Video ideas for WAR?

Post#1 » Fri Feb 13, 2015 11:57 pm

I am thinking of doing a video where I play my character in combat...
But I'm unsure of what the concept should be like - only scenes where I battle/kill (everyone can and does that), doing something extra special (yet limited) or anyone else who has nice ideas regarding warhammer online and video recording? What makes you tick for someone's else creation?

All ideas regarding video recording are appreciated!

What u want from u video?

ps - I think "pvp" ( rvr event or sc) movie is so boring in reality ROR. But you can make promo video.

Some examples.

Anyway, at fist u need materials. Recording, recording and recording.

I've fraps'd and uploaded a lot of videos in WAR, but my last from the live server is my favorite because I only put on clips I thought a viewer would enjoy, and I kept them all very short so the video flows nicely scene to scene. Half a dozen scenes I get the kill, but I don't even show it because I don't want to bore you. I love this video, every scene I get the kill. I rather tell you that then make my video another 30 seconds longer just trying to prove it. I find this the best flow

I also made this narrative vid tonight for fun.

-Who is your target audience?

-What is their current view of RoR?

-What do you want them to remember about your video/promo, or what action do you want them to take as a result of watching it?

-If you were part of your target audience, what would grab your attention and hold it for 120 seconds?

-The average attention span during an advertisement, iirc, is about 10-15 seconds.

-"Suspension of Disbelief" is your goal. You want your target audience to believe what you have to show them.

-Average folks can be fed tons of logic, and remember about 10%. Make the message 90% emotional and you will have locked the audience in because your images create a physical feeling(s) within their brains: the endocrine 'hook'. Imagine 'logic' is a stick-pin: If thrown at your audience member's chest with all your might, the pin might lodge in a weave of thread. Imagine the emotion is a telephone pole, the logic 'pin' glued at perpendicular of the end of the pole; your message swings the telephone pole at their collective chests, driving the 'logic' deep inside, maybe never to be removed. (Recall how you felt physically after viewing the original log-in video of WAR for the very first time. You'll want to aim for that type of emotional response in your target audience.)

-Tell your story in 2 minutes or less.

--Break a leg!
"You're not 'someone' in this world until you're hated."

Check out this video from Kill Frenzy for some awesome creative inspiration. They have another you can find on YouTube too called 'Kill Frenzy Suckas'. Just as awesome.

Thank you Teinhala, two of those videos were inspiring!

Mez, you should do something like Wrel does with PlanetSide 2. Like a narrative commentary gameplay, philosophy, suggestions and topics about the game.

Thanks Gnash for the enourmous list. Will be useful to anyone!

Vaul, interesting horror story. Builds up the story quite well, haha.
