Ulp! Time for an update! Just started a new animated series awhile back called I Am Robot You Are Not!. It’s a series that will go about 8-10 episodes at 10 minutes each. I’m designing and animating everything single-handedly so it’s taking some time. I enjoy the process though and it’s given me lots of excuses to watch old and new cartoons for inspiration (Speed Racer woooo!). Check out iamrobotyouarenot.com and The Killer Robots YouTube channel to learn more and watch the newest episodes.
Here’s a music video I did for The Killer Robots song, “Depressurization” sung by Samuel Williams AKA Strobo. Kudos to Mike McGowan AKA Max for providing drum patterns and Charles Harris AKA Trog for being there in spirit!
The animation is a combination of After Effects, Lightwave 3D and some live action background crowds.
Looking forward to more animation projects in the future!
We’re really excited to be working with Leomark Studios to bring this movie into the world. We’ll be presenting some promo-videos as we approach the release date so keep a look out for bloopers, clips, behind-the-scenes, etc…
Also, The Killer Robots! Crash and Burn movie will be playing at the Super Geek Film Festival during Florida Supercon in Miami, Florida. The other robots and I will be set up at our filmmakers table the whole festival, so swing by and say hi if you can make it. The film will be playing their Friday, July 1st at 11pm and Monday July 4th at 8:05pm.
Hey folks! It’s been a while, but lots of developments with The Killer Robots! Finally finished up The Killer Robots! Crash and Burn movie earlier this year. We’re currently working with a distributor to get it out into the world and are hoping for a mid-July release. Stay tuned for updates here and at killerrobots.tv. In the meantime here is the full length trailer!
I’ve just figured out that if I composite 10 different shots per day I should have a rough cut of the Killer Robots Next Movie by then end of December (2013). The workload is somewhat daunting but the notion that the film could be finished by February is inspiring.
Here’s a shot of some model work and compositing. I like the abstract form it takes on when frozen.
Just another Sunday afternoon waiting for a 4 second shot to render – 9 hours and 4 minutes to go. In the meantime I’ve been putting some thought into how how better to promote the new Killer Robots movie. Unfortunately, I’m not too fond of promoting. As someone hoping to be a successful artist and filmmaker, I realize this is something I should probably put more energy into.

So in the spirit of promotion, here is a shot of actor, Scott Yuken as a club-wielding barbarian battle machine. One of hundreds and the reason the above described shot is taking so long. Can you guess what recyclables were incorporated into this costume? This is of course assuming that Scott is not actually an android sent from the future to help us finish our movie.
