New Video Released!!!

My latest video has been released. It is called Halo 3 Glitch - Half Infected Brutes. This video is partially a test to see the best HD quality I can produce. So check it out and see the new quality as well as the full widescreen format. 

You can also watch the video on this blog. I put all of our most recent videos at the bottom of this page. Take a look if you want.

While doing my Time Travel Glitch on the Covenant, I had spotted a UFO. It flew past my Hornet and caused my Hornet to fail and crash in the water which caused me to die. I managed to go to Theater Mode and get a closeup screenshot of the UFO. Take a look. 

It's unlike anything I have ever seen in Halo 3. You can see an outline of my Hornet in the background. It flew over my Hornet which, as I've said, caused my Hornet to stop working. I'll see if I can manage to make a video of it for Youtube. In the meantime, I should have my next video on Youtube by Friday. It will be about the Half-Infected Brutes. The Machinima will come out soon. Just not yet.

New Video For Now...

As I've said in the last post, my Machinima is going to be delayed for now. It's 95% complete right now. All that's left is some of the voice parts. So, in the meantime, I'm going to release a new video withing the next two days. It is a recently discovered glitch which is still somewhat of a mystery to us. We are going to call the video: Halo 3 - Half Infected Brutes Glitch. 

This video also has a second purpose. It is to test how well my video looks in full widescreen and HD. If all goes well, then my machinima will follow this video. So stay tuned!

Updates on the Machinima

It seems my upcoming Machinima will have to be delayed a bit longer. The problem is that I need more voice actors. Using my own voice isn't enough. Once I have enough voice actors, we will finish the movie and release it as soon as possible.

The True Reason Why I'm Quitting

As you all should know, I will stop making videos for Youtube soon. Once I reach 100 videos there will be no more. Why am I doing this? Well, as I mentioned before, I am a lot more busy now with school. But that's not the full reason. 

The main reason I am quitting is because PEOPLE ARE STEALING MY VIDEOS. I'm not just talking about people who remake my videos and say they are the founder of whatever glitches the video is about. I'm talking about the people who somehow download my videos and reupload them. They attempt to claim they are the owner by removing the titles and credits I have added, and then replace them with their own saying they are the founders. I am sick and tired of these people. 

So, to end all this stealing of my videos. I will stop making videos once I reach 100. After that point, anything new I discover will not be put on Youtube. So, even if I discover some secret weapon or secret vehicle, I will not post it anymore. You can thank the people who steal my videos. Enjoy my last few videos.

Widescreen Problems

I have decided to make the whole movie in widescreen now for Youtube. However, I had to re-encode everything. While the transition was pretty smooth for the most part, there are some small problems with the audio. So for now, progress on the Machinima is going backwards a bit. But don't worry, I'll have the problems fixed within a week. Stay tuned for more updates!

Possible Widescreen Format

I have figured out how to get my videos to fit in the widescreen format for Youtube. So from now on, all of my videos will be in widescreen and they will still be in HD format. However, my recent and upcoming machinima has been encoded in standard resolution. This means that if I want to get my machinima to fit in widescreen, I'm going to have to re-encode all of the video clips in it. I could do that, but it will delay the release date of the video which is sometime next week. I have created a poll for you to vote in to decide what you want the next Machinima to look like.

Time Travel - A Halo 3 Machinima F.A.Q.s

I've been getting a lot of questions about our upcoming Machinima. So, I thought I'd answer them here.

Q: Is this a movie about your Time Travel glitch?
A: No, this machinima has nothing to do with the Time Travel Glitch.

Q: What is the relation between this movie and your Time Travel Glitch?
A: There really isn't any relation. However, it is true that this movie is a reference to the Time Travel Glitch since it was one of my most popular glitches.

Q: How long is the movie?
A: Currently, it is about 22 minutes, but that could increase to 25 minutes.

Q: What are you making this? I thought your last Machinima was your last?
A: I did say the last one was my last, but I decided to make one more.

Q: What do you use to record your movie?

Q: What do you use to edit your movie?
A: I use Windows Movie Maker. I know there is better stuff out there, but Movie Maker is really all I need to make a good machinima.

Q: Will there be 10 year olds voicing the movie?
A: This video will mainly feature about 2-3 people's voices. Everyone is generally new to my machinimas. I will be voicing most of the movie though. 

Q: When will this movie come out?
A: I will announce the official release date soon. But for now, you can expect it to be released before the end of January.

Problems... (But a treat for those who read)

Alright, I'll get right down to the point. Uploading to Veoh.com is currently not the best idea anymore. This is because they no longer syndicate videos to Youtube. I originally wanted to post with them so they might be able to put videos longer than 10 minutes on my Youtube channel. However, I have found a new site that will do the same thing. That sight is called TubeMogul.com. I am currently in the process of testing their service. So stay tuned!

You've all been patiently waiting for weeks for my new Machinima to come out. It won't come out this week but it should come out before this month is over. Maybe even next week! But anyways, to ease your curiosity of what this movie is about, I'm going to release the synopsis (plot). 

This movie begins with a curious scientist who wants to discuss the possibilities of Time Travel with a fellow professor. However, his friend rejects his ideas. Determined that he can still achieve Time Travel, the scientist walks away saying he will bring back some proof. 2 years later, the scientist has finished a prototype of his Time Machine. He immedietly uses it to travel to the future to look for something to bring back. He stops travels about 1,000 years into the future as his first stop. 
Here the Time Traveller asks a few questions to the people of Philadelphia in the year 3,007. He even gets a free tour of the city. However, not finding anything interesting to bring back, he decides to continue traveling into the future. This time he only travels 5 years before he notices something is wrong with the city. 
As soon as he gets out of the Time Machine, he is immedietly arrested because he is not at an evacuation center. One of the cops mention that the city is under attack by powerful aliens. Suddenly, the ground shakes due to an alien seismic bomb. The Time Traveller escapes from the cops who drive away. He then runs to his Time Machine and begins going to the future again. 
He is now very curious about who is going to win the war. While he is time travelling, he watches the City of Philadelphia collapse. Several hundred thousand years later, he watches the planet go through an Ice Age. The finally, after millions of years, the Ice Age is over and it appears that civilization has begun again. 
He leaves the Time Machine to talk to someone nearby. This person says he is the leader of the resistance against the Hunters. Before the Time Traveller could ask who the Hunters are, a Horn sounds and the Hunters have come to hunt the villagers. 
Now the Time Traveller must help to liberate these villagers from the Hunters and their mysterious leader.

Hope you enjoy the movie!!!

Uploading to Machinima.com

It seems several of you have voted to have me upload my next and final machinima onto Machinima.com. I have considered this option and I am currently still reviewing my options with Machinima.com. While I already have an account with them, I am not sure if I want to upload to them. There are several reasons why I am hesitant. 

  1. My video isn't guarenteed to make it on Youtube through Machinima. 
  2. In terms of views, I wouldn't get much through Machinima, or Veoh
  3. In my opinion, my Machinima probably can't compete with the true professional machinimas like the ones that DigitalPh33r makes.
So, I'm most likely not going to upload to Machinima.com. But, I have considered a new option. I might upload to Google Video. I will still upload to Veoh though.

Decision Made!

I have decided how I am going to post the next Machinima. I will split it into 2 parts on Youtube. Both parts will be in HD quality. After that, I will upload the full video to Veoh.com. I will post the link on my Youtube Channel. Since posting to Veoh takes awhile, I will post on their website first. So those of you who visit Veoh.com a lot will get to see my next machinima first. The Youtube version of my machinima will be posted soon after I finished posting it on Veoh.com. I will give more updates as information becomes available. Feel free to keep voting in the polls as I may change my mind.

Less Compromises

In my last post, I stated that the next machinima was probably going to be well over 1 GB. But I guess I was wrong. I have most of the video finished right now and it is at 999.7 MB. Just about 0.3 MB away from 1 GB. Now that is my video without the voice parts. After I add the voices, it should go up, but not way past 1 GB. So basically, I can split the video on Youtube, and still have both parts in HD quality. I'm currently looking for alternate websites to post the full video. I'm still considering Machinima.com but most likely I won't do that. 

If anyone knows any video sharing sites besides Youtube, post a comment on this post and I might consider uploading to that site. 


There are several problems with our next machinima movie being on Youtube.
  1. The video is over 10 minutes so we can't upload it on Youtube.
  2. The video's file size will be fairly large, probably over 1 GB, so we can't upload it.
  3. Due to the large file size, HD quality is going to be a problem
Here are our compromises to these problems.
  1. We split the video into two parts. Then we upload the full video on other sites like Veoh.com or Hulu.com
  2. After splitting the video, each parts should be just about under 1 GB
  3. Even after splitting the video, the files may still be too large if we go HD. So we may have to forget about HD quality for this video. We should still be able to release it in High Quality.
To those of you who never heard of Veoh or Hulu, they are video sites just like Youtube. Only they don't have as many video limitations as Youtube does. This means we can upload videos with even better HD quality than Youtube without size limitations. Plus, we can upload the entire movie without having to split it in two parts. Currently, the estimated length of the movie will be around 20 minutes. Our longest but best movie yet. Stay tuned for more details.

Time Travel - A Halo 3 Machinima

This will be my next machinima. The name is still being debated upon but for now, this is what we're going to name it. So, for the next week or even the next two weeks, you may not see any new videos on my channel. This is because I will be focusing all of our resources on finishing this new machinima. In fact, it's already half way done. 

Now this Machinima, it will be my final one. I realize in my previous movie, Officer Bob The Unsuccessful Cop, I said that it was my final one. Well, I decided to make one more. The machinimas I made before Officer Bob were all attempts at dramatic action movies. Those attempts failed obviously. So, this Time Travel movie, will be my final attempt at a non-comedic action movie. Officer Bob was a comedy which was semi-successful in my opinion. 

I won't release anymore details on this movie for now. I will only tell you that it will be good! It will have more people in it who are better actors. Plus, the music that will be in the movie will greatly enhance the drama. So, stay tuned for more details!!!

UPDATE: We do have a slight problem with this video. It's going to be longer than 10 minutes which we won't be able to upload onto youtube without splitting it in two parts. So here is our solution. We will upload two parts onto Youtube. We will then upload the full movie onto Veoh.com which is like a second Youtube. I'm also considering uploading to Machinima. But we will talk about that later.
