If you have ever sat around thinking, “Man, I wish I could watch the short educational segments from Marty Mitchell without scrubbing through the whole movie,” you are in luck! All three bits are now viewable on Vimeo separate from the movie. Yeehaw!

Will you be in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, April 6th? If so, you should stop by the Citrus Cel Animation Festival and watch Marty on the big screen. It is one of the selections in the “Vitamin C” block at noon. Unfortunately I cannot attend, but I hope lots of folks will be introduced to the world of “Many Maladies.”

Also, you can watch Marty online in yet another place: Newgrounds. Feel free to check it out, rate it and review it.


Also on YouTube

Marty and his family prepare to see the final movie for the first time

After three years of teasing and promising, I was finally able to show people “The Many Maladies of Marty Mitchell.” It premiered last night at the Goethe Institute in Los Angeles at a special Butcher Bird Studios Screening. Hopefully I’ll be showing it to more and more people in the very near future. Thank you to everyone who came out last night and anyone who has supported this project at any point in the process.

Revamp and Poster

Many Maladies Site Design

I uploaded a more respectable version of the homepage today and a look at the poster.  I’ll likely tweak a few things on the poster soon, but this is what you get for now. Good news: The video is finished—for the most part. Ben and I will meet next week to do a final sound review and probably make a few adjustments. I have already started submitting to a few festivals. The IMDB page is up and I am trying to organize a friends and family screening. I do not know when the movie will go live on the internet just yet. That will depend on festival restrictions, but I’ll post it as soon as I know I can.

Marty Anniversary

from storyboard to video shoot to final composite

Yesterday (Feb. 7th, 2012) was the three year anniversary of that fateful day we shot the greenscreen elements in my living room for The Many Maladies of Marty Mitchell. Time really does motor by. It brings me great joy to say the show is mostly done. Ben is currently working on the music. It took me three years to finish all of the visuals so I can’t reasonably expect him to hustle through the audio in record time. He never disappoints so I’m expecting something great as soon as is feasible. In the meantime, I’ve posted an image above showing how a frame of the show progressed from a storyboard to a final image. Enjoy.

Light Teaser Drops

That’s right, malady lovers, the new “Light Teaser” is online for your enjoyment. Besides completing this new teaser today, I also finished rendering the last frame of the show. What does that mean? Visuals are done. Ben is chopping away at the audio and when he is done, The Many Maladies of Marty Mitchell: Of Maggots and Meat will be complete. We. Are. Almost. Done!

The Dark Teaser

December 13th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

All initial animation and compositing is complete. Audio Master Ben Chan is now working on the audio and music. The next thing I need to do is review the footage and make all the necessary adjustments and tweaks to the visuals. We are getting very close to completion. We are currently on schedule for mid to late January. In the meantime, you can watch a new teaser video called “The Dark Teaser.” How sinister! Expect a “Light Teaser” in the near future.

So, get to watching it and send it to everyone you have ever met. Seriously! Stop reading this! Watch the video! Why are you still reading this?!!
