  1. That was freakin' awesome!! We have some problems with the AM Films submission mechanism, so I have to put them up myself right now. I'll try to get this up soon. Did you have some video reference for the dancing? It really looks great. And thanks for submitting to AM Films!

    Stephen, we're all blown away here at Hash. You've topped yourself again, by a factor or 10 at least! I've booked a flight to London so that I may shake you by the hand sir! I was going to go to work the booth at MacExpo, but after seeing the new animation, that's just secondary to meeting you again. :-) We would very much like to show this in our booth at our upcoming trade shows. We will make sure everyone knows you are the talent behind this. A:M was the conduit. You know, I'm going to stop typing and watch it again!
  3. Great work Chris! Thanks to you, I have something I can brag about when I go to my fencing club. I haven't been faring so well in the local competitions, so thank goodness I can whip the latest issue of American Fencer, and show off the great Leon Paul ads. I also would have sworn that mask was a photo. Amazing work!
  4. Are all of the films on this site made with A:M? If so, can we put them up on A:M Films and link to your site? Great work!!
  5. Can you convert these to Sorenson 3 Quicktime? Divx has cross platform issues. Thanks!
  6. Great job guys!! We'd love to see you post some of your amazing work up on A:M Films. I know that some of your clients won't let you, but we should put the rest up. We've been getting a LOT more activity on A:M Films lately, and every film you post will have a link back to your site. Last week we got 43,000 unique hits in a single day!! As more blogs link to us, we're going to see more days like that. It would give you guys a lot more exposure. You guys totally rock! -Ken Baer. Hash, Inc.
  7. Please, please, please submit a QuickTime version to A:M Films!! We are all big fans of your work here at Hash! Keep it up, and submit them!
  8. Very nice!! Can't wait to see more of this! The swashbuckler appeals to the fencer in me.
  9. You should submit this film to A:M Films.
  10. These are really great. You should consider posting them to A:M Films. I really like the flower one.
  11. Just send me the description and I'll post it for you. But, the submission page for A:M Films will be up soon, it's pretty close.
  12. You can't browse the mirror, but if you find something in the pub/movie you want to watch, you can use that name on the mirror.
  13. Here's the link to the Captain Quazar Quicktime. http://www.s1.hashmirror.com/ftp/pub/movie...ptainQuazar.mov The game came out about 7 years ago, so it's long gone. And since this thread was originally about "Balls and Blocks", here's the link to that film. http://www.s1.hashmirror.com/ftp/pub/movie...lsAndBlocks.mov I know some of you found movies on our FTP site, but it would help us out a lot if you go to the mirror site to get them. ftp/pub/movies is mirrored at www.s1.hashmirror.com/ftp/pub/movies. The mirror is much faster and won't bog down our server. So, if you email movie links, PLEASE USE THE MIRROR site.
  14. Great film! I hope every SW fan gets to see it. The gang at Hash really enjoyed it. Many people have the dream of "making their own Star Wars" film on their kitchen table. You have actually done it. We salute you! Keep up the good work!
  15. It was done by Bob Terrell and Vince Backeberg. They were both with Will Vinton Studios, and then started their own company called Computoons (which did the Captain Quazar animations). I don't know what they are up to now. They also did some short films for Hash, including Truckin', Voyager, and Nightwalk.
  16. Welcome to the New Users forum! The idea behind this forum is to provide help and support for users who are new to Animation:Master and are going through the Art of Animation:Master tutorials. We encourage you to post your Works-In-Progress (WIP) from these tutorials to this forum. You will learn a lot from the feedback you get. Rodney Baker has gallantly volunteered to be the moderator for this forum and will be here to answer basic A:M questions. We encourage everyone to pitch in and give encouragment to new users. It's always exciting to see artists emerge from being a beginner, to next hotshot animator. And don't forget, we have the New Users Page at http://www.hash.com/support/newusers.asp New users may post to any of the forums, but this is the place to ask basic questions. Everyone here started out as a beginner, so don't be shy. You will soon see how amazing the A:M community is. Let's all help new users feel welcome, and excited that they made the right decision in buying Animation:Master.
  17. Does he say, "See you in cyberspace, man!"? No, this was about 4 or 5 years before that, in 1988. We have animation that dates back to 1987. It's really amazing when you compare it to what other CG was being done on personal computers at that time. Back then, seeing CG in commercials was still pretty rare. Reagan was still president! :-) Man, we've been doing this a long time. I'm really looking forward to digging this stuff up.
  18. I've kind of been the official company archivist (I guess my History minor in college gave me the bug to keep track of history). I have a lot of stuff on video that I want to migrate over to Quicktime and get online. Last night I was looking at an old Apprentice tutorial tape with Martin in his 20's! You'll be seeing this stuff in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!
  19. It was called "Balls and Blocks" and I am in the process of resurrecting it along with many other great animations from "the old days". It was done by Allen Coulter around 1993-94 probably with A:M version 2. It's on a couple CG video compilations. I saw it in a tape called "Animations for Kids" or something like that when I was at the last SIGGRAPH. It was playing on a tv in one of the book sales areas. It made me pretty happy to see something done a decade ago with A:M getting shown so prominently at SIGGRAPH. It made me reflect a little on how long we've been doing this.
  20. I am planning to resurrect many of these classic animation gems in the coming weeks. We're in the process of revamping our animation area of our web site, and I'll be very interested in getting new and old animations that we might not have seen before.
  21. That's great stuff!! The swf file was a little blurry, I'd love to see it as a higher quality QuickTime. As we revamp the Hash galleries, I want to make sure we get some of the older animations too. A lot of people assume that all of the best animation was done in the last year or so. There are films and commercials done with A:M, that are great and are were done a decade or more ago. Now that more people have broadband, it's easier to show them. It's also a treat for us who haven't seen them before.

    Blistering Barnicles! That's really nice. Did you leave enough room in the cargo area for the Captain's scotch?
