Title: So let's get to work.. [Conveyer Video]
Post by: Afterburn on March 28, 2008, 04:28:18 am
Okay, first of all let me apologize for being so late on this. I know we were supposed to start around two weeks ago but I have had some difficulties in the RL here but now most of those things are sorted out. I'm still alive and I hope the video project's still a go and nobody's given up on it yet!

As you guys know, this will be a multiple fan video, meaning multiple videos from multiple people will be put into a video featuring Conveyer. What I'll need is people lip-syncing, instruments (drums, guitar, harp, bassoon, whatever) being played, and so on and so forth. Shoot the videos of yourselves and I'll work on getting them to me momentarily. If you've got any questions, ask ahead! I've gotta get going for now.. hope to see some results here in a few days!

What about random visuals? I could do that.

Don't know how much help I'd be, since I can only play keyboard. =(

Damn...I'm open in lending a hand.

I can provide whatever MIDI sounds you want, random videos related to Conveyer (I was thinking of actually making a "conveyer" with something moving along it XD), lip sync videos (I need lyrics though o_o), me playing bass and being all "Dezo", stuff like that.

Just request for something of what I've said and I'll give ^^

hmm, from some of the comments here it seems you are remaking the song? I thought it was a fan made video, for the original song. Not so much actual playing by fans by indeed the visual of the song being played.

If i had time i would definetly be in, i look forward to seeing things.

AFAIK, it would be a fan video like that Powerman 5000 video.

So do we just record ourselves for the entire song and then you pick a part in each vid you like and put it together?

Also, the only interment I can play is a GH controller, that fine?  ;D

Post by: robert on March 29, 2008, 10:55:33 am
Sorry if this is interfering with the "fan" part of this, but I thought I'd just spew out some thoughts... The points below may be numbered, but not in any particular order, and unrelated to each other.

1. If it's hard to make the performance thing (lip sync, etc) work, there's always the possibility of doing other stuff, like that video where some band choreographed treadmills, or whatever. I'm not saying do that, I'm just saying there's more stuff that can be done to help in this, if you're not one who's comfortable with lip syncing or playing instruments in front of a camera.

2. You could always have a story, too. Or better yet, several stories, seemingly unrelated.

3. You mentioned the GH controllerl.. Maybe there's an idea there, like featuring someone in the video playing Conveyer with madskills in Guitar Hero Custom. This thing could come in every now and then, you see some guy playing, and you see the TV, like that youtube video of an 8-year old kid playing Guitar Hero 3.



Feel free to ignore me completely if I'm cramping you guys' style. Just thought I'd share some thoughts. Do with them as you please. :)

Yes, exactly! It doesn't necessary have to be lip-syncing or something related to that.. use your imagination, be creative on what you want to do. Lyrics don't make up the entirety of the song (no offense Gaz). =p

Post by: Bates on April 07, 2008, 04:19:06 pm
Some random thoughts...

The style that was discussed earlier, where we record ourselves lipsynching a machinae song, wouldn't that be ideal for Radio Future?
The video - and the whole process of making it - would perfectly tie into the "make my own transmission in the storm"-theme. In a world where mainstream music and videos turn people into obedient and uncritical drones, machinae fans are seizing Web 2.0 for their revolution. WTF. Mix in the real band singing, or even better yet, have them perform with our videos in the background, and you have the ultimate visualisation of "Radio Future"'s intentions.

As for the Conveyer video, I guess if there are a lot of different people involved, the hard part is to create a coherent look of the video. Still I prefer real video to CGI only. If we're going for CGI, I always thought that Soilwork video worked pretty well:http://youtube.com/watch?v=a733LewgmD0 (http://youtube.com/watch?v=a733LewgmD0)

And lastly an idea for the Conveyer video, in tradition of said Soilwork piece. Story pitching time:

Imagine a factory, worn down, dirty, yet running with the cold precision of a clockwork (all CGI). We're starting the video in a giant inventory and move on to production, with a complex set of machines, conveyor belts and other factory-like contraptions. In the inventory, we find hundreds (ok, maybe dozens) of cubes or generic products, each of them with their own video on them. Not surprisingly, each of the videos contains our renditions of being commercialised, "on display", a product" or simply trapped inside the cube. As we progress through the factory, we can see the cubes being produced, barcoded, etc. Some of the cubes - those where the people inside the video aren't mainstream enough - are being sorted out and destroyed. We also need lots of "mainstream" cubes, with adapted, indifferent looking people.
As a story line, we follow three cubes whose video "inhabitants" are trying to escape from the factory. Visual humor might even work here, e.g. smashing into the video flips the cube from a conveyor belt and so on. And of course, the three people inside their respective cubes are helping each other.
Of course, in the end those three cubes (or maybe only one, with the other two being cruelly destroyed) can escape onto one final conveyor belt out of the factory and into freedom. Whatever they (or he/she) finds there, could be subject to alternate endings, as it shapes the whole intention of the video. My ideas:
1. Cold, dark, empty space. The remaining cube freezes, the video flickers and disappears, the person inside suffocating. (Might not be that Machinae-like...)
2. A nuclear wasteland.
3. The surviving cubes land on a pile of other escaped cubes in an actually not too bad looking environment (maybe even with sun and green stuff like... trees)
4. I don't have the creativity for happy endings. Make up your own.

I think you guys are thinking too hard about this. Whats with all this "Cold, dark CGI scenery"? Isn't it just suppose to be a video of us rocking out and making fools of ourselves too the tune of Conveyer for the fun of it?

Ok, just rocking out seems to be the most feasible idea. No dark factories and no wristslashing housewives (http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php/topic,3428.msg135825.html#msg135825 (http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php/topic,3428.msg135825.html#msg135825)) then. I still have to pitch those ideas to rob sometimes.  :P

Even more important:
dezo approves

Cross-quoting!

-To have others play our music totally rawks =) Listen to the lyrics of radio future and then try to imagine our take of ppl making fanvids and stuff (we <3 it)

I'm no Tomas, but I can contribute some drumming vid. Any parts of the song you want done for that?

The video should at least start with all of us discussing MaSu on TeamSpeak/Vent, and then one of us going;

"We should totally do a MaSu fan video of Conveyer"

And everyone else is like "Yeah!"

I can propably contribute with some bass shots (^-^), and I'll try to get my band in on this, we're all MaSu fans. Could be awesome with shots of a complete band. However, this needs to be done before the end of this school term (20. june) as the only chance I have to get a camera to film this would be at school.

I just gave my phone and my digital camera a try at recording some video. Both suck at recording videos, but my digital camera doesn't suck as much as I thought, so I'm planning to record something tomorrow.

Update: Just recorded some stuff. My plan was walking through an industrial looking place at night while doing some lip syncing. Although I looked for places that were at least somehow lit (read: where my old camera would have likely produced nice underexposed pictures with lots of noise in them, which was exactly what I was going for) all of the videos came out way too dark, almost all black.
So now I have to think about something new.

Oh, and... the videos from my digital camera only have 10 fps - which sucks for a music video because you can't get anything in sync. It always looks off, not because it is, but because of the low framerate. My phone is even worse though, 6 to 8 fps I think...

Question: Would taking a video with an N70 be all right? o_o

Post by: leicesterfox on May 22, 2008, 11:28:29 pm
I reckon so.
I use my E70 for these sorts of purposes.
Still there is that oh so very slight off-paceness about it.
But I reckon it could go almost unoticed.

Finally got around to getting some drum vids. Not great, but probably useful for something. Uploading now, will PM soon  :).

I've got a picture of Tomas one of the live gig pics on the wall behind me, but my head covered it up since it's a small pic.

OK! SO!

How long should a shot be? Should I worry about recording myself playing the whole song, or just a rhythm section here & there?

And should I do it with sound (knowing that I am getting muted later anyway), or should sound be nonexistent on my end?

I wunna halp ;D

Also: has anyone else besides ibmman done anything for this yet?

More importantly, is there any sort of deadline?

Answers, people! :P

Well, however long you want it to be, I guess. You can be dancing around, playing an instrument, whatever.. I guess the maximum is however long you need it to be. As for sound, its not really necessary mainly because Conveyor will be played throughout the entire video. Deadline isn't really specified and I don't know if I should drop this project or not.. we had a lot of interest in the beginning, now it just disappeared.

It's disappeared cos everyone has been jabbering on other threads about useless things which have then been locked.
Many lockages means much more silence.

C'est la vie.

This project won't go foward unless you get concrete assistance and deligate who is doing what.
Pointless telling people "do what you can and send it through to me".
It just aint going to happen.
By telling them they have to actually do something if they commit to it they will begin to feel guilty if they don't.

Just a thought.

Soo...
I can still record videos with my old camera, just not on video tapes, but directly on the PC, which means the choice of locations where I can record is somehow limited...
I still can try lip syncing and playing the keyboard, but it's gonna take me a few weeks because I have a lot of stuff to do at the moment.

As late as this comment may be, wouldn't it have been better if we used Violator? Of course, unless some people actually worked on Conveyer already we can't switch...

IMO Violator's so much easier to make a fan vid out of, since it's quicker and has a more upbeat melody.  :-\

Post by: Rox on August 06, 2008, 05:18:31 pm
Alright, this thread finally caught my attention. And people! What're y'all doing?! Nothing, it seems?

I'm interested in helping out with this, to warm up my 3Ding again. I could use some low-poly stuff and practice animating and figure out lip-syncing to this song, as practice for my Ronin video. I mean, I'll have to practice on something anyway, why not practice on something that I can show later, regardless of quality?

BUT, if I'm gonna do that, I'd want some real answers as to who's still into this, who's actually started and such. It helps everyone out if everyone would just speak up right now and say "Yes, I'm still interested, I've started planning stuff to record to this part of the song" or just "No, turns out I'm too shy/don't have time/am too drunk too often" or whatever. If everyone knows what everyone's doing, this'll be a much smoother ride. Even without any kind of organization, we still need communication!

So to not be a hypocrite; I was thinking of making a low-res myself in 3D to sing along to either the chorus, or rocking to an instrumental part. There's something about a low poly 3D model rocking out to SID music that tickles my fancy.  Also, the line "stampeding humans are everywhere" caught my attention, because I'm apparently a contender to the title of resident forum furry now... I just wanna model a non-human singing that line. It'd be fun.


How the hell can I type so much and say so little?

Okay, lets see. I'm still interested, but haven't done anything by now. My hardware doesn't work and I don't have too much time. So nothing that can't be fixed. Maybe I can get myself to actually do something if I see something's going on here. Or if someone tells me "You! Do that and that an make a video of yourself doing it."

Oh shit, this is awesome.
I'm so up for this.
Whenever you're done with the GH chart, send it to me and I'll fix something.
I could also do something else, besides GH that is.

But I believe Conveyer is a really hard song to make a fan vid of. I agree with Bateman, Radio Future would be the best song ever for a fan vid.
I mean:
Quote from: Radio Future
Become our counter-culture
Broadcast yourself into
The revolution on YouTube
It says a lot. I'm up for Conveyer though, just saying it'll be shit hard to do a video out of it, and with Radio Future we have a better chance of actually making something good, instead of just random crap that has nothing to do with the actual song.
Title: Re: So let's get to work.. [Conveyer Video]
Post by: Rox on August 08, 2008, 02:59:47 pm
Oh yes, that's another point I meant to adress. The choice of song.

Topic-wise, Radio Future is obviously a great choice for something like this. But to be completely honest, I don't like the song as much as I think I could, I haven't gotten to listen to it a lot, and it doesn't stand out to me as being as catchy as Conveyer. Despite Conveyer being rather dark, Radio Future still has a bit of.. I don't know... melancholy to it? I just don't find it nearly as easy to air guitar to as I do Conveyer. I'm tempted to say, let's stick with Conveyer because apparently, it's been decided. And who knows, someone might have already done something and it'd be a shame to just change our minds all of a sudden.

Also, if you wanna make a video that's related to the song, then that's quite easy, because it's not very uncommon to have videos that tell a completely seperate story from the song itself. And often that adds up quite nicely, somehow. But that aside, the current mindset seems to be "muck about with cameras and have fun", so I'd say don't overthink it...


If you still WANT to overthink it, I know how tempting it is, I bet someone clever could make a theme out of all these different themes somehow... Something about millions of items, machines spewing out violated dreams, stampeding humans... And the factory that goes on into eternity, because we're all products of it? But that should be easy enough when the whole thing is ready for post-production. I already have some machines going on in my ideas already, so there's at least a bit of relevance that can be tied together.

Damn, I'm such a hypocrite. I almost finished the model I wanted to use for this video, started texturing and planning ahead - then I got distracted by another project of mine, and now I'm working on samples for a job I hope I get, so I'll be busy with that for a week.

But considering the current level of activity in this thread, I'm wondering if there's any idea trying to keep it up. The interest has certainly dwindled. Unless someone's already made something awesome and was stupid enough to not post it here, I think we should drop this thing. At least for now.

Hey, you skipped the last page! Where I declared this dead until further notice! ... And nobody listened, but no one's still doing anything, so it's still looking dead to me...

Whichever it is, I still think we should get this reorganized. Because I really do want to see the result of an awesome community effort here. But I think we need to start over from scratch, find out who's still in and who's not and keep going from there. Maybe even vote on a new song if it gets to that.

I'll have to admit though, one of the main reasons why I didn't is because I always preferred a Violator fan vid. IMO, it's much more...fanvid-able

I think it seems pretty clear what we need to do. We need to shut this thing down and reorganize. Find out who's up for it, for real, choose a song. Maybe get something more specific to do as people tend to be more eager to contribute when they have less to choose from than "anything you can think of".
