Random Otakon Video Progress Thoughts

Post by VegettoEX » Tue Mar 23, 2004 3:27 pm

Timeline's full. Sent out to some people for beta testing. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it; I think the concept is utterly cute and fantastic, but some of the timing and content is just turning me off. Hopefully cleaning that up will bring it back full circle to loving it, again. Probably have a shitload of Photoshop work ahead of myself to make one section significantly better.

I severely doubt it's going to actually make it into the final Otakon contest, but I didn't make it for that purpose, anyway, so no biggie. You can probably expect it a month or so before Otakon, then (well, whenever they release the final list).

Not that this has anything to do with anything. Blah. Doo-be-do-doo-dooo~.

I think he's trying to take advantage of EX's busy schedule. I'm sure EX has so much to do with the site, his AMV, and school that Jakez is hoping he'll fool him into thinking he really was supposed to send him one and just forgot with everything to do. :wink: Shame on you Jakez! :x :P

Well if we, the law abiding, loving members of EX's forum can't be beta testers then who can? Surely we, his greatest fans, experienced amv makers should get a say in his videos.....

...somewhere along the way to the top you forgot the people that really matter EX, the fans...for shame.


































...pm the beta 8)

Hah.

I randomly decided to start working on the video again tonight. I've been halfway inspired to work on mine after watching Meri do some of her own video, today. The Otakon deadline is May 9th, so it certainly didn't hurt to do some work on it tonight.

Randomly (yes, I like the word)... I found yet another "perfect" scene for the video. With just the right amount of actions for a specific section of the song. To synch up perfectly.

I laughed, I cried, I edited.

Loving it, again.

Hm...so how does one get to be a beta tester for this video? *hint hint*

There's nothing exported to even beta, right now :P

Once the Otakon deadline's passed (and thus the video's completely done), I might give it out to a few of the board posters who want it. It's not officially going up until after the convention (especially if it makes it in the final contest cut), but whatever. :D

To end any doubt... yes, it's a DBZ video. No, it's not a drama video.

I want the video, but I don't really want it from IRC, so I think I can wait. I assume that's how you'd be handing it out?

By the by, Otakon's deadline is May 8, not the 9th (the 9th is a Sunday).

I think we should both be done by then, though.

It'll actually be released August 1st, probably. Yeah, that's a ways off. I know. Imagine what it's like to have a video made and need to sit on it for so long until the contest :P. Actually, last year, we had Obligatory EVA Trailer done in March, which we made for Otakon... aiyaaa...

Anyway...

I'm actually encoding the internet distro version as we speak (or rather, as I type). I may send it out to some people at some point, but definitely not tonight.
