Mutton Scraps

Mutton Scraps are videos of test footage, old unused video, and other such things. They largely exist to because youtube demands frequent uploads, but also because there’s some neat stuff we have to show that isn’t full video material.

Mutton Scraps – Benraged


Benraged is another short bit that was supposed to be attached to a longer video we never ended up producing. It was a contest where we tried to eat all the ingredients to make a pie, but without combining them. It was gross.

Apologies for the 4:3 standard definition. This is pretty old footage from when HD cameras cost thousands of dollars and I was still resisting the 16:9 format.

Mutton Scraps – Donkey Kong vs. Bowser


Better late than never.
Donkey Kong battles Bowser, the King of Koopas, in a non Smash Bros setting.

This was originally my part for a collab on Newgrounds that was never finished. The coordinator dropped out and left me in charge, but I wasn’t any better at getting people to finish their stuff, so it never came out. The theme was Heroes of Nintendo, and it was the late two thousands.

Resurrecting it, I made also the sound effects myself and added music that’s much more epic than said sound effects. I’m not sure if it works or not.

Mutton Scraps: Three Guys on a Couch


Test video for multiple characters played by the same actor. Had to do a lot of time remapping and such because I pretty much winged this one. It’s actually got a bit of structure though.

Sorry about two Mutton Scraps in a row. I picked one of the more entertaining ones this time. Still having scheduling issues because of summer. I’m trying to get some more solo content going to fill in the gaps.

Mutton Scraps: This Is The News


The very first thing I did with a human being on a green screen (actually four green posterboards taped together) and it’s a fake news thingy because why not? ┬áDidn’t put to much effort into the performance or “script,” but my facebook friends got a kick out of it. Learned a bit about green screening, I was much too close to the screen. It was also really hot when I shot this, and keeping that jacket on was a chore. Yes, I wasn’t wearing pants.

Mutton Scraps: Dude, Where’s Your Mom?


This one was originally made for the old Newgrounds bytesize. Which was a little player on NG’s front page that would run a bunch of really short cartoons. I couldn’t come up with a contribution for the longest time (ended up remaking a very old bit that was hidden away inside a game) so when I finally did submit my part, they discontinued the bytesize a few weeks later.

Mutton Scraps: Light Saber Test


One of the first things I had to do when I got professional grade video software, was go out and do up some light saber action. Unfortunately, I had left the shutter speed on my camera much too low resulting in doubled frames. But the second time, I made sweet light sabery action.

Also changed the Mutton Scraps thumbnails. It looks weird embedded, but on youtube they’re oddly narrow and it makes them stand out.
