Upcoming films...

So I haven't given this blog any love for a while. It's just too easy to update Facebook and Twitter at the same time, so I apologize for that.

The good news is that my new film, Bricks of War, will be out on my youtube channel this Sunday along with a bonus video.

There will be an announcement about Battle of the Brick shortly and all of your fears and worries and questions about its release will be answered. I appreciate the patience of the fans who have stuck around this long. I realize how un-bearable the wait must be.

New update

So for the past few weeks Battle of the Brick has really been coming together. I'm just finishing up placing all of the sound FX in, and my friend in California just got done with a movie shoot, so he's going to have a lot of time to help finish up the special FX. It wont be long before a new trailer is released and a date is set, I promise.

Work continues...

So my buddy in California has been shooting a movie for the past 16 days. When he gets back soon, we're gonna try and finish the FX for the film and get this thing rolling.

Hulk plays Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Hey everyone! I've got a short little animation for everyone to celebrate the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 while I finish Battle of the Brick. I wanted to test out the "robot chicken" mouth trick with some hand-drawn mouths from Photoshop. So check it out. You might get a chuckle if you're familiar with the game.

Kooberz Interview

Here's my interview with The Video Game Show. We talk about Kooberz Studios, how I got started, and where the Battle of the Brick project is now.

Monday, January 31, 2011

This is the outline I used to guide myself through making Lego Starcraft: Brick Rush. The circles on the left indicated that I had shot the scene. I didn't need anything fancy. Just good old giant notecards!

New video

Here's the short video I put together as I finish up Battle of the Brick. I made this to highlight how heated gamers get, defending their console. It's ironic cause all consoles have their good and bad points. If I didn't like x-box, why would I own a 360 and original xbox?

P.S., the controller in the vid was already very broken. So yeah....wouldn't waste 40 bucks on that.

Comparison Exposures

Here's a recent exposure comparison I did for myself. The tricky part is getting as many figures in focus as possible. This usually requires a long exposure, or putting the ISO up as much as possible. Check out the shots for yourself. I usually use the last one the most, which gets more of the figs in focus. Also...these #'s aren't final. I change the settings all the time.

P.S...all shot on my Canon Digital Rebel XTi with a wide angle lens.

0"5 exposure, F5.6, ISO 100

10" exposure, F32, ISO 100
