  I'd like to submit my three Blockland videos for this, review them hard... I can handle a bit of feedback.

Video 1 - Beowulf An epic tale about a man in search for adventure [Blockland Machinima]
https://youtu.be/sSrh6It3gV4
==This was my submission to an assignment given to me at school to re-tell the epic poem, Beowulf.  Since it was my first real attempt at machinima, there are bits I could've done better, such as having characters do the talking animation or close-ups when the designated character is speaking.  Also, the whole thing appears rushed, and the "sets" are small, to say the least.  You see, I kind of was on a deadline to premiere this to my class so of course, it has its flaws.  But not bad for my first machinima.

Video 2 - Element Animation's Rules of Animating Part 2 in Blockland
https://youtu.be/6r1-HncdoXA
==YouTube is known for a content creator posting something and having someone else do the exact same thing in machinima form, that was how this video came to be.  Element Animation creates 3D animated Minecraft videos, and I enjoyed their Rules of Animating series.  I stayed true to the original video as much as possible, while adding in a bit of Blockland humor.

Video 3 - Super Joseph 64 (Filipe1020's The Red Treasure Chest Entry)
https://youtu.be/rCWDqOpBpJ8
==Possiblely the hardest I've worked on a Blockland Machinima in my entire YouTube career, I mean have you seen that near-perfect remake of Peach's Castle?!  Aside from the amazing castle set, I made use of film bots for the first time and even incorporated a 2.40:1 filming ratio when shooting the ending cutscene from Super Mario 64.  The only thing I'm not pleased with is the bulky shaders (this was filmed when an Nvidia driver broke shaders in Blockland) and the poor insert of Badspot after the laser particles restores power to the castle.

I just thought of this but if you wanna ever do like, a special long episode, or however you want to do it if at all, I would always be willing to come on the show and review all of the old BEE and Block Wars stuff or really any of the stuff I was apart of back in the day.

I have an unfortunately extensive history of blockland machinima and no one to share it with (other than when Packer and I get bored and start reminiscing).

Or, if it's a conflict of interest to review stuff I was a part of, I have other blockland shorts and things I remember from back in the day I'd love to talk about.

I support that 100%, Swholli deserves a special episode.

Thank you for the interest everyone, I was gone on vacation and just got back to see everyone's feedback.

To Swholli - I'd love to have you on as soon as you're available. If you want to review one of your own films such as AAW or BW, fine by me. I would think to divide a review of either of those into multiple episodes with different reviewers, just to fit in as many perspectives as possible. Let me know what you think.

To Blockteen - Thank you for the video suggestions. I'll pitch these to my next reviewer.

And, thank you Biqus.

I'm pretty sure we are in a discord server or two together, I will send you a DM on there.
