BLIGHT ON THE RADIO, A NEW TRAILER, A BLIGHT VIDEO GAME, & OTHER SILLY SHIT

August 26, 2009

Howdy doo, my silly sacks of sensational Sasquatches!

I sure have been one whacked out busy beaver. I have been soooo darn busy I have sadly neglected my dear sweet little blog. Well time for the big fat update!

First things first, I am going to be a guest on a super cool live internet show called “ReW & WhO” I will be on at 5:30PM, Wednesday August the 26th, that is TONIGHT, so tune in to the website here: http://www.arizzmaradio.com/rewandwho/rewandwho.html. I am going to play some TOTS tracks, as well, as some video clips, and generally make a somewhat hopefully entertaining ass of myself for you good folks.

Second thing, I have finally finished THE LOVE STORY, my newest short film. I am going to be sending it to film festivals ASAP, but until then please enjoy the fancy new updated trailer I just cut for it:

School so far has also gotten me to make a bunch of other craziness, check it out:

2 BLIND MICE – A NEW GAME

This is a little commercial I made to promote a new game I helped create called “2 BLIND MICE”. For more information and the official rules, please visit: http://www.2-blind-mice.com

2 BLIND MICE (A working title)
A New Game By
Isadora Dantas, Ta-En Kuo, & Brian A. Bernhard

Objective:
Be the first team to collect the gold coin!
Summery:
Players will be divided into two teams. The teams will be divided into two parts, the “EYES”, and the “HANDS”. The “EYES” cannot move and the “HANDS” cannot see. There will be a series of colored coins placed within the game area. The “EYES” must direct the “HANDS” with a series of single word commands to collect all the appropriate colored coins to gain access to and collect the gold coin for the win.

DOWNLOAD THE OFFICIAL RULES FOR “2 BLIND MICE”!

PROFESSOR VON GOITER TEST ANIMATIC

So, I was asked to make an animatic for my class in Parsons. Professor Von Goiter is a little character I have been working on in a little comic strip, I have not yet released yet. He may yet see the light of day as an animated short.

The music is politely borrowed for this school assignment from the track, “Despair” composed by Ennio Morricone off the soundtrack for the movie, “The Thing”.

BLIGHT’S LIL’ FLIPBOOK

This here is just a little 50 frame animation I did for the MFA program at Parsons, that I am currently enrolled in.

Thanks for giving it a little look-see!

Thanks,

HERE IT COMES: THE LOVE STORY – a new clown movie, a new comic strip Introducing PROFESSOR VON GOITER, and some other news.

January 26, 2009

Howdy, my little frolicking fillies,

I have been churning out the madness here at the Blight Productions Big-Top. The ass is getting kicked on my latest clown movie “THE LOVE STORY”, and I made a poster to prove it! I have also been developing a new character to bring to life in the form of a sequential art series, “PROFESSOR VON GOITER – the worlds most miserable private dick. ” So take a look down at the rest of the blog and enjoy all the new shit!

-THE LOVE STORY-

“Gotta’ keep the park clean”

It’s coming, it will soon be here….

Another clown movie from Blight Productions:

THE LOVE STORY – “Gotta’ Keep The Park Clean”

This is the first sneak peak into the live action/animated/ moving picture world of CLOWNLAND. The movie features Jef Johnson (Slava’s Snowshow and Cirque du Soleil) as both the boy clown and a hot lady clown. I am working on the movie as fast as I can, but hopefully in the next few weeks, I can upload a trailer. The clowns were photographed by Chris Borgman and the composition, backgrounds and photoshopping was done by me.

—————————————————————————————————————————-

A NEW COMIC STRIP

INTRODUCING: PROFESSOR VON GOITER – The worlds most miserable private dick

Here are some drawings that I am working on to develop the story of this sad little man:

NEWS:

Just a few notes to end on, the TOTS show last week at Otto’s Shrunken Head was amazing, I thank you all for being there. Below is a little animated gif to show you how awesome it was! Also, don’t forget that the amazing live action play that I created videos for “THE SPIN CYCLE” is still running, I saw the whole thing all the way through last Thursday and it’s brilliant!!!! Check out http://www.inkythumbs.com for more details.

Oh WAIT, in other cool news, I finally got my last clown movie, “A CLOWN CAROL” listed on the IMDB, and suprisingly a complete stranger wrote a really kick ass review of it. Check out the page here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1347025/ or just read the excerpt below:

“Wow, was this a wonderful but frustrating film from Brian A. Bernhard. He came up with a marvelously absurd idea yet the film really isn’t finished–and there are no more clown movies!! The film is a very strange tale. It’s the old Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol” but with a twist. It’s performed by clowns AND it’s a murder mystery!! Seeing the clowns’ antics made me laugh and laugh (even more than when I watch chimps dressed as humans–but it’s all good) but the problems are that the film ended only part-way into the story!! It’s really NOT a complete short film but looks more like a promotional film made to secure financial backers. But, until the film is completed (and I assume they will), I am stuck waiting–and I liked it way too much to want to wait!!! Plus, at this point, it appears that this is the only clown film he made–and I honestly would LOVE to see more literary classics lampooned this way.

The film features an odd but very effective use of CGI with live action, great pantomime, screwy and hilarious dialog and lots of nice twists. And if you are reading this review, Mr. Bernhard, I want more. Not later–NOW!!! You have a lot of talent but I feel like a kid who got to peak at a huge pile of Christmas presents and then was told “you can just open them NEXT Christmas…or some time in the future”.”
