Transcript

{The title for the video appears on a black background. The words "Sample of Style" first appear. Then, the word "TOO!" is added in a rubber stamp style font. Next, the words "The Animationing!" appear below the previous text}

{Video begins to play showing Mike in a red "PACERS" shirt}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Hi {dodges a football thrown at him} I'm Mike Chapman. People are all the time coming up to me on the street and asking me, "Mike, how do you do the animations for your characters on homestarrunner.com?" I tell them...you guys, we're about to go film something with the character Strong Bad being animated and I will show you how to answer your question. Come on! {gestures with his hand}

{Cut to next scene where Matt is wearing a white mask currently flipped up on his head and he is wearing a "motion capture" suit. Behind him is a solid yellow screen}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Alright, we're set.

MATT CHAPMAN: We're ready to go. {As he says this, Matt flips down the mask he is wearing and it appears to be textured like Strong Bad's face} Let's do this. {He begins to wave his arms as the camera zooms out}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Rolling! {pause}} That's good.—

{Cut to scene where Matt and Mike are sitting down holding video game controllers}

MATT CHAPMAN: You know, so a lot of people think it is just straight up flash animation. Which is—

MIKE CHAPMAN: It's a lot more advanced than that.

MATT CHAPMAN: —far from the truth. Far from it.

{Camera cuts. The brothers are facing a dry erase board}

[Missing Dialogue]

{Camera cuts and Matt's face is now obscured by the mask. Mike's back faces the camera}

MATT CHAPMAN: Tell them some more, Mike.

{Matt waves his arms as Mike suddenly turns to face the camera and crosses his arms quickly}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {pointing both hands to Matt} This is our motion capture suit. {Matt gradually lifts up the mask} On it, we have ping pong balls. All the time sending out electronic messages reactive into the air and they bounce off this pretty green wall which is represented and sent to the computer here. {As he is saying this, camera pans to show a laptop computer showing an image of Strong Bad}

{Camera cuts to show a divided screen. On the left, Strong Bad is waving his arms up and down. On the right, we can see Matt waving his arms in an irregular pattern. This lasts for 6 seconds}

{Cut to previous shot with Matt on the left and Mike on the right}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Each ping pong ball represents one spectrum of blue tooth wireless mobility. {As he says this, Matt laughs and bends foward}

{Cut to show Matt close to the laptop}

MATT CHAPMAN: {profoundly} You can talk to the suit, Mike.

MIKE CHAPMAN: Well, {taking a closer look} these ping pong balls {pauses, gesters with his hands} {Matt stares at him at the verge of laughter}

{Cut to show Matt with the mask flipped down. He continues to wave his arms about and then lifts up the mask.}

{Camera cut again to show Matt sitting down and chugging a bottle of a clear liquid}

MIKE CHAPMAN: How did the shooting go today?

MATT CHAPMAN: {drinks more and then lowers bottle} Rough.

{Cut to show yellow screen room. Mike is in front of the camera and Matt is behind him closer to the screen}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {Throws ball at Matt} Hold back.

MATT CHAPMAN: Y-oww! {he yells this as the ball hits his back}

{Cut to show previous shot with Matt sitting down}

MATT CHAPMAN: {puts bottle on table} Overall I think we got some good stuff. We got some good stuff. Strong Bad, ahhhhh {wiggles his fingers disapprovingly} But, you know. Homestar {reaffirming grin}

{Cut to show close up of Mike sitting on a desk with the laptop. The same image of Strong Bad as before is displayed.}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {looking to the right at Matt (offscreen)} Move it up, you just gotta a few more sec- {as he says this, the right arm of Strong Bad's image flickers and then disappears entirely. His left arm continues to move up and down} Woah, hey hey hey.

MATT CHAPMAN: What?

MIKE CHAPMAN: You lost an arm.

MATT CHAPMAN: What?

MIKE CHAPMAN: You lost an arm.

MATT CHAPMAN: {denyingly} No.

MIKE CHAPMAN: One of his arms. {he gets up from the desk} One of the arms came off. {camera pans to the right to show Matt still waving his arms. His face is obscured by the mask}

MATT CHAPMAN: I got it. I got it.

MIKE CHAPMAN: Hey hey. {he taps on the mask}

MATT CHAPMAN: Ahh {letting out a yell} Ahh. I got it.

MIKE CHAPMAN: {lifting up the mask} One of your arms came off. What happened?

MATT CHAPMAN: {streches out his arms and examines them} They look good to me.

MIKE CHAPMAN: Take a closer look. {louder} They don't look good to me.

{Matt studies his left arm and starts to grin}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {grabs the ball nearest to Matt's right hand and holds it up} What is this? What are these? This is the problem right here. {repeatedly hitting two balls together as Matt grins}

{Matt puts his mask down and moments later Mike lifts it up again}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {showing the ball to Matt} These are wiffle golf balls. We need ping pong balls.

MATT CHAPMAN: {pointing to the balls on his suit} these I got-

MIKE CHAPMAN: Table tennis balls.

MATT CHAPMAN: {assuredly} I got ping pong balls.

MIKE CHAPMAN: Yeah, on everywhere else except for this part. That's why his arm disappeared. {holds up several wiffle balls} These things have holes all over them. Looks like a mouse chewed through these things.

{Quick camera cut}

MATT CHAPMAN: Table tennis. What you said.

MIKE CHAPMAN: These are practice golf balls. And so it doesn't go as a far-

MATT CHAPMAN: {interrupts} Guy from the sports place said.

MIKE CHAPMAN: Yeah but these aren't gonna work, though. The guy from the sports place isn't a technological genius like us. And what needs to be done is to make me look like liquid like animation.

MATT CHAPMAN: {rubs his nose} Look, you- {his mask falls down on its own} You want to try on this suit? Hmm? For a day?

{Camera cuts to show Matt sitting on the floor next to the wall}

MATT CHAPMAN: Look. I do what I do because I love this job. That sounds like somebody's a little angry. {awkward pause}

{Cut to scene where Matt and Mike are sitting down holding video game controllers}

MATT CHAPMAN: You know, doing this with my brother.

{Camera cuts to show Matt sitting at the desk with the laptop. He flips the mask down}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Careful {comes over and grabs Matt's shoulder} Get up, that's my chair. Get up, that's my chair.

MATT CHAPMAN: Oww. {he abruptly gets out of the chair}

MIKE CHAPMAN: Get up, that's my chair. Get up, that's my chair. {sits down}

{Cut to show Matt waiving his arms in front of the yellow screen again}

MATT CHAPMAN: Uh yeah, itchy man. Focization. Art of focization itchy man {he continues to move arms about in various poses until he flips down his mask and faces the floor}

MIKE CHAPMAN: {offscreen} Off the form there, ichy mayo. {Matt gets up}

{Cut to earlier scene where Mike is preaching Matt about the wiffle golf balls}

MATT CHAPMAN: I didn't buy those.

MIKE CHAPMAN: I told you to go pick up some lunch and some ping pong balls and some duct tape.

MATT CHAPMAN: I did.

MIKE CHAPMAN: You didn't get lunch. {looks to the balls in his hand} And you got these.

MATT CHAPMAN: {grins and puts arms at his hips} I got me lunch.

{After a short pause, camera cuts to show Ryan Sterritt sitting at a computer when Matt enters the door}

MATT CHAPMAN: Hey.

RYAN STERRITT: {turns his head to face Matt} Yeah?

MATT CHAPMAN: Hey, uh. {whispering} Can I talk to you for a second?

RYAN STERRITT: Yeah, come on in.

MATT CHAPMAN: {approaches Ryan} Uh, remember the other day I, uh, asked you to go get, go get some ping pong balls for the...motion capture suit.

RYAN STERRITT: {nodding head} Yes.

MATT CHAPMAN: Yeah, um, I got in a lot of trouble. {Camera zooms in to clearly show the wiffle golf ball package Matt is holding in his hands} These aren't, these are wiffle golf balls. This one has holes. And I guess that does - we can't get good data.

RYAN STERRITT: The guy at the furniture store said these were ping pong balls.

MATT CHAPMAN: {belittling} The furniture store? You got these... {holds package up} They sell...wiffle golf balls?

RYAN STERRITT: Yes...{moves his head incoherently}

{Matt starts to crack up as the camera cuts to show him in front of the yellow screen. He taps his feet back and forth and then he lowers his mask. Camera cuts again to previous scene in the computer room with Ryan.}
