Well, it’s been a while since I’ve watched and reviewed a movie, so I figured I needed to post SOMETHING.
So, here’s a little something different…two movies that I made myself a while back. They’re very short, but are just loaded with all kinds of incredible meaning and emotion.
These are both written, directed, animated, photographed, and scored by yours truly. Once Pixar, or some other animation studio gets wind of these, I’m guessing they’ll be willing to pay me ridiculous amounts of money to come work for them…it’s only a matter of time…
…any second now…
Note: yes, those are Indiana Jones Lego people
Let’s Do Magic!
Jer, those were great and i totally get the deeper meanings here. Obviously, the movement to an alternate dimension in the second movie is symbolic of our desire to escape the troubles of this world in unrealistic ways. The troubles so beautifully displayed in movie #1. Troubles manufactured by our own human desires. Turning down dates, dead family and don’t even get me started on the symbolism of the wild animal killing people. That was just brilliant film making! this is Pixar meets dadaism.
exactly what i was going for…
oh, and thanks for mentioning Pixar…made me realize that for some reason i wrote Pixel instead. that has been changed now…
Quick question… do you have a camera that allows you to do stop motion? or did you just use a normal 35mm and then string the pics together with a movie program of some sort?…. just wondering… the movies were entertaining though…. amusing with a tinge of melancholy . . .
it’s just a series of digital still shots strung together in my Pinnacle studio movie making program. though, i edited them all in photoshop to try to make the colors look a little better.

hehe, theyre great
a reviewer AND a filmmaker
now i have seen everything
Reviewer, animator, filmmaker, scriptwriter — you’re all kinds of threatening! Scorcese ain’t got nothin’ on you.
I particularly love the way you worked some “Young Frankenstein,” Marty Feldman-“what hump?” subtext into “Rhino-motion.” Genius, man.
i didn’t even think about that Young Frankenstein joke when i made it. maybe it was buried somewhere in my subconscious.
