The title says it all, but let me give it to you in detail.
See, I have been practicing my stop motion recently which you guys can check out on my YouTube Channel.
now that I re-learned my craft, I am now facing the challenge of making a "actual" stop motion short.
Really, the only thing stopping me from going for it, is the lack of money I have to really give you guys "quality".
I know this might sound like an excuse. . . .and it is, but I want to be able to give my all on this project.
I don't want to just animate "toys" or make make a stop motion about something I am a fan of or even something everyone knows.
I want to be as original as possible, really make a world and story I know people will enjoy watching.
Here is a little summary of the story I made and really want to bring to life.
It's called "Paid to Kill: Jason "Butcher" Chigue".
It's about a professional killer, hired to kill a cyborg mercenary. And that is basically it, the rest of the video is just showcasing action and the magic of pratical stop motion effects.
I already completed the script, and the scenes all on paper. This is my most ambitiouse indi project I have ever went for in the past 3 years. I wont ask for money from the people who are supporting me, and I will not think ill of anyone who does not want to.
I just wish I could actually do it already, but at the moment I really can't.
So for the time being until I can actually make the stop motion shortfilm I aim to bring to life, I will be practicing with animated shorts and uploading them on YouTube. On the side I will be working at a pizza place to raise money to support my goal.
Thats all for now guys, thanks for being patient with me on this.
I wont let myself and the people who support me down.

Yup, you guys are reading that title right, I can finally make stop motion videos again.
Keep this in mind though, I have not animated a single stop motion for the past 3 months.
So the upcoming stop motion videos will be practice just to get back into it again.
Other than that, EXPECT STOP MOTION VIDEOS VERY SOON!

My family got kicked out of the house we where renting.
Moved into crappy apartment complex in Tempe next to a college.
I am now sharing a room with my older brother.
Bottom line, I can hardly make my stop motion animations now.
Atleast that was my mind set till I just said, fuck it! I'll find a way.
You are now up to speed.

I have come back from my self loathing and fear of the real world! Ok that's kind of a lie, still scared shitless of the real world. Regardless, I have come back to make something of my NewGrounds account. I am making stop motion videos again. FOR REAL 100%, if I ever go back on it, you have my permish to beat me on it.
So yeah, I'm making stop motion animations again, but I want to go balls to wall on this project. I want to go all out. So, I will be uploading my progress here and on other websites.

Fearful of the Future
So my Dad confronted me about growing up and doing something with my life. He said how much I am basically "sponging" off my parents ever since I stopped working, and he's right. Thing is, I really fucking hate people, having a job requires you to deal with bull shit from your employees and customers. My last job, I threatened to beat the shit out of an employee and so I was fired. I really don't want to go back to work, but at some point I fear that I have to. I want to make my YouTube Channel a business so I don't have to go back to what I hate.
My channel has a good subscriber count, but now I just need a good majority to actually give a shit to donate to me. And before you say "it does not happen in week dude", Shut the fuck up I know that. If you have run a channel as long as I have, you would know that, I already know that and know a lot more than you think. Sadly my demographic is all fucking millennials, teenagers who just see as "a video" and "nothing I would donate to." I have to make this work, other wise, it's back to the work life for me. Me risking getting angry again, to the point where I will hurt someone and end up in jail for it.
I really don't want to go back to a 5-9 hour job, I don't have the tolerance for it anymore. Not a day goes by where I wish I could hurt or maim the people that piss me off. Not a single second of my life goes by, where I am afraid, that some day my parents are going to die and I am left with nothing. Not a second in my life passes, where I hope to god that my channel does become a business. At this point however, I have to assume the rest, I have to do something, or I will end up homeless somewhere. Now, I feel like my YouTube Channel is not worth it anymore, BUT I REALLY FUCKING WANT IT TO BE!
I want my channel to be my source of income, so I can do what I love. But it will be for not, if no one gives a shit about it.

Sorry for the drama filled titel, just want to let some stuff out of my chest. I mean not that many people are going to see this so YOLO.
So I have been struggling emotionally to make a stop motion short for awhile now. I don't see any value in doing it anymore. I feel like no one is going to care or even see my stuff. And before anyone tells me "dude you just uploaded it, don't expect to get a bunch of views in a day", shut up, I know that.
It's just frustrating because my first YouTube Channel was suppose to be ALL STOP MOTION. Instead it drifted off to comic dubs, and literally no one cared about my stop motion videos ever since. I worked hard in my past videos, and to see no one saw or cared to look at them, really kills the drive to make more.
I thought that NewGrounds would change my perspective, but no, it's just the same as YouTube. I almost feel silly for becoming a supporter, but whatever it went to a cause at least.
So at this point, I am debating what to do with this account now. Hopfully something turns out, but till then, this page is going to be dead as dirt for awhile. I hate the fact that I lost the drive, I bought so much stuff for the stop motion videos, and now they are collecting dust. It's like the heart in it has died and I;m just watching it weather away.
Thanks if you read this far, and maybe if I get that drive again, I'll make some videos, hopefully if that drive ever comes.

I have come back! Long story short, I have been working on another comic dub series on my more successful channel, so I have not been active here for a long while. Coming back though has inspired me to do stop motion shorts, now that I got the time again.
The comic dub series I am currently working on is thankfully a mini series. After that I think I will be taking a break so I can focuse more on my stop motion.
Speaking of my stop motions, I feel like I should lay this down right now. See, I orginally planned on making grand 3-4 minute stop motions with fancy backgrounds and shit. But then I had to wake up and face the noise. "My budget is down to jack shit." And so I will be making bland background, 20-45 second, stop motion shorts of random ideas that come out of my brown egg shaped head.
Yes this does sound cheap and boring, but cut me a break, props in general is a hassle to afford now.
I will deliver on exactly what is said here, and no worries, these shorts will not be half assed. Putting effort will have a good turn out, and will show.

what is up guys, I'm back again with another post. I'll be focusing more on making short stop motion videos, in order to make upload time go faster.
Currently working on 2 scripts, thinking about writing a few more, then I will be animating the short scripts.
Hope to bring yall some more, stop motion content soon.
