PostSubject: Slender Man Vlog Idea "StoryTeller"   Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:14 am

Here is the premise...

Me and me friends are making a series of tutorials on playing Real Life Slender. First few logs, nothing but the tutorials, and a few slendy sightings. Next video, we send Logan (Guy who is playing himself and Slender Man) that will be chasing us out to prepare. Couple minutes later of milling around, we see Logan dressed up as slender man. After calling to him a few times and approaching a bit, we hear a scream in the woods, and everything goes to crap.

Long story short, we escape, but Slendy is still following us around during our daily lives.

Our big thing was that Slendy is doing this as a Story. A kind of game. We slowly get picked off, and each time that happens, they become part of Slenderman's story. Each Proxy is dubbed something that fits their personality. Like one guy is "The Warrior", and another is "The Loner". Slender Man himself is dubbed "The StoryTeller". The Proxies will post videos on the channel, leading the remaining of us to trials and tests. Our mental state will continuously deteriorate.

What do you guys think?

I think that basing it off of the game is ridiculously meat-headed. Work out the kinks in the story and try me again.

Because this idea is completely original and never done before.

No offense, but IMHO this doesn't sound at all interesting.

Im actually liking this idea. Although, maybe consider changing the beginning to something else. Real life Slender is just too... Obvious? Everthing after that sounds really interseting though. Smile

So, the general feel is, basing it off Slender= Bad idea?

Good. Now, to think of a better start.....

Thanks for the help!

Ok.

What if we act like we're doing a Vlog series (The disgusting things normal Vlogs are). First part., we ask for suggestions on what to do. Second part, we do them. Third part we ask again. We make a separate channel and comment that we should do something in the woods. Then, Slenderman, crap happens.

Better?

First of all, don't double-post. Very bad plan.

Second of all, this is such a vague idea that there's no point to even really respond to it.

First of all, that's a good point, and I will abide by it in the future

Second of all, then why are you commenting? Be more like Fish. Say what's wrong, but don't be a jerk about it. This idea is still very vague because I just thought of it with my friend.

What I am saying, in clear, unconditionally precise language, is that you are wasting everyone's time by just posting here and asking us to validate your idea that isn't actually an idea. You have just said that you want to make a vlog that's a vlog, and are asking for praise.

You've got no special ideas that I've seen.

Come back when you've got something worth my time.

Huh. I thought I was the one that started this thread.

Anyways. Yes. The idea is very vague. I will admit that. Lemme make this a bit more clear.

It starts out as me and the rest of the group making a Vlog type thing where we sit around and talk, and at the end we ask for viewers to submit things for us to do. Next part, we go out and do those things. A ways in, we use a youtube channel that we make to ask us to go to the woods to do one thing or another. Once we're there, we do our stuff, camera freaks out but we don't notice. Slender man in background. We continue on as usual. Slender man will pop up in videos a few more times, then the story starts (Like the bulk of the series. You know, that idea I originally said that you forgot about?). We slowly get picked off, the now Proxies guide us around, we try to get away a few times. And it all folds into this story that Slender man is creating through the videos the Proxies make.

Better?

Why yes. Yes you did. Thus, you're open season for me.

I trust I've made my point pretty clearly, but let's just get things clear. You said "why not real-life Slender?", and several of us pointed out that that's a terrible idea, so you came back with "why not real-life Slender...but a vlog?", which is possibly the most asinine replacement that I've ever seen.

So, I'll say it again. Come back with a new idea.

No. First I said, "What if we're doing a tutorial series to play Real Life Slender and Slender Man shows up?". Now, i'm saying "what if it's a group of kids making a Vlog and Slender man starts coming after them?"

Hmm. The only similarities I see are Slender Man and that we'll be filming this.

Honestly. You say come back with new ideas, but "SlenderVlog" is a genre, not an individual thing. Just about every Slender Man series is a "SlenderVlog".

CONGRATULATIONS

YOU HAVE INVENTED EVERYMANHYBRID

OR PERHAPS DARK HARVEST

OR MAYBE 004STEPS

OCTARINE NIGHT MAYBE?

Shall I go on?

I do believe this one is my fault. The group in particular is younger kids. 13 years old. Also, there are gonna be around 6 or 7 of us. So:

A. Big gap between ages compared to the ones you listed

B. Bigger groups of people

C. We get PICKED OFF BY SLENDER MAN! One by one, then become Proxies.

A. Wait, what? Your profile says you're 20. But realistically, the reputation of young teens in the Slenderverse is...not good. Not good at all. Go watch 2080 (which also follows your format) to see.

B. EverymanHYBRID.

C. EverymanHYBRID.

It's at this point when I wonder if you'll ever actually come back with an actually new, somewhat original idea, rather than just trying to defend to the death an idea that was old two years ago.

*sigh*

Honestly, I don't think EverymanHYBRID has done B. or C.

B. The group never had more than 5 or 6 people at any given time, and it always focused around 3. And any others that joined usually didn't appear that often.

C. When did this happen? When did the majority of the EverymanHYBRID team get turned into proxies?

No? You don't?

Are you watching the same EMH as I am?

But let's also address the inherent shortcomings in what you have so freely called an "idea".

You're talking about having six or more teenagers on camera in every video. Are you planning to herd them like cattle, or are you expecting to release one video per year? Because you're working with numbers that, quite frankly, are unworkable. A large part of EMH's delays stem from the fact that it's next to impossible to coordinate schedules of only three people. Imagine twice that or more. (Which they have done from time to time.)

And you know, I could go on with Evan's having been usurped here, but instead I'll point out that you're basically reusing a standard horror plot (and one that has appeared in Marble Hornets, most recently and significantly) and calling it the next best thing. You are not amusing me.

I might be wrong about the EMH. I watched up until the used all the Augmented Reality stuff.

We all go to the same school, so it will be easier to coordinate. No, we plan on splitting the time between the six of us. Unlike EMH, it won't be the 3 main, then everyone else.

How am I doing that?

So, wait, you stopped watching EMH around the time of the Seven Trials of HABIT?

What the actual fuck, man.

Also, you don't seem to understand that the "major antagonist usurping control over minor and major characters and using them as intermediaries" is pretty much standard horror fare. I am not impressed. I have never been impressed. And unless you tell me you have a 20k budget per video and a 4k camera, I will remain unimpressed.

So we've reached the point where you have decided that you are going to do a thing, and if anyone says anything that is negative toward your thing, you're just going to ignore it and call it a "bad attitude".

What you don't seem to understand, is that I've been nice to you, at least, as far as I am nice to people. I have not been vulgar, I have not told you to play in traffic, and I am venting my ample rage at you in Skype chats. You are being unnecessarily defensive about your pet project because you can't handle a little bit of criticism.

You didn't make an introductory thread, but I'll tell you here what I would have told you there: You probably won't enjoy it here.

No. I'm saying you have a bad attitude. You don't see me going off on the other guys who posted here. It's just you. If this is nice, I don't want to see you mean.

Your idea is unoriginal, but not without potential. If you make the characters interesting, and make the situation intelligible, you could make something good. But it'll take all the more work because the idea has been done before. The details may be different, but the ideas the same. Focus on the details, make them quality, and you may make a good story.
