Wii Fit: The End of an Era

The first web short that I’ve produced in a long time focuses on the travesty that is Wii Fit and the Nintendo Wii in general.

We actually shot this last summer, but seeing how Wii Fit has dominated the Top Ten charts for over a year now, I think it’s still pertinent. Damn you Nintendo!

Wii FitAttention Nintendo Fanboys: Don’t get your panties in a bunch. I’m as big a Nintendo fan as they come; I’m just saying what we’re all thinking!

The New Adventures Returns!

The only thing better than shooting a new episode of The New Adventures of Ben & Jared is getting paid to do it! The comedy site Just For Laughs .com purchased a revamped pilot episode of Ben & Jared to get fresh look at the series in the “webisode” format. If all goes well, this will be the first of many.

This new episode should be considered a reboot for the show, even though the previous episode probably still fits into the continuity of the series. Right now the new pilot is up exclusively on the Just For Laughs site, although I’m sure it will make its way to YouTube in the near future. Go check out the pilot, and if you like it then show us some love and leave a comment!

Cast/Crew:

  • Ben: Ben Mallahan
  • Jared: Jared Reilly
  • Intern: Nic Morden
  • Beth: Nirvana Houghton
  • Jenna: Katelynn Collins
  • Camera: Dan Seibert
  • PA: Becca Mallahan
  • Writer/Director: Ben Mallahan

If Just For Laughs uploads the pilot to their YouTube channel, or allows me to upload it to mine, I’ll post a quick update here. For those of you who might have missed it, the old episode (the OLD Adventures of Ben & Jared?), it can be found on my YouTube channel.

New Video: Chocolate Skittles

The first time that you come across a package of Chocolate Mix Skittles, you may find yourself morbidly curious as to what they actually taste like. This short commercial spoof sums up my initial reaction to trying them.

*Language Warning*

Featured? Cool!

Looks like the video I posted this morning has been featured at gametrailers.com and slashdot.org… thanks to the respective editors at those sites for choosing it!

To many of you Game Trailer commenters: Jared’s eyes are the best thing that ever happened to the internet. What you don’t see in the video is me out of frame coaching him to look crazier!

Anyway, we had a lot of fun making this. Also, any gaming fans who have never been to this site before will probably get a kick out of another video games related project I’m working on…

Video: The JUSTIN BAILEY Conspiracy

Four videos inside of three weeks? Madness!

Anyway, this new short is for old-school Nintendo fans and gaming nerds. Surely, most of you remember (or at least know of) the infamous JUSTIN BAILEY code?

No one has ever known the origin of the code’s name… until now. All of your burning questions will be answered in “The Justin Bailey Conspiracy”

Warning: language and 8-bit nudity.

 

Video: Ben & Jared Part 2

Dying to find out what happens to Intern? Mildly curious? Part 2 of The New Adventures is finally here!

The New Adventures of Ben & Jared — Part 1 has been up on YouTube since last November, and I’ve finally got around to editing Part 2. Considering that we shot this entire thing almost a year ago, I suppose it’s about time to release it!

Now we’ve been talking about making more episodes of this series for a long time now, so this likely won’t be the last adventure of Ben & Jared. Hopefully I’ll be able to shoot an episode and turn it around in less than a year next time 🙂

WSMC 2008

This past weekend I returned for the 7th straight year to produce the short film/awards ceremony video for the Washington State Math Championship in my hometown of Blaine, Washington. The video features Jared Reilly and students from Blaine’s Middle School math team.

I’m actually on the road doing some shooting in Boston right now so I haven’t been able to update the WSMC page on the site, but I have uploaded a 22 MB Quicktime of the video, and also uploaded it here to my archive channel on YouTube. I didn’t upload it to my main profile because I use that account exclusively for web shorts, etc

Thanks to everyone who participated and for the great response to this year’s video! I hope to see all of you next year!
