WE GET SIGNAL: Cliff Simon in ALL YOUR BASE reboot  
Come on, y'all. You KNOW you wanna chip in to see animated versions of Ba'al (Cliff Simon), the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker), and Commander Ivanova (Claudia Christian) confront Davros (Terry Malloy) in a reboot of ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US, the great-grandmother of all Internet memes.

[Originally posted by obsessivemuch1 at *signal boost* ]






talcMedia describes ALL YOUR BASE as "A monumental stupendous animated comedy parody mock trailer state of the art flat-two-dimensional animated short film in full Technicolor® and, even, Original Soundtrack!", which neatly encapsulates their off-the-wall sense of humour. Then again, since the thing exists down to Colin and Lizzie overacting, perhaps that's not such a surprise.

Yes, it's bonkers nonsense, but D:I6 is very serious and won't get off the ground unless AYB does. It's a bit of geeky fun, using one of the oldest memes around. If you don't know, "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" comes from the European Sega Mega Drive version of Zero Wing. The original Japanese was poorly translated with hysterical results. People pasted quotes on screencaps, posted them on the internet, and a cult meme was born.

For more information on AYB, visit the website or the Kickstarter page.

I still reckon he looks like a vampire...

OMG I'd totally watch a vampire show if Cliff (or Claudia) were in it!

Just paid rent today, and am hoping I can fund the project by next week after I get some clients to pay their invoices. :)

I do think talcMedia should have waited until January, as I think the nearness of Christmas is possibly putting some people off, but it is what it is. I've pledged as much as I can, now I'm just trying to drum up support. Any boost is very much appreciated.

Can'r shake the image of him as a vamp now. I'm doomed.
