Matte Painting for Marketplace scene

Castle Matte painting Mantecoza

 

I know you’ve all been patiently waiting and we’ve been very quiet.  Mantecoza is deep in to post production and here’s a sneak peak at some of the matte painting work going in to transforming the market place!

Mantecoza the Movie!

We revealed some fun things and made a big announcement at Phoenix Comic Con this year!

With almost the entire cast and crew on hand we were happy to share some of the visual effects work going on in post production.  Including pop up books and air ships and entire matte paintings of castles sharing the scenes with our actors!

But perhaps the biggest announcement of all was that Mantecoza will now be produced as a feature length movie!

Keep an eye open for continuing updates on our progress!!

Getting to Know the Cast and Crew of Mantecoza – Toby Ambrose

Let’s get to know our leading man Toby Ambrose a little better!

Describe yourself in one word: Frisky

What was your favorite book growing up and why?  TV Guide.  It was way before cable and those nifty onscreen programming guides.  I know it’s not a book but I didn’t develop a love for literature until later in life. 

Did you have a hero you emulated?  Not really.  As a kid my heroes were rock musicians and television/film actors.  I wasn’t blessed with the gift of music and I was too shy as a kid to pursue performing.  Making up for it now though!

If you had to drink only one drink and nothing else what else would it be?  Water!  So exciting, isn’t it?!?

If someone who knew nothing about Mantecoza asked you to describe it what would you tell them? Office Space meets Lord of the Rings as a sketch on SNL.

Without revealing any details, but knowing how the story goes, what encouraging word would you give to the Sebastian King of episode 1: Chenna can’t stay this grouchy forever.  Right?!?

Do you think you are at all like the character of Sebastian?  Hmmm, a software engineer who loves his mother and Lord of the Rings?  Yes, we definitely have more than a few things in common.  

Do you have a funny story from the set you can share?  Technically it wasn’t from the from the set but when we met at Kate’s theatre for the first read through, the floor had just been painted with a high-gloss black finish.  Tommy and I immediately kicked off our shoes and tested the friction coefficient at full speed.  Didn’t take long before we were doing our own Blades of Glory impression.  

You have 10 seconds left to say anything – what would it be?  Thank you for supporting Mantecoza!!!
