The video is a very good rough draft. Heres my personal constructive criticism
Personally, I would refrain from using the black and white photos(the big german ufo is usable though!), as they would likely turn off the casual
viewer. Im a big UFO buff, and I dont feel they fit. I would also throw in a few little video clips. Maybe a very brief quip of someone talking
(disclosure proj?), and I also think a brief 2-3 seconds of the more amazing footage from the NASA tether incident. If possible, I would also throw
in the fact or idea that many big gov't around the world have released their UFO files, and ask what are we waiting for? Demand the truth!
I thought it was great but does need to have a little more length to it. I'd say put stuff in there from ancients to even bases on the moon. If you
do make another that has more to it, I'll send it to everyone I know...
I think (as far as getting it to broadcast), keeping it to 30 seconds is necessary.
I'd say, as a community develop a 5-10 minute video, and then make 2 or 3 30 second spots of cherry picked material. I'd also avoid getting into
many specific cases, but on a "master site" have links for those who want to begin the long and arduous task of research.
I also think advertising ATS would be like painting a big target on this site. You'd either see it turn into 50 times the clusterf* it is now, or
see it disappear all together.
Lastly, if a few of you can pull the organization together to start "funding" this, I'd be more than happy to put on a few shows with all of the
profits going to said organization.
I posted some of what I already have done and planning in the old thread. Now abandoned it seems. I have more unreleased video productions, but I have
been trying to get funding to do this and much more for years.
Should I re-post on this thread too? (cut-past) Tah Dahhh!
OK Here it is!
I have thought about this for some time and have produced similar media for such recently in 2008 for MUFON. So we have some ability there I
Time provided, and some creative but intelligent conceptual I would love to produce such videos and media unassociated, and, I will. Current projects
have me otherwise alternately focused unfortunately.
My associates and I have been working raising funds for a major UFO reporting and information site already since 2007, and it looks like we will be
able to fund that project next year. Then we will sling such media into the proverbial fan.
We are already planning on producing viral videos that serve the purpose of disclosure and joining with other groups like Mufon and similar active
reporting sites to up the anti on disclosure by media saturation and generally informing the public. We plan to also provide media and 3D simulations
to news and reporting organizations, while teaching other orgs and providing a venue and new tools for them to produce their own media. Teaching to
fish, so to speak.
Other programs planned are associated site programs to distribute ideas like this;
But time is running out, and the constraints are still tight for this. Resistance will be quiet and swift through the media, so thanks to the great
spirit for the internet.
We have many concepts, and art ready to publish for the cause, but no funds yet. So, to that end I am going back to work on this very fund raising
project now so must push off and back to that.
Keep the faith, and use your creative and conceptual to do it. There is little stopping of honest, imaginative and good ideas.
Your video is really good. What program did you use? FC pro?
A slew. Here's the list. It was a full time production a friend and I did in a matter of a few weeks. The friend helped with the 3D, but all
production was my own desktop. I even composed the sound track music so it would be original.
Adobe Premiere CS3 Pro
Photoshop CS4 Extended
Autodesk MAYA 8.0
3D Studio Max 7
If I had FC it would have been a bit easier for the final edit, but I have not found enough support in the 3D software and aftereffects for a full
Apple-based production. Too bad. Apple has sweet hardware. I would need $25K for just the software to start producing with Macs.
Still, using PC-based gives so much legacy support and resource that it just doesn't work for CGI and FX based productions with Apple gear. Standard
editing with source video is easy in Final Cut, but I still need Adobe tools and Apple is not getting along with Adobe now. To bad.
I would like much more cross-plat support everywhere. Proprietary fences are bad for creativity flow.
For all you budding editors and producers out there, you will need to know that it is much more complex to do a "commercial TV" piece than you
Editing is the fun part, but planning and conceptual, rights contracting and securing legal footage to use and many other things can turn you off and
you will find it is much more work than just hoisting clips from the internet and slapping them together with music in your iTunes folder.
In the end, it's always better to do it right and make it legal. Then you can show it in more places than YouTube. This can go to network TV as it
is. Original is in HD too.
Don't want to discourage, but we do want more serious material like this. So have a go at it.
With funding, we have the possibility of doing this for many media venues. Disclosure is a state of mind for the masses, not a state owned
We can boot strap this type of knowledge to many millions with just a bit of financial support. This piece cost only a couple thousand dollars in
time, not counting the CGI we did for almost nothing. Easier said than done. But very doable.
