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 - www.patreon.com/joelhaver

    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

  2. ArcaneGinger

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

  3. Janie Wang

    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?

  4. skippygirl959

    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

  5. KodaPop

    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

  8. The BF

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

  9. Wilbur Cobb

    i appreciate u for this

  10. Eric Swanson

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

  11. Morgan Kosokowsky

  17. Whiite

    TRUUU dude

  18. Squeakers

    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 😂

  19. Rasclat

    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!

    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.

  31. Dean Murray

    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.

  32. Blend Hypothesis

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

  33. Kevin Mathewson

    Whatup Jeffrey.

  34. Wesley Cole

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

  35. Erik Suwandy

    Mando reunited with Grogu

  36. Tinkuwu

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

  37. Astroxy

    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

  38. Sümeyye Kyoto Terzi

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

  39. Powdered-Toast Man

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

  40. jothain

    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.

  41. Astroxy

    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

  42. Astroxy

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

  43. Sümeyye Kyoto Terzi

    i like your lady hands, lady

    I am here because of jester jones

  45. Pieter Rossouw

    This is a masterpiece.

  46. Jonathan Campbell

    Is this AI/ML generated drawing? 🤔

  47. Anthony

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

  48. Andrew Pang

    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?"

  49. Waleed Khalid

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

  50. Commander Rainbow Ducky

    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.

  52. BluFox HeartFire

    Something is wrong, he doesn’t say huzzah

  53. Vincent Verschuren

    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.

  54. NosadDOG

    Man, You are a good man!

  55. leo saunders

    soooo a scanner darkly?

  56. Wade Wilson

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

  57. Nick Xx

    Must of been my imagination

  58. Alexander Rodriguez

    You’re a legend dude

  59. Nick Xx

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

  60. ThePaintingBanjo

    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.

  61. Michael Stevenson

    Ah, the plight of a drummer.

  62. GrimSyx

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

  63. Resistance Publishing Group

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

  64. ItsFrenzius

    But would this work on Hitfilm?

  65. Michael Leide

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

  66. Robo Cop

    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!!!!

  67. Day Man

    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.

  68. GeckoGC

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

  69. Robert Griffith

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

  70. Arechi320

    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.

  71. Marko Miljevic

    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!

  72. GeckoGC

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

  73. Italia Perez

    This video is underrated

  74. Simcity Jayplay

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

  75. TheHybridTheory

    God these faces are unnerving but so unique

  76. michael scoggins

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

  77. Łuaksz

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

  78. Haternet

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