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!!!

:P

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


Reboot 11

Ok so my last post was the last Reboot 10 post.. well this is the last Reboot 11 post before I release 11. So that means I'm releasing them one week after the other. One Saturday morning you will wake up and see Reboot 10 and be like " :-O" then, the next week after you've started to get depressed again (from not watching Reboot) 11 will be released.

In total, it will be 30 minutes long, maybe longer.. and is really supposed to be one episode... but I'm changing the structure around so both stand on their own. I'm finalizing the script and now just have to go about re-arranging some things. Some crazy suprises are coming up. >:-D

The next time I submit a news post... Reboot 10 will be out.. :O

I'm not 100% sure of this episode, I'm trying lots of new things in it, hopefully it will work out!

Reboot 10 - 2nd to last update

Well, I'm not sure what to do, I'm almost at 16000 frames and I haven't finished half of what I wanted yet... maybe the story is becoming to big... I don't know, I guess I have to work out some thing and maybe get rid of some characters(evil grin).

I'm looking for some decent programmers. I'm thinking of splitting what was supposed to be 10 into 10 and 11. I want the second half of 11 to be a game. If anyone has any experience with programming... and I mean, can pretty much do whatever they want, please contact me. If you just learned... please don't contact me, unless it's about something else :D

I'm only going to post one more update after this.

Reboot 10 update

Still working hard on this thing but the holidays side-tracked me.. so did finals... in fact I've gotten REALLY side-tracked lately... but there's about 6 minutes done. This episode is going to really weird people out I think, it's a very big tone change, you can probably guess the tone from the pic I'm uploading.

I've had a lot of time to think this episode out, in fact, I've figured out pretty far into the series future. Some people are waiting for certain characters to reappear.. and trust me, they will... you just have to wait a bit. IT's all planned out. That is a huge part of the plot! You'll see!

Well anyway, thanks for reading this and sticking with me even tho I have to delay stuff, I want to see these things done as much as anyone :P

Reboot 10 update



Yeah so finals kicked my ass. I'm really scared about passing all my classes this semester :-x. I overestimated how much I could do. Give me another month. It's only been 1 month since Reboot 9, 2 months is better than a 7 month wait.

I am getting so bored of school, it seems like in every class we watch movies o_o. WTF am I watching a movie for, I paid to go to college here to learn things, not watch movies. Woah, you know what's scary? My teachers might get back to this and read it! Then I won't get hired for a job or something. It's scary... but it can happen. That's why even facebook is scary to use now, it has all your info and makes it available to advertisers and stuff... someone hiring you can also look you up and see all the stuff you've written. Kinda sucks.

I've been watching a lot of anime lately... probably way too much... I've watched 5 seasons of different animes in the last 3 weeks... read 6 books...finished most of episode 1 of the voyager... finished 5 mins of reboot 10... performed a caesarian section on what I thought was a pregnant woman... it's been a hectic month.

Here's a picture...

Reboot 10... not by christmas.. *stabs self*

The episode is coming along pretty nice, the scenes are all storyboarded. Some new characters in this one, I hesitate to keep introducing them but they are all kind of important to the story. There are about 5 characters, even after this episode, that haven't been shown yet. If all goes planned the next few episodes will be out relatively quickly since I'll just be improving the existing assests rather than do them all over again (what I used to do).

Oh and everyone check this out, I just did it:

It's comedy, hopefully.

Comparison from this time last year.

This is my attempt at a "news-worthy" post. I'm guessing it should contain some sort of flash material, not just me talking about random stuff.

Well here is a comparison of Render, the character from Reboot, from around the same time last year. This is a comparison between Render in Reboot 6 and Render in Reboot 10(The one I'm working on now). I'm overhauling how most of the characters look because a common problem (and a common complaint) is that the faces aren't animated enough.

My flash skills sure have come a long way since the first episode :P I go to film school and sometimes it's really hard to jump between regular filmmaking and doing animation. It's weird having so many possibilities, where in film you are usually strapped for cash... in flash, or animation, you can do whatever you want.. and the better you get, the more you can do... at least it's been that way for me. Check out my stuff before NES dreams, I think you will agree that my quality threshold has increased.

I'm actually trying really hard to release Reboot 10 by x-mas. o_o may santa bring my x-mas wish true.

Comparison from this time last year.

*sigh*

I said I would give myself a break...but somehow that just isn't possible. Here's a screen from the menu...

The script is done and the first minute or so is done, I have to type up the script and send it to my voice actors. I'm really hoping they will all stick around to play their roles again!
