Hey, have y'all ever made home movies that weren't so much about yourself, but little mini-series or shows?

I thought I'd share a little word about some old home movie shows I used to make.

*

1) Justice Offbeats: In March of 1999, when designing a stairway model for an algebra school project, I decided to use the stairway as a set for an improvized little show. It was all unscripted and I took these game pieces from a game called "Mutant Chronicles: The Siege of the Citadel" and re-named a handful, including four heroes (Yocemento, Phat Fatty, Adrenaline Man, The Forgotten Soldier) and one supervillian (Immoral Man). Immoral Man is trying to seize the stairway as a strategic empire annexation, and he has his armies and a few henchmen made from styrofoam blocks (Styrofoam Sam, Styrofoam Cedrick) helping try and rid of the heroes. And, yes, the cliche that justice prevails in the end lives in the story!

The idea just kind of caught on, and I made an action-comedy series along the likes of Get Smart meets Austin Powers. I made nine more episodes from 1999-2002, until my old camcorder broke down, where I did a wide range of voice personalities and had guest voice actors on all episodes:

**********************

Episode 2: Craytown Shuffle: Immoral Man, agonizing from defeat, tries to take over Cray Town (which was my sister's science project where crayfish crawl through this maze) and drafts an acrobatic soldier named Mandrill to trap the Offbeats.

Episode 3: The Robust World: Immoral Man hires an Aussie bark with bite, Logan Log (a log I spray-painted eyes, mouth and put a camouflage hat on) to defeat the Offbeats. He knocks them into the backyard, where they are lost, and try to find their way back home, with Logan Log on the hunt.

Episode 4: Frigid Fred: A cryogenically-frozen Irish gnome, who lives in a frozen glass dome, tries to freeze the world, but the Justice Offbeats are after him. Things get a little chilly!

Episode 5: All-Or-Nothing Hallows Eve: Immoral Man's father, Malevolent Marvin, disgusted by Immoral Man's losing record, takes command this episode on halloween, summoning Neclord and a gang of Halloween monsters to defeat the Justice Offbeats.

Episode 6: The Lilan Toys: Immoral Man and his advisor Kumo Lissente (a former emperor impeached for war crimes) cheat an elite group of warriors into a phony peace negotiation. The Lilan Toys battle the Justice Offbeats, nearly defeating them, until they learn of the frauds and join the Justice Offbeats.

Episode 7: Mystery Wrapped In The What Now?: A random, unpredictable magician, Mystery Wrapped In An Enigma Wrapped In A Vest, proves to be a great challenge for the Justice Offbeats.

Episode 8: Freeloader: A quirky average Joe fights the Justice Offbeats with pockets full of surprises at the Convention Center.

Episode 9: The Marmot Menace: A tall, powerful Indian, bitten by a squirrel and mutated into a beast, tries to capture the mayor, Philippe McPherson, whom he had befriended and accuses of betraying him in leaving him to die (Philippe is afraid of squirrels). (Based on my friend Philippe Ernewein's real-life experiences)

Episode 10: Marshal Murlorko Returns: A quirky, smartalic soldier defeated in the Lilan Toys episode mutates and returns to seek revenge on the Justice Offbeats.

(smiles) I also used to make a cute family series that teaches good morals in life called "The Fattissues" (little kids made of clay with yarn hair and glittery make-up)



I also made a show called "Peace Girl" in where I had a cute little neighbor girl be a superhero with a peace-sign cape on, in where she solves problems in the neighborhood like a bully stealing a kids lunch money by making peace arrangements, yay!



Love,
Noah Eaton

(giggles) Many labors of love seem to randomly come out of free time!

Who knew? (giggles)

Eye of Observer. *chuckle*  Sure, it was time entensive for you, but freetime to me.  As an aside thought, ever thought of contacting Cartoon Network: Adult Swim with your ideas?

(giggles) You know, it's funny you mention Adult Swim, because I actually enjoy watching it quite a bit.

Brak's Dad would have to be my single favorite character on there (the tiny man with the Cuban accent, who looks like he's straight out of a 50's rarity).

I always love those random things he says:



The Wise? Words of Brak's Dad

"Life is not about the second chances. It is about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is."

"Mother, people only invite you to dinner for three reasons: to sell you vitamins, to drug you and take unpleasant snapshots, or to convert you to their hideous farming religion."

Partly in humor, yes.  The rest in seriousness.  Give em a shot...nothing ventured (Go Team Venture!), nothing gained.
