I'm really thinking that everyone is halted at the 'family guy' part of the explanation and not getting what I really meant. It really isn't anything to do with Family Guy at all, I just used that to explain the prospect of how it is laid out, as in we voice act an actual fanparody, like how Evangelion Redeath is, cutting it together as such and doing the legwork to write a plot and assemble voice actors and such, and then allow for semi-related side jokes. What we would do though is have the asides LIKE Family Guy does, not actual Family Guy audio or ideas or whatever unless someone thought Family Guy clips would work, but that would be entirely their choice.
Granted this is simultaneously limiting because it must fit the parody in the sense of a reference, but also it can be a fun challenge to fit something in the writing depending on the clip. For example, if you consider all the various clips in AMVS4, you could rather easily do an aside statement to every single one of them. Granted it's just an idea, it would have to be played around with, but honestly, I'm all for a separate side project that's actually a fanparody. I mean I've kind of come to terms with the fact that EVERY CLIP I do is basically a small fanparody, not really an AMV. Even my musical ones aren't AMV-based but parody-based.
Either way, like I said, it could just be a separate project with people doing their own level of involvement. It could even take a couple years in small increments of work if necessary so that AMVS isn't set aside. I'm all for it, and if you're an aspiring voice actor InspZenigata, that works well. Really the only thing I'm worried about is if it's done, people getting egos about either A) Their voice, or B) Their jokes. If something isn't recorded right or their voice doesn't work, it just means they can't be used for certain roles, and if a joke just isn't as funny as it could be, the biggest parody-killer is someone settling for something. While I love the AMVS work, there are jokes that can and should have been refined and made stronger. The point of a team really is to refine everything from multiple perspectives, and AMVS is kind of like half-team, half-individual, while an actual parody project would be entirely team-based, so a shift in perspective would be necessary to make it function, especially when organized online. If I'm not mistaken, the crews for This Is Otakudom and Evangelion Redeath and such were friends who met up for real to do most of the work. Technology is MUCH more readily available now, and for much cheaper, so it would have to be a "Commitment to Awesome" so to speak from those involved
So considering the idea that AMVS5 would NOT be the fanparody, and continue being an AMV Hell style project, would those of you who didn't like that idea be interested in a fanparody as a separate project? Studying things like YuGiOh Abridged, DBZ Abridged and the original fanparodies would be a good foundation for determining what we want to do. The reference to using Family-Guy style 'cut to unrelated clip after being talked about by the characters' was my projecting a concept that hasn't been done in fanparodies before. Steam did it sort of, doing more of a Tarentino-style jump-between-plots, but this would be more fast-paced.
And as for the censored version, I am torn between both versions, I like the original more because censorship is censorship, but I did everything in my power to make it as funny as I could. Sadly I don't like the last secion, I really wish we could have kept in those 'fucks' in the background or I had more time to re-assemble the narrative on top of them so it was clearer. For what it is though, I'm glad we could get it through. I just hope that the One Piece clip doesn't lose anything from the bleeps or whatever.
