World Domination is a Serious Problem

Recommended Posts

Well, I accidentally posted this in the general discussion forum thinking it was the off topic forum and it looks like someone deleted it (It would have been really nice if it was moved, as I don't have a copy of what I wrote...if for some reason I'm not allowed to post this, then go ahead and delete this also, though a PM would be nice). Anyway, I apologize for doing that and it was very stupid on my part.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Anyway, some of you may remember when I posted about my first youtube video, Youtube is a serious Problem. Well, months later I decided to do another one: World Domination is a Serious Problem....for you!!! This time with more professional editing, less slap-stick comedy, and better acting (in my opinion).

 

You can check it out at

.

 

Any comments, negative or positive, would be interesting and or ammusing. I'm debating whether to continue this series and or do some other things to waste my time, so, that may factor into my decision.

 

There were a few other things I mentioned in my other post, but now I want to go out inline skating, so I'll add them later (unless a mod has a copy of my post, please replace it with this one....I'd be very happy :-P).

 

EDIT1: One of the interesting things about this video was that it was done completely with open source software (except for my usage of Adobe Photoshop.....I love it too much, just not enough to pay for the upgrade to CS2 yet....7.0 is fine for me anyway). I used cinnerella for the video editing (awesome advanced video editing programing) and did everything on gentoo linux.

Here is the original from the deleted thread:

 

Well, a while back I posted on here about my first youtube video, Youtube is a Serious Problem (at least I think I did). Months later, I decided to do another one, this time known as, "World Domination is a Serious Problem.......For You!!!!"

 

Unlike my first video, this one features more professional editing (along with a somewhat elaborate clone affect...), less slap-stick comedy, and better acting (in my opinion).

 

The video is at

.

 

If you like it, let me know, as I'm considering turning this into a series that I do more often than every 8 months like it currently stands. Also, if you hate it, or something inbetween, let me know also, as I can waste my time on a new programming project or doing some work to make money instead :-P Any feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated and or interesting and or amusing.

 

--------------------------------------------

 

For the movie editors out their, some of you may be surprised to know that this video was editing *almost* completely using open source software and on an open source environment. I used cinelerra (which is an awesome, very advanced video editing system that is free and open source) for video editing and developed everything on my laptop running gentoo Linux. I cheated a little though due to my use of Adobe Photoshop running under wine (I love photoshop too much :-P...though, not enough to pay for the upgrade to CS...one day I will...currently using 7.0).

 

EDIT: by the way, if you have the bandwidth, the high quality version does look better than the normal version by a fair amount.

Yeah, I've heard similar comments. They really liked the first video I did (Youtube is a Serious Problem), but didn't feel the same for this one. They didn't dislike it, but they didn't find it nearly as likable as my first one. I think I'll go on to another programming project and stop with the videos for a while :-P

 

Well first of all.. you need serious help tho confused.gif lol

lol, well anyway, keep in mind that it is just planned out acting (I didn't have a written script, but I had the whole thing planned in my head ahead of time). I have a **little** sanity. :-P

 

I took a differnt approach with this one and it was longer. I apparently failed though. But oh well, I'll probably come with up with another idea one day. Either way, it was fun taking the footage and editing it.

 

EDIT: You know, these "you need help" comments are starting to bug me. I find it kind of funny that when someone else goes beyond what their own comfort level is, they assume the person is nuts or actually like that and that "they need help" . If these comments are simply people joking around, then, fine LOL. But, it concerns me if people think that I actually "need help". >_>

 

Sometimes it's fun to step a little outside of your comfort zone.

so i also very well know what you mean with "stepping out of the comfort zone".

 

we did alot of socialcritic stuff back in the days in theatre. the reactions in insider

newspapers and when talking to the audience were... well lets say quite interesting.
