  • What makes a good PR video to you?

    I posted this one in the 12/12 scrim thread and got some positive responses. Among other random vidoes I've either just thrown together or spent some time on (ex. A Bridge too far) I was wondering if anyone else could share what a makes a Project Reality video, in their opinion, "good".

    Some might value humor, some might value teamwork, some may value heroics, I'm interested in what you value. Maybe it's a combination, or maybe you've never heard of this "you tube" thing ;) . Discuss!

    Q: How many members of Congress does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate freedom?!?

    EXPLOSIONS! And ingame comms is always a blast to hear, but i know that requires in game recording which can sometimes be a biotch but its worth it in the long run IMO.

            That was actually a very nice vid Third.

            And what makes a good vid for me?
            Well it depends. I can appreciate funny stuff, if it's not too stupid and either happens totally unintentionally, or intentionally on an empty server.
            What makes a lot of videos a little 'meh' for me is showing off. People who want to show how effin' awesome they are... meh... don't need to see that.

            I like intense ingame situations with hectic voip commands. When you can feel the rush of the game. That's what I'm looking for!

              For me I like some gameplay interspersed with cinematic techniques. It's always cool to see a really glossy pro approach. I have Vegas 10 for a Xmas gift and have tried the demo etc. I am going to be trying split screen, 24 style splits etc. If we can get BFR back up at some point I want to do a slit of first person and top down with authentic radio traffic.

              Snazzy titles, music and interesting commentary. Tempo is important too, always like it when you get that climatic build to an explosion of action, you know stealth, patience and then bam ..bring the noise.

              Perhaps we could set up a film club and pool resources and knowledge lol. Actually that might work

                  That was what i wanted to do when i first thought about recording PR, switching from 1st person to BFR footage

                  I generally just like gameplay videos, especially seeing battles from the perspective of another of my squads point of view. The style of your video there thirdsin is brilliant, if it wasn't for the lack of sharks and nazis i would have thought i was watching something on the discovery/history/military channel

                    I'd love to do this. I've been praying that BFR gets fixed...

                    I liked the video Third. The voice isn't too great but that is what real live people are for ^_^. I want to see more stuff like this, where we look at strategy and the results, preferably from both sides of the battle. I also like videos where there is obvious teamwork going on... or hell even when **** hits the fan...

                        That ladies voice reminded me of BBC News... so it got me thinking. It would be kinda cool to make a video that felt like you were watching a new piece. It would have the commentary, war footage with the newscaster near the front line, and explosions (that always makes for good TV). LOL

                          Rage is the only music, all others are just noise.

                              I like where this thread is going!

                              I've looked into picking up some video editing software (Like Sony Vegas Pro). Haven't made a decision what makes the most sense and more importantly what is not too expensive. $150 range would be maxing my willpower, depending how good the software was as an improvement over the free windows movie maker. While WMM isn't very good, it gets the job done for the basic stuff.
