Filming has begun!

I've had a lot of feedback from you all, encouraging me to go ahead with 'Pleasantview'.  I am so flattered that over a hundred people voted on my poll and 98% of you want me to continue!  So ... I started filming today.

It was a relief to see that all my files were intact and I didn't have to rebuild or reload anything.  I was also surprised that I remembered all the game cheats and the film techniques I use - like riding a bike :)  I had to purchase the latest version of Corel Video studio, which is a pleasure to edit with.  I'm having a lot of fun.

One thing though.  I can't get the resolution to look exactly the same as it did on the old computer, so the video looks just a little stretched now.  I've spent a bit of time mucking around with it, but I cannot replicate the old 'look' exactly.  But I'm happy with it, I just hope you guys are.

If you go to my new Pleasantview site you will see that I have posted Chapter One of Dina and Mortimer's Honeymoon.  I will be posting more over the coming days and weeks so check back when you can.

Ok, that's about it for now.  Thanks so much for your interest and support, it's very motivational :)  I'm going back to filming now ...

  2. Trust me, that little tidbit on the resolution? Non-issue, silly! considering everything with youtube's HD changes & the full movies being on there now, I'm as used to it as I am playing the game, lol!

    Thank you so much for letting us know how its going, & I'm happy to see the wedding story uploaded again, it really helps define Dina's character even more! ^^

  3. :) You made a lot of people happy. This series was one of the best I've ever seen and was sad when it stopped. I'm glad to hear it's back to start again and one technical glitch won't be an issue!

  8. Doons,

    I can't even begin to describe how excited I am that you've decided to start up Pleasantview again! I've looked at all the machinima on youtube and there's nothing that compares to your work. I'm looking forward to seeing if all of my predictions for the series are true! Thank you so much for returning :D

  29. hello doons99p, I'm so happy now that the first image of Pleasantview 3.8 named "Winter Bites" is seen. A really great surprise after school :) Thanks for it and keep it up!

    love greetings

    ReplyDelete
  30. yeah! 3.8 is not long away! Thank you, thank you,Thank you DOONS!! ! this is the best machinima project that I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm so glad that you have given up 3.8! Well a little bit of it ... :) It therefore means "Winter Bites". Sounds really exciting! And I agree with Anonymous: This is the best machinima project I've ever seen. I watch almost every day on YouTube a few, but none is as demanding and exciting as yours! PS: I'm not from here and hope everything is spelled correctly :)
