Mark's Tanking Return
We made it through the lockdown and while there is no guarantee we won’t face another lockdown the future, we are back up and running. We really hope you and your loved ones are doing ok and we really hope that our new content will take your mind off, even for a moment, the troubles we are all facing in 2020.
The question before we resumed filming was who should feature in our first release since the lockdown? Getting back up running is not easy, even at the best of times, so we knew it had to be someone we’ve have worked with before and who knows how our shoots worked. This was especially important as we implement new measures to work under new COVID-19 conditions. Jon? No that would be too easy and rather lazy. Mark Anthony came up a few times in our initial discussions and we thought, yeah why not!? So we gave Mark a call and he was more than happy to shoot with us again, more than five years since his last Splat! Show appearance.
Re-starting production was a challenge, especially now running under new COVID-19 secure conditions, but we did it and while there were a few hiccups along the way, it was great to be back shooting again.
So please enjoy the first Splat! Show release for nearly five months. Mark and the team had a great time producing the show and we really hope you enjoy Mark’s Tanking Return.
Oh, and if you love THICK gunge? Then you will be pleased to hear that everything produced at this shoot (including the extra features not part of this show, which you can find below) featured some of our THICKEST gungings for years!
Mark’s Tanking Return Features The Following…
The Gunge Tank Interview: Five years is a long time, so we chat to Mark about what he has been up since his last Splat! Show appearance five years ago. Fun fact, while Mark has been tanked in our Gunge Tank before, the tank actually had a smaller capacity back then, so this was Mark’s first time expereicneing the full power of The Gunge Tank. Was Mark impressed? You betcha! Mark get’s his first Tanking with some blue and pink (very thick) in the Gunge Tank and while the main camera failed just before the gunging, we managed to successfully salvage the footage from the live camera feed. Not ideal but we kept in Mark’s clean down as a bonus too.
Mark’s Lucky Or Mucky. This shoot is not a normal shoot for a number of reasons, we have already mentioned that getting started again always comes with a few caveats. But we didn’t want this to effect the quality of the shoot in any way. So we got Mark to play The Splat! Show classic that is Lucky or Mucky. It’s a game he has never played before and also gave us the chance to test out our new zoom lens which gives a close up view of Mark while playing the game without having to sacrifice the quality using digital zoom. So we have provided both versions with this download. One from the normal camera and then another version shot with the new zoom lens. Mark gets tanked twice in this round of Lucky Or Mucky too!
True Or False Splattter . After playing one of our old classics during the last round, Mark takes on a newish game for the final part of this special release. True or False Splatter, where every wrong answer is greeted with a Splat, or rather we should say a spray from The Gunge Blaster. Just how messy will Mark get before the end of the round and will he manage to escape the final tanking of the day!?
