    Okay, so for the LA Noire project--I had a suggestion I'd like to pass by all of you. Right now, I remember folk talking about using custom recorded voice lines--and as such--that means that they probably want to overlay them over the video. I was suggesting, that instead of just overlaying audio over mis-matched facial expressions--that I have the audio files sent my way. I can go ahead and add them to the manifest file and make choreography files using facial expressions and the voice lines and all that jazz. At that point, I could then replace different commands to use those specific voice lines (For example, "Cheers" could ONLY play one sequence and ONLY that sequence). I know it sounds complicated--but once it's setup, it would be easy to work with and it would make for a much higher standard. So--up to you guys.

    I was under the impression we were going to use Faceposer to create a choreography anyway. I've done it before, but it seems you're better at than I am.

    I think UntouchedShadow/Rcksta ought to make a list of their official crew, who's doing what in terms of production. Cast is a different list.

    I have a Team Captain and am in the market for some Mutton Chops. If not, I do have an all-father, but I don't know if it looks police-y enough.

    I want to make a list of the crew, but I'm waiting for more people to join the TF2 Noire group so I know. I need people to tell me what they want to do. The max amount of actors we can have is 20. Voice actors will also be needed.

    The group currently only has 8 members. Join if you want to help: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/TF2NoireSaxxy

    This might sound crazy, but why don't we just make a Machinima. Seems like too much work for an attempt to get a Saxxy, whereas if we make a Machinima it would actually be worthwhile, and in the long run, good content means subscribers, and we can actually make even just a little (money) off this free time project.

    I'd prefer this over a bloody in-game Saxxy which no one cares about. I volunteer to edit the videos if this goes through.

    Apparently they were going to overlay without using Faceposer--and yeah, I have to use it a lot with that animations project I work on--so it's not unfamiliar to me either.

    EDIT: Though, quite frankly--it doesn't hurt to have some help. If you want, maybe you can handle that and I work with getting it going serverside.

    Erm...this is machinima. Anything film related made in a video game or video making software is machinima.

    As I mentioned about 4 times in the OP, it's all in good fun. I'm not in this for the Saxxy - it's my first Facepunch collaborative project so it's just fun for me.

    I'd call these projects more of a "practice" round rather than actual entries which probably wouldn't be accepted since they're made out of the actual event schedule. If we like an outcome of a video we can re-film it for the actual Saxxy Awards.

    I can do editing with Adobe Premier CS5 and Photoshop CS5 as well as do some voice acting, though I wouldn't recommend myself for a major role.

    Do we need to do anything about standardizing equipment, software, or file types? I can't think of anything, at least.

    Or film for the Saxxies and later expand into a "full-length" machinima video.

    Wait have we asked VALVe about that? Did they say that videos made before the actual event is announced won't be accepted? I hope not.

    And Markntosh, you seem interested in TF2 Noire. If you're willing to devote yourself, would you like to made a project leader? You wouldn't be going at it hardcore 24/7, I'd just need help keeping organized and managing the actors.

    I assumed that last year they made the requirement because the replay editor was released when the Saxxys were. This year, the replay editor has existed for a year's time--therefore everything after the end of the first annual Saxxys should be eligible.

    I emailed Valve about it though to see if they'll give us a definite answer.

    In all honesty, I have a lot of existing commitments to consider, but I'd be delighted to help with the project however I can.

    Valve's pretty good about checking their emails.

    Even if they say the videos aren't eligible, we can still do this as practice and for fun. Once the real Saxxies roll around, we'll have had enough experience to pump out a good product for the awards.

    I'll put you down as a leader then. All you really have to do is check up on stuff here and there. It shouldn't take up a lot of your time.

    In the meantime, I'll wait for people to join the TF2 Noire group and then begin making the list of who does what. First order of business will be voice acting.

Unless I enter in the next saxxys, or I go to regionals in the Social study fair after deciding to make the TF2 video project.

    Should we put together some short dialogue to be used for auditions? Not for cuts or parts, mind you, but it would be a good idea to hear everyone's individual strengths and weaknesses in speaking and get an idea of what mic quality'll be.

    No, it'd have to be uploaded for only one user--and only that user would get it.

    I say, if possible, the project lead should get the achievement. That would also encourage individuals to come up with good project ideas that'd get chosen to be made into saxxy entries or films.

    Edited:

    Though by technicality, I don't think anything we're doing here would qualify for the achievement anyway, since, in order to get the achievement, the video has to be uploaded through TF2.

    You could always re-import it back into the tf2 editor manually.

    Also, that's probably a good idea--I was thinking that if we have two videos in the same category ,make it uploaded by a different person. Last year it was one video per category per person--so we can do multiple category submissions that way.

    Anyway, I'm out as far as uploading anything goes. I got my achievement of 1,000 last year by making finals.

    As for uploading...I guess I could do it. I'm not exactly famous, but I'm nearing 2000 subs so...

    That sounds like a good idea. When I get all the volunteers, I get on that. Hopefully by tomorrow there will be more members in the group and I can begin with the list.

    By the way Gamemaster, what category did you make it to the finals for?

    I made it to the finals of Best Revenge by a video of my own, and Best Cooridinated Combat with a friend's video.

    Filming and Editing:
    People with the right equipment are qualified for this title. The ones with experience in that will be picked over the ones with less or none at all.
    Hello, I would like to advertise my experience and services here as I feel it could be helpful somewhat.

    Without wanting to come across as being snobby or anything I am currently at uni studying Film Production having specialised in editing, this means that I would be MORE than up for being very generous with my time cutting entries together.

    At home I've got Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (& After Effects) however what I'd (probably) be able to do is edit on the uni's machines cutting on Avid Media Composer 5 (an industry level workflow), a software I'm taking an exam on sometime in the coming months.

    Again, not wanting to come across as "Pick me or to edit your stuff or you're an idiot." Just a guy, with a bit of experience, who would be very keen on taking part in this. Very, keen.

    I can only imagine what kind of things you can come up with--having seen your other works. And at that--Valve wasn't too picky about strictly replay editing (lol Badwater D)---but it seemed moreso that it was content generated after the contest announcement of the replay editor and if I'm not mistaken, had to include some part of a replay--which I'd imagine that Badwater D did at SOME point--even if it was minimal. Anyway, I also see a heavy restriction being placed upon replay generated content--the quality of submissions would be sacrificed if they limited it to only the two weeks. Not to mention, given that last year's wasn't the Saxxy awards, but the FIRST ANNUAL Saxxy awards--I'd imagine that they'd assume their fanbase would anticipate a SECOND ANNUAL Saxxy awards--therefore having 50 weeks of content is going to make for a far better contest than only 2 weeks of content.
