Build Your Own 'Laser of Doom' for $50...

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Brent Altomare at Groovy Like A Movie. You may have noticed his comments on many of our blog posts, so I think it's safe to say that he is addicted to what we have in development and will likely be a founding member of some type of 12-step program.

Anyway, I digress. Brent's email contained a link to a video hosted on Indy Mogul titled, "Backyard FX: Giant Death Ray". The email also contained the comment, "this sounded very DVK to me."

Now, I'm not sure just how much information my co-conspirator, Michael Callahan, has given him about the series, but the ironic thing is that the pilot episode (and even our virals that lead up into the pilot) have to do with death rays... except that we call them something slightly different. It's already been announced that the pilot is titled "Dr. von Kaiser and the Jade Laser of Doom", so that's got to give you some sense of plot for the episode.

After reviewing the video on Indy Mogul, I agree that it is VERY much DvK. Not only does it slightly resemble what we're putting together in development, but it's actually right around the price range of what Dr. von Kaiser would be able to afford: $50.

I'll let you see the video for yourself. Perhaps, after watching, you'll be able to build a "laser of doom" of your own and compete against Drs. von Kaiser, Nemesis and Sapphire in the industrious competition of global domination.
