Short AMVs for Short People: The Burial

Postby Garylisk » Sat Oct 23, 2004 11:46 am

It's dead, and I accept that.

Check the web page for more info.

Basically, due to the fact that not very many people are interested, and that the project itself is making no progress due to there not being enough editors, or the editors not submitting their vids, etc... I'm killing the project.

Editors have until October 29th to get their videos they've made sent in to me. On October 30th, I will make a DivX encode of the project, and that'll be it.

After 2 years, I am tired of this project and all of its problems.

Thanks to all who tried to help make the project work. You know who you are. :up:

well this sucks, I was planning to do several more videos. I have ideas for like 20 of the tracks with a couple of them completely planned out in my head. I guess if you really want to quit there's nothing I can do about it, but couldn't you wait until May like you originally said? I thought you wanted to show it at the next AWA.

Well here's the thing... for 2 years, I've had a lot of people who were like "Yeah cool, that's cool sounding, I'll do it!" and then they don't. And then those who DO do it are left thinking "Gee, I wonder when the project is actually gonna get finished." and it just goes around and around in circles.

I'm just really dissapointed that now that we have an FTP to use, and poeple can easily get their vids to me, they are still not uploading their vids, even though they are done. The FTP has been up since the 4th of October or so, and I've hat a grand total of 2 videos uploaded to the server, and no sign of anyone else giving a damn. Most people haven't even emailed me for the username and password.

And then, even supposing all the finished tracks get uploaded and we get tha tout of the way, new track requests will have to be filled and completed, and such... but again, I've not recieved but one email and a couple IM's on AOL.

OK, now, I'm not expecting my mailbox to overflow with requests, and I'm not expecting all the editors who have finished their vids to be rushing to upload their finished AMVs, but you know, there haven't even been enough of those events happening to call it a handful. More like a scattered few incidents.

If you don't see why this is discouraging, something is wrong.

And on top of that, I was mega-depressed last night about an issue I won't even bring up because I ended up making a total ass of myself last night/earlier today, and just figured "You know what, this is so ridiculous, since this is supposed to be fun, but instead, I'm beating myself up over it."

That being said, do you really think I should wait until May? I mean, I'm fairly easy to sway one way or the other.. call me flakey, I guess... but honestly, when I look ahead, I just don't see the project even being done come May. Even if I do release a shortened tracklist. Even if I do set the deadline and get on editors' asses on an individual basis... it just seems like there's not enough interest...

..And yet, every time I bring up the subject of the project, people say it sounds fun.

So I dunno what to think.

What do you all think?

Personally, I would love to continue working on the project. Like I said, I have a bunch of ideas that I wanted to do for it and have already planed out.

If you still wanted to show it at AWA, there's plenty of time for more videos to get finished so there's no need to stop yet. Even if we aren't able to fill every slot, we can at least get a few extra in.

I understand that it's frustrating and all, but please keep it open for at least a couple more months. If you're absolutely fed up and don't want to continue though, I wouldn't mind takeing over for you. :wink:

OK well, due to the response here, as well as some correspondance in private, I've decided to keep the May 1st deadline, but I am still very skeptical of the project reaching completion.

Go ahead and prove me wrong, guys.

I'll finish my videos as well.

I understand people can be aggrivating; you just gotta keep moving.

Godspeed, to Gary and the editors. :up:

I'm glad you decided to keep the project around, i wish i had any talent instead of just the stuff, and the fact that i have absolutely no time to learn, or i'd be doing as much as my inspiration with the track would allow. if it doesnt work out as well as you hoped, just dont concern yourself over and say "NO MORE!!" just let people finish as they do, so that there's a slim chance someone will work on their videos slowly, but this is just one fan's opinion.

Before you started to bury it, i sent you a PM of videos i would have made. If you still think my ideas are good enough i'm willing to make them and certainly send them in before the end date. And if you have songs that you want inserted and think they might fit me, feel free to ask. You can usually also find me on one of the messengers if you want to talk, or kick me into speeding things up or just to chat. I'm really psyched by this project since i love that CD. So please let me know, i would love to work on this.

Undertow - Excellent. I will try to get ahold of you on AIM sometime. I haven't been online much these days, but am still trying to keep up with the project as it creeps along.

Mods: Please lock this thread, just leaving the normal "Ressurection" thread alive.

Those interested in the project: Post in the other thread, not this one.
