Update 9/27


Firefighters Ep. 1 is on Machinima's YouTube page. Click here to see it.

It seems people haven't grasped the concept of the series. It's where/how fans can get involved with their favorite YouTube channel, machinima. And, no, machinima does not need dialogue to be a "machinima." Hopefully in the next one people will understand what I'm doing.

I am also updating our Halo Machinima short, The J in JT. It's intentionally corny and cliche to add to the humor. The machinima is set in a round of multi-team matchmaking, skull and I team up to take out our enemies. They are the reds (snobish brits), the greens (little kids) and the yellows (older southern guys). Combined with awesome camera work and music hopefully you will all be enticed to see what we have in store next for machinima.

Update 9/21


One more day til ODST!!

With the coming of that game I can begin making the Firefight videos. For fans who want to get involved just stay tuned through twitter. I'll put a message up in advance telling you to message me with some specific call sign. The reason being so that I can find those messages easily in my inbox and send an invite you way ASAP. I'll put up 2 or 3 tweets prior to when we play giving details. I'll start doing that soon after the game comes out.

As for the album, it'll be out any day now. Tunecore, the site I use to host the songs, say that it'll take 4-6 weeks from when I submitted it. We're on the fourth week now. So when I say any day now, I literally mean that.

Also to recap our future projects;

The J in JT - a short film about a typical day in matchmaking between skullkruncher13 and patfan8326

The Greatest Ever Promotional Video - I posted a preview that you may have seen earlier. It's just a simple promo with some jokes thrown in for you all to enjoy. That release of that video will mark when the album is out.

Fallout 3 Rap
Modern Warfare 2 Rap
Left 4 Dead 2 Rap

....and I'm talking to skullkruncher about making a ODST Rap

That's all for now

Update 9/10/09 New series idea!


I'd like to start off by saying that I'm going to postpone production of 2 Da Haterz. This is because I just have no heart in doing this video at the moment. I was thinking of having it be fan made and have a contest. The best would be featured on Machinima's YouTube, but that's only a vague idea. Perhaps one day soon.

You guys may have heard of a little game called Halo ODST and of the new game mode Firefight. Well my idea is: I play that with friends, fans, whoever and then when it's over I'll go into theater. I'll record it with cool angles and make it into a nice cinematic experience. Not the most original idea, but it should be cool nonetheless.

Also the album should be released soon, expect an update any moment now.

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.
