Why not just use the 300 trailer sound track and put the clips in and see how it gos over?
Might go a long way to gain some interest.
But Im in I guess, just not sure how you plan to use it is all but I imagine you will edit as needed.

I'm thinking of doing this. If SED2 can do fur shading I'll put a pekingese there as a subject. It's not hard to model a pekingese dog.

Can it be with multiplayer and people really do the moves while recording SS demos to be replayed and rerecorded in something like Fraps to be put into a readable video format, then edited of course?

It should be multiplayer... or who else would be controlling the characters? Recording methods will be determined when the time comes. For now we're just looking for some writers.

I would imagie once we get a script together and everyone is there running on record the shots will be a simple matter.
I would suggest for those who attend though we use a speak program.
Make it simpler to give needed direction not to mention some fun.

I totally agree, Teamspeak ( http://www.goteamspeak.com/ ) is a really good voice chatting program if you have a microphone. That way when you are recording something you can coordinate with your little group of people a lot easier.

// Edit

Okay, I was thinking about doing advanced scenes but since cheats can't be enabled in multiplayer... Yeah... So umm, does anyone know where the check for turning off cheats in MP would be in the SDK? I'm gonna try and NOP it in memory >_>

We will all have to agree on what to use the sooner the better so we can figure out the setup in advance.

Hold it you guys. Some of you are jumping the gun here. All the technical stuff comes later. Right now we're looking for writers because if you don't have good writers then the series will suck. Don't worry about how something will be done right now. If it's impossible we can always modify the script, if not we can always code or mod something in that is needed. We have the resources to make this work, but we don't know if we have anyone who is up to the challenge of being funny and entertaining for an extended period of time. That is the purpose of this first part of the contest.

I forgot to mention this but everything will be done with Serious Sam 2 as the base platform. So when you are writing your scripts try to keep in mind the kinds of locations you have available to you.

How about something like the TrueNuff MAC spoofs on Youtube? Only in this case it would be spoofs on video games/characters.

If somebody wants to slap together an outline, I'll have at it to flesh it out. Too busy to come up with something on my own at the moment, but might have an idea or two in a couple weeks.
