Originally I wrote this as an article, but as I was writing it, I had an urge to put it into video form. So I did. Go check out the original article at OnTheStick.com:
Also don’t forget to check out Magnus VonBlack and his amazing cover of Simon’s Theme, which played throughout the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VqUw7h-QE8
This is the longest video I’ve done in a long time, and it took a lot of work to complete. To say that it’s been a learning experience is an understatement. There are so many things that I found that I needed to fix while editing that I just couldn’t without going back to rerecord, and I didn’t have time to do that and still get the video out before my self imposed deadline.
I’ve learned that microphone placement is important, especially during those live action sequences where I’m not quite facing the camera. I’ve also learned that I need to manually focus my camera to get the best out of it. I didn’t do the best job with it here, but next time, it’ll be a lot better.
I’m fairly certain that the Video Game Faceoff series will be a quarterly series at most. Something like this needs a lot more planning in the future, and I feel that this one was a bit rushed as a result of my lack of foresight. Again, learning experiences.
Let me know what you think of my first Video Game Faceoff video and whether you’d like to see more. Game suggestions for this series is also welcome. Thanks for watching!
