Epic Gunshot Win: Ridiculous Assassination

Description: A short action scene originally made for the Sprint Epic Movie commercial contest 2010 (and rejected for unspecified reasons). This over-the-top kill is a walk in the park for this unquestionably precise, clever and creative mafia hitman known only as Rend. After cleaning his Colt .45 1911 he delivers death, not from above, but from the depths below.

Gear: Canon 5D2, SV Tungsten light, small 3200k ikea lamps for highlights. LED flashlights for lense flares and accents. Sound recorded with a Sennheiser me66 shotgun mic and Zoom H4n combo. Lens was an Iscorama 36 anamorphic + a cheap Digital Concepts diopter 4-piece set from ebay.

Toy Chest Episode 4: Metal Gear Solid vs Power Rangers: Dinozord’s Demise

Red Ranger in Dragon Shield

Creative Info: To further development on the series, I began taking the series out of the “fake commercial” box I set initially and turned it into episodic content. For that, I thought it only natural to bring in other big names to the series. I felt the most opposite crossover for them was Snake from MGS. His tactical stealthiness would clash quite nicely compared to the loud, flashy combat of the Rangers. Plus, him seeing the ridiculous zord transformations for the first time would be fucking hilarious. I also had the chance to discover the talent of SpeedRacerFiber who is another YouTuber and voice actor that happens to have one of the most hilarious Snake impressions ever.

MGS vs MMPR

Braggarts Corner: I posted on GameTrailers as well and it was an instant smash with the community, going so far as to be chosen as Featured Movie of the Week.

Toy Chest Episode 3: Power Rangers Ultrazord Banned Toy Commercial

Power Rangers Toy Theater

Creative Info: The third episode of our Power Rangers toy spoofs. This is where I start to cross over into gaming territory. Imagine the Green Ranger as a spoiled WoW jerk who hates being told he’s wrong, trying to operate his zord with PC video game controls while having the Red ranger school him like a little bitch over Vent or Teamspeak.

Technical Info: I shot this while experimenting with my vintage Iscorama 36 anamorphic lens, which is what causes the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, organic lens flares and unique oval bokeh.

Toy Chest Episode 2: Power Rangers Dragonzord Banned Toy Commercial

Power Rangers Toy Theater

Creative Info: The second episode of our Power Rangers toy spoofs. Imagine the Green Ranger as a sailor mouthed jerky asshole who hates being told he’s wrong. The Dragonzord toy was always special to my heart. You know it’s almost everyone’s favorite zord and it’s no wonder this ended up being the most popular video in the series. It’s on its way to 1 million views with its current rate of acceleration and you’re all helping to get it there. Nothing says “we want more power rangers” than increasing the view count to this instant classic video. What do you think?

Toy Chest Episode 1: Power Rangers Megazord Banned Toy Commercial

Power Rangers Toy Theater

Creative Info: The first episode of our Power Rangers toy spoofs. If the Power Rangers were a bunch of spoiled idiot trolls in real life this might be what it would be like. Making fun of them and celebrating them at the same time. I just remember racing to Wal-Mart to be the first to grab these zord toys off the shelves before they were snatched up by the other kids because they’d only get 3 in at a time.
