JayJay Here. Back when Jim and I were working on Broadway Comics a Canadian TV show called The Anti Gravity Room came to film a segment with us. The episode is about how comics are made. I found an old video tape of the show a while back and got it transferred to DVD. It has Rob Liefeld and Ty Templeton. Jim and I are in the middle part (Part 2) of the show. The last part has an interesting bit about how comics are printed.
One little personal aside… the day they filmed this I met and ended up dating the cute sound guy who was working on the show. I later talked him into doing a film he’d been offered called Chasing Amy, though he hadn’t heard of Kevin Smith, and I went down to New Jersey to be an extra in one of the convention scenes! I couldn’t get our Broadway Comics booth to bring since it was being shipped to a real convention, but I borrowed David and Maria Lapham’s Stray Bullets banner and “worked” the booth in the scene. One more connection… I made friends with another extra on the set, an indi comic book guy named Mike Mongillo, who has become an independent film director and I’ve worked on two of his films, Being Michael Madsen and Welcome to Earth, and designed his web site.
