Dance Dance Revolution: The Warrior’s Path

The Next Films. Is casting time? Maybe it is.

Legal Paws (Short):

It’s high stakes litigation… with furries. Thus the name. Get it. It’s a pun. This script has been sitting for a good year, I think it’s time for it to get up and running.

Unfinished Business:

This one used to be called “Everything Else: The Warrior’s Path” which actually does have some footage. None of which is going to carry over into this next film. Nor is the similar structure of the last two movies in the series (thank God.) We’ll be able to start sort of fresh and deliver some content that isn’t QUITE over everyone’s head like we did last time. No drugs will be required to have a good time here. I’m going for a different tone. And Rock Band will be involved. So it’s going to be fun.

The Creative Process:

What do you do when you’re creatively bankrupt and need money? You make porn. But not just any porn. You want to redefine what porn can be. Much to the disdain of everyone around you.

I have some other scripts I’m working on too. But we’ll get to those when we come to them. Until then, stay tuned. And of course we’ll film some other things in between, but that’s just what we have now.

Hopefully I can cast this stuff soon. Hit me up with an e-mail or a tweet if you want to act in something

Maybe, but I’m not through yet.

Zero’s eternal words from Mega Man X one. It’s really no diffrent than how the movie is going right now. Rest assured I’m going to have a lot of nice stories posted here once we wrap production.

But let’s get to the meat of things shall we?

We’ll be screening at GenCon Indy on August 17th, check it.

Is that not sexy? We got a primetime spot too. 9:30pm to be exact. It’s gonna be tits.

But we still have some ways to go. But I’m going to end this update by posting a buttload of stills. Yay stills.

Remember, we gots a facebook page and stuff to harass us at and yeah. See you in a couple of months.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, let’s explain these two movies.

Greetings true believers. I’m just gonna get right into it. The whole “Serious Business Saga” (DDR and Pump it Up: TWP) actually make a lot of sense believe it or else.

In case you haven’t already figured it out. It’s a huge allegory for…

AN INTERNET FORUM.

 

We have Derek, he’s like the new user on the block. Doesn’t quite have an avatar yet. Doesn’t know how to handle things correctly. Get’s mixed up with Team Z, our film equivalent of trolls.

What then ensues is what happens on any internet forum… pettiness, trolling, and a heapload of fucking butthurt. It’s really quite crazy at times. But like what any troll, they can be taken down with a little help… and practice. In all my days on internet forums, I have never seen a troll get taken down alone. That theme is there with Wolfen and company banding together to take down this threat. That’s why I sometimes call it “Internet: The Movie”.

Now we move to the sequel, that we’re doing now. It takes place about a short while later.

We continue with our analogy at this point. We have Yvette, who’s seen the glories of dancing games and wants a piece for herself. Much like those asking to be a mod on a forum… even though everyone hates them. We have Aaron, who’s the elite of elites… the guy who really runs things who finally sees what the hell is going on and tries to fix it. In this case, it’s literally sending people out to murder those who would otherwise mess things up.

We have John’s Mom, Evelyn who basically the same as Aaron, but handles things a little more directly.

Maya then becomes the moderator. The one who is in charge of keeping the peace at all costs. In this case, it involves even more killing.

Then we have Lily, Ryzen’s mom. You know that guy that always butts in where they’re truly not welcome or needed? That’s Lily.

All and all, the double feature is just the internet converted for your movie viewing pleasure

That’s all the detail I care to go into right now, I’ll have more clips and stuff over the next few weeks as we finish up.

 

 

Beasting

One thing I really wanted to do with the movie this time around is have some more intense dance game scenes. I know some of my actors aren’t players at all and a few have never actually seen the game played well.

Leroy and I intend to be in that tip top shape when it comes time for arrow stomp sequences. I don’t have Pump in The Lab, but I sure as hell got stepmania and a Blueshark pad. So… we spent the night just beasting out some songs and just trying to get some sort of arrow based stamina and know-how back.

Took a while to finally break the pad in, and I need to get a chair that isn’t low as fuck -________-

Nonetheless, we had a great time, and there will be more beasting to come, that’s for damn sure.

Sore as fuck right now, about to go back to more beasting in the morning. Good idea or best idea?

Aaron in Japan: My Inspiration

I started playing DDR back in 2002. DDR 4th Mix+ at Wright’s Barnyard in Lansing, IL (RIP). Who can forget classics like “Cat’s Eye” or “Wonda”?

Anyway, AIJ is 13 years old now. AIJ, or Aaron in Japan for those not in the know, is a site mostly where music game players come and post about topics of their intrest. Which is pretty much just dance games and Loli. I started posting there at around the time my friend Brandon (Dyme) started to post. He said that’s where all the good players were.

He was right. I guess I popped in at around the golden age when we could find good DDR machines all over the place. Everyone was playing. People were leveling up. We could really just hang and have a good time. Not to mention, I have friends for life in Lefty, Darkmage, and even that fag GTC. Not to mention SonGohanX and NicX who I should be seeing soon.

You could say that AIJ really changed my entire life. It really did.

The Bemanifest trip was the first real road trip I ever took without my family around. We drove 20 hours straight. GTC, Lefty, Darkmage and I… and we even picked up a Canadian along the way at a McDonalds at 2AM. Shit was crazy. But I learned a lot about myself and came back a person who stood a little bit taller. This led to a lot of fallout… but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Without AIJ, I must likely wouldn’t have even gone and who knows how life would be now.

I also got a front row seat to the decline of the modern gamer. Back in my day, when we didn’t have the internet (gasp) we had to go over to friends houses on Saturdays to play games. We learned a lot about sportmanship, and really just life itself. All by just playing games with other people. There was compitition, but it rarely ever got unhealthy.

This is not the case I saw on AIJ.

Since it’s the internet, people are going to act rudely, a lot. The amount of competition and hypothetical dickswinging I can really just blame on the lack of actual social interaction. You couldn’t do this shit at the arcade back in my day. You’d get your ass kicked. But it’s just the world we live in now.

In case you all didn’t realize… this is where Dance Dance Revolution: The Warrior’s Path comes into play.

Darkmage mentioned it first. It’s “Internet: The Movie”. You have the users (Derek, Wolfen, Yvette) then you have trolls (SupTrashcan, Ryzen, Terminator). The trolls want nothing more than to put the users out of existence. Everything is taken seriously when it really shouldn’t… and people get butthurt over the smallest thing.

Then in Pump it Up: The Warrior’s path. Without spoiling much, we bring in the moderator. Who deals with the trolls in her own way. You’ll understand when you see it.

Back to AIJ, I really don’t post on there anymore because I like my IQ at 145 where it is. However, I can’t hate on it’s existence. He’s brought together a lot of good people and really helped make my life the way it is, for better or worse. I have to thank him so much for that.

Here’s to another year of not so great people on an otherwise very nice site.

Dancing games are serious business… in Australia

DDR: The Warrior’s Path had some international assistance. DJ Cyo dropping a couple of tracks from the wonderful fairytale-land of Mexico.

Well, with Pump it Up: The Warrior’s Path. He’ll be back with a more complete score. Isn’t that lovely?

But more importantly… I mentioned in an earlier post that we’ll be having some special segments in and around both films.

Here’s the kicker… some will be written and directed by me of course.

Others? Well they’ll be helmed by a crack team of writers and directors, doing their thing.

 

Allow me to be proud to welcome the Aussie filmmaker Nate Smith follow his bitch ass on Twitter.

Okay, so he’s not a bitch-ass. That would make him too much like that Chris Langer guy I dislike so much. But whatever. He’s going to make his country proud… or get thrown out of it for assisting a crazy black man at poisoning America’s youth. Expect some Western Australian charm.

I never knew there were actually human beings in Western Australia… The more you know.

I’ll be announcing more special guests as I get them. This movie’s going to be epic. Just you wait and see. I feel that this is going to be a big week.

Sequel time. And the “Serious Business” saga

Nuke-Con is over and it’s time to chalk up another con been to and screened at. Let’s all have a moment of silence for all of the uncool people that haven’t seen DDR: The Warrior’s Path yet.

Okay, but now it’s time to continue moving forward. We may be hitting another con or two before things really start to get real. I’ve been checking out audience feedback. Just seeing what works and what doesn’t. It’s pretty fun that way.

 

A Hint of Cherry is the next film, but with that just awaiting funding… we need to keep busy.

That’s why it’s time to start talking about Pump it Up: The Warrior’s Path.

 

This will be the conclusion to the “Serious Business Saga”.

Most of the original cast will be back… but mostly in cameos and what not. I like to keep the blood fresh on these projects.

I’m in the process of writing the script now as I confirm who will actually be returning… besides myself.

What I can say right now is we’ll be seeing the deaths of a few returning characters… in a bloody fashion I might add. And we’ll see Yvette reach her true potential.

Casting has begun once more.

After this film is done. We will hit the festival on con circuit much harder than we have. The first and second films will be combined into a double feature. Complete with all kinds of fun things in between the movies. Crazy shit’s gonna go down I can assure you.
