Home movie #4 consists of about 900 photos from our day at Disneyland on NYE. It was a great day. The weather was perfect, the crowds were amusing, and the excitement was all around us. As we anxiously waited for midnight to strike we took full advantage of all the rides the park had to offer. I even got us a seat at the romantic Blue Bayou restaurant that is inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. woot! When the fireworks came the fog had already taken over the sky, causing the light to spread and the sky to turn every color imaginable. It was incredible.
Another Home Movie for the future. Take a look. I tried a few more editing techniques on this one. I hope it you like it. It mainly focuses on A bit of our fun in San Francisco, my job at Idle Games and my friends there.
This was made using my iphone 4 and Final Cut Pro X. Thanks for watching.

Well, Yesterday makes 2 years with Idle Games. I’m happy to be here, working with a great team. I was telling my dad over the weekend that it’s a place where i feel privileged to work. So to everyone at Idle who see’s this - Thank you for the great experiences over the last 2 years. Let’s get this game launched. :) @idlegames
Hey Guys, Some of you may know that I went to Montreal to speak at the Montreal International Games Summet (MIGS). While I was there I gave a presentation on how we at Idle Games use Toon Boom’s Harmony animation software as a tool to bring our game, Idle Worship, to life.
SO here it is. Most of the presentation. It shows a lot of behind the scenes and video and footage of animations that are in the game and in even a bit of in progress animation. Take a look, see the game, hear me speak, and enjoy.
If time could tell us something about us that we don’t know, what would it say? Who knows? I sure don’t. But is it even something I want to find out? Actually, yes, I would like to know more about myself. And I would like for others to know more about me too. More specifically, my close family and friends, and even more specifically maybe some future little people of my own.
So what I decided to do was create series of home videos. Home videos like the ones that my dad used to make with his big camcorder. My dads videos became more than just the sum of their parts. They are more than plastic VHS tapes and more than just a family. Those home videos are golden. Like Steve Jobs said, “you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.” These are golden dots in time, that I or my kids will open up years down the road and look at how far we’ve all come. We will be able to connect the dots and hopefully find some truly amazing things within ourselves.
This project is a sort of never ending one. But one that can come to mean more and more as time goes on. This project will come to show who I am and who I want to be, and even who I have grown to not be. These videos tell no story but are edited with a song in a fairly abstract way. Just me, my iphone 4, and life. Come on this ride and take a look at my first home movie.
Here is what I have been animating on for the past 2 years. We are making the best new game for Facebook. We have come a long way as a team and as a company. It is an amazing feeling to be able to share this with you guys. I’ll give you more updates very soon. Check out my other Idle Games inspired Video at Fabianmolina.com
