CTRL-ALT-DEFEAT's Platform Theme Videos

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just opening up a new thread where I can post updates for new theme videos I will be making. My focus is going to be on the "underdog" categories for platforms/games. I'm very new to motion design/video editing, but I hope to add some nice contributions for the community to enjoy. I definitely draw inspiration from @BakerMan's work in his videos (nowhere close to that level of quality and polish, but I hope to get a little closer someday) and have also been inspired by EVERYONE else contributing their time and talents to help make BigBox look so great with themes, art, videos, tutorials, troubleshooting and, of course, @Jason Carr's one-man army development blitzkrieg and bug-squashing (I'm still testing that crash!! :P). I really love the community here; lots of really great folks.

OK, I don't like sappy so.... this is where I'll put updates to things I am currently working on to showcase progress on projects or make announcements. It's also a place to make requests or suggestions or even offer critiques. I recently made a platform theme video for the Hacks & Fan-Made category (link to it below) and I have started work on a platform theme video for MSU-1 since I have a platform category for that. Next will be Super Gameboy and then I will dive into some game-specific themes for the Amiga systems.

In the meantime, this is short clip showing the little bit of progress for the MSU-1 to get a rough idea of what it will look like (all 10 of the games that currently have an MSU-1 patch will be featured) and what the music of choice is, though with some suggestions that could still be changed.

Up next will be Super Gameboy. If I can get decent enough art, I'll make it for both the Super Gameboy and Super Gameboy 2. Might take me a few days to get it up with work and everything, but after that I'll move on to game-specific themes.

I'm going to add an intro clip for Super Game Boy to keep things uniform/similar-ish to @BakerMan's videos for Game Boy/Game Boy Advance. Not necessarily final, but this is what I've come up with so far.

I did, but it didn't render out well. Tried a different technique to get a static background, which looks better, but still renders poorly and looks bad when larger. I'm going to try to come up with a different background effect instead I think.

This is the final intro for the Super Game Boy theme video. I'm already working on the main part of the theme and hope to be finished with it by Friday. Still have a few things left to implement, but figured I'd share what the intro of the video will be:

Gives the theme a nice feel when you add a little intro to it doesn't it?

Thanks! It totally does! It's one of my favorite features in the videos you do. :)

Thanks, man! Still haven't forgotten about the platform-specific hack themes you asked about, so if you still want to take a crack at 'em, just let me know.

Already looking forward to seeing more.  That Gameboy video just brought a big stupid smile on my face.  Now I got a room full of people looking at me like I'm crazy :D
