About MeatSpace

MeatSpace, Kevin and TobyWhen it was first conceived in early 2007, “MeatSpace” was to be a primarily topical, sarcastic and humorous look at “geeky culture” be it video gaming, internet, comics or TV related.

When I pitched the concept and pilot episode to ABC TV* for their nationally broadcasted video game show “Good Game” the focus narrowed to Video gaming specifically.
When the commissioned run ended after episode 6, MeatSpace was free to expand once more to a broader range of subject matter, but still all about the geeky stuff, because… well… “write what you know” ;)

As for the name…

MeatSpace : (noun, informal) the physical world, as opposed to cyberspace or a virtual environment.
Representative of the fact we experience the characters cyberspace related moments by witnessing them in Meatspace.

    So glad to see this coming back. This was the series that made me want to produce content for the internet, and hopefully soon it will happen but in the meantime I have my lego animation fix.

    BLUNTMATION FTW!!!

    Blunty, looking forward to seeing your stopmotion vids again. you were one of the few to get me into legoanimation. I hope this project works out smoothly and non frustrating. If you want someone to revamp your “Meatspace theme song” I could be of help :) Long live Blunty!
