Mario vs Luigi: Sibling Rivalry!!!

Years ago two brothers became heroes. As time went on one began soar in popularity to become one of the most iconic characters in video games ever. The other brother watched and waited as the shadow he stood in grew and grew….

Then this happened.

You’re welcome! For more awesome videos like this subscribe to EMC Revolution on YouTube and don’t forget to share and comment!!

Who is your favorite brother?

OH YEEEEAAAAAHHH!!!

Recently some friends of mine unearthed a rare never before seen Kool-Aid commercial from the early 90’s. Apparently I was in this one with Tony Sre and Sam-oan.

I’m pretty sure this aired somewhere between Ninja Turtles and Tiny Toons.

What’s your favorite 90’s cartoon?

What’s your favorite colorful refreshment?

Watermelon is delicious.

Bourne Movies are Confusing

Alright. I confess I haven’t seen the latest Jeremy Renner version but I have seen the Damon trilogy. American fight choreo seems to go something like this:

 
Fight Coordinator: Ok, I’m going to have you do do some really close quarters combat fighting. Very fast and direct.

Director: Great, I’ll tell the Camera Operator to prepare for his seizure.

Damon: So what do you want me to do?

Fight Coordinator: Oh it’s really easy, just stay close to these stunt men, flail around aimlessly, make some fighting grunts and they’ll take care of the rest.

Director: Ok are we ready to roll on this?

(The Camera Operator is spining in circles with his forehead on a bat.)

Camera Operator: 49… 50. Ok. Uh…. whoa…. Rolling!

Director: ACTION!

Everyone: ….

Well, instead of the usual EMC fighting prowess this week the monkeys decided to take a page from Hollywood and try their hand at an American (chuckle) fight scene. There’s no way not to enjoy this because whether the fight works or doesn’t work, it still works.

So tell me,

Is this Hollywood enough for you?

They do it monkey style.

The Oatmeal Man is Coming

So did you know I was in a movie? Well, I was. The Oatmeal Man is a hilarious flick about a group of friends who happen upon an unspeakable terror. It’s got laughs, buddies, girls, breakfast, and a gooey monster!! What more could you ask for? Take a look at the new trailer if you don’t believe me.

What do you think?

We’re Taking Stop Motion Back

So the last time you thought you saw some awesome stop motion was one of the following:

1. Badass Ray Harryhausen monsters.

2. The OG King Kong.

3. The EPIC Rebel Defeat at the Battle of Hoth

But if you don’t know what a VHS is you might not be familiar with the ancient art of stop motion.

A relic of a forgotten age

You probably think the scene in Empire is just some old school CG or something stupid. Well guess what? IT’S NOT!! Someone built some badass AT-ATs and Tauntauns, shot them one frame at a time and painstakingly moved them through their actions!! (I’m guessing the current instant gratification generation is thinking “What does painstakingly mean?”) What if someone thought to do an AWESOME fight with stop motion. Someone with fighting skills. Someone who could actually do a cool fight instead of most of the stop motion crap adrift in the sea of mediocrity that is YouTube. Someone like… the EMC Monkeys. Well, then you might end up something you could enjoy watching! So here it is

…. enjoy watching!

Learn well young ones. Stop motion can be a thing of beauty… or hilarity.

So….

What’s your favorite stop motion moment?

The Battle of Hoth!!!!

Rest in Peace Ken Garcia

Yesterday the world lost a wonderful man by the name of Ken Garcia. You may recognize him from any number of his TV or movie appearances, you might know him from his Krav Maga classes, or maybe you have taken a few acting classes from his studio. I had the distinct pleasure of working with him on a number of projects and his work always impressed me. The first time I met him was in 2007 on the Wasteland production location. We rode in the bed of a truck doing 60 through the desert terrain then joked for a while about how close each bump got us more and more nervous about the lack of seat belts in truck beds. His great sense of humor and punctuality made sure that we had plenty more opportunities to catch up for every meeting, table-read, audition, or shoot day that I saw him at because we were usually the only ones there on time. I scored 2 movies that he was in and his performances never ceased to amaze and inspire me. I read with him at the Urgency audition that I felt he crushed and was then disappointed when the studio cast the part themselves. I listened every time his lines came up at a table read to hear how the lines carried weight with only the sound of his voice. He always offered to buy me a drink whenever we were at any outing. The last time I saw him was at the Wasteland DVD signing where we spent most of our time joking and laughing with each other.  Well in case you’re listening KG:

Yup, that’s us in the background.

This is the only pic I could find of us together. Oddly enough I think this was the last time I saw you. As punctual people we spent a lot of time chilling before everyone else got there. It was great to know you as an inspiration, teacher, peer, and most importantly as a friend. You never let anything stand in your way and accomplished more than most people ever will. Your talent, skill, ambition, determination, and hunger for life was something we could all learn from. I already miss you and can’t wait to hang and chat it up again… while we wait for everyone else. All my condolences to everyone else whose lives you touched. I know they all miss you as much as I do.

I scored this for your scene in Wasteland and I think it is a beautiful song for a great performance. Have a listen and we all miss you.

EMC goes Flashpoint Style

If you’re at all a fan of martial art movies then you are probably aware of Donnie Yen’s work. One of his more recent movies (besides the awesomer than awesome Ip Man) is Flashpoint where he uses a very interesting amount of MMA in his choreography. Well, guess what. Malay and Tony can do MMA too. So here they are punching each other to wonderful music (by your truly!).

In addition to the awesome videos that EMC Revolution put up each week there’s also a channel the guys have been working on called the Urban Ninja Academy that has videos of the guys skill and sometimes tutorials so you can be a ninja too! Be sure to subscribe to that too!!
