I am Joel!\n\nI am a filmmaker! I make shorts and features and post them all on this channel!\n\nTHE PROMISE:\nIf you make a movie (a feature length film, 40+ minutes) and send it to me, I will watch it. \n\nMaking movies is so possible nowadays, all my features cost anywhere from $0-$500. I see my promise to watch people's movies as a nice form of encouragement. There are so many systems and roadblocks (and lies) in place that keep us unambitious and apathetic in the medium, and I hope the promise that a filmmaker will watch and care about your hard work can be that little push some may need to create something bigger.\n\nI also encourage people to make short films and lots of them! Short films are great grounds for fun and experimentation, and you get better and better at filmmaking every time you make a short. Because shorts are so much easier to make, I can't promise to watch everyone's shorts.\n\nConsider supporting my work on Patreon -

  • The truest tutorial out there. Really tells you how much of a headache it is to this.

  • Poor Tomasz :(

  • Who is ethan?

  • When the bounty hunter has a comfortable standard of living so he only takes jobs when he's running low on funds

  • Hey big guy

  • Oh oops, I'm not supposed to see this.

  • powerful message at the end there. going to make pornos with this ty

  • This is some meta behind-the-scenes content

  • So he was just like, always funny?? Wtf

  • Thank you for this! I was wondering if you used some sort of facial recognition software to generate frames from key frames, and it turned out to be mostly right. I love your style, its like the most awkward fever dream. Like the awkwardness of a Tim and Eric skit mixed with the existential dread of a Jack Stauber short. I hope others can use this technique too. It has a lot of potential.

  • In my 13 years of video production, this is the most entertaining tutorial I've ever seen.

  • Thanks now im homesick. Missing da quabbin

  • Fascinating!

  • This is so awesome!!!

  • We love you too, Joel! Keep creating ❤

  • "a heath bar doesn't show a enemy to you to shows a enemy to them self's" a very deep saying "then oh fuck"

  • Just discovered your channel and I want to say sorry for your loss man, I lost my dad in 2007 to cancer so I know that effect on everyone involved. I see this is a year old but I just wanted to offer my condolences to you.

  • Bringing joy and learnin to all, you rock Joel

  • Is this a fucking Dr. Phil

  • one day in the future this will be like "where anime 2 all began" and people will come see the comments

  • I have the same freaking keyboard G510 gang unit!

  • In the “Girls” dating video the girl’s date dodges telling the story behind the Happy New Year hat... this is such a weirdly satisfying payoff

  • Hello Just Animated Joel.

  • Watching this was like a weird ego death. Seriously it was psychedelic and type of learning.

  • The end was such a rad message, thank you

  • Ah yes, our lord and savior Joel Haver has given us more content and advice. Very appreciated, much knowledge.

  • Dark side of the moon does line up with the Wizard of OZ, press play after the second lion roar.

  • I'm so happy you're getting the recognition you deserve! keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to enjoying more content from you in the future <3

  • "An animated Just Joel"

  • This is friggin sick! Great job! (and what an addictive voice, lol)

  • I am really happy that I'm subbed to this channel

  • Have you ever thought about using motion capture instead? I think it'd be far easier and allow more physical motion than just small facial movements 🤔

  • Did you watch 'The Liberator' on Netflix? It's art style reminds me of yours!

  • Uncultured Me: It can’t be that hard. Cultured Me: It is extremely hard.

  • You are a truly prolific creator and I'm so glad to see you finally getting your big break. I love your live action and animated stuff. Not only was this video informative, but hilarious and insightful. Seeing your Patreon credits be so long makes me so happy. Can't wait for more ✨

  • keep it up man

  • As someone who is learning to edit on Premiere Pro, this is really Inspiring, Thanks Man :D

  • ngl i was curious as to why the animations looked so funny. its because there's no blinking and no closing of mouths 😆

  • EBSynth? Oh word, imma have to look that up

  • This is work. This is quality. THIS IS CONTENT.

  • I had started a small project on flipaclip phone app just for fun like a week ago, thanks so much for sharing!

  • And he still keeps things relatively comical throughout the video

  • What a guy

  • You're a good egg Joel

  • 1:35 Old man: “A healthbar does not show who is an enemy to you, it shows who is an enemy to themselves.” Marshal: “Oh F#%€...”

  • half a million *plus one* today homie.

  • Very few people would reveal their editing process, let alone on their main channel. Good on you for not hoarding secrets, love your work.

  • Better than Rise of Skywalker

  • My bestie and I are both bi girls, and we once discussed our ideal woman. After a little thought, we both realized that we wanted to date ourselves, but with bigger boobs. (In case that's confusing: I would date someone like myself, and she would date someone like herself.) Ironically, I went on to date a girl who is pretty much like me, but with smaller boobs. She's wonderful. 😊

  • "Art should be in the hands of everyone and we shouldn't have to break out backs and our wallets and waste our lives to make it..." *Slowly looks over to his bookshelf full of 40k models.*

  • love u 2 man

  • I wish all tutorials were on this level

  • Seeing the transition from your last recording interaction with your Father to the scene with him in the casket hit me with a lot of realizations. My mother is in her 2nd cancer recurrence, and I am in another country separated by the ocean. Around the same time I found out, I broke up with my girlfriend of a few years, since we live together, it's been very difficult for me, and I feel more lonely than I ever have in my whole life. My body has been reacting strangely to the new bundle of stresses that have popped up and I'm in my head more than I would usually, so watching you think in between the conversations and scenes really helped me see some relation and find a connection. I had a short date like one of these this past summer after I broke up with my girlfriend, but we ended up making out a lot sooner and we kind of rushed things fast as my feelings for her grew at a rapid pace... only for me to find that she just wanted to mess around and run. I had that and my long term breakup weighing on me since, and I've been unable to feel any connection like it since. Your production volume is great, and your quality is even better. Believe it or not, I didn't even realize you were the other guy making rotoscoped animations for the past two or three months I've been watching your videos. I have a lot of dreams and visions of art that I want to create, so I think I will use your work as an inspiration to begin.

  • Wow, it's not acting but your natural way of talking? And that voice!

  • Me, watching this knowing I'll probably never do any of this: Cool

  • I didn't know I needed to cry, but you sure showed me. Thank you so much for sharing this. Joel, I sincerely wish you all the best in the world. I have been binge watching your videos since I found your channel, and I never expected to come across something like this. I can feel that progression you only find when someone has put every handful they can scoop from their soul into their art. As a fellow artist, you give me so much inspiration seeing how far you have come in developing your craft, your personal form, and your skills. You have made me laugh so much, and now you have helped me cry, and I'm grateful for that. This movie is beauty and tragedy, hand in hand. I almost wish I had seen it sooner, but I think I needed to see it now. It feels like a privilege peering into your mind and witnessing such raw emotion. Again, thank you, and I look forward to seeing more of what you have yet to create.

  • unga bunga

  • Dude this is awesome I've always wondered how you make these

  • While we may be able to copy the way in which you make these, we can never copy your style

  • We love a humble king

  • This inspire me so funking much! Thank you dude

  • I really don't know what to say to express how this made me feel. I just have so much appreciation for you and this work of art. Seeing how you interact, seemingly so genuinely with the people In the film gave me this pang of nostalgia and longing for a past which I have never truely had, and which seems to have been fabricated in my mind more than anything else. The process of dating, meeting someone new, the nervous excitement, growing ever closer, but in some ways too perfect and unrealistic, like a dream. Then coupling that with that coming back to earth moment. The realization of the loneliness brought me way back into my past and memories of my own. In so many ways I can vividly see myself in you, and this life that you bring onto this screen. And that is what I think makes this so special. Those moments of quiet that you spend on the screen on your own. Your emotions are vivid and can nearly be seen on the screen as well. This for me is what an aching heart feels like. full of love waiting to be shared, full of pain needing to be shared, but not really having anyone to go or to share it with Who knew that watching a silly RPG animation video would lead me to this. Thank you Joel for all of this good good stuff. I am so impressed by all your work.

  • This is really cool. I'd love to see if AI could improve or outright automate the entire process.

  • Actually, I kinda like the glitches in the software. Combined with the vhs effect, gives your work this kind of experimental janky tone that just adds to the sketchy experimental nature of improv.

  • I’m blown away by your generosity and support of creators. It seems so rare that an artist on the internet would go out of their way to bring other people into the fold, especially after gaining a (much deserved) following like you have. I think you’re going to be extremely influential to new youtubers in the next few years if this subscriber ball keeps rolling for you and I’m glad that It’s happening for someone who genuinely cares about art and creativity. Thanks so much Joel.

  • HUZZAH!!!!

  • I love the awkwardness of your videos, thank you for sharing this, now i can create worse and worse content everyday <3 love from Brazil

  • Oblivion flashbacks... Those were the days...

  • Me: How do you make this Joel: This is how Me: So Greek that will take days to complete? I see.

  • Thank you

  • Gave it a little try today and it looks really cool. Thanks for the video

  • So that's how he makes animations with such life and a little juj-juju, blublu, flufluuu~ go to 4:40 if u really had no soul to get it

  • All i can really say is wow. This didn't even feel like a film. I felt like I was simply sitting in a few feet away from you watching all of these event unfold. I have a very close relationship to my father and watched your video of you telling your audience that he had passed. My condolences. I can feel the pain and joy that flows through this film in my very bones. It honestly fucked me up a bit. I can feel the raw humanity in this film and I love it. I can't thank you enough for this once in a lifetime experience Joel. I will now and forever be a fan. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

  • You're really amazing bro! Thanks so much!

  • I'm interested

  • Giving away your secrets? I will absorb your power!

  • So romantic.

  • Petition to call these forms of animated videos Haver animations?

  • Gee, I never thought it would take so long just to do 1 video in this way...
