This sounds pretty interesting! Hopefully I can put something together in time.
This is going to be awesome. I hope my Covenant t-shirts arrive in time.
Also, Facehuggers! are you going to disguise our voices to sound like dying androids?
I will most definitely participate. :-)

Are there any technical requirements for the video other than submitting as an mp4? I guess pecifically: What raster size?

Erm..... Maximum 3 Minutes... oh dear... doubt i could squeeze into 60 Minutes ;)
Nice idea though ;)

Sweet! I am glad that you are putting this plan into action, it is a good idea!

VivisectedEngineer Ill try and find a way we can all easily do the dying android voice.
cuponator3000 I did a short test video in wmv, bought a basic mp4 converter online, sent to Facehuggers! and it worked fine. It is not HD but I think the point will get across. I don't think we have to worry too much about the specs you ask about. After all, we shoot for the best but it is also a start point for this forum as far as I can see.
Darn. My disguise probably won't work out. I guess I might have to do the old bank robber pantyhose over the head bit. Sunglasses too. I know, only the blind and assholes wear sunglasses indoors, but there it is.
Hey folks, here is a sample of Facehuggers!' work. A test:
I am still planning on participating, but still waiting on my Covenant T-shirt which I want to wear in the picture!
I hope that taking a video with my laptop will work, I'm not that tech savvy.
VivisectedEngineer I am using my laptop with a basic webcam program it came with. I sent a test video to Facehuggers! and he/she approved!
My intent is not to insult, but I wonder if some members may not participate due to varying levels of technical expertise and/or being camera shy etc.
I would encourage everyone to go for it. Remember that we want this to be good and fun, but some like me freeze when it is time to talk and I make mistakes. If the shoe fits, I have some basic steps to follow:
- I came up with a general idea for each question and typed them as topics- basically like the basics of writing an essay
- I brainstormed and wrote a rough script and will hone those
- Make sure my webcam works and I have decent lighting etc
- Rehearse and record until I get it how I like to present. This can take time since I might stutter or sneeze etc.
Have fun! In the words of the late great Lemmy of Motorhead, "Fly your flag up the pole and see who salutes it!"
Thanks for letting us know about the extension!
Thanks for the tips and encouragement!
I wonder if we should send it to Neill Blomkamp to see if it inspires him to give his Alien idea one more shot (sans Ripley perhaps).
