ring ring ring ring

banana phone!


...nevermind, I'm pretending I'm not working late and I don't have to finish this design so I can leave.

In other news, script will be done tonight, footage probably fairly soon, dialog fairly soon after that. So I'd say about 2 weeks at most till episode 15 (which is now looking like it might have grown to be 40 minutes long).

P.S. Strangely I've been getting a lot more negative comments on Barney's Mind than usual. Meh, whatever, it doesn't really bother me, more just weird. Yes, I know that my original episodes are crap. Yes, I know that I'm not as good as Ross Scott. Yes, I know that there's plenty of things I could have done better.

Whatever, I'm still learning and I'm spending so much time on Episode 15 as kind of a proof of concept that I can be as good as Ross Scott. Or at least I'm going to try to be.

P.P.S. Blarg, I guess I have to get back to work.

  4. You may get more bad comments because Ross Scot stopped making new FM videos and now people are angry and start to criticize everything that is not Freeman's Mind.

    I think your videos are great. I'm checking everyday for updates and can't wait to see Episode 15 :)

  10. Your voice acting has really improved. I went back through all your episodes and I can really appreiciate how much better you are doing.
    I know some folks write unpleasant things but I see you getting better and better. I think some pop culture references are good and not stealing. I think the hardest thing is keeping stuff fresh and to come up with new stuff because these games are repetitive.
    I loved the reference to "42". Maybe something on an improbability factor gag, or I have more time in space/low grav than anyone outside of NASA. I never played Blue Shift, but did most of the HL1,2 and the episodes.
    Maybe something on them programing the computers for climate change in England. Or I am going to make everyone hurt like I do. Or a coverup. How am I going to get chicks if they cover this up. Damn I should have gotten the cell phone that takes pictures.

    If you need a female alto for voice acting? I'd be happy to help out.

  11. I don't know, I probably will since I love to make trailers.

    Ross Scott didn't quit Machinima, he stopped working full time for them. He's still doing Freeman's Mind and Civil Protection he's just not going to be doing as much as he did this month.

    Anyway, thanks for the support guys.

  40. its by super chocolet bear

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ian + HL = Epic =3 just stating what we all know =D

    ReplyDelete
  42. To be honest I can't think of any negative comments for Barney's Mind. It's one of those series that you watch evolve, and watch the creator get better and better at it every episode, and it's really awesome. I don't know if you should remake the first three episodes. That's just my oppinion.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well, I'm gonna remake them but I'm not going to delete the originals, I agree, they do show how far I've come and I still enjoy watching them every once and a while as I'm sure you guys do too.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Absolutely... This series, and Shephard's gave me that kick to start Parker's Mind

    ReplyDelete
  45. ian u rock dude dont give a crap off those guys who say u suck the ting is they suck :P
