  • Phone Scammer: "Sir I'm calling from microsoft, your windows computer is badly corrupted"
  • Me: "Oh. Really. I had no idea. Which one?"
  • Phone Scammer: "Your... windows one."
  • Me: "I own multiple windows computers, so you'll have to be more specific."
  • Phone Scammer: "The windows computer. Like XP. Or 7. Or 8."
  • Me: "Again, multiple. Do you have an identifier for it? Perhaps a current IP or a MAC address?"
  • Phone Scammer: "No, it's not a mac, it's a windows."
  • Me: "...Riiiiight. Gotcha. Then do you have a serial number for it?"
  • Phone Scammer: "Oh. Yes. The serial number is... um... 888DC8-116F0F-18C-1FC8-1C5C07."
  • Me: "...right. That's funny, see, because I built all the computers in my house right now. So they don't really have serial numbers. They didn't come from a factory. Unless that's the serial of the motherboard or something."
  • Phone Scammer: "No we don't have that information. But if you're not interested, that's fine."
  • Me: "No! I'm VERY interested. Please tell me more about this nonspecific corruption you know about."
  • Me: "Hello?"
  • Me: "Are you still there?"

I’m happy to see that your requests are dwindling down! Please don’t kill me for putting in another. ;_; But, what are your thoughts on the Sonic 3 mini boss/Knuckles’ theme? I enjoy it but you don’t get to hear it when you combine the games… :(

- poppiseed 

Considering the track labeled “S3 Knuckles” is just a drum groove, I believe this is the track you’re looking for!

The vocal samples are neat, as well as the different drum samples going on! It kind of reminds me of the Sonic CD [JP] boss theme, with how kind of all over the place it is! Each different part is doing its own thing, from the melody, to the bass, to the drums, to all those samples going on. There is a lot of play going on with the melody as well, with bends and dives in the synths. Man, I really dig those drum samples though—you don’t usually hear this sound utilized in a lot of Genesis tracks! It gives it a really fat, hip hop sound, which makes this even cooler! It is too bad that you don’t get to hear it when you combine the games, this is a real gem!

MIKE ROUSH / The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl / 5:16

I have always been fascinated by wildlife documentaries. As a kid I would take my mom’s camera and try and get as close to the neighborhood animals as I could. Most of the time this would mean long hours sitting motionless on the back deck with bird seed sprinkled on my lap and shoulders. I never got the shot I wanted, so when Chris and Shannon  asked me if I wanted to make an animated film for Titmouse, I said yes before they finished asking.

Rough turnaround.

"Owl" was animated in Flash. I used a technique where I would animate traditionally very rough, then I would take a second pass cleaning up symbols that I would be able to reuse later. Most of the final animation you see in "Owl" is puppeted symbol animation with hundreds of symbols and a different puppet for each shot. This way I could get the detail and animation quality I wanted.

The Flash break-down on one of the owl puppets. Lots of feathers!

One of my favorite parts of making this film was having to get out of the studio and go on location. I found an amazing place in central California called The Carrizo Plain using google maps. I spent the weekends driving all around taking pictures and exploring. Fun fact: The burrow used in the short was an actual owl burrow. On one of the days I was taking photos of the burrow one hissed at me from inside the burrow with it’s rattlesnake like call. It scared me nearly to death.

image

This is how I made all the “live action” backgrounds. I drew a storyboard of what I wanted and photo collaged lots of pictures together to make it look like what I drew. Unfortunately these places don’t exist in real life.

image

Whenever the owl had to touch the flower or fork, I took hundreds of photos, cut them out in photoshop and animated them. Fun.

image

On location I used a couple stand-in models to get the lighting right and a maquette when animating for inspiration.

I had a great time making this film and when I was done we were lucky enough to show it at festivals around the world. After 4 years the “Owl” showed at more than 40 festivals, in over 25 countries. 

Can’t wait to do another one.

Mike Roush’s incredible short film is now online!!! Don’t miss this one, folks! It’ll stick to your ribs likes delicious cartoon BBQ!

I was lucky enough to catch this at an animation festival a while back and it blows my mind as much now as it did then
