SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FILMMAKER

Here at Nerd Eyes Only we’re always looking for cool new content to show you. We like to think of ourselves as promoters of new and interesting talent, in pursuit of which we start our new “Support your local…” series. Here we will highlight new talented individuals and teams we have stumbled across and think you might enjoy.

This week we have the new Short film put together by Hertfordshire based film company Not Twice films and Director Carl Thomason. The Fallen Goat, is a suspenseful horror short shot on a number of visually pleasing local Hertfordshire locations and with a cast headed by Paul Cooper who’s performance binds the whole thing beautifully. The entire film has a feeling of unease spread over it that culminates well in a dramatic final act reveal. While on occasion let down by more amateur actors of the cast it never removes from the overall composition and the potential displayed by Director and crew go along way to suggest even more interesting projects will be on the horizon.

Paul Cooper and Elspeth Mary Jane Dewick look down upon “The Fallen Goat”

The Fallen Goat is exemplified by well distributed long tense silences and it builds tension to a biting point. Paul Coopers performance throughout is solid and brooding creating a character who’s inner torment mirrors the atmosphere of the short perfectly building in tandem to a crescendo. Not to mention his truly exemplary facial hair marking him as the most debonair farmer we’ve ever encountered.

The plot reveals major characters to be quite disturbed individuals and one is left unsure as to whether one should empathise with any of them at all. The feel of the short is once or twice put off kilter by asynchronous injections of humour which have the delightful effect of unnerving the audience. It forces them to laugh and among such disturbing events and this adds to the tone of “wrongness”. This tone is also displayed well by musical cues throughout be it tense, dramatic or unnerving. We also noted on multiple viewings that the shorts ending works a subtle sense of ambiguity into a dramatic third act event making us question whether it took place at all…

 

N2Films Poster Roster

The Fallen Goat is definitely the latest work in a journey for Not Twice Films and Director Carl Thomason. It has a greater degree of polish that some earlier works lacked, that progression of the last 5 or so years where perhaps technical know how limited earlier interesting premises is a joy to see.

If you cannot wait for the release of The Fallen Goat later this year we wholeheartedly recommend checking out some of their earlier works. Particularly Broken Bones A British crime short that explores an anglicized version of principles of honor and the samurai code of Bushido. The enemy, a look into an interview with a serial killer where all is not what it seems, or The Hostage, the story of a man under siege by some surprising aggressors. But if the Fallen Goat has specifically peaked your interest it will be shown by Hitchin films from September onward, and with Applications to over 20+ film festivals worldwide maybe to a place near you. Unfortunately most will have the long wait for Public release sometime next year, but we promise it’s worth the wait. Tense, stark and foreboding The Fallen Goat will have you on the edge of your seat!

#5 Sky Williams

This channel seems to have  taken on a lot of changes lately and as such has left us nothing but curious about the direction it will go. Driven by the charismatic Sky himself and largely League of legends based content, we find ourselves constantly surprised by how we’ve been drawn to this channel. Now the irregularity of the channels content however enjoyable has seen it sit lower on this list than it perhaps might’ve been but we cant wait to see how it develops. Maybe a future winner we’ll wait and see!

Let’s just be honest 2016 was a difficult year to say the least. The angry and some times controversial voice of Jonathan Pie has often struck true with the hearts and minds of people across the world. Primarily Britain-centric his rants and diatribes about the world of politics have you both thinking and laughing in the best of ways!

There are many things that sell a channel to its audience and with Ken its charisma up the wazoo! Our first runner up provides regular gaming content and the odd Vlog or two. However we have to admit Ken is a bit of a marmite creator. Built around his effervescent Personality this is a channel you will either love or hate!

#1 Russel BrandYouTube god trophy

In a year of darkness, more often than not this winning channel was a voice of hope. Now twinned with a podcast “under the skin” where Russel interviews interesting and varied voices across a wide variety of subjects. The trews works well to inform and enthuse, while ultimately his opinions might not always be shared they are always well meaning and well researched. But it is particularly its undying sentiment of hope that has won out this years YouTube god. Thank you Russel and team, in a year where we really needed it you helped us to look forward and see a better future!

RISE MORTALS!

YouTube God 2015

Welcome back, it’s that time of year yet again, time for us to crown a new Deity in the YouTube Pantheon. It’s YouTube God 2015 baby! To those who are still unaware this is the third year of YouTube God, a self titled award given by nerdeyesonly.com to the producer we think has stood out on YouTube over the last year. To date there have been two victors, the first being Mr Jesse Cox, self-proclaimed “dark YouTube god”. The Second, Wil Wheaton and the tabletop team who celebrated their victory only last year. But it is time for their ranks to swell once again as a new god must be named!

This year was yet again a difficult task to elevate just one YouTube producer to Godhood. Many fell by the wayside, so before we get onto our finalists please check out our honourable mention list for this year:

#5 Penny Arcade TV

Making a return to our list after a year fallen from grace is the YouTube arm of the successful web comic Penny Arcade. From creators Mike Krahulik, Jerry Holkins and their team, It’s Penny Arcade TV at number 5. They seeded fourth the first year of our competition and failed to rank at all last year but new and quality programming has brought our attention swinging back. We’ve particularly enjoyed their new show First 15 where Jerry and mike play the “first 15” minutes of a game and comment as only they can. We hope to see more in the coming year and won’t rule out potential victory in next years competition should they build on the success of the last year.

#4 Hot Pepper Gaming

Based on a straightforward concept; eat something very spicy and review a game before your allowed to take a drink, this format was almost destined for success. The ever-changing hosts keep the show fresh and the variety of spicy food/style of game mean that two episodes are never alike. One of the recurring hosts, Jared(Pictured above), makes for particularly entertaining viewing due to his dramatic, charismatic and sometimes surprisingly witty demeanor throughout. Upon the start of each video one can always expect Hilarity to ensue with tidbits of knowledge imparted here and there. We often look forward to videos from this channel with great anticipation.

#3 Awe Me

Our second new entry in the running for YouTube God is the Awe Me channel. With it’s two flagship programs Men At Arms Forged and DIY Prop Shop it is a force of inspiration and ingenuity. You want to know how to craft a golden snitch or watch guys forge a real life Pyramid Head sword to destroy things, this channels got you covered. With excellent production value and genuinely intriguing subject matter this is a great a channel that almost makes up for the time between its content.

#2 Jesse Cox

Again we found ourselves unable to continue without mentioning our very own YouTube “Dark” God. While again he fails by the slimmest margin to claim a second title his channels consistency and quality mean we had to recognise the first inhabitant of Nerdlympus once again in the run down to our victor.

Always a bridesmaid never the bride The Warp Zone made up of Davis, Schroeder, Fish, Odem and Ryan have finally done it they have ascended to a higher plane and taken their places as our new YouTube Gods!

It is the consistency, variety and quality of their content that has finally landed them the victory. Their nerd related parody fun; Lets plays, music parodies, drinking games, Podcasts, Vlogs and comedy skits are always a draw in the YouTube news feed. Will they join Jesse in Darkness or the tabletop team in silence over their rise to divinity we don’t know but we’re curious to find out!

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen to the eagerly awaited results of YouTube God 2014! Finally you will know who has been raised to the status of Godhood and who has fallen by the wayside. For those unaware, this is the second year of results for our annual competition deciding who the best producers on YouTube were, finishing with the presentation of our award YouTube God to the ultimate victor.

JesseAwardRingYouTube dark god trophy

The victor of YouTube God 2013 was Mister Jesse Cox, who eagerly accepted his title with typical Jesse brilliance, via twitter (as seen below). We were also fortunate to meet Jesse at Cox Con 2014 and gift him with his award in person. At which time he instantly “improved/defaced” it with the word “dark”, reaffirming his decision to be the first and most evil deity in the YouTube pantheon!

5. The Warp Zone

warpzone1wapzone2

This year, The Warp Zone is back with all our favourites Davis, Schroeder, Ryan, Fish, and Odom. Unfortunately they’ve slid a bit on our since last year mainly due to less consistent production and more variable quality. But definitely still in the running, they continue to make a host of different, weird and wonderful content from let’s plays, to musical parodies, drinking games, to comedy skits and their occasional vlogging content. We hope to see them again next year, hopefully moving up on our list!

1. Wil Wheaton, Tabletop

Tabletop Banner

The Geek and Sundry channel’s show Tabletop, hosted by Wil Wheaton, has been one of our favourites. If the rest of G&S’s programming had risen to it’s level, the channel itself might have been this year’s winner. However, it is Tabletop and Wil Wheaton specifically, along with the show’s many other producers and crew, that we are honouring this year and raising to the status of Godhood!

Each episode takes a group of new Tabletop Action Shotpeople, some of whom are celebrities (including last years Winner), through a new board game for your viewing pleasure. The show is a mixture of dinner for five and a gaming blow by blow analysis program, similar to those broadcast about sports. The game selection has been superb and the constantly changing guest angle makes for interesting and new dynamics in every show. 

YouTube God AwardAfter Tabletop’s successful crowd funding campaign, they have decided to create a supplementary Roleplaying game show, as yet unfinished, but we feel the same dynamic as the original show would make for engaging viewing. We also very much hope some of our favourites, Call of Cthulhu, Cyberpunk or anything from the White Wolf universe make it in to the final cut!

So congratulations Wil Wheaton and the Tabletop team, will you join Jesse Cox on the darkside or become our first benevolent YouTube God. Whatever the case we wish you the best and pray you keep up the great work!

strip search logo

If your in the mood for more nerdy talent show stuff you can always try the penny arcade comic version, strip search. Available entirely on their YouTube channel here. While living in a large pineapple-themed house, a group of artists are given a series of challenges in each episode ranging from creative to legal to physical, with the winner(s) of each receiving a prize. The winner of the last challenge each day must choose two of the artists to go head-to-head and compete to stay in the game. The chosen must then meet the Penny Arcade creators, Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, and before them they draw two random ideas written on scraps of paper then have to create an original comic strip based on the selected concepts. The winner goes back to the house to continue competing while the loser is eliminated.

Mysterious Musicians and Where to Find Them!

One thing that is genuinely prescribed to be too cool to be nerdy, is music. However as a lover of strange mixes of music and obscure artists, I feel it fits within the purview of our mandate. So here’s just a few different artists that you may or may not have heard of and hopefully you’ll find yourself a cool new favourite.

Outasight

Outasight

Richard Andrew, better known by his stage name Outasight, is an American singer and hip hop artist from New York. Though he is considered a Pop artist, he draws influence from other genres such as hip hop, classic rock and soul. We originally came across him through YouTube.com/RayWilliamJohnson on YouTube, who early on in his vlog series used Outasight’s track, Good Evening (dream Big), as an outro. To give you a feel for Outasight, here’s a music video from his very own YouTube channel: YouTube.com/IAmOutasight.

Amazon Link – Outasight Album – Nights Like These

Jon Huertas

Jon Huertas Castle

You almost definitely know him from the hit Comedy/Crime drama Castle with Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, as Detective Javier Esposito. But you probably don’t know his musical repertoire. Although to this day Huertas has not released a massive amount of music more is coming all the time and going from strength to strength. Here’s a little taste of him from his own Youtube channel, Youtube.com/jonhuertas:

Amazon link – Jon Huertas – Champion

Akala

Akala

Akala, born Kingslee James Daley is an English rapper, poet, and journalist. Originally from Kentish Town,Camden, London, his older sister is rapper/vocalist Ms. Dynamite. Known for his intelligent and thought provoking lyrics as well as being able to knock out a great tune, he has also done a lot of good work within inner city initiatives. Your taster for Akala is probably his most popular song named “Shakespeare” :

Amazon Links – Akala Album – It’s Not A RumourAkala Album – Freedom Lasso & Akala Album – Double Think.

K’s Choice

K's Choice

Actually stumbled upon this natively Belgian band as a single track on the Buffy the vampire slayer soundtrack, called virgin state of mind. From then on I was hooked to the eerie melodies.Here below is the very track that introduced them to me, hopefully you will be equally hooked by it!

All Thanks to YouTube user GraveyardSymphony for this video.

Amazon Link – K’s Choice – Virgin State Of Mind

Ghost of the Robot

Ghost Of The Robot

Another Buffy related find is the band Headed by James Marsters, mostly known as Spike from aforementioned TV show, Ghost of the Robot. Known for their unique rock style music, they are based in Southern California. Here is a live recording of a personal favourite “Goodnight sweet girl” from their Official YouTube /gotrmusic.

Amazon Link – Ghost of the Robot Album – Mad Brilliant

Danilo Alimo

The last on our list of mysterious musicians and where to find them is something quite different. Predominantly just music without lyrics the YouTube user DrastyAlimo plays the guitar and makes some of the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. A large amount of it has been created as fan made versions of songs played and written by the fictional hero Kvothe of Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller chronicle novel series. The best of which is “The Felurians Song” which is embedded below:
