I posted a video last week that showed automobile crashes. So someone from newgrounds decided to go and report my video... then it got banned!

I wear it as a badge of honor! So whoever did it, thank you for inflating my ego. I now know that some of you are just not ready for my awesome powers. BOW BEFORE ME!...

The video was deleted off youtube but here's the vimeo version

My mom thought it was offensive but I think that's just a gut emotional reaction people first have. What do you guys think?

Been working on LBA a little, still a lot to do on that but it's all coming together. I've been interning at gawker and I've done about 3 videos for them, I'll show them here when I can. I am going to be working on LBA hardcore for the next few weeks because I want it done soon.

When I release a trailer, I get lazy because my work is out there and I get a sort of temporary satisfaction. I've really gotta break that habit...

A few weeks ago I applied for an internship at gawker.com. Two days later I was emailed by the editor, who told me to come in for an interview. I arrived early and met up with Richard, the editor, we talked for a while and he told me that I would fit in there. That was it, I had it.

I intern in the gawker.tv section of the site. I get to edit, which is nice since that's what I majored in in college. You'd think I'd have a job in the industry by now but the recession has many of us recent college graduates accepting lowly internships instead of jobs. Yikes. Maybe it was all that animating when I should have been editing. Oh well, I like animating better, so fuck it.

Check out my first post(pitch)! It's a comedy clip by Zach Galifianakis. Nothing really exciting but hey, it says Jon Martin. That's my whole goal in life, seeing my name out there. :D So help me out and check out that link. You can also read all the asinine comments I post on the site.

I'll explain more of what I do at Gawker in my next post. I'm actually releasing a video I edited tomorrow night. So Stay tuned. I think it might get a lot of hits.

New trailer - The Apocalytes


New Trilogy

2009-12-10 01:42:39 by JMartin97
Updated

Been working on my new trilogy called Little Big Apocalypse for the last few months, neglecting my Reboot duties. I'm pretty close to announcing Reboot's new name. It's strange but it'll grow on you, trust me.

It's a shame the whole apocalypse genre has become so played out, I started working on this like 6 months ago. Now everything is about the fucking apocalypse. I also had the idea for Wall-e then I fucking see that trailer. I dunno, I am just too slow to the game sometimes, I need a production company. It's hard doing this whole thing with just me! I don't get paid or anything... shit.

Lets get serious for a moment though.

This is my last hurrah.

If the trilogy isn't received well, I'm probably going to take a long long break from animating. However, that's just my worst fear. I'm pretty confident it will be a hit. I wish I could show more pics on newgrounds but you can only post one picture.

Kinda lame!

Just saying... or maybe there is some markup I don't know.

2010 will be a very exciting year if you like my work because I'll be releasing 5 cartoons, each 10-15 minutes long. If you can count well, that's over an hour of fucking cartoons.

Emphasis on the fucking.

New Trilogy


My new series

2009-09-22 00:39:25 by JMartin97
Updated

This is from my new cartoon Little Big Apocalypse, which was actually started long before "9". It's a Little Big Planet series I started when the game was first released, I did 20 episodes and my cartoon will be the epic 30 min conclusion to the series. The cartoon also has a big synopsis of what happened in the game, so anyone who hasn't played will still be able to follow along.

I'm doing things I've never done before in this cartoon, this is better than any episode of Reboot. And if you want to know a secret, this is actually part of Reboot, don't be surprised to see a Reboot character pop up in Little Big Apocalypse(if you follow my REBOOT series).

Anyway, it's always been my goal to be number 1 in the portal, I may not be the best animator but I'm getting better and god damnit, newgrounds will see what I'm really capable of!

Found a voice actor and... releasing 3 things soon

2009-08-08 05:53:05 by JMartin97

So, I found a voice actress for Reboot 11,12, and 13. I'm not going to announce her yet, you'll just have to find out when I release 11, it'll be soon though. I can't hold on to them any longer, I don't want them to seem dated... which they already do because I've gotten so much better since I started them. It was a big mistake using the same file for all 3. Never doing that again, it's made everything so much more difficult.

Anyway..

So you're probably wondering when Reboot 11 and 12 are coming out. I don't know, probably within the next 2 months. I've been focusing on Little Big Apocalypse ALOT the last few days. I want it finished by September 8th and hopefully, all three of my projects will be done by then.

I haven't really talked about Little Big Apocalypse(LBA), mostly because I want to keep things secret because I'm a weirdo. For LBA I'm focusing on speed and telling things as quickly as possible. One more thing. Reboot and LBA are connected... so if you follow Reboot you're in for a few surprises. Here's a screenshot.

Like I said my flash has to be done by September 8th. So. You'll see it then.

Found a voice actor and... releasing 3 things soon



I need a really good voice actress to replace my current actress who plays the role of Violet. It's for Reboot, obviously. The only thing stopping me from releasing it is the lack of a voice actress for her character. I like my current actress but I feel like I need a change. I need someone that sounds natural and has done this a lot before. They have to be GREAT. Not just good.

So anyone have any ideas? Please let me know, as soon as I can get these voices I can get my episodes out.

Here's a photo from another flash I'm working on, it's called Little Big Apocalypse and it's the ending of my Little Big Planet series.

The character on the left is called The Builder, the character on the right is named Autonomicon.

I need a voice actress. Help me and I'll credit you.
