Technically apparatus theory is derived from psychoanalytic film theory or something like that, but anyway, apparatus theory was one of the dominant approaches to film theory in the 1970’s, though it has since been fallen out of favor. A lot of it has to do with the phallus and castration, and I’m not even making this shit up.
(I’m taking a Moving Images Media Studies class right now. It’s working its way into the strip, apparently.)
Multiplex 10 is here!
Although Multiplex 10 has ended, an animated prequel/reboot called Multiplex 10 was funded through Kickstarter in 2017 and is NOW AVAILABLE for rent or purchase on Vimeo On Demand, Amazon Video, and elsewhere! And an all-new, irregularly-updated Multiplex 10 web series (set after the short film) recently launched on YouTube! Learn more about the web series on the official Multiplex 10 website!
