Years ago gmod brought about the appearance of random “Robot Chicken” videos. They were all a bit junk. I thought that we could do better. So I began experimenting with fraps and Source Recorder. One day, someone named Danny the Magical Turnip joined a “movie recording” server that I was experimenting on. He loved the idea and we started recording clips… enough so that I knew I had to make Disorientation.
Regrettably, we took a looooong time to finish. I also found myself relying more and more on SP recording to get the more complex “story” clips. Then I started editing with the most limited software possible… Windows Movie Maker.
The final product was 33 minutes and 35 seconds long and included a ton of stuff that wasn’t really needed. I basically wanted to include everything that any other players contributed and not leave anyone out.
And Idiots of Garry’s Mod came out while I was still recording and editing this beast. So this really never felt as good as it should have.
Given time, I would re-edit this down to the 10 minute video. However, I eventually re-posted this as a special video for the forum VIPs. I added annotations for commentary and had really planned to re-edit this again some time soon with my current skills and tool-set. But I think I’d rather just move on to the next video instead.
With the addition of this new BorderWorlds site, I think it’s time to bring this special original edit back into the light of day.
