So, yes, I've finally brought myself to start making the ToMI movie I've been wanting to make ever since... well, ever since I've played the game.
I started filming with, oddly enough, with Rise of the Pirate God. Now, there is a reason to that. In my first attempt some half a year ago, I've met a problem when starting from Narwhal - cutting things from it may backfire - some things actually lead to something important in future games. But in case with RotPG, it's simpler to me - I'll put in all the important and exciting stuff, and the fate of some scenes and stuff from earlier games will depend on whether this will actually lead in to RotPG/Trial/Lair/Siege (in that particular order of importance) or not.
I've already uploaded a, let's call it, a little teaser video on youtube.
Now, there are some things I want to ask you people.
I don't want to go with pre-created music from somewhere. Including Monkey Island original music. The reason? Well, it's a pain in the ass, because music must represent what's going on the screen, and with pre-made music, it may get to the point that the actions on film must be changed corresponding to the music, which sucks.
So I'm looking for someone who's willing to take (To)MI soundtrack(s) (and other piratey soundtracks) as a base to transform it/them into a real movie soundtrack. I will supply the volunteer with final cuts (not in HQ, for the sake of simplicity in sending them) of different scenes which may be used as a reference for composing.
If any forummer has any ideas: post them. Lots of them. The same applies to questions.
If moderators would be so kind, I would like to ask them to sticky this thread. Attention to the project, as with any project, is one of the things that will help me get it finished. Morality boost, so to speak.
Thanks everyone for your attention.
