Update 3/25


I Bagged a Noob has been started and is about 1/3 of the way through on it's first draft. We're going to story board this video then redo shots syncing the head bobbing. Hopefully this will be well recieved, since it's not as high octane as our previous "anthems." I will remind you guys that this song will be available to download for FREE since it's a parody. I'll upload it to filefront.com when the video is released.

In other news, Artiic has agreed to collaborate with us on the GoW Rap. This shall be an even more impressive video now that he's on board. Incase you didn't the first time, check out his stuff here.

Also the poll wrapped up and once again we got predictable results; it was pretty much half and half. 52% the people liked only our style of rap videos and the other 48% liked rap in general. Fortunately there were no stubborn people who voted on hating all rap. I'll think up another poll to post.

I Bagged a Noob


Sorry for the little Hiatus, but now that I have my new computer I will dive into making I Bagged a Noob (I wanted to wait to get the computer before I started a new project). The songs short so the video shouldn't take long to make, that is all for now.

Gears of War Rap Coming!!


We're now doing a Gears of War Rap. It will have the same take as the CoD Rap and The Greatest Ever. So this will be about how good skullkruncher13 is at Gears of War...though he has never played the game. Though he called on the community to help him and it should turn out all good. Since this is our most requested video, much care and polishing will go into it.

We're going to try and get clips from ArTiiC, who is an insane GoW player that I know. I have yet to talk to him on the subject, but I'm sure he'll oblige.

Check out his stuff here.

Don't forget to check out the forum :)

Forum is up!


I finished working on the forum. I think it's all set, but if there's anything wrong be sure to tell me.

you can get to the forum here

Be sure to favorite that page and become an active member in our fledgling community.

Also I Bagged a Noob is going to be delayed a bit, since I'm getting a new computer very soon. I'll settle myself with that before I really start something new. But hey, we released two videos in a matter of 2 weeks...you guys have been spoiled. :)

The Poll on what video people like most is finished. Seventy-two people cast votes, which was 20 times more than I ever thought. So I'm happy about that. The end results were no surprise; The CoD Rap was liked the most followed by The Greatest Ever, Left 4 Dead Rap and then Straight Outta Russia.

That is all for now, be sure to check out the forum.

Logo Polling


We are about to include our fans in making the next big decision for us; our production logo. Between skullkruncher13 and I we'll make 4 logos and let you guys choose. We'll post YouTube videos when it's all set, but look forward to that in the near future!

In other news; I'm working on a forum to get you guys even more included. :)

We can't appreciate you all enough,

Halo Wars

Halo Wars


This post is dedicated to encourage you guys to check out Halo Wars for the Xbox 360. I recently purchased it and it was well worth my buck. The game is well polished and is presented so well. The cinematics in this game are also top notch and I even found myself playing the campaign to just be able to watch the damn cinematics. For Halo fans the new story and take on things will be a sweet treat as well as seeing Spartans together in a group.

The gameplay is also very fitting for a console. After no time you'll be whipping orders out and jumping around the battlefield with ease. The online also is really well done and really addicting, just before posting this I played and saw 4 hours go by in the blink of an eye...the games that addicting. For those of you iffy on the Real Time Strategy genre; keep in mind this game isn't your typical RTS, this game was made with heavy emphasis on action and you'll find yourself duking it out 90% of the time. Or better yet just download the demo on Xbox Live Market Place and see for yourself.

So if you already have this game or need someone to play this with, hit up patfan8326 with a message saying you want to play. Granted if he's online and not in the middle of a match he'll be sure to get in a game with you.

So what are you waiting for...check out Halo Wars

Update 3/7


The Halo 3 Rimz was a great success. Overall is got the most positive reception of all our videos. Also the Left 4 Dead is still steaming ahead getting 40,000 views since my last post!

Our next project will be I Bagged a Noob, which parodies Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl. We should finish that in no more than 3 weeks.

Also scroll down to check out the "About Us" section to get to know us a little better.

Update 3/5


Just a reminder to those of you new to us; we do have a song available for download. It is the rap entitled "The Greatest Ever." To find it search JT Machinima. It is based off of Halo 3 and was our first music video. The version thats for sale is not the original though since we couldn't sell the song with the Halo Theme for the background. The new version is much better to listen to independent from the video and the quality is overall better.

Also we plan on making a full album of songs to be available to you guys (old news). We will also have some songs that you all will be able to download for free since they are parodies and someone else's intellectual property. One is Camper's Paradise and the other is I Bagged a Noob. They parody Coolio's Gangsters Paradise and Katy Perry's I Kissed a girl.

Those two songs are finished and we'll set to finishing the music videos soon. The songs will be released when the videos are. Video production will start this coming weekend.

Also the Left 4 Dead Rap couldn't have been a better sucess, we didn't see that coming at all. It's on the verge of already reaching 100,000 views in a week, which took the Halo 3 Rap a month to get. For those of you thinking that Zoey's voice sounded like a 12 year old...what do you expect a girls voice to sound like? Of course it's going to be relatively high-- she's a girl! People these days...haha.

Halo 3 Rimz on Machinima


For those of you who follow our blog will get the treat of seeing the Halo 3 Rimz rap first. It's posted on Machinma.com and will be on YouTube by the end of the week.

Halo 3 Rimz Video

Also we're in the midst of making up logos for JT Machinima and we're planning on letting you guys chosing it by means of survery.

If you were wondering about the survey we have currently it was just to see if people actually look at this blog. Fortunately people do and it's cool to know people like our work enough to follow, thanks. Regardless it's cool to document our progress with these posts and will be cool to look back on in the future.

For those of requesting a Gears of War Rap; we do want to make one, but don't expect it soon. Skullkruncher doesn't own the game and has played it like once before. As you can imagine it'd be pretty hard to write a song about a game you've barely played. With that said skull will get the game soon.

That is all for now....hope you all enjoy Halo 3 Rimz


Monday, March 2, 2009


I posted a teaser of our new Halo 3 Rimz song. It's just of the intro with warthogs fish tailing and stuff, but should serve as giving you guys an idea of how the song will be.

Halo 3 Rimz Rap


The new rap is finished and its BADASS. Expect it on in a week. That is all.



Q. I can't find the Halo Rap on iTunes.
A. Sorry it's difficult to find, but if you search JT Machinima it will pop up.

Can I add you guys on Xbox?
A. Most cases no, but if we play with you and get to know you; then we will. We just don't like accepting them at random.

Q. What do you use to make videos? How do you record game footage.
A. We use Sony Vegas 9 and use a Pinnacle Movie Box to record game footage (similar to the Dazzle).

Q. What do you use to make your songs?
A. Garage Band

Q. Can I help you guys with your videos?
A. Sure, but we'll let you guys know via this blog that we need help.

Q. (more of a demand than a question) Put CoD Rap on iTunes.
A. Be patient, we're working together a complete album to release which will include the CoD Rap.
