A fun short dedicated to the Megaupload FBI shutdown controversy.
A huge honor to have worked with hbrunav. The guy's talent is off the charts, and I look forward to his future here on Newgrounds... which is obviously bright and shiny.
Thanks to Lazyass for making the introduction. I hope you're doing your homework and learnin' dem animation skillz.
I'm stoked to have been cast as a cock-guzzling tranny in the latest Milburn endevour : Harley the Really Really Famous Porn Star.
With such an awesome cast and crew, I count myself lucky to be the backstage fluffer. Gobble-gobble!
I'd spoken about this gig in the last few posts, namely because I was so excited to be voicing in the very industry that got me inspired to start voice overs. Growing up on cartoons, going to acting school, and recently getting a taste of character voicing here on Newgrounds made the job all the sweeter.
Despite what some may feel about 4Kids, the folks who work there (that I met, at least) were so extremely supportive, positive, and all around just fun folks.
I was initially confused where my character was in the storyline, but I did some research. I'll be featured in episode 15, and on the sidelines in 16. Dunno if my character comes back or not later in the series. But it was nice to have a character with a story arch who plays a pivotal role in the protagonists journey.
Darren, the director, was fucking awesome. Hands down. (And so was Mike, our "engineer").
Soap Creative released a new game today Diggin' Dogs. I did some sound/voice stuff for the game.
I'm not just saying this because I worked on it, but as a mobile gamer, this shit is FUN! It utilizes the entire iphone without making you look like you're strangling a phantom.
It picks up fast, has a great mix of action and puzzle, and enough spastic activity to keep your ADD in order.
It's only 99 cents, and it's original. Not some ragdoll, bird tossing, yeah-we-get-it same-old-same-old bullshit.
Another thing I spoke at length about. After 12 years, my wife and I finally moved. After 3 days in a u-Haul, we're officially stationed in Minneapolis, and we're loving the new space. The neighborhood is awesome and we've got 1,800 sq feet of living space : enough for an entire room to become a voicing studio.
I miss New York (though I was there just yesterday for Yu-Gi-Oh), but I like the trees and the grass and the air here. I can already feel it's for the better ...
Hopefully, some more cartoon gigs will have me back in the city in the near future ... but not too near.
I'm working with RedHarvest and MonoFlauta on a game slated for Pico Day. The concept is a mix of old-school and new-school, and should be fun for any fan of platformers.
We got off to a quick start, but the process has taken a hit since the move and the Yu-Gi-Oh recording (which pretty much ate up this last week, now that I'm playing catch-up). That said, we still have plenty of time, and once the ball starts rollin', I'm hoping the progress will inspire us to rock.
PsychicPebble's Pikamon hit Youtube while I was on the road moving. And it was a dandy pleasure to behold while on the road. Fucking weirdo.
KaggyFilms' DragonCraft Z was released today. I voice the gayest Goku ever ... honestly, I thought his announcer sounded like a better Goku. My apologies. If you're a Minecraft Dragonball fan, go check it out.
Most surprising to me is how well everyone seems to have adjusted to the new design. It appears I gave the NG mob less credit than they deserved. So, kudos to the NG community.
- Love the new project management system and refined search feature.
- Miss the mini descriptions ... Tom's heard it a millions times by now, so I won't harp on it.
Overall, I'm just happy to see that things are still truckin' along at a steady pace.
Oh! AND HOLY SHIT!!! Thanks for the featured artist on the FP ... I'm humbled, I'm honored, I've got rock hard nipples. Honestly, considering the experience and connections I've garnered since being a part of the NG community, I really feel like I owe the NG staff and community a large debt. I'll try my best to pay it back in any way I can. Long live Newgrounds.
Besides the Pico Day game, there's a number of projects on the table. The God of War animation with Hulalaoo slowed down after he finished his education and started work, but I'm hoping to get that going again. The Creaturing Project has also lost a bit of momentum for a while now, however once I get settled in our new place, I plan to fill in the blanks on the site and move that along.
Also working on an "Awesome series" tribute. It's proving to be a lot more challenging than I initially planned, but I like that ... I'm learning a lot about animation, backgrounds, and comedic delivery and setup (namely, that I have to redo shit like 20 times before it's passable).
Lots of other things I'm forgetting ... bah.
That's it for now ... or at least, all I can remember!
