Check it out! Mike Milo has a blog going for his new film, Flavio on the Frederator site for Nickelodeon’s “Oh Yeah! Cartoons”. Stop by and check it out here. Be sure to check out the artwork Mike has been doing for his cartoon, and keep up on the progress of the film. Also, don’t forget to drop him a comment from time to time!
A huge thanks to all my family members and friends who have informed me they did actually go and buy a copy of the American Dad DVD! I hope I didn’t come across as too demanding, but I am hoping this DVD sells well and helps convince Fox to keep it on the air for many seasons to come (and keep me in a day job!) It’s a gig I love, and a show I really enjoy working on.
Once again, thanks all! Mom and Dad, you both especially!
There’s now a website for “Hot Mexican Love Comics” located here. The site contains information on where to buy the book, and lots of info and links. Stop by and give a shout out to the publishers/creators!
Mike's been working on a video for the PHMA- (Protective Headgear Manufacturers' Association) a voluntary, not-for-profit organization of manufacturers of headgear for non-motorized sports.
It's an 8 minute short film, all animated with Flash, and so far it looks really nice! I've been working on the music soundtrack for it lately. Here's a screen shot taken straight out of my editing session using Sonic Foundry's Vegas:
A few more screen caps from the film:
I spent a very productive weekend finishing up the music soundtrack for a short educational film on helmet safety that Mike Milo is producing for a client of Milowerx Animation Studios. The film looks really sharp, now hopefully it’ll sound really sharp as well! It features flash animation by Mike Milo and backgrounds by Jason McAuthur. The main character is voiced by one of Mike’s very talented daughters, Melissa. Creative talent very much runs in the Milo family!
For sound and video work, I love the applications originally created by Sonic Foundry (now under ownership of Sony Media Software) such as Sound Forge, Acid, and Vegas Video. I still use the last-gen Sonic Foundry versions of each application, as I just haven’t warmed up to the Sony versions yet.
Aside from soundtrack work, I also managed a bit of writing this weekend, and finalizing my first western novel, Badhat for press after an unfortunate delay.

…got a copy of “Hot Mexican Love” in my hands today. All I can say is, wow! The book really looks great! The print quality is top-notch! The layout and design is fantastic! All the artwork, from cover to cover looks great- a lot of it is truly amazing. And I’m really relieved that the Bunny Brothers story Mike and I did came out good as well- it certainly fits in with the rest of the book.
I just got to see a sample issue from the co-publisher who works with me at Fox, but I’m just so pleased I finally got to see it. Can’t wait to get my actual copies of the book.
By all accounts, the APE Con went extremely well for the publisher, who sold 80 copies or so of the book. Not bad numbers a’tall!
A cool bit of trivia- today, April 5th, 2006 time will line up in complete numeric order at 3 seconds past 1:03pm. Doubtful I’ll be starring at my watch at just the right moment to see this historic second tick past, but what the hey.
