Stop makign requests for movies

I never took requests before, where on earth did people get the idea that I take requests at all?!?!?

One example out of MANY:

"I got ideas, for some. Like Lady and the blonde chick(forgot her name) form devil may cry. Vs Alice and Ada from resident evil. I'v got more, but I don't want to clutter up your page with ideas you might not use."

And why should I take months out of my life to make a movie about said character whom you apparently don't even remember the name of?

In other news:
Updates coming soon I pormise

I have a request! That you make whatever damn movie you feel like making. That way it's done right because it's something you actually want to do ;)

Definetly would like to say thank you for your motivation. I know how long it takes to do what you're doing. Your work speaks loud and man you're killing it.

You found a very good niche and I'm sure you know what you want to do with it congrats on all the hard work.

You should totally do a video of Kratos and Mike Haggar, oiled up and wrestling Mano-e-Mano while Warchief Thrall and the Horde spectate.

-soundtrack provided by Cannibal Corpse

To make up for all the girly action you've been doing.

will also expand your audience base

That is pretty silly making requests for movies. I'm an animator so I can understand how long you work on your videos. I can't belive people don't realise that.

Well man I think you need to be a little more understanding of the situation. The fact that these people are asking you to bring their ideas to fruition means THEY arn't, which means you're the one staying at the top. If God hadn't given you such an amazing ability to do what you do and instead made everyone else just as capable then where would that put you...probably no where near where you are RIGHT now. Just be happy your so good others grovel at your feat, asking you to do something for them, all the while you grow and aspire into even more greatness while they just lay down and never go any more forward then necessary.

P.S. I'm not insulting you I'm just trying to give you a POV you might not have thought about.

lol. Some people just don't get
how much goes into creating a
masterpiece. It can be annoying
but try not to let the man get
you down.

I think it's similar to when artists
who've made a name for
themselves come around the
studio. We ourselves know not
to make a big deal about it, but
people who are just fans get
crazy and act strange. They
don't take into consideration
that they're having to deal with
this all the time and just need a
break.

Gosh. The downside of fame
I guess. Hang in there Mr Oum.

btw, can you make a movie
with a Barbie doll Vs.
Terminator? ;)

The blonde chick is called Trish, she was from
the 1st Devil May Cry & became a secret playable
character in DMC2, now she's coming back in DMC4
along with Lady. Also, you've forgotten Lucia...
the playable female hunter from DMC2!

LOL.... that jsut shows.. how close ppl think you are.. and what big fans you have.... madebe if you note sumtimes.. that you would like ppl to try and achieve doing animated stuff like you by themself and not ask you.. You detail how hard it is.. I think they get discourage and try not attempting it.. so.. they also see you get them out really fast.. So they thing they can push it upon you to forfill their visions. You should note that anyone can do it.. cause anyone can.. jsut need to put in the time and effort and they will succeed in it too. I have done animation b4 so i know how you feel when ppl start asking you to do things.. Dont take it to hard.. jsut do what you did here.. post how you dont do other ppls work.. But yah kinda flame a little.. teehee. I hope you become pro soon ^^.. I know I will be soon in my music ^^ Goodluck!

and even then if it got in the way of something I wanted to do for myself I'd say no.

Think of it less as people making requests and more:

"I really like your work and I think (insert popular whatever here) would look awesome done in your style."

The problem is that there is really no way to make such a statement over the internet without it coming across as begging or a poorly concieved attempt at manipulating you into doing what they have requested. If it makes you feel any better, many people would dearly love to be in the position you are in. Admired enough in what you do that people make special requests rather than just clicking through the information superhighway looking for more entertaining roadkill to stare at.

That said, the idea that people would bother to bug you with requests that were already the intellectual property of another is just silly to me. If they wrote it, if they made the models, did the skins, if they had some kind of actual creative input more advanced than "Wow, that would be cool" I would consider that while it may not be your cup of tea, this does not make their contacting you about it "bad" or "evil" though I admit that it could well be "annoying" if it is something you aren't into or if you get a lot of them. Hell, I spent most of the last year writing a story that I think could make for a fairly cool movie in flash or whatever. I have sent out a couple of proposals to various people. (No, you were not one of them.) But then, I never send anything out begging and I came up with the material myself so perhaps this is not the same kind of deal you are having trouble with.

Still waiting with as much patience as I can muster for your next work.

:)

Hey! I've got a great idea for a movie! You vs Idea-mongers! :D

Nah, I remember at one point I picked your brain over the topic of user made movies, but I don't think I ever really asked you to do anything of the sort. :) (and I hope I didn't give the impression that I was.)

You're a victim of your own success, my friend. :nod: You made great fighting movies, and now everyone and their mom wants X Character to fight Y Character. :) You should post a disclaimer somewhere; "Not taking requests."
