The Con Men ep. 9 - Capricon 35

It's time for another episode of The Con Men! In this outing we infiltrate Capricon 35 in Wheeling, IL. Con Men historians may remember that we were there for our 3rd episode last year.

This year we did something different. We went a little more in depth so this episode is a bit longer than the others. We spoke to MARGARET WEIS, LESTER SMITH and MATT FORBECK about their careers, writing and designing games. Wanna know what Margaret Weis said about thinking like a kender? Click the image below or click right here!

You may have noticed that we now post behind the scenes clips from our episodes. Hey, we're fun people! Wanna know how fun? Clicketh the image below or clicketh right here!

As always, we hope you enjoy our work and we thank you for your support. You are why we do this.

The Con Men ep. 7 - Windycon 41

Greetings! We come to you now with the latest installment of The Con Men, shot at Windycon 41- Chicagoland's oldest sci-fi, literary convention. This event marks the 1 year anniversary of The Con Men! In this episode we interview Lauren Faits, the author behind Geek Girl Chicago. We also catch up with a Mensa representative and some Klingons from last year. And there's a cat. We've had a blast shooting this series. We've met a lot of new friends and we look forward to seeing what happens in season 2.

As an added bonus, here's the extended interview we conducted with Lauren Faits. Check it out. She's got a lot of great things to say. As always, thanks for reading. Thanks for watching! You're the reason we do this. - Jason

V is for Villains Music Video & Behind the Scenes Photos!

Hiya internet! Over the past few weeks we've been working with a band called V is for Villains on a music video for their track, Pink Elephants on Parade. If that sounds familiar it may be because the song is from Dumbo. That's right. They updated and metal-ized it.  We first met the Villains while shooting our Con Alt Delete episode of The Con Men. Then we interviewed them later in our Acen episode. This music video gave us the opportunity to do something really trippy. We hope you enjoy! This was shot entirely at Fear City Chicago haunted house. Big thanks to that whole crew for providing such an amazing location. For added fun, I've included a few behind the scenes photos courtesy of James Jones and our own Paul Lyzun. Prepare for mind warp...

The Con Men ep. 5 - Acen [video]

It happened again. We woke up at a convention with a bag of camera gear and the uncontrollable urge to shoot a web show. This time we found ourselves at Anime Central. We got great interviews. We shot a whole lot of awesome, creative cosplay stuffffff. Like Fallout? Venture Brothers? The Warriors? You will LOVE what's inside.

Ten Wing Media store opens. You'll never believe what happens next.

Hey folks! Jason here. After some technical gymnastics, the Ten Wing Media store is now open for business. This page is where we will peddle our films and ebooks. Right off the bat, we're offering four of our films as digital downloads. They are:  Without Charity, The Drone, Beyond the Basement Door and The Seashell. In the upcoming phase 2, we will offer physical products for those interested. Take a look around. Anything we receive from these are turned right back around for future projects, so you're really doing us a solid. 

Other news? VFX is still underway for Citizen in the Temple. There are just a lot of shots. The sound design has begun and the score is complete! I'm working on some other really cool stuff related to the film but I can't give out the details right now. Soon...soon... :)

I don't know if you saw my previous posts about participating in NaNoWriMo last November but I got that done and I'm moving into the revision phase. I've already spent one entire weekend hidden away at a Red Roof Inn, slaving over the insane stream of consciousness first draft. My project was transferring The Drone and teasing it out into a full length novel. It's been great fun so far, expanding the world and solidifying details about the planet Eolan. If you want a taste of the movie and hints to what the book is about, check out the trailer here


We're keeping busy and there will be a lot more to discuss soon. Chad has a very promising ebook on the horizon and Paul is getting ready to his the festival circuit with his doc. I'll get comments on their adventures and be back before you know it. Thanks for reading!


Ten Wing Media Hits Con Alt Delete!

We are excited by the response we've gotten from our debut episode of The Con Men. We reached 1,000 views in just under two weeks. We are very pleased that people seem to get the tone that we are going for. Now we're excited to announce we're shooting our second episode at the first year of Con Alt Delete in Lisle, IL this weekend! If you'll be there, come say hi to us and if you'd like to be interviewed about your fandom experiences, we can hook you up. Here's the official site for the con.

We'll probably be dressed in something like this. The new gear my wife, Erin, hooked us up with! 

Thanks for reading!


The Con Men ep. 1 - Windy Con 201

A recent endeavor that has kept us busy is a new web series called The Con Men. We attend conventions, we record interviews and present it to you for the low low price of free. The series explores fandom at conventions from the inside along with some personal reflections. Below is our first episode, recorded at Windy Con 40 in Lombard, IL. We've got plans to attend a couple more cons in the upcoming months and we're continuously refining our process. Take a look. We'd love to hear what you think. If you do watch, thanks for it.
