I may have misunderstood exactly WHY Yeller was executed…
(Also, did he misspell his own name?)
A few years ago, I helped make a feature film called The Selling. It's a horror-comedy about a haunted house, except instead of being scary for a family like in Poltergeist, it's inconvenient for a real estate agent.
It's probably the best feature film I've worked on so far.
Now Gabe & Etta are gearing up to make another movie, and they're raising internet money to do it. I want them to succeed, so I helped make some of their campaign videos. I'm part of the bloodthirsty mob. Go Bloodthirsty Mob!
These guys are also the most expert folks I know on crowdfunding, with a few successful projects to their names already. Etta has written some interesting things about how the landscape has suddenly shifted when it comes to using social media to get your indie film off the ground.
They have some distance yet to go in order to finance their film this week. Check out DDMTA.com to watch their dozens of short videos, check out the impressive sci-fi cast they've assembled, and of course, pre-order the new film. (And buy a copy of the last one, and all their other crazy rewards, some robotic in nature.)
So here's something I made for Cracked.com.
It was written and narrated by someone called Cody Johnston, and he or another fine employee at Cracked added all that driving, important-sounding music. Oh, and the goofball title.
My pal Lewis Sequeira did some of the artwork, and I'm responsible for implementing pretty much everything else (more images, making it all sort of jump around on the screen, various whooshing sounds.)
If you like space-related information accompanied by drawings that move around in video presentations, you might also like The Transit, which I made last year with Lewis and some of my other friends.
I've noticed recently that when I send myself an email note, it shows up as a sent message but never hits my inbox. So I need to remember I was reminding myself of something. Not very bueno.
Here's the fix: Create a filter for messages from yourself and tell it that messages that match this search should never be sent to spam.
Messages to yourself weren't actually turning up in the spam folder, but the two seem to be related in some way.
Now then, if I could just figure out how to teach it that I never want to reply to myself in a conversation thread. I thought sure it used to be good at that.
Turns out, this was also capturing mail I sent to anyone and dropping it in my inbox. You might have better luck putting your own address into both the from and to fields, or if you're working from a catchall address, '*@example.com'
