Video Sucks

Let me clarify: video that has me featured in it blows chunks. No wonder Ramp has never watched his little video blog debut. I now see why.

I just finished Rafter’s silly newsletter video blog or whatever the fuck it is, and I must say….scripts are the devil. If he had just interviewed me and filmed the result, it would have come across much better. My eyes look swollen (I have no idea why), but at least I didn’t keep them shut the whole time. I look like I weigh about 450 pounds, and have no teeth in my mouth.

No wonder I never got a call back from all of those auditions I’ve done.

Lot’s of stuff left out of the little video…especially when explaining everything envolved in getting models into the game. We touched briefly on blend files, but they are, by far, one of the most time consuming things to do.

Anyway, if you see it, be gentle…I am very fragile. Fuckers.

Here’s someone that looks a whole lot better on camera then I do:

    I don’t think anyone expects you guys to be natural actors. You do great, considering.

    Though Rafter might want to consider getting a Teleprompter rig for his videocam.

    Of course, another approach would be to hire a “spokesmodel”, akin to the eye candy that graces this blog. You guys could massively increase your YouTube viewership, and maybe even your subscriber numbers, with a videoblog approach akin to Moscow’s “Naked News”.

    Hire KATHY BLANCHE, and make she to read all the stuff of the video blog…
    Expect to raise our customer base by 600%, even if she read the news in Hungarian language. 🙂

    Wear more makeup than usual and you’ll look better on camera. Yes, scripts do suck. For non-actors it’s always better to have an outline and just shoot it with the idea that you’ll do a lot of editing.
