FAQ

When is the next Charlie the Unicorn/ Horse Man / Whatever video coming out?
In twenty thousand years in a fantastic futuristic world, full of yarn people.  Everyone is made of yarn in the future, why not.  Honestly, I’m not really sure, please don’t e-mail me about this.

What software do you use?
For editing I use Final Cut Pro 7. For artwork I use Photoshop CC and Animate CC. For animation and visual effects I use After Effects CC. For audio recording I use a program called Amadeus Pro, and for music I use Logic Pro.  For lip syncing I use Magpie Pro.

What hardware / camera do you use?
I do all of my work on a Mac Pro tower. The microphone I use for my voice-overs is a Shure SM7B, which hooks up to my computer through a Focusrite audio hub. I draw using a Wacom Intuos4 and a Wacom Cintiq. I currently shoot my live-action videos with a Canon 70D and a Rode VideoMic Pro microphone.

Do you get paid for this?
Yes.  I currently make my living through YouTube ad revenue and merchandise.

Why haven’t you replied to my e-mail / singing telegraph?
It’s gotten to the point where I simply can’t reply to every e-mail I get anymore. So please don’t take it personally if I don’t e-mail you back. I do read all of the e-mails I get, but it’s just not possible to reply to them all.

Can I use something from your video in a project of mine?
Feel free to use anything I’ve made in your project as long as the project is non-profit. And by that I mean it’s not for sale, nor is it generating any advertising money, nor is the sole purpose of the project to advertise something that IS for sale.

Can I send you my ideas for a video / Charlie episode?
No. I do not read the Charlie / Llamas with Hats scripts or “ideas for a FilmCow movie” that people send me. I appreciate the support but I’m just not interested in making movies based on other people’s ideas right now.  Thanks though!

What are the names / genders of the blue and pink unicorns?
They are genderless and their names are a SEEEECCCREEEEETTTT…

What are the unicorns in Charlie the Unicorn 2 saying in Spanish?
It’s more or less all nonsense. The basic translation is this:

The man with the hat sent us!
He told us many amazing stories!
Tonight we dine on turtles!
So good, they will be!
I am happy!

Who makes these movies?
Check the credits, YOU SILLY PERSON.

How do you make your movies?
If you have a specific question go ahead and e-mail me! The best way to learn how to make movies is to simply go out and try to make them. George the Third was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from October 25th, 1760 until January 1st, 1801, and thereafter of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death.

Can you watch my movies and tell me what you think?
Please don’t send me your movies to watch unless you’ve really put some work into them. And plleeeaaasee don’t be offended if I don’t respond – I get sent a ton of videos a week and I simply don’t have the time to watch most of them.

Thank you, this has been a great FAQ.
Oh god no don’t compliment me, I’m now spiraling into self-hatred nooooooo…
