More Plans



January 30th, 2011 18:07 pm | by Ed |

In recent videos there's been something of a story beginning to start. It's completely unplanned and is being pretty much made up as I go along. It started the other day when, at the end of an otherwise normal video, the lights were switched off and the sound of several gunshots were heard.

In the next video it was revealed that one of the characters that appears in my videos regularly, Sir Gorf, is missing. From there the story is very much under development and it looks like it's going to get very interesting.

One of the things I think I'm going to need is to be able to show a "Shooter's eye view" of somebody using something like one of those cool Nikon rifle scopes to take out a target. The trick is that, because I really would like it to look realistic, I don't want to just make up a scope overlay in a graphics editor. What I'd really like to do is get a picture that is taken through one, preferably while looking at a well lit bright green color that I can chroma key out to give the appearance that the scope is looking at a target just before the shot is fired.

Short of finding somebody that has one and is willing to take such a shot, this is going to mean spending a crapload of time on Google looking for it.
