Oh, oh ya know, having a baby, that’s just like a little minor detail, just a bit of a footnote
April 18, 2013 at 6:53 pm
🙂 He made a video of the evening of the Trailer Premiere where he broke the news about the baby.
April 19, 2013 at 1:56 pm
He announced it MONTHS ago.
July 5, 2013 at 9:34 pm
i’m also pretty sure that he had his baby girl…5 days after this was aired? Or maybe it was either late April or May…
April 18, 2013 at 6:40 pm
Can’t wait to see the film. you guys are the best!
April 18, 2013 at 6:54 pm
i cant wait to see the Movie. 🙂
im a fan of your work since the beginning of the Angry Nintendo Nerd 😀
Good Luck with all you do, i know you give more than your best. 🙂
Thanks for the update, James. Best of luck to you, your wife and your team!
April 18, 2013 at 6:56 pm
Thanks for the update James! No rush on the movie (You said it yourself: the longer it takes the better the result). Glad to know the project rolled along nicely.
April 18, 2013 at 7:00 pm
can’t wait to see the finished product. glad you’ve found the time to crack out a few more avgn episodes and other stuff too. keep up the good work! congrats on the baby too, best wishes for you and your family mate.
April 18, 2013 at 7:03 pm
James, however long it takes to make it, I’ll still buy it on DVD day 1! Keep up the good work!
April 18, 2013 at 7:05 pm
Can’t wait to see the Nerd jr.! Also can’t wait for the movie, you take your time with it and make it as good as possible, I think your fans can wait.
April 18, 2013 at 7:10 pm
James, I have been a fan for a long, long time (ever since the TMNT AVGN). I almost shit my pants whenever you first broke the news about the movie and then once again when you first talked about your baby. I have been updating my “Cinemassacre Filmography” list (with specific dates on most of the videos) so I have really been hanging on to every word about this movie. I have read all of your blogs, seen all of Mike’s videos and everything else. Cinemassacre is quickly becoming my favorite website. I check it at least once a day. But after all of that, there’s something I don’t know if I missed or if you haven’t shared with us yet. That is: “what is you baby girl’s name?” I am pretty sure your wife mentioned that you’re having a girl during the Metallica audio slaughter. I didn’t catch a name. Well, whatever it is I’m sure its lovely. I am also sure that I am going to buy multiple copies of your Nerd movie and every suqsequent film you decide to make. My best wishes to you, your friends and your family.
April 18, 2013 at 7:15 pm
can’t wait,happy to see things are coming together guys. :)contrats on the baby!
April 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm
Can’t wait for the movie and congratulations on the baby!
April 18, 2013 at 7:44 pm
Totally pumped! The movie’s looking great!
April 18, 2013 at 7:47 pm
Cant wait for the movie, been watching the Nerd since early 2008, this charachter showed me the world of internet reviewers. Thanks for everything James, and congrats on the baby.
April 18, 2013 at 7:49 pm
Congrats on the baby james, cant wait to see the movie.
April 18, 2013 at 8:23 pm
Even if the Nerd has to retire from playing bad games due to family life getting in the way(not guessing, just speculating), you will always have my respect and congratulations!
April 18, 2013 at 8:48 pm
CANT WAIT TO SEE THIS SHIT
April 18, 2013 at 8:49 pm
I’m so fucking excited for this. My anticipation for the movie is equal to any amount I’ve ever had for any blockbuster or big name movie in the past. The cinematography looks really nice in the clips you played, and I love how you enrich our minds with all the behind the scenes stuff while not giving too much away.
Congrats on the baby and congrats on getting those epic shoots finished. Cinemassacre forever.
You’re still my idol, James 🙂 take your time and make it perfect, man. Good luck as always!
April 18, 2013 at 8:51 pm
Super interesting and exciting — thanks for the update and can’t wait for the film to come out!
April 18, 2013 at 8:53 pm
April 18, 2013 at 8:55 pm
Congrats on the baby!!! Thanks for the update, really glad to hear about you trying to use more practical effects and less sci-fi movie cheese CGI. Can’t wait for the movie, it’s going to be great, I think we all would rather wait patiently and have you make the movie you want to make and not rush out something you’re compromising on to make some date. Keep up the good work and enjoy that baby time when it happens!
April 18, 2013 at 9:06 pm
Congratulations James! The movie is looking AMAZING! I admire your balance of family and work. Juggling passion is a tough task and you have kept your fans happy all the while.
If it’s a boy, you gotta name the little SOB after Motherfucker Mike…
Looking forward to your future, and thank you for your work.
April 18, 2013 at 9:10 pm
I gotta say I really love those behind the scenes photos. They make me hype up for the movie. Good luck with post production!
April 18, 2013 at 9:43 pm
Not to worry. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that it’s great to have the AVGN episodes, Board James and the other series you put out. I’m sure the movie will be worth the wait.
April 18, 2013 at 9:47 pm
BABY BABY BABY! That’s awesome, I’m stoked for the movie, and congrats! All the best to you, your wife, and your future child!
April 18, 2013 at 9:51 pm
April 18, 2013 at 9:53 pm
April 18, 2013 at 10:04 pm
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE BABY!
April 18, 2013 at 10:19 pm
Congrats on the baby and the movie! I will gladly pay $20 for this DVD. $20 x 100,000 people (your rich, bitch!)
April 18, 2013 at 10:20 pm
thx for letting us know mr.nerd
April 18, 2013 at 10:42 pm
great info keep up the good work
April 18, 2013 at 10:53 pm
that second group shot of people working…that woman on the bottom left…is that Mrs Nerd? I think I might recognize her from a halloween picture. or maybe I’m just crazy and seeing things.
April 19, 2013 at 12:38 am
Considering his wife would be 7-8 months pregnant when that pic was taken, no, that’s not her.
Google “James Rolfe’s wife” and you’ll see her pic.
April 19, 2013 at 10:18 am
No that’s James’ good friend Stephanie Yuhas from Cinevore Studios.
April 18, 2013 at 11:03 pm
Take as long as you need, I doubt the fans would have funded you if they didn’t have any faith in this.
April 18, 2013 at 11:21 pm
D8 a BABY on the way?! Holy Shit! Congrats guys! 😀 <3
April 18, 2013 at 11:38 pm
James, your wife is right: you are “genuine” and a really good person. You’re very considerate and generous to your fans and we all appreciate and support you. You’re also going to be an awesome father! Lucky kid!
April 18, 2013 at 11:51 pm
You da man James! Keep up the hard work!
April 18, 2013 at 11:54 pm
Can’t wait for the movie! I hope that it will be released in theatres in the Philadelphia area. Congrats on your growing family!!
April 19, 2013 at 12:18 am
Keep up the good work guys, i really hope our cinema will have your movie im really looking foward to seeing your movie, huge fan of Angry Video Game Nerd
April 19, 2013 at 12:20 am
CONGRATULATIONS ON BECOMING A FATHER!
April 19, 2013 at 2:31 am
Not yet dude..
April 19, 2013 at 12:27 am
It’s so nice to see you happy and to know the good news!
Q: Is Mike going to make an appearance in the movie?
April 19, 2013 at 1:00 am
This video is unwatchable for me. It takes a while to start and then stutters, and then the video seems to give up and jump forward as if video frames are just being dropped. I tried to tolerate it for about a minute before it froze completely, and the audio stopped too. I clicked around the site and even previously working videos are now doing this. What happened?
April 20, 2013 at 1:43 am
Update your Flash?
Try a different browser?
April 20, 2013 at 9:12 pm
Flash is updated, and the same problems occur in Opera, FF and Chrome. But the problem can’t be the browser, because all the videos had worked for a long time, until a week or so ago.
April 19, 2013 at 1:26 am
Awesome James, really looking forward to seeing it
April 19, 2013 at 1:31 am
Thanks for the update, James! I’m so thrilled for you! Please, by all means, take your time! You rock to the nth degree, good sir!
April 19, 2013 at 2:11 am
I predict that all of the filming will be done by August. I’m probably wrong, but hey that’s why it’s a prediction. Glad to see you don’t have much left to do, James. All us hardcore fans know why it has taken so long and have no problem with it taking this long because we know we’ll get a masterpiece in the end. Here is an idea you might want to ponder when you make a DVD release. Include the video game you’ve been promoting as a bonus. Either as a computer game, or better yet in unofficial production cartridges for the NES. Now that would be an awesome special to go with the DVD when you finally release it in say…2015? 🙂
April 19, 2013 at 2:28 am
I’m glad everything is going well with this movie. I’m widely interested in seeing what the finished scenes with the practical effects will look like after seeing a miniature model of the Nerdmobile and what looks like the Golden Gate Bridge.
April 19, 2013 at 2:30 am
Life’s looking pretty good eh. Keep it up James!
April 19, 2013 at 3:23 am
6TB full?? dear lord! cant wait!
April 19, 2013 at 3:39 am
Nice to see you’re so close to reaching the goal James, I can’t wait to see the final movie, I’m sure it will be everything I imagine since you retained artistic control. Looking forward to the final product
April 19, 2013 at 3:45 am
You’re having a baby?! 😀
Oh, lots and lots of congrats, man!
That’s just awesome! 🙂
Also I’m so looking forward to the movie. Keep up the good work!
April 19, 2013 at 4:02 am
I registered especially to send my congratulations on your baby! That must the biggest news, bigger than anything else you are working on. I am really looking forward to the AVGN movie. Good luck with the baby and all your projects!
April 19, 2013 at 4:07 am
Im so happy everythings is rolling, congrats james, you are supreme like chicken! and Mike and everyone at Cinemassacre
April 19, 2013 at 4:35 am

April 19, 2013 at 4:49 am
thanks for the update on the movie. take your time on it, i’d rather see a good movie you took your time on and did right instead of one you rushed through to get out there. i’m also glad you are using practical means then cg too, that bugs me in big budget films, its a cliche i hate, glad you are not focusing on doing that ;). keep us updated when you can. congrats on the baby, i also found i have one on the way too.
April 19, 2013 at 5:04 am
Love your work. Will buy it when you deside it’s ready. Congratulations to the child. I recently got myself a young son named Vincent. take care of the family. Lycka till från lilla landet Sverige
April 19, 2013 at 5:11 am
kick fucking ass james. can’t wait. this is going to be the best b movie ever. give jaws a run for its money lol.
really happy you are following thorugh on the film. i am very excited to see it. ill probably go see it in LA if you do a screening there with my friends. its also cool seeing me as an extra in these shots of the film. can’t wait. peace out.
April 19, 2013 at 6:02 am
I hope and pray you guys have backups to your harddrives so you don’t lose all that time and energy spent on the movie.
April 19, 2013 at 2:43 pm
i thought the same thing. make sure you backup the movie!
April 19, 2013 at 6:52 am
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m only willing to wait for this movie until Half Life 3 comes out. So what, 10 years? Yeah, I’ll only wait 10 years!
April 19, 2013 at 7:02 am
I’m so proud of you and your team, James! 😀
April 19, 2013 at 7:17 am
Congrats of finishing up all the major shots, glad to hear productions moving along. No matter how long it takes for the film to be complete, it’ll be more than worth the wait! It’s always exciting to see a glimpse from behind the scenes, and I just wanted to thank you, James, and your crew for all the hard work you guys have been doing to bring us fans something that looks truly awesome! 🙂
April 19, 2013 at 8:13 am
hell yeah. it actually doesnt seem like its been that long of a process. When did you announce the film last summer? thats nothing. take your time, we dont mind waiting.
April 19, 2013 at 8:24 am
Congrats on the baby James, does this mean we are going to have an AVGN Jr, cant wait for the movie man, keep up the good work.
April 19, 2013 at 8:41 am
Actually it’s usally different when it comes to VFX. You usally send the most uncompressed files that you have to them so they can composite it and work with it the best way. And typically these files are unlocked and not put together as sequences. 🙂 But it’s fine to do something else. But watch out, you can end up with some really nasty compression artefacting like colored, flickering specks that resemble noise but which aren’t actually noise. Just some advice.
April 19, 2013 at 8:43 am
Uncompressed as in almost raw, or raw if it’s possible. But it’s ok to Log and Transfer the files at first, so that they can be turned into a file that may be easier for some people to handle such as ProRes. Though changing a lower bit file into a higher bit one can result in artefacting as well, and so can some weird codec. Again, just some advice that I think you guys will like 🙂
April 19, 2013 at 9:59 am
Awesome to see and update – and some behind the scenes shots. I’ll look forward to seeing both the movie and the other stuff 🙂 Best of luck.
April 19, 2013 at 10:50 am
OMG!!!Congrats dude!!!You’re gonna be a dad!!!♥
April 19, 2013 at 11:06 am
very good news
April 19, 2013 at 11:10 am
You had better have another 6 TB to back up the first one! Always have a mirror drive! Mechanical hard drives are outdated technology that is severely prone to failure.
April 19, 2013 at 4:33 pm
Agreed 100% 🙂
April 19, 2013 at 11:28 am
When is the baby due?
April 19, 2013 at 11:34 am
I was expecting news from the movie and this are great news James!
I understand the hard work and the endless hours to finish a production of this magnitude, but in the end we all going to enjoy a true epic movie!
I cant wait to see it!
You are the best
Regards from Mexico City
April 19, 2013 at 12:30 pm
That’s great news!! And congratulations on the baby!! Wish you all the best 😉
April 19, 2013 at 1:01 pm
Can’t wait to see the film! Keep up the great work everyone!
April 19, 2013 at 3:37 pm
April 19, 2013 at 4:25 pm
Am I the only one who expects Super Mecha Death Christ Version 3 to make an appearance as the UFO?
November 9, 2013 at 5:48 pm
James has said before in an interview on something called Tainted Reality Telethon that Super Mecha Death Christ will not be appearing in the film, but that they have something even better in store.
April 19, 2013 at 4:41 pm
can’t wait to buy this movie
April 19, 2013 at 4:56 pm
Wow, I really hope, there is a backup of those 6 TB… 😉
April 19, 2013 at 5:02 pm
Congrats on your upcoming new addition. I watch the videos via the app, so I guess I didn’t get the original announcement. Excited for the Rolfe family. 🙂
April 19, 2013 at 6:20 pm
Awesome news on all fronts.
Keep it going James.
April 19, 2013 at 8:11 pm
AMAZING. James, thanks for all the updates. I really appreciate that you use practical effects – there’s something just so charming about them.
I can’t wait to see this movie. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to see a movie.
April 19, 2013 at 9:40 pm
James don’t go all Francis Ford Coppola on us now. I don’t want to see the next update with you directing from the tub. LOL. Looks awesome and cannot wait tell it is done. Also congrats on the baby. You sir have a full plate. Get some rest.
April 19, 2013 at 10:36 pm
Well, I for one can’t wait to see this film. I certainly hope you’ll put it out on DVD so I can buy it.
April 19, 2013 at 10:38 pm
As some one who has a studied film, I know how difficult movie making can be. Not surprised you went the practical effect route especially after seeing your other non Nerd videos (Deader the Better is great!) I look forward to this film being finished however long it takes. Also Congratulations on becoming a Dad
April 19, 2013 at 10:41 pm
And Many Happy Congratulations on the birth of your baby! Have to ask, though, if you feel like you have a lot of explaining to do about AVGN to your kid someday?
April 19, 2013 at 10:49 pm
Thanks for the update James. Take as long as you need. I’d rather it be the best it could be, rather than it come out quicker.
Best of luck with all the remaining work and with the baby!
April 19, 2013 at 11:56 pm
The real question I want to know is: When can I pre-order the movie? I don’t care when it is finished; I want to be one of the first to contribute to its sales. 🙂
April 20, 2013 at 12:04 am
I am continually excited for this film. I’ve always enjoyed the Nerd, and more recently have been enjoying your other works as well. Every update gets me more and more excited for the movie. I can’t wait to see it.
April 20, 2013 at 12:14 am
All very interesting. I had an idea of what kind of work goes into making a movie, but I never realized it took this much work! I can see how it would take a long time, especially with all those special effects! I am glad to hear you are on the home stretch, though.
And congrats again, on the baby. 🙂
April 20, 2013 at 12:52 am
Attention James! Be sure to do a call-out for VFX artists to help with post production. Would love to donate some time to do a few shots. I’ve already sent an email.
Cheers! Michael Wentworth-Bell http://thelode.com.au
April 20, 2013 at 1:58 am
Congrats on the baby, and I’m looking forward to seeing the movie! I hope you’ll make it available to watch legally un Hungary, either as a Region 2 (or free) DVD you ship internationally or a streaming service, I’d like to support it.
April 20, 2013 at 2:03 am
Congrats on having a child on the way.
April 20, 2013 at 3:52 am
Baby on the way? More another helping hand to edit!
April 20, 2013 at 4:33 am
I know you probably won’t answer me James, but…are you scared? Having a kid I mean. I am at the age now where my wife really wants to have a kid, but I’m scared to death about it. I don’t know what it is to be responsible for a life other than my own. How are you dealing with it?
April 20, 2013 at 4:37 am
April 20, 2013 at 4:52 am
“I have a 6 TB harddrive that just filled up”: I hope you are are keeping backups :).
April 20, 2013 at 5:10 am
You guys should upload this to the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign page. I almost didn’t notice such an important update!!
April 20, 2013 at 5:11 am
James will be the best father ever. Also, imagine being a kid with a dad who has that basement. Jesus, fuck.
April 20, 2013 at 5:34 am
Wow, the Angry Video Game Dad. AVGD. Has a nice ring to it. Congratulations to you and your wife. I know I speak for all your fans when I say we’d enjoy seeing a picture or two of your growing family sometime after the big day.
Keep up the good work James, and I hope to see the movie soon.
April 20, 2013 at 6:40 am
The release will be a great moment in nerd history. He will get a gold medal. 😉
Can’t wait to see it. I wish you the best luck, James!
April 20, 2013 at 7:02 am
Looks great! Can’t wait to see it finished and best of luck all of the folks involved!
April 20, 2013 at 7:58 am
Have the game reviews been shot already? No mention this time ’round. Good luck!!!
The game review parts in the film I mean.
April 20, 2013 at 8:14 am
Hey gratz James! I have a question! how am i going 2 see the movie i mean i live in sweden and i’m a big fan how really want to see it? is it coming in theaters here to or can I buy it on dvd want 2 know? thx!
April 20, 2013 at 9:40 am
Can. Not. Wait! I’m so excited about this movie. Keep up the good work. We’ll all be here when it’s ready.
Good to hear some new on the AVGN videos. It will be done when it’s done, this phrase is used a lot by Blizzard! Just take your time on this movie James, most of the greatest movies take time to polish.
April 20, 2013 at 9:55 am
April 20, 2013 at 10:03 am
congratulations on the baby james! my wife and myself are trying right now to get a little one on the way. you are such a lucky guy to get all this success and have a family that supports your cause. good luck with everything you do and i will always follow dinnemassacre. i can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since i started watching your videos. great work james, you’ve inspired me so much.
April 20, 2013 at 10:57 am
I hadn’t heard that you had a little nerd on the way. Congratulations on becoming a father! c:
April 20, 2013 at 11:51 am
Congrats on the new addition! Can’t wait for the movie either. I had no idea it wasn’t finished yet. Maybe in the future, an AVGN episode with the whole Nerd fam!
April 20, 2013 at 1:28 pm
Thanks for the update, James!
