For the past few months, I've been directing at an amazing creative agency called Glass & Marker. It was formed by several of my high school friends who, in three short years, have made incredible ads for Google, Yahoo, Soylent, and a million other Bay Area tech companies. In the past, they'd pinged me to lead an animated commercial, but recently decided to throw me into the deep end to do live action. The commercial was for a company called Nimble VR whose aim is to bring your real hands into the virtual world.

Meet the Nimble Sense. This little device is a depth sensing camera that tracks the human skeleton for user input. It allows people to use their hands to interact with virtual reality, along with computers, games and screens in the real world too.

All throughout production, I couldn't stop thinking of this:

And this...

We spent nearly a week shooting interviews, real-world and VR use cases for the technology, and concepts for how it could be implemented in the future. It was incredibly fun getting behind the (non-animation) camera again to put this commercial together. The company, cast and crew are all proud of the video and product, so please give it a watch.

Speaking of which...Nimble VR launched their Kickstarter today so if you're interested in experimenting with this device or just investing in the future, definitely check it out. These guys have brought tomorrow one step closer to today.

Fat stacks of scripts

TurnerScriptScriptsSide Just got the first printed scripts for "Turner of the Century" — 113 pages of jokes, ghosts and explosions. My brother, Nick, and I will be doing a table reading with Ghostbot soon to discuss revisions. And where we can add more fart jokes. We're both incredibly proud of how the screenplay turned out and can't wait to tell you more about it. All you need to know is that it will be your favorite movie of 2016.

"Turner of the Century" Turned In

Today, my brother and I finished writing the screenplay for my next animated feature, Turner of the Century. It's an insanely fast and fun movie with more jokes than you can even imagine. Seriously. There aren't five seconds that go by without something funny happening. For those of you who've watched Dick Figures or Duke of Fancy, the humor is very similar. Lots of quick dialogue, cut-aways, and over-the-top action sequences. It likely won't come out until 2016 but you better start waiting in line now!

Dick Figures - "Red Planet"

I'm wayyyyy behind on posting Dick Figures episodes for Season 5 so let's get it back on track with one of my favorites! We always joked that Red was from Outer Space so it only makes sense that he should return to the Red Planet. Unfortunately for our two-tone heroes, their mission is to find the Mars Rover...who turns out to be a real robotic jerk. The song everyone's talking about is "Make It Funky" (which you can buy now) so if you like that and all the music from the series go check out my brother Nick's site: www.nickkellermusic.com.

AND if you just can't wait to see all ten episodes PLUS a special bonus episode PLUS all-new animated intros, you can buy Season 5 right now on Googleplay, Mondo Media and pick up the DFS5 Soundtrack while you're at it!
