Science Fiction is the Purest Form of Art

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Ryan Nellis @ 11:19 pm

Moot is introducing a new sci-fi world. Possibly a strange and scary place, possibly a fascinating look at humanity and all our differences, possibly a bit of satire directed at preconceptions of sci-fi worlds from the past. The question remains whether something new will translate into something desired. That is up to you. No matter what, as the creators of Moot, we will see our vision come to reality. We are grateful for the tremendous support thus far. Testimonials and pledges are driving confidence to reach our goal.

The MOOT MONSTER is an interplanetary guard dog protecting earth by catching evil alien spacecraft and munching them to bits. The animated birth of the MOOT MONSTER can be seen at the Moot Movie Kickstarter page. Don’t miss it.

Into reality the MOOT MONSTER has come, as a Custom USB flash drive, an animated video series, comic book, and limited edition 3D print. Please welcome our supernatural mascot, he only wants to keep you safe, especially with the impending date of 12-21-2012, our Kickstarter end date and possible alien invasion.

Mootified

Today and everyday the creative process is challenging. Whether it is to manifest an idea, a story, a character, or a visual effect, all steps have their rewards in the sometimes painful process of creating an art form that must aspire to entertain, provoke, and move our emotions.

Moot Movie has been edited. Many pieces of a scripted sculpture have come together in near perfect performance. Yet looking forward, many human hours are left to build the remaining visual effects, sound effects, mixing, and music score.

The journey continues. Please stay tuned and feel the love… or reap the scorn of a dragon girl.

Mooting My Way Through Life

As of late I’ve been putting together a crowd funding campaign with either Indie Go Go or Kickstarter to raise finishing funds for the Moot Movie. After observing many other campaigns I thought it might be a good idea to add a mooter monster toy to the rewards for donors. What manifested in my mind was a modified Moot logo turned into a sharp toothed, wide grinning typographical monster.

Over the last couple of days I’ve been stop motion animating a hunk of sculpey clay. Carving up the fleshy mooter and constantly reshaping it has tried by patience, but I’ve never feigned from time consuming detailed work. Working with clay is challenging, especially when your design consists of flat edges and straight lines. I been squishing, pulling, dragging, twisting, flipping this little demon all across a green field to be keyed out – environment in the making. Like any newborn, character development comes over time and in this dude’s case, many havoc reeking life experiences.

Back to the crowd funding… it’s standard to create a personal video pitching your project to potential donors. Cindera, Dyllen and I are going to wing it. Hopefully something magical will happen, even get lucky catching something on video that is not of our normal world. We’ll be watchin’ and huntin’.

Dyllen has been helping out on Moot Movie, taught her how to take out the green using Ultimatte Software in AE CS4, this amazing stand alone plug in is EOL (end of life), can’t afford to recode for 64 bit. And so time continues to press forward one pixel at a time.

Pictures of Time

To slow the unstoppable bullet, a life of time ticking away.

hang on good child, it's going to be a fast ride

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. ”
