CK2: Reason Behind the Wait

Cereal Killerz 2: The Reason Behind the Wait

Now many of you have been wondering what has been taking you so long Pat? Well, as someone who likes to make videos every once in a while I thought I would try to inform you of some of the things that go into making a video – especially one of a caliber as high as a MWAG production.


Well, as everyone knows – paintball videos are all fake. That’s right – COMPLETELY staged! You see, filming paintball is extremely hazardous. There are little paint capsules flying around at 200mph! They hurt, and get **** dirty (this is no good). No one in their right mind would take their expensive equipment out onto the field unless they were going to stage 100% safe shots. Some even need to be done on green screens – they would be way to risky in a field situation.
A quick shot of the studio.


Additionally, in a film such as Cereal Killerz 2 we are dealing with professional actors. Some of the “super xtreme” things they have to do for a good video are not allowed by their agents. They have to be in top-top shape for tournaments and can’t be diving, or getting shot for that matter (could cause an infection ya know). Therefore, everything you see is done with stunt doubles. Lots of special effects and camera trickery complete the charade so you, the ignorant viewer, have no clue.

So yes, the filming takes a very long time, but we are going to take a step back here – to pre-production. With the immense effort put into staged shots it is important to create detailed scripts and storyboards for all the action we see. Did you know that “Heroes for a Day” wasn’t the slightest bit true? That’s right folks, it was a collaboration of the MWAG, Millennium, NPPL, PSP, XSV, with some addition script writing help by the Coen Brothers.
You may not have picked up on the actors but here’s a quick screen of Matty’s part in Lord of the Rings.


Anyways… pre-production. Pat spends countless months studying famous films paying particular attention to mise-en-scene, acting styles, editing, cinematography, genre elements and of course sound.
Here be one of his books: Art of Film.


So we have talked about pre-production and the good ol’ shooting stage. What’s left you ask? Ah, I’m glad you asked. Post-production. Now our friend Pat has stated that CKII has been in “post” (for short) for quite a while. What does it entail? Well first he has to capture the footage. This requires him to project the footage he gets from his camera through a SUPERHIDEFINITION TV, then, using a SUPERHIDEFINTION webcam on his computer to film this projection and make the transfer from camera to computer complete. Very laborious process – trust me. Then obviously he has to cut (edit) his lil movie thang. Using the scripts from pre-production, he puts together a rough cut. He then has to play around to get the perfect combination. Naturally, the special effects are applied in this stage as well. Many a day and night go into this editing.
Pat hard at work! Lots of Coffee!! Yay!!!


Ok, so the movie has been planned, filmed and cut. Done? NO! The post-production still isn’t done. Pat has to go through frame-by-frame and color correct EVERY SINGLE PIXEL. To add, Pat firmly believes that the real art is in the journey, not necessarily the end product. Therefore, he does his color correction the manly way - in Microsoft Paint. He exports all the frames into the program, then, continues to blot away with pen tool. Before you know it, about 13-16 pixels are done. Only a little over two million more to go for that frame Pat!
A quick screenshot of Color Correction.


I’ll spare you guys the technicalities of getting that finished product onto the shelves and PBNation Online Store, but I would also like to address one other side-project that has been crippling the advancement of CKII. This would be the PSP Webcast. Sources have told me that they have up to fifty different cameras on one field at a time. Surely that’s the only way they have been able to capture so much action in such a professional looking package. I think we should appreciate all the work that goes into this coverage of some of our favorite events.
For a sense of scale. Epic cameras.

The sad thing is that I really don't. I was doing this instead of homework. Thus, I lost the opportunity to sleep.
