Three Month Min. Break

Hey guys,

Bad news in Fantomville. I got Rock Band 2, and the second I put it in, my 360 breaks! Something inside of it cracked somehow, and I took the Rock Band disc out, and there was a circular scratch on it. I put in some blank discs and the reaction was the same. So now I have to send my 360 in, and see if Microsoft will also replace my Rock Band disc. And for those of you who had received red rings or other maladies, you'll know how hard it is to get Microsoft to be honest with you.

Feel Free to Contact Me

Hey guys,

Since I haven't really been doing that much lately, I haven't really needed to make any new blog posts. But, since I realize some of you like to read these posts, I've decided to make posts about nothing. Then I realized what a stupid idea that was, and rejected it. So, I decided to make posts almost about nothing, but with something slipped in.

In this one, it's my request for people to send me feedback. I want to hear from you guys! Do you want a preview of a script? Do you want to know more about a certain project? Do you have any ideas for new projects? I don't know, because nobody really talks to me.

So send me an e-mail, whether you're asking me to show a preview of a script, showing me a good idea, or even just saying "hi", that'd be great. The only reason I'm asking this is because I don't have a large amount of fans, so I wouldn't have to deal with a large burden of mails.

Oh, and Happy Holidays!

Poll Title Now Readable

Hey, guys.

I realized that when I made the main blog title readable, it accidentally made the poll title unreadable. So, clearly, I fixed both of them, so you can now read the blog title and the question of the poll. Which, incidentally is "What Machinima Project are you Looking Foward to More?" I'm not going to lie to you guys, I enjoy writing for Deceit the most. I gotta say though, that John Blaze, Accounting (or as the poll reads "Master Chief, Accouting) is the easiest one to make, just because it is so simplistic. It has no real words in it, just yelling and it has minimal characters.

Hey, guys.

I actually got the counter! I had been trying to get one on the blogger gadget site, but the only ones that they had either didn't work or weren't hit counters. It was mainly population counters. So I went to another site, Easy Hit Counters. I highly suggest them. They had tons of options, and I was able to find the counter section, find the counter I wanted, get the counter, and paste it into my blog in about 20 seconds. It would probably take you a shorter amount of time, I just had no idea where to paste the counter info things.

Blog Title Fixed

Hey guys. Well, for those of you who look at this blog, you'll notice that I've fixed the blog title color. It had been originally white, thes same color as the picture's backround, so you couldn't see the title. It had merely blended in. But now, I changed the title color to...maroon...or crimson...or whatever color it is.

That's all

Hey, guys.

Well, in case you're all wondering I haven't posted anything in a while, it's because I had forgotten my password for my blog spot.

Well, in other news, I've completed the scripts for episodes 1 and 2 for the series "Deceit". I've also completed the scene locations for episode 1.

Sorry this is such a short post, but I've been busy lately and I haven't gotten the chance to work on my machinima projects. Also, I've been working on the script for "John Blaze, Accounting"


Sunday, October 5, 2008


Hey everybody, you'll all be thrilled to know that "Deceit" will be delayed another month or so. Yeah, I know what you're all thinking, "It was nice of you to let DigitalPh33r enjoy his time as number one, because soon, TheFantomLegend will be number one!" Or "Wow...this affects my life so much...damn it..."

Whatever. Anyway, I showed my script to the script writer of Ice Age 1 and Ice Age 3 (It's coming out soon) and he destroyed it. Well, not literally, but he really did pick it apart. Oh, yeah, you're probably wondering why I think you would believe this **** that's coming out of mouth right now, and I think you'll believe it because it's true. My mother apparently was good friends with him in high school and has kept in slight contact. Cool, huh?

So anyway, he knew what Halo was (apparently he had a lot of free time during Ice Age 2, eh?), and he understood the whole script. He basically just showed me some of the amateur mistakes I made and gave me some pretty cool tips.

So I deconstructed the whole two scripts and worked my way back down laying a better foundation, working over the basic script I had written, putting speech first, then motions, then voice expressions (since it's a Halo machinima, I don't have to work on a lot of motions or bodily expressions), and then just fancying it all up.

I also worked in several little side stories that I can always rely on in case I run out ideas and have to appeal to the public quickly by bringing in an old mystery that they never did figure out and making it seem so cool at the same time. I feel just like J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter author for the five people in the world who don't know that, damn, those recent movies sucked)

Anyway...that's more or less it for now. Oh, and the Mythic Map Pack doesn't come out a month from now anymore, try like 4 months. February 2009. It'll have 6 maps and I'll bet all of them will be like sets I've already made and the second I upload the episodes to YouTube...BAM! There will be something exactly like it, except 10 times better.

Hey, I am now one week away from my deadline to finish the script for episode one. I promised my actors I would have the basic script two months ago, and I had handed it in 1 month late. I just keep getting delayed. Anyway, the basic script is finished, with all the scenes properly placed for the maps now, and almost all our scene maps are completed. I just have to edit some extra things, because I had made a small scene bordering around the equipment "cloaking", and I, being a re-re, didn't remember that, that equipment was available exclusively on campaign. So had to rewrite that entire scene, which, admittedley, I think turned out better than the other variant. Anyway, that's it, and I found out what I'm going to use for a radio, I'm going to have to use a small generator.

Name Change and Title Problem

Hey, about 10 seconds after I uploaded the poll, I changed the machinima, "Master Chief, Accounting" to "John Blaze, Accounting". So, yes, I do realize that it says Master chief here, and John Blaze on my YouTube account. You don't need to message me about it. Thanks though. And if you want to read the title, you have to highlight it, because I can't change the font color. All it says is: TheFantomLegend. But, since the backround of the picture is white, as well as the unchangeable font color, it will be unreadable (unless you highlight it) until I photoshop my name into the picture and merge it.

First Post

Hey, I've finally set this site/blog/thing up! It only took...27 tries to correctly write those little letter things. You know those things where it has a word in a weird font and you have to write the word down so it proves you're making the account. Well, I suck at those, it took at least 27 tries, my history bar was filled with those pages. Anyway, I made this thing so I can keep my fans updated. Yes, so now Bill AND Ted will never be kept out of the loop. So, now, back to business. For my series "Deceit" (that's its name until I come up with a better name), the script for episode one is more or less done. I just have to make small adjustments for language realisticisy, and I realized you can't make computers OR radios on "The Pit" so I'm trying to put on a radio telecast on (and no, I can't use those giant TV's in the room with the sword, it's already in use), so viewers can see where the voice is coming from, but I can't find anywhere near where the main character will be to do it. Hey, I know, maybe one of you guys have an idea. Say you are facing one of those giant TV screens in that sword room. Back out and go to the left, the LEFT. Then go to that second story area where snipers looooove to be spawned. On the unenclosed area, where could he be watching/listening to a news show and on what?
