Hey, everybody, my name is Joel Otero, I just wanted to say a few words.

     I want to say THANKS for being there and checking in on the blog even when I haven't posted anything new in so long.

        As some of you know, I've been working for Sam & Dan Games for months now working in the art dept. on all sorts of games, games I can't talk about here, but it is all very exciting and it makes me super happy.

         Right now, I'm working on a buffer for the PTD episodes in order to release them weekly on Youtube.

         I have been coming up with a business plan and a line up for the fall of 2014 to release a re-branding if you will of Aperture Eye Films. I'm developing old and new ideas in order to bring quality and quantity entertainment on a consistent basis.

Samurai Toad concept art.

I have some ideas I've been developing and I'm spending the weekend figuring out which one to start production on for the line-up. The concept art above is an example of some of the ideas bouncing in my head. I have to iron them out, sketch them out and begin the writing process.

All I want from you is your patience, support and likes on Facebook. Seriously, we have a Facebook page, have you seen it? Do you follow me on Twitter? If not, wtf...just kidding. 

The next PTD episode is coming soon. Goonies never say die!

As always thanks for your support, I love you guys. Leave a like if you want to see more blog posts and or PTD episodes, subscribe and become a friend today! Later!

Let's Talk Tech! Jack talk tai real good...what?

   Question of the week- What's your favorite Christmas movie of all time?

     If you're interested in learning 3d modeling, but don't want to spend money buying 3ds max or maya, then blender is the way to go. I'm learning how to use it this week and my good friend and master modeler Albert Viñas has put together this beginner's tutorial that makes it really easy to understand the interface and workflow of Blender.

Take a look at Albert's tutorial video he just uploaded. If you wanna say "hey Albert, I like this,
a'make'a more of these helpful tutorials" [in your best Mario voice] then subscribe to his channel vinefilms2   

click like if you like it, thank you bro's, without your support we DIE!!! @_@

It's a so easy, a plumber could do it!

Question of the week- What's your favorite Christmas movie of all time?

Some people walk like this in real life!

       What if I actually posted some videos on YouTube and made content. Life would be a little bit more interesting, or not.

      I've been talking, planning and discussing strategy with my good friend Albert Viñas and brother/boss Sam Otero some ideas for cartoons and games and movies and stuff, but they all have one thing in common, they all take a really long time to make. We all agreed that it's in our best interest to make really fast and short content, but that means a loss of quality, bla, bla.

      I realized that I spend a lot of time working on projects, but no time finishing or posting them. So I decided to post my work in progress in an attempt to fill my YouTube channel with a lot of videos. Please help me, by liking each video, sharing whatever is share worthy and subscribing for more content. I'm pretty much going to share bits and pieces of my workday while talking about what's trending now in topics that I like to read about (maybe). Stop me if this is a terrible idea in the comments below.

      This morning I began rigging and testing "David", a character for a web cartoon Albert and I are currently working on. Here's a walk animation test. Here's the video.

Some people walk like this in real life!

        I figured, if I spend hours without end trying to make these projects work, why not screen grab some of the work or make a small clip like the one above and share my journey as well, I might make some people smile, laugh or yawn. At least it's different, right. Anyways, I'm going to upload one or two videos every week, who knows maybe more. Let me know what you think in the comment section.

Great things are happening at Aperture Eye Films!

Written by: Joel Otero

I am proud to say that we're still alive and kicking. Great things have happened during this month and I have to talk about it.

          My brother offered me a job a couple of weeks ago at SnD Games. I took it and here I am, working from home again. :)

        He and I began working on a game idea that I can't talk about, but I'm very excited to be working on it. I'm also working on several other projects for them that are really cool. It's great!

        I got reacquainted with two film buddies from the past that are really good at what they do, Andy Sipe and Albert Viñas. The later of the two [Albert] has decided to join my team in Film and Animation. He will bring amazing art and talent to Aperture Eye Films. He's a great guy and a brilliant mind. Welcome aboard Mr. Viñas!

Can't wait to show you some new cool videos and artwork from Aperture Eye Films as well as some cool new games from SnD Games. It's going to be a great 2014! Cheers!
