By now you’ll know of my near fanboi crush in Isinona, and you may also know I’m not alone as his amazing videos have been picked up by Frontier Developments themselves as shining examples of how to be amazing in their sandbox world – given he was making these amazing videos about Elite: Frontier, a 20 year old game at this point, as recently as a year or so ago I think it’s only fittings he (or she, I don’t know) is given a mention by FD because he/she obviously bloody loves what FD do.
What you may not know is that Isinona’s style has inspired me to start making videos myself. I had wanted to for a while now but I’ve struggled with the style as I’m not much of a talker and getting a decent patch of time to myself is hard. Well Isinona’s style is perfect because there is no voice over, only minimal text on screen to tell the story, which means I can stitch a tale together from various short recordings. So I’ve been trying it out this weekend. I still need to work on the overall look, but I like where I’m heading and have a much longer one planned documenting a very successful salvage trip from start to (profitable) finish. In the meantime here are the two short offerings I have come up with, one showing a terrible take off and the other a much cooler landing. Enjoy :)
