send me video

Hey all.

I occasionally make short films and play around with whatever toys are available to me. I’m no Orson Welles but I like to keep myself occupied. Recently I had the brilliant idea to enlist willing parties into my attempt to stave off boredom. I figure I have this network of people I’m connected with socially, a social network, if you will. I put the call out on Facebox and Twizzler and I received some cool entries. As I write this I’ve only had a dozen or so entries though and I need a lot more in order to fill the time I want to fill. It takes a lot of footage just to edit into a short thing to throw up on scrootoob. I figure most of us are carrying around cameras all day. It probably won’t be too much of a hassle to shoot something and send it to me, right? Sorry if that’s presumptuous but who knows, maybe it’ll be fun.

This is just for fun. Just an experiment, like every other damned thing I do. I have no idea what the finished product will look like and that’s why I’m excited about it. I imagine it’ll just be a short experimental mishmash but we’ll see, I guess.

Here are the rules

1. The video has to be shot by you or you have to appear in it. You have to own the rights, dig?

B. You have to be cool with whatever I decide to do with it.

That’s it. I mean, I might have some problems with certain file formats or something but I can’t imagine what those problems might be so whatever, do your worst. If I can’t figure out how to convert a file, I won’t use the god damned thing. Easy peezy.

send whatever video you have to Elijahbrubaker@gmail.com

around 30 seconds is great. it keeps the file size low but allows me enough room to edit. I imagine most of the people submitting to this will be people I know but just in case, make sure to include your name if you want to be included in the credits.

Thanks everyone. You’re the greatest people in the world and I love you.

E-dog.

Dead Presidents (1995)

Best superhero movie ever made.

webcomics

Hey dude.

You may have noticed I started putting up panels from my Hubert comic. If you’re one of the few people that have really followed what I’ve been doing comics-wise, you may notice this as a reworking of a thing I started a million years ago. I think this story is better than the one I was serializing in old issues of my minicomic, Blue Moon but it remains to be seen if anyone will enjoy it. I’ll be throwing panels up on a semi-regular basis. I’m planning on twice a week.

If you just can’t get enough of my comics, please feel free to move on over to Studygroup and take a gander at my comic Jezebel. It’s a humor comic about the old testament. Woo!

A short experimental, blatantly student-filmy thing. If you don’t like it, you can fuck yourself in the face. Watch it full screen. turn up the volume. get stoned, maybe that’ll help.

This has popped up a couple of times on my tumblr feed but so far no one has given credit to awesome cartoonist Paul Kirchner who did these Dope Rider strips in the 70’s and 80’s.

Teaching elementary school.

They’re funny, clever and incredibly observant — both of what it means to be a kid and how they see the world, but how we, as adults interact with them.”

Mr. Wolf’s 2nd year teaching. Please help support my life as a cartoonist and teacher.

Price: $5.00

Pages: 44

teen wolf

teenwolftoowebteenwolfwebLately I’ve been in the habit of drawing Teen Wolf in the margin of my comics and drawings. He’s my biggest fan and he’s always telling me I’m on the right track and doing the right thing. I hope you all have your own teen wolf somewhere, keeping your spirits up.

 

comic01webquite often, pages like this just come out. sometimes they can get rolling pretty easy and jump start some kind of story. Usually I just file them away and hope they do me some good somewhere down the line.

This page was just a little exercise while I was winding down and getting ready to go to sleep last night. I really like the way this page came out. I mean, the lettering is gross and the panel borders are a little too sloppy but I wish I could keep my drawings this loose and fun.

So I figured I’d draw a little comic about my trip to Autoptic in Minneapolis. I’m going to use it to play around with some colors and stuff so it might look weird and take the better part of a week to get it all up here. I’ll post a link to the whole thing together once it’s done. Enjoy.
