Luminary Week Day Five: I'm an Animaniac!

Having been more than impressed by the wonderful work that Josef has done for this campaign (and let me tease you that his next project is one to really get excited about) I felt a little guilty that I had not created a video of my own since way back in the early days of the campaign. I'm not adept at video editing, truth be told I'm not adept at very much at all, but I can find my way around Photoshop and came up with a little something to add to our Youtube page - all in the name of Luminary Week.

I really wanted to show you guys that you don't have to be particularly clever, or even talented, to cobble something together that will help to spread the word and recruit more soldiers for Franks Army. A music montage, a little promo piece like mine, a talking head style clip featuring your passionate plea for a return of Frank Black: anything helps the cause and Youtube is such a powerful tool for promotion when all is said and done it cannot be ignored.

So get your thinking caps on and remember, every little thing you do for this campaign is greatly appreciated by us. Nothing is too big or too small.

We do hope you guys have been enjoying the week so far and we urge you to check back tomorrow for what is the true highlight of this week, an exclusive interview with Chip Johannessen who reveals which member of Millennium's cast influenced the story of Luminary, why Glen Morgan and James Wong angered him and why he wasted Chris Carter's time. Intrigued eh? Thought you might be....

Holy cow! Yoo-Haw!

This is stunning. Editing is one thing, but to be able to do this kind of style...or any style for that matter is impressive.

You sell yourself way too short Mark.

This is beautiful, I kinda wished it was longer. But I know it was hard and I can't begin to think how to do this myself even.

I agree with Josef,I wish it was longer.Very well done in my opinion.

Hi guys,
Many thanks for the kind words. It is far from perfect and very short but I wanted to do my bit for Youtube. 176(ish) frames went into that very short piece so don't expect me working for Pixar any time soon.

All part of the good fight for Frank Black and well worth it.

☆☆What, when, where and wow☆☆

That's fantastic, really fantastic. Lance is doing Godkiller at the moment right? If they're just going to sit on the rights to Millennium or don't want to commit to a movie why don't they do something like that? Almost all major franchises have had some sort of animated treatment at some point.

Time for Fox to get as creative as people here are. I want a really long animation for Halloween. Pretty please....♥

FoxyWonder, you'll give Mark a heart attack! :D But that's an awesome idea.

Hoo-Yaw, Semper fi
Mark, you are good! Just to be able to accomplish a 34 second video is beyond me. I really like it! Hopefully, your hard work will show people who are afraid for whatever reason that they have nothing to fear. We are not "Judge"ing anyone on their talent.

Wonderful job...I believe thats Pixar on the other line...maybe you should take that call.

This Is Who We Are!!

That is SO GOOD! This episode (and the narration) always makes me cry.)

For fear of giving Mark a heart attack (and I wouldn't want that to happen obviously) MORE MORE MORE!

That was excellent! I am in awe. This reminds me of the Godkiller style of animation. It feels so fresh. I say start a campaign for an animated Millennium movie with Mark as the lead animator! You have got some talent. *thumbs up* The animation, choice of music, dialogue and was great to watch.
