    Hey there, folks.

    Pretty soon, I'd like to begin to look into the idea of creating a promotional video for the server. I've got quite a bit of experience with video editing, so I'm sure I could come up with something pretty decent. I have some ideas in mind, and I know what type of soundtrack I will be using for it, but I want to hear your thoughts and ideas.

    I don't want it to be a typical cops n robbers type video, I want it to be unique and get people intrigued. If you have any ideas for what types of scenes could be included, let me know.

    Obviously, seeing as the client is not yet available, we will have to do our recording in GTA Online, but I'm sure we can make it work. I'd like to include as many of you as possible.

    Hit me with your ideas - I can't wait to hear them!

    This was one that was created from a SAMP RP server I played on way back. This was a s***** video, but I like the concept of having several different events are the camera is exploring throughout the town. Blaine County is large. Think of some of the first GTA V trailers where they encompassed several different aspects of GTA V.

    Maybe instead of just a floating camera.... we could have like a random person driving throughout Blaine County and witnessing several different things going on?

    I like that idea. I think that's something we could work off of. That video you linked to I think had the right idea, but it could have been executed better. With GTA V, I'd imagine we will have a lot more to work with over San Andreas.

    I completely agree. I think the concept itself is tasteful enough that we can do something simple, yet get the point across.

    What if it was from the perspective of a man coming from the airport in a Taxi? He looks out the window. The camera follows the taxi, switching perspectives from inside the taxi to bird's eye. It witnesses things happening throughout Blaine County like a short police chase passing by the taxi cab, a few people mining or cutting wood, and some roleplay in Paleto Bay. It finally switches back to first person view and the person begins getting out of the car. Just as the light begins to flare while exiting the vehicle, the camera pans upward to the sun and fades in the logo.

    I may also create some banners/posters for the server, and may be able to do some for the BCEMS and BCSO if the leaders would like to message me with any details or resources.

    Going forward, the EMS doesn't exist as a faction.

    [​IMG] This is a a quick sample banner I made early hours of this morning in a couple of minutes (which is why it's not perfect) as an example,and for a faction that doesn't exist.

    EDIT: Image is taken from a personal screenshot which can be found in my steam inventory.

    We can shoot a Courthouse sequence if we find a decent interior in GTAO
