Happy Monday! Here are some more teaser screenshots from my upcoming movie, Mighty Morphin' Midget Gnomes UNITE!:

We have over 60 submissions to our machinima contest! Judging will sure take a long time, but I can't wait. There is still plenty of time though, so if you would like to submit something, you have until the end of the month.

Jeff and I have been trying to update the WeGame blog regularly, which you can check out here:

That's about it for this week! As always, you can keep tabs on my day-to-day movie progress via my Twitter page, chat with me on the forums and browse all my movies on WeGame. Here is last week's video review:

This just in! Our good Nathan Allen Pinard has released a digital download collection on Amazon consisting of 80 minutes of machinima movie scores, including scores from a number of my movies, which you can get for just under $8. Check it out here at Amazon.com:

I'm hoping to gather together all my little songs from my movies and do something similar here in the next few weeks. So stay tuned! There may be an Oxhorn Brand CD coming out sometime.

Maybe.

I have some teaser screenshots for you! I can't share them without revealing the name of my movie, so I'll just announce now that I'm making a new movie called "Mighty Morphin' Midget Gnomes UNITE!". I have scene 02 done and 03 half done, which leaves scenes 04, 05, 01 and the credits. I won't have it done in time for next week, but maybe, just maybe, the week after. But don't hold me to it:

Our good Lagspike has released a new short movie. It is a Team Fortress 2 spoof of a scene from the latest Batman movie. Check it out here:

Our machinima contest is going great! We already have over 40 submissions, which means that every single prize will have a winner. We've recieved many quality submissions, but the winners are far from established. With 13 days left to go in the contest, the prizes are still up for grabs! So, if you have the machinimator itch, sit on down and crank out your dream movie.

Happy Monday! I've got lots for you today. First, my friend Joyce recently got back from volunteering at an orphanage on the Thailand/Burma border. She is trying to raise some money to help the orphanage, and she set up a website where friends can make donations.

If you are interested in helping out, you can donate from the orphanage's website, here:

You can follow Joyce's doings on her blog, here:

As promised, here is a short video of highlights from the WeGame party. You get to see me do the ogre dance!

Jeff and I got to spend some time at EA's headquarters in Redwood City last week, where they showed off their new game, Dead Space. We were very impressed with the game, and we came back with some great exclusive footage. I've completed a few of the videos, and I'll add the rest to this list when I finish them:

If you like the gameplay footage, please "digg" it for me here:

It has been just under two weeks since I announced WeGame's new machinima contest with $5,000 in prizes, and we already have 25 submissions! If you want to participate, you still have until the end of the month to make a movie and submit it. Be sure to read the rules before doing so:

Last week I released my new movie, We Eat Flesh, and our good Lagspike relesed his new movie, Temp Fortress 2, so be sure to check them out if you missed them.

My birthday was last week, and Adreena surprised me with a birthday video! She managed to get many people from the forums and friends who help me with my movies to make appearances, and I've got to admit, I'm touched! You can check out her birthday video here:

Hooray for fan art! Over the many weeks since we started the video review, I have recieved a lot of fan art from users. I figured I might as well show it off a little, so here is a list:

We've decided to update the WeGame blog on a more regular basis. You can check out the WeGame blog here:

We decided to try out a new format for the video review. Let us know if you like it! We actually ran out of time during the recording, which is why there are two minor edits during our gameplay discussion.

And that about does it for this week! I'm working on a new movie and I should have teaser screenshots for you next week. Though I'm not sure how many I will be able to show, because if I show the characters it will give it away... but we shall see. Anyhow, enjoy the week, and see you next Monday!

What a weekend! The WeGame party was fantastic. Thanks to everyone who showed up! I'll be releasing a short video of party highlights, hopefully today sometime.

I'll be releasing my finished movie Wednesday, not today, because of timing issues. StephenM a.k.a. Lagspike will be releasing his new movie tomorrow, so we'll be sure to give you guys some cool new movies to watch.

It has been less then a week since WeGame's new machinima contest began, and we have already recieved nine submissions. Everyone has been really excited about the contest, and that makes me glad! You all still have nearly a month to make a movie and submit it, and you can submit as many as you'd like. Be sure to read all the rules here on the contest Group at WeGame:

As always, you can see my moment-by-moment progress on my new movies by following me on Twitter. Here is last week's video review from the party:
