Title: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: Chronologix on September 14, 2007, 01:01:50 am
in case no one saw the update in the Rock Video thread [ http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php/topic,5016.135.html ], or on DA [ http://nordlander.deviantart.com/journal/14616918/#comments ]:

Quote
we'll have the video next week.

This is NOT guaranteed of course, but gives much hope to everyone anticipating the release of this video.

Do not go whining if it takes more than a week to release, or even a few, the fact that it is coming so close to completion is enough to be enthusiastic about :).

BRING IT ON!!!!                                              \,,/_(`-´)_\,,/

PS: Why were all the other Rock Video threads closed? (if albeit a good reason, this one can be closed as well)

Rob said IT'S NOT A PROMISE. So it could even be next year.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: WereVolvo on September 14, 2007, 01:16:34 am
The Rock Video threads were closed due to amounts of useless spam and offtopicness. I'm leaving this one open for now, but I may change my mind if this gets offtopic too... then it's on the highway to lockage or Random :P

OnT: If Spinefarm manages to bully the producers into releasing it next week, I shall forever be in their debt, RIAA membership aside.

Post by: Chronologix on September 14, 2007, 01:18:41 am
It is true that it is not a promise, but the fact that they gave a release date so close, means that at the very least it is ALMOST complete. Rather than saying it will be done in a few months, but have plenty of backtracking along the way.

Realistically, if you tell someone "i will have it ready for you tomorrow" you won't call back later and say "i may have to postpone this until next year" usually it would only be a few days or a week tops...just as a comparison to ETA -> Realtime
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In

So how do you explain "it'll be done next month" like 4 months ago?

Your life in Eastern Europe has made you resistant to futile hope, I see. I'm just going to wait and see. Thing is, when the people who pay you complain that you aren't doing your job, things tend to be done a lot faster.

I had a dream last night that I was watching the new vid. It involved them performing in some kind of fancy hotel. Robs hair was jet black and he was playing the keyboard, and in the audience (of the vid) were various things dressed in black. I’m not really sure what they were, I remember Darth Vader being there too. And apparently the song was remixed and the verses were completely different.

I wonder if my dream reflects reality at all

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.
What you do is this

Get the vid on mpg, avi. copy it like 5 times, then give the video p0rn video names and share it through p2p

Not that I have any problem helping to distribute the video, it sort of seems like a strange idea. I can understand places like Youtube or Facebook because there's the chance that people will stumble across it without diliberately searching for a Machinae Supremacy video. But things like Google or Bittorrent.. well, to me it seems that if somebody wants to see if Machinae Supremacy has a video, or they know a video exists and they want to see it, they'll just come straight to the website and download it off the front page!

I realize that. But in order to obtain the video on Bittorrent, wouldn't a person have to search for "Machinae Supremacy video" to get any results? Same with Google or Youtube. Just making it available on those sites isn't going to do much. You'd have to e-mail the link to people or post the link on forums an in chats.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: evilcandybag on September 23, 2007, 12:27:21 am
The keyword is "keywords". When you upload a video to places like youtube, you can add keywords that describe the contents of the video. As well as search the titles of entries, the search engine checks for the keywords as well. Add keywords like "metal", "video game music", "spinefarm", "awesome" etc. to the video, and lots of people will find it just by browsing.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In

Ontopic of HD:

Well, you need a special monitor connection if you want the extra sharp picture. But I was talking about dimensions, which start at 1280x720 which is 720p, followed by 1080i which is 1920x1080 interlaced picture, and the highest one is 1080p which is also 1920x1080, but is progressive scan, which means essentially slightly higher quality.

Yes I know these stuff, so what? >_>

Oh, come on people... give it a break. *If* it'll be here today, it's probably gonna be announced in the evening or something... there's no guarantee the studio sent it over first thing in the morning. And anyway, the band is probably gonna watch it a few times first too see if they're satisfied with it. And then it needs to be uploaded and distributed across the 'net.

So just calm down for now... breathe deep and tell yourself "I'm a river of tranquility" or some equally deep zen-ish stuff ;)

We have the video.

Now we need to decide on formats, and also Spinefarm want to host the video, so we'll get it up on their server once we got the right formats, and then we'll post news about it. I hope this will be quickly taken care of.

the time is nigh upon us!

So I guess I'm fubar til I get home anyway =P

Yep, quakenet is where all the cool (read: people with no life, up to and including myself) guys hang out. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view), it's where all the weirdos hang out too. Never been to the ircnet one though, so I can't compare the two, really.

must... see... video.... FIRST
National holiday over here... :)

Oh well... we could approximate the time needed to upload the video, if we say 512 kbit/s upstream = 64 KB/s = 0.0625 MB/s, 720p has, let's say, 15 Mbit/s which is 1.875 MB/s. TTLG is around 5 minutes long, so the filesize of the video is 5*60*1.875 = 646.875 MB. If we divide that by the MB/second we get 10350 seconds, which is 172.5 minutes, which is two hours, 52 minutes and 30 seconds, which means that the video will be released at around 2 o' clock, when I'm gone baking.
Damn.

So let's hope robert has a faster connection.

But yeah, awesome video... watched the low-quality one on youtube, downloading a higher-res one as we speak. I may have to watch it a few times to let the full impact of the thing sink in.

Kind of what I was expecting.

I admit that I couldn't help but get chills from seeing the guys play in a good-quality video, but it still
wasn't anything terribly exciting.

the kid reminded me too much of the B4-4 video where the kid sits around getting a hard on from seeing the boy band through the
little view finder.

Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: furinto on October 03, 2007, 04:09:32 pm
Eh, so I guess i'm a little disappointed, but that happens with everything that gets a fuckton of hype. I set myself up for it.

My biggest gripe is that the sync is way off. Usually in music videos I can't tell that the sound is dubbed over, but Rob's lips and his voice don't match at all. Not the band's fault, really, just the editting. Another thing is that there was no real concept to it. Nothing wrong at all with actually seeing the band play (really impressive) and it's far better than watching amateur recordings of a live show on a cramped stage in front of a crowd in low quality! I guess I'm nitpicking. The thing with the little boy went nowhere, but was a nice attempt.

You guys rock, and for your first video it is still really good. It was still really cool to watch you guys do your thing. Keep it up, learn from mistakes, and I look forward to future videos of even cooler songs!

Edit: My comment about the syncing came from watching the lower-quality Quicktime video. But I just watched the Youtube version linked by WereVolvo and it didn't seem as bad. Weird.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In

Screw this, I'll go with the low-res version before getting the hi-res one.

Hmmm, indeed, the sync seemed a bit off for me. Gotta try the vid's another versions for a comparison.
And yeah, the lack of a background story was a big blow for me; I was kinda hoping we'd get something more than just seeing the band play.

Also, the ticket that kid was holding was a nice touch. Sig'd! ;D

Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: evilcandybag on October 03, 2007, 06:20:05 pm
The video was exactly what I'd expected it to be. A standard issue rock video. It was quite good for a standard issue rock video (though as somebody already said in this thread, the sound felt a bit out of sync), but standard issue rock videos don't really strike me as particularly awesome.
Thing is, very few rock bands have good videos. Most bands never leave the state this video is at, ie. the band playing in some off place, and then add in a tiny piece of drama at some spots (the boy with the ticket in this case).
Very few bands manage to find their own style and make ruly awesome videos (Rammstein is one example of a band with great vids), and I can only hope MaSu will manage this as well after a few videos.

Oh and one thing, was the desicion to make it a Quicktime movie taken at band or label level? In the case of band level, please motivate, because I can't see why.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: Lysix on October 03, 2007, 06:24:09 pm
i think for their first video, its a great job. obviously its a bit patchy in some areas (i noticed a short gap of nothingness which definately shouldnt be there) but then they didnt have some top class video director and editor in to help them. like the style of the music im pretty certain the later videos will get better and "evolve", especially with spinefarms funding :P
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: Laser.T on October 03, 2007, 06:31:56 pm
It's a fantastic video! Just as I expected, and I'm not complaining. It wouldn't expect anything more (not at the moment anyway). My highlight was the shot of Gibli's lightning solo - I don't watch many rock videos so I dunno if that's standard fare, but it was good for me. Unfortunately the lip-sync was noticeable at points, even to me. I didn't notice any problem early on, then at some point in the middle it was really noticeable, but towards the end it lined back up again.

And about the boy: Was he supposed to be sensing the band's audio presence even though they weren't there or something?

thing1: *too

thing2: Most of the time I hate seeing a music video until I've become familiarized with the song... as is the case with this one.  But music videos, in my experience, are absolutely terrible all-in-all, with very rare exception. They either have too many shots of the band or too much attempt at cheesy story... or a fun (disclaimer: not actually fun) mix between the two. This is just the opinion from 1 person who doesn't like the idea of music videos, of course...
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: Fallout on October 03, 2007, 07:41:47 pm
I like it. I like it a lot. Call me biased, but I think it's just the right mix of story/band. The camera angles and closeups really make the video interesting as well, not your average music video w/ fixed camera.

Something's bothering me though. Around the 1:00 mark, the video goes really choppy. I do agree, the syncing is quite poor in some places, and finally, rob's dancing could do with a little work hehe ;)

It is not much more than your average rock video though, but I feel very confident MaSu will learn from it and do even better next time!
And honestly, imo it was very good seeing it's their first video and all.

 The shame. If only they could sell it on more SID instead of having the retail edition's castrated synth/sid/not guitars :( Oh well, at least we get the vocals. The vid was fine (even if I dislike that version of TTLG), though that boy...seemed a little pointless if it was essentially the band playing.

w00t great video... Same opinion as most people before, for your first video it's really good.

Some personal opinions:
I like the story with the kid. It's not too intrusive, yet leaves tons of possibilities for interpretation. (Note that he doesn't wear shoes.) And it fits the theme of the song, music and lyrics-wise. In the beginning I thought that the colours and lighting don't fit the song, but the more I watch the video, the more it makes sense. Guess that's the MTV effect, where a music video replaces your "own" video of the song. The beginning where the kid looks into the room with the dust in the background is a really great shot. (0:14). Too bad the following shot, the band jumping into action, looks a bit clichéd. But the general rocking out scenes of the band look good (why is tomas wearing a shirt? :P). Only thing I don't like are the close-ups where you see only half of rob's face and the band in the background. Also, the part starting at 3:12 is great, where the band scenes and the story frame blend together. Excellent sequences are where the boy stands at the window, the part with the ticket (has the date a special significance?) and the shot where rob stands there in sort of contemplating epicness (3:48).

I think the Retail version is a lot better than the original. Mainly because the Retail version's synth parts actually sound like piano and not like something trying to sound like piano.

But yeah, about the video. It wasn't bad at all. Maybe just a little too stereotypical. Though the real problem was that sometimes the stuff happening on the screen didn't sync with the music so well. But not bad for your first music video.  ;)

This video pains me to watch.

I honestly don't know anything that I could say that isn't pretty flagrant, so I'll just abbreviate.

1) Cliche.  So cliche that i refuse to put the accent over the e.
2) Rob looks like a combination of Eminem and the backup singer from Linkin Park.  Which, theoretically, isn't bad, but it is in this context.
3) Wtf story?  There's a kid with a ticket in an empty room.  There's not enough of him doing *anything* substantial to call it a story.  It's just a distraction from...
4) You guys are just playing.  A really expensive, long delayed video of you guys with crazy muted/pumped up colors, just playing like you normally would.
5) Gordon doesn't get nearly enough face time.  Or chest time.  Or even silhouette time.  Come on, he's quite sexy; if you guys want to capitalize, start capitalizing on that something fierce.
6) Unnatural lighting.  If that were a REAL warehouse that you were just happening to play in for the fun of it, you guys would be entirely silhouetted out by the windows behind you.  Which would probably be better than this washed out/supercolor... thing.

"To change takes more than to remain."
Truth.  The first "rock video" changes absolutely nothing.

Eh, that was my least favorite part.. it looks so awkward and out-of-place. It's like the director didn't know what to put in that part of the video, so had Rob just stand there. I prefered his jumping and jiving over that uncomfortable stillness and puzzled expression.

Was I the only one who thought the way Rob was "dancing", if you could call it that, was.. unnecessary? I just really, really didn't like that, probably the least favorite part of the video, and why I was a bit disappointed.
Title: Re: Rock Video Closes In
Post by: Torp v2.0 on October 03, 2007, 11:09:28 pm
I'm going to agree with Waruar on this one. The video is rather standard issue. It is basically the band playing, in an abandoned industrial facility. I had hoped for something different. Something more akin to the Cryosleep vid, maybe (which I love). Something which really stands out from the generic mass of rock videos.

That said, it has its moments. The closeups of Rob singing with the band in the background looks good, and isn't something I've seen before. They don't use any cheesy gimmicks like many other bands. It doesn't even play on sex :P (points to not12x.5). I, for one, don't dislike Robs dancing moves, except for some of the stuff he does while not singing (which looks a bit like he doesn't know where to put himself, so he just starts dancing to have something to do).

So, yeah, good first video. I would like to see something less cliche next time, though. And slightly more synching between the music and the stuff happening in the video.

("something less cliche" does translate into "something more risky" in businessspeak, though)

And, Annie: The way Rob dances is actually the same as he usually does on stage, from what I've gathered.

Hm, I think I have to agree. His dancing is goofy, and I understand it's him being himself. Can't fault that. The only thing is it's sort of.. out of place. Like it didn't belong, whether due to the particular song or what I'm not sure.  I've seen his jumping around a little in fan recordings of live gigs ever since he went guitar-less, so I was kind of expecting (and dreading) it.

Spinefarm is not a tiny little record label with no experience.  And MaSu, despite recently becoming a big deal, are not novices to music.  Quit babying them.  A video is a video.  There is absolutely *no* reason why their first video should be subpar.  None.

They don't use any cheesy gimmicks like many other bands.

Except for the dark clothes/eyeliner, industrial warehouse, band just standing and playing, rap/rock-style dancing, zooming in on the guitarist for the guitar solo, lonely lost looking fanboy, and, oh, well... the entire rest of it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Spinefarm had anything to do with the video other than, perhaps, helping to pay for it. They didn't direct the cinematography or concept. And the band's experience with rocking out doesn't make them experts at videos either.

Has anyone ever realized that this is the first video they make? Even if Spinefarm just payed for it all it might not have even mattered. You can throw a shitload of more money into a video and it would still suck. Secondly video making, music or whatever is a learning process. I can imagine the first video you all would make would be eye-pain. So its enough of the bashing now then. Given a few more years and hard work things will improve on this front as well.

My impressions: I'm not to disapointed. I actually was expecting this to be the level of the video but its not bad imo. Most of the 250+ musicvideos I have is of less creative quality then this one. The only thing that bothers me is the Linkin Park look on Robert. Something original next time guys, say a t-shirt with a logo for Jets'n'guns?

So just because it isn't positive, it's no longer an opinion?

There's a difference between constructive criticism (which is what is occurring) and bitching and whining (which is not occurring).

Everybody here is a fan of MaSu. If somebody wants to give input that they intend to be taken as advice by their favorite band for the future, then I think this is the best place for it. I'm really proud of Rob and crew for the job they've done and for their hard work and dedication over the past four or five years that i've been listening to them. But if every single post here was nothing but "OMGZ AWESUM KICKASS BEST VID EVAR!!!11" then things would never move forward.

I thought it was fine. Visually quite nice and the camera work was great. Many bands have a music video where they play in some boring environment. This at least had a cool place MaSu played in. I could nitpick that I don't like the make up on the guys. That reminds me of emo.

In the future videos I'd like too see a song with SID and the video to have videogame references / animations, something with real innovation / storyline ..OR all those in one.

whaaaaat? hahaha, man.

If you can't say anything nice, then middle school therapist isn't the line of work for you.  Last time I checked, the forum here is open for anyone to post on.  But I won't be dragged into that pit of a debate.

If Machinae was making music purely for themselves, then they wouldn't be where they are today.  They are making music for 1) Themselves 2) The Fans 3) Money.  Pretty much in that order.  What's important to remember is that there are many of us who fall into that second category, and we have opinions on the matter.  And, fans will have different opinions, which means that fans need to learn to put up with different opinions.  People who are closed-minded and refuse to tolerate opinions they don't like are called bigots.

I'm pretty sure Gaz is an adult.  In fact, I know Gaz is an adult, because I listen to his voice when he sings and he sounds like an adult.  And I'm pretty sure that he has a thick enough skin to take a little criticism.  Also, I'm pretty sure that MaSu is not just made of Gaz.  In fact, I'm pretty sure that Gaz is only 1/5 of the band.  Of course, I could be wrong about all of that.  I'm not positive.

What I said in my post was called criticism.  I could have been a "pack of bitching children that need to be slapped" and said something like "WTF VIDEO SUX LOLOLO" and linked to meatspin.  But I didn't.  I said *what* I found fault with.  Some of it was entirely opinion based, some was factual, and some was witty comedy that nobody could possibly take as offensive (read: Gordon=sexy).

Here's how golf is scored.  There's an average score, called Par.  The goal that most people go for is to shoot par.  If you are really lucky, you will shoot better than par.  If you do worse than average, you shoot subpar.  Prodigies consistantly rarely shoot par, they're almost always better.  Average people will shoot Par.  And things that are subpar are, well... less than average.

And, I honestly don't think that MaSu is going to raise the bar on modern music.  But, I (and many others hold this belief as well) firmly believe that their earliest works were their best.

So shoot me.  Par on that is two shots.  You just took one.  One shot left!

The video wasn't bad but it just didn't feel like MaSu at all. Mainly due to Linkin Park look and the rest of the band with the lighting made it seem like a gothic band was playing.

Its not that I need every video to be perfect, I just don't feel that the vid said "We Are Machinae Supremacy!" or "We are SID Metal!" if you know what I mean.

Here's how golf is scored.  There's an average score, called Par.  The goal that most people go for is to shoot par.  If you are really lucky, you will shoot better than par.  If you do worse than average, you shoot subpar.  Prodigies consistantly rarely shoot par, they're almost always better.  Average people will shoot Par.  And things that are subpar are, well... less than average.

And, I honestly don't think that MaSu is going to raise the bar on modern music.  But, I (and many others hold this belief as well) firmly believe that their earliest works were their best.

So shoot me.  Par on that is two shots.  You just took one.  One shot left!

your attempt at sounding smart failed on a vast scale.

theres a difference between opinion and pointless bitching and whining, which is what i see the majority of in this thread, particularly by random noobs and old-timers that only post to bitch about everything.

have some fucking consideration for gaz and his feelings ffs, because at the moment the lot of you sound like a pack of bitching children that need to be slapped.

So just because it isn't positive, it's no longer an opinion?

There's a difference between constructive criticism (which is what is occurring) and bitching and whining (which is not occurring).

Everybody here is a fan of MaSu. If somebody wants to give input that they intend to be taken as advice by their favorite band for the future, then I think this is the best place for it. I'm really proud of Rob and crew for the job they've done and for their hard work and dedication over the past four or five years that i've been listening to them. But if every single post here was nothing but "OMGZ AWESUM KICKASS BEST VID EVAR!!!11" then things would never move forward.

I agree. Sure, some of what we've said probably isn't worded the best, including what I said, but I'm pretty sure that we all had the intention of just giving at least a little bit of constructive criticism, even though we may not have stated it that way.

Of course we care what you think about the video. We love it when you like it, and it pains us when you don't. But here are some facts about the TTLG video.

We really wanted to do a video of one of the songs on Redeemer. This was our own choice and we took the decision when we could get some help to do it of some friends. We could keep the cost of the video at a minimum due to this connection and paid for it ourselves.

We had some really nice ideas for the video but had to settle for a simpler one because of the lack of time and money. In the end it became a performance video and we thought that it would work out fine for a first one. The timing for the video was a bit off since we already started to focus on the next album. This is why Spinefarm wasn't involved.

So, what are my thoughts about the video...
Sure, it could have been better. The sync, editing, story etc. But it's a really good video and can be measure up to many other bands videos. We think it's nice to have a proper video that can be passed around to promote the band. And we're already planning the upcoming video for the new album so if we were to release the TTLG video it was now or never.

As I said earlier... We hope that you like it and feel bad if you don't.... but we love that you care so much and have an opinion. That just shows that you really like the music. I can't wait for the bashing of the new album to begin.  ;)

Don't get your hopes up, mister. The promise of a new (and most likely superior) video should be enough.
You know when I was young, we had to play music video as grampa tried to play Elvis songs he didn't know on his accordeon. It wasn't very good, but we were happy, because we were poor, and that was as good as it got.

Next video release simultaneous with the album?

Go ahead and record the video this weekend, and send it in for editting. That way, by the time the album is ready to his the MaSu shop, we should only have a couple weeks left on the video.

Quote
I just don't feel that the vid said "We Are Machinae Supremacy!" or "We are SID Metal!" if you know what I mean.
I know exactly what you mean, and it practically sums up how I feel in general towards the video. It's exciting that MaSu put the video out, and on the surface it isn't a bad video (generic != bad) but it just doesn't quite feel like i'm watching Machinae Supremacy.

Although, to be fair, I suppose a vast majority of MaSu fans have no experience ever seeing the band perform. For years, aside from shoddy recordings of gigs, my image of the band performing has always been mental. So maybe this is Machinae Supremacy, and I've just been wrong? I kind of hope not.

What we need in the next video is some obscure game references, that only fans and/or gamers would understand.
Someone mentioned something about the ticket being numbered "1337", in the TTLG vid - I watched it again and to my dissapointment it wasnt.

Post by: Jaxell on October 04, 2007, 02:51:12 pm
Hmm, interesting thread, here is my two cents.

First off, I think there is a huge failure in understanding stuff in this thread. Like for example, what type of video it should be. If anyone in Machinae Supremacy, for example, would put on a Jets'N'Guns-shirt in the video I would loose pretty much all respect I have for them. But I'm not too worried, because they most likely wont. Its been said before and bears repeating, most of you havent seen Machinae Supremacy Live, so if you wanna stay fans of Machinae Supremacy this is a good chance to see how they perform before you get this crazy idea of them doing cosplay on stage and wanting to make videos where they run around in some C64-world and battle the gianna sisters. It wont happen, get used to it.

As to liking their earliest work. Sure, no problem. I liked it to, but the production quality sucks compared to today. It did make me a fan of Machinae Supremacy though, but what I love most about Machinae is them reinventing themselves all the time. The band is constantly evolving, and seemingly faster than alot of their fans. Sure they like the fans, but if the fans wont accept them making music THEY like and making music they like to make, I honestly dont think they care if they loose a fan or two. Fans like what the band makes, not the other way around, that is how it works. Like it or leave it.

About the video. It has its kinks, but great video all together. The only thing I dont like is the editing, and that is because of the makers not being skilled enough. All in all, they look cool. Great with mostly band shots when making a first video in my oppinion, because I want to see the band.

Just saw the video in HD finally, I'd been watching the smaller versions at work.

I honestly was expecting mostly shots of the band - it was filmed in what, two days? With limited funding, first time video, everyone was just getting their feet wet. But the results are really cool for someone like me, who can't see the band live. So seeing the band in 720p is officially as close to seeing them in person as I've gotten. And I loved it. I was glad to see they didn't try to put on a mask either. They all had the same energy, movements, and style they do in any live clip I've seen. So in MY opinion, that was 100% machinae style.

Anywho, I liked it. Congratulations on all that jaz.

So with that said, whens the next one!? =P
