Plans hit a bit of a snag, as my collaborator got booked on a job next week. I did too, but we were originally able to work on it. So she dropped out. I have to figure out if this is still doable before the deadline. Luckily, I still have an actress.

Was your friend going to be in the video too, or just help with the filming, production etc.?

I wish you luck getting it done!

And to SLH I’ll go check out the video. Is that the only one up? Maybe, doubtful, but maybe only five people will enter guaranteeing the second prize and Olivia and Dhani watching.

I still have my idea but no way of getting it done. I’m trying to figure something out.

That video’s amazing! Great animation! The best part is when there are like 7 George’s from different points in the Beatles all playing guitar.

Wow, yeah, that video’s amazing (http://genero.tv/watch-video/39032). I almost feel like the contest is over, lol.

No, my friend was co-directing, not in it. Another Beatle fan from school is going to be in it though.

That’s how I felt after watching it too. ahdn_ringo_09 at the video, a-hard-days-night-ringo-5 at the chances of beating it.

Well at least you didn’t loose a key person to the video itself, but directing’ll be a bit harder alone. You were the sole director of the Appreciate video though, right? ‘Cause you could definitely get this done if you find time.

ahdn_paul_06You guys can concentrate on a different approach, animation is just one (though that video is amazing). I’m sure other simpler, subtler approach can be as amazing provided its creative. All the best!apple01apple01apple01apple01

That guy is class- I subscribe to him on YouTube and never thought he was making a video. His ‘Dear Prudence video is amazing (although I generally play the original song over it a-hard-days-night-paul-4). He’s worked with Steve Riks as well, in some quite funny videos.

This idea involves more handheld motion, and I’d have to rent the equipment to steady the cam. Plus, one of the actors is from out of town, and his schedule isn’t quite meshing with the other’s. After sleeping over it, with so many obstacles, I decided to shelve the idea of doing a video. I don’t have time to perfect the motion, rehearse the actors, shoot and edit by Oct. 21 (and, really, Oct. 20 for my timezone) and I don’t want to publish a video I’m not happy with.

I’m going to contact the actors, though, and talk to them about doing the video in the near future – just not rushing it.

Ok, @Starr Shine? said she liked the sketch of my idea, and I like the goofy way she thinks, and there’s no chance I’ll be able to make it.  The guitar playing at different parts of George’s career is close to it, and might it be able to be modified (I can’t find the link to the actual video).  I feel the Harrisons would like the idea, but someone else may have a similar idea and then there’s the issue of quality.  But just in case someone wants to run with it or modify, here is the crux of the idea: 

Break the sum total of his career into 3 or 4 separate scenes (or as many as are relevant).  One would be with the early Beatles, one the band’s time with Maharishi, one George solo, one would be about George, Patty and Eric, and how George dealt with it (presumably through his outlook on life)…I’m sure there’s another scene in there next, and the final scene would show George as he was in the 90s, with no apparent fear of life or death.  The idea would be to show the evolution of his spiritual self.  The idea came from the “What Is Life ” chorus but it doesn’t really go with the romantic them of the verses.  That’s one reason the humor (or humour to some of you) has to be brought in.  It’s too serious, and would have to be made a bit goofy. Something like the Crackerbox Palace video, to show the dry sense of humor that was so innate in George.  Animation, Python-like scenes, distorted reality, something like that that requires resources/experience I don’t have and way too long of a learning curve…

I hope it doesn’t seem too cocky to think this might be worth implementing…if it is feel free to lambast me a-hard-days-night-george-10

My report. Today we were filming for 8 hours and it’s almost done. Just a few scenes and it’s finished. I need a snail in one scene, but when you need a snail there isn’t even one in the whole garden… So I hope that I will find a snail till 21st october :D

But other things are looking great. I can’t wait till it’s done a-hard-days-night-george-9

Here’s another video that’s gone up. It reminds me of the “Pines of Rome” sequence in Fantasia 2000.

Seems animation is the order of the day so far. I could animate a G and an H doing the Electric Slide, but I don’t think that’s gonna cut it.

Great video and welcome to the forum Henry! Love the colors in the animation.

So I think I can salvage the idea I had with my friend. I’ll try and shoot it alone and see how it turns out, and since the deadline is midnight 10/21 and I’m flying into FL early that morning I might be able to see him and/or get some other scenic shots in that day.

Wish me luck!
