For awhile here, most of my updates will consist of me saying how the list of people agreeing to be interviewed for has continued to grow. So this is one of those. Some very cool people from the world of animation, both on and offline, have agreed to speak with me (as well as people from other areas). I don't want to count my chickens and spill the beans until the interviews are in the can though, so you'll just have to take my word for it awhile.
I wanted to also mention that for January I'll be investigating whether or not I can get NG fans in Boston and Baltimore to host a meetup in each city, so I can can attend and start talking to fans!
So I got the first in a series of interviews with Tom under my belt today and I thought it went quite well. We were interrupted only by the occasional rumble of the passing regional rail outside the window and Bob's obsession with a recent SNL digital short played at full volume in the office.
The list of interesting people who are willing to talk to me and be in the film continues to grow. Right on.
Here's me interviewing Tom. Even from a still you can tell that he's giving brilliant answers to my highly insightful questions.
HI there. My name's Nathan and I'm making a feature-length documentary about Newgrounds and the evolution of the Internet. I'll interview a bunch of NG users along the way and I'd love your input and ideas. While it is going to be a serious and informative film in many ways, it will also be a lot of fun and it will feature tons of animation. Eventually, I'll be contacting some musicians and animators on NG about contributing to the finished product! Keep an eye on my user page for updates.
So... who wants to be in a movie?
So at this point, I have a short but slowly growing list of very interesting people who've expressed an interest in talking to me for the film. These are mostly authors and game reviewers at this point and next I'm going to start getting in touch with NG fans and notable Flash animators to talk to. I am always interested in cool interesting people to talk to who'd have something to contribute. Any suggestions?
So I'm not announcing it to too many NG users yet, which works out well since I'm sure nobody reads this blog (yet) but I'm now working on a film about Newgrounds. It's also about the evolution of the internet over the last 10-15 years, which is roughly the period of time Newgrounds has existed. I'll be interviewing staff and fans alike, as well as a number of other interesting folks. I aim to make it a fun and informative documentary which will include tons of animation and music from NG users. I'll also be looking for fan input and suggestions. Watch this space for more.

Howdy. So I've uploaded a song from my new Christmas CD called "Let's All S--k D--k on Christmas" and I'd be delighted if someone would make a funny video for it. I'd do it myself but I'm busy making another video for another track. LASDOC is written and sung by my friend Sam Kulik, if you want to check out his other music, just Google him. Yulenog 3 will be released forthwith and more info on that is available at YulenogMusic.com Check it out and if you have some ideas for the song just let me know.
Some people have said that it sounds "old." Well, kind of. It's not electronic music, that's for sure. It's a bunch of us in a room playing instruments and singing with a couple microphones. That's how people used to record music, so I guess in that sense it is "old fashioned." Enjoy.
