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 -

  • Every time my mom chaperoned kids would call her “The eagle” cuz they said she looked like one. I told her the namesake was because she was so vigilant. I felt so bad lol

  • This needs to be longer..or have a part 2.. I'm also taking notes for my dating profile.

  • For people who think he should have been allowed to do an Asian accent for the first part, should he also do a black face for the second part?

  • I didn't realize how short this video is and thought I was in for an exciting bounty hunter adventure and then he just said "I'm good" and it ended. Classic Joel

  • Why is this always relevant...

  • "Dont illegally download songs. Cause they WILL find you, and each song is an $80,000 fine" Me with a literal case of burnt CDs and about 500 more just downloaded on my phone: '-'

  • Isn't that fun? ha... That's crazy

  • Do you ever plan on uploading the videos before the rotoscoping?

  • i appreciate u for this

  • Freaking awesome video!!! Reminds me of old Newgrounds content. The love of the art pushes other people into learning techniques.

  • "I brought crack" "Oh you brought crack to smoke in the crack pipe?" "...I brought fire wood..."

  • Well now I’ve seen 3 maroon 5 videos. Thanks Joel!

  • dat rach 2

  • Walk a mile in these lou#$%%#@=/! 😂

  • wheres the 200k 300k 400k and 500k special?

  • This man is a treasure in every way. <3

  • TRUUU dude

  • I love this so much. I hate these missions were following traffic laws and being 4 cars back in a queue at a red light is suspicious and being 6 cars back smashing into people and walls is not suspicious 😂

  • But before we get started with todays video, don't for get to leave a kungo and be sure to dungo and hit the bell icon!

  • I'm literally always doing the amen break with my hand hitting my leg or a table, but I have ADHD

  • They're just talking about zoomers

  • what camera and lens does he use? Does anybody knose? So crisp

  • Goddamit Joel

  • Haza

  • Joel <3 Ebsynth

  • Give me some context here... is this something gamers do a lot?

  • "My wife can *not* find out about *this!*" Keeps his goals on the fridge.

  • He will always be with you. He loved you as much as you loved him. Judt the best person you can be. I'm sure he is smiling and laughing his ass off with along the way.

  • Whaaa???


  • Just watching all your videos for the first time now. This was the biggest plot twist and right after watching you introduce happy the turtle thinking that would be the biggest plot twist.

  • This is the closest and smoothest animation I've seen to life, and its so realistic im getting uncanny valley

  • Whatup Jeffrey.

  • Thanks for your videos! Also your opinions on creativity it was very insightful.

  • Mando reunited with Grogu

  • What in the fuck. This is time consuming but genius.

  • wow man. your videos are freaking amazing. there is so much depth in these it's unbelievable. how the metal giant's health bar dispearred after being told it has value is a hint towards the most recent episode when health bars only show who's an enemy to themselves. the metal giant is no longer an enemy

  • when you like different people,, all those different people have something in common, YOU... so idk

  • Can you suggest equivilants? I downloaded wondershare and it won't let me export as a png.

  • Cool video dude. I already commented on one earlier video that I really dig that VHS and Rotoscope looks of the video (looks like I was indeed right about the art style inspiration). It's quite interesting technique and I don't think anyone makes "actual" rotoscope animations by hand drawing/painting these days as that would be massive work to do. I don't think this "computer aided Rotoscoping" makes it any less. It's still the very similar art style imo and actually allows more improvisation that the very original rotoscoping. Anyway rotoscoping (whatever the form is) is so little seen style that it's refreshing to see it in any form, even if someone says it's fake technique.

  • did you notice at 2:04, that's probably the dog he killed in a previous episode. how he thought it was vicious but it was a neighborhood dog named spot lol

  • can you believe a rat burned down a town by itself? lol

  • i like your lady hands, lady

  • I am here because of jester jones

  • This is a masterpiece.

  • Is this AI/ML generated drawing? 🤔

  • Good job, it's a good one, this one here? It's good.

  • When i saw the thumbnail, i was confused, and asked myself, "By mean The Most Peculiar Man, is the right guy or the left guy?"

  • I feel like I would understand this better if I actually watched Thor: the dark world.

  • Releases his technique, the more tools out there for people the better. Gets used by unskilled people to make 2D porn into 3D porn.

  • I love how his animated characters almost always look confused.

  • Something is wrong, he doesn’t say huzzah

  • It was clear the other band members were too close minded to appriciate the level of genius in Ronny's performance in how he broke free of all the musical conventions and ascended above their level in music theory.

  • Man, You are a good man!

  • soooo a scanner darkly?

  • Joel not wearing a mask in public: "yea this was several years ago so it's not illegal..."

  • Must of been my imagination

  • You’re a legend dude

  • This whole thing is the noises I make getting out of bed

  • One dude making pretty damn decent rotoscope on the fly *by himself* for cheap/free. Every dreaming would-be animator out there: *Write that down! WRITE THAT DOWN!* For real, Ebsynth could become serious GODS to making animation far more accessible and affordable. Like, animated work no longer need to involve being entirely CG, which is among the cheapest/quickest to produce but there's still a tone of work to learn and do. Hand-drawn animation could make a total comeback in the near future where it's not just all anime anymore. Cartoons can look lively again with having A.I. work most of its magic through inbetween frames and the artistic teams could be freed to do other things like ironing out kinks, focus on backgrounds, or start other interesting projects.

  • Ah, the plight of a drummer.

  • These videos are the funniest things ever and I love the way it’s animated the audio and just the graphics are perfect.

  • The green guy looked pissed at the end. You should do part 2 where the green betrays the emperor for calling him stupid

  • But would this work on Hitfilm?

  • Joel. You're so weird. I love it and I love your animations. Especially, I love your philosophy on art and creating. Thanks dude.

  • If I was there seeing Joel getting punched in the head, seeing one of the greatest artists of all time getting attacked, I don't think I could hold back the anger against the dude that punched him, I would probably dismember him right then and there like a shark to keep Joel safe. You don't attack Joel or his crew. It's just not done. We're everywhere to protect you now man. Next time it happens I just might be there to defend you. Criminal Armageddon 2021, kill all criminals!!!!

  • Seeing the amazing things you've made since then, I'm sure your dad would be proud. A bit late, but I'm sorry for your loss.

  • I think this is the first skit that has made me truly happy.

  • Your dad must be proud of you cause you make the coolest uplifting videos ever man.

  • Almost 2 months ago I stumbled upon this channel and saw "Playing an RPG for the first time." And loved it, so i watched the other 4 animated videos before that, and not long after the mafia one was released. i was hooked. Ended up showing all my friends, and would randomly replay them when i was bored at work, and here we are now. Maybe i wasn't paying attention in the beginning but it looks like his channel is really taking off, and i feel thankful that i found this channel at such a time.

  • Dude... This looks like such a HUGE pain in the ass to make. Therefore, all your animated vids are a 10/10. They are all straight up amazing and fun to watch. Keep up with what your doing, because it seems to be right. Cheers!

  • "we're not supposed to see you yet..." "I know"

  • This video is underrated

  • Least viewed vid at 100 views. It's amazing how most if his videos before 2020 had under 1k views.

  • God these faces are unnerving but so unique

  • Looks like he’ll be the one subscribing to more weekly shorts this time

  • After watching the recent “how it’s drawn” video. I now recognized that the main character doesn’t blink.

  • I totally agreed that the awkwardness is the best part of these animations.
