    Help me turn Auraxian Rhapsody into a full gameplay video!

    So you may have recently seen this video going around recently:


    Now, it's quite outdated, but I still think we can make this work, it'll mostly be scripted shots of you lot doing specific things. After the success of my flash montage I really think this is possible and can look great. Unlike the flash montage, I need a lot more people, all willing to switch factions for a couple of shots as well. If you want to take part please post below with times you're available, I need to know how many are willing to take part because without at least a full squad this isn't worth doing.

    Their is the problem with my lack of mic, but all we need is a dedicated person to read out chat, it worked fine with the galaxy in the flash montage, and that was far more complex then what I plan to do with this, plus most of that was made up as I went along, this time I've written up every shot. So if those partaking would read through, learn the shots or just have it to hand when filming, this can all go smoothly.

    Here's what I've written for it, parts in brackets are shot descriptions, it's all fairly simple:

    Is this the nanites? (slow pan towards an engie repairing a vehicle)
    is this insanity? (Shot of someone walking out of a spawn tube)

    Killed by a tank mine
    No mine guard on their sundies (sundy drives over tank mines, obviously without mineguard)
    Libs in the skies, (3 libs in a “v” formation fly overhead)

    a squadron of scythes you'll see (myself in a scythe at flight ceiling, looking down at 11 sycthes, about 200 metres below me) all flying at the same speed in a “v” formation. My scythe will not be seen as I will use free look to get the shot)

    NC at the door shields, he needs some sympathy ( Lone NC standing in front of VS door shields)
    Because we're way too high, (shot of gal flying overhead at around 600ish metres)

    never low, (valk flying low and crashing into the ground just in front of the camera)
    through the shields, photon goes (scythe shooting rocket pods at enemy shields)
    Anyway the wind blows, mozzies always seem to hit me, hit me (shot starts empty and pans towards a mossy shooting a lone MAX)

    Vanu, tried to kill a man, drove a mag over his head, you would think he would be dead (Magrider trys to run over TR light assault, LA jumps over the mag.)
    Vanu, next time use the gun, cause then you would have blown them all away (magrider shooting group (around 6-8 TR soldiers) with the VPC, they all die)
    Vanu, oohoohoo, didn't mean to make you die, but I can't see where my mag's driving at all
    I'll carry on, I'll carry on, as if I didn't kill my teammates (Vanu soldiers are clustered together, shooting, the mag comes behind them and magburns through the lot, turns round to look, the ndrives off)

    Too late, the zerg has come ( shot of 4 sundies with lightnings and mags escorting friving towards camera, a few aircraft fly above)
    Ruining everybody's time, getting killed by their own mines, ( an NC infil throws EMP grenades at VS mines as people from the previous shot drive over them)
    Goodbye, everybody, my sundy's got to go ( sunderer driving away, enemy tracer fire hitting it)
    And I'll leave you all behind and face the blues ( a few friendlies chase after it as they are gunned down by the NC shooting at the sundy)
    Vanuu, ohohooo, it's impossible to die (VS MAX being repeatedly shot by several NC with the mag shot, (they are out of shot so you only see the MAX shrugging off bullets))
    Though I sometimes wish I never respawned at all (VS soldier slowly walks out of spawn tube)



    solo (slow panning footage of vehicles driving, aircraft flying etc)

    I see a silhouette of an infiltrator (slight shimmer of an infil)
    He's a douche, he's a douche but he'll probably kill me ( Infil kills myself)
    Full upgraded lighting never really frightening me (Infil staring down the barrel of a lightning, preferably HE due to the more threatening look)

    Leave the Crown (people fighting at the crown)
    Leathe the warpgate (Several people at the very edge of the WG shield look out upon the landscape)
    Leave the sundy (everyone using the same terminal at a sundy)
    Leave the spawnroom (stock footage of spawnroom warriors)
    Cause it's useless being there (get the f&^k out) (people at WG and sundy explode)

    I'm just a treeline, nobody likes me (shot of treeline on Hossin)
    He's just a place where nobody wants to be (large number of sycthes crash into said treeline)
    Make Amerish more appealing to me (panning shot of Amerish from an ESF)

    Easy mode, easy kill, let the rockets go
    The Striker (large group of people all firing the striker at the same time on a hill)
    Nooo, we will not balance it --balance it (Striker people explode)
    The Vanguard (vanguard slowly moving, (around 20KPH))
    We will not speed it up -- speed it up (vanguard explodes)
    The framerate (footage of normal fight at less than 20fps)
    We will not smooth it out -- smooth it out (I explode)
    Will never be fixed -- smooth it out (I explode again)
    Will never be fixed -- will never come (another explosion of myself)
    (never, never, never, never fix this crap)
    no (different shot of strikers exploding) no (different shot of vanguard exploding) no (another shot of me exploding) no (another striker group explode) no (another vanguard explodes) no (I explode) no (very large explosion, tank mines, proxies, C4 all in one big pile detonated)

    Oh esamir this esamir man
    I am so sick of the snow (panning shot of Esamir)
    It's finally time, to make harassers less OP! (footage shot from the back of a harraser of other harrasers following through a battle, like in our outfit trailer)

    ..Sonyyyy(OP), Soonyyyyyyy(OP)


    (general high octane gameplay, lolpod strafing runs, harrasers roadkilling and going over jumps, you get the idea)

    So you think that a lancer could cause me to die (infantry is shot by a lancer)
    So you think you can shoot it while trying to hide (guy behind rock fires lancer, then crouches behind rock)
    Flaaaash races, got to win more flash races (footage from a flash race we can do)
    I could use a ride, I could use a ride out of here ( person repeatedly being run over by different vehicles)



    (more action shots)

    Vanu, vanu.
    Vanu, yeah, vanu, yeah (panning shots of VS squad, all with camos, posing with 2 scythes behind and a mag at centre back. Your general group photo)

    Nothing really matters
    Cause we all play for free (panning shot of people with no cosmetics and using uncerted stock weapons)
    I really have to note though:
    That open Vanu helmet's dumb to me ( close up of a heavy with stock helmet)


    What do you think? If you have any ideas regarding the shots please let me know, and again, if you want to take part please post below.
    There are no requirements to take part, giraffe camo is prefferable but certainly not necessary. The only real requirements are at least 1 person to have tank mines certed and 1 to have EMP nades. The strikers can be trialed.

    FIlming probably won't be completed in one session, if we can, then great, but I'm not expecting it. I'm looking to start this saturday, around 8.00PM GMT, but this is very flexible.

    I would be happy to assist. That song is amazing. If you could get mic though, gorn, that would help tremendously. Just saying.

    It's not a problem with having a mic, it's more a problem with me feeling incredibly uncomfortable talking to people. A result of the combination of several different learning disorders. I can barely talk to lifelong friends and family in person, talking to people I've never met is too far a jump for me. Perhaps one day I will, but that day is a long way off.

    Oh fair enough! You seem to type remarkably well whilst flying and I find that somewhat nerve wracking.

    What you don't see is just about every time when I type while flying I have to pause mid-sentence to pull up over a mountain or other natural feature, I usually only clear it by a metre or so. I think it's the main reason why I'm an above average pilot. That and the ride of the valkyries horn of course.

    I wanted to help with the last one, but my stupid work schedule, once again, got in the way.
    I would also love to participate in this one.. and will, if I'm around when filming takes place.
    I'll check back here, in hope you'll be posting a shooting schedule... or, gimme a shout, if you should see me on Steam, and I'll hurry to Auraxis.

    If I'm around when you're doing it I'd be more than willing to help out. Just give me a shout. Of the text-based variety

    I can see that. People are annoying.

    I'm planning on shooting the first couple of scenes tommorow, at about 8.00pm GMT. I won't need many people for the ones I plan to do but if enough people show then we can move onto some of the bigger ones like harassers and flash racing.

    Thanks everyone, filming went smoothly. I've got about half of it done. We're probably going to do the rest this monday. I'll put a notice in the Silly monday thread as the rest of the stuff should be a lot more fun to do, flash races, harraser action shots etc.
    Everything I've got left to film is below:
    is this insanity? (Shot of someone walking out of a spawn tube)

    NC at the door shields, he needs some sympathy ( Lone NC standing in front of VS door shields)


    Too late, the zerg has come ( shot of 4 sundies with lightnings and mags escorting driving towards camera, a few aircraft fly above)

    Great fun filming! One thing though, it appeared that you were standing still for most shots. Perhaps try to do a few while moving? For example, you could crouch, aim (with hud and weapons off) and move slowly around the NC standing at the VS door shield. Mixing in a few mobile sequences should make it more interesting than if all shots are static. :)

    Unfortunately I won't be doing any filming tonight, I just really don't feel up to it. I don't have an estimate for when I'll next start but it'll probably be either tomorrow or Thursday.
    I want to try some new techniques out, such as filming from the back of a harraser and out of valk rumble seats. Perhaps some formational flying with the valk of to one side and slightly above? I think it would look really good if we can get the co-ordination. Some birds-eye views of 24-48 fights from the side of a circling valk would look great also.
    Suggestions would be welcome.

    Hi guys. I just registered because I was getting an insane amount of e-mails from youtube. It seems you guys are partly to blame. And reddit.

    So now, the view are up 44383.33% compared to last month. Happy days. Then I stumbled into this. Happy days. You guys are doing what I never came around to doing.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: I'm the author of Auraxian Rhapsody

    If I can do anything to help, I'd be more than glad to! I'm really excited that you guys are doing this and would like to lend my full cooperation!

    Send me an e-mail or comment on yourtube or whatnot. lombardy.ray@gmail.com or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiKmb19jefc

    Just so people know I'm going to try and do some filming tonight, I probably won't get much done due to how I feel but it should be fun none the less. I plan to do the striker, flash racing and harraser battle scenes tonight. I also want to redo the scene with the scythes in formation, it didn't come out very well in the video. I'll see if I can get Inlex in on it as well. Start time should be around 8:30 GMT, I shall be needing around a full squad of people to make this look good. Bring your fanciest cosmetics and driving skills.
