    Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid!

    Hey everyone!

    I rarely post anymore... not because i dont want to, I've just been really damn busy.

    Anyway, I just wanted to share what I have been up to these days. I have been making a movie. It has been a hell of an experience so far. 2006 has been a year of growth for me. I have learned all sorts of fun special effects, neat camera tricks, and a ton of other things! It's been a hell of a ride!

    With that, I will post what matters most, some photos, and a video or 2. Enjoy. If you want to keep up to date on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis, check out myspace.com/maxneptune.

    John

    Dr. Agotch!

    Some behind the scenes stuff. The first one is a tentacle for a evil charater in the movie... and the other is a video that is on location in the boiler room of my work. It is the evil Dr. Agotch's giant squid!





    Say! I like his work too... thats pretty cool. Is he fairly well known?

    I would say so. He's always super popular at comic-con, and he always has a huge booth set up there!

    Thing!

    Long time no see. I guess both of our "jobs" have kept us away from the boards as of late.

    The movie is looking awesome. Keep it up. I will send you a myspace friend request so I know what is going on.

    Yeah, I havent been coming here not because i dont want to... Its just a matter of not having alot of time. Really sucks, i miss chatting with all of my friends here at the org. But soon enough, i will be back, and I will finally have my movie done. Hell, I can recall not long ago asking everyone here at the org what everyone would like to see in a sci-fi movie... and I remembered what everyone said they really would like to see. I think everyone will be surprised when its done.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH...

    I hope all is well with everyone, I will keep you posted as more updates happen.

    Ok, here is another update to my film, "Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid!"

    This is a lo res test shot for the film. Here is Max and Mara rocketing into the city. This wont even be the take we settle with, this was something that was thrown together to make sure we could actually accomplish the shot we were hoping for... Im happy to say it will be a sucsess!

    Test footage of the X-1 with Live action



    Here is another shot. This is a test to see how well we can make cars flip over on the road. The X-1 wonít be the reason these cars flip over in the movie... But for test purposes, it works well.

    Hey Everyone,

    I feel like this is my home away from home that i never keep in contact with these days. I hope all of you are doing well.

    I thought I would stop by and update all of you on my progress with my movie. It is coming along really well. In 2 weeks we should have a trailer ready to upload to youtube.com. But in the meantime, here are some photos of this past weekend's shoot.











    I had to play too...




    Here is some behind the scene footage of the shoot from last weekend.









    the trailer for my movie will be out soon.

    Burp.
