    New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    I made this viral video in support of wikileaks as mainstream media and the voices of the internet still seem to be competing for public opinion to a degree.

    It's not by any means perfect but, the intention is to rally support, i feel that if there ever was a time to stand up and be counted - the time is now.

    The attacks are on all fronts - Assange - with allegations and extradition, shutting down wikileaks, censoring the internet, and were moving closer and closer to a system that is more or less slavery through taxes.

    I don't know about you guys but i was always of the belief that you work to live not live to work.

    Anyway the overall intention here is to create awareness - draw support - do my part to create a better and freer society.

    I'm a bit new to all this and i'm no expert in marketing, or how to make things go viral or popular but if you watch the video and feel that it is something that is worthwhile others seeing any assistance in getting the message out in this video would be appreciated.

    In the title, "Your" should be "You're." Not trying to be overly picky, but it makes the whole thing look better if you get that right.

    Excellent!

    Just one spelling nit which was glaring:

    "A massive campaign was launched to expunge Wikileaks of the Internet"

    Bernie Sanders part seems kind of out of nowhere.

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    That's because it's Bernie Sanders.

    Amazing video!

    the opening is really good, but the television bit gets really boring; I agree about Bernie being out of place there, he's not talking about freedom of information; and the transition to the concert footage is a little weird.

    Not trying to shit on your hard work, it's just a little long and rambly to go viral in the way you're thinking.

    That's fine i can accept constructive criticism,
    sometimes you can get to close too something
    so another perspective is good

    There was allot of stuff that i wanted to get across
  15. Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    The opening is great. The concert scene doesn't really convey the message you're trying to get across, rather it's drawn out and tacky. At least for me. Goes down hill around Bernie Sanders part and the long interview with Australian guy and awful blonde Fox News harpie. I'd make it shorter, focusing largely on the hypocritical messages of the Obama administration as you've done in the beginning, and include more optimistic messages like those from Ron Paul shortly after that while transitioning from the war-zone imagery to one conveying some kind of hope.

    Good luck.

    I agree with all the stupid faggots who've posted ITT. Also, there are a bunch more typos. If you need help with that, PM me. The overall "essence" of this video is good and I'd be happy to help polish it.

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    Not sure what ITT means??

    Thanks for the critiques -
    and the offer to help make it better

    You have to keep in mind - i made this with an intended audience
    Part of it was to motivate people to find out more on their own
    than what was encompassed in the video whilst also defining some arguments around
    wikileaks and highlighting the hypocrisy around the internet and free speech.

    Not everyone will appreciate it obviously

    I knew that there was chunks of video during the tv bit and the worry was that people would get bored, but then i wasn't trying to make a masterpiece either

    I spent 3 days on it from initial idea to uploading. so i didn't think too critically on it as a piece of work. i'm sure it could have been done better.

    If anyone wants to take elements from the video and make it better feel free.

    For the opening sequence i used an after effects template by kenzei from Videohive and filled it out with allot of different elements. if anyone wants to do their own opening sequence.

    just make sure that where i use the statistics - i found it hard to track down definitive numbers so maybe check sources

    I thought it was great to have all those clips in one place and terrific juxtaposition.

    I have no idea why you tacked that song on.

    The opening is class "A" black helicopter propaganda good job if that is what you're shooting for !

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    It's really genius and you should not be killed.

    Fix the typos, kill the song, put some music over the quiet parts, and you are da man.

    Wonderfully done! <3

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    cheers

    the idea behind the song -

    Music and song is a very powerful motivator
    protests songs during the sixties helped drive certain movements
    Also (and not everyone will like this) but Baz Lurhman recognized the power of music and song when he made Moulin Rouge which was hugely successful.

    Again not everyone will like the actual song.
    and i hadn't heard to many recent protest songs
    but this one filled 2 categories

    1. can people sing it
    2. do the lyrics say something

    I saw the Vikings play in the Superb Owl and Dylan in the Metrodome.

    It just adds a boat anchor to a fabulous collection of weird shit people said in the last week.

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    It's a good video but it could have been a LOT shorter and MUCH more powerful using the same content by editing. It could have to and froed between each side. You could have ended the video with the JFK quote you showed at the start to hugely better effect. It will not go viral in its current form but you have the content there to make it do so.
  28. RolandRB Member

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    Yup, kill the song.
  29. Bretski30 Member

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    i'll have to revisit it.

    1. make it shorter -
    Is there consensus on cutting Bernie Sanders?
    kill the song.
    fix typo's

    Don't want to revisit opening title as it takes so damn long to render out.

    any other suggestions
    cheers

    There would be even better quotes to use from Hillary Clinton's remarks on internet freedom speech imho:

    Here are some

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    Also what's Obama even talking about at 4:30?
    I don't think he was talking about wikileaks there or was he?
  33. RolandRB Member

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    I think you should alternate between good and bad and it should progress such that good Obama and good Clinton alternates with bad and then it progresses into bad Obama and bad Clinton alternating with good. That's all you need. You don't need the JFK quote unless you have a video of him and he is at the very start. Let the viewer see that the US fine words have evolved into bad and so they have to make up their own mind.

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    No he was talkling about different groups of terrorists within Iraq and Afghanistan
    On the actual youtube page i put a disclaimer on this but that i thought it might seem relevant as so much terminology was centred around labelling wikileaks and others terrorists.
  35. Bretski30 Member

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    love the quotes however, i only had a small amount of that speech, which you see in the clip.
    Don't know where i can get the rest of it.

    I loved the video...
    one of my favourite quotes:
    Four things support the world:
    the learning of the wise,the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave”

    Re: New Viral Video - wikileaks assange open internet + free speech

    I thought i would update, that I left the video as is simply because the train had pretty much left the station by the time i looked at revisiting the video.

    Thanks for all the suggestions
    As at least i know for next time, that i will do things a little differently.
