What happened to your videos Baby Photos and What You Can Find On The Internet?
YouTube took them down, I guess because somebody flagged them as inappropriate. You can find them here and here.
What software do you use to animate Some Grey Bloke?
The characters are drawn in Adobe Flash, and I use Magpie Pro and After Effects to do the lip sync, eye movements and blinks. I've used 3D programs like Blender to make some of the backgrounds. You can find blog posts relating to animation here.
How long does it take to animate a minute of Grey Bloke talking?
I could probably do a minute in about three hours, but the process is so very tedious that I can only focus on it in short bursts so it usually takes several days.
Why don't you just use an automated lip sync program?
Because most of them don't work properly. If something like this were cheaper I'd give it a go.
Why don't you make more videos?
Because I'm lazy and I hate animating.
But I subscribed to your channel and I want more frequent uploads!
I saw Jessica Alba in a movie and I want to go to bed with her.
I guess we all just have to learn to live with disappointment.
Why is the sound on some of your videos so bad?
Because I suck.
Why is Graham's voice different in some of the videos?
Because I suck.
I've written a script for a Grey Bloke video. Will you make it please?
I want some animation done and I don't have any money but lots of people will see it and it will be great exposure for you. Will you do it?
I notice that you are confused about God's plan for the salvation of his creation. Can we engage in correspondence so I can explain my view of Christianity (which is the correct view of Christianity, not like all those fake wrong views people keep sending you)?
But I really want to. I get Jesus Nectar points for every soul I save.
I'm happy for you but still not interested.
Why do you make fun of people's religious beliefs?
Because those beliefs are ridiculous.
Why do you make fun of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)?
Because all historical/mythological figures are fair game for comedy. And if one of those figures is idolised by people who will actually kill to defend his name, then making fun of him becomes "edgy".
But isn't it a bit easy and comedically hacky to keep mocking religion?
Yes it is, and I really would like to stop. But then some pope or imam says something stupid and oops, I'm off again.
What do you think of Ray William Johnson?
I cannot stand him.
Is that really a frequently asked question or did you just want to say that you hate him?
Yeah, I probably shouldn't leave that in. It's not him I hate exactly, but the persona he affects and the fact that his success is built on replaying other people's uploads while he makes banal comments. But then his videos aren't aimed at me, and I'm just jealous really.
Are you Banksy?
