AVGN Movie VFX Status 5-11-2014

James / May 11th, 2014


We’ve come a long way. I went from managing 50 artists, down to 5. It was the biggest test I’ve ever had on my directing and organizational skills. It’s been a mentally exhausting process, but now the load is much lighter, so I’ve been concentrating more of my efforts on a bunch of other things, simultaneously, like getting the sound and music started, as well as working out plans for the release. EVERYTHING is all going on, at the same time.

    That is great to hear. I hope the movie comes out sooner than later.

    Awesome man, I’ve been a big fan of yours since like 2008 and I cannot wait to see the magnum opus that is the AVGN Movie! Keep up the excellent work because it will hella pay off in the end.

    The excitement mounts! A short video on what the sound & music processes entail might be entertaining, for those of us who’ve never done it.

    Good job, James. This has been a long time coming. I respect how much hard work you and the others have put into making this film.

    Good to see we’re almost done with this phase. Real quick though, can you let us know if we’ll see anything special to celebrate 10 Years of AVGN?

    HOLY CRAP, YES πŸ˜€ I had to do a double-take at the board. Keep up the fine work, Mr. Director.

    What are the odds that the paper I’ve been following the whole time is still there? Wow!

    You probably know this already but you should finish these first, don’t let it all become too chaotic unless there’s no choice. Even if that was the case, speaking of getting stuff done for the movie, this deserves a bit more attention because it’s almost done, don’t leave anything unconcluded.

    Send me a pre-screen copy of the movie thanks

      Unless you know James personally, or worked on the movie, I think that happening would be very unlikely πŸ˜›

  • May 11, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    keep up the great work james

  • diegowar

    May 11, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    I don’t know why, I’ve a feeling you’re not going to start directing a new movie right after you’ve got this one finished, and take a little break, hehe πŸ™‚

    Oh my goodness, you’re SO CLOSE! I would gladly wait another year for this movie, but your progress continues to astound me. You’re the man, James!

    Awesome!! Only 4 pictures left on the wall. I expect next week’s update to be an empty board, with James standing off to the side, smiling and pointing at the now empty board lol.

    • May 12, 2014 at 8:27 am

      Or maybe even a look of shock, AVGN style. πŸ˜‰

    • May 13, 2014 at 1:04 am

      or a video of the James smashing the board, setting it on fire, and then peeing on the fire to put it out.

    The end is in sight. I eagerly anticipate the release of this film. Can’t wait!

  • May 12, 2014 at 1:33 am


  • May 12, 2014 at 8:26 am

    Well, keep up the good work. Just so you know, as of May 24 I’ll be away for 4 weeks. I hope I can help you with any sound designs after then.

  • May 12, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Are you going to make a video of you ripping the last one down?

  • May 12, 2014 at 10:25 am

    OOOOO soooo close! PLEASE make this movie available in theaters, maybe just small town independent movie houses?

  • RocketeerRaccoon

    May 12, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Oh my, only 4 things left! I can’t wait for the update video and show everyone an empty board. πŸ˜€

  • May 12, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Keep it up James! I can’t wait for the release. Do you plan to have a release in SoCal?

  • Lightseeker

    May 12, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    OMG! Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  • May 12, 2014 at 8:38 pm

    WOW!!! I am beyond excited for this movie to come out. I am still hoping there is a way for people to come to the first showing.

    Look at that board. It’s almost completely empty. Good job James, and anyone else involved.

  • Freezepond

    Production is done, VFX are almost done, and I am sure that sound design and music will go by quickly, seeing as how there are many talented people who have made covers of The Nerd theme. I am hyped! I am guessing this will be done in less than 2 months now.
