Holidays are good and done with, so let's update!
New Whitless letter! This time it's not to a video game character!
Expanded the Ninja Reviews section to include some audio reviews I've been doing lately (mostly on movies)
Added a new Playtime series for a cute little puzzle game called Botanicula as well!
Finally, look for exciting new projects popping up in February. Con-G will be the first convention of the year and I will be all over that with video ninja shenanigans. Also, Dr. Holocaust and I have something in development that is nearing completion. That's also probably going to be released into the wild around the end of next month too!
Been a while since my last update. Sorry. Busy month.
New Whitless letter in the works. It's almost done. In the meantime, here's the last one we did.
Also, new L4D2 Shananigans video! Sometimes it's not such a bad thing to find a premise that works and just run with it.
Currently in the works is another BIG collaboration project with Doctor Holocaust. It feels good to be getting back to work with him after so long, and I must say he hasn't slowed down in terms of giving me big projects to sink my teeth into. Hopefully the end result is just as awesome as the last few times we've worked together.
I've also reworked one of my pages here into a new home for quick audio reviews of movies, games and music that I've started putting up on YouTube. The idea was to turn them into podcasts for distribution but I've got my hands full with other things at the moment, and it's really low on my priority list.
Oh and that NaNoWriMo thing? Didn't happen. Again.
"Maybe next year" ... again.
First of all, as you can see below, I achieved my goal for the Extra Life fundraiser of raising $1000 for SickKids Foundation! It was a fun weekend playing games with friends and raising money for charity doing it! Here's a series of videos recapping the experience!
Most notably from the event was my personal attempt at playing Slender, which has a Playtime video all of its own!
Speaking of Playtime, episode four of The Walking Dead was a fun playthrough! I got all the videos from that run up too! I can't wait for the final chapter next month!
With that said and done, currently I'm working on a brand new Playtime series for a new-ish game I've discovered. I haven't finished the game itself yet and I'm holding off uploading any of the videos I have gotten done until I have the game finished.
Besides that, Mai Sheri has recently returned from the New York ComicCon convention, and she has brought back with here a whole bunch of juicy footage for me to make another con video with! Apparently she's busy editing together a Nuit Blanche video from this year so she's having me take care of the NYCC! (FYI, I'm in her Nuit Blanche video from LAST year, which she's recently uploaded) I'm hoping to get some progress done on that this week before the weekend hits, as this weekend I'm also slated to help Whitless with her next letter! Busy busy!
Also next month is NaNoWriMo... no idea how I'm going to fair with giving THAT another try. >_>
Whitless and I have finished a new Whitless letter. After her poor encounter with the Slenderman in the last Playtime video we did together, it was only natural she retaliate in the way she knew best!
Two new L4D2 Shananigans videos too! The first is a traditional collection of madness, and the second was me mixing things up a bit by going it alone and giving the viewers a bit more then just my piercing screams to accompany them. The latter was instrumental in figuring out the whole face-cam during gaming thing, so expect to see that return in the future!
Currently I'm working on a new vlog for Mai Sheri. That will hopefully be up by the end of the week.
I've also signed up to participate in the annual charity fundraiser for Sick Kids Foundation by joining the Extra Life event! My latest ninja vlog explains the details.
Finished up a few videos from the summer for Mai Sheri.
Did some gaming with Whitless, including a tragically hilarious Playtime episode of Slender!
Beyond that, not much to report. Plans for another Whitless letter, some visual effects work from Doctor H and maybe a bit of vlog work from Mai Sheri here and there are up in the air right now, but that's about it!
That's fine. I don't mind the chill time. Let's me catch up on my games and movies and shows and life and stuff.
Con Bravo was a blast, and I had a rare and fortunate opportunity to interview Doug Walker from thatguywiththeglasses.com
There's going to be more video coverage of Con Bravo in the future, including the entirety of the costume masquerade! So keep an eye out for that!
This should be it for me in terms of big conventions, so hopefully I can start down the backlog of projects that I have for myself and Mai Sheri over the next few months. However, I know Dr. H is lurking around with some more FX work for me at some point, so we'll see how that plays out.
Oh, and I also finished a new L4D2 Shananigans video! You should check that out as it includes quite a lot of scenes of yours truly talking the talk then getting stomped into the ground!
I've FINALLY finished my long awaited collaboration project with Featherweight.
With this hefty project off my plate, I'm free to move on to some others on my list.
Expect some more Playtime material, including a new L4D2 Shananigans video, to appear sooner then later. The crew and I have kept up on our Friday night zombie sessions and the resulting footage is going to delight a lot of you. Whitless is also slated to join me for a few horror game related Playtime episodes down the line as well.
Speaking of which, Whitless has another letter in the works. She's acquired some new equipment that she'll be using to shoot the majority of the project herself with, but she's still going to be relying on me for the editing and visual effects.
Also, Con Bravo is slated for the end of the month too. Due to the apparent popularity of my coverage of the Anime North 2012 masquerade, I've been sought out and asked to also shoot the costume masquerade contest at Con Bravo as well! That's exciting! Let's hope it turns out well!
Got a new L4D2 Shananigans video uploaded!
This weekend was Anime North. I only did the Saturday again this year but what a Saturday! I've got my retrospective vlog online (which you can see above) and I'm charging full steam ahead on the cosplayer interview video.
After that comes the Masquerade video. It's going to be a doozy this year because not only did I shoot (and therefor have to edit) ALL of the masquerade, but I'm also packaging it up for some of the people who run the masquerade! The pressure is on! Luckily the footage turned out pretty good!
Featherweight's Atomic Robo project is also on the list but that's on the back-burner until I can get the AN stuff out of the way. Hopefully the week I took off from my job will give me enough time to get through all of this! We'll see!
Did a new Playtime series on The Walking Dead. Did the whole first episode! It's awesome! Looking forward to doing all of the rest of the episodes when they are released. Might also involve Whitless and Dr. Holocaust in the commentary! We'll see!
Finished a very small convention footage video for Mai Sheri that she shot at Ad-Astra this year.
Working on Featherweight's Atomic Robo project at the moment, but my social life has also spiked up a little bit over the last few weeks so I haven't really been sitting in front of the editing computer as much as I need to in order to get things done. I'm thinking that's alright though, but come Anime North at the end of the month I'm hoping I'm not TOO far behind! >_>
There is another L4D2 Shananigans video waiting to be put together. Hopefully that will be put together over the next few weeks. It involves the "Drew Event", which you will all not want to miss!
New L4D2 Shananigans video finished yesterday. It's a bit shorter then they usually are but there hasn't been a new one in a while so I figured I'd make do with the footage I had.
Featherweight, Mai Sheri and I completed a little skit as a promotion for a convention happening in the summer down in the states. We dressed up as characters, acted out a script, and had a full blown set of equipment for the shoot! It was brutal!
Featherweight has also handed me a visual effects project. That will be mine to chew on for the next little while. Hopefully I can pull off something that will impress him.
