I am Joel!\n\nI am a filmmaker! I make shorts and features and post them all on this channel!\n\nTHE PROMISE:\nIf you make a movie (a feature length film, 40+ minutes) and send it to me, I will watch it.\n\nMaking movies is so possible nowadays, all my features cost anywhere from $0-$500. I see my promise to watch people's movies as a nice form of encouragement. There are so many systems and roadblocks (and lies) in place that keep us unambitious and apathetic in the medium, and I hope the promise that a filmmaker will watch and care about your hard work can be that little push some may need to create something bigger.\n\nI also encourage people to make short films and lots of them! Short films are great grounds for fun and experimentation, and you get better and better at filmmaking every time you make a short. Because shorts are so much easier to make, I can't promise to watch everyone's shorts.\n\nConsider supporting my work on Patreon - www.patreon.com/joelhaver

  3. Roy Spector

    I love you <3 I'm not going to make these types of videos, but I was really interested. Thanks for explaining!

  4. tarael86

    This is the greatest redemption arc ever written.

  5. xeGODex

    It gets even better now that I know how he makes it

  6. Travis Jones

    This is so unbelievably funny

  7. Artem Katelnytskyi

    The absolute desperation for acceptance of humans really shows when one shows somebody a video.

  8. Ains 2

    As an aspirational supervillain, i vow that if i ever get a shrink ray i will only use it on men's crotches and women's chests.

  9. DrGrunty

    I loved this. It felt real. Why is it that it's so underwatched

  10. SuperAleksandar94

    I think you'll be working on multimillion dollar budgets in five years

  11. charles chase

    Yup this is a style called rotoscoping. I learned this in my art and animation class just last semester

  12. Mark Hacker

    Thank you for this! You are amazing

    This could be the next big lez show

  16. Karl Lavender

    Mate.. I dunno why the algorithm takes us on the journey that it does.. I, as have many others, only recently found your channel. Your dad , truth be told, your mom and friends involved too, appear to be all be awesome people. I'm not a religious person, but for what it's worth, if your dad is up there he is gonna be proud of you and where you're taking this art, and he can surely see a growing population of people laughing with him and at him in the skits. This video was tough to watch and, I assume, much tougher to make. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Andrew Robinson

    If you replace Ebsynth with Absinthe it works the same, but only for yourself.

  18. JohnJackLynch

    That one character with a completely different accent from everyone else :D

  19. Caleb Massey

    Why don't you drop your frame rates down from 100 to 24 on the recording to help ease the process

  20. sweatyDan

    Just goes to show you how devastating a single gun would've been in medieval times.

    This video, among other things, made me realize that home phones are actually out of style now and I have no idea when that happened.

    This is the most important post you will ever read. Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers.. Yet this is only four of our many transgressions. The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good deeds because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left his throne in heaven and came to this earth. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake. Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’.. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace.. Except gifts can either be accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response; Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him, and through gratitude in the sacrifice of his son, repent (turn away) from your old way of life. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward (Romans 10:9). Do these things, and you will be saved. If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife. You’ve been informed; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you spend ETERNITY, meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make; And all of us here, whether believer or atheist, know deep down that every last word here is true. Jesus Christ awaits YOU this very moment. Don’t even think about sleeping tonight until you surrender your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.. And as it is written (Hebrews 9 : 27); ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’ . All glory, honor and praise to Lord Jesus Christ.

  45. Drew Hessler

    Dude. THANK YOU. I've been trying for months to make this short animation of myself talking and I literally had to screenshot each and every frame, put it into procreate, trace it and color it. All like 500. This just saved me literal months of work

  46. RockStar2D

    I love that this is #22 on trending and that you're has grown so much in such a short period of time. You deserve it, man, you really do. You inspire me and many others to keep going in our art form (mine is writing), so thank you :)

  47. Krzysztof Kurczab

    Classic JRPG character arc

  51. Dude

    That Pentagon story almost killed me lol.

  52. Oliver

    ▼ HOW SHOULD I ADD MORE KEYFRAMES? Always start with one painted keyframe and run the synthesis. After a while you‘ll see the output frames start to get messy. That‘s the time to add more keyframes. You‘ll create one by picking one of the messy result images and fix it by painting additional brush strokes over it. That way you make sure that all keyframes are consistent which is essential for the natural looking of the final blend.

  55. Drake Hood

    what a visionary, it's truly inspirational how he went from being a rite ade employee to a genius pushing the bounds of our current scientific understanding.

  56. Falon

    It's amazing how normal Joel talking about the step-by-step process is just as uncomfortable as one of the in-character skits.

  57. Zippo1234

    never delete your old videos.

  58. Garrett Meyer

    His nails are painted thank me later

    I love how it randomly cuts to him telling someone " You are important, and you have value", and then the guys health bar disappears

  63. Dario Susu

    Perfect casting

  78. Poly180 Animation Studios

    I am thankful for 72 subs, and only 2% to 1% of those people actually participate in my channel. yey, whoopie, great new year. As I always say, big KGup channels become bigger, and small KGup channels sink deeper and deeper, like me yey.

  79. KillerTurnip

    This is too real 😂
