Suppressor Fun

Well, Since suppressor is taking a bit longer to plan than I originally thought(mrdougan's computer difficulties, My overall Laziness, Stevie why with no internet...The list could go on), I have decided to do another short of some sort. But the short is not important, Suppressor Is gonna have some incredible plot twists and some sweet special effects this season. I really hope everyone will enjoy it. So now you know to expect a short before the next episode of suppressor, I don't have any Idea whats it gonna be about, or what game engine.

ohhhhh welll,

Zephyr News

Ok, I just released the second trailer for zephyr which you can view here. 

Why is it just a trailer instead of the pilot? Well, I decided that If I am going to do a series for cod4 right, I need some time to sort it all out. This way, by march I will be done with Suppressor and I will be free to take my time to do zephyr right.

Suppressor is now underway.
Hope you understand,

New Idea

Welllll, I have been doing alot lately. I have decided to postpone zephyr for about a week and since Ive been doing a ton of Halo 3, I will do something in cod 4. It will be either SNGD 5 or something similar until I can finish the zephyr pilot. I think you get it though. so as far as releases it goes as follows:

1.Cod4 Comedy short
2.Zephyr Pilot
3.Suppressor Season 2 Episode 1
4.Warthog Training Pilot

I am also messing around with adobe after effects, which is a blast, So expect to see some effects in these episodes.

  And also, remember to make a twitter account and follow me there for frequent updates.

ok, right now Im making the pilot Episode for Zephyr. Expect it to be about 7 minutes or so.
I am also writing the script for the second season of Suppressor, which I am going to be using some special effects and such just to try out a new program.  After all of this is released, expect Warthog training.

Also, I have started up a Twitter page that I will update pretty frequently(More than this blog).
This is the link to my page RIGHT HERE. 

I made it to follow TheDuoGroup's Twitter, so I decided might as well use it too.

Ok, thats about it.

Ohh, I also have a machinima tutorial thing I will release after the cod4 and halo shorts are released.

ANyway, I have a couple things planned before I start making series. First off, I am about to release the suppressor Season 2 teaser, the bad part is, Im delaying the season for another 3 weeks or so Until season 1 can be released. I also have a short Machinima tips video that alot of people are going to find helpful for making their own machinimas. I will release that a couple days after the teaser for season 2. And, I am also making a Halo 3 short that I am investing alot of time(money) into, So you guys better enjoy it. Warthog training will begin shortly and will be next in line after all I have mentioned will be released. Zephyr will start sometime in febuary.

Hey, In case you are wondering, I removed all the videos on my channel which have copyrighted material in them. Why? I just want to avoid any future conflicts. I will redo audio on videos I think should be back up there and eventually reupload them. I also audio swapped a couple of the videos so They could stay up. If you have any questions, just send me a message.

Recap of 2008 and The Plan for 2009

Well, Its been a very good year. I started making machinima when I got my capture card on April 18th 2008. I have to admit that I never saw myself getting this far as a director. I really think that this is something I will continue with for a while and maybe even Go to film school and see where I go from there. I have really enjoyed making movies for everyone, and hope that you continue to support me. Happy New Year!!

NOW for 2009: I have so much planned that I am almost overwhelmed with ideas. But let me take this one at a time, Firts of all, Some of my goals for this year are to get some more recognition for all my machinimas, Improve as a Director/Editor, and even get more advanced equiptment to make my movies more impressive. Second of all, I need to sort out what Im going to do with Suppressor. Many of you know that I have arranged with Gear(http://www.youtube.com/fbwalshyftw) to release all of season 1 of suppressor on his youtube channel to get a wider audience watching it. As soon as he finishes releasing them, I will Post the Suppressor Season 2 teaser and start Season 2. He will also be posting these on his channel in accordance to when I post them. Which means they will be released at the same time so I dont have to make the videos private until he posts them like I had to do with season 1. This may be the last season for suppressor, but thats not final.
And on the same subject of halo, I have still Planned to make Warthog Training, which will give me a chance to have some fun with making a comedy and such. This series will be released rather sparsley comapared to my other series because It will be a number 2 priority. I may also throw in a couple Halo shorts and such If I feel like it.

And now For COD4.
I have so many series planned that I have been forced to cancel Robot Donkey which will be replaced by random comedy shorts that I feel like doing. I also plan to do random episodes of Search N Get Destroyed which I hope will continue for a while. I also have to plan out a season of Zephyr which will be an incredibly intensive show consiidering what I have to do to make it look like its not something that I rushed through. So dont expect it to be made that often, I think that I may delay it until I get into season 2 of suppressor. And Like halo, I may do random comedy and Action shorts along the way.

Another announcement is that If you havnt already noticed, I have been royalty free music lately to avoid any copyright conflicts. In the end I may even remove all of my videos that contain copyright issues and apply for a youtube partnership. I may take them down, and redo the audio so I can put it back up. I will see if I feel like it.
One last thing, I plan to do Commentary for Suppressor that I will post on my secondary youtube account http://www.youtube.com/spartacus280 If you have any requests for commentary, send me a message and ill do it.

Well, We will see what happens this year.
