Inside Ursula Hitler's Head 48: The Making of "Invasion of the Posh Spice Zombies"
Poop. I forgot to post this one along with the other Invasion of the Posh Spice Zombies videos. Well, better than late than never?
This video explains a lot (like, a lot) about how the Posh storyline came to be, and how I make my videos in general. There are some things I like about it, but in general it really didn't turn out the way I'd hoped. I was imagining it as a parody of those "making of" TV specials, but I don't think it really reads like that. It just seems like me going on (and on) about how I made this series, and it's not very funny. Generally I'm not crazy about the cartoons where "Ursula" herself appears. She tends to talk too much.
In this cartoon I talk about those green frames that Videospin randomly inserts in my cartoons, and I guess maybe I pissed Videospin off by badmouthing it because it went crazy with the green frames in this cartoon. I can usually edit most of them out pretty easily, but sometimes I can't cut them without causing audio problems and other times one slips by without me noticing it. That's what I meant when I say, "Whoops, looks like I missed another one."
Really, I think this cartoon kind of fails, as a cartoon. But if you're a hardcore fan (do I even have hardcore fans?) or if you're really curious about doing special effects with Videospin or something, I suppose it's worth watching.
I wonder if the real Wil Wheaton ever saw this cartoon. If so, I imagine he was very, very confused. Even I'm not sure what Lego Wil Wheaton was doing in there. It seemed funny at the time.
