New Music Video - "Crackerbox Palace" by George Harrison

Here is a new music video. It is called "Crackerbox Palace" by George Harrison. When I heard this song, I was thinking, rather than doing a sequel to "Funky Disco Princess", why not a prequel. This one works.

Enjoy.

Powerpuff Girls 2016 Vlog - "Puffdora's Box."

I am back to review the episode, "Puffdora's Box."  It is a spoof on Pandora's Box.  Also I give a little Greek lesson.


Shout out goes to Katie Smerlas for her senior thesis film,  It is All Greek to Me.

UPDATE!

Here is an update!
First of all I am going to talk about the progress report on the film Dinosaur Daze.  Is it doomed for extinction?  I hope not!  Here is the scoop.  When the Motion Analysis Projector malfunctioned, the projector was going to be fixed in July.  I thought all hope was lost until I found an article on line from a PDF file of the old magazine, Super-8 Filmmaker where it was talking about rotoscoping with Super-8.  The article was written by Yvonne Anderson and she wrote that recommended the JK Optical Printer.  Just remove the camera and use the projector.  Then I thought, if the JK Optical Printer can do rotoscope like the Motion Analysis Projector, then it can do Dynamation by adding in a Projector Lens.  I told Adam Savje about it and wrote to he asked me about the article and I gave it to him via email.
He tried it and it did not work well, he recommended use a different wider-angle lens.  I agreed and we will try this thing for two weeks.  Let us hope for the best or else this project will be extinct just like other dinosaur movies that never got made like Jim Danforth's Timegate, David Allen's The Primevals, or War Eagles from the team who did the original King Kong.

So here is a Timegate, the movie that never was.


There will be more Powerpuff Girls 2016 Vlogs, but the trouble is, the camera malfunctioned because the memory disk got full.

That is all.

Powerpuff Girls 2016 Vlog - "Aracnoromance".

How bad is this episode?


Also more bizarre obscure movie references. Shout out goes to Tim Paxton, creator of "Monster! Magazine". He not only like bizzare movies that can make films KING KONG look mainstream, like me, but he also has a thing for bizarre Bollywood (Indian Cinema).
Here is a link just click here.

Powerpuff Girls 2016 Vlog - "The Wrinklegruff Gals".

I am back with another vlog.  This one is on the episode, "The Wrinklegruff Gals."

In this one, there are two animation flaws, a monstrous caricature of Donald Trump, and my impersonation of the Wrinklegruff Gals sounds a lot like The King of Town from Homestar Runner!

Enjoy.

On that day in 2014.

There was a great event that happened.  While Hollywood made their own version of Godzilla, I made a documentary called Hail to the King - A King named Kong.

After watching the original King Kong at the Brattle Theater, on July 5th 2013 and watching Saberspark's documentary, The Ballad of the Brony, about full-grown men who love the show because of the witty humor, clever writing, interesting characters, pop-culture references and the art of spreading the true message of love and tolerance.  Upon watching this, I thought to myself:

"If this guy can to a documentary about My Little Pony, then why can't I do one about King Kong?" 

I was originally going to make a monster-on-loose short movie with a stop-motion monster terrorizing Boston, but thanks to the Boston Marathon bombings, I felt like it was the wrong thing to do, so I decided to make this documentary instead.  It was originally 3 hours long, but my professor, Saul Levine, said:

"There are a lot of scenes that contain all these cartoon iterations of King Kong.  Why don't you trim down the access fat?"

I followed his advice and it worked. 

While the documentary was the main course, this cartoon was the appetizer.  It is called Sid Simpleton in the Planet of the Aches (or The Planet of the Aches for short).  Inspired by the way Cartoon Network is going with shows that contain messed-up storylines, eyesore character designs, voices that would make you want to rush for the mute button and shock moments!  The stuff that can make Scooby-Doo look like Sesame Street.

Matt and Mike Chapman created Homestar Runner because they didn't like the way children's media was going.





Craig McCracken (creator of Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends for Cartoon Network) made  Wander Over Yonder for Disney because he was not happy with the way cartoons were going.

Butch Hartman, creator of The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy for Nickelodeon made The Noog Network, which is an online app for kids 6 to 14, because of those shock moments on children's entertainment.






So inspired by old cartoons that I loved, I created Sid Simpleton.  After making  a few shorts with the character, I made Sid Simpleton in the Planet of the Aches.

Now for our feature presentation, Hail to the King- A King named Kong.
