PostSubject: A concern of mine   Sat Sep 01, 2012 11:27 am

Currently, I have found the means and have a good idea to make a Slender Vlog. I could do some interesting and different things and have a compelling story.

The only problem is that I have found that there is a HUGE number of currently running Slender Vlogs. Even if I were to start a new one with a different formula, I still feel I would just be adding unnecessarily more to a heavily crowded type of series. The question here is: Do I get my friends together and begin this series anyhow, or should I look to do something different or not at all?

I would like to hear your feedback.

Do it! It's so much fun just to shoot.

Even with all the currently running Slender vlogs, it's still a popular and sought after genre/type of series on youtube. If you're able to make one with such a compelling story and get loads of subscribers that's great, but it's also nice to have a series with a close-knit web of subscribers who all care deeply for your character(s).

In the end, I don't think it's just about what the audience thinks about it, I think it's about having fun with your friends, and being proud of something you're doing. Having an audience just means you get to share the story you've created with other people. Smile

I understand that. I know it would be fun and all and I was ready to do it. I've just always been concerned with adding too much to a genre, especially if we could also have fun with a non-Slenderman related project.

Well, I have a story to write out.

Heck, it's fun even without a crew. I've done TWO series entirely alone. As long as editing isn't frustrating to you, everything should be fun Razz

I'd prefer a crew. I can do A LOT more with a crew.

Now, I just need an editing tool that doesn't suck.

You could always do a vlog within the Fear Mythos setting. We don't have a lot of vlogs set within it, so you would technically be adding something new. Razz

I've thought about it, but I don't think I as a writer or actor is ready to tackle those areas.

Yet.

I would do anything to have the budget to do a decent one.
seriously...most of the fears are harder to portray than slendy xD

but more on topic: dont be afraid to make one. I'm on my second vlog and I still enjoy it.
just be aware that you wont get too much veiwership, as a "Fifth Generation" slendervlog. (but it should be about the story and not the figures so fuq da polis)

Well, if I go Fear Mythos, as I now want to, I guess I'll be a "First Generation" Fear Vlog.

Yeah. When you think about it there is such an untapped potential with Fear Mythos blogs it is crazy. Plus a few would be cheaper to produce then a Slender vlog. Like Archangel, just say someone died and bam Archangel as them totally messing with you. If you would like a writer to help you out I would be more then willing to help out.

Any writing help is appreciated, although I already have an idea for the basic story, but not all of the details. If you're interested in helping, PM me.

Actually, now you mention it...for the archangel, gasmasks are surprisingly cheap and I want a vlog to use him.

Go forth and set the world on fire, my child.

A crew that is not paid and merely a group of friends is a lot more frustrating than you'll believe. Having to work around their schedules, needs, and ectera.

It can be, especially when you go the route I did and basically just right down a few key points and improvise the rest. The most frustrating part for me has been..well, there was an issue with file sizes. I think it depends on who you are working with. My crew (my friend and boyfriend) both live with me, so it's not that hard to film when I decide to film because we all just drop what we're doing and shoot.

My advice would be to try solo for a while, or find a group of friends that have nothing better to do.

Well, I can't go solo. My story doesn't begin like that. That's all I'm willing to give away.

EDIT: I also, even with great equipment, cannot get the same results as a cast. I also, thankfully, have a group of good actors. Well, decent, at least.
