Guys...

I've been such an avid follower of this game, mainly for the in-game editing...

I don't want to brag about stuff, but I thought I'd share this with you guys... after all, this is where I started getting inspired to create fan trailers, because despite the limitations of the game itself, you could still be free to do whatever you want.. And that in turn gave me inspiration to make films. I just hope it will

I just feel I have a lot to thank for, and to those who have seen my videos... THANKS! smile.gif

You keep posting these films but don't seem to be getting much feed back, why do you think that is? confused1.gif

I liked them. Man, you did pretty good. I always wanted to do machinima, but I never have the patience.

as a quick edit. I would like to say I didnt enjoy the selection of music as much as I enjoyed the actual video.

If you could actually give me an answer to that question, I'd then know why and try even harder to promote these vids.

It won't reach "The Majestic" in terms of standards, but I'm still hoping it will gain enough mainstream attention. I guess people assume it's just another run-of-the-mill machinima that they've seen a thousand times before.

You just answered your own question but I might give you the benefit of the doubt and check it out later. smile.gif

Marney, stop being a dickhead.

I thought the videos were awesome.
Like Tanner said, I wanted to get into them, just don't have the time or know how.

I watched a few of his other ones and thought they were put together well but I just got a bit tired of them. It's not as if I'm telling him they're shit, they're not but I did find them a little too long and that's just my opinion. I do believe he is after peoples opinions and now he has mine.
Democracy eh?

Is there a fifth episode? Wait, no a fourth? It was the third I watched last.

I agree they are a little long. You're entitled to your opinion, but you're also allowed to be polite about something someone's accomplished. You should try building people up instead of tearing them down.

Yeah I know, I can't wait for his warn level to come down it's too quiet round here.

Anyway I said I would watch this latest vid so I'm gonna sit down and watch it with my popcorn the wife brought me back from the cinema the other night and I'll give my comment on it.
djnefilim
It's totally okay guys. I've actually come to a conclusion.

@marney1

I respect your opinion about the videos being too long. But hey, at least it's not 10 minutes of a guy sitting down on a chair looking at the sky. Granted the chance that Youtube would allow more than 10 minutes of video to be uploaded, I would. I actually think I'm cutting down on the storytelling for the sake of the runtime, especially since there always has to be a climactic ending to all my vids. Apart from that, this is supposed to be an action/horror/fantasy/comic-booky type of mini-series, so it's not supposed to be just about things blowing up every second, which I just realized is the complete opposite of "The Majestic."

And I now totally understand that there's a huge audience for it, and maybe people don't really expect to experience something like what I do in a machinima, which could also be a bit unfair for people like me as my works would be overlooked without being given a benefit of a doubt just coz' "the first 5 minutes are boring" and stuff. I'd like to mix a lil' bit of everything in my vids, not just a straight up action fest, as I feel it limits your imagination too much.

So thank you marney1 for letting me understand the lack of feedback. smile.gif And I do mean that sincerely, not being sarcastic or anything.

There are 6 episodes in total, as of the time being. It will finish at 8, since the last "sin"... Wrath, will be a two-parter. smile.gif

Right dj, I just watched it and it wasn't too long this time. I was just about to stop watching then the chase through the tunnel began so yeah not bad. (This popcorn is stale and Wolverine is looking at me from the side of the bag).
Just out of interest how long did that take to make?
djnefilim
a day... most of the vids in the series took me about a day/a day and a half. smile.gif

Fuck me, you must really enjoy it then.

I can design two central heating systems in that time.

I thought you'd been on the brink of bannination for some time now, and it never seemed to bother you. What happened to the "fuck it if I get banned Stoic" we all loved?

Psy and I had a heart to heart.

I've been on the brink of banage for some time, he took the time to let me know that I have been discussed as a topic in relation to the new site and that I need to tone my shit down. I'm driving away new members.
