PostSubject: Advertisment vid?   Fri Jun 18, 2010 3:23 am

I was thinking recently that dragon's cove should have some kind of advertisment vid out on Youtube. It doesn't have to be very abstract, but I just think it would be good advertisment to put ourselvs out there.

So I had a song in mind that we could do just about anything with, but I'ma asking you guys... and maybe we could all collaberate something...idk just thinking out loud. Razz

oh and the song is This is war, by 30 seconds to mars. I think it fits out current big plot nicely. Tel me what y'all think

when the song hits his part....To the Soldier, The Civillian, The Martyr, The Victim maybe can flash to a character it may represent? good and evil maybe flash to the leaders of those sides?

Brave New World, it's a Brave New World, It's A Brave New World maybe flash to the map of DC of background scenes of differnt areas of the cove.



just ideas......

This seems vaguely similar to Areo's idea. But then again, their's was a movie trailer. I love your idea of a song. Yet in my opinion, after watching other videos that are prior this, I get quite bored. Simply because all they are, are pictures of random characters who I haven't got a clue who they are. Plus, they don't even fit into the song they chose.
So if you were going to make one, to make it stand out, I'd probably add some animation into it, and fit the pictures that you include in with the song. For example, since it starts of slow at the beginning of the song, I'd suggest explaining vaguely what DC is, and what it's all about. Then as the general tune kicks in, include animations/pictures of fight scenes, etc. Just to make it interesting as such. But of course, they're only ideas.
Overall, I think it would be a fun little project to play with. And I as soon as my exams are all over, I'd be quite interested in helping out greatly with this idea. And I'm even thinking out some random ideas that could work that I might begin play around a little with.

Yeah I know what your talking about. I hate pictures that don't fit with the music. If I had an animation program I would toatally do animations to it. I would love any help you could give me. I think I will try to look for clips I could use from different series or something, but I'm not completely sure. Thanks for your thoughts ^^

I'd be careful with using clips from other series for the forum because we wouldn't want people to think we're unoriginal. Plus, if some random idiot thinks you're stealing stuff then you'll get into trouble. You know how some of the idiots on youtube are, it's no better than the reporting on neo, maybe not quite as bad yet, but you get the general idea.

First things first, it´s great to see you´re eager to get DC advertised, yay! Can´t say anything about song choice, no access to it at the moment though I agree with monty in that it should sync with the ideas you put in, and eldar in that generally images from entirely different games/movies/artists etc may not give the right idea, but its your call, remember the DC artists are always at your servıce hehe.

Oh and finally, if all gets made and stuff, make sure you advertise to the right kinda people ^^

Besides that, I say go for it!

I've been thinking about the vid, and I think that since this is an advertisment for the whole forum ppl who want to should put their ideas on a story board sheet kinda thing and we can try to put the ideas in the advertisment.

on a different point i have two ideas I'm hopeing some of the animators might try to do. I was thinking that maybe we could do like a motion shot where we have Zartear and a kind of army in the background with some of his loyal subjects behind him and the (metaphorical) camera goes from a birds eye view, swings around until your coming up towards Zartears eye before cutting off. I also have a picture of like the leaders standing (trying to describe two shots at once is hard) like a picture of a kinda 3/4 vie of zartear and a pose behind him (same for the good group) and like a main pose person from behind the character flahses foward before the shot switches to the armies colliding. (this last shot could be done with still shots too. A picture of the groups startng to move together then to a shot of them closer together then a shot of the group colliding) idk I've just had these ideas running through my mind but havn't been able to do anything with them...so if anyone feels like doing anything with that feel free.

Been chewing on this idea for a while, and I finally got around to nabbing the song. I've spliced it so that the song is now shorter than two minuets, cutting out the choruses and whatnot. The lyrics now read like this:

A warning to the people
The good and the evil
This is war

To the soldier, the civilian
The martyr, the victim
This is war

A warning to the prophet
The liar, the honest
This is war

To the leader, the pariah
The victim, the messiah
This is war

It's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
The moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to fight, the moment to fight, to fight, to fight, to fight!

To the right, to the left
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world from the last to the first

To the right, to the left
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world, it's a brave new world, it's a brave new world

A brave new world
A brave new world
(end)


The task now would be to figure out who goes into what category. I like the idea of faces that are animated, not just pictures that are zoomed in/out on flashing to their corresponding likeness when the lyric is sung. The first verse, "A warning to the people... this is war" I imagine would be a detailed map of DC or smoke rising from a burning Quinsilla and the decimated village. We need:

The soldier, the civilian
The martyr, the victim
The prophet
The liar, the honest
The leader, the pariah
The victim, the messiah

Though "the victim" lyric is repeated, I believe that we should have two different character represented. Thoughts on who could go in these spaces? This would be like an "introduction" to the rest of the song and the images. Only the characters shown in the intro section would be shown throughout the rest of the video, anyone they're fighting that wasn't in the intro section would be like "faceless generic soldier #20", unless specific battles are requested.

I like Monty's idea about on the the "brave new world" bits to show the DC map. The last two "brave new world"'s would be neat if we could get a "flying over the mountains and valleys" type deal that de-saturates and fades out to the map of DC at the end before fading to black.

Also, for the second "To the right... to the death" part, I suggest the epic battle between Vann and Zary because I'm selfish like that :3 Also, I have flash, fireworks, and aftereffects on my computer. If ANYONE knows how to use them, plz halp! I used fireworks ONCE, and as far as I can tell, it's JUST like Photoshop minus some bells and whistles.

Right, so here’s the thing.
A few people have suggested making an advertisement video to post on youtube or any other sites letting people know about the forum. So I've been talking, and have thought of something that could work.
What we want you to do now, is to draw/animate as many things as possible. Either of characters, or scenes from roleplays you've been in etc. We'd preferably like more scene pictures than characters, but we're not ruling it out. And of course, if you could make some animations, however long, that would be great!
This way, rather than basing the video solely about one thing, we get a mixture. It will show others the wide range of roleplays we've got going on here, and that we're different from every other forum. Plus, it would be a good compilation and a great team effort, rather than one person making something. We are, after all, in this together, so lets make something together.

What do you mean? What should I draw/animate?

Anything.
Anything related to the forum. (About the rating of 12 years). It could be your favourite character, a powerful scene from a roleplay you've just been in or a fight scene from the plot. Absolutely anything. You can do as many as you want, just go crazy. Also, don't get stressed if you think you're terrible at drawing, or it's not going right, it doesn't matter. Just go for it. I personally think it will look great if we do all this and finish it.

When you think you've got something you'd like to put into the video, just send it to me, Zay or Eldar through a personal message.
And just another note, we'll be giving out gold for 'entries'. Just a little heads up. (:

So go on, go crazy!
