I really need to get a scanner... I had to use my cellphone to import these pics -_- but im friggin broke. SO broke my website is down right now because I can't pay for the bandwidth. Yippie.. I'm clearly on the right path! (/sarcasm)

I've been working on Little Big Apocalypse. Originally, I was just going to do a recap of what happens inside the complex but ... now I see I have to go through it episode by episode. This adds about 9 episodes that I have to finish o_O. I'm excited though, I have some really crazy ideas.

I'm also working on Reboot 13... the final episode.. yikes. The ending will be something really memorable... and it involves filming me.

Well, LBA 2 should be here in a month or so, so get excited :P

peace.

My birthday, New Year's and The Apocalypse

Today is my birthday! I am now 25 years old! Woo hoo I haven't died yet! Clearly, a reason to celebrate.

Not only that but it's now 2011, one year before the supposed mayan doomsday, so, perhaps, this is all our last year on earth...and newgrounds.

Finally, I just released the first episode of Little Big Apocalypse. I was hoping to get in the top 5 for my bday... But too many talented people. Ah well. There is always the next episode :D

Happy New Years!

Check out the new Damaged Bads / Reboot website!

The new Reboot website is finally up.. it's a more organized way to watch the series.

http://www.thedamagedbads.com

The site is set up like a DVD/Manga. I have all the videos converted to ipad/iphone and I'm working on connecting them tonight. So if you have a new ipad or iphone xmas morning, watch Reboot :O in glorious full-screen with no slow-down.

Next up? Since I have 110 minutes of cartoon, I'm thinking of combining it all into a movie. I'm just trying to figure out what scenes I would have to add, on top of this next episode.

Well, I'm off to work on Reboot 13 -_- Bye!

Check out the new Damaged Bads / Reboot website!

Reboot 12 Released to the Portal!


Everyone..?

Things have been going slowly huh? But Reboot 12 is now mere days from submission.

It is 16.5 minutes long. Longer than 15 min!

This means that Reboot 11/12 are over a half hour together.

So my goal of creating a real 30 min cartoon has sort of come true.

Lots of new voice actors!

Totally different mood.

Get ready :D

Everyone..?


Little Big Planet 2 Beta :D

2010-10-18 00:54:08 by JMartin97

Woo woo. I was invited to the new beta of LIttle Big Planet 2. I have to say that I'm pretty impressed with what I see, not sure how much I can say. I've been broke for the last few months so it's nice to essentially get a free 3 week play test of an unreleased game (the sequel to one of my favorite games of all time). I'm releasing my cartoon, Little Big Apocalypse on Jan 1st, the same date that Little Big Planet 2 will be released on. It's also my birthday. The stars have aligned *_*

The new weapons and powerups in LBP 2 are pretty amazing and open up soooo many gameplay opportunities. I can't wait to have the full version of the game and also one of those fancy-schmancy MOVE controllers. I hope they live up to the hype.. although right now it doesn't seem like it. Maybe MOVE needs a killer-app? and not some stupid wii-like bullshit? XD

I've been falling behind with my work big time. On top of trying to animate two projects, I'm also trying to build up my blog and start making legit money from it. A recent post I did was featured on boingboing and richarddawkins.net, it got around 28,000 views. Using Google Adsense, that only got me around $15.00. Turns out, making money from the internet is kind of hard. o_O

My animations, Reboot and Little Big Apocalypse have suffered because I took some time off to create my website and essentially re-learn all the stuff I forgot when I let my hosting run out on my old site. Now my website is up though and it's looking good and getting hits, so I can finally breath a sigh of relief that not all that effort was wasted.

My newest animation, Reboot 12 has been worked on, on and off for the last 2 years and it's just about done. At this point I'm just waiting for the voice actors to get back to me.

REBOOT 12... -_-

I said I would release Reboot 12 a while ago.. I'm sorry! I'm working on it now... I took a lot of time off and became obsessed with Manga (again), go read korzuka!.. annnyway. I've also been spending a lot of time working my website snowspotmedia.com and my tumblr bubblegumdeathpop but... getting kind of bored of that, even though i can clearly get a lot of hits if I try... I feel like spending all my time posting news stories is kind of stupid... and I'm ignoring my real talents (editing/animation?) I don't know.

Reboot 12 will be done soon.. I think... I want it done and then it's on to LBA... then Reboot 13, which, if I can accomplish what I want, will make you get up and scream at your computer. That's my goal. I've got some other ideas for Reboot's future... some stuff that might even be illegal. Guess you'll have to see what I mean O_O

REBOOT 12... -_-
