- Rick Jones 2
was a Machinima Group started called p1mp slap
productions. Founded by Bryan Henderson and Michael
Weatherton, PSP started their first film, Rick Jones: Master
Detective. Featuring Rick Jones,
Zeus, P1mp, and Jason; Rick Jones: MD ran a strong 11 minutes
and revolved around an action\comedy theme.
The two founders began creating the
movie themselves. Along with a other non-members who
helped minorly in it's creation (and deserted them
mid-stage), Henderson and Weatherton completed RJ1 and
released it on 02\16\99. The main
horror character from the hollywood movies) escapes from jail
and goes on a murder spree, and its up to Rick Jones and his
swanky side kick, Zeus to stop him."
The film, although
widely excepted as 'funny' and 'cool', was not adopted by any
main-stream media but was definately in deservance of much
credit to it's two creators.
Now in the year
productions has patched a Late January release date on their all
new Rick Jones 2. RJ2 co-creator Weatherton says,
"Rick Jones is just a 70's cop; he does the law with
style"and he's accompanied once again by Zeus, P1mp (who is
a real pimp), and an all new rival, Maffia Man, leader of the
evil crime syndicate that intends to hustle the town for every
penny its worth. Weathorton describes the
support characters in his own way. Zeus he says "is
Rick's swanky side-kick, he's like Shaft." and P1mp as,
"a pimp with some hoes." Maffia man is obviously
the villian, and the hoes? Well, heck, we'll meet them in the
RJ2's info has been relatively
clear. There are file size estimations (20 megs), length
estimates (20 minutes), and release date guesses (January), a
poster (above), a flash trailer (here),
and of course, the info coming to you fresh and clean here from
the creators themselves.
Bryan (Crustar)Henderson fills us in
with some of the info on RJ2, the storyline is definately all
<CrustaR> Our hero, Rick Jones
Master Detective finds & busts a drug warehouse
& the Maffia Guy gets pissed.
<Tritin|Wreck> So now the maffia guy is taking the
town for all it's money?
<CrustaR> yup =)
<CrustaR> jones gets pissed off and goes after him
<CrustaR> and mafia man will stop at nothing to succeed
<CrustaR> sorry, inside movie joke =)
<Tritin|Wreck> So we have a bust, a ticked off gansta who
then takes the town for it's value, Jones goes after him and
it's all hiades from there on?
<CrustaR> it will have some of the classic cop stuff
<Tritin|Wreck> How many new models and animations are in
<CrustaR> oh god
<CrustaR> I have about 55 model directories
<CrustaR> but a lot of them are duplicate models
<CrustaR> ~20 new models
<CrustaR> over 10,000 new frames of animation
From his above statements it looks like
RJ2 will have a record breaking high in custom models and
animations. Hopefully we'll see PSP hit the mainstream media
yet. We're expecting a rough match between several of the
other films coming from different machinima groups, and this one
looks like it'll be killer for hot action scenes and movement.
