    As you might know by now, I'm in charge of creating videos. I'm not running out of ideas anytime soon, but I'm really keen (more curious) to know what are your thoughts on the kinds of videos that should be produced. It can be any categories (trailers, interviews, tutorials, etc.) and it'd be cool if you could give specific examples too. :cool:

    So, what videos do you want/like from a Treasure Hunting MMO?

    Thanks for asking

    Right now ANYTHING you would like to so us to get us excited to go to Arkadia even more so then we are now. Show us what it looks like and work on tutorials in between those teasers. New gear we can expect, new cities with what inhabitable building possibilities that are available would be truely great to see.

    lets see the veiws, panoramas, locations etc. Then throw in just few glimpses of mobs, weapons etc. Just enough to get everyone geussing and thinking about what it was they actually saw :)

    Its one of the projects I'm looking to get done. For sure, the day we launch, some videos along the line would be featured on our website and youtube channel. Don't want to make a video just for the sake of making one. I'll see how it goes as there will be certain missions in the game that takes care of certain tutorials.:eek:

    Lol Ifuri, you never cease to amaze me. Good job on that. I'll see that I do one somewhere along this line.

    Hey Gatman, not too sure on the video of a new dance emote, but for certain, there'll be interviews with the development team at some stage. The b-rolls would probably show some hints on the world, mobs, guns, etc.

    I get your point Bill. I'll see that there'll be a new batch of information streaming in next month. I hope you look forward to it.

    Howdy Warpath, I probably won't be releasing them in one single video but certainly in batches.

    Thanks for sharing guys. Video trailers would certainly be a big part for attracting new players to come and experience life in Planet Arkadia. What kind of video trailers impress you? Feel free to post some examples.

    I guess it depends to the launching process.
    I would like to see some landscapes, cities, mobs at the first glance. Just for getting an impression what Arkadia stands for.
    Later you may show us some highlights: new items, special places, this archaeological aspect. Since treasure hunt is one of the unique aspects of Arkadia, you should give us an imagine of what it could be.

    I would like to see some interviews with staff members too.

    I don't know if you have time and capabilities to make some videos along the story you just started to publish. I guess that would mean a shipload of work. But I would like it. Just a few short sequences for each story part.

    You made that? Thats an awesome video! Did FPC have you make their version of it too? The colonist MMO one?

    I think an interesting vid for Arkadia guys might be a sorta from concept to 3d model to ingame for a bunch of models? A little like the portfolio video on the concept artists website. Maybe a sorta stop motion of a particular picture or model being created?

    you want an impressive trailer? there you have it :D

    [video=youtube;-iFrHRaH0Os]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iFrHRaH0Os[/video]

    you could do something along the line of a recon squadron landing on the planet. somehow Lee managed to get on that ship too, which incredibly annoys the officer in charge (who ofc cant be harvir). he tells lee to stay on the ship, they argue, he tells him to at least stay back and follow.

    the ship lands close (not too close) to a ruin/city depending on what the planet looks like, lee rushes forward, officer tries to get a hold of him but misses.
    one of "the bad guys" emerges from behind a corner in front of lee, lee tries to stop, falls back on his butt and starts crawling backwards. more bad guys emerge but the soldiers who now caught up with lee (carrying some nice toys ;)) save his sorry ass.
    lee ofc doesnt say thank you and the officers is shouting at him what he thinks he's doing...
    then they spot something big coming from further away (maybe one of those tank like thingies from the concept art?) and get under cover. there's no use shooting at it with what they have and it blasts away at whatever they're hiding behind. it starts looking desperate and lee panics, screaming at the officer to save HIM.

    when the big thing comes closer (but not that cliché last second kind of deal) the next ship arrives in the area and blasts it out of existence with its armament.
    the officer visibly relaxes, mutters "thank god" or something like that and from that scene the camera pivots upwards showing the arrival of a couple more small ships. the bigger ones wont come down until the area is clear after all ;)

    most likely not possible with ingame video capture, but a cgi when you announce the release date would be nice =)

    [and please get rid of the 4 image limit per post, or dont count smilies ^^]

    I would like to see a CGI trailer/video that inroduces the story of planet Arkadia
    and then an actual gameplay trailer/video showing the various aspects of the game,
    including treasure hunting. A tutorial trailer/video would be nice as well.

    A gameplay overview would definitely be useful to introduce Planet Arkadia. What sort of "gameplay" features do you think should be included in the overview?

    There'll be interviews with staff members for sure, especially the development team.

    Capabilities wise, I have a great team behind me who will render me assistance in areas that are out of my reach. Like what you mention, I'd be thinking more of snippets instead of the whole story to make it into a trailer.

    If its the whole story, we might as well make it into a blockbuster. Hmmmm...now wouldn't that be nice. :p


    I'll be doing something similar yet different for these vids. By the way, I really like the teaser video that you made. It's very special...are all the clips shot by you?

    If so, what camera are you using?

    Story Introduction - Ticked
    Gameplay Trailer - Ticked
    Tutorial Video - Ticked

    Will revise some of the storyboard. Can't wait to get down to editing the videos. Wooot.

    I don't want to be your fan, I just want to be your friend. Lol. Already added you on the friend list Ifuri. Looking forward to seeing your new videos. You using Adobe After Effects or Apple Motion?

    Thanks for the input Kay. It is really descriptive and makes it easier for me to visualize the essence of what you want to see in a trailer. Preferbly, CGI would be the way to go. The trailer is an important factor in getting new colonists to Planet Arkadia, so it's one of our utmost priority to produce a really good one to launch with a "BANG"!
