2015 Community Montage!

Hello everyone, this is Jim2102. So I came up with a cool idea before 2015 ends. So a while back, a player by the name of crazyjay made a battlefield 1942 Montage called project alpha, and basically, it was a "community" Montage where players sent him clips of their Epic kills on servers.

So, I thought we could make a community Montage for 2015. Spread this around! And of course, you will need some clips. You can send clips of medic, engineer, zooka, assault, sniper, dogfighting, etc...

The clips can be sent to: ytclanjim2102 at gmail dot com

Also, when you send them, be sure to say your in-game name in the email, so that I'll know what clips are who's. Also, let me know if the clips are to big to send via gmail, and I'll find another way for you to send them to me. Hope you guys are excited for this!!! big_smile -Jimmy

Re: 2015 Community Montage!

Seems like a nice idea. So you want to finish editing till the end of 1015?

He became King of England in 1016.




SPOILERS BELOW:

Serebro2064 accidentally typed "1015" instead of "2015".  I thought it would be funny to reference an event from that time so I mentioned King Cnut's coronation.  My attempt at humour was not understood.

It's an interesting project but it requires a huge amount of resources and time, as well as a coordinated team of video, sound and graphic editors if you even think of making that deadline (end of 2015), which seems far too unrealistic. If you plan on doing everything by yourself you should reconsider and find a few people that are interested in helping you with the editing aspect of the project, because that is the most challenging part.

It's something I've always wanted to do and I like your idea, however you are being far too vague with this. You need to clear cut your ideas in a more concise manner and give more details. You said you wanted people to film their frags on various servers. What format will the movie /short film take? How long will it be? Will it be a frag highlights movie with only public actions? Will it be infantry only, tanks only or all those aspects of the game at once?

Why not incorporate war/mixwar/PCW actions as well? Or clips from tournaments and cups? Personally I think you would gain more in adding war actions on top of public actions. Public actions make it look too easy, and there will be no wow factor if the only clips you have in the movie are easy public hero shots. Everyone can do that. I've done it. You've done it. Doesn't prove much and certainly makes the whole quality of the video pretty low IMO.

The best thing would be to make a frag highlights movie with the best war actions of 2015, and release the video sometime in 2016. Now that would be a video I would like to see, and it's scandalous that the BF-League hasn't been making those kind of movies. I mean in my eyes it would be a huge plus for them and would help them advertise the League. A best of type movie of the best war actions of 2015, in the regular season or off-season playing custom maps would be pretty cool.

Also the editing will have to match the actions shown in the montage. Hopefully if you mix war actions with public actions, you will have someone who is very comfortable with professional video and sound editing software like Sony Vegas do the editing. No Windows Movie Maker and boring ass fonts and transitions! That shit is trash. Make it look professional. As a potential viewer (and maybe even new player to BF1942) I want to look at something that will make me want to try out the game and maybe even join a clan and compete. The advertising potential for this is huge, just think about it.

Finally, the players will be having issues sending their raw AVIs because those are huge if you film for only a couple of minutes (a couple of GB), at least with Fraps on 60 FPS and full size with sound the clip size is ridiculous. So yeah maybe provide a time frame for clips, i.e. no clips longer than one minute, so that the file transfer is easier, especially for players with a slower connection.

But yeah, just my 2 cents, and no disrespect as I've said it is a great idea but you need to provide more details about what you're trying to do.

Re: 2015 Community Montage!

As i answered you on aX forum, it's a good idea.
But do you make a montage for each community like the title show ?
or the title should be "2015 communities montage!" smile ?

Anyway, i sent you my videos (zook and plane) by PM on aX.

Re: 2015 Community Montage!

LL22, thx for sending your videos smile

Basically, what I mean by community, is the community is all bf1942 players who record vids of epic kills, and once I have a lot, I'll put them all into one big Epic Montage, and then post it on YouTube. I think I'm going to call it "Battlefield 1942 Community Montage of 2015"

Re: 2015 Community Montage!

Update: I have a lot of clips from 4 players already, and I will start editing the Montage on January 1st, 2016. So if you want to be in it, send some clips before the end of 2015!

Video would be shorter and better if you would cut out your and moon's moments, because they're not impressive... All other moments were fun to watch.

BladeRunner, thanks! big_smile

Minnesota, I tried to include everymap and make the video match the time length of the song, so that's why I captured some kills, plus, my frags aren't that bad, but thanks for your opinion tongue
