Happy New year to you as well Stoo. This year has already been very good to me.

My apologies to everyone for not producing part 2 as of yet. It is all put together but I have yet to record voice actors.

One of the main reasons for this delay is a series of events has occurred in my life that has culminated with an opportunity to make my first feature length film. for the past two months this has been my preoccupation... I should be having some down time in february... so sorry once again but all I can really say at the moment is stay tuned...

I am going to happily volunteer my services as voice actor for this project - assuming you want an Indiana Jones with a vocal register somewhere between Doogie Howser, Season 2 and Pee Wee Herman on helium.

However, I think it's great about the "real life" opportunities that are coming your way. Best of luck!

However, this doesn't give you an excuse to shirk your responsibilities to your audience HERE.

Let's get cracking, shall we?

Indiana Jones and the Rise of the Dead (Part II)

Sorry it took so long and thank you for being patient (lance!).
This was a longer excerpt but I cut it in half so you'd have something to watch now. Here's part 2.

Part three is gonna be killer. Hopefully.

Gonzo, come on!! It's been twenty-five minutes since you posted Part II.


WHERE IS PART III????



Seriously, though, this was sheer delight. I loved every second out of it. Great, great fun.

Two things worthy of special commendation - I think the guy doing the Indy voice is excellent. Not a 100% sound alike (which would be impossible), but definitely capturing the "feel" of the character wonderfully.

Love the Palestine diorama, too.

Minor criticisms:

I would stay away from using actual audio clips of Indy and Sallah themselves. Nothing wrong with a great Wilhelm here and there, but the voice over actors do such a good job that I find it distracting when you insert the "actual" voices.

And secondly, I know that you haven't spent time making custom figures for this project and that's fine. It can be an extremely difficult, costly and frustrating endeavor. However, I would make a very minor suggestion. If it's at all possible simply to cover up with paint or even a magic marker the "JP" jurassic park logo on your main baddie. It's a small touch, but seeing that just takes me out of the story.

Feels silly when watching a movie made from toys, but I really do get into the narrative and the action is fun and exciting. But that tiny detail just rankles me.

Anyway, thanks again SO much for creating this, it is really a blast!

INCROYABLE, Gonzo! I went back and watched Part 1 (again) before watching your #2 mock-up. Haven't seen many action figure movies like this but, it must be said, your efforts are exceptional!

Some shots are a bit too long and could be tightened up...however, overall, this is FREAKING AWESOME!!! So many great moments (too many to list). You are definitely in tune with the Indy pulse of things. Love it A LOT!

Keep it up, mate. You are "bound for glory".

Well I finally wrangled a female voice actor, so finally I can put something out again for you all soon.

Merci Stoo. You my friend are an Indy purest, so anything coming from you is a high compliment.

Would you believe that I am the one doing both Indy and Sallah? It's quite difficult to mimic both yet keep them sounding different cause they're both baritone voices. That's why they sometimes sound so similar.
Hope that didn't ruin the magic/illusion.

And thanks to everyone else for their compliments.
Should have something for you soon.

Bienvenue, mon ami. You deserve the compliments, Gonzo, because within the realm of Indy-action-figure films, your project is the cream of the crop! I cannot wait for the upcoming chapter/s. Bring it on (when you're ready, of course)!

Seriously, folks, anyone who hasn't seen this yet should check it out. Highest level of quality...and no silliness!

I couldn't be more delighted that you summoned the courage to finally talk to a girl.



All kidding aside, this is great news as I LOVE this project. Your vocal talents as Indy and Sallah are terrific, glad to hear the cast is expanding.

Very eager for another chapter. As Stoo said, this project is really "cream of the crop."

Keep up the excellent work!!!

(To reiterate one of my above comments - you do such a great job with the voices that I think you should definitely avoid using any actual audio clips from the films. It shatters the reality you are creating. You do your own skills a disservice!)

Just watched the trailer so far, but it looks epic!

And lol at the Stormtrooper in the background! Nice nod to R2 and 3PO in the Well of Souls

^ Thanks.

I wanted to ask you guys a question. I know some of you like "easter eggs". I have a few coming up. Here is a clip of the biggest one. I'm just wondering if it's too much? The video won't be up for long.

So "too much" or "just fine, it's an action figure film for the love of god."

Keep it in there if you really want to but, in my opinion, it's too much and that "easter egg" should be left on the virtual-cutting-room floor. (A big #94 somewhere would be fun, though.)

Gonzo, don't go down the road that so many other Indy fan works do...

Well, sorry to say, it's over folks...

I had to clean out a lot of my hard drive to make room for a feature film I'm putting together...
Sadly this Toy Indiana Jones project is one of many things that has to go...
I decided to upload the unfinished work print of part 3 for those who kinda wanted to see it.

Sorry I couldn't complete it or a finished series for that matter, but thanks for watching.

Dialogue was never recorded and there happens to be what should have been a dialogue scene so...
If you want to skip to the action go to 1:22.

It's been a long while, thought I'd check back in on this thread. The final "work print" video was "removed" from youtube last year due to "copyrighted music."

However, now it's back on-line, but with the entire audio track "muted" due to the copyright claim!

Still, even without sound, it was AWESOME to see this missing chapter. It's EXTREMELY fun.

I reiterate my insistence that Gonzo finish this epic movie!!!

Come on, Dr. G! Your "excuse" was you needed "hard drive space"?

Pshaw! Get yourself a cheap used back-up hard drive and GET BACK TO WORK!
