Just A Day In ClayWorld 4: Should I do it?

2008-12-08 12:26:18 by TamiyaGuy

I have written this blog to ask you people a question. I've made three clay movies so far, ranging from novice atttempts at humour to (in my opinion at least) quite well-done pieces of work. So, I ask you: Should I continue it? To help you decide for me, I'll list some pros and cons.

First off, the bad stuff. Because this is a clay movie, and because I have my exams/revision in store for me, if I do this it will take A VERY LONG TIME. There might be entire months when I don't have the time to do it, or if I just don't want to. I have big plans for JADICW 4, so it seems just a little intimidating to me.

Now, the good stuff. This is a big project of mine, and if I'll be able to pull it off, it will be MASSIVE. If I go along with my sketchy plans, start thinking 10+ minutes and, possibly, splitting it into two sections. I have also purchased some proper camera gear, tripods, remote cable releases, etc, which, while not actually for the clay movies (for my photography instead), will help a lot.

So there you have it. Please, please comment saying whether you would like to see it continued or not. Also, my NEW GARRY'S MOD MOVIE, "When Chaos Collides" is here! Enjoy it!

Hello, Newgrounds! Been a while, eh? Just calling to say that Just A Day In ClayWorld 3 is now uploaded onto NG!!! In UNDER a year! SEE IT HERE: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/

You might not have noticed it, but I've been away for a while, mainly because my computer has crashed AGAIN. But it was a proper crash this time. It was down for a good 2 weeks, but luckily we've managed to get it partially fixed. It's lagging like hell now, though, so that means even MORE delays for JADICW 3. Sorry :(. Nevertheless, I've made another section (without sound), so I'm still working on it you'll be glad to hear.

I went to the first meeting of my RC club a week ago, and managed to get some nice shots of the cars. I'm posting the extra photos in my RC photos section now. I'll probably add some more photos to my General SLR photos section too.

In other news, I've got another project in the line up, called Advanced Portal Techniques. I just love the Orange Box game Portal, so I thought it would be great to make a sort of tutorial video to show some of the more advanced Portal techniqes. The movie will be a mixture of in-game footage and Flash animation However, as my computer isn't fixed yet, I can't do any of it >_<. If I et it done, it'll be on YouTube.

That's about it. Bye!

As always, feel free to visit my website, and feel free to leave comments on this one as well.

JADICW 3 and other stuff

OK, first of all, I'm afraid to say that JADICW 3 has been encountering some small delays (again). Basically, I just can't get the storyline right. Everything seems a bit too random, and I really want to get a slow storyline going. Nevertheless, I AM still chipping away at it, and hopefully it should be done in a couple of months, but I really can't tell at the moment. I'm trying my best, honest!

In other news, I've finally uploaded some photos from my 14th birthday (only 3 months late =]), so head on over to my photos section section to see those. I've also added a couple of shots to my "General SLR photos" part as well. I'm really enjoying my photography now I have the D40, and am looking into taking it further. I'll probably have some more interesting shots uploaded sometime.

For more info, head on over to my website. Comments are welcome here, too, but I get lonely over there :(

See ya!

I just found this new website today, called ilovemeow.com. Basically, it's about a million cat macros with text. They're sooo cute!!! You've just gotta see it. Some of them are a bit, you know, but the others are just great :3


My first ever pretty pointless post... wonder how many I'll have by the end of the month...

Yep, because of all the good reviews I've got for JADICW 2, I've decided to begin JADICW 3 early! I've decided to invest in a daylight bulb to make the animation clearer, but I'm not sure whether I was right to...

First post :D

Well, this keeps happening to me.. I'm just about happy with my Windows Live Spaces account (Just look here), then something new comes up that, iodds are, is much better than WLS. Oh, well. I'm too lazy to put everything I had here, so just go here (lol same place). Anyway, check out my movies here on NG: Just A Day In ClayWorld (pretty crap compared to 2), and Just A Day In ClayWorld 2 (waaaaaay better). I'm currently making JADICW 3, and a few other projects. Go see my real webpage for more info!!

Bye for now.
