Q

About how much time do you put into SMBC theater? How much for writing? How much for filming?


The Theater responded on 03/19/2013

(James) I'm the co-creator, co-writer, and Executive Producer of SMBC Theater and Artistic Director of THe Theater channel, so I put in 50 - 90 hours a week depending on the week. Jon Brence is our star / business demon and puts in a TON of time behind the scenes. There's a rotating group of folks who put in 10 - 12 hour days on weekends or in sporadic bursts behind the scenes - and Actors often give up their entire weekend to even longer work days than their day job. We're SO GRATEFUL you've begun to give us the ability to compensate them for their time.

Q

what inspired you guys to begin?

(James) Zach and I wanted to do a sketch show since we were in high school. But it turns out you need skill and money and people to make movies. In 2009 we thought we had just slightly less than we needed - which was good enough to start so long as we hurt ourselves a little.

Q

If i have no Question, do i still have to ask a question?

IT IS LAW.

Q

Why do you need so much info?

A

We want to be able to keep in touch with our fans without paying a major third party middleman FOR VICTORY. We'll never sell or share your information with anyone else.

Q

Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi?

(JAMES) Empire Strikes Back, but I also love Ewoks as I was born in 1981.

Q

Just a comment. Hard to pick between Zach and James, but I figure Zach's Kickstarter's always prevail, so I have to choose James.
BTW, any chance J.P. might start writing for Continuum too? Good show
