Planned return to film making

Rate this Entry
Squad will soon be here and it is set to be a great talking teamwork game. I just hope its pace and style is something I can get into. I want to get into it.

I have researched the modern day recorders and the ones associated with the hardware GPU are the best linky, for me that means the AMD GVR,which I have tested. IT records fantastically and all voip sounds too, including my voice. THese modern day recorders have a very small hit on FPS, so its not the struggle it used to be in my 2142 hayday.

When I was the big film maker on 2142 and really the only person on youtube consistently making quality content, I always strived to push the creative envelope and do something new and different.

With squad there will be lots of film makers and I dont just want to be another talking squad movie along with many others (silver has an e-g-o)
So I want to do something new to me, that feels creative and different & better than the rest of the youtubers

My idea is a series called Squad Leader Diaries
Imagine a video that's 60% gameplay and 40% commentary on the game, for example, we are moving through a forest and I create 2 fireteams. In the commentary I discuss how I allocate people, how I get them to follow orders, what I have read about tactical movement. So it's a mixture of my thoughts on my tactics and an educational piece.

What I really hope for is a following of good SLs who play the game more than me who suggest ideas that I then try and comment on in the next video, so its like a dialogue with the SLs in my audience.

    Have you ever checked VulcanHD gaming on Youtube? He has pretty awesome gameplay and commentary videos on Wargame Red Dragon. He shows the gameplay but also usually gives in-depth analyses on why he (or other players) play as they do. Of course it's on a strategy game but the principle should be sound for tactical fps as well.
