Mr Bungle Animatic: None Of Them Knew They Were Robots

Here is a crude animatic I made back in school about an idea I had for an animated Mr Bungle Video. I always had characters in my head during the crazy vocal parts, so I decided to give it a go. It features some of my horrible drawings scanned into an animation lunchbox for the basic moves and transferred onto Mini DV. Then the tape was captured into Final cut pro, cut out and the rest was animated in After Effects.

It’s Official: I’m Obsessed with Pinball

I tend to obsess over things. Like REALLY obsess. I tend to build my life and ways I make money around my obsessions. Every few years another thing comes up that interests me and I have to learn as much about it as I can. Magic Tricks, Yo-Yo’s, Pro Tools, After Effects, Photography, Cinema 4D, Designing iPhone Apps, all came out of following random obsessions. Well, I think I found a new one.

About about two months ago, wile I was waiting for my laundry to dry in a San Francisco Laundromat, I put a few quarters into a Terminator 2 Pinball and ended up playing a couple hours until I beat the high score. That’s all it took. I am now obsessed in learning everything I can about pinball and becoming a better player. I learned about who designed pinball games, who makes them, how they are distributed, how they are cleaned, fixed, and transported. I’m also committing to play and practice at least 4 hours a week to learn how to become a better player.

Fleeting obsessions come and go for me, but it looks like this one is here to stay for a while. I’m even looking into purchasing one for home or for an office space and learning how to fix them myself. Mostly, I’m excited I finally have a hobby that doesn’t involve staring into a computer monitor all day.
