Hey Newgrounds, long time no see. You may remember me as that guy who originally arranged Theres Something About Halo and other short video game and film satire such as Van Helthing, back in 2004. Well Im back and roaring to go.
Where the hell have I been the past 2 years? Well after finishing studying for my Diploma of Animation here in Perth Australia, I got involved with an Australian TV gaming show called Good Game. They got me developing an animated segment called Gamer Tonight. Gamer Tonight is about the mis-adventures of Richard Farkas and his talk show, where he interviews a different genre of gamer each week. Each cartoon was developed within the period of 5 days, but Im rather happy with them provided the amount of time and pressure I was under to develop them. Ive been granted distributive rights to the cartoons, so you might see one or two of them appearing on Newgrounds within the next few months. Also the series has its own website launching soon at Gamertonight.com!
Ive also been studying to use other software packages such as Maya and After Effects, which Im really enjoying and hoping to integrate the skills into my Flash work.
Class assignment using Maya and Flash:
I was also recently involved this year with developing a short introduction to the ScrewAttack.com segment Games That Yanks Cant Wank. Nothing too amazing, just enjoyed being a part of something on their site.
Other then that, I have plans to get back into developing original animations for Newgrounds, as Ive honestly improved a lot since the motion tweening 17 year old kid from 2004. Though my primarily Newground based work I want to be unrelated to Video Game/Movie satire, as I have original concepts I want to develop.

I cant wait to show you guys some of my newer fully animated stuff. Plus Im planning to save/raise the money needed to go to the US for Comic-Con in 2008. So I might take a crack at some of the Newground competitions this year, we will see how that goes.
