The Boss, Hectic Times, Some more eh....

Another promotional poster from the MotAA production thread for your perusal. 

Quickly coming up on a busy couple of weeks that will entail a move to a new pad (complete with a back yard!  Huzzah!  A rarity here and my first in 10 years.  Kid Millions will be pleased as will I as I cook burgers and drink beer in the summer sun.) followed by a a trip to Barcelona (my first time in Europe).  Perhaps there will be pictures that don't involve animated 3d characters.  A lot of fun but a bit hectic.  

Heres a flick I assume most of you have seen but I somehow missed; ThrowAxe's That's Amore.  Won the Romance category of the MS valentines competition but dont let that stop you.  Evokes all the airy goofy fun of a 50's musical.  Great animation sequences and camera work.  Pretty badass.

King Buzzo, Olympic Ideas, Explosions!

Here a quick poster I worked up for the MotAA production thread over on TMU.  Im real excited to work with King Buzzo.  I hear he's quite the professional.

Amid all the work I've been doing on that production I've ended up watching a fair amount of the winter Olympics when I had no intention of doing so.  I just happened to flip by and saw some scrawny looking russian ice skater who looked like he wanted to die because he had made a mistake that cost him his 5 minutes of fame.  And then I remembered how there was occasionally some unhyped, completely real emotion seen in the Olympics and then it was too late.  So last night was the mens ice skating competition which was just unbelievably funny.  "Blades of Glory" was but a tiny LED compared to the sunburst of garish comedy on display in this event.  

There was an Italian Luke Duke wannabe (complete with undone overall), Edward Featherhands, the Tassle (who actually looks like edward scissorhands) and Skeletor.  Too much fun.

Anyways, it got me thinking about how much fun a Olympic mashup would be where the ice skaters would have to form a team and take on the worst olympic hockey team while that hockey team would have to compete in the figure skating comp.  Cutting Edge of Glory anyone?

Sorry, enough of the sillyness.  Check out WarLords first part of The Outland; Freeport 7 for some impressive scifi effects (including things that flock together, things that break apart and a wonderful floating dead woman) and a solid start to something good.

The Dark + Jekyll & Hyde

Heres a little concept from mcornetto called "The Dark". Write up a short script based upon the darkest regions of your mind and if selected it will become part of a moviestorm feature. The Deadline for the script is this friday so it's short notice but could be a pretty cool exercise. Full details can be seen at SimplyScripts.

Be sure to check out the (pretty well made) concept reel here.

Added link bonus today of a somewhat underseen multipart (as yet unfinished) MovieStorm project from Kibishipaul...
Jekyll and Hyde (Part 1)

Monsters - Production Screen #1

I am not too sure about whether its good form to duplicate information so I'll just say I finally started a production thread for Monsters of the Atomic Age.  I'll post the production stills here but leave out the description cause duplication is the devils playground.  Or something.
