FES Video
« on: December 04, 2013, 06:48:34 PM »
I'll get this rolling with its own thread. I suggested that if we want more traffic we should make a video that links back to this site and start posting it around.

So far we have Pizza Planet willing to edit the video.
Thork (or possibly Crudblud) can do the voice over.
And Spoon offered to provide background music.

Maybe we could work on the script together here. Now what kind of video should this be? Should this video describe the FES as a whole and the movement up until this point?

Great idea.  Moving to S&C since it is such a great suggestion.

This is a wonderful idea.  The vid should also include a brief overview of some basic points in FET as well as dispel any misconceptions the general public may have about the FES, such as religious affiliation.
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

That could also work, but it should come after the initial video. The more videos the more traffic.

We should first make a transcript and/or story board sketches and run it past the community to discuss.

Agree.

We need to prioritize content and try to set some timeframes when we can have them done.  I fear that if we try too many things at once, we won't end up producing enough content.

I suggest we simply have crudblud/thork explain the theory at a basic level while an animation of his narrations plays. We should all write up a brief summary of flat earth theory in our own words and post it here to compare. Whichever we like the best will be what crudblud/thork reads. I'm assuming PP (?) will create the animation.

So for now, let's all get started summarizing FET in an entertaining way. Personally, I don't think we should include a single thing about RET in this video. We shouldn't go into the conspiracy or explain how FET compares to RET. We want this video to be bold. If viewers, get mad about it, good. That means they'll come to the site and post.

I can't really do animation. I'm fairly good at video editing, and I can do simple graphical design, but I can't draw.

Are we going for an animation? If not, what will the video consist of?

I think an animation of some sort would probably be best. Heck, I could probably try to do it. I'm just a bit worried that I'd fail miserably.

I don't think animation is necessary, someone explaining the basics at a chalk board or paper easel would be informative. Having a real person talking would be nice. He/ she could show the website on the video. Animation seems like it would be harder to produce than a plain old video recording of a live person. Rooster would be a good person to do the video (she is closest thing we have to a FE fox)
 On the other hand, what person would want to put their self up as a FE believer to the world. Animation may be the way to go.
God is real.

I reley like that idea hoppy. Ive always loved those comerciels where someone will be explaning something like writing about it in a board and quickley drawing animations (like the glass is half full/emptey comerciel)

On a side note rooster is a girl? And whats an FE fox
Viva la FES!

A person (Crudblud or Thork) could use their voice in the video without compromising their anonymity. 

I was thinking an animation in the style of Minute Physics.  We would need to write a script, have one person record it, and then have another artsy type draw the animations.

That's basically what I was thinking too. Minute physics videos are interesting. They get the point across and it's fun to watch. Add in a voice like Crudblud's and we'll go viral.

I think there should be an American voice in the video. Not mine, though.
