Avengers clip

I had to get this out of my system.
I usually stay away from making art for upcoming movies. They only entertain until the real trailers come out, so instead of finding audio and spending too much time making a youtube clip I just threw this together. Quick and dirty. Took about 2-3 days.
Gif's are low res but I love how easily they're copied and displayed onto browsers.
Here's the list of movies I Assembled.
Traitor, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, Ironman, Shaft, Van Helsing.

I really appreciate all the positive and hilarious feedback from everyone! Totally unexpected!

After Xmas day I shall get back to answering people. I've been running around doing crazy shopping for presents etc so I haven't really had a minute to update since I uploaded the trailer.

Thanks again!
Have a great Christmas day.

Thundercats: Sword of Omens

Finally finished. This took me about a year and a half on and off. More info coming...

The Dark Knight

Ridiculous anticipation for The Dark Knight led me to make a gif that people could paste from Forum to forum.
A nice gentlemen put it on youtube and added great music and right before it hit 1 million hits it was pulled by whomever WB, youtube.
The gif with Music.

Superman Reborn

I'm a big fan of Bryan Singers movies. I own X1 and X2 but I really wasn't feeling Superman Returns at all. I've been reading the books on and off most of my life and even as a child I remember wishing for a more high octane Superman movie featuring action on par with the cartoons. After Superman Returns I craved a villain or giant robot or just something or someone incredible for the guy to tackle, punch and shoot beams at. With that, this little trailer was born.
I made all the effects in Photoshop frame by frame. I edited each clip in Windows Movie Maker. I know, pretty limited software. I think its a great exercise having only one level to edit on. After this I was ready to step up my software.

Manips in motion

You gotta love gifs. I started fooling around with a few frames of movie footage for fun when I made my Superherohype.com avatar for my profile. This was in like 2004 I believe. A year or 2 away from Spiderman3. One night I fooled around with footage from Underworld, Spawn and Spiderman1 and 2. What followed was this rather sloppy gif below. It garnered enough attention though to inspire to make a few fake Spiderman3 trailers. I'm not really proud of any of them.
Note: remember this was made a year or 2 before ANY spidey3 footage was seen.

Blasts from the past

Here are a few manips I made for fun before venturing into motion maniping.

This Final Crisis one took a while because of wonderwoman. I grabbed season 1 on Netflix just to
find that pose of her folding her arms. Don't ask why.

Kingdom Come graphic novel blew me away back in the summer of 96. I remember reading the last issue in a coffee shop on 3rd Market San Francisco. My eyes were bulging out of they're sockets as I scanned and read each epic page. Pure epic. Inspired, I made this manip with my fantasy cast for a Kingdom Come movie.

Nearly done

My never ending trailer for Thundercats is 99% done! Any day now. I have to stop myself from adding more and more.
It's been almost a year damn it!
I WILL get this uploaded before the Holiday.
