Kinda Shitty

2009-04-03 22:01:40 by JMartin97

This is a screen from an HD cartoon I was working on for someone... but they didn't really dig the style. I also didn't anticipate just how much work a cartoon in 1080P would be. It is all hand drawn too.. so tons of scanning into my comp. Then, because it would obviously skip (because it's in 1080p and most comps can't handle that) I had to download a program to export everything (and the program is kinda expensive) without skipping!

But anyway... his loss. 5 days from when it was going to be finished he decided he didn't want it anymore. So a lot of time and stress for nothing... meanwhile I was letting my own thesis suffer because I was sketching and drawing and trying to get his project done. GAH!

I'm going to finish and submit it to newgrounds instead. It won't be in 1080 p but it's pretty coool.

Kinda Shitty



Been working on a few different animation projects.... but most people will be happy to know I'm almost done with Reboot 11 and 12. I've decided not to wait until 13 is finished. 13 needs so much work...

Anyway, here's a screenshot. Looks better in motion!

If I can get my voice talent together, I could have these out in a month. It would be quite the feat, since I'm already working on my thesis project for college and another students thesis. I work better creatively under stress.

This is what I've made in the last 6 months.

- Three 30-page scripts
- 18 Little Big Planet Levels
- 4 Flash projects
- 6 chapters of a novel I'm working on
- 1 Pokemon editing video (youtube.com/snowspot) (:P)

I mean.. I've done more than that probably but that's all I can think of off the top of my head. I started going crazy with LBP levels until I realized just how little exposure is even possible for that game. I got WAAAY more hits from showing it to people on NG than posting it on Little Big Planet websites. So I'm going to give it a rest on Little Big Planet... although I will be making an animation to finish my Little Big Apocalypse series, so look out for that some time in the Summer.

I need a vacation... I think.. I'm constantly making stuff... or thinking about making stuff.. or thinking about how I can get out of what I'm doing so I can go work on making stuff... Something is wrong with me! My brain won't stop! :-O

My inspiration is back from the dead


Little Big Planet is something all newgrounders should own!!!

I'm gunna keep this short but if you love creating flash, you'll love Little Big Planet. If you own a PS3 and create flash you should really check this game out. Also, if you like collabs because collabs are a big part of the LBP community.

Anyway, check out my newest level:

Regardless of my levels... at least rent the game and unlock the creation mode. It's the best 60 bucks I've spent in a long time and is probably my favorite game of all time... and I've been gaming for ... forever...

Little Big Apocalypse


Looking for someone to score my short film.

I'm currently working on my thesis film for my final year of college. I'm looking for a composer that can score the 10 minute film. The film is very tense interview and the music must reflect this mood. The film takes place in the future so if you would like to work that into your music, that would be great. If you're curious about what type of music I might prefer, check out the most recent episode of my series. REBOOT.

I'm NOT looking for anything REALLY FAST, or super-techno-ish. I want a score that starts slowly and builds to create a very tense atmosphere.

Most importantly, I'm interested in setting a mood. If you think you can do that, please shoot me a PM and respond to this thread, if you have samples of your work, please give me a link.

There will be compensation ($$) for this, I will pay you! How much? That has yet to be decided but I promise if you do a good job you will be well-paid.

If you are interested, please let me know!

Blazing new paths on the design and story front, Little Big Planet has had a huge influence on my work and helped me understand animation better(surprisingly). Reboot won't be released for a while... but I can promise when it is it will be as satisfying as you could imagine.

Cheers!

Do you think newgrounds cares about innovation? Give an example to support your views.

What's the most futuristic/ahead of it's time flash you have ever seen?

Last question.

What has been the COLLAB that effected you most? (Examples please!)

Link and Little Nemo in 8 Bit Genocide Trailer

This didn't get too much attention when I released it, maybe becasue it's a... OMG!!!! trailer?!?!

It's kinda of bloody so if you aren't into seeing blood you might want to steer clear.

This is for the next 3 episodes of Reboot, which sounds stupid because it's only 3 episodes but it's going to be a half hour long all together. That's a lot of work for one guy! But I think I have a vision that might be worth it, who knows, that still remains to be seen.

If you like violet anime, music, and videogames...

WATCH THIS MOVIE!@
