Editing videos is kind if a hobby of mine. Sometimes I put together DVDs for my family, but that doesn’t really allow for a lot of creativity. So another thing I do is make videos from game footage.
I, along with several other people, formed a group of video makers for TheVille called Ville Productions. The original intent was to document some of the events that take place, but we also wanted to do some creative stuff.
The biggest projects we created were music videos for each class in Team Fortress 2. So far, we’ve made one for the Medic, Spy, Pyro, Demo, and Scout. Below is a great example using my favorite video, The Spy:
It’s been a while since we have worked on that series, but we have made some smaller projects since. The reason we haven’t continued is that the work proved to be too much for such a small group. Most of the people involved in the group are there to act, while some others help come up with ideas.
None of the other members have volunteered to do the editing of the videos, which is the hard part. It is also impossible to share the load of editing since the raw video footage is too massive to share over the internet. So this meant that I was doing all of the recording and editing, which takes more time than I have to spare.
Anyway, what this all means is that there won’t be any large projects coming out of Ville Productions for the foreseeable future. The good news is that there still may be some smaller projects too look forward to…
