224 - Busted Synergy

Three days to complete the movie for WCM's Synergy contest. This time I am not participating alone - the machinima will be a collaboration between me & Pinkhair.

The idea is that you have to make a machinima to a premade script. Which isn't the best possible - and this is me saying it nicely. I'll see that as a challenge though :)

It's so damn hard to find the correct music. I thought that OCRemixed would have been my salvation (as it was with Limited Escapism) but now it's a bit different. Good thing that Blizzard music can be used!

I found this frame by accident :)

This is an ingame screenshot. Spot the celebrities!
It's also the first time I'm using multiboxing in machinima.

hmm interesting concept having to use a premade script. I can't wait to see everyone's interpretation of it!

Great screenie of all the celebs ! I can't wait to see it! As far as multi boxing, does it make it easier or is it more of a challenge? I would assume the rendering would go a bit faster. If you have time after your entry is complete, I would love to see maybe a short documentary or a "show and tell" of how you did it. =)

Good luck to you, Pinkhair and all who enter !

Vil: The concept is interesting, but the script is not (unfortunately).

As for multibox filming, this one with 5 chars in it took actually quite a while to set up.

It's like driving a truck - the hardest part is to get everyone in the picture.

What was so different about OC ReMix? Perhaps I can clarify. :-)

Good luck on this contest, I don't have any time left to enter but I'm quite honored to be part of it !!!
:D :D :D
If people are supposed to vote for this contest, be sure to have some eye candy suicidal slowmotion scene FTW ! ^^

Larry: Nothing wrong with the site or anything like that - I just did not find the correct musical pieces for this particular movie.

If I'd be creating the whole machinima by myself, then it would be SO much easier to pick the perfect track (then I can write the scene with the song in mind).

Oli: I do have something in slowmotion planned for a gnome with a turban.. not actually suicide but close!

No problem, Baron, thanks for clarifying! I just wanted to make sure that our relatively recent Content Policy. It just formalizes that to use OC ReMixes freely in non-profit works, you have to properly credit the artist, track title and OCR URL!

Feel free to email me anytime in the future ( if you need help with a recommendation; I know our catalog of ReMixes extremely well, so I can always try to help!
