Today, we bring you another 'Ask Mark Matthew,' containing 100% new material! Let's get started!
TLFScarheart writes: Ha ha! You caught onto my earlier wants [about the contest prize]. Can I send a previously made video with pictures from this year's vacation [for the scrapbook contest]?
Mark: Yes. As long as the video follows the guidelines outlined in the rules, you may submit a previously-made video into the scrapbook contest.
topspin13 writes: [Forest of Fear is a] really great video, but what happened to the werewolf? Did he die in the fire?
Mark: Although it is hard to tell, the werewolf did die in the fire. The idea is that, when the werewolf and monster were fighting, the werewolf pulled the monster into the inferno inside the windmill. While the monster's death is given dramatic emphasis, the werewolf's death is almost forgotten. You can decide for youself if this hinders the film.
Ladondorf C.A. writes: How come Johnny [Thunder] has the wrong pants?
Mark: I think the word wrong is not the right word to use here, since he wears his tan pants in his jungle and winter outfits. However, when we were developing Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo, we wanted to make sure that audiences that are not familiar with Johnny Thunder would not get confused, since he had to switch out torso outfits. By keeping the pants the same, confusion would be minimal. But, since we have recieved a few complaints about this, we might change the pants for Johnny Thunder 4 (Johnny Thunder 3 is already in production, so no changes can be currently made).
Ladondorf C.A. writes: Will the next film in the trilogy be about the Amazon or the Dino Island theme? Plz respond.
Mark: As stated before, Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients will include some characters from the Amazon theme as short appearances, kind of like Babloo and the Preserver in the first two installments. However, the said movie will not actually be based on the Amazon theme (the River Expedition boat, however, will be in the film). As for Dino Island, well, we may have a second trilogy several years down the road, so keep your eyes open!
Ladondorf C.A. writes: Does this mean Pippin is a zombie?
Mark: Far from it! Even though she did die and was resurrected using the Heart of Osiris, she is not a zombie in the traditional sense. Her condition is more like Evlyn O'Connell in The Mummy Returns. She died, but was resurrected whole with spirit, as she was before. When the word zombie is used, something like this comes to mind. Pippin is not a rotting corpse, intent on eating flesh and about to get squashed by Jack McHammer, like that which is illustrated here. Pippin is still herself, with personality, wit, and everything else she had before.
mhutchinson007 writes: How did you get all this music without copyright taking it down?
Mark: I guess it's just dumb luck that only one video was taken down because of this. As for getting the music, we own the CDs. However, to avoid any issues in the future, all music is now original. To hear our first entirely original soundtrack, be sure to watch Com 50 and 007!
That's it for today's edition of Ask Mark Matthew. Don't forget that if you have a question, be sure to send it as a private message to youTube user historylegoman. Until then, we'll be making movies!
