Working on a 30 anniversary video for NG04/B/S/S+, need help!

Post by Royta » Thu Aug 02, 2018 3:03 pm

Hey all!

So a year ago I wrote a pretty sizable article on the development, combat and personal tale of Itagaki and the Ninja Gaiden community at large. With the 30th anniversary of Ninja Gaiden coming up in October this year, I wanted to turn it into a non-profit video to give the series the love it deserves. :ninja:

You can find the original article here: http://www.stingermagazine.com/2017/03/ ... esent.html
I will also update that article (its formating, typos etc) for the anniversary so that it is all nice and shiny for the big day.

But here's the kicker, I need help with the video. I have a ton of footage myself of Black and 04, but I was wondering if I could use some footage from users here and credit them in the video for it. As noted this is just a passion project that I do in my free time, and I really want to show the series at its best. So if there are any here who don't mind, let me know. I'm not sure what footage I'll need, but if you are game just link your channel and I can take the footage from there. I'll credit your name and channel in the footage itself and put it in the description.

If you don't have footage but just want to help out, let me know too. I'm sure I can use all the help I can get to make this as amazing as possible :sunnyd:

Cheers! :thumb:

This sounds like a great idea, I've linked my channel below. If you want to take anything let me know and I can send you the original video which would be much higher quality than ripping it from youtube.

Are you going to take footage from all ninja gaidens or just 04 and Black?

Cheer JTB! Amazed to hear you have your original files, I usually delete them after a while. Good stuff. I'll keep you posted! I should have the audio finish by next week, after that I'll make a list of the footage I need.

I am a bit of a perfectionist. The video will cover 04, Hurricane 1&2, Black, Sigma and Sigma Plus so I'll be using footage of those. If I really can't find any I'll use trailer footage, but I'd prefer to also use this moment to let the community show its teeth if you know what I mean :)

Same here for me but my old originals look pretty bad now. The gameplay and the quality of the video. :razz:

I honestly prefer the 'old rugged 180p recorded with a camera' look. Ninja Gaiden is a classic. It should be shown a bit in that light as well I feel. Gives it that mysterious 'found footage of this insane master ninja' feeling :P

Few updates:

- recorded the full voice-over, busy processing the audio now and removing errors, breathing etc.
- setup for the first chapter is complete, I hope to have a full video-list done by the end of next week so I can ask everyone for the footage that I need.

Now one special note is that the video has a part where I talk about the community, Iberians, Ninja Archives etc. and one part notes the following:

"When a video was shown of two players who’d met online that were now sitting on one couch playing Ninja Gaiden Black together with a few beers, the feeling was heightened. Was this what Itagaki was secretly striving towards?"

I honestly can't find this anywhere anymore. I think it was Bigalski, perhaps meeting up with JTB and some other users. I'm okay with just putting NGB footage under that piece of text, but if there are pictures or videos that you don't mind me using, please share them.

I think you're right. Wasn't Weibull in there too? Bigal will know.

I have a few vids of playing with IW, Weibull, and Psaren and a lot of pictures of people I've met along the way. Just let me know what you'd like.

This sounds wonderful! If you could we-transfer those to me or via some other way I'd love that. Otherwise the pictures are also good. I'll PM you my email.

I have Sigma plus on Vita but no way to do direct capture unfortunately.
