    • Friday (Saturday) Update! Dead by Slender

      1 week ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      So let's get back in the groove of posting weekly updates again, shall we. Started playing Heroes of the Storm, mostly to get the Overwatch skins, except now I'm just playing heroes and not Overwatch. That'll probably change once the anniversary event starts. Also, Lawbreakers is not a good game, imo.

      Also, hey, new killer showed up in Dead by Daylight, so us at The Lone Few did a let's play in it.



      We also went back in time and tried out a game mode in Gmod called Stop It Slender.



      Look out for more stuff in the coming weeks!

      We did this last year and had a great turn out, and since then there's been a ton of new creators joining that channel, and many of us have been collaborating and helping each other out all year, all without ever meeting each other.

      So this year at RTX, let's do it all again. I'm going to be speaking with the place to try and reserve some big seating area (we kinda just took over a whole floor last year) so we can all meet up, grab pizza, and actually talk to each other face to face instead of over discord/skype/etc.

      Everyone is welcome to come by!

      Friday July 7th at 7pm on 6th Street
      Ropollo's Pizza
      316 E 6th St, Austin, TX

      Can't wait to see you guys there!

      So a lot of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting videos on my channel recently. Well, there's a reason for that. I've been brought over to help make content on the channel for The Lone Few. You may know them from their awesome GTA machinimations and Straight Outta RT from a while back. You may also know them from being in pretty much all my multicam videos for the past few months. With them already showing up in all my content, we figured why not move stuff over to their channel. 11,000 subscibers compared to my 188.

      So does this mean I'm abandoning my channel? In a way, kinda? The vast majority of my stuff will now be over on The Lone Few, but if there's ever something that may not fit their formats, I may still decide to do it and put it on my channel, but still.

      So yeah, go on over to the Lone Few's channel and hit that subscribe button!

      Now let's play catch up on videos since I haven't posted here in a hot minute.







      I even did some voice work for one of our GTA machinimations:


    • Featured User! Let me introduce myself

      1 month ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Oh hey, featured user! Thanks! I should probably introduce myself. My name is Phoenix, I've been a part of the AH Community/Let's Play Community making videos and appearing in videos since November 2015. I also create stuff on my own YouTube channel where I make let's plays of my own. In my past, I used to direct short films and webseries of my own creation, of which I will occasionally share stories about here. I try to post once a week with all the content I've been in. I live in Austin, so if there's any Austin community members, remember that the RT Austin group has weekly meetups at Torchy's where I try to always show up to. (You may even be able to see me in the background of some early Million Dollars But episodes)

      I think this may be my first time as featured user. This profile was started in 2010, but I have another profile that I had long forgotten the password of that I made in 2005, you can even mind it online with all my shitty, horrible, high school annoyances on (amon_knives). I was what the kids now call and edgelord. So yeah, it's awesome to get featured user!

      So, sharing a few highlights of what I do, check them out. And even though the channel is on hiatus, go subscribe to the Let's Play Community and help us raise community interest in bringing the channel back!





    • From the Dust

      This was a fun project I worked on quite a few years ago. Still one of my favorites too, since these shoots were as bare bones as you can get. 

      I didn't write this webseries, that was my good friend, Kenneth Trombley, who had this as his baby. He co-directed and produced this, while I acted as director/cinematographer/editor. In the second arc, we even had Skyler McIntosh, an amazing actress who has gone on to be a voice actress with Funimation, recently voicing the lead role in Izetta The Last Witch.

      Most of the time, the only crew we had were the actors, myself, kenneth, and a sound person. Some days we may have had more, but for the most part, we were filming extremely simply.

      RdkKlKs.jpg

      We never finished season 1, in fact, we filmed the first 3 episodes, then a year and a half later filmed the next three episodes, and that's all there is. We intended to have two more three part arcs. The next one was going to see them find an underground bunker and find an insane guy killing off survivors. I was gonna go for a very "Alien" type vibe. Then the finale arc was gonna have a character very similar to King Ezekiel from Walking Dead, and then tease some things for a season 2, including answering some questions about Shepard's wife, whose memory has been haunting Shepard throughout all the episodes.

      So yeah, this is likely all there will be of From the Dust, so enjoy:




    • On the Sale of Swords

      1 month ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      I posted one of my previous short films here awhile ago, and thought I'd share another one.

      A lot of people don't know I used to do a lot of work making my own short films and webseries stuff. I since stopped, mostly because of a lack of funds. I just don't have to money to pay people, and I'm not in college any more, so I'm definitely not gonna be that guy who has people work for him for "exposure".

      I previously told the story of my short film "Witchbane: Hunters", which I still hope to make into a feature film one day, or at least a graphic novel. You can see that here: 
      http://roosterteeth.com/post/51264142

      This time, I want to tell you about my medieval piece, "On the Sale of Swords".

      VlpLrRX.jpg

      The story is about an arrogant bard who gets arrested and is being taken as a prisoner to a noble he's insulted. He's being taken there by one of the noble's knights, a cruel man, and a hired sellsword, who only has gold on his mind.

      We filmed in a paintball park in Flower Mound, TX, in a dried up creek bed. We used stunt swords and actual knight gear. The actors who played the Knight and the Sellsword were a teacher and student of an actual medieval sword fighting school for Fiori de Liberi, and actual medieval sword technique, and they used a lot of those moves in the choreography. They choreographed the fight really well, and I wish i was a better filmmaker to capture it properly.

      So enjoy On the Sale of Swords.




      Next time I'll show you guys a webseries that I never finished with a friend of mine, "From the Dust".

    • Weekly Update! Salt and Hitmen

      1 month ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Got a few videos this week, and I'm not exactly in all of them, but they are connected.

      First up, on my channel, we wrapped up Golf with Friends in the most insane way we could think of. Random shapes, low gravity, and bouncy floors. We all slowly lost our sanity.

      Then I did a collaboration with my friends @KyleDoesGTA and @aclarkislost of the Lone Few. Kyle challenged me and Austin who have never played Hitman to see who could be the better hit man. We both did really poorly, and it's hilarious. So check out the video on my channel, then check out Austin's run on The Lone Few's channel:




      Now, this next video, I'm not in, but i wanted people to go watch it. This is the first of a short video series game show that @ghostsol created for the Let's Play Community that unfortunately didn't get off the ground. Wish there could be more episodes.


      COMMUNITY!

      I haven't been in anything co-commentary-wise, but i show up playing the games in the background of a few. You should go watch everything on there, anyways, just as a general rule. :P


    • Weekly Update! Sharks and Lone Few!

      2 months ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Ok, so yeah, I've been slacking on my videos. Either way, new video this week. Deptch! Where we kill each other as sharks.... I'm noticing a trend in my videos recently...


      Then over on The Lone Few's channel, I was a guest in their classic game mode Hole in the Plane in GTA.


      COMMUNITY!

      I'm not in the video, but I wanted to share the final Plot Twist episode. @iSayWhat has been an awesome community manager and I'm sad to see him go, but glad that he's working at his dream job. 

    • A Witcher deserves his rest.

      2 months ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Almost 2 years ago, I bought Witcher 3 on launch day. In fact, I bought it on my last day in Dallas, as I was heading to Austin for my internship. I knew it was a game I would like, because it had all the elements in a game that I usually like. What I didn't know was how much this game would mean to me.

      Since this game came out, there's been events in my life that have been a roller coaster of emotions. During that summer it was released, every day I would go back to my rented room and play more of it. Hours upon hours I poured into this game, and every time I thought I was close to the end, or had run out of things to see, it would give me more. This world was alive, and my work as a witcher was never done, and my daughter Ciri was counting on me. All the while it gave me many incredible characters with depth and personality, and I played it all as Geralt. Even the sidequests felt like they had the same weight behind them as any main story quest.

      I've played it on and off over the past 2 years, and I finally got around to finishing the final DLC, Blood and Wine. The Beast of Beauclair has been dealt with, and it's high time for Geralt to finally settle down and retire at a place to call his home. And my old friend Regis, a vampire, tells me words that are the perfect bookmark for the Witcher journey...

      "We have witnessed - and, in fact, on several occasions incited - many great and weighty events. After all that toil, I believe we deserve a bit of a rest."

      It's been an amazing journey. I'm going to miss you, Geralt.

    • Sunday(?) Update! .....Listen...

      2 months ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      So I was out of town last week filming some NCAA basketball tournament up in north Dallas, so I didn't have an update last week. Then this week I had my hands full catching up on work edits, so only had time to edit one video for my channel. So let's play catch up.

      Only video up on my channel this week is more Golf with your Friends with @DBenitez87, @KyleDoesGTA, @ShaneFromPR, @Traversian, and @maggosh. David doesn't like us just saying "Listen".

    Thanks for looking me up! Yeah, for some reason when you friend someone it doesn't also follow them, so you don't get notifications. Weird.
