     Today we bring you another 'Ask Mark Matthew,' containing 100% new material! Let's get started!

TLFScarheart writes: exactly did steve help [in Alpha Team: Mission Deep Jungle]? Great plan but maybe show that? Otherwise great movie! I like the idea of them facing people other than Ogel.
Mark: Basically, the mysterious helper inside the orb factory that grabs Crunch's explosives and throws them into the orb chamber is Steve Kenlow. He's also the person that Radia sees out of the corner of her eye when the team first arrives in Brazil.

VezonWireless writes: You know, it's rather interesting. Despite apparently having no basis in LEGO
canon (the only time they have been voiced is in the PC game, where they are given deep "dumb brute"-esque voices), it seems that Ogel Drones always have high-pitched and/or nasally voices in Alpha Team brickfilms, including this one, the ones by legofanatic123, and even an unfinished one by yours truly back in 2004. I wonder where we all got this notion...?
Mark: Um, maybe it's because, since they have skeleton heads, they only have naval cavities instead of proper noses, making them talk funny. Or maybe we're all trying to be funny. Or...I just have no idea.

Gabriel Brunswick writes: is there gonna be a new movie of Jonny thunder
Mark: Yes. After Alpha Team: Mission Deep City is released, we're going to be releasing a fourth Johnny Thunder film titled Johnny Thunder and the Wonders Beneath the Waves.

Lord Ed Entertainment writes: Dear Mustache Manic's I would like to know if we could do a collaborative project. I have a camera and Lego's to animate with. Please let me know if your interested. -Dunespire Entertainment
Mark: Yes! We've been looking to work with other studios ever since our last collaborative film, New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable, was released in 2013. We'll see which of our upcoming films you can work with us on, or if there's one or more upcoming films you are developing that you want us to help with.

Jack Maroney writes: Can I put a little bit of blood in the video or does it have to stay completely "kid friendly?" And also could I make a story based on Harry Cane's experience in the Vietnam War [for "The Canon that Time Forgot]?
Mark: First, a little blood is okay. Second, while I would say that Harry Cane is one of our more developed characters, a story about him during the Vietnam War would work as an entry. However, we encourage that participants take an undeveloped character (like Said Ahma for example), and make a film about that character's past.

     That's it for today's edition of Ask Mark Matthew! Don't forget that if you have a question, post it where ever we'll be able to see it and respond. Until then, we'll be making movies!


  1. In responce to Verison's question:

    I voiced one of the drones in legofanatic123's videos and I have three theories to why this is. 1 is because the drones are meant to be "mindless" and "bumbling and giving them brute voices may have made this effect a bit harder to pull off. Second is because characters with "brute voices are meant to sounds big an intimidating. Take crunch for example. He looks like a normal minifig. It's his deep voice that carries the idea that he's buff and hefty. The third theory is so that the drones could be either gender. There are indeed female drones (legofanatic123 actually made a female drone who managed to reverse her affects, but she never made it into the videos sadly). the squeaky voices disguise the gender a bit so you can give them either gender you want.

    1. Sorry bad typo. Meant to say in response to Verzon's question.
