Black Iron [Mass YouTube Series Recruitment]

Discussion in 'Community Discussion' started by fluffinator09, Aug 9, 2014.

  1. Hello Empire Minecraft!
    (I apologize for the enormous amount of text you have to read)

    For some while I have been juggling the idea of creating a
    YouTube series like the original SoI.
    Shadow of Israphael was a hugely successful
    YouTube series that started out as a normal survival series that turned comedy/drama
    after they decided to add a bit of story and some typing characters.

    So I want to produce something of equal story magnitude. I have this huge obsession
    with creating an amazing story, alas, I'm no writer. So I've instead decided to set out on creating a Minecraft story epic. For this I am asking anyone that would be interested in helping
    out, be it by creating custom skins, building the locations we need, being any sort of character,
    a writer, or video editor, we need you! Just fill out ONE of the applications below
    to get started!

    Brief Description: A writer will basically give all the Supporting Characters and Random extras their roles and personas.

    Why should I pick you? (Paragraph please) : The main reason why I think you should pick me is because I have a rather quick typing speed. My typing speed ranges from 70-80 words per minute which is considered higher than the average typer. I am also a quick-thinker and I am able to absorb the information that someone has told me and reply instantaneously, well, not exactly instantly, but you get my idea.

    Can you fill the requirement of reacting fast?: I have a rather quick reaction compared to my colleagues. In my opinion, I can definitely fill the requirement of reacting fast.

    Ign: Neuro98

    Why should I pick you? : I have a high typing speed (the highest in my high school) at 86 GWAM. This will allow the story to move on quick no interruption. Also I have a bit of a history in comedic acting. (Dont know if this is necessarily relevant) but I played elf in a tenth grade play and was part of an improv comedy group at my school club. I also can react to information quick and come up with improv. This helps me in many ways not just in talking but also improv in lead elec guitar. People tend to tell me that I send texts before they have a chance to think about the previous one lol.

    Can you fill the requirement of acting fast?
    I pride myself in a pretty quick reaction speed in many ways. Improv comedy, and lead guitar in my band. Also, I have a pretty decent set of quick comebacks lol.

    Please enclose a small piece of your writing abilities in a spoiler:
    Give me something to write about...
    (Poem,short story,haiku,etc.)

    Why should I pick you? (Two paragraphs, because you want to be a writer!) :
    I should be chosen as one of the writers for the series,since I able to create detailed story, events that will put the characters through conflict through out the story and create an epic story that focuses mostly on the journey to the end,but also has a great closing to the story.
    The story that is going to be created for the series is going to very creative and detailed, it will allow for a very detailed plot that will use all of minecraft's potential. The characters will be very detailed and it will go into their backside (with books and clues to what occurred etc.), the player being the characters will seem like real people in the plot and won't seem like cookie cutter characters from generic stories.
    The events from the start to the end will flow to together and won't be like random parts of movies/video games mashed together, the events will tell the story the characters are going through and others they meet in the adventure. Some events may need extra characters that will only be there for that part of the plot. (I nothing else to say about the events :p)
    The epic story will focus on the events that occur, the story will contain a moral that will bring viewers to come and watch. The story will seem like it comes to an end ,but does not. The journey of the story will be the biggest part of the story rather then the end of the story with a big finale that will create suspense.

  19. Before the events of the invasion, I lived a normal plain life, hardly talk any of my neighbors. I spent most of my time on the computer playing MMO's and talking my friends from skype. The day it occurred I was playing World of Warcraft and was grinding to cap my third character, a warlock ( I don't know anything about WOW). Then I heard loud sirens coming from the town nearby, it the sirens worried me as I push the blinds to see what is going on. I saw large clouds of smoke rising from the city, this terrified me, I quickly logged off of WOW, turn off the computer and ran to the car. I quickly went to the nearest store or anything that will have supplies. it felt like the right thing to do. I stopped at a marketplace that had about ten stores. I saw people runs in and out of the store carry, what seems to be, stolen items. I ran into the store and took anything that was still left. When I was ransacking what was still left, I thought to myself,could this be a zombie invasion. I asked people what was going on,but no responded and ran away. I finally got to a person and ask them, them replied,"There's like spaceship in the city and it's dropping some type of animals into the city.It seemed like aliens came,so I decided to not go to the city and go to another city that was close by. When I was the city population sign I saw buildings on fire, I seemed to be trapped,then another car crashed into me. My car was pushed to the side of road, and I was unconscious...
  20. I'm going to apply for Video Editor :)

    IGN: sambish20

    Experience as an Editor: I'm an official EMC YouTuber, my experience has lead to multiple server promo videos, EMC videos and just my general hobby of it.

    Please link me to 3 or more videos you have edited: You can find most at my YouTube channel (Thesambish20), but I keep some private, I only have 2 good ones I can show you right now as the other one is a new, upcoming video that I can't share. But here are 2 links to 2 short edits I made. . . I can do much better than those with time, as the new video I'm working on shows. And in-case you're wondering why I choose the same song for both of those videos, I didn't want to spend forever finding a song, I wanted to focus on the video for those. I will mention that my skills have improved a lot though since I made those videos :)
