Oh, hello.  You came to see something did you? 

Well have a look at this beauty right here.  It makes me feel all flighty.  Whatever flighty means: 

EENDAG:  Journey with my father through the heavens above

Plot:  (Yes, there's a plot!  Lovely.) 

In order to lift Kevin's spirits, Kevin's father Franciscus takes him on a flight through the heavens above.

Ps:  Aldridge, be careful to watch.  You might find it too violent. 

Behind the scenes notes:

Yeah well so the airplane like went wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaoooooooonnnnnnyoooooo!!!!  and like then it makes prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and wheeowheeowheeowheeeo and so on and on. 

Basically I had fun riding around in airplanes.  Soll good. 

Ever since the wright brothers created the first airplane, mankind's dream was to fly around in it.

And today, lo and behold, we're doing it.  Wow it's amazing.  How far we've come.  From flying around in air balloons to now riding around in cars.  And sometimes taking flights in aeroplanes.  It's magical. 

Seriously, I had fun making this movie.  It reminds me of aeroplanes. 

You people like aeroplanes?  Yeah, aeroplanes are great.  They fly. 

K bye.

That was pretty cool Marius. Where do you get all the bread to do all this stuff? How did you manage to get a ride all by yourself on a giant airplane? The only part I have a complaint about is the scene with your Mom and Dad having a picnic in the aircraft hangar...I can't understand a word they say. Maybe next time you can ask Mike Cervello for some tips on audio.

Glad you had a watch Aldridge!  Thanks :)  Sounds like you won't be having too many nightmares about the violence level either. 

Couldn't understand a word??  Like what, nothing?  Oh dear.  Well it's not perfect but I don't feel like going back and redoing it.  This thing's been taking almost a month as it is to make.  Longest time an EENDAG episode ever took. 

I'll just give you the jist of it: 

Isadôra (Kevin's mother) says she's been reviewing her stories (she's a writer), playing the piano (she's a pianist), worrying herself sick over Kevin (she's a mother).

So Franciscus says he'll lift Kevin's spirit by taking his body along with his spirit sky-high in his flying vehicles. 

Kevin's depressed about Muyz.  They hope to one day hold Muyz accountable for his crimes.  Muyz is the bad guy of the story btw. 

So then he takes Kevin up in the skies to get a bigger perspective on life. 

And in the end Kevin decides maybe he does have his share of blessing in life too.  Represented by the peach he gets to eat under the watchful eye of a winged dove.  

Anyway Aldridge, would you be interested in watching other parts of the EENDAG story not in English but with English subtitles?  Cuz actually this story isn't in English at all.  The characters speak English in about three chapters because of living a fake life for a reason that will become clear later.

I don't feel like adding subtitles because it takes work.  However, if there are people interested, I'll do it so as not to exclude even one viewer who likes to view it.  Do you like to view it?

 Ok go ahead with the subtitles then if you like. Thanks for explaining the story to me...I think it's interesting. Your Pop has some serious dough to be able to buy all those nice planes. I thought South Africa was poor. You've been holding out on me.

Pff, oh please.  My father is still one of those who believes in honest business practices which means he'll never make astronomical amounts of money.  But he does get his blessings with enough to get by.  

And as for South Africa, from the 1950's - 1980's it was becoming the world's most strongest superpower which is why some evil global elite had to destroy it with some ridiculous "anti-apartheid" global media campaign to smear and destroy South Africa and turn it into the failed "politically correct" evil mafia-run state it is today headed for total disaster. 

Sort of like the same evil people destroyed the soviet first moon landing mission and instead propped up some american first moon landing thingy which today lots of people claim was all faked and staged for the camera but none of those actors were ever actually on the moon.  I'm inclined to believe they were but I won't be surprized if they weren't.  It wasn't about who gets to the moon first.  It was about suppressing mankind's development.    

Anyway, don't be so money obsessed. Money is all artificially created. It's what evil people crave in order to have power over especially good folk and oppress them into suffering.  It's an artificial form of control.   

Just enjoy money as a game.  It is just a game to good people.  Play it wise and even a little will go a long way and even blossom into fortunes.  Likewise, play it unwisely and you'll end up with debt and becoming derailed and falling off a cliff.  Money is a fun game. 

Anyway, I'll subtitle all the rest of the story just for you ;o) 

Happy Aldridging!

After reading this, I feel just for safety I must just clearly state that the above EENDAG film was prerecorded.

 You still haven't answered my question on how you got to ride all by yourself on the big plane. Stowaway perhaps?

Easy.  I bought the Boeing negotiating 30 days to pay, shot all my shots plus a lot of extra footage, then sold it and paid for it.  So the scene cost virtually nothing to make except for a short flight.

So no, it didn't mean I have a lot of money.  Sorry if you thought you finally were friends with rich people.  

Would have cost millions I just don't have if I kept the plane but the last thing I need now is to own an Airbus or whatever the infernal thing is called and try to shove it onto my backlot or fit it into my props department warehouse.  It would just deteriorate and take far too much space and it's a damn hoarded mess as it is that I've been trying to tidy up for years.

In fact, for years my props department gave me nightmares.  I just don't really know how to get it all sorted and organized. 

But fortunately in recent months I feel like in a few years I should have it at least much better under control.

Now let's enjoy this picture of an Airbus:


Yeah.  Pretty little thing.

 Okay, the aerials and planes were cool.  Nice music and editing.  Also nice to see you sitting there looking nicely composed.  :>) 

The sound in the hangar was mostly incoherent.  Surprising coming from you, because you usually work the sound well.  Just when I started to get into the flow of a scene, an advert would pop up....multiple times!  For some strange reason, It ends with the opening of Kronobotz.

Hey thanks for watching, Conair!  Glad you enjoyed the journey.  

Also nice to see you sitting there looking nicely composed.

As opposed to looking how?

I hate those adverts in the middle of the thing more than you know, and have indeed contacted the relevant video host about dropping those and only using the beginning and end advertising spots.  Here's their response: 

"We will forward it to our product team. We give great attention to our users' comments and suggestions. 

However, we would like to remind you that like any media (TV, radio,…), proposing content that is either produced by professionals or private individuals, has the need to cover its expenditure in order to offer this service to you.

Thus, for us and most of other media, advertising remains the main source of income.

Rest assured that all our teams are doing their best to ensure an optimal experience on our site.

Thanks again for your feedback, which will help us improve the use of our service."

So I don't quite think they got that it's about dropping those interruptive middle ads and keeping the beginning and end ones.  They erronously think I said advertising should be dropped.  

Maybe they lost focus on exactly what I was saying when I worded it as that those middle ads make me kak in my panties with frustration and want to scream into my own arsehole. 

I'll give it some time and then try again, this time saying  THE POINT IS EXACTLY THIS:  Keep the advertising but ONLY at the start and end;  NOT in the middle. 

Anyway it's only on videos longer than 5 minutes that there are "commercial breaks".  I try to make these EENDAG films 5 minutes exactly but this one went far over, even when I cut out a lot so now it may be annoying to see the ad but at least you're getting more material. 

But anyway, once you press the X on the corner of the ad, the second time around it doesn't show the ad. 

So just watch it twice in a row or something.  It's better second time around anyway. 

he sound in the hangar was mostly incoherent."

Odd.  I hear it just fine.

I'll give it a day or so then see if I want to redo it ADR. 

For some strange reason, It ends with the opening of Kronobotz."

No it doesn't.  That "Kronobotz" has long been recalled.  Forget it exists. 

Just throw those old DVD's away that you've got and I'll send you the new "EENDAG:  The stranger" as a complimentary product.  You can just pay $50 international postage & packaging.  :)

Anyway, cheers for watching, Concave!  Don't be a stranger. 

Now let's look at an odd looking plane:

It's on earth.  Something that shiny is obviously made to reflect radiation away.  It's a space vehicle but it's crawling around on earth.  I'm like hey yo, space is thatta way! (pointing up). 

Must have gotten lost.
