I need actors for OJP's main menu video! If you think you've got what it takes ie. talent, height, looks, pm me!

Actually, you just need to have an internet connection and of course OJP. Anyways, pm me your email if you want to help out in making the video

I'm always up for a video. ;) With the new saber changes, it will also be easier to demonstrate the cool techniques that have been in OJP a long time.

Interesting... Are there any more details?

Basically, I just need videos of people fighting one another. Like a directed skit. For example, I may need like 5-6 people dressing up as stormtroopers while another 2-3 play either as mercs or Jedi

PM me if interested!

Okay, I want to be a stormie!
Does this gig include total loss of common sense, two left hands and a pain-waver?

Hopefully I'll be able to fix the MeatGrinder so we can have a good server to play on.

I can help with "storyboarding" and piecing together the video as well.

so when are we going to do this i live in NY USA to give you guys a time frame idea and since its Friday i now have some time. Also i was thinking we could do the quigon and obi vs maul as no other mod would be able to do it like we could and as anywhere near as close to the move.

Tanqexe
03-30-2007, 06:40 PM
I wrote up an idea for a video...more of a trailer, actually, that we can take clips from for the main menu video. Check your PM, madcat :)

i like it never played that map before i would love to play the sith but don't think I'm quite the best duelist for the trailer, merc would be cool could they be wearing kotor Mandilorian armor uk one blue one red and one yellow

Hey MCM thanks for your interest! Just pm me your email address!

mark2000
03-30-2007, 10:40 PM
Uh....I guess I'll try this one out too. :D

Although I won't be able to be of any help if it's gonna be today or tomorrow. It's Saturday here now and I'm gonna be having an overnight at some resort until tomorrow.

UDM already got my email address right?

UDM
03-31-2007, 05:18 AM
Yeah that's right

Thanks for all your interest guys! I'm happy to announce that filming has already gone underway, with Jack being the first one to take part. I just need a few more scenes and it's done

I just got permission to use Nozyspy's Imperial Time Machine map for the "cinematic" trailer. Here's a list of roles that will be in it:

Jedi
Dark Jedi/Sith
Mercenary 1
Mercenary 2
Mercenary 3
Stormtroopers (the more the merrier, at least 3 who can respawn)
*And of course, a cameraman

PM me your contact info if you're interested, and I'll send you a summary of the trailer choreography for you to read and to decide on what role will best fit you.

Please have the cameraman remember to turn his crosshair and hud off. :)

Also, email a script my way.

Tanqexe
04-04-2007, 12:41 AM
OK, so I have a fairly good idea who's going to fill which role:

Cameraman: Me
Jedi: Maxstate (I'm pressing you into this role since you and Jon would make a good pair ;o )
Dark Jedi: Jon Hockney
Merc 1: madcatmach2
Merc 2: Darthdie
Merc 3: mark2000
Stormtroopers: UDM, Guyver, Maxstate (backup), Jon (backup), Darthdie (backup)

*backup means that you get to play a stormie when you're not in the scene.

We'll be holding rehearsals and doing some filming this weekend. I recommend that you take a walk through Nozy's Imperial Time Machine map (http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Imperial_Time_Machine;45610) to get a feel for where the action will be. Read up on the trailer synopsis (I think this has been sent to all of you; if not PM me to remind me) to start remembering what you're supposed to do during the filming.

As for the skins you guys were wanting, we'll have to ask for permission to use them. I'm really busy right now so if there's a skin you're itching to use, contact whoever made the skin and ask for permission to use it in this trailer. When you do get permission, post the link to the skin so all cast members can download it. Would be weird to see a bunch of Kyles in the room :)

Maxstate

Maybe Quinlan Vos as jedi? :D

Woot I get to slice up that guido :D

Oh thanks I get to be the merc that dies. ;) - Ok downloaded the map...will play around today at around 1:00pm - 4:00pm eastern time feel free to join me(you gotta use hamachi though).(i prolly wont play that long unless people come on).

lets see *digs through old post* ah well heres my KOTOR model pack that has the mando's in it that i suggested for the merc's and its the real deal tho they might be ported not sure might be a problem might not since its just a trailer
http://files.filefront.com/kotor_pack1pk3/;6392628;/fileinfo.html
also heres my personal skin in case you guys want to see what i look like
normal http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e182/madcatmach2/shot0016.jpg?t=1175816979 and red http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e182/madcatmach2/shot0004-2.jpg?t=1175816978
the chains are actually on the normal one also but the shader makes them appear and disappear depending on the light giving them a very ghostly appearance http://files.filefront.com/Anubiszip/;7146302;/fileinfo.html

Sorry guys but I'm gonna be away again this weekend and I'll be back by Monday.

My timezone is GMT +8

Tanqexe
04-28-2007, 10:58 PM
OK, I still need more stormtroopers, I think...filming will be done tomorrow, April 29 in, 1-6 p.m. GM -5. Rehearsals, reviewing the script, and then filming each segment.

Skins we'll be using:

Jedi: Master Isaias (http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Master_Isaias;55514)
Dark Jedi: Master Sagar (V)
Mercs: Delta Squad (http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Delta_CommandosVM;55832)

madcatmach2
04-28-2007, 11:04 PM
if were going to use Master Isaias as the jedi i suggest something different for the Dark jedi since there both skins of the same model mabey master sagar?

Yeah, that looks good, I just did a test demo and he certainly fits very well into the map. We'll use Sagar then.

Does he have to have staples in his mouth? Other than that, he looks great. :)

I'm getting rcon control so we can work with Meatgrinder.

Tanqexe
04-29-2007, 07:49 PM
Well, the server's set up for filming, but we need more people. Anyone interested should download the skins listed, as well as nozyspy's Imperial Time Machine map off jkfiles. We're using Meatgrinder server.

04-30-2007, 01:19 AM
We've filmed about half of the scenes now! Thanks to all the people who came in and offered to act :)

Please make room for any part of the time windows next weekend for filming the rest of the trailer; Saturday any time from 1-5 p.m. GMT -5, Sunday 1-8 p.m. GMT -5.

Great job, guys! I'm reviewing the demos and it's turning out really, really good.

Too bad that the server went caboom but good job at directing though :) I'm almost positive that I will be there next weekend :) Looking forward to it :)

I....I fell asleep at 6 o' clock PM yesterday and just woke up, what happened?

Tanqexe
04-30-2007, 08:49 PM
Yeah, since a lot of deadlines are coming up, this past weekend and this weekend are the only times I can film...so Jon got a bunch of people from Marvel Alliance (they were on their own server) to come help us, in addition to some regulars like Jack and Jawa. It's difficult to manage a ton of people, and it took a LOT longer than it should have, but I managed to get some good shots (plus some humorous outtakes). One scene in particular may require some clever editing jobs, though, but it shouldn't be too bad. We went through 7 or 8 scenes, so that's halfway through. The big firefight and duel make up the rest of the scenes.

Just received notification that I have a project team meeting at a professor's house on Saturday, so Saturday will have to be either 1-4 p.m. GMT -5 and then 7 p.m. GMT -5 and onwards.

If you see that Meatgrinder is on the imperial time machine map, then you know we're filming.

TheShaman
05-01-2007, 10:03 AM
I'm from Europe, GMT+1, just so you know, and I'm not in holidays anymore after today, (thats why I was so active in the past 2 weeks), so I won't be so avaible, and 7 pm GMT-5 is like... 1 am for me, can't be on at that time.

sorry guys. I'll be very busy with college stuff these next few weeks so I guess I won't be able to come to the party. My sincere apologies. :(

Tanqexe
05-01-2007, 12:44 PM
Aw man...that's too bad, BUT! I hope you'll do well on your exams, that's more important. We should be fine for filming if the other people who say they want to come do come.

hey, i haven't really got time to join in with all of this in game filming, but id love to do so one day, but with college and stuff i may be a bit late. some time around august ill be able to get some actual filming done, if you guys want any actual starwars camera footage, i suppose i could contribute some to you.

The only real on location footage I can get is a forest, a field where you can see either a forest or a road and a golf course which we technically can't go on. as in terms of costumes + lightsabres, we're pretty lacking too. ive broken about 700 lightsabers in my day and my parents stopped purchasing them for me since i was like 8 (i suppose i could get some wooden sticks + attatch them to handles, but they break not much less easier than the cheap plastic ones, what i really need is some fiberglass). I don't have a job since unemployment is pretty high at the moment, and the most costume we have are bath robes. though there are guides on how to make them. anyway, if you're going to release another version, i'm willing and would love to shoot you some real footage in the summer if i can get round to it.

I appreciate the offer, but I personally feel that we're better off with completely ingame created video content. Of course, I'm not in charge of trailers so we're going to have to see what everyone else thinks.
