MTO: Before the Moon – Trailer

Hey there, Moonbase-ians! We’re a week away from our big Moonbase Theta, Out Season Two Finale, but we’re only eleven days away from another huge date on the MTO Calendar – the launch of our Patreon miniseries, Before the Moon! I’m really excited about this and I wanted to talk it up a little, play you some clips and hopefully get you excited too.

Before the Moon is a six-episode monthly series that will be distributed to our Patreon backers, and it’s going to tell stories of our Moonbase crew back on Earth before they left for their trip above! You’ll hear from every main character and a few special guest stars before we’re done, with some pretty big reveals and touching moments and secret origins, and … why don’t I just play you a little bit of what we’ve got so far! This is from Episode 1, “Revelations,” focused on Michell receiving his assignment:


Episode 2, “Adjustment,” captures Wilder in a literally transformative moment – right after she’s been fitted for her new arm! Here’s a bit of the conversation with her physical therapist, voiced by Claudia Elvidge of ‘The Beacon’:


We’re actually just in the process of rehearsing and revising the third episode, “Where the Heart,” which is focused on Roger and Alex, finally seeing them together, at home with the dogs. It’s going to be really lovely and admittedly a bit painful, and I recorded our first rehearsal so you could at least get a little taste:


And we’ve got so much more from there! We’ll see Ashwini pulling all zir plans together, Nessa and Elena on a lovely, private date together, and the introduction of Dr. Ringling to Dr. Day! And it’s possible there might be a secret seventh episode before we’re done … where’s the audio version of that eyes emoji when you need it?

It’s an exciting thing and we’re putting a lot of time and work into it. Eventually, there will be a chance for everyone to hear these episodes, but we’re making them for our Patreon backers, and each episode will only be available there at the $5 and up level for the first six months of release. We’re hoping to grow our Patreon support even between seasons – we’re still paying a few bills from Season 2 out of pocket, and there’s a lot we want to build to for Season 3 – this is the way we’re saying thank you to the folks who are making it possible to keep things going, to pay our actors and creators for all their work.

So there we go – the first episode drops December 26th; you can find a full schedule and more info and who the guest stars will be all on our website, monkeymanproductions dot com, and you can join our backers at Patreon. It’s going to be a deep dive into the history of a really special cast of characters – I hope you’ll join us for Before the Moon!
