This is my entry for the @michellehodkin‘s ARC contest, for the third category (video). I made a trailer for The Retribution of Mara Dyer because it was never made for the publication of the book and I thought it was a good idea to make one before The Becoming of Noah Shaw comes out. I hope you like it!
[some self criticism+thoughts+ acknowledgments below the cut]
so i vamped up the civil war trailer, adjusted some clips, sorry if its a bit iffy because my laptop is being an asshole. music is False King by Two Steps from Hell. I don’t own the music or the marvel clips involved. only made this for practisEEEEE @ TUMBLR PLS DON’T DELETE ME LOL
“In the year 2037 all nuclear armed countries across the globe commenced a brief but rapid exchange of nuclear strikes, within two hours the old world was plunged into an abyss of atomic fire and radiation. Overexposure to nuclear fallout has turned over half the world’s population into mindless, cannibalistic creatures; known as ‘dead eyes.’
The year is now 2101.
Man has succeeded in destroying the world, but from the ashes of nuclear devastation a new civilisation is beginning to arise.
This, is their story.”
So, a little while back, before I started this simblr, video editing was one of my main hobbies. I loved creating videos, especially fanmade trailers, but since I started this blog I hadn’t really had the time! But then I started thinking, why can’t I combine the two? And here we have the result! I created a nearly 2 minute long fanmade Cinematic Trailer for my newest TS4 story ‘The Badlands’. I’ve seen plenty of fanmade trailers for fanfictions before, but it’s something I’ve never seen done within the Simblr community! (and y’know, I’m always looking for new things to bring into the community!) It was a lot of fun, and I’m actually fairly pleased with the result! I’d love to hear your guys opinions! Not just on the trailer, but on the whole idea of cinematic trailers for Sims stories!
