that part in the middle of Dan M's video (where the camera goes in the middle of the bomb) is very similar to Dave Meyers' style. watch the videos for Original Prankster and Defy You and you'll see what I mean

I agree, kinda also reminds me of The Offspring DVD's, where the guys jump off bridges and out of planes and float through the air, then hit the ground. It has the same feel. The concept is good though. ;)

I think the vids need to be approved before they appead in the Channel, so it prolly takes a while.

Although it would be best if they had a link to it on the mainpage. Because I think it took like 2 days before other news pushed it off the mainpage... easy money though for that one person that has entered if it stays this way ;).

I'm pretty sure it was David Fincher who started that kind of thing. Check out Fight club, Panic Room, Alien 3(though thats not the greatest example because he dosnt really even want to be associated with it) and other things. I actually thought the defy you video was directed by him when i first saw it because it had a filtered tinge to it and had those kind of zoom in effects.

Come on guys! Just make your video and put it on youtube. Would you do that only to win the prize or just to show how you appreciate to the song? If you have a good feeling about how your video would look, just make it... none can restrict you to put it on youtube. The band wants to see what you can create, but you just use the fact about not being able to win the prize as an excuse for not even trying.

yeah that's true but i do beleive that what i used falls under the "fair use" policy. I know it's copyrighted but i did give it credit at the end.

And considering it's a contest, how can it be "wholly original" if you're supposed to use a song not created by you for the video? and also if i'm going down sorry so i the other video with the atomic bomb, cause that clip is from a discovery channel show.

DMelges
05-25-2008, 02:58 PM
Yeah. I didn't create the bomb in my movie, it's from a discovery channel documentary. But come on, The Offspring can't expect all of the video entries to have self made material. If I were to record something with my camera then the quality of the video would suck, lol. I think the band is going to like the videos, no matter what (except for that other video in the youtube group. that video sucks like nothing else i've ever seen.)

shanna_guarana
05-25-2008, 03:41 PM
The video should be this:
The pretty fly guy gets dumped in a pool AGAIN and is starting to get mad due to his lack of popularity. He becomes crazy (you can see it on his face that he's crazy) and he goes to his house. He opens a box and takes out his father's gun. He goes to his campus, and walks down the halls. Then...he SHOOTS!!! SHOOTS!! SHOOTS a load of sperm in the toilet as he masturbates. Ok, but back to the story, he keeps walking to the door of a classroom and he is about to shoot everyone but then the video ends.

That, my friends, is some serious video material.

Why don't you make video of it?

shanna_guarana

Except for the part where you can't hear the music at all because there is some traumatic conversation going on between a hostage and a attendant of some sort. But, what a hell, why would you even bother to make audible the song of the band to whom contest you are submiting, right?

Here's my hammerhead video. can't enter in the contest though as from UK:mad: this is only my first effort as windows movie maker was bein stupid so it's not finished. the clips are taken off youtube and the main part is offspring playing live at KROQ. the timing is out on those bits as they play the song slightly faster live and the video has the single music track. there was gonna be a lot more clips at the start but i had to leave as just live clips as movie maker was stupid. will try and do a new one sometime and upload that. hope you like the first one, Please comment and Rate :D

I wonder if dexter saw this video when he was writing the song. The Text at 3:37 in my video it says the gunmen were screaming woo hoo, just like in the the song.

wow, some people just have to get their sarcasm-detectors checked...

Seriously, I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but most of the videos uploaded until now are really bad. Like, most of them go against the contest rules (you cannot add videos/photos of the Offspring; you cannot add videos/photos made by other people), or are unrelated to the song, or are just some crappy slideshows.

Don't just people understand that the purpose of this contest is to shoot their own video, instead of just compiling photos and videos from the Internet?

Hell, I would shoot my own crappy video if I lived in the US; it's not that hard, really.

I totally respect all the work you guys are doing, I think you all are extremely talented, but of all the videos up there right now, I only see three that DON'T have some sort of third-party material. Don't the rules clearly stipulate that that videos can't have that;

"(b) With the exception of materials provided by SBME, the Submission Materials must be wholly original and created entirely by entrant and must not incorporate or include anything that is owned by any third party or would require the consent of any third party and entrant’s submission must not violate any law or the copyright, trademark, publicity right, privacy right or any other right of any third party."

Maybe I'm misinterpreting that legal mumbo-jumbo, but I'm working on making my own video and am under the impression that it has to be entirely your work and original; even if you use stuff that isn't yours, but isn't copyrighted, it would still require a third party consent and, thus, invalid. Right?

Anyway, keep up the good work, I'm having fun watching all these videos. Just makes me wish I went to college for film or something lol

Geez if the videos continue to be this bad they won't be able to pick a winner! No offense to anyone here but all of the vids I've seen so far don't even come close to being able to make it into commercial production. I wish I had the means to make one myself. Apparently there isn't anyone in the contest that works in the film industry?

Why do they need to come close to being able to make it into an official video? It's not like the winner is going to be the official video or anything like that. They are already making one themselves.

06-01-2008, 03:08 AM
Yeah, they want to see what people can create inspired by Hammerhead. But I have to agree that most of videos are pretty poor. I think contestants should pay more attention to how clip would look from the 1st watch, making another soldier photo/video mix wouldnt inspire anyone. Add some short text fragments, maybe lyrics parts during some video moments if you don't have much editing. It should make your product easier to watch.
I agree with jacknife, this one looks better than others, reminds me of americana home video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YG-Q3sLHmrY

ZbadhabitZ
06-01-2008, 07:14 AM
I totally admire all the work people have done, though. I don't know if you guys have ever messed with any video editing programs, but even putting together those image montages and/or live video can take quite a while. Not to mention the legwork that goes into finding all the necessary clips.

I also feel like we'll probably see a bunch more videos closer to the end of the contest, and I'm sure there are people out there still working on some. I know I am! It's pretty exciting to see interpretations of the song, though. Even though we all know what it "officially" means, per that Dexter interview, it's cool to think that you can take it however you want and make your own video. So kudos to the people who have already submitted stuff!

good job man. It really is the best one so far. Most are dumb slideshows but yours actually but some....effort. Which is what is lacking in most other videos. I donna why everyone was playing the guitar at the end though. Would have been cool to end it with like you(Or whomever is playing the guitar, you know the main guy) playing the guitar in the hallway while all the classrooms burst with people and everyones running around while its focused on the main guy. then i dont know it could fade out to black or something. Not saying it was bad, infact it was excellent, but i think that ending would kick ass.

ZbadhabitZ
06-07-2008, 11:27 AM
Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it! I toyed with a lot of different ideas for the ending, the current one wasn't my original idea, but the more I played the song for people, the more they all seemed to relate to it, because I think we've all had those moments of bitter anger or hatred where it pushes us over the edge. So I kind of wanted to go with the idea that even though it was this one guy who was beat up and abused throughout the video, all the other characters have had that same feeling at some point, too, so they're all included in that final guitar shot, kind of a commentary on how we're all the same. And we should all get along.

But again, thanks so much for your input!!!

Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it! I toyed with a lot of different ideas for the ending, the current one wasn't my original idea, but the more I played the song for people, the more they all seemed to relate to it, because I think we've all had those moments of bitter anger or hatred where it pushes us over the edge. So I kind of wanted to go with the idea that even though it was this one guy who was beat up and abused throughout the video, all the other characters have had that same feeling at some point, too, so they're all included in that final guitar shot, kind of a commentary on how we're all the same. And we should all get along.

But again, thanks so much for your input!!!

well crap... that was really good... I like the use of guitar through the video that was a clever way to get around the real problem. Also the fact that you have yourself playing in it, people seem to forget its a music video, usually there are moments like that.

Man I'm still working on mine and its a little more abstract idea (ie not school) but... hahaha I'll admit I'm a little disheartened now watching yours ;)

Well done.

Finally a video that's worth watching 'till the end! Great job! I liked it a lot, the video quality and the way it was filmed was also really good to be an amateur video.

The part I like the most is when the guy is in front of the mirror, and his reflection kind of tells him what to do ("I'm just doing what I'm told").

The idea of using a guitar instead of a gun is also nice, I would've never thought of that.

Maybe the part I liked less was the ending. It's not that it's bad, actually, it's a fun ending. But maybe it could be different, mmmh, dunno. Great, nonetheless! :)

Thanks again for the feedback! And jim109109, thanks for the suggestion; I originally had an idea to do some guitar playing with lots of different angles, but it ended up being one of those things that worked better without despite it, which I think is always kind of a bummer when you film something and can't end up using the footage, even though you really want to. Thanks, though! I'm super excited to see more videos, I think all the ones up are so good, you guys are all extremely talented filmmakers! Makes me envious!

P.S. Did anyone else who submitted their video have that issue that you couldn't fit the whole YouTube link when you filled out the contest submission form? Just want to make sure I'm not alone.

And Paki7491, thanks for the heads up about the delay in submitting your video to when it appeared on the site. I was concerned I did something wrong!

Yeah, I was having that problem myself, so I just found the best stopping point that I could. Unfortunately, that leaves the "narrative unclear". But only was there not enough time, I ran into some snags with the original location I had planned to use. Thats life I suppose.

Very, very nice. I love 1:45 with the stars; those planes work like magic too. My one critisism would be that the video doesn't benifit from the song being so long; at parts it can seems a little repetative. Don't worry about that though, the video is the best I've seen so far.

Maxhunter, your video is nothing short of amazing, even more so because its home-made. It blows all the other entries out of the water. I love the official video but there is something a lot more 'offspring-y' about your video. Is this the kind of work you plan to get into or are already doing? If not, throw that thing in a portfolio and start job hunting lol.

Any chance of you doing a video for any other songs? half-truism maybe??

Oh also, I'm working on my first 3d game that I'm going to be using for my portfolio at interviews for a placement year coming up next year (but these projects take a lot of time), any chance of of some sort of collaboration? I would love to do a game in the style of your video or any other ideas you might have. PM me if your interested.

U think the contest became a super HOAX ?.. that now that they got the videos they don't care about giving the prizes or talk about it?... I can't believe that, not from Offspring!! NO WAY!

I have hope soon they'll update us about it very soon!! :P

well... we waited five years for a new album. Why are we so surprised to be waiting to hear a verdict on who's was best?

Relax, The Offspring aren't going to bilk their fans out of some pocket change. It'll happen when it happens.
