View Full Version : Site Filmers - How do they work?

Basically - i'm a little confused as to how the Site Filmers aspect works. I searched on the shop, and couldn't find anywhere to 'purchase' a person to film your level.
Now i looked at the Site Filmers Guidelines and this is how the current system works:
ATTN:Site Filmers.

If you find a thread that showcases a level/object that you think is cool/interesting then go into LBP and play it. If you think it is of good quality then PM the creator saying that you will film it. If they reply with a yes, ask if they would like the whole video for their thread or a trailer* instead. Once they decide, film it and then upload it to youtube. Once on the internet, edit their thread so it shows the video.

Now, while that is indeed a good system, is there any way that we can request our videos to be filmed? Such as a separate section/thread in the forum? Apologies if i've missed certain instructions somewhere, but i've found nothing about requesting. If it's as simple as just PM'ing a Site Filmer, then I'll do that.

A small suggestion though - how about we have one thread in the Site Filmers section where people can post and request their level be filmed (linking to the thread where the level is posted - or at least giving the level info obviously). If this isn't possible due to technical difficulties though, fair enough.

You actually have missed a thread, but it's not in the Site Filmer forum at all. It's in the Level Showcase forum, or more specifically, here (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5265). That thread will probably answer all of your questions, but if not, let me know and I'll try to answer them.

I'm going to go edit that post you mentioned now so it provides a clearer description,

does everyone have access to the site filme forum? i thought it was just the site filmers, mods and admins.

No, just the people you stated. That's why i said it may be technically difficult.

It is possible to save yotube videos, certain programs let you do this.(I believe Real Player is one) However, I know I, personally, prefer to have them on my own youtube account if I filmed them, because I sure didn't have to film them. I know it doesn't really matter that much, but I like the extra views/comments/subscribers. :)
