Update 2017

2017-01-02 09:40:24 by remusyurov

Perhaps I should explain the almost complete absence of original content from my part in 2016 - the short and boring answer is 'real life'.

While I did help out with other people's projects last year, I had to kinda sort out my life. There's no way I can do this thing full-time, so Remuslab is not in my top priority. While I am working on Paper Hotline Miami 2 on and off, other more important things gotta take place sometimes.

Last October I joined a local video studio called Lava Media as an editor/occasional sound operator. While it is the most badass job I've ever had, I got in just in time for the pre-new year frenzy, staying overnight either editing or filming, leaving no time for personal projects. I'm not complaining, and it's nobody's fault, but I still feel awful about not delivering anything for such a long time. But now that I hopefully will have more time now, I will continue working on my projects soon enough.

So the plan for now is simple: finish PHM2 at least this year and see how it goes from there. It's not going to be a huge video and it no way should've taken so long. Sorry!

P.S. Considering I never promote the things I'm actually making for a living now, here's some of the shows I've worked on so far (all in russian whoops)

It's been a while, hasn't it?

I'm working on another installment of the Paper series - this time it's about Hotline Miami 2, a fun for all the family! The original game has so many plots going on (a little too many if you ask me), so in this one I'm focusing on the Fans - a group of masked individuals going for killing sprees on gangs and junkies. While the video on the first game was mostly an experiment with digital paper animation, 3D environments and custom music, this one has more of a cinematic approach, plus having a higher body count and overall brutaluty, if that's your thing.

But when is it coming out? I don't know! I started working on it December 2015, picking away at it whenever possible. I've got literally a million other things going on right now which all need attention, and making paper cartoons was never more than a hobby (a pretty rad one, that is). So instead of jinxing it and telling a release date, I'm just gonna say it will be finished at some point and sorry for the wait!



Boy howdy! Me and my best friend finally made that short live-action series, but I don't think it would be appropriate to post it here, so I've put it on youtube

Here it is, my good pals!


Pre-2016 update extravaganza

2015-12-31 09:21:54 by remusyurov

So this year was pretty good, we finally got the Paper Half-Life saga wrapped up after 5 years of dicking around, and I got to collaborate with some people as well, that’s pretty sweet, isn’t it

After Episode Two I went on a hiatus of some sort, working on other folks’ projects and figuring out a huge project, but now I’m back on working on my own stuff, and I might or might not return to that project in the future (although I sure hope to make something out of it eventually)

Anyway, what can you expect from Remuslab in 2016? Wel, we finally filmed the ending to our short live-action series, and it’s now in post-production, so fingers crossed, it’s gonna be finished in January

There’s also a new paper video on its way (of course), and it’s gonna look a bit different that the usual paper stuff, and I’m real excited for that one, can’t say much else atm though!

And I’m also working on another Anime Amigos by @RyanStorm, specifically animating a part of it, which might be the most ambitious piece of work I have ever done thus far

So that’s it for now, I hope to produce more stuff in 2016 than usual, and I thank all my followers and fans for staying with me over the years, as well as the new folks! Anyway, I’m going to go to my friend’s and make some goddamned white russians and meet the new year like the good boys we are

Right, cya!



Hi! If you would like to take a look at the backgroounds I did for those two videos, I've compiled them all in one lil zip archive (including one secret background from a discarded scene), which you can get here https://www.dropbox.com/s/1m330xdws3fo9oj/PHLEPISODESBGRS.zip?dl=0

Hello, I've been working for the past few months on this stop-motion style cartoon about Freeman and his friends' wacky adventures, and I'm so giddy about what I want to show that I've cobbled together this lil teaser trailer, so look forward to that probably!

And you can also watch the Episode One vid on this very website
