwrecked so we can see what you say! Today we wanna know: how did you find us? Looking forward to doing this challenge with you!

I answered first over on the hellsite, which is a sad commentary on where I’m spending most of my social-media time these days.

But it’s way more on-brand to answer here. I learned about Shipwrecked from @clavisa, of course, when she lit the raven signal on October 24, 2013.

  Shipwrecked does Winchester and Wine!

To celebrate MK’s birthday, we finally did a trip we’ve been wanting to do for a long time: Winchester and Wine! We drove up to Napa for some wine tasting, and on the way stopped by the Winchester House in San Jose to fulfill a lifelong dream for Sinéad. All of California was so green and beautiful due to the unusual amount of rain we’ve been getting lately. It was a great trip and we wish we could have stayed longer! Guess we’ll have to plan another excursion up north again soon.

Is there a like a timeline thing to watching all of Shipwrecked Comedy so I understand it better (I’m new, I have no idea what I’m doing and I have recently fell in love with their content!)

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

Not really. You can go to their youtube channel and pick whatever.

I started with Poe Party, bc…I mean, it’s Poe Party. (I just posted the masterpost on it, so I’d go by that for its timeline)

As for the rest, I then watched all the BTS and Bloopers for Poe Party (which you don’t have to watch, but it’s there, and why the hell wouldn’t you??) then went on to The Case of the Gilded Lily, which is a detective noir thing. Really excellent.

Then American Whoopie, which is a silent movie spoof. And absolutely hilarious.

So yeah, just check out their youtube channel

It’s all there and it’s all great and there’s not real watch order so it’s all up to you. Or if you’re like me and have trouble making decisions, just do the order I went in XD

And maybe when you’re done you can contribute to their Patreon! Since they met a certain amount, they’ll be doing a table reading of the movie Clue, and Patrons get to vote on who is cast as which character and I can’t fucking wait.

I contributed $5/month, but you can do the $1/mo, or up to $250, and you don’t have to do every month, you can do it whenever you’re able, and you’ll still be supporting this amazing group of awesome and creative people and I swear I’m not paid to promote them they just deserve the world XD

shipwreckedcomedy: Shipwrecked is now on Patreon! After a lot of…

Friday, February 8th, 2019

shipwreckedcomedy:

Shipwrecked is now on Patreon!

After a lot of thought and discussion (and, a pretty weird meeting as you can see in the video), we’ve decided to launch a Patreon. We’re hoping that this will help support us financially as a group, enable us to make more content more often, and give us a way to connect with you all on a regular basis!

What is Patreon? It’s an awesome way of crowdfunding that helps creators be supported directly by their audience. Rather than a one-time pledge, like on Kickstarter, you can pledge to support us at a monthly level. That way, we continually have money coming in for all the various fees we have, writing we’re doing, or on-set production costs. And you get cool things in return and become a part of our Shipwrecked Patreon community.

Here are the different rewards you can sign up for:

$1/month – Each month you will get access to a written update detailing what all we’ve been up to.

$5/month – Not only will you will get a written update detailing what we’ve all been up to in the month, but you’ll also unlock an exclusive patrons-only vlog as well as early access to all our videos!

$10/month – All of the above, as well as access to a monthly 2-hour Shipwrecked livestream just for patrons.

$15/month – At this level we’ll send you a monthly postcard featuring a beautiful BTS image from one of our productions or a photo from one of our vintage shoots, signed by us and sent to your home. You’ll also get access to our exclusive bts twitter with production updates, just for patrons. Plus all of the above!

$25/month – BTS heaven! At this level, you’ll receive access to pinterest boards, scripts, production diaries, spreadsheets–every behind the scenes aspect of our production process. Plus all of the above!

$50/month – At this level you will receive a handwritten note either from a historical figure of note or from a Shipwrecked character. Always wanted to correspond with Lady Lenore? Now’s your chance! Not only that, but each month you will get an audio download of a different Poe Party author’s actor reading an excerpt from one of their works. Sean Persaud reading Poe? Joey Richter reading Hemingway? Yes please. Also includes all of the above.

$100/month – This level ensures you will get your name in the credits of each video you help support. You’ll also get an exclusive signed poster for the projects we complete that you’ve supported, and a monthly digital movie night with those of us here at Shipwrecked–and you get to help us choose the movie! Also includes all of the above.

$250/month – At this level you will get a monthly half-hour skype session with us. Not only that, but you get to name a character in one of our projects! Also includes every other tier reward.

We also have goals for fun things that we’ll do when we reach certain funding milestones! Our first goal is to reach $250/month, which once we hit, we’ll be covering all our expenses we have as an operating group. Stay tuned to see what the higher level goals will be – there’s some fun stuff in store!

We are so excited to embark on this journey, and we hope you will be too. Rather than launching mini-crowdfunding campaigns like we did with American Whoopee and Cryptmas Carol, we hope that having a Patreon will enable to us receive support on a rolling basis and that will help us make more stuff more often. And help support us as we go on meetings, write pitches, and plan for the future.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us on Patreon!

lies: shipwreckedcomedy: Tomorrow, we sit down for our weirdest…

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

lies:

shipwreckedcomedy:

Tomorrow, we sit down for our weirdest meeting yet. 

Light the Raven Signal!! Something is happening!

I tried not to engage in irresponsible speculation, but, well…

So. What do we know? The script:

Sarah: How did you hear about this guy again?

Sean: Uh, my friend Kyle from fantasy baseball said he helped him out of a jam once.

MK: Isn’t it weird to have an office on a sound stage?

Sarah: I mean at least it’s on a studio lot. That’s gotta be a good sign, right?

[Title]: Who is Shipwrecked meeting?

[Title]: Find out tomorrow! youtube.com/shipwreckedcomedy

Things we know about the person they’re meeting:

1. He’s a he.

2. I don’t think he’s someone famous, since at least in-world they sound like they’re not super-familiar with him already. Sarah asks Sean “how did you hear about this guy again?” I think if he was someone well-known the line would have been worded differently. (”How did you get this meeting again?” “How did you get in touch with this guy?” Something like that.) (But see discussion of floor wax below.)

3. He has an office on a sound stage on a studio lot. (At least it’s a studio lot in-world. Though in reality it could have been shot at the YouTube space. I took a quick look at some of the recent BTS videos on MK’s channel without spotting any obvious correlation with what they’re wearing in this video, though I don’t suppose that means anything.)

The “office” offers some interesting set-dressing clues. The guy they’re meeting has a nice-looking office chair to sit in, while the Shipwreckies are in folding chairs (but nice folding chairs with padded seats):

Let’s take a closer look at the desk:

There’s a green-lampshade lamp and a dark… something… on the edge of the desk closest to Our Heroes (partly obscured by Sarah’s head). There’s a Rolodex. And there are three VHS tapes leaning against the lamp. I can’t quite tell what movies they are, but it would be cool if they were significant.

Here they are zoomed in:

Here they are from the reverse angle:

Anyone recognize any of those?

The other interesting thing on the desk is this: On the far corner (from the Fearless Foursome’s perspective) there’s what looks like a dark case of some kind. The lid is open, and there’s what looks like a card or a piece of paper with writing on it stuck on the lid, slightly askew:

No idea what that is, but I’m guessing it’s involved in the scene we’ll see tomorrow.

Backing up and putting on my speculation hat, what do I think?

I think it’s a new project (obviously). I think whoever comes through the door is going to be someone cool and exciting for Shipwrecked fans (since otherwise it would feel like a bait-and-switch to tease his identity so hard).

Something that would be cool would be if it were a character from a previous Shipwrecked production: Poe (which would take some editing), HG, someone from Gilded Lily…

Hm. OR… he could be a floor wax AND a whipped topping. That is, he could be a real person we’d recognize and be excited to see, but in-character as a fictional character involved in whatever the new project is.

What a fun mystery!
