Random news

Well, as the holidays come close, production is slowing down a little bit. I am still trying to release something before christmas though. I am saying right now though that the early months of 09 are going to be crazy with everything that I have planned, so I may up delaying a series for a while. I will probably end up holding a vote later on or something. Anyway, I also want to mention that I was invited to Halo Community Live as a special guest by MCQ22. Check out the event details here http://www.halobusters.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1118

Anyway, I only need about 50 some more Subscribers to get to 1000 before new years. So please tell your friends so stevie why and hershmek will do something crazy.

I think that is about it, until next time. Happy Holidays and such.

I tried an interesting approach to a short this week. I had planned to have this much different, but after hearing the musical piece, I had to change my plan.

Sunday, December 14, 2008


Ya, I just changed the setup of the blog here a little bit so the embeded widescreen videos can fit.
Thats about it though, I put together a little promo for the forum that I feel like posting, but read the post below if you already havent. hmmmmm.


Well, with the Holidays Approaching, production might slow down a bit, but that doesnt mean I dont have a few projects already done. Anyway, I just posted that forum promotion machinima which included stevie and shafty being chroma keyed into COD4. Im too lazy to post the link at the moment, but its on my channel if you want to see it.
On another note, you will see proof that zephyr(one of my cod4 shorts), was on the front page of machinima.com's youtube channel.
Anyway, Thats about it, Be expecting another COD4 video shortly and the suppressor season 2 teaser is almost finished too.

Duel with the Duo

Well, our friends over at the Duo group jsut realeased a brand new short with incredible editing. You may notice that some of the spartans seemed to be incredibly smooth and that some of those rockets were shot so buetiful and presice. Thats because I had 4 controllers hooked up to my xbox to help them out. Let me just say that those shots with the vehicles moving forward were harder than they looked.(It was the sand. Well here it is:
And when you get the chance, check out their sight,http://www.theduogroup.com/

Cool New Project Announced

Ok, So I have started work on a new Halo 3 short Machinima. Expect it to be action packed with special effects that Ive never done before using a new program. It should be very interesting. It might take a while, but it will be worth it. And for cod4, If you didnt already know, I am going to make a Robot Donkey/SNGD Christmas special starring all of your favorite stars(I call them that to make them feel special). Well, thats about it for now.

Ok, Lots to say

Ok,This is gonna be intresting. Ok, First off, I need to explain stuff about the COD4 Series and everything else thats caught my attention. The COD4 Series that I am planning, Is gonna be a stab at something that has not been done in COD4. I am gonna make sure it has a good plot and that way I will be happier with it. This may mean that It will be produced sparingly, but episodes will average around 10 minutes. As some may have guessed, Last thought was really the first teaser for it, but I never really had a solid story Idea for a series until now. This will however fall around the same time as suppressor starts coming out, So I will trade off on them to make sure my COD4 and Halo Fans are satisfied. I do not plan to do anything major until after the new year, but I will be releasing Halo and COD4 Shorts along the way. These will keep everybody entertained until I start off for the new year. Anyway, Another thing I Would like to say is that I will be Making a Christmas Special that will be filmed in COD4 with all the clan members. This will include skits and other comedy things, but I have no idea what might happen during filming. Ok, one more thing before I go, TheDuoGroup just released a trailer for their new series, its gonna be good, check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZO-csd9iLzM
