Hi there! A few of my friends and I have been working on this series for about two months now... So far it's mostly backstory and the usual Slender Man occurrences, but we have plans... oh yes.

It starts off as one girl's twitter and video blog about going to a new college, but clearly, something more is happening. Then when her best friend gets pulled in, things go wrong.

Anyway, we're hoping for some feedback, we all know that things are a bit slow and rough so far, but we're hoping to pick up the pace and get some real story going here!

where it begins: Twitter and Videoblog, Ahoy!

Also, the Youtube channel: CloverinChicago

It is always rough getting started. It is a time when you must find your bearings and see what people respond to and what people dislike. I have a few suggestions. It is okay to have some long winded episodes, but several in a row is enough to cause a viewer, especially one who starts off in the wrong place, to disregard your series. People disregard series more easily now then ever before because of the abundant selection. Next I would suggest that you be careful when holding the cam. It is rough on the viewer when you whip the camera around in a casual setting. In such a setting there is no real reason to do so unless you really need to do it to serve a purpose. The pay off, well this is a personal preference. I do not know how others feel about this, but I hate suggested things that the holder did not catch on cam when the camera was on and they were right there. The same can be said for fill in the blank distortion. There is no payoff in these things and it makes me feel cheated. One thing that I have noticed about your series is that I can tell when you are trying to lead a conversation somewhere and when you are just talking. The acting is apparent in contrast to your natural dialog. I know acting sucks. I am not good at it, but you should find a better median between your two aspects of speak. I hope this helps. I cant wait to see what happens when your series picks up some steam.

Thanks for the advice! I really hope (and believe) we can smooth this stuff out when we get to actual storyline. I'll pass everything along to the others! Smile

It's getting pretty interesting! Normally I like a bit of buildup but I like how you just kind of hop right into the fray of things. I hope you don't mind, I commented IC from my own non slendy but still creepy vlog. My character's sort of "genre aware" so he knows who Slenderman is...so I had him mention him. If you don't want me to say anything like that, I can always remove it. Looking forward to see where you go with this!

There's some good ideas, used here. The knitting project, for example, is a very interesting and unique idea to add to the mythos and I liked the use of the crawlspace too, it was a nice bit of added creepy.

If I have to complain (And I always have to complain) I would say the acting is less good in some parts than it is in others, but that's a problem that can be surmounted by doing more takes. As well as that, I would very much advise making costumes for your antagonists and finding somebody to wear them rather than editing them in.
But yeah, definitely shows some promise. Like I said, you have interesting ideas and brought in something new and original which I have to admire you for.

Oh yeah and one suggestion, if you use that crawlspace again, is to make sure to film it! Lots of people have claustrophobia (which you think would be a fear of Santa) and even if they don't, it just adds some good creepyness.

Yeah the acting could be better but I can't say anything given my acting in my own series, lol. I don't want to criticize because I know my own stuff is pretty bad Razz. But I like the series so far and I'm interested to where you're gonna take it.

I keep forgetting to watch this! I saw it on my subs list and I haven't had the time. I'll try to get to it soon!

Edit:

Pretty cool video! However, I had trouble hearing your dad and had to turn up the volume on my speakers. It's not really that bad now but just don't do that if you're going to have ear splitting distortion, cause that'd be REALLY loud, lol. Over all, cool video. I'm wondering if your imaginary friend is going to play more of a part in the series, or if it's just a mention. BTW, the story I told you in the youtube comment is true, lol. I was a strange kid Razz

WHY
can't I remember. WHY am I so confused. WHY doesn't anything make
sense. And WHY do I keep thinking of myself by my middle name, Ann. WHY
is this happening. It's not fair

Yknow, I've always had trouble catching up to new series that I discover because they are always constantly updating, so in between keeping up to date with other Slendervlogs that I follow, I have trouble keeping up with the one I discovered.

Now with this one, since it's finished, I don't have to worry about that. Saying that, I'll be catching up with this one quickly. Very Happy

Please don't send me spam or nonsense, I'm actually looking for some answers here. I do intend to explain more later but I'd like to get a feel for who's actually watching this first.
