PostSubject: So.. I'm back xD    Wed Jul 29, 2015 12:10 am

Head Tilt So, Slender Nation, it's been a long while xD
i joined this little community quite a while ago, but neglected my duties as a forum member up until this point, so my sincere apology to the admins for leaving a relatively dead account on this site xD.
Anyways, I suppose you might wanna get to know me, since I do plan on being more active on this site, so...
I'm a high school student living in Massachusetts, I'm an aspiring artist and writer who struggles between being productive and energetic and maintaining a relaxing life outside of all the stress school and looking for a job bring me xD I'm a big time metal head as well as a Punk Rock and Grunge enthusiast, I enjoy bands such as Slipknot, Green Day, offspring, Tool, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Korn, Attila, Otep, Pantera, and Avenged Sevenfold (to name a few xD). I'm someone who will watch just about any sort of movie you can imagine, from horror, comedy, sci-fi, fantasy.. sci-fi fantasy, you name it. I enjoy tv shows such as Supernatural and Doctor Who, and I hope to be able to contribute to this community and both the Slenderverse and Fearverse with some good stories and/or poetry, so look forward to that if I can get off my lazy ass. I discovered the slender man community through Marble Hornets (cliche, I know), and from then on I was hooked. I even went so far as to write a story about him which, needless to say, sent shivers down the spines of my fellow 5th grade classmates (this was back in 2010, so).
I apologize for the length of this post, I just figured y'all would want to get to know who you're talking to. i look forward to interacting with the people on this site, and wish you all a nice night! Smile Sincerely, Eli Victus.

Hey Eli. Welcome back. I don't remember seeing you here before, but then again I arrived a bit later than some (though earlier than others ^^) Things have been a bit quiet here recently, coinciding of course with the low output rate of all the major series, so the arrival of just one new active user is a minor miracle Smile

My name is Ben and I've also been gone for a long time and returned just recently. I've seen a ton of slenderman series, even the really bad ones. I really love this mythos and hope we can work towards some kind of revival. For my part I am planning an ambitious project, that might never materialize, but I think could really spark something if it did. (yeah I know that's what they all say Very Happy) I think for a series to really make waves in this day in age and reach a level comparable to the likes og MH, TT, DH, MLA etc. it needs to significantly break with a number of the major conventions these grandfather series produced. They need to rethink what slenderman is and how to tell a story about him. In a way now, more than ever there is a need for such a series. A sort of vacuum to fill. At least in the minds of us die hard fans there is a hunger for exciting, fresh content with originality and daring! Let's keep the discussions going, so as many artists as possible will feel inspired to fill this vacuum and satisfy our hunger Very Happy

I agree with you PointlessTester. This mythos definitely needs a big revival, and I hope that in some way I can be a part of that revival Smile I look forward to hearing your ideas on this matter. I don't really believe, however, we need to rethink what the Slender Man is, because, at least for me personally, part of the joy of the mythos is NOT knowing what he is. We need a story that can bring together originality, along with sheer terror (psychological and otherwise), and good, solid plot and character development. With that, I definitely think this glorious universe and community could experience a great revival.

Well I agree that the essence should not be changed, but there are certain characteristics, that I think could be changed. For instance the whole video/audio distortion thing has gotten really old by now. I also think Slenderman's relation to his proxies could be rethought. But I agree that his essence must remain unknowable.

Recently, I've seen a few very good Slender Man videos filmed in the conventional way, not found footage. Maybe that could be the next big thing?

Who's been producing these videos, Davros? Sounds interesting, I may have to check it out.

It could be the next new thing indeed, but it is of course also a lot harder and more time/money consuming, whereas found footage work really well for low/no budget film making. I think a mix of the two might also work. Sort of like Pavel Hall did.
