Happy Birthday MGS: Philanthropy!

September 27, 2010

This is the first anniversary since the online release of MGS: Philanthropy on September 27th, 2009.

During this year, many things have happened. First of all, we would like to thank you all for the warm reception of our movie, for the interviews, for the hundreds of e-mails you sent us. It is amazing to see the impact that the movie had on the Net, and not only… It’s thanks to people like you, who have downloaded, shared, watched and talked about our movie, that we could reach a lot of faraway places in the world with our production!

We also want to thank all the team that worked on the project: everyone contributed to make the MGSP adventure a gorgeous journey together!

Ok, now one of the most frequent questions you are asking us is: “And now? What’s next? When are you going to release the sequels?”

We already have the scripts ready for MGS: Philanthropy Part 2 and 3, and we are working on a “long-term” plan to turn them into reality but… not right now! After so many years of non-profit works, we really need some time to concentrate on becoming a real production studio, turning our passion into our profession.

So, while the “long-term” plan on completing MGS: Philanthropy becomes true, we are focusing our attention on several original projects by Hive Division.

The good news is that the Hive Division team is still unite and kicking (and growing, too) and willing to go on with independent productions! Right now, we are working on THREE original projects, all produced by Hive Division: one of this projects will be shortly announced on our official website!

I cannot disclose anything more than this, but I assure you that we will keep you updated on our official website (http://www.HiveDivision.net).

So, if you loved MGS: Philanthropy and you are interested in the next productions by Hive Division… You know where to find us!

Happy birthday MGS: Philanthropy, and thanks again to you all for following us in this amazing adventure!

  1. Ciao complimenti ho apena finito di vedere il film MGSP che posso dire: Non vedo l’ora di vedere il seguito MGSP2 sono curiosa! bellissimo film meglio di tati film Hollywoodiany con tanti soldi e di solito poche idee. Voi siete un esempio di bravura con pochi soldi avete fatto un film semplicemete magnifico che mi ha tenuta incollata al televisione come non mai. Ottima l’idea di mettere le voci originali del videogioco Snake ha una credibiltà incredibile sia visiva, complementi all’attore il miglior esempio di sosia vivente di un personaggio dei videogiochi, auditiva! Ancora tanti complimeti aspetto con ansia di vedere qualche vostra nuova pubblicazione, magari perchè no! Al cinema! Lo meritereste veramente!

  2. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  7. Da buon appassionato e conoscitore della saga non posso che inginocchiarmi a questo splendido film che voi avete realizzato, avrei speso volentieri i soldi di un biglietto per vederlo e ne sarei uscito fiero di averlo fatto. davvero molto bravi, siete grandiosi, GRAZIE PER AVERCI REGALATO CIO’.

    Credetemi non vedo l’ora del seguito, l’ultima volta che ho avuto questa sensazione di impazienza era quando scoprii per la prima volta che stessero facendo Avengers, da quanto è bello MGSP non mi sorprende che mi dia le stesse emozioni :)

  9. absolutly amazing work i have such admiration for your passion to bring the look and feel of the games to a movie and a no budget movie at that. i just hope you have time to finish the story but good luck with all your other projects you rarely see such raw talent without a massive studio budget

    YOU GUYS ROCK :)

  10. great work. I still have problems thinking this is a no budjet movie, the quality is great. I have heard of a movie from kojima for years, but nothing’s coming. And I wonder if they could do any better job than what you did. And I wonder what you would be able to do, if you had a budjet !!!
    Please don’t let it die… get the rights to sell the next movie and amaze us !!

  14. Happy second birthday!

    I am getting into the MGS series at the moment and am amazed by how good your choice for the actor of Solid Snake was! Especially the voices for Snake and Otacon, awesome!

    I really hope you will continue with the story, you captured the mood and essence of the games very well! <3

    Comment by Grace — September 27, 2011 @ 19:15:05

  15. Un grand BRAVO pour la réalisation de ce film, malgré quelques différences linguistique (Anglais-Français) ce film est tout simplement une merveille audio-visuel pour un film a petit budget.
    J’attend avec impatience la seconde partie de Métal Gear Solid philanthropy ….

    Du bon boulot

    Comment by rorolatouf — September 26, 2011 @ 20:38:33

  16. Wow that movie is great! I’m desperately awaiting the next part… I hope so much that you guys will accomplish this project.

    I’ve never expected to see a MGS-Movie… you fulfilled a dream of mine! Always wanted a MGS-Movie but there never was one before. Great thanks… I love MGS, it’s simply the best game ever made… and with the best story ever written.

    It’s an honour to watch fanwork like this! Can’t tell you enough how awesome this project is! Can you guys really imagine, what a great favour you are doing to all MG-Fans? ;P Keep up the awesome work!

  18. Grandi ragazzi, avete reso fiero un’altro appassionato di MSG…
    Spero che uscirà la seconda parte al piu presto, cavolo non posso crederci che abbiate fatto un film cosi spettacolare e dettagliato con soli 10.000 $.
    Bravissimi, mi cimenterò a vedere la vostra versione di Star Wars al piu presto..
    Ancora un’applauso.

  24. ciao ragazzi
    sinceramente non conosco il videogioco, ma su consiglio di yotobi, un youtuber che fa recensioni di film (http://www.youtube.com/user/yotobi ) e tra queste recensione c’è anche il vostro lungometraggio, mi sono incuriosita e ho deciso di guardarlo.
    beh devo dire che siete stati fantastici!!

    THUMBS UP FOR MGS Philantropy

    Comment by Luis — February 12, 2011 @ 12:10:06

  27. An absolute joy to watch! Top-notch voice acting and writing and great visual effects – the interaction between the characters and the overall atmosphere really emulated the MGS mood well. Best of wishes to your studio!

    Comment by Gabriel — January 27, 2011 @ 11:59:32

  28. Oh my God….. This is like a dream come true. I remember being 5 and watching my father play through the first MGS. I loved the game even though I was too young to understand the controls… Now I’ve played through all 4. I think this is better than what any “professional” actors could’ve done, because you guys actually like the roles. You’re an inspiration.

    Comment by DaSH — January 15, 2011 @ 11:28:51

  29. I kust love Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy, congratulatios to you all.

  30. Hello, i saw this movie in january of this year, and i found it amazing, really great job, it’s fan art.

    Few months ago i bought ps3 and the first game i decided to buy was mgs4: guns of the patriots, and i loved it.

    Now i’m downloading this movie again!

    CONGRATULATIONS GUYS, CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE SECOND PART.

    Comment by Verónica — December 26, 2010 @ 01:34:09

  31. Glad to see that you guys didn’t “ditched” us! and even more glad to hear that you guys are working on part 2! When my friend showed me this movie, I could have swore that it was an original Kojima directed movie from 2008/7. But hot damn its a fan based movie and they arent even payed for it altough I would have definitely did to watch it! If you guys are planning on becoming an official movie industry, you are on the right and mighty track!

    Comment by Jdude — December 20, 2010 @ 02:38:36

  32. I don’t know what you are going to do guys but find a way to clone Giacomo and the master Kojima because the world needs more of them. And one more thing. Many congratulations for the first part. Do your best for the other two parts. That’s why we keep on living.

    Comment by Chris — December 2, 2010 @ 12:57:53
