This is I guess a sequel to the last interview I did with Tyler Sigman, but even so I'm really proud of this one maybe more than any other I've done. I'm eager to know if a) anybody at all even sees this post, and b) those people (you!) think about it!
Every week I'll be interviewing a different Canadian video game developer or personality. The show itself only airs in Canada, but clips from the show will be posted to youtube every monday (all the best stuff tbqh).
In the first episode I got to interview Nels Anderson, aka the designer of Mark of the Ninja and the upcoming game Firewatch. He's a swell guy and you should both watch and deeply enjoy this content please and thank you amen.
In all seriousness though if anybody even sees this post I'd love to hear your thoughts on the interview :)
My new interview with Darkest Dungeon co-creator Tyler Sigman just went up and it rules. This is the first of four interviews that we shot in an actual studio, and I'm quite pleased with the results. It's much longer than our other videos but I think it creates a cool atmosphere. Also we were quite clearly inspired by Charlie Rose :p
Darkest Dungeon launched their Kickstarter campaign today as well, and you can check that out here: http://kck.st/1dczZFD
I've been producing YouTube videos for about 3 years and yet this is the first time I've uploaded something comedic, let alone scripted (every other video on my channel is an interview). I'm super proud of this! You may not recognise them, but these two guys are actually established local actors in Vancouver (the guy playing Mr. Samsung was in the movie "2012", and was also the voice of "Flutterguy" in My Little Pony). The other crazy thing about this video is that I managed to get the whole shoot together within 5 days of when I first saw the original Samsung commercial that it's based on. I saw the infamous "Are You Geared Up?" video on December 28, got both of the actors confirmed on December 30th, wrote the 8th (and final) draft of the script on New Years Day and then filmed the whole thing on January 2nd! Editing took longer than I anticipated, but I'm still proud that I was able to get the video up on January 9th.
What's frustrating though is that YouTube is only displaying it in 480p even though the video I uploaded was 1080p. I really don't know why this is happening--some people say that YouTube is still "processing" the HD version, but I can't imagine that takes multiple days. I'd try reuploading it but it has 111 views and I frankly don't want to lose those; it's hardly gone viral, but that's still a good number considering how long it's been up.
So unfortunately I just gotta deal with it. I'm planning on submitting it to some of the short film festivals around the US and Canada, so at least I can make sure the 1080p version gets an audience somewhere. In the future I'll be more careful about previewing the video before it's uploaded.
My next video's going to go up on Saturday; an hour-long interview with Daniel Floyd: former Pixar animator and creator of Extra Credits!
