Well it looks like more effort went into this one than many others. That's something.

This actually looks really good, and really well done. The (drunk?) fat tiefling made me giggle.

I'm looking forward to it!

Xyk, yes, we aren't just a bunch of kids who picked up their dad's camera and started filming in the backyard. This project has seen nearly a full year of development and we sunk pretty much everything we had into making this the best webseries it can possibly be. Thanks for checking it out!

Proper small caps make me happy, but you really need to kern the W to the A.

Oh, and I guess you have some kind of movie thing. Cool.

Edit: on second glance, those aren't proper small caps at all. Why not? It's not like they're hard to find.

Loving the concept and the obvious amount of work that went into filming this. Already subscribed and looking forward to it. :smallsmile:

One tiny gripe that's not gonna stop me from watching, and will most likely be taken care of by the final release: you guys ARE gonna color correct, right? Even something as simple as upping the saturation would do wonders for those forest scenes, especially given the fantasy setting.

WalkinInCircles
2011-07-06, 06:10 PM
The desaturation is actually an effect we added on purpose. The raw video is much more vibrant and we wanted a dry, almost monty-pythonesque quality to our coloration. So, yes, we're color correcting, just in the opposite way you would expect.

Great stuff! I'm subbed.

I especially like Markus the Wizard, great concept for a character.


Druid (enthusiastically): "I, for one, had no problems sleeping under the stars."
Wizard (exhausted): "Angie, because of that, I am going to burn down nature. All of it. Burn it all down."
Druid: "Markus..."
Wizard: "Trees, squirrels..."
Druid: "Stop it."
Wizard: "Rats..."


The only criticism I can offer is that you need a better mic. There's a lot of great dialogue going on here, and whatever mic you are using isn't always catching it clearly.

But shows like this usually only improve in quality over time as the wrinkles get ironed out. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Will there be any fight scenes that wont be cut just at the start?
or any spells by Markus? (i like his robes)

I don't want to sound overly negative, but doing a good, realistic fight scene is gonna be hard. Unless it's played for just pure, over-the-top nonsense like something in a TGWTG anniversary special, I'm not sure how good it would be.

Second episode was good. I'm half expecting that rogue chick to just kill everyone in the party.

WalkinInCircles
2011-07-30, 12:31 AM
Super Dark 33: Fight sequences with the level of professional value we are trying to achieve are extremely difficult to achieve. However, we do have some really cool stuff in store, it just doesn't involve much hacking and slashing.

Dr.Epic: The party half expects her to simply kill them all at any point too :smallsmile:

Yes, she is quite dangerous, but then again, she is moderately hot. Keep her in the part or reject her from it? Quite the difficult conflict.

This begs the question how are they going to put the dragon on film what with them not existing in that? Is it gonna be CG or something?

The thing about dragons is they are such a pain on set. If you think actors are vain, just wait until you have a great red demanding more toasted baby legs and whining that the director is a pathetic weakling not worthy to gaze upon his mightiness. Then there's payment. You can't just write him a check, nooooooo. He'll only accept chests of gold coins and precious gemstones. It's a mess.

2011-08-06, 01:44 PM
well, there are two sides of bad apperence of dragons in stuff:

side A:the dragon isnt seen. maybe heard but not seen. the heroes walk into a cave, then leave it charred and tell how awosome they were.

Side 2: the dragon is awofully made. IE a guy in a bad costume, a bad computer animation and poor interaction with actors or using a toy of a dragon and heroes.

As long as you wont qualify as one of the sides, you are ok.

He says doctors just labeled it a phenomenon and left it at that. It's something he's always had. When his fingers get cold, they go yellow and dead looking. So far as anyone knows there are no adverse effects of this.

2011-09-22, 10:03 PM
Meh, still too many real world references in my opinion. Like, the stuff about elves I could forgive the Santa and LotR references because Santa is a old concept and LotR is big in fantasy but the stuff about cookies and Smurfs was too much. As for the cult, I don't, it still kind felt off. It seems like the majority of the episodes are just episodic. Like, they don't farther the plot that much and some of them don't add up to the larger story.

super dark33
2011-09-23, 04:48 AM
Of course too many of them, but still these ones were quite funny.

Some of them were funny, the gaming/fantasy ones. The rest were unnecessary.

Darklord Bright
2011-09-23, 07:32 AM
That's your own opinion, of course. I thought they were all great, and this series has never claimed to be shying away from real-life references. In fact, I'm almost certain they're half the point.

Lord Raziere
2011-09-23, 09:40 AM
that and it is made by a fan of OOTS, on a forum for OOTS.
I mean thats just inevitability right there, nothing can be done.
that and whatever works, works. Its primarily meant to be comedy, wouldn't really be funny if they were hidebound about the setting.....

Eleanor_Rigby
2011-09-28, 02:30 PM
Fair dues about the real-life references or whatever one wants to call them - nobody said there weren't going to be any.

So... the finale was fairly cool. I didn't predict it.

Dr.Epic
2011-09-29, 03:45 AM
Fair dues about the real-life references or whatever one wants to call them - nobody said there weren't going to be any.

But it does ruin the tone, and the first several episodes are done without them so once they do appear they feel out of place.

The last episode was pretty good though. I'd even go as far to say despite the real world references, I'd be okay with a sequel.

Overall a good episode. The CGI on the dragon was nice, and the beast itself entertained me greatly. Alex buying Marcus' soul was a nice touch as well. Not sure how I feel about the post-credits bit though.
