The creative team behind the acclaimed web-based serial Dead End Days invites you to the table of an offbeat trio of roommates as they congregate every Monday morning to confront spurned lovers, questionable employment, homicidal cereal, and each other - all over a good nosh.
Part character study, part social satire, and part poignant reflection on our own daily grind, this ambitious live-action comedy chronicles the weekly trials and tribulations of three average twentysomethings as they stumble through life wearing sensible footwear. Join Rocket Ace every Monday morning for Cerealized, now part of your unbalanced breakfast.
When do new episodes come out?
Every monday morning ~ 3am EST, come rain or shine.
Can I watch the show as a video podcast?
Yes! The subscription feed address is: http://www.cerealized.com/podcast/podcast.xml
What's that catchy theme song?
The "Cerealized" Theme song is "Paul's 52nd Street Theme" by Paul Fisher and the Mulligan Kings. You can download a full version of the song on their Garageband site. CD's and other cool Paul Fisher info is available from Fishtone Music. And they're Canadian too, eh?
How long will "Cerealized" run for?
The show right now is open ended. Unlike Dead End Days, there's not really a continuing plot, as it's more gag based. However, as with all our internet shows, it won't run forever - they're designed to have a finite run.
This isn't as good as "Days", why did you stop doing that?
The story ended.
How many people are involved with the show? And how long does it take?
Each episode involves roughly a dozen people from writing through post production. The writing team cranks out four scripts a month, then we shoot an entire batch in one long day. Editing and post production takes another 15-20 hours per episode.
Who pays you to do this?
Unfortunately, plotting a global media takeover via Rocket Ace Moving Pictures takes a great amount of capital, so everyone involved with "Cerealized" has day jobs.
Mpeg4 files suck, why don't you release the episodes in DivX, Xvid, Quicktime, Windows Media, h.264...?
There's no way we can support every codec out there, and most of the "enthusiast" codecs are out of the range of the casual user. Mpeg4, on the other hand, is supported out of the box by Quicktime and Videolan, is a reasonably open standard, works as-is on most portable video players, and provides a reasonable size-to-performance ratio. Suck it up.
Can I have permission to use "Cerealized" in my project / presentation / film / music video / artistic creation?
Yup. The Internet-distributed version of "Cerealized" is released under a creative commons license, so you are free to copy, burn, download, share, perform, cut up, mash, re-purpose, or re-mix the show however you'd like. We'd love it if you let us know when you do, though!
Where did you get all that crazy stock footage?
All the 40s, 50s, and 60s footage is from the Prelinger Archives. Rick Prelinger is a man among men, and if I ever were independantly wealthy, I would spend all my days watching the hours and hours of classic films there.
Hey, my question isn't answered here!
