Blackster Virtual Community
Blackster Virtual Community, or BVC, is a new virtual series network (sister network to MZP) created by A. J. Black (aka Blackster) . It made its international debut on January 1, 2006. The Chiefs of Staff at BVC are MZP regulars Paul Robinson, Michael Jay, and JT Vaughn.
As of 2008, BVC is officially dead in the water. A nice experiment it was, but ultimately it fell apart not from a lack of talent, but rather a lack of experience in running a network and lack of the time of which such an endeavor would require. However at least two of the networks shows now live on at a new and upcoming network, GypsyVerse Productions. (Desperate Screenwriters and Threadbare)
The International Premiere
On January 1, 2007, the network premiered internationaly. This included the opening of public access to the forums and official website in anticipation of the network's Spring Season 2007, and the release of 007: Silverknight.
Merger with Sayber Space
Sayber Space Productions, a virtual production house run by JJ Estes, was merged into BVC in January 2007. It has become a subdivision of the larger community. Sayber Space maintained it's running series and staff as well as it's individual label while producing its series exclusively for the BVC.
Unlike MZP, BVC plans to have an extensive virtual movie slate. A blockbuster season is planned for Summer 2007, after BVC's Spring 2007 season.
BVC's Spring Season 2007 began on January 5, 2007. This is BVC's first season of virtual series, which means all aired shows are series premieres.
