Quick update...

Hey, it's me! Just so you know, my last post (see below plz) didn't show up on my mom's blog. So if you haven't seen it, see it now. If you don't I will hunt you down and eat your lawn. Anyway, it says on my mom's blog that I was going to make a movie with those fangs I got for Halloween. Will it won't happen now. You know why??? Cause I am the stupidest person on the planet. I had them in my pocket, and my friend tackled me somewhere in a giant grass area by our house, and now they're gone. Forever. Sorry.
But I am working on the script for the next Y2k movie. Sorry it's been so long, but it took a while for me to get a new cord so I could use my better camera. And I just like to procrastinate. But here is a sample to whet your appetites.

Just so you know, this will NOT be in the actual movie, this is more of a demo. The movie will have a script, and some sound effects and music. But it will have me, Elise, Joe, and yet another harvester to try and take our powers. I'll give you a little sneak peek here...

Elise

Will

Have

A fight scene. Oh yeah!!!

Now other news. I made this on youtube, and I'm giving you the link so you can see the amount of views it got. It is amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TwuQMWr5jY

And another anouncement. I am entering 3 animation contests on youtube. The first one I am sending in my pivot video, Assassin, from the latest post. Its deadline is on the 7th of December. The second is a lot more important, so I am working very hard on a pivot that will be a prequel to assassin, and a lot better looking and more fluid. That deadline is on November 23rd. And the third, I am letting you guys vote on what I should enter. See me last post, watch the vids, and leave a comment. I'll post the highest voted on one. But you only have till the 20th, 3 days before the contest ends.

Finlly, my last announcement. Me and my dad are going to Minnesota to hunt pheasants. I'll bring my camera, hint hint.

So, that was a long post. I think I'll go eat 2 pounds of ham.

I know, I know, stop nagging me. Here is a blog post!!! I'd like to say I've been too busy, but... liars go to Zimbabwe, and I don't like Africa. But I have been a little busy. Check these FIVE pivot animations out. (In order from least to best).

This one (above) is a pretty good animation, but the sound effects are way off. Sorry about that!

WARNING: THIS VIDEO HAS ONE OUNCE OF MINOR BLOOD IN IT!!!!!!!!

One of my best comedies.

It helps if you don't have a history of seizures to watch this. And it's the same 6 frames over and over, so you don't have to watch the whole thing to get what it's about.

I made this for a school project where I had to create a new classroom, and where money is no object.

My ground-breaking, booty-shaking, cookie-baking, yard-raking, pipe-snaking awesome new series!

Hey, before you watch this, I need to shine some light on the subject of what this is.

Basically, one night, me and Elise were REALLY bored, so we decided to make some cartoon characters on MS paint. It sort of evolved into a little animation called Taterz:

Anyway, we decided to release one animation every 2 weeks. These are full of humor, suspense, and more humor. They're also kinda crazy. So here is episode one, just for you, you lucky duck!

A new movie

I made this with my friends for fun. Not the best actors, but then again, I'm not the best editor either. You'll notice the out-of-sync effects.

Oops!

Oops is right. I TOTALLY forgot about my blog. I just got off school, and well, my life has been pretty awesome, so I was all messed up.
I've been working on another animation, but for some strange new reason my computer won't let me put the animations on Movie Maker anymore. I'm figuring that one out right now.
Stay tuned for a new 3-part, 15 minute (or so), uber special effects short film. Brandon Sweat will be in it if he wants to. It'll be called  The Y2k Incident. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?

Animator Ethan

Sorry about the lack of post age. I've been working on this.

I'm making a series called Invasion. It's about this extremely poweful alien race that wants to take over another planet. The other planet is trying to fight back. It's sort of an Alien vs. Predator theme. You can root for whoever you want. I'm rooting for the invaders (called Demonites).

Part one:

I'm in a top ten'n mood.

I just barely read the NMH's blog(good job, Andrew) and I decided to make a top ten list of my worst fears. As an impressionable 12 year old with a VERY overactive imagination, I've developed a condition that I like to call wussies' syndrome.

10. Dark streets

I have a friend that lives around the corner. We like to hang out a lot, but he prefers it at night. So I have to make the 1 minute sprint through the dark to his house. No matter what, I always imagine some sort of fiend jumping around a corner and eat me.

9.Clowns

I hate clowns. I just do.

8. Murderers

At night, I imagine a man with a knife (knives are so much scarier than guns) jumping out of my closet.

7.Closed showers

There are three showers in my home. My parents have a glass shower each, one upstairs, one in the basement. But the one for the kids is an old fashioned, creaky shower. I keep thinking about a man with a sharpened kitchen utensil stabbing me right when I get shampoo in my eyes.

6. Dark, weird creatures of any kind.

My mind makes up all these. They pretty much exist in the basement. Usually brown and 7 feet tall.

5.Psycho killers.

Like murderers, but insane.

4. Oceans

I just don't like them, especially when they're deep.

3. Orcas

I mean, Shamu's cute, but seriously? These things are killing machines!

2. Sharks

Worse than Orcas. I think they're scarier in a lake setting.

1. Ghosts

Invisible, invincible, and sometimes angry.

A cool song

I made this song, but I give credit to The Ultimate Battle of Ultimate Destiny by Lemon Demon. I changed the lyrics, though. This is about my friends, and at one part, family members. Except the part about Shaq and the tater.

Old Jason was hopping around
Tokyo City like a big playground
when suddenly Alec burst from the shade
and hit Jason with a grenadeJ
Jason got ticked and began to attack
but didn't expect to be blocked by Shaq
who proceeded to open up a can of Shaq Fu
when Josh Hawkins came out of the blue
and he started beating up Shaquille O'Neal
then they both got flattened by the Alec mobile
but before it could make it back to the A-cave
Zombie Braden popped out of his grave
and took an AK47 out from under his hat
and blew Alec away with a rat-a-tat-tat
but he ran out of bullets and he ran away
because Mitchell Baldwin came to save the day
this is the ultimate showdown of Sojo city
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the ultimate showdown of Sojo city
Jason took a bite out of Mitch’s eye
and Andrew Brewer took a bite out of crime
then Shaq came back covered in a tire trac
but Kevin Pham jumped out and landed on his back
and Alec was injured, and trying to get steady
when Zombie Braden came back with a machete
but suddenly something caught his leg and he tripped
Nathan Miner took him out with his whip
then he saw Jason sneaking up from behind
and he reached for his gun which he just couldn't find
'cause Alec stole it and he shot and he missed
and Kevin Pham deflected it with his fist
then he jumped in the air and did a summersault
while Zombie Braden tried to pole vault
onto Mitch, but they collided in the air
then they both got hit by the old man’s stare, oooh
this is the ultimate showdown of Sojo city
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the Ultimate Showdown...
Angels sang out in praise for this man
down from the heavens descended Ethan
who deliver a kick which could shatter bones
into the crotch of Nathan Miner
who fell over on the ground, writhing in pain
as Alec dressed up as a candy cane
but Ethan saw through his clever disguise
and he crushed Alec's head in between his thighs
(NOT PART OF THE SONG:this is the part with family members)BACK TO THE SONG
then Wyatt the Grey and Wyatt the White and"Monty Python and the Holy Grail"'s Black Joe and Elisio Mussolini and The Joe Meanie and Cowboy Wyatt and Jambi the Leesie Robojoe, the babinator, Captain Quirk(Jonas), and Darth Tater Joe Man, SuperY, every single Family member Lou S. Preston and Lauren Logan,Wy, the cat, Doc Jane, and Ray Hogan
all came out of no where lightning fast
and they beat up Ethan in his Red Sox hat
it was the bloodiest battle the world ever saw
with civilians looking on total aweand the fight raged on for a century
many lives were claimed, but eventually
the champion stood, the rest saw their better:
Austin Burton in a bloodstained sweater
this is the ultimate showdown of Sojo city
good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be
this is the Ultimate Showdown...
this is the Ultimate Showdown...
this is the Ultimate Showdown...
of Sojo city

The answers

Here are the promised answers to the animal test.

Mom, you are a ...............
Rabbit!
They live in forests and eat all kinds of veggies. Their powerful hind legs give them an advantage when running from predators. And they come in white, gray, black, and brown.

Andrea, you are a................
Black chinned hummingbird!
They live in desserts drinking sugars from cactuses and other desert plants. They consume their weight in sugar every day to keep up with extreme metabolisms.

And finally, Amy you're a.......
Toucan!
Toucans have the trademark long, rainbow beak that curves down to a point. They use it to break open hard fruits and to hold and eat soft ones. Their favorites are grapes and berries. They have downy black feathers and their beak consists of usually three colors, red, orange, and yellow.
So, that's it. I would have liked a few more comments but, aw well. And another thing. I tested my friends, and the answers stayed around wolf, puma, tiger, lion, coyote, jaguar, hawk, eagle, and shark. So there's a clear difference between women in their thirties and twelve year old boys.

The galaxy zoo


Hey! Guess what I got us! Tickets to the new Intergalactic zoo at the spore universe! The creatures were made by me, and they only have one exhibit open. It has 4 animals.
How do you get there? Just press the little sticker on the ticket. Here you go!

Hello. I am Gnarbly, the pseudopodler. I will be your host this evening. We have 4 new exiting exhibits, and I will tell you about the exotic animals. Any questions? Good. Ok, here's the first one.




Ohh, nasty little creature, that is.It's called the Deathraptor. See its huge toe claws? Can rip open solid rock. The only known creature that can take down an Elebull, which we will see soon. it can jump 20 feet, and move at speed of 9933 quals, or 80 human miles an hour. And smarter than an average Earthchimp. They give me the jibblies. Oooohohoh.





That is a Peroxian Sharkoid. A form of the Great white, 100 of them were mutated, and sent to Peroxia, where 75 of them escaped into the Galaria ocean. The evolved spiky fins right behind their mouths which are used for wounding and stunning prey. Ouch. oh, and the one we're looking at is only 23 feet long. they can grow to over 45 feet long.

This one's my favorite! It's called the Elebull. I mentioned it before, and said that the Deathraptor is its only known predator. And it takes 6 or 7 of them to do it. the Elebull is peaceful, and intelligent, and weighs 7 to 8 tons, making it bigger than an average elephant. It reaches 18 feet tall at the shoulder, but sometimes their pituary gland malfunctions due to testosterone levels in the blood, and they mutate to 30 foot giants!



That is the akward, but funny, Pooka bird! They feed on the pooka friut and the Pooka fruit ONLY. The pink fruit gives them this color, and they are gray-brown at birth. The largest bird that can fly, but it still falls victim to the high leaping Deathraptor. ah, well, it's not like there's a shortage! There are 7 species, and around 9 million of each left on the planet. not going extinct soon.

That concludes the tour! Bye!

You're back? How was the stay? Good. oh, and guess what? they're building a new exhibit called Wonders of the Ice Planet! You sohuld see it sometime.

Updates and Spring in February

Hey! It's me again. I haven't posted in a while, see why on number 2, and I wanted to give some updates on my life.
1. Snowboarding. I've learned to snowboard.
I got involved in a program called snowblitz at school, where every day at 2:45, an awesome bus with tv's and cushy seats takes you to Brighton with other people that signed up (including my three good friends, Alec, Josh, and Jason). And you get lessons on snowboarding or skiing. But on my last day when Mom brought my stuff to school...

2.I saw my mom in the parking lot, and went over to her. Previously, my computer had been having virus issues, and we didn't know what to do. It made pop-ups appear rapidly, even if you're not on the internet. I was using MS paint, and it said I was the millionth visitor. Anyway, my Mom informed me that she got me a whole new computer! It's a Vista, which isn't as crappy as everyone says.

3. Bad news. You know those episodes I've been doing on zoo Tycoon 2? Well, not anymore. that virus came from an animal download for my next episode, and I didn't want that to happen again. Sorry.
4. This one's good! I got this game demo for my computer called the spore creature creator, which lets you make animals of your own. IT'S AWESOME! Once I figure out how to show you my creatures, I will. And the actual game, plain Spore, is even better. You start out as a germ, getting bigger and either eating plants or smaller germs, or both. You add cooler and cooler parts on your germ, and suddenly you can move super fast or shock things.
Then you go to land, and develop a creature and let it be an omnivore, predator, or herbivore. that animal can make friends, and hunt enemies.
Once your creature has evolved enough, you get to start a primitive tribe, with custom-made instrument, weapons, huts, and primitive vehicles. That YOU invent
Once you defeat all neighboring tribes, you can start advancing. You can make tanks, blimps, planes, all by you. And weapons. And money, buildings, blah kind of like how we are today.
Then future stage. You make a spaceship and bring life to desolate planets, or kill enemies. At the end of the game, your species has taken over the galaxy.
5. Finally, my last one. Saturday's weather was awesome! I went outside to play baseball, and I had to take off my jacket. It's the first time it's been so warm all year. It got me excited for my baseball season.
Well, that's all.

The Search For: The Florida Skunk Ape

There are a couple things I need to clear up.
1. At the end, I accidentaly zoomed in too far, and the thing's heads are cut out.(You'll know what I'm talking about when you watch the end). The tops of their heads are supposed to be exposed brains. Don't worry, I'll put them in more movies.
2. The skunk ape is only seen once, unfortunately. It is orange, and has small pads on its chest.
This one is the best episode yet. Better acting, better filming. Enjoy and stay tuned for episode 4, Search For The Loch Ness Monster!

The Search For The Yeti

Episode 2 in the "Search For" series. This one is about me going to the Himalayas in Asia, getting ready to study a Yeti. But the Yeti escapes, and it's up to me to track him down. See last post for episode 1 .

The Bigfoot movie

This is NOT the secret project. This is just an idea I had, that turned into a series. This is about me, as a 25 year old, looking for bigfoot. But it evolved into a race against a new threat. Episode 2, Yetis in the Himalayas, is underway. And sorry about the quality. Look hard.

Blast to the future!

I was laying down in my bed last night, wide awake at 11:45. I go to bed at 9:30, but this is a common occurance for me. Anyway, while I was having insomnia, I had a premonition about my future! I decided to write it in here.
ME: I live in San Fransisco, in an average old two story house. I live there because I was hired by the famous San Fransisco zoo as a director of enrichment. Basically, I think of ways that the animals can get mental and physical exercise, like puzzle boxes with food in it for monkeys, or hidden pinatas with meats in them that make prey noises for the large carnivores to gruesomely devour, hehehehehe. Anyway, I have a wife and three kids, two boys and one girl. Their names are Ryan, 10; Lucy, 8; and Adam, 5. That was in age order. Ryan likes Star wars, which is still around in 2029, and madden 30. Adam likes science, even though he's 5, and doesn't know much about it. I found out that he snuck in his custom built ant farm, where he wrote crude little "notes" about them. He has a table in his room where he plays scientist, called the (in his pronounciation) the 'speariment table. And Lucy likes art, of any kind. She's pretty good, too.

JONAS: He lives in Orlando, where he works as an Aerospace engineer for NASA. He's loaded, that's all I can say. Hey, if you invented a new solar leer jet, you'd be pretty darn wealthy too.

ELISE: She lives in upper Utah, on a ranch. Her husband, Aaron, owns the ranch, lucky for Elise, who loves horses. Elise works as a chef for an Italian restaurant. She has 5 kids, Harry, Larry, Mary, Karie, and Fred.


So, yeah. I saw the future.

Star wars: my version

This is NOT the secret project. But there won't me any more of these kind of videos. The program that makes these won't work with my nice camera, and my old one won't plug into my computer for some reason. The only reason this worked was because I had already saved it. So, I can't make any more. Well, enjoy the awesomeness.
