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:

THE LOVE STORY – OFFICIAL TRAILER !HQ!

ALSO!!!!

I am going back to school now, I make a bunch of stuff there, including the first ever Blight the Clown video game. It is still a beta version, I am going to be adding levels and more sound effects and al kinds of other fun stuff. Click here for the process site, or click here to play the game!

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,

June 29, 2009

Greetings and salutations,

This post marks the final episode in this chapter of Blights “Missing Adventures”, I will be posting other comic strips, its just that Blight the Clown will be taking a break from the internet to work on his book. Also, check out the trailers for my friends movie, “Lencho”, he has been kicking ass on it for several months now and it should prove to be pretty fantastic. He is having a bit of a fundraiser for the movie in a few days so he can try and pay some of his crew. Details are posted in the blog.

The film El Regreso de Lencho (in English it’s The Return of Lencho). It was shot on 16mm film on location in Guatemala in late 2008 (there is also an animated part to the film). It is currently in post production. It’s a Spanish language film about a character named Lencho who uses street art to organize Guatemalan youth–now targeted by the police as insurgents–to express their social justice and human rights concerns in an increasingly corrupt and violent Guatemala. It promotes graffiti art and human rights in a globalized third world.

:::THOUGHTS ON THE WEEK:::

There must be something in the air, the past few weeks have been filled with celebrity death. First David Carradine and his fantastically shocking yet sudden death, then Ed Mcmahon, I guess we saw this one coming, he was old and sick, but sad none-the-less. Then Farrah Fawcett, again sad, but a very public documentary about her cancer prepaired us for it. Then Michael Jackson, I guess this is the one that got to me the most, very tragic and unexpected, just on the verge of a comeback tour, trying to get back on his feet after a very public stoning by a hypocritical society. In his case, I wonder what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. No matter if you love or hate the guy, he had a huge impact on most anybody that grew up in the 80’s. He took music videos to a level that blew peoples minds, I can remember watching the video of the making of Thriller, it was my first glips behind the scenes into the world of filmmaking. Then he bridged the gap between video games and music with an amazing title for the Sega Genesis called Moonwalker, a game where you defeated the bad-guys by dancing! I even remember how the world came to a stop and everyone turned their televisions on at the same time to watch the premiere of his video for “Black & White”.  Michael Jackson even introduced me to one of my all time favorite artists, when Weird Al did the song “Eat It”, that changed my life forever. So it is with a sad heart that I mourn the death of a brilliant artist. Then all-of-the-sudden, I find out that the infomercial guy Billy Mays died this morning. Now, even though it is always sad when someone dies, before last week, I don’t think his death would of personally effected me in anyway, BUT I saw him on Conan O’brien, and for the first time enjoyed his non-salesman personality, he actually made a really funny segment with Conan, and I thought I might even try watching his new television series “Pitchmen”, but I guess it was not meant to be. Such an odd week. Below is a youtube video response to Michael Jackson’s death that seems appropriate to describe the hypocrisy of the public.

Michael Jackson is Dead

JANE ROSE STEALS BLIGHTS NOSE!!! A NEW COMIC STRIP!

June 14, 2009

Holy flim flam bang bang pops on a stick,

It sure has been a while since I posted the last Blight comic strip. This will be the second to last Missing Adventures strip I post before I begin work on the “MIS-ADVENTURES OF BLIGHT THE CLOWN.” The new Blight story will not be posted online as I will be saving that particular story for the book I am working on. After I post the 30th comic strip next week, I will begin posting strips from a new story I am working on called, “PROFESSOR VON GOITER – The Worlds Most Miserable Private Dick.”  In the meantime, I will also be posting little video clips to my Youtube channel as often as possible, so be sure to subscribe to that: http://www.youtube.com/blightproductions

CLOWNLAND – A CLOWN-NOIR COMIC STRIP, Another LIFE STORY, and a whole bunch of T.O.T.S. live show dates!

December 8, 2008

Well, howdy doo folks,

It’s been a while since the last posting. I have been hard at work drawing my fingers to the bone and redesigning parts of the Blight Productions website. In this super sassy posting, I am premiering a new clown-noir comic strip called, “CLOWNLAND“. It’s about a bunch of characters that exist in a world where everyone is a clown, and not everything is funny. I have also posted another one of my “LIFE STORIES” a webcomic that is some how in some way loosely based on events that occur in my life. I am also posting the next few show dates for my band, “THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN.” So be sure to read this blog all the way to the end, then forward the link to all your friends, and maybe even a few of you enemy’s.

:::NEWS:::

In addition to drawing my fingers to the bone over the last few weeks, I have been updating the website like crazy and learning a few new little web tools. I updated the webcomics section of my site, so that it is a bit more organized and easier to navigate. And I redesigned the front page to the website to integrate a new tool that I discovered called “Friend Feed”, it is a pretty badass little widget that allows you to redirect all of your web activities, like blog posting, twittering, facebook, myspace, digg, youtube and a whole bunch more into one feed embedded onto your site, so that there is an always updated and active amount of interesting content on you website. Check the tool out here: http://friendfeed.com/. I have also been experimenting with a cool little tool called, “MINGGL”, this is a cool little toolbar plugin for your web browser, that allows you to manage all of you social networks at the same time.  Keep an eye on all the active status messages and twitters in one feed, as well as the ability to post your own status message to twitter, facebook, and myspace at the same time. It is a pretty amazing time saver. Check it out here: http://www.minggl.com/ . I have also posted my Holiday classic movie, “A CLOWN CAROL – The Marley Murder Mystery” on the website “Funny or Die” please check it out and vote my movie FUNNY to keep it active, also repost it to your facebook and myspace, share it with your friends and tell them to vote it FUNNY.  Click here to watch and vote: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/15148744a7/a-clown-carol-the-marley-murder-mystery-from-blightproductions
