Straight from Rob's DevArt journal:

Quote
Still some editing left to be done, but it looks amazing. Sometime in June the world gets to experience the first official Machinae Supremacy rock (yes rock, not music) video. Exciting times for me.

Whats the difference between a musicvideo and a rockvideo ?

"Music video" sounds like mediocre mtv crap and the term rock video implies that this one... rocks?

Indeed.

A music video is more like vj crap, with graphics and naked women.. and a rock video is more scenes of the band itself, more action, and.. hopefully more naked women.

nah, the less sex the better.

there's enough sex in the world.
we don't need Machinae to sexualize themselves.

From what I've heard, there will be somewhat of a story behind the video, cut between shots of the band and the story of the kid in that picture.

SPECULATION.

It'd be silly to not have it on YouTube. And also silly to not allow embedding of it.

I forgot to ask (don't wanna make another post, and it makes this one on-topic ;D) I don't know if you plan to make this or perhaps other forumers could? But avatars and maybe signatures of stills taken from the video to use for our own amusement?

/me gently shepherds people back on topic so they won't have to face the consequences.

Ah, yes, the rock vid... Ramming it down people's throats sounds good, I reckon I'll be spending a goodly amount of time pimping it myself. If it goes well it will be yet another effective tool to introduce new members into the cult of Machinae.

Final price tag isn't yet clear. Still some issues to work out, like how much is Spinefarm going to chip in, and what of the equipment we borrowed was actually free or for hire, etc...

But either way it turns out, I'd estimate that we got a production value of 30 000 euros for less than 1/10th of that in budget, which is a sweet deal. :)

Just out of curiousity, how did the whole process work with filming the rock video?

Shh! Let them get the video out first, then ask questions :)

I'm just curious how the whole process works. I've personally never had the chance to ask someone whom has experienced it before. :)

Though, I don't think Robert has any work left on the video. Sounds like it's done and we're just waiting for it to release. I'm in no hurry (other than just obviously wanting to see it), so I figured now was the best time to ask questions =)

I didn't suspect it was, I was refering to Robert (and the band) having any work left on it. It seems like the filming portion is complete, hince why I was asking how the whole processed worked and if he liked it.

I wasn't really trying to make any particular point or suggest the video was done. I obviously have no clue how that production works :)

My apologies if I misworded myself :)

For the band it was an insane 2 days of playing the song over and over while moshing and rocking out. There wasn't a lot of down-time those days.

For the film and light crew the work took 4 days, or 3,5 something like... Then of course, the editing is what's taken the longest, although I have no clue as to exactly how long. They don't work on it daily, but a every now and then.

When we recorded we brought in a PA and speakers in which the recorded version was played while we played the song along with it (to get it perfectly synched with the recorded song).

Besides the band and the huge cast of one extra, the crew consisted of a light technician (a real pro, worked with Ingmar Bergman back in the day, and now most recently rented out his stuff to a film crew filming Vin Diesel up at Riskgränsen), a director (Tomi, from Inja) and a camera operator / director of photography.

Yes, I feel very bad about it ... I am a horrible person, a liar and ... just plain awful. :(
I put the screws to Tomi the other night though, to make sure they'll take care of the last edits asap...

The reason it's taken long is because of other projects (that they actually get reasonable paid for)
with more rigid deadlines, that've gotten in the way.

Maybe I'll one day learn to put every release date 6 months later than I myself expect something to happen,
and maybe we'll be better at keeping those promises.

Maybe you should put the release date 1 year later than the expected date. I know it sounds awful long, but when you get the thing finally done, you could be like "Guess what people ... the video is done 3 months earlier than we thought it would be!"

And that way, the people in the forum would be like "sweeeet! May the Gods of SiD Metal bless your soul" or something like that.

In June we saw a version of the video that was very close to complete, at least as far as we could tell.

There were some cuts that didn't measure up, and we asked for them to be fixed, and then I believe there were some details the makers wanted to add, like some camera effects and such...

But seriously, it's been 2 months now... And all I ever hear is excuses. And what's worse, all I can give YOU GUYS is excuses. I'm really sorry for this, everyone.

I need to try something extreme to make this happen... Just don't know what, yet.

Post by: robert on September 11, 2007, 08:03:36 pm
Ok... Update time.

A short while ago we turned over the witch hunt to Spinefarm, and told them to hunt the makers down and make them deliver, and yesterday we were contacted by them.

They've said they feel really bad about the long delay, and that we'll have the video next week.

NOW, people... REALIZE that this is NOT A PROMISE. I know better than to try that again, because even if this time might be different, we've heard the "next week" speech before.

But let's hope this time it's for real, ok? I do, and I think maybe the pressure from Spinefarm was the bit that needed to make this happen.
Best case scenario, there'll be a rock video available within a few weeks.

I got an email from Hannu, our label manager at Spinefarm, today.

This is what it said (among other things):

Hi!

I don't know if you have been in contact with Tomi, but anyway he
promised the video to be ready next Monday:)


... So let's hope that it's for real. I assume it really means NEXT monday, and not this coming monday, but either way I feel that now things will happen, it's not just empty talk, so... Soon, my friends...

Also, obviously, the video is out too late, and we're already talking about what to do for the next album, but maybe, with your help we can make this video go as far as anything could ever go anyway, and make way for all that is to come.

In other words, people, let's use all means to distribute this video once's it's out. DC, torrent, *.*p2p, websites, youtube, google video, IRC, Facebook, MySpace, IRC-Galleria, and everything you can think of...

My plan is to have the video released in a few different formats, two at least, directly on our site, and then we work from there. We'll make a thread here for how to spread it as far and wide as possible once it's out.
