Albatross: 10 Year Anniversary of the 1 Year Anniversary Edition

holy smokes! 11 years ago we started MissilePuppy… and haven’t done a heck of a lot with it. That’s life I guess. We did make this absolutely stupid short film around launch time. Unfortunately my camera at the time was one of those little standard def mini DV magnetic tape things (that made a horrible constant whining sound when it was filming) and my video editing software at the time compressed everything to hell.

BUT low and behold, Topaz Labs just released to beta version of a machine-learning program to increase the resolution on low-rez video. This is the AI-Uprezzed version of the original movie. I think it helped clean up the compression a bit, but it didn’t add a lot of detail. I haven’t made the video publicly available yet on our channel as I hear Topaz might have a new algorithm soon geared towards REALLY low quality crap like this, so I may end up running it though again.

Here’s to the next 11 years of not doing much!

New short! Tronne’s Dilemma 2: Political Flyers

It’s been a while since we made a new video, hasn’t it?

Well we’re back! It’s a short one, but it’s a sweet one. Tronne’s Dilemma 2: Political Flyers finds Tronne eager to respond to a political flyer left in his mailbox. That is, before his entire world comes CRASHING DOWN.
