CNN Globalist Pictures Presents, the most terrifying motion picture of the Millennium...




CNN Globalist Pictures Presents, the most terrifying motion picture of the Millennium...

The Russian Invasion driven Trumpocalypse was only the beginning.
They came from everywhere.
A death cult has arisen from their parents basements to enact a terrifying propaganda campaign.
The roof tops above and the cellars below infested by swarms of nighttime bloggers.
Millions of writhing seething slithering political memes oozing out of the mire to feed on liberal paranoia.
Psychosexist cartoons bent on warping your reality debunk the gender gap myth.
Global telecommunications completely over-run by diabolical pop up ads divert you from the reality you once knew.
Madness runs rampant in the streets as savage satire attacks your imagination.
Not even your Roomba vacuum is safe from these blood thirsty hackers.
You try to scream, but you've been blocked by rogue parental filters.

Troll twits tweet your Twitter full of twisted tall tales.
Intensely insane indoctrination instantly infects your Instagram.
Fallacious fake news falsehoods fester forever in your phony Facebook.
WikiLeaks woos your wee ones with wretchedly wicked wisdom.
Pompous politicians prank the paparazzi and peaceful protestors alike.
Bots bitch in your in Blogger while bombarding it with bloated bull#.
Myspace maliciously re-manifests from Rupert Murdoch's madhouse and melts your medulla oblongata until your brain bleeds right out of your eyeballs!
Unless you've been celebrating CNN's collusive new cold war centered corporate crony coverage, brace yourself for a mandatory trip to the mental mortuary once you've witnessed...

MEMEDEMIC II:
MEMEGEDDON!
Rated-X
Brought to you by CNN.
Heart patients not admitted. Live ER first responders will be standing by inside each theater showing.


This is my first film project / the first time I've touched Sony Vegas since 2010.

The 'fake' trailer is my meme, but for it to work its also got a dozen other memes which help set it off.

I'll post direct download links, and the extended preview edition version (much different layout and multiple tunes instead of the one) later.

I've never cultivated a social media presence (besides ATS), so I'd truly appreciate if you'd post this around so it gets seen. I'm worried Infowars is so inundated with emails today they wont notice this.

I wanted another day to post-process it but had to get on with the rendering.

Note the script I pretty much wrote back in December to stoke my "It Came From The Internet: FAKE NEWS!" thread. Surreal prophecy it turned into all things considered!

Everything I used:

Vegas (trial edition)
Paint.NET (free GNU)
NCH Voxel
en.savefrom.net...
Hand Brake (free GNU)

AND (for the animated gif):
ezgif.com
PhotoScape

I noticed there are endless guide videos these days on GooTube. I pulled up one for how to make aged photo effects in Paint.NET, and another for a masking detail in Vegas I needed refreshing on.

I made a lot of little films back in the day (see my sig). But whatever you're trying to figure out what hurdle you just need to figure out how to search for a guide each step in youtube.

THANKS!

Memes are the new propaganda posters from WW2. They started off as innocuous forms of humor but have now morphed into ways of promoting certain political agendas thanks to the help of the MSM and political elite bringing them into the mainstream political conversation.

They're there to dumb people down and to be uninformed because memes are the most simplistic form of communication and most will agree with them if they fit with preconceived notions.

It's easier to read memes than it is to study something in depth. Dumbing America down one meme at a time.

Pictures are worth a thousand words! Ever hear that one?

The dumbing down of America has nothing to do with meme's but our Progressive educational system that was instituted 50 years ago to dumb us down!

But hey, if you believe it's the meme's more power to ya! roflmao

Be awesome if you took the cash IIB! I had a hard time with the deep dark voice at times. Sounded a little muddled to me. Other than that fantastic!

Propaganda posters seemed harmless at the time, political memes are the same today in my opinion, and notice I differentiated between political memes and normal ones.

I think our poor education has facilitated our attraction to this form of propaganda, that and BS drama too.

Memes are fine until they are used to promote a certain ideology then it turns into propaganda.

Essentially every political poster that has ever existed 'was' a "meme".

Yet not every meme is an advertisement, nor is every advertisement a meme.

Memes begin 'become' with the Internet. They aren't defined by technology or a lack of it.

Memes are like genes: they spread, infect', mutate, evolve. Like ideas. It could be said they're the 'point' where ideas and communications and behaviors 'meet'.

That old "wassup" thing I think it was Budweiser started, that was a meme.

"Bunny ears" is a meme. But memes aren't inherently about humor either, as the "peace sign" is also a meme.



Therefore, increasing sophistication of communications doesn't inherently equate to backwardsness.

While humor is widely understood as a key benchmark metric of intelligence. Note that I'm concerned about liberals whom talk about being "High Information" (more highly socially engineered / indoctrinated is the more accurate reality) yet are collectively showing signs of an inability to appreciate or even tolerate comedy. To me THAT'S a dangerous trend.

So then there's the form of communication known as propaganda. Propaganda merely being the science of (typically mass scale, but now exclusively) persuasion and / or diversion.

So if something divests from truth, or distorts it, in order to guide influence and the like, then that is propaganda.

If something is meant to persuade it is also propaganda. Therefore, all advertising is Propaganda. But does promotion equate to bad? When you sell your self to a person place or thing you're interested in you're engaging in propaganda. That's right, pick up lines are propaganda. And them all the entire category itself is a meme as old as our species. Genetically innate traits: humans as agents of persuasion.

That's a tricky one as persuasion can be for or against some thing.

At this point it can be argued that essentially every form of human communication is borderline essentially 'propaganda', if we wanted to split hairs.

What to do with that, how to judge the 'goodness' or the 'badness' of a item of communication (er propaganda) well the intention of each specimen could be judged by the intention. Yet as they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions!

Aside from ethics, perhaps to define each thing more about what it truly is, what it truly was meant to be, is the better mode of assessment for most of the day to day this and that. Ergo, whether or not something is more about se satire or criticism than it is about influence. And with that is it not possible to crucify some thing without promoting some other thing in the process?

Yeah that one came to mind and I checked and it was definitely doable. Of course I can't neglect to include dystopian elements even in my little horror film, but the best part is I've been seeing that actual argument in CNN's (the Institution') defense: 'OMG all CNN is is people and you can't go after CNN because you hurt them'. Been seeing it since the fake news war kicked off. I saw it just in the last week even!

Of course the dark truth angles of the parody goes double since the blood of millions of dead caused by the Imperialist War Machine is just as much on their hands as anybody elses (even more than the defense contractors by my estimations).

I found better voice changer software and redid the narration audio so now everyone can understand all of it (even on phones):

What no Grindhouse cinema fans around here?


Trump goes to war with CNN

Yeah I'm worried about that one (and a couple other good ones).

I doubt I'll have much competition in originality, as I wrote my own damn movie.

But his 'professional look', yeah I'm pinched there.

The other thing I'm worried about is the duration. Note that memes arent inherently just a picture with funny big bold words added to it, or a 15 second spoof edit of a clip from some Hollywood movie. I call those micromemes. I could have trimmed my macromeme down to only about 2 minutes if I ran with just the narration, no micromemes. But it wouldn't tell the story either, would be pure dark satire no lulz, etc. CNN acting like they'll be murdered because people are goofing on them is silly (not to mention the original wrestling clip, the 'fight' depicted, was scripted stagecraft. Trump wasnt even landing real blows. He was an old fart already then. But the going ballistic about it and etc well now its all out over the top, bastards. So it ran with having the 12 micromemes I had managed by the time I had to shift totally to the main piece. So it could go either way, that I didn't just do some 20 second or two minute whatever, went that extra mile, could benefit. Or its too long in their view. Short and simple could win over the rollercoaster ride....

There wasn't exactly clear guidelines, or specifications, except for "all content must include infowars.com". Most I've seen havent.

Alex also mentioned he wants to see stuff that "Exposing CNN as a terrorist organization, as liars, as scum, as trash.". Aside form the Hitler edited script pieces, not really any I've seen have done much more than just rip on them, call them fake news type stuff. So on this score MEMEGEDDON is solid. Here is another reason I needed at least somemicroemes included. I had 10 more micromemes spooled up, one of them with "CNN" dumpster diving with appropriate captions. But I scoured Youtube and my own archives for at least an hour for a good clip of someone dumpster diving, but the few that did have potential teh cameras were jumping all over the damn place. Youtube inundated with these 'professional dumpster diver' people POV videos of going out dumpster diving LOL.

I actually had prepared about 5 minutes of news clip slices that lays out the whole story of the CNN vs. Trump pissing match, and other key moments since the campaign relevant to my script, and another version of the piece with 3 separate segments instead just sliver of the news clips segment mashed into one with the micromemes segment & sick narrative psychobeat segments, three music tunes instead of just the psychobeat. But oh my getting my PC all setup to run video and gather raw materials, hadn't touched Sony Vegas in 6 years... So I wasn't able to release it at the same time. But I will it wont be that hard at this point but I basically didnt sleep all weekend thru Tues. so was like F it. Since they didnt announce the winners YET even, ya I should have already done it.

Execution wise we both nailed it. A lot of people probably be able to fully appreciate what I made due to unfamiliarity with the vintage genre: It's a "Grindhouse" action/horror 'fake trailer'. Grindhouse were the campy B List and X Rated etc "Exploitation" type flicks back in the 70's. The theaters that played them were called "Grindhouses". "Exploitation" the expression for their methods of still trying to make crappy scripts with low budgets and bad actors come out as still being entertaining. The various over the top "exploits" included things like slapstick, gore, 'Dirk Diggler' type porn, violence, etc. Not all of the movies they played were weirdo. Clint Eastwood's biggest films were "Spaghetti Westerns" which is widely held as being a aspect of Grindhouse.

But then the cold truth is most of the absolutely worst films of that era were Grindhouse too. And here's where my trailer concept is the whoop for this particular CNN melodrama. You see what is fun about the awful movies from the Grindhouse is they'd take the crappiest movies and the trailer would make them look AWESOME. In hindsight its as if the whole point of it all was to justify making the trailers. I say they should have done shock cinema trailer marathons instead of play half the movies. Maybe they did!?! Today there are dozens upon dozens of trailer compilation VHS and DVD's etc that have been produced over the years, and they're a lot of fun to watch. The general theme is intense soundtrack, descriptions of the movie plots etc blown way out of proportion. Making outlandish claims about how important or shocking or whatever the crap films were supposed to be. SO when I look at this whole surreal MSM 'label everyone else fake news and scream McCarthyist mania', it reminds me of the Grindhouse trailers. Which I why in my "Double Feature" expose I opened each Feature with a fake trailer script. And one became a reel "fake trailer" this week.

...
My impression is that guy is a film professional whom is expert with the Adobe Suite. I grew up on Paint Shop Pro shareware, and when I eventually tried Photoshop I gasped at how tedious every little thing is in comparison. Then when I made They Want Your Soul my first attempt at film anything, a buddy suggested Sony Vegas you can run free trial for a month. And oh it was a breeze I picked it right up and rushed out TWYS in 6 days.

Later on I knew Adobe stuff is where its at in raw from scratch content creation, and tried it...

And it was every bit as tedious as the other comparison. Just trying to mix up a tiny video real quick, I hated it.

So I never messed with it again. Looking back I'm thinking the way would be run Adobe to create raw content, and then drop all the renders into Vegas for the editing etc.

Then again I could never afford $800 full licenses on Vegas or Adobe when I was active.

Eventually I had to reinstall Windoze and lost the working Vegas I had. So then I couldn't even dabble with projects in between my ridiculously busy life that pulled me away from politics drama. Doing film projects, the increasingly sophisticated documentaries I had in the works in 2010, writing them, researching while breaking news alters the script daily with some of them I had developing, then the actual editing type stuff, and all the other IIB stuff I was doing (like ATS), while trying to REALLY self-teach how to use the video programs to do pro grade content generation, argh. It just got to be I needed a team, in particular a video + graphics person of the expert pro grade. So then last year I decided that to write as many pieces around here I could I needed to avoid trying to get my video stuff going again. Cranked out a lot of epic scale threads that are ready to be made into documentaries. It's just too bad I wont be able to do them as I was only supposed to get sucked back into politics for the summer last year.

No. I dont 'have' reddit. I just barely have twitter recently. Loathe Facebook. And the way 4chan is laid out makes no sense to me at all.

It says posted " by theantidilluvian".

The only posts by that person are the meme uploads in my Youtube account the past week (like all of them)!

Hilarious! Whoever you are I appreciate you posted my stuff around for me, but call it a hunch old Ante might be a tad annoyed.
