Moot Movie – Main Title Sequence

In taking many steps toward the completion of the Moot Movie, the opening title sequence needed to be created for an introduction to our supernatural underworld that is infiltrating the media landscape of Los Angeles.

Immediate goals with the film – still mostly in green – are to fill in a few more gaps so that it is watchable for a select group of folks to critique and give notes toward solidifying any necessary pick-up shots and editorial modifications.

Finishing this pass of the main title may have taken a few months, but was well worth it. Building that crazy Hollywood skyline not only required finding the right perch for my camera – thanks to Edge Performing Arts – but it also needed huge hours of digital imaging and then animation. The entire piece was animated in Adobe After Effects.

Always great to cross these mini thresholds in completing the various sections of the film.

Time to place the new title sequence into the cut and push forward.

Moot had it’s origins back in 1997.

It started with my creation of Trevor the Tabloid Paparazzo, a photo based web comic. Trevor was a cool character, totally of the time, when the internet was relatively new and the connection was super slow. His gal, an adult star, played by my wife Cindera Che. As time moved forward my feelings for the type of characters changed. While Trevor became Mattox, Cindera made it clear that she would no longer play a porn star. So China-Rain became the powerful witch Deva.


Here are a few of Mitch Watson’s words for Trevor: “Every job is different, so you’ve got to be prepared. I’ve been tracking Biddle for over a year. No margin for error. One thing you should know about me is that I’m not one of those pussies like Avedon who skulks around county fairs snapping shots of worn out milkmaids and shit-kickers who look like they’ve been the victim of one to many cattle mutations. I work in the city, and what I shoot is unrehearsed and ugly. Like I mentioned before, part of my job is lying for a living. I lie to get my information. I lie to get my shot. And if lying don’t work, lookin’ at this bed will tell you there’s always other options. Bottom line; get the story, anyway you can. ”

Dreams and Memories

How to depict a dreamy memory of a horrific event. In the Moot Movie, Mattox as a child looses an important family member in a tragic accident… or was it a murder. I’m now cutting this sequence, finding the right tone and pacing. I liked the spirit world depicted in The Last Air Bender. Right now I’m just in FCP which is so limited, where is parenting Apple developers? Once I get into After Effects, then I can wield great artistic styling and effects.

Brain Static

If you’ve ever had media overload, you’ve gotta check out Brain Static. It is an experimental film I created 10 years ago using movies shot on 16mm back at UCLA in the late 80’s. I recently found the AE file and upped the resolution to HD for all the Moot fans to enjoy.

Are You A Mooter? The edgy Mooting Head Video Contest has launched.

Got all the info up to start the mooting head video contest. Finished my own example on the Moot Contest page.
The video is an animated self portrait of my unique artistic styles and personalities.
When I launched Moot on social media, I noticed people’s trend of changing their profile pictures to express different personalities or assume alternate identities. This is what inspired me to create my mooting head video and it’s accompanying CONTEST. There are currently a number of entrants creating their own animated mooting heads to see if it is possible to manifest a new meme – a MOOT MEME. If you love creating your own edgy videos and animation, join us in this new digital adventure.

Animated Mooter Portrait

I shot a series of stop motion stills and video to create what I’m calling a Mooter Self Portrait. My head is going to repeatedly spin into new characters that are always mooting- the graphic word moot and its variations coming from my mouth. The heads vary in emotion and visual style. I hope to interest others in creating their own mooter portraits, the notion of a mooting avatar, eventually perpetuating into a moot meme. Much work ahead, been messing with this thing off and on for the past 4 months. Even recorded VO of a bunch of people mooting for others to use in the Moot contest. Stay tuned for a wild ride with your Captain Mooter.
