I'm going to pin this topic because we get one every few weeks and the replied are all the same.

Good - Originality and Good Acting (MH Series 2-3)
Bad - Clichés and Shit acting (99% of blogs started by 18 year olds and younger)

The line between "Good Acting" and "Shit acting" is very thin and always depents on the point of view and taste of the ones that watch it.
Clichés are only bad if they get heavily overused.
And of course does the age of the creator or the actors does not directly mean that the series or blog is automatically bad.

What I meant was the believability of the acting. Tastes vary, of course, but whether or not a performance is believably is pretty standard across the taste spectrum.

True, but series made by my generation are generally worse than those made by the older ones.[/quote]

Well, while I can agree that the younger the chap usually can equal the series being worse BUT I can name a good amount of series that are very solid and made by younger people.... I never thought it was fair to stereotype age for any kind of filmmaking. I think the younger kids can sometimes just give younger filmmakers a bad rap, which is really unfair....

There's my ramble, let's try to not make this in to a flamewar XD

I think I'd like to see one shot in a more conventional film style. I've liked the first person hand held style, but I think there's a lot of potential in the conventional film style that has not been tapped. The new angles, the use of a soundtrack if they want, how you can make a scene feel. I think that it would open up so many new avenues and bring a breath of fresh air to the Slender Man series world.

They are not, in small doses they can even be essentially for the story if done right

I have to disagree, i have seen several series that were made by "youngsters" and that were pretty interesting and partly even better than some series that i have seen from older ones.

That also varies very much and if i personally would use "believability" as a standard, then 99.9% of the movies and series that i watched in my life would be counted as "shitty" by me.

I'm not allowed to flamewar. Apparently if I enforce the rules I have to follow them myself. Yeah, I don't really understand it either. But what can you do? Razz

This might sound a bit strange, but I don't really mind bad acting. I don't really mind low production value either. I think one of the beautiful things about the Slenderverse, is that everyone is able to tell their own story and be a creator. And I want to hear the stories that the younger generation have to offer as well. I think however, that it is the responsibility of the older generation to inspire the younger generation with new and exciting ways of telling stories, so if the younger generations work seems very similar allot of the time, then at some level the older generation has failed to inspire.

Thanks man, I'm happy to meet a kindred spirit Smile

Also we should not forget, that the so called "younger" generation are in many instances about the same age as many of the creators of the "father series" were when they began.

I don't mind bad acting because you can't just become a good actor overnight. You need experience. You get experience by being crappy and then people tell you what they don't like, and then you fix it. 1 in a million is born an actor. The others become an actor. Same as everything else.

I'm sick of seeing Slenderman.

Not totally, but, I want more vlogs like Whispered Faith, where he is around, but not the sole focus. And that doesn't mean more proxies, it means more monsters, or otherwise non-proxied villains.

That's partly what I am trying to do with These Endless Shadows. Have him around but not the STAR! But I don't have another monster as the focus because then it would lack being a Slenderman Series....IMO

I actually want to see MORE Slenderman. I originally got into the mythos with the top 5 vlogs (MH, EMH, MLA, TT, and DH) and most of the time when they show Slendy it's excellent and that's what I get the most excited for much of the time. Since becoming an official member of this site I've begun to look at other series (some in the "new trailheads" section) and while I don't think they're as good as the top 5 some of them are still entertaining but they barely seem to show Slendy, or show him properly... and I just sometimes get bored with it. They have the hallmarks of Slenderseries but not Slendy himself. I suppose recently Marble Hornets and EverymanHYBRID hasn't been showing him too often either though.

It just feels like to me that the clichés are becoming the main focus and not the actual Slenderman itself. I see tons of proxies, typical slender sickness, distortion effects but not Slenderman. Not that clichés are bad if done correctly (and sometimes in small doses) but it gets tiring. I guess something else too is where people spend a long time exploring places for barely any reason and then the place doesn't have any significance. But I can really only think of one series that this bothered me and that series has been cancelled.

Well, most cliches are elements that make up the genre in the beginning, which I don't think the use of is always bad. It's like going back to the roots.

I notice this thing about MH and AntediluvianOne...nature.

Of course, there's the backyard and the local park, but I would like to see something scenic, some mountainside, somewhere nice.

Something that shows that nature can be beautiful but scary as fuck. I feel like Slendy fits in that area, as the forest or many isolated places is where the activity usually takes place.

Of course, there are areas where it is not too scenic for miles, but when I look at certain surreal art, there's always some kind of touch of nature to it.
