Hey guys, about a month ago I started making my own ARG, called Stalkerofthewoods.

Here is the channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3Tg0bHKNa4wdovkEp8OD7A

Note on a tree - what does it mean?


What is that thing!?

Anything you guys can think of to improve it? Help is much appreciated!  Very Happy

Also, can somebody please add it to the Slender Man Mythos site? Thanks!

Hey! I like where this is going! If I were to give some advice I would say to have the footage become more corrupt when Slender man is around because it is a good indicator to most people watching that he is near. The Slender man costume is SICK though!
Check out the end of this video to see what I mean about corrupt footage. I Think these guys do a pretty good job with it.


Awesome name too by the way!

MOD EDIT: Double-post merged. ~sethlapod555

Thank you all for your help and support. I just don't know how to get the footage 'corrupted'. Are there any good video editors out there? I think the videos are saved as VLC files.

What editing software do you have? Because it is really easy to do, even on Imovie you can do it! I'll show you.

I could edit for you. Check out my link in my signature called The Bigfoot Game and look at some videos and see how I edit.

I don't currently have any video editing software, but if you could point me at some, I would appreciate it. I'm running Windows 7, BTW.

 Preferably free. 


On another note, the next few entries have been filmed, I just need to edit them.

WELL free isn't gonna help you to much. What I would suggest is that some Adobe program demos are free to download and you could screw around with those. CS2 products I believe are free... could be mistaken

Well, this is an interesting start. My complaint is that in the first video you can't really see what the note says, but I guess what's on it has already been explained. I like the second video, as the protagonist is already coughing, a good Slendy is in the window, and the protag seems to be showing some frustration. The proxy(?) in the hockey mask also seems creepy and not in the typical way, reminds me kinda of Masky from Marble Hornets. Other than that my only other complaint is that we don't know anything about the protagonist (according to his Youtube comments he won't even give out his name?) and we don't know why he has a Youtube channel but this has potential.

I have really mixed feelings about the new two videos. 

A Message: I would recommend rather than telling the backstory on the message in the description actually say it to your audience it will get them more involved and will make it so that the people who don't read the description will be less confused. Also, try to avoid cliches, the Slenderman page thing is overused and shows signs of being unoriginal. 

Attacked: I liked this one a lot more. The 
Spoiler:
 
I would work on the acting a bit though, it definitely didn't feel very real. Though it started off with a nice creepy atmosphere which I liked.

There are my comments hope I helped.

I agree a lot with ShadowTurtle. A Message had it where it was a bit difficult to read the message itself and I would recommend getting a better camera for that. It might've been a bit neater to see the protag cleaning his room or something, and is pulling down an old poster before seeing the message, just as an idea. An Attack was a lot better, I thought it was scary and creepy as hell, that would be a frightening situation to get into. The fact that the situation isn't even remembered is scarier, because who knows what that person did!

Thanks for your responses and constructive criticism. I'll try to work on my acting skills and the quality of the film. Just be aware that we filmed some parts in advance, so those issues might pop up again in future entries.

EDIT: Actually, seeing as the Slender Man disrupts electrical devices, I can easily edit out any bad acting by me if it's not essential... Smile

EDIT 2: 
"Also, try to avoid cliches, the Slenderman page thing is overused and shows signs of being unoriginal."

Don't worry Turtle, we have something a bit more creative (and gory) coming up in a few months or maybe even a year... but it'll be worth the wait. Smile

Here's the latest video. I actually used editing in this one, including opening text and static. I hope you enjoy it, and any feedback is greatly appreciated.



I don't know when the next one will be ready, but I'll do my best for it.
