    1:21 i know there’s a wig that comes with the exorcist mask I see right there and holyshit I can imagine so many things I could do with an exorcist mask and some special effect for vomit this place is great good video

      1:30 Idk what’s the story about the chicken coop by the way but if there’s a chicken coop you might concider including buckethead, good music a character no copyrights the guy probably loves nes games and he’s a actually a fanatic of horror movies and has shitload of songs based on the thing you should actually check him out. Buckethead cameo + Chicken coop = Epic Cameo for your movie, just an idea to concider

    please stay with animatronics and special effects… BOO to CGI! unless it’s a last resort… I always love animatronic effects!!

    • Nanofuture

      February 26, 2012 at 2:23 am

       @Cito He uses CG all the time in the Nerd videos.  It seems realistic to expect CG in the movie as well.

      • FibonacciZombi

        February 26, 2012 at 7:49 am

         @Nanofuture  @Cito Was thinking about that as well.  But it would be interesting if it was nerd like CG, but then have awesome animatronics.

      • yk1989

        February 27, 2012 at 11:53 am

         @Nanofuture yeah, but he normally used cg for those things that were too expensive to put in  regular FX  or where directly impossible  to put. I think is fine, because That’s how cgi must be used. Not like a toy to play with everything.

    • Fata Morgana

      February 26, 2012 at 2:38 am

       @Cito CGI isn’t inherently evil, you know.  It can be and has been used to great effect in many films.

    • FibonacciZombi

      February 26, 2012 at 7:48 am

       @Cito Animatronics bring in the realness factor, that it’s a physical entity that could possibly be doing all the mayhem it’s doing on screen.  if anything it can be possessed by a demon.

    • yk1989

      February 27, 2012 at 11:50 am

       @Cito I like CGI.. And I think it can be used moderately, But today producers like to use CG for everything. is like they use CG as enema.

    I’m guessing that whatever effects can be accomplished for less will be the ones you guys will go with. I’m not trying to imply you’re cheap, but you would want to stretch your budget as far as you possibly can. Practical over CG shouldn’t really enter into the equation. Thanks for the update, lads. Things seem to be progressing pretty much how one would expect. Might sound odd, but what was the movie (or whatever it was) paused on the TV screen? My curiosity is obscure, yes, but I must have it appeased.

    • Snejku

      February 26, 2012 at 8:56 am

       @kaneda_bjf That is “The Shining” by Stanley Kubrick, one of the best horror movies ever made.

    • Devil_Rising

      February 26, 2012 at 4:08 pm

       @kaneda_bjf also……why would they want massive, “Grade A” special effects when that doesn’t fit the AVGN style anyway?

      • kaneda_bjf

        February 27, 2012 at 6:48 am

         @Devil_Rising I don’t believe I mentioned “Grade A” at all. Computer effects are cheaper in a lot of cases than practical effects. When you’re doing a film on a budget – cost is the most important factor.

      • yk1989

        February 27, 2012 at 11:49 am

         @kaneda_bjf Well actually, TODAY CG is even more expensive than FX. unless you want  effects like those of the war of the worlds movie (not the spielberg one)

  • Doogrisa

    February 26, 2012 at 3:21 am

    Have animatronics as good as the ones in the movie “The Thing” (1982) Im a grown man and that movie still creeps me out!

    • Devil_Rising

      February 26, 2012 at 4:07 pm

       
      The effects in that film are 100% creepier and more “organic” than the over-used CGI in the “prequel” film. That wasn’t a BAD movie….but it lost everything in translation that made John Carpenter’s film what it was. I think people of the day forgot that the goriness of the effects wasn’t what that movie was all about, at it’s core. It was about the pervasive sense of creepiness and building dread that just permeated that film from the opening scene to the final credits.
       
      All the new movie could manage was some CGI gore, and a bunch of “GOTCHA” jump scare moments, which seems to be all any modern horror films ever really do anymore. It’s sad.

      • yk1989

        February 27, 2012 at 11:41 am

         @Devil_Rising Horror movies today are ,….
         
        “AAAAAAAH!” 
        *squish*
        3d gore
         
        *Loop*
         
        They don’t build characters (most of them just are there to be killed and have no personality)
         
        they don’t build a good story, just excuses.
         
        And the most important thing (because maybe history and characters can be not important… maybe… in a horror flick)
         
        Build a setting, make the people feel the suspence, the horror, not knowing what will happen next. Movies today just suck at that.  we know who will die, who is the hero, and that nobody but one but survive (probably a woman, the smart and lighthearted, because the other 2 are a frightful idiot and the other bad tempered  that nobody likes -she dies first and nobody knows that until 5 minutes later-) and the woman’s guy will die saving her. 
         
        they are THAT unoriginal.

       @CyrilWindlovver That would be overly intense.  Only if huh? 

    • Trojan_Reggae

      February 26, 2012 at 9:34 am

       @CyrilWindlovver Tom Savini has some of the best and most iconic horror film’s FX in his resume, that’s not James’ style. James has more of a B-movie feel (Ed Wood-ish), you know, not bad FX but the best one can do with the money and tools available. And it’s reassuring to see James go with a small, real ‘latex and makeup’ FX team and not CGI because that’s the image I have of him as a filmmaker and that’s what I want to see in his movie.

      • yk1989

        February 27, 2012 at 11:35 am

         @Trojan_Reggae I would like anyway that james find the true balance between cgi and Fx. But I think doing both would be too expensive… If i chose one, i’d take Fx. I love how james work with that

  • gamez

    February 26, 2012 at 8:47 am

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Tom Savini helps out. After all James did interview him, so it’s likely James made him into a contact.

  • DonSkiver

    February 26, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, visual effects can sometimes be WAAAAY cheaper than practical effects.  Case and point, imagine making a building explode.  It’s way cheaper to just animate it on a computer than it is to actually rig up a building to explode.  Or even to make a convincing miniature set and blow it up.  However, I find that practical effects are little more convincing than visual effects (within reason, crappy rubber masks you get at the dollar store aren’t very convincing) if only because it’s because there is actually something in front of the camera.  Your actors have something to work with, they don’t have to imagine this monster or alien, and they don’t have to talk to a masking tape X on the floor.  
     
    But making the argument that ALL visual effects sucks or ALL practical effects rules is stupid.  They both have their place, and they both are necessary.  It’s just that there are a lot of lazy lazy film makers that will rely on visual effects as a fucking crutch and its really EASY to do visual effects poorly and to give your movie a very “fake feel”.  
     
    That said, I know that James has enough knowledge and insight to use both practical and visual effects at the proper time and place and that the resulting product will be spectacular.  
     
    Keep up the great work, I love these behind the scenes videos and I can’t wait for the movie!

    • Devil_Rising

      February 26, 2012 at 4:02 pm

       @DonSkiver digital effects surely have their place. But I think there is something to be said for most major Hollywood films OVER-using it nowadays. You might even say they’re “spamming” CGI.
       
      There will always be things that CGI is “better at” or very useful for. But at the end of the day, I agree with the sentiment that “any time you CAN use traditional, ‘practical’ special effects, do so”. Because it just comes off as more “real” and organic. Besides, traditional “Creature shop” style special effects like seen in the video…that’s an art, a tradition that has been used since the earliest days of film, that’s over a century of “practical” effects work that has grown and evolved, and yet they still keep some of the old practices alive.
       
      That’s something I’d personally hate to see die out. In the same way that I’m glad there are still a handful of folks who keep stop-motion animation alive. There’s just a quality and “magic” to it that makes it unique compared to any other style of effect, and I hope the art that Ray Harryhousen kept alive and made so famous also keeps going.
       

      • yk1989

        February 27, 2012 at 11:32 am

         @Devil_Rising I agree… There are some things you will never do with special effects. But that don’t mean  you need Cgi for everything. And… this is just a personal opinion, but nowadays 3-D (stereoscopic) is just hiding the fact a movie sucks. And I started to think the over using of 3d effects did the same before the 3d cinemas were everywhere. Studios throw lights and noises … then the people exit the cinema don’t knowing how the F  was the movie but it was “awesome” (Avatar had this problem for me… a lot of 3d and one of the most unoriginal and predictable plots in years… if not boring , without the 3d glasses)

         @Devil_Rising lmfao healthiest people on earth? I’d like a source on that.. And I’d like a source where they surveyed vegetarians who DIDN’T take vitamin supplements.

      • Tanastari88

        February 26, 2012 at 4:41 pm

         @TomBacon Why can’t they take vitamin supplements? Beside they don’t really need vitamins as vitamins are mostly found in green vegetables. They might have some protein deficiency though, but there are ways to compensate if you do some research. Meat is usually not very healthy. Vegetarians have less heart diseases so they live longer on average. That’s why they are considered healthy. However it’s true that becoming a vegetarian without doing research before hand might not be quite as good.

      • JohnnyNightrain

        February 26, 2012 at 5:33 pm

         @TomBacon  Actually, societies and cultures that consume meat and dairy are the unhealthiest people on the planet. There is a huge misconception that humans evolved by hunting and eating animals. Some cultures (like ours; and look at us now) did, but there are plenty who didn’t.
         
        If you want a good source, and you have Netflix, check out Forks Over Knives. There have been decades of PH.D.-level studies on this, and not not just interviews with vegetarians who take vitamin supplements.

        Yeah, i agree. I’m also a vegeterian for over 2 years now, and im damn healthy – without any kinds of supplements. I even work out and do martial arts and have a nice trained body… also i never even bother to bug anyone who is eating meat, its their decision and im fine with it. I dont care at all if you do, its more the other way round: people never understand why i dont and allways try to convince me to eat meat… how stupid is that?
        So much about stereotypes and the Bull that goes with them. Have a nice day.

        March 4, 2012 at 9:52 am

         @Tanastari88  @TomBacon “Green vegetables”???? All vegetables are green, there are many parts to a plant and the vegetable is not the bark, its not the flower, or the fruit or the seed or the nut or the drupe or the legume or the roots. It is only the green leafs of a plant. A bean is not a vegetable, a potato is not a vegetable, rice is not a vegetable, mushrooms are not even plants they belong to their own kingdom separate from animals, bacteria and algae. Kelp and seaweed are not plants, they are algae. Broccoli is a flower, corn is a fruit as with tomatoes and cucumbers. I could do this all day, plants are kinda my thing. As for your vitamins. The reason vegetarians have to take supplements, and they really do have to (this isn’t made up), is because plants do not have a lot of vitamins. Meat has several B vitamins, zinc and iron not to mention amino acids that plants can’t make only animal’s can. Then there is phosphorus which is essential for producing energy in the muscles. You see, an animal will run around all day and eat different plants and accumulate vitamins in their bodies stored in their meat. Whatever organism eats that animal will absorb its nutrition (AHEM, you are what you eat).

Just a fun fact.. or theory.. I don’t know if it’s been proven..

      @BramBrouwers He looks pretty healthy to me. Don’t be an obnoxious dickhead. Some people are naturally thin, like myself.

      A healthy mix is probably the healthiest, but to imply vegetarians don’t get enough vitamins through veggies is laughably ignorant.

      • Cyberxion

        February 26, 2012 at 8:22 pm

         @AMillah  @BramBrouwers If it’s ignorance, then blame medical professionals for it. They recommend that both vegetarians and vegans alike take supplements to get the necessary vitamins and minerals that their diets are otherwise lacking. Hell, just Google the words vegan and vegetarian and you’ll notice that the first several pages of results are filled with links that discuss how important it is for anyone considering the diets to take vitamin supplements. So yeah, not so convinced that it’s ignorance, really. Now, what is ignorant is the idea that vegetarians and vegans are sickly squirts who could keel over dead at any moment.

      • JohnnyNightrain

        February 26, 2012 at 9:18 pm

         @Cyberxion  Lots of people take vitamins and supplements, though. They even have them in Flintstones form for children. There is absolutely nothing in meat that is not in any other foods. The ill-effects of meat far outweigh the protein… I mean most meat you buy at the store, literally, has feces in it. It also causes cancer. I don’t think too many people care what they are eating, though. If you buy pre-made bread and pastry from the store, you are eating human hair and wood. Anyway, I’ve been vegetarian/vegan for ten years and I’ve never taken any supplements. I’m in great health (I get a check-up every year). I play sports. I think most people who make the choice are fully aware of how to eat properly. I mean I imagine there are some kids being trendy or hip and trying it out, but they usually don’t stick with the diet. Again, I suggest checking out Forks Over Knives.

      • Cyberxion

        February 26, 2012 at 10:53 pm

         @JohnnyNightrain  B12, Johnny. That’s one thing that’s in meat that isn’t in vegetables. Ovo-Lacto vegetarians don’t need to take supplements to get it but vegans do, and it’s very important that they do.
        I apologize for not addressing the rest of your post. It’s just that besides pretty much preaching to the choir in regards to the dismal quality of store-bought food these days, I think you’ve totally misread me here. I never was out to argue that vegetarianism is wrong or that eating meat is right. I have no horse in that particular race one way or the other as I firmly believe in living and let living. To each their own and all that. I just took umbrage with the idea that it’s ignorant for folks to believe that vegetarians don’t get enough vitamins in their diet when doctors have been saying exactly that for pretty much as long as people have been vegetarians. Whether right or wrong, I don’t think that conclusion is one of ignorance.

         @Cyberxion  @OfficialJab I think it could be like Wayne’s World. He has his web show, but there’s a lot more too it outside as well.

    Is Super Mecha Death Christ going to be in the movie? Just rewatched the Wizard episode and was thinking how great it’d be to see him in the movie!

    What happened to Battle Beyond the Stars? Was it removed due to copyright infringement? Or were there editing problems? Or something else?

       @TEvil I think that if someone can make a full length movie off a character like pee wee herman that making a movie with a substantial plot for the AVGN can also be done.
       
      If done right you can take any minor character and give them a plot to be involved in, i’ll wait till it comes out before i say it’s going to be bad

    • frank_brownfield

      February 27, 2012 at 5:30 pm

       @TEvil How the hell did they make a movie out of “Wayne’s World” ? A good chunk of SNL skits were made into films some were good, some were bad. Will this be good or bad? We dont know till it actually is released. But James passion for films make me confident it will be good.

    To anyone who doubts the power of organic effects: “The Thing”.
    To anyone who doubts the possibilities of stop motion animation: “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
     
    Unfortunately, CGI is a lot cheaper…

    • Rosvolainen

      February 27, 2012 at 4:55 pm

       @RobinLudvigIsomaa It’s so sad though. As James has said many times there’s just something about seeing a really good stop motion effect or such that makes you wonder how they did it. With CGI you have the answer right away: the used the computer. Period. It’s just not the same.

    • MartinBohm

       @RobinLudvigIsomaa  …I’m working in the VFX industrie and no: CGI is’n cheaper! It’s even much more expensive if it’s done right.
      But you are completely on control of everything in CGI…that’s what makes directors preferring CGI…
      But don’t get me wrong: Very often I like SFX more than VFX!

    I actually wrote a screenplay for a AVGN movie 2-3 years ago :’) It was basically about how the nerd goes to a game store and find an unlabeled NES cartridge game & it turns out it was a alien communicator & now alien robots are trying to hunt the Nerd down and retrieve the cartridge

    You can hire an effects team, but renting time at shooting locations is too expensive?  Dang, the Hollywood economy is messed up.

    Well that ended abruptly =)
     
    I thought it was buffering and sat there for a good 4 minutes. Yes, I sat there almost twice as long as the video itself. Very rare for James to just cut to nothing like that without any indication the video was ending.
