NEW VIDEO Splintercell: Blacklist (animated parody)
One of two commissions for Ubisoft, this video was part of a youtube campaign to promote the release of the upcoming Tom Clancy game title, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The campaign also featured four other online content creators who all had to animate or shoot a video based around the official transformation trailer.
While there’s a hot-blooded tale of dramatic lows and highs, that’s all the shit that doesn’t matter. Why bring it up? Because if you’re my friend or following me on twitter you probably witnessed me having a minor breakdown as I proceeded not to sleep for eight days. The point is: the video was completed with the help of my friends Cory, Nevarky, and Nico (as well as the support of many many others). And I personally feel it turned out great, especially given the nose-bleed nature of it’s literally last-minute completion.
I can’t express how thankful, humbled, honored, and lucky I am to have friends like I do now. These guys got my back without hesitation, and this wasn’t like asking some buddies to help me move apartments, this was a sleepless week of stressful full-force animation. On a very real note, it’s why I’ve leaned more and more in the direction of my Ricepirate persona, politely stepping aside from my old self. The crew of people I now call friends are some of the best, funniest, most hard working and talented people I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with. </rant>
Got another commission planned for release next weeks. The fun just never ends.
