Waitin' waitin' waitin'

I've finished Machinimating 4/5 scenes for In For A Penny: On All Eight. The sound is mostly done for those scenes as well. Right now, I'm waiting on pretty much two things; voice files from my main actor (I gave him two weeks, which is this Friday, so here's hoping for them!) and the background music for the song I'm going to cover. That is supposed to be ready on June 5th - hopefully that will be ready on time too. If that doesn't come through, I may have to just use the original song, but I would prefer to do the cover version.


So if I'm able to get what I'm missing, I'm hoping for Mid-June for release.

Blood Elf Men

I often get comments asking why I have a strange love of Blood Elf men. I finally have a definitive answer that I think will explain it all.

I blame 1986.

I seriously think Blizzard missed out and chose the wrong blood elf dance animation. Does it also amuse you to know that I married a red head? More as this revelation unfolds!

Only a little sexin'

I finished Scene three this morning. It clocks in at about 4 minutes alone, doesn't have the sound work done, but it has the images done, which is progress.

I liked how the two sets blended for this one. I used the trees to tie them together.
Glimmy rocks out with his bad self.

Still looking for voice acting submissions! *cough*

All Along the Watchtowers

So I've been trying to keep some up-to-date on what is going on with this movie, mostly for my own rambling (while rendering!) but also so I can point and say "I swear it's coming!"

I've been feeling it the past few days - that urge to actually push and create and get some work done. Currently, the footage I've done is over 5 minutes, and I've still got a bunch of work to do. I was hoping to not go over 10 minutes, but I've decided to let the pieces fall where they may, and if it's longer, then it's longer.

There's a lot of work to do even on the footage I've done, mostly concerning sound - voice actors (still looking for my lead! *cough*), music (I'm actually going to cover the songs that the singer on stage does; wtb pianist), and background sounds. My husband pampers me too much in some ways, apparently he ordered a new mic and sound box for me. One of the scenes I've done I'm having trouble feeling a bit, mostly because of sound. I'll see what I can do with it though.

I'm very happy though with how the lounge act is coming out. I spent a good amount of time creating the set, and it was worth the time investment.


I think a couple people who poke around this blog might recognize that woman walking down the stairs. I think she has more cameos in machinima than I can count. =O

What was the point of this blog? Um... it's 7:30am and I haven't slept yet! That's a good reason to post, right?

Olibith Tribute

Khandy released her second installment of "What Else Is On?" this week, a tribute to our favorite pervy gnome, Olibith. Originally, I was feeling crappy for a week and passed on the opportunity to do a short for it, then went "*bonk* what the hell where you thinking?"

My tribute for Olibith had to include fangirls, a gnome, and nudity... how else could you even start to make one?? I mean really! It's Olibith we are talking about here!


It has it's flaws, but considering I threw it together in one evening, I think it came out alright. =) I'd also like to thank Justin Miller, who did the voice acting for the troll. The samples he's sent me for just about everything are pretty damn awesome.


In any case, I hope you enjoy mine and all the other machinimists who contributed. The last four clips are from myself, Silet, Legs and Mark Gilbert, respectively. Much love to Khandy for putting the whole project together.

And as for Olibith... love the gnome. Be one with the gnome... especially if you love hent- err... love machinima.

(Oh, and Matt for googling pictures of cameras for me. He demanded to be credited! Short Circuit porn for all! Wait, that's not it... oh and Matt. You. Voice files. Now. You shouldn't have told me Carol got you a new microphone.)
