Hey guys,

My excitement for the upcoming Banner Saga Chapter 1 release inspired me to put together a video of some of the drop dead gorgeous artwork, and assemble it in a bit of a trailer for the single player game. I'm in no means a professional, so don't be too critical. I hope you enjoy it! Check it out on YouTube here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olAvSyNwKyE

Cheers!

Awesome work, Slimsy! Thanks :)

What program did you use to make this? I decompose it as (1) still-images that are panned or zoomed, (2) text that pops up, (3) music.

Suggestions for future works:

Inserting moving-video would be really awesome too. Actually, I'd love to have the upwards-thrusted-spear & thunderbolt (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=SaHqVJIdCww#t=46) as the music re-enters near your video's finale, here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=olAvSyNwKyE#t=157).
Also, for the text, you could use the standard font-type used in-game; its called vinque and it's free (http://www.dafont.com/vinque.font). Here's you:

I'm happy to hear the positive response! It's always nerve-racking to put something up like that to be exposed to creative discretion!

I just use a free program to put the video together called "Movie Maker". Anyone that has Windows 7 can download for free from Microsoft with a simple Google search. It basically just allows you to lay image or video files in sequence then drop a corresponding layer of music and/or text onto and off the screen.

In the future I'd love to play around with more video of the Saga. I've done some stuff with gameplay video, but in the absence of twitch the software I would use to capture video will fairly substantially downgrade the quality. I would hate to muck up that artwork! I just use free stuff because I don't mess around with it too much, I'm not all that techie, and I'm an amateur :)

There is too many three-dots punctuation :P
Also you voice-over would be a great addition to that trailer!

Thrilling nevertheless

PS Also I've immediately answered "ghostbusters" after a question "so whom do you call upon" emerged.

Yea I was saying it would be awesome to make a cinematic trailer, even fanmade, based on what's out so far XD. Perhaps a new one is in order Slimsy? :p

I would love to! The problem is it would not do any justice to the beauty of the content as I would have to take screen capture software to the existing video content which would downgrade it's quality. Is there a fan site kit or anywhere where I could get access to the already released trailers and videos in a video format (i.e. not YouTube)?

Not currently - however I'll see if I can get some stuff together!
