Post The muli-medium mega movie rules and getting started thread!

Ok, the rules are very simple;

1. Anyone can contribute any scene from LBA1 made in any medium whatsoever.

2. Has to be uploaded to youtube in the best quality you can and marked as ¨creative commons¨ to allow others to use it.

2a. Please don't include background music - it will be much easier to edit everything together latter if theres no music already there. (if you want to do a version with and without music though, thats fine)

2b. You should also tag it ¨LbaMegaMovie¨ so we can easily find all contributions.

2c. Optionally, tag it with other relevant stuff such as the medium or mood of your scene. (Stopmotion, silly etc)

3. If you believe your scene belongs after one already uploaded by someone else, then ¨replay¨ to that video with your own.

And..
Thats it

A few more notes though:
Although our goal is to make a complete movie, dont be scared of doing your own version of preexisting scenes if you have a alternative idea for it.
Have alternative versions or ¨paths¨ though a movie is pretty cool imho.

If anyone needs any technical help, let me know or ask below

====
Useful references and resources:


LBA 1 cutscenes;

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5656512/AllL...enes_fixed.avi
(one video with all of them, Divx format)

CamStudio - Good tool for recording your screen, should work with both LBA games.

VirtualDub - Good software for file conversion, cropping, and some basic editing.

(more here: http://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=16044)

Ok, once theres some scenes uploaded I will maintain a list of links below:


Titles -

CrudeFanspresentTitle (DF),LessCrudeRippleTitle (MatheusMK3)

Intro -

FlyingToTwinsun (DF)(updated),
Dinofly Lands Till Before Explosion (DF)

Dream -

Escape -

?

I figured the flying to Twinsun part could come before a introduction like the game has ("Twinsun is a relatively new planet...")

Remember, you can all submit new scenes, or alternatives to these, short, long, whatever

I think I understand everything, but anyways, I prefer to ask a pair of questions for preventing from doing something wrong.

So... we can use the technique that we want, right? Even if I want to make a 8bit inspired scene, or put one scene draw after another with a comic style (with balloons and stuff), it would be ok?

We can add to the scene some things or emotions that never happened in the real game? For example, at the beggining of the game, making Twinsen get sick for being surrounded by trash, or making him give a big hug to Zoe when he returns at home.

I'd love to make the cutscene when Twinsen is in the middle of an ice storm, he gets tired and then a cute white animal saves him. I always wondered what was all that about

Sure
I really hope we get lots of diversity, so any style goes - both simple or complex.

Absolutely. I think the movie would be a bit "dry" if it was just a verbatim copy of the game. Certainly add emotion, or remove boring bits.

We have a bit of a democratic system here that if anyone adds something someone else doesn't like (Twinsen goes on a killing spree), someone else can just do a alternative scene

Good old ice-bear.

Then we've got a lot of freedom. Great! In that case, I'm starting with a "simple" Flash video of the escape at the beginning of the game It's going to take me a lot of time, but I will eventually make reports of the status of the scene.

Thanks Darkflame
