Still here

Just want to let people know that Barney's Mind - Episode 15 is going along nicely. I almost have the script done and have 1/3 of the dialog recorded. Since I'm doing a full script the dialog will go a lot faster than usual and the video will probably not take too much time.

So, I still don't know exactly how close I am to finishing but I can guarantee it will be out before Christmas (probably well before). Aside from that, can't get much more accurate, I'll post here when I know more.

Anyway, I had a good Thanksgiving, visited my folks and helped them out, watched some movies, and did some other stuff. Finished DM'ing a Dungeon's and Dragons Campaign (I'm a nerd, shud'up :P). My car is finally fixed and inspected (like 5 months overdue, stupid car). I've been playing a lot of paintball and have been having a blast. We're going to try making a semi-scripted paintball movie for you YouTube guys so look for that in the near future.

Aside from that, not much else to report, things are going along fairly well without too much drama (but plenty of action).

So, how was your guys' holidays? Any ideas what you'll be getting for Christmas?

Felix's Mind and Stuff

First off, KrimsinYT and I both saw this new mind series called Felix's Mind using Half Life 2: Episode 1. I think it came out really well, check it out and see if you like it:

YouTube - Felix's Mind - Episode 1
YouTube - Felix's Mind - Episode 2

Great voice acting and good dialog. I hope he does more (and lets me do Barney's lines, heh).

Anyway, in other news, a new (awesome) Shepherd's Mind was released. Wow, all three series releasing episodes within a day. Totally awesome and totally not planned.

Now, the finale episode is coming up next and I'm stoked, I'm going to start working on it right away. No idea how long it will take but I hope to have it up in 2-3 weeks. This ones going to be all out as funny as I can make it. I'm going to go nuts with this one spending lots of time getting the voice acting perfect and I'm even going to be writing a full script. Also, because of some of the stuff I'm going to do I'm going to have two other people in the finale as well playing various rolls. Oh, and of course the bit with Shepherd's Mind will be in there, don't worry.

So, I think you guys will really like it. Oh, and to hold you guys over during the wait I have a few other videos I'm going to post such as another paintball video (with music this time) and some other funny stuff such as another crazy episode like episode 14? (the fake one).

Lot's of stuff to look forward too. Also, yes, after Barney's Mind I plan on making some special editions of episode 1-3 then I'm going to start two new series, one will be another mind series using Alien vs. Predator 2 (as the Marine) and the other will be a series using various video games similar to the crazy fake episode 14.

YAR.

SURPRISE!

Barney's Mind - Episode 14 (parts 1 and 2) have been released:

YouTube: Barney's Mind - Episode 14 - Part 1
YouTube: Barney's Mind - Episode 14 - Part 2

I didn't think I would get part 2 done so soon but I managed to do it all tonight! Woohoo! I had anti writers block. In fact, about 2 minutes of that whole thing were recorded in one long take, it was almost too easy.

Anyway, I think this really shows how far I've come. I think this episode is great and I really hope you guys agree. NOW! Time for the final episode. It's a half hour or more episode but I don't think it will take quite as long as episode 14 since I have 1/3 already done and I (hopefully) won't be so busy.

However, I do think it will take at least 3 weeks so don't expect anything Barney's Mind related for a while ( though I'll probably have a few more paintball videos and maybe another crazy video like Episode 14?)

Anyway, enjoy.

P.S. Another awesome Freeman's Mind - Episode 18

100th post and stuff!

Just noticed this is my 100th post. Go me!

Another thing I just noticed is that the capital of Uganda is Kampala.

Another thing I noticed is that people seem to really want Episode 14 to be done. This is quite understandable since episode 13 was released well over a month ago. I must apologize for this, episode 14 has taken a lot longer than I thought it would.

I documented my weekly time usage a while back so I'm not going to bother repeating it but, suffice it to say that I've been pretty busy over the past month. However, I would have probably had episode 14 done a week ago if it wasn't for me being ass raped by work (in a good way). Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but spending 11 hours a day in a paper mill angle grinding a steel fuel oil tank so I can perform thickness tests is not exactly something that's easy. I enjoyed it I suppose but it drained my energy and I'm just now recovering.

That said, I now have some free time back and will be devoting every hour I'm not working to Barney's Mind until it's done, I promise. I feel bad that I've kept you waiting so long and again I must apologize. Oh, and about the trailers. I know that I have too many what with the fake episode, the preview, and the trailer out but honestly the fake episode was more for fun and wasn't meant to be a trailer. The preview was put up to be a trailer because I expected to have the episode done a week ago (before work killed me) and then KingBaulin made me the trailer for episode 14 and I felt it would be rude to not put it up. Anyway, yes I know that the over-trailering has made it more of a tease than anything but, whatever, it's done.

Just hang in there a little longer, almost done (though, I suppose I should say get used to it, cause after this is the finale and that's going to take quite a long time to make).
