Here's a short and simple animated intro I made for my YouTube channel.
I was thinking this would also be good to use when showing backyard theater movies. It would be like having your own little drive-in.
It wasn't too hard to make. I used two different images for my MV logo. The first is a dull red and the second is a brighter red with a glowing effect, all of which I created in CorelDraw. I added some sound effects; a switch sound and a running film projector.
I used Windows Movie Maker to animate the whole video. The film flicker and the special effects transition were achieved using some of its features.
If you want more specific details or instructions on how to create one of your own animated intros, leave me a comment.

|Wanted For Hair Fondling|
Recently I noticed some similarities between two such characters; Torgo from Manos: The Hands of Fate and Hanson from Scary Movie 2.
Both Torgo (John Reynolds) and Hanson (Chris Elliott) have wandering hands and seem to have an affinity for awkwardly stroking the hair of their attractive female guests. Their actions are so similar, it makes me wonder if it's too much of a coincidence. Perhaps the director or writer of Scary Movie 2 was a fan of Torgo and the character of Hanson was a tribute to him. The only difference is one was meant to be a horror film and the other a comedy although you could argue that Manos was an unintentional comedy.
Which woman handles the situation better? Is it Margaret (Diane Mahree) with her delayed reaction and face slap or is it Cindy (Anna Farris) with her nervous and horrified reaction?
Which caretaker creeps you out more?

In 1985, Weird Paul created a homemade horror movie called The Killer Hula Hoop which he himself described as the worst horror movie of all time.
In 2010, a horror movie about a killer rubber tire was released with many viewers claiming it to be one of the worst horror movies of all time. You can see the similarities between the two movies, can't you?
Could it be possible that Quentin Dupieux's Rubber was actually inspired by The Killer Hula Hoop? Watch the trailer and decide for yourselves.

Technically, the movie Manos: The Hands of Fate is a severely flawed film. It was shot poorly, directed poorly, dubbed poorly and edited poorly. I don't think anyone will argue with that.
One thing that was done right is the closing song, called, Forgetting You, a hauntingly beautiful jazz piece written by Russ Huddleston & Robert Smith, Jr. The original female singer with the silky voice, remains a mystery.
However, Jennifer Fujimori has recorded a cover version of the song and the result is quite enjoyable. Helping out on piano, guitar, drums and bass is Cory Fujimori who is also the engineer.
Compare Jennifer's version to the original one.
