Alice Deeper's Machinima music videos
Well, so I got my hands on MovieStorm, and now I can make silly Machinima videos to some of my songs. Here is my first attempt:




and here is my second:




It's fun, but a lot of time sinks into making the sets - I made the second one completely from scratch, the first one is based on a template.

I'm not familiar with Machinima, so it would be interesting to know the process for creating the video component of these.

"Fail ad Fail" had a surreal/delirium effect (the green tint, the laser-light-show, the solemn quality of the characters) which matched the music well, I thought.

The video component of "It All Comes Together" seemed more light-hearted, even whimsical, which contrasts with the rather ominous lyrics of the song. The background dancers, (Elliot Ness and a his prostitute friend) doing the  "Watusi" made me laugh.

I hope you'll do more of these...meanwhile, I'm off to explore Machinima...

Thanks, cat!
I will certainly do more of these. Making the sets and directing ('programming') the puppets is a labour of patience. These two videos were put together in 2 full days each. In ways, the process is similar to multitrack recording music except now, it's set props and lighting, choreography (meaning all movements, not just silly dance) and camera angles that have to harmonize and complement.
I have definitely found a new hobby in this. Right now I am working on short story ideas that I will accompany with specific-scored music to them, likely in the form of ambient guitar and synth played to the finished visuals and built out a bit. It is a lot of work but the focus involved in the process is really rewarding

Oh man, those clips are so great. They give me goosebumps and flashbacks from my childhood when I played Guitar hero. Dude, that game was insane! That game was responsible for my incredible passion for rock and heavy metal. I still remember the Red Hot Chilly Peppers songs from the last game. Man, it was fantastic! And the visual part of the game was also incredible. Actually, thanks to guitar hero, I'm working in the music industry. I create royalty-free songs, and I even have my own rock band.

Hehe nice Well I'm happy that you liked the clips. And though I never played Guitar Hero myself, some of my friends back in the day did but they weren't actual musicians. I can assure you it dit NOT teach them to play guitar hehehe

Damn, this is really cool! I like both the music and the visuals, I think it could work because it's really cool. Keep up the good work, I'll be waiting for updates.
