Man this is a lot of work.... So I'm working on Reboot 11, 12 and 13. 11 is done,12 is 75% done and 13 is about 15% done. I'm probably going to release them every Friday for three weeks (I'm big on the saturday morning cartoon thing, lame as that sounds).

Stay tuned for a surprise trailer one of these days.

Reboot 11 - Finished

2008-10-01 23:00:47 by JMartin97

Ok so Reboot 11 is in the can... and by that I mean it's finished... for the most part, I still have to sync voices and animate some thing but for the most part, it's done.. and it's 12 min long. Now I'm focusing on Reboot 12 and 13. Reboot 12 is about halfway done.. and Reboot 13 is like..10% done, lol.

Anyway, here's some info!

The titles will be.

Reboot 11: Final Destination
Reboot 12: Cycle of the Polygogs

At least for right now they are.

I've been animating my butt off lately! I have to admit, when I went to Japan I had like nothing done in Reboot 11... and in the 2 months I've been back I've done about 15 minutes worth of stuff! The drawings are also much better now.

Now, hopefully, Reboot will start becoming what it was always supposed to be. The introduction phase of the series is over and now the odyssey begins. Now I can finally start doing things I've never seen in cartoons.. and hopefully no one has.. I really want to surprise people.

Reboot 11 - Finished

Reboot 11 is taking forever! Ya know?

I think so too.. but it's still not done and it's getting so long that I have to split 11 in two. I did the same thing when I was creating 10. I had to split it up and half of it ended up being Reboot 11... This time, I'm going to wait until both Reboot 11 and 12 are finished. Right now I'd say that combined they are 60% done.

It's been a pretty long wait already so I'm going to make it up to people by releasing a new trailer sometime soon... hopefully that will hold people over. I'm also going to release it without the word "reboot" in the title.

I want to post pictures.. but this episode is kind of top secret! Once again, my goal will be to break the top 50... this time I just might do it.


Reboot 11 in two months

2008-08-06 21:25:44 by JMartin97

I've been working on Reboot 11 quite a bit but there's still a whole hell of a lot to do. I think people will be SHOCKED at what happens... well, at least that's what I'm going for.. This next "chapter" of reboot might turn a lot of people off, as it kind of takes a turn into very dark territory... then again, maybe it was dark anyway, I dunno... This episode will be much better than the last, and I think it pretty much ties everything up before the big change.

Anyway, here's a picture, there will be better ones in the next few updates... but I still don't wanna ruin the suprises, there's like a million. This next episode will be an orgasm for anyone that's a hardcore videogame fan.

Reboot 11 in two months

I'm back from Japan.. and it's time.

Time to work on Reboot 11 again! I did all the storyboards in Japan and I think people will be surprised.

I had some crazy times in Japan!

I'm back from Japan.. and it's time.

I'm having a great time in Japan and learning a lot... but it's making me crazy not being able to work on reboot! Gah!

The fla files crash on my laptop when I try to open them. I think I'll probably have to just create a new file and name every symbol. I have had so many sweet ideas since I've gotten here though. There might even be a Japanese character in there now =-o

Confused in Tokyo

2008-06-21 20:54:37 by JMartin97

Wow, sort of wondering if this was the right idea. I am in Tokyo right now, in my hotel. After this I am traveling to Fukuoka to meet my "host family" , who I'll be staying with while I study Japanese... cept.. they don't know any English.. and I hardly know any Japanese.. and lets just say that the conversation we had on the phone didn't go to well :-I

The plane ride was pretty horrible. 13 hours in seat E, which means it's in the direct center, 2 people on my right and 2 on my left. It made it really akward since I usually pee alot. After flying into narita airport I was happy to get off the plane... but then I realized I have to make it to my hotel in Tokyo.

LUCKILY, I had my ipod touch, which has a copy of wikipedia on it(2gb). I was able to look up Narita Airport and discovered that the subway at the bottom of the airport goes directly to Tokyo by a train called the "narita express". So I hopped on that and sat down, I didn't give my ticket much notice to where I sat because I'm used to getting on the subway. Well, that's not how it works in Japan...

I started to realize I was in the wrong place when all the seats were open.. and some random guy sat down next to me and asked me to move my things. I was like, wow I'm being hit on by a Japanese guy at the airport? Then a woman asked me to move because I was in her seat. So I was in the wrong seat and MY seat was 7 cars up... so I had to lug all my packages to the front, and I really felt like a smelly american as I was sweating. I had also been up for almost 24 hours so I looked like shit.

As we pulled up to Tokyo station I was very relieved.. but then came the realization that I had no money on me to get a taxi. I went to ATM's but they wouldn't take an American card (or at least the ones I tried). Eventually I found a really helpful taxi driver that knew where the hotel was and could also take payment with a credit card. I wanted to give him a tip but I knew in Japan that isn't really done.. and I had no clue about asking. I said "tip" a few times but the guy just didn't respond. ..

After I got back, I realized I was STARVING. I hadn't eaten on the plane much, so I really hadn't eaten much in 24 hours either. I walked to the am/pm down the street but ... they couldn't take my card, they only took EDY or something. So I trudged back to the hotel and exchanged my money... then walked all the way back and got 2 coke zero's and a really bad red bean bun.

Now I have to get on a train to Fukuoka and meet my host family. Wish me luck!
