Short Films and Video GamesHey guys and gals,

So the semester is over at long last and I've managed to survive relatively unscathed! Its been an interesting, albeit very all-consuming month as far as my attention and focus has been concerned. To which I think I went overboard in how I allocated my time due to how anxious I was about shooting my first short film but that overreaction definitely paid off in the long run. Still, at least I now know that it's possible to juggle that workload and still have time to update here!

The short film has been pretty successful, I screened it to a few of my peers before its final screenings and the reactions I received were certainly more than generous. One of my crew members from the shoot actually cried and I had to offer them a hug I think I was one of three people in my class who didn't film a comedic sketch so it definitely stood out! If you'd like to see the film, I'll post the link right below this paragraph. Please let me know what you think!
Last Call

In other news, I received a very pleasant surprise at my door today when I signed for a large box addressed to me and discovered the following:

Turns out 9 generous Aussie RT users decided to buy me an Xbox One for my 23rd birthday! Oh yeah, I turned 23 on the 27th for those who don't know but it's okay, I can hold a grudge. I was completely speechless when it happened, in fact, when I first saw the words "Xbox One" printed on the side of the box, I basically jumped back like it was a bomb and loudly uttered the words "Oh My God..."

So I would just like to take a moment to address all of my fellow RT fans by saying
"You're all insane... But I wouldn't have it any other way."
Many thanks!

I swear I'm not doing this intentionally*Sean crawls out of the smouldering wreckage as we see one of his arms is actually a cybernetic prosthetic. Catching his breath, he stands up straight*

Long story short, my absence has not been a deliberate action.

Sorry guys, its taken me a bit of time to get used to a full study load at University and it's the first time I've had four classes to deal with (alongside my other projects) since I was in High-School so it has taken some doing.

But I'll let you know some of the key things that have been going on:

The review writing is still going strong and Sticky Trigger Entertainment is continuing to grow in its readership. The editors are ambitious and are actively working towards making this venture a paying gig for their staff members as well as themselves. I'm very excited for them to make this leap after having come to know them personally, but also because... I would really like a paying job.

I'm currently in the middle of pre-production for my first student short film. There's not a lot of time to organize everything but I'm revising the screenplay and continuing to develop the shot-list as well as the shooting list. Our assignment calls for us to make a 1 to 2 minute short film involving a theme of our choice but cannot involve synchronous sound. Meaning we shoot the footage on one day and record the audio on another day. I feel very confident with the story I have in mind as well as the shooting style I have planned and I'll let you know when I have a finished copy I can upload for viewing.

Still propmaking, by the way! However I have decided to rebuild the ODST helmet as well as the Chest Piece as the former was too small and the latter was too big but just had a myriad of problems that were quite simply my own fault. So here's the rebuilt chest piece prior to the first coat of resin I put on the outside the other day:




Edit: Admittedly I posted some old photos of the previous chest piece by mistake. My bad, it's 3AM here and I'm a little tired.

9 YearsOn the 23rd of July, 2005 I took the opportunity to exploit a brief change in the age requirement of the Rooster Teeth membership policy and signed up for an account here. So here's to 9 nine years of posting my personal brand of random nonsense while gathering some of the closest friends I've ever had the privilege to know. As you can see, I celebrated the occasion in the best way I know how:


The prop making is still progressing, by the way. I'm also currently re-building a chest piece for that Carter helmet in the above photo as I felt that I made too many mistakes on the last one. Here's how that's looking so far:



Happy 9 Years of Rooster Teeth mayhem!

Some peopleI just wanted to get this off my chest somewhere, earlier this week I had to attend the funeral of a close friend's mother who passed away rather suddenly recently.

It was a nice service, my friend and his father wrote a very succinct and sincere eulogy which was followed up by a very well played guitar performance by my friend in accordance with his mother's previously expressed wishes.

My friend, his brother and his father had managed to construct a beautiful tribute to their loved one and the image of my friend -one of the most physically and emotionally strong individuals I've ever known- burying his face in his palm as he broke down was one of the most painful sights I have ever witnessed thus far.

Now with this in mind...

Why the fuck would you approach him after the service to ask if buying a Harley Davidson would be a good idea as an investment property?

In what pluperfect reality would this seem like a good idea, let alone following up this inquiry by asking him if he could drive the motorcycle to your house because you don't have a motorcycle license yourself? Are you fucking kidding me?

Congratulations guy. Really. Congratulations on exemplifying the art of ignorant cuntistry in the extreme with one swift stroke, you douchebag.

...

Nobody even knows who the fucker was either! He was a friend of a friend who just happened to be there and they were the only two people who didn't dress in formal wear to the occasion.

Carry On.

I totally forgot to post about thisSorry about the delay on this, we had technical difficulties with the companion photo album (which ended with us saying "screw it", so we threw it up on Facebook) and then I got swarmed with additional review work as well as University assignments.

So I was meaning to show you guys this for a while, I mentioned it in a few previous journals and those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook will recall this but back in early April I had the chance to go to the Melbourne Supanova Expo. One of the things that brought me there, aside from the fact that I was writing an article about the convention, was the fact that the IRL Shooter guys had set up their own booth.

Some of you might remember the name "IRL Shooter" as a couple of years ago (about a month before I went to Texas) I got a whole bunch of friends together to participate in their game "Patient 0". Patient 0 was a real world First Person Shooter that pitted 6 players with the company's 1st Generation M4 Carbine replicas (which fire IR Lasers) against a warehouse (with a fully customized level design) containing teams upon teams of actors dressed up as zombies. I even uploaded a rather poorly edited video of my team's experience of that event. So, now they're coming back to Melbourne for their sequel to Patient 0 called "Lazarus" and it's currently in the middle of being crowdfunded right now. They've also made some pretty impressive improvements with their gear since 2012.



Anyway, the thing I've really been wanting to show you guys is when I got to try out The Pain Belt! This is a new optional add-on to their game, the zombie actors are equipped with IR Sensors so when they get too close to someone wearing a Pain Belt, the belt shocks the player with a few volts directed straight to the abdominal muscles. So naturally, I decided to let my oldest brother shoot me while I was wearing it. Enjoy!

In other news, I'm a couple of weeks away from the end of the first Trimester of Uni. I'm looking forward to the break and still giving it my best in the process but they're not making it easy. Still, almost there. I've happened upon a job opportunity in the last few days, I'm following it up and hopefully I'll hear something in the next few days. Then I can finally buy the materials I need to keep building the Spartan Suit(s)! So fingers crossed!
I'm also thinking I'll go ahead and start making the cardboard paper layers of some of the other suits. Maybe I'll get started on an ODST helmet next. I'll be sure to post photos when I can!

So I went to a short film shootI received a Facebook message from an old acquaintance from High-School on Sunday asking me if I'd like to help out on the set of a student film shoot. He was acting as the Director of Photography for the film; I never had a full on one-to-one conversation with the guy in the past and we don't even go to the same University. However we were always on good terms and he's historically demonstrated himself to be a nice guy so I accepted the offer to help out as Best Boy and to take some Production Stills throughout the shoot.

After all, everyone says Swinburne is the University to attend for Film & Television in Victoria and they're right. So it would be silly of me to turn down the offer as not many Deakin students get the offered the same olive branch.

We were scheduled to shoot from 5:30PM-4:00AM



It was very fun, very informative, the crew as well as the actor all got along with each other (including myself) and a few of the crew members expressed interest in working with me in the future.
