Film Noobs

I had a fun time talking to David Mendez of the Film Noobs podcast about Robotica Destructiva and other projects. See it here:

Emerald Universe

We had a lot of fun making Robotica Destructiva (now available on Amazon Prime Video). Check out this collection of bloopers and behind-the-scenes footage.

The Construction of Destruction

Check out this short documentary about my fellow bandmates and cohorts, The Killer Robots and the making of our latest movie Robotica Destructiva.

Robotica Destructiva

My newest feature film, Robotica Destructiva premieres at The Enzian January 6th, 2023 as part of their Freaky Fridays series.

Strobo, Max, Auto and Trog once again find themselves hurtling from one adventure to another but this time they are antagonists to a trio of android warrior sisters activated to retrieve a doomsday device from them. Amber Belko, Torie Martin and Kristal Theron take on the roles of the warrior sisters, Mytra, Azalla and Luna.

The movie combines practical costumes, effects and people with digital sets, spaceships and environments. It was a lot of fun to make and we think you’ll have a lot of fun watching it. Look for a streaming release sometime in Spring 2023.

I Am Robot You Are Not! Animated Series

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.

Animated Music Video “Depressurization”

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!

Recyclable Barbarian Battle Machines

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.

Thanks for checking in.  Next week, more stuff.
