YES! Yes it is true! A few hours ago we just finished the production of the 40 minutes Pilot Episode of the Plustard Series, entitled “Inspector Plustard and the Fallen Groom”.
The episode will be separated, from a story-arc point of view, of the other 12 episodes from the series. It has twice the length of a normal episode (2 x 20 minutes) and it focuses on a single case.
The launch date of the Pilot Episode is December 20th 2012. That is 20 – 12 – 2012.
To show our appreciation towards the fans who helped us along the way by donating through our site, we will privately send them a super secret link to the episode a few days earlier than the launch date. It’s the least we can do
Fear not… the fun doesn’t stop here. We remember how some of you liked our Doctor Who wallpapers sooo we made some Plustard wallpapers especially for you! We made them for 16:9, 16:10 and 4:3 desktops, along with Mobile Phone versions and iPad versions. You can grab them from the gallery below or from THIS ARCHIVE that includes all of them!
…now, Post-Production awaits… time to edit this thing once and for all!
Mihai and Wolfy have something special for you! Have you ever dreamed of writing a script for a movie? Well, maybe not an entire script, but a scene that will eventually be filmed without you making any effort whatsoever?
…well, we dream of that everyday… and we wanted to make your dream and ours come true!
Here’s the deal:
SITUATION: Daytime. Plustard and Johnny are in the Lord’s castle, as guests. They walk around and get lost. Plustard starts searching for Johnny, Johnny starts searching for Plustard. They can interact with the staff (The cook, the old butler, the young butler) but not with the Lord. Also, no criminal involved, no case… just a simple “I got lost” scene.
WRITE: A -10-minutes script for this situation. We aim for funny, but not cliche.
RESTRAINTS: None. If you want them to find each other in the first seconds and THEN have a funny scene with both of them, go for it! Just make sure you don’t write things that would make Gandhi cry.
STYLE: You don’t have to make it look like a Hollywood script. Just make sure we understand who is talking and what is going on on the screen. Hehe… onon.
VERIFY: Please read your script while timing it, to be certain that you cover at least 10 minutes. If you go overboard or write less, no problem… but we aim for 10.
What do you get?
Mihai and Wolfy will read each entry. We are looking for great ideas, not the next Tolstoi, so just do your best. Once we have found a winner, that winner will get:
His/Her scene actually shot and edited into the upcoming Plustard Series. YES! You get to see your work in action!
A VIP pass on the launch of the Pilot Episode. That means you’ll get a super secret link to the Episode before anyone else.
A tshirt… not just any tshirt, a one of a kind tshirt that will be made especially for this contest! It will feature, of course, Johnny and Plustard
Best part – you don’t get to choose between these prizes… you get them ALL!
Submit your scripts to Andrei(-at-) silverwolfpet (-dot-) com, write “Script” in the e-mail subject so I know it is from you!

But wait, there’s more! In order to get your creative sparkly-sparkles… sparkling… we’ll share with you a scene from the upcoming Pilot Episode! Enjoy and good luck!
I dunno what hit us, but we just managed to FINISH the entire script for ALL 12 EPISODES from the upcoming Inspector Plustard Series!!! First draft, of course… but it’s finished! Let’s see some statistics running:

Oh and, in case you were wondering “What does this have to do with SilverWolfPet?” …I was the editor on this project I think you’ll enjoy it!
Mugur left an impression on the fans when his character said the line: “Do you KNOW… the Onion?”, a line which, to our surprise, has been used around us ever since. Such as the situation was in the movie, where Sifonier was harassing Grilaj (Grima Wormtongue), people around us started using the phrase during heated arguments to ease the tension and create laughter.
The line’s origin is not 100% clear since that particular conflict-scene between Grilaj and Mugur was completely improvised. Whatever the reason may be, people loved it and they loved Mugur for it. We’re trying to bring him back on the set!
