Third Impact - This Project is Dead!

Postby themaan » Sun Dec 05, 2004 7:30 pm

Third Impact is now ready to move onto it's official thread phase. The complete mix is done and the editors have been chosen. Tracks are ready and a tracklist is up. Final dates are set and everyone can get working. To see if you made the cut and are in the video, please go to the Third Impact Website. The website also has all the technical aspects and final dates you need to know if you are part of the project.

Please remember to make your video more artsy and dramatic. This is the tone of the video and I would like to keep it that way. As for Fly Me To The Moon (Aki Jungle Remix) I'm sure you can pull off a nice effectsy high paced actiony thing. Heh.

Ooh, for your tracks, please contact me. I will be sending the tracks through email to everyone who has an anime selected. Please contact me with your anime if it says Unknown in the anime coloum beside your name or you will not recieve your track.

So far we have one back-up editor, DoKool. If anyone wants to be a backup editor, please contact me at themaan666@hotmail.com.

Anyway, good luck to everyone involved and hope you guys have fun!

Alright banners, yaay! Now that the project is officially up-and-running. Anyone involved may put either of these banners in their signature.

If you are going to link these pictures then please link to http://thirdimpact.4t.com. There are still a couple of you that I need confirmation on your anime from. I will try and get in contact with you. Keep in mind, if you don't reply I may have to automatically remove you from the tracklist. Don't stress though, you'd have to completely ignore me for a few weeks for that to happen.

Well, if it makes you feel better, I'm glad you made an uber small version. I hardly have enough room for my own videos anymore. :wink:

Just finished ripping my footage. Maybe I'll start editing this weekend, if I get all my obligations done first (or if I'm feeling suicidal :P ). I'll definitely let y'all know when I have a beta, though that won't be for a while.

Just wanted to make an update, as I'm about halfway done with my track and hope to have a full beta out by the end of this week. I took transitions into consideration and did some hefty frame-by-frame editing on the transition-out, so I hope y'all will like it. :P

I also decided to use Program from the Animatrix instead of Jubei-chan. Sorry for the late notice. :shiftyeyes:

Alright, well, glad to see you're all gettin started and stuff. Just too Jasper, it's okay to change but ya, kinda late notice and all, but it's alright. Ooh, and I like your banner a lot better than mine. Heh.

Beta.

The segment is still heavily under construction. I'm currently really dissatisfied with it for the following reasons:

1. I can't seem to get the pacing right. You can tell by all the holes that I need to even out the pacing a bit to make the story more fluid.

2. How can I end the video without breaking the story? I threw the zoom-out clip at the end so it can act as the transition, but now I have trouble making the story connect. There are two things I can do now: either move the clip back and make a new transition (:?), or make the segment less story-based by adding in another anime.

3. To me, the video as a whole seems... well, kinda mundane. And rushed. Here I am, rambling on about keeping the story fluid when my choice of editing style pushes the "story" element into the backseat anyway. Can anyone who hasn't seen Program really tell what's going on here besides two samurai duking it out? Maybe I should have done something besides trying to tell a 5-minute story in under a minute. :|

Any suggestions? Consolations? :(

Except for the parts that are currently blank, I like how it is. :)

I'd recommend having stuff move to the notes of the brass a little more, since that (in my opinion) would look great.

EDIT: I saw Program a while ago, and I'd recommend the part where she breaks his sword and half, etc. to end it.

Alright, watched that beta Jasper-Isis, gotta say, I did like it. But I agree with you, there's something missing. Oh, and I liked your idea for the transition, but it's gonna look really weird because Katsumi is using DBZ ( :? ) and the sudden switch from AMG to DBZ will be quite strange. But it was an awsome idea, and if you have some DBZ...

Anyway, great beta and I can't wait to see how it turns out, as far as plot, it's honestly a little hard to see. Well, it's hard to see the plot in the original anime anyway :P I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance, I'll keep thinking about it and try to come up with some ideas or something. In the main time, good luck. May I suggest rewatching Program for some inspiration?

The AMG footage was just a stand-in to show how the transition would work. The layer that shows up on the roof is going to be the beginning of Katsumi's segment.

It looks like I'll either be getting rid of that transition (by rearranging the footage) or bringing in a new anime. (Mononoke Hime possibly? The setting is similar, time-wise.)

Maverick: you're right about the brass. I'll try to move the more dramatic pans to those areas.

_____

EDIT: I noticed that the project has a "Part One" and "Part Two." Will the project be physically separated into two parts? Or it is still continuous?

EDIT again: Just realized from the time listings that the project will indeed be in two files. In that case, can themann post a large picture of our logo? Or tell me the font name. It might look nice in a bit of a strobe for the drums at the beginning.
