1057!!

1057 is the number of emails I have in my email inbox today after having gone away for a little over 3 days. About 90% of them are from YouTube.

So, as always, I will read them all but forgive me if I don't reply to all (or even many) of your comments since I have almost 1000 to go through.

Anyway, had a good holiday, I'll make a more interesting post later.

Hey guys, had a minor hickup, some of my airplane footage ran away so I had to re-record it.

Anyway, should have the episode done in an hour or two.

Episode 15 update

Hey, wouldn't it be hilarious if I didn't release Episode 15? Yeah, I thought you'd agree with me. Ok, sounds like a plan.







....heh, alright, Episode 15 it is. Just wanted to let you guys know that all the dialog has been recorded, only thing left to do is edit everything together. Should have it done sometime late tomorrow (or very, very early x-mas eve). I'll make a post here with a more precise time once I know more.

P.S. Episode 1 is about 2,000 views from hitting 100,000!! Holy fudge muffins that's awesome!

Avatar movie = AWESOME

Okay, so I just got out of the movie Avatar and, without giving this out lightly, it is the best movie I've ever seen. Seriously, I think it's impossible to not like this movie. I'm sure some people won't like it as much as I do but, damn, this movie is awesome in the literal meaning of that word.

After I got out I would have turned right around and went back in for the next show if it wasn't sold out and if I had brought my car and wasn't riding with my family. Totally going to see it again tomorrow.

Seriously, see it, preferably in 3D. This is one movie I don't think anyone will want to miss, I doubt anyone will like it as much as I do but seeing as the theater I was in had a standing ovation at the end, you'll probably like it.

Audition Winners and Episode 15 ETA

Alright! Awesome auditions guys, I had TONS of people submit auditions and they were all great, I'm totally serious in saying that it was very hard to narrow it down to three people. Yes, three people. You see, I had someone lined up to do douchbag but he dropped out at the last minute. So without further adieu, the winners;

Douchbag will be played by: corky064
the Fighter Pilot will be played by: danielcdawson
and the military ATC will be played by: emperorpsymon

Congratulations everyone! This has been so much fun. Don't worry if you didn't get in, I have plans for something shortly after new years in which everyone can have part in the video that wants one.

The other thing I wanted to announce is that Barney's Mind - Episode 15 is mere days away. I have the script done, the filming is being finished today (took me forever to get the FSX stuff all setup) and 1/3 of the dialog is done. So, all that remains is some of my dialog and the guest actor's dialogs and the editing and it'll be done!

Latest it will be out is the 24th but I hope to have it out a few days before that. This video is more or less my decemberween present to everyone as well as my present for you guys getting episode 1 up to 100,000 views! (zomg)

Anyway, thanks for all your support guys, I hope you enjoy this episode a lot.

Want to be on Barney's Mind?

SO! Here's your big chance to help me out.

I have a pretty big part and a pretty small part that I need some voice acting done for. I have a few people locally who could help me do it but I figure it will be a lot more fun for two of you guys (or gals) to do it.

So, here's the deal. I need a person for a fighter pilot and a person to play an air force air traffic control person. You don't need a good mic for this since you're supposedly talking over a radio and I'm going to make your voice a little crackly anyway.

To apply, message me here, on YouTube, or on steam with links to a sound file with your audition. I'll pick the best one and we'll go from there.

Audition details:

First off, you're supposed to be a mature adult person so if you're 15 and under and sound like you're 15 and under don't bother applying.

Anyway, the audition for the fighter pilot is going to be three lines, the audition for the ATC person is one line.

Fighter pilot: Air Force Wing ATC, this is Echo Victor Niner One, the target is rapidly loosing altitude and changing course, I think they’re running, request permission to engage.

Fighter pilot: [sternly] Unidentified aircraft, we are currently 3 miles from your position and have locked weapons, this is your final warning, comply or you will be destroyed!

Fighter Pilot: [yelling] MAYDAY! E-V-NINER ONE GOING DOWN! MAYDAY!

ATC: Echo Victor Niner One, you are authorized to engage at your discretion.

The winner will be picked whenever I feel I have someone good enough (and I will post on here when I have someone) and will win a preview of the episode, their name in the credits, and a chance to read the full script (if they want too, or I can cut it down so the dialog stays a surprise). If I can't find someone good enough I'll just go with my local friends.

Good luck!

P.S. Holy crap, I just finished putting the final touches on the script and it's 13 pages long. Gah, writing what is essentially 4 episodes is a lot of work! But, that's the hard part and it's all done. Now comes the easy recording part. YAR!

P.P.S. Don't worry if you have an accent or don't sound American or something silly like that. Oh and feel free to apply for both parts.

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.
