( mr. boop / heartbreak high / mariology )

My name is Alec Robbins. I work in the TV industry, mostly at Abso Lutely Productions. I've been a part of shows like IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang!, Netflix's I Think You Should Leave, Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, and TBS' unaired The Dress Up Gang. On my own time, I make a lot of different stuff.
(You also might know me from my comic, Mr. Boop.)

Mr. Boop is a daily comic strip I draw over on Twitter about how I'm married to Betty Boop. It's all based on my true life being married to Betty Boop.

LiVE FOR THE FANTASY is a music video I directed for my friend Ash Nerve. This was a very ambitious and post-heavy music video!! It also feels pretty illegal!!!! I'm very proud of it.

Mariology is a comedic ten-part video game talk show that I host alongside Lexi Langill and Heather Capps. Together, we sort through over 112 Mario games and attempt place them all on one single, coherent timeline.

Show Me Less Like This is a hand-printed Risograph comic I made on our RZ220UI machine. It's about a dystopian space colony where the government is run by an all-knowing algorithm. The comic is only available in print form here for $10, limited run of 100. I cut, folded, and stapled each comic myself!

Like The Tide is a music video I directed for Boy in the Water. I recommend listening to their full album, vicious like the tide. I hope you like the music video!

Burger King Official Role-Playing Podcast (or "BKORPP" for short) is a comedic actual-play role-playing podcast that I play with my friends Ronnie Dezsi, Jason Emmons, and Lauren Hoepner. You can find it anywhere you find podcasts. It's one of my favorite things I get to make and be a part of!

Heartbreak High is a game I made about breaking up with everyone in your high school. It's an arcade-style spin on the classic Japanese dating sim genre. This is one of the best things I've made, if I'm being honest! I wrote, illustrated, and programmed the whole thing. It takes less than an hour to play and only costs $5. You can get it on Steam or It's also got a killer soundtrack by Ronnie Dezsi.

Teenstream Theater is an internet-based performance space where we stream curated videos, all by our friends and peers: films, music, poetry, games, home movies, and anything else we can think of. Sometimes we flip the switch and live-stream things like game shows, concerts, or readings.

Alec's Commentaries are my very real director commentary tracks for all of the famous big budget Hollywood movies I've directed. Putting these online is definitely NOT illegal in any way and there is absolutely NO REASON for you to sue me if your name is Steven Spielberg or Adam Sandler or any other famous Hollywood person. It's FINE that I make these and I should be ALLOWED TO DO SO WITHOUT LEGAL RECOURSE BEING TAKEN AGAINST ME.

What If Tom Was One Of Us is a short 3-episode web series I wrote and directed about what if Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise got plastic surgery to become more like a "normal person." The production values turned out really nice because we borrowed a camera from a big TV show, which I wasn't supposed to tell anyone. Whoops! I think it's something you might enjoy!

Giving Grief is a talk show where I brought on folks I admire and tried to get them to cry. Sometimes they tried to get me to cry. We only made five episodes, but one day I would like to do more of these!

Good Bit is an independent video game label - Heartbreak High was my first commercial game. We also produce some game-related web shows like Mariology and an infrequent live game show in Los Angeles, CA.

The Teenagers Company is a loose art collective and independent video and zine label. It's where I put films I make and where I host experimental web art made with friends and collaborators.
