Reboot 11

2008-05-09 02:30:30 by JMartin97

Just a small update.

Here's a screenshot from the next episode. It's a new character. There are a few people that might be able to guess what this might have to do with. Reboot is going to get pretty gory and pretty twisted in the future but the music will still be the focus, so don't fret! Get ready though, I'm going to try to make the most disturbing flash on NG, or at least, the most disturbing series... but also balance that with real characters.

Oh and videogames play a much bigger role in this next episode.

Reboot 11

I edited this together for a class. Reboot 10 was inspired by a lot of the films I saw in my expressionism in film class. In fact, all of Reboot 10 is really inspired by silent films, horror films, and noir films...

Watch the high quality version :D

Reboot 10 didn't do as well as expected... it's odd how quickly something you are over-joyed about can suddenly feel like a waste. It just makes me wonder what NG users want... do they want 300 sticks? Do they want Neo vs Smith? I thought I'd get more hits than 9,000 and that was with the help of Tom putting it on the frontpage...

It just makes me wonder if it's even worth it, I have people e-mailing me complaining about the story, not many people viewing it, its a huge amount of work.. and for what... for a day or two in the spotlight? What was I expecting? I don't really know.

I'm sure I will be back on track on the next one sometime soon but whenever I open flash I just sigh and feel like crap, cause I feel like why am I even opening this? just so I can be upset when I finish my next flash and STILL no one cares.

BLEH. I'm sure this seems pretty emo but what else is this blog for? You want to see in to my mind right? Sorry if it's lame and emo right now :P

Oh and I'm listening to the gorillaz, this is an ipod touch background I made.

Submission Imminent!

Delaying Reboot for a few more days because not all my voice actors have submitted their voice work!

I could have submitted it without it but.... I think it would pretty negatively effect the flash.

Reboot 10 in 7 days

Jesus christ this last week went by fast. Looks like I have a week until I release Reboot 10. I'm considering only having a few characters voiced this time.... I like the idea of the viewer imagining some of the voices.. and the songs speaking for the rest of it.

So far it's 16 minutes long but will probably clock in around 17 minutes when all is said and done. This episode runs a lot smoother than the last 2. 24FPS! Now I have to fix all the little annoying things in the next couple days, who knows I might even release it a day early.

2 weeks until I'm done with Reboot 10. It's 16 min long and I really can't wait to release it. I'm giving myself that deadline. I stopped working on Reboot 11 so I could focus on 10.. and it's really paid off.. new characters, dying characters, destruction... I think you'll be surprised at the sudden turn the series is taking.
If I hadn't gone back and focused on 10 I wouldn't have thought of a ton of new ideas.. so although 11 is sort of delayed, the series is better for it.

But seriously I should just stfu and release it already, amirite.

2 weeks

This is just a post to say that no I'm not dead, I'm just busy as fuck, ok!

Reboot 10 is past like 18,000 frames and 11 is at 11,000... you know how hard it is to do this stuff alone?!?!

Gimme a break!!!


On a side note, I've been focusing on 10 because it's been so long since the last episode, I have to do two scenes, get the voices recorded and fix up some minor problems. It will blow you away and give you chills. Ok? That's a promise, either your eyes will water or you will get chills. So keep that in mind! It's hard to create such an effect, takes time. Thanks for checking this page, I know it's a long haul.. but my skills are increasing and soon you will remember why you invested your time watching this stuff. Trust me, it's gunna be good :D

Mostly they come at night.... mostly
