I made a hype video to kill time before the season starts. It's the first video I've made so let me know what you think.
Michigan Hype Video
Really enjoyed it, loved the weaving of the Desmond interview. Looking forward to when the 2008+ teams make up more than 15% of the video.
A hype video without Nickelback is like an omelette without eggs.
Yeah, but at least he's kept with the network TV theme of fusing college football and AC/DC.
of the AC/DC bashing from one of the last year's BBall CILs.
I don't get it, myself. I thought the music was perfect (though FTATR is admittedtly less overplayed than, say, Thunderstruck).
I hope you're joking. Nickleback is the worst rawk band in the history of the universe. See below for just one of the many reasons why:
Thats just what I needed to start my day! Can't wait until game time!
That. Was. Awesome! I loved the Desmond part
Despite the lack of any Christopher Walken, it was somehow still pretty sweet.
.. to Minor RAGE.
i liked it
Very good. It is definitely one of the better ones I've seen
Keith Jackson at the end sealed the deal.
Are you the creepy white kid staring at the dude in the red?
Well that's DeShawn Sims in the red. And I can't really tell, but it looks like Stu Douglass behind him. So sources would seem to point towards, no.
Thanks for posting it. Always good to relive the happy M days.
This was a well produced Michigan video. I enjoyed it immensely. Keep up the good work and I hope there are enough highlights in this season to produce something comparable at the end of the year.
Great video -- loved the editing
Start the season, start the season, start the season!!!
This is definitely one of the better videos I've seen. I will be playing this on my TV on game days.
Got me excited for the season . . . and missing Charles Woodson BBHN.
I was merely enjoying the whole thing, but the Keith Jackson sound bite at the end sent me over the top. Nice job.
Got to say, I really liked it. I was moderately hyped for the season before, but now I really am. So, mission accomplished.
Damn fine job.
Damn fine job.
I've never been so pissed when my screen saver popped up in my life. The Desmond clip was gold. + a billion.
Also, sublime editing.
One of the better videos I've seen! Cant wait till we can start making vids with the new kids.
I liked it, pretty awesome. I got chills during some of the opening shots. Desmond's quotes were sweet.
Only critique is I would've loved to see the destruction of Penn State QBs from a couple years ago. Otherwise, badass.
that was badass!
but the boyfriend started bitching about the overuse of AC/DC for hype videos so I muted the video and played The Ecstasy of Gold in the background... and it was pretty epic, I really hope the band ends up doing something with that. If anyone cares, I used this one and started it roughly 10 seconds before the hype video.
I just tried it how you described, and I don't think there is any comparison to the original. The way it was edited flowed perfectly w/ FTATR, plus you miss the couple of voice-over clips that way. Desmonds was great, as was Keith Jackson at the very end.
It's a totally different tone than the original, and definitely wasn't made especially for the video, but just wanted to throw that out there for the RAWK MUSIK detractors.
I have been reading this blog for the last two years. This is the first time I have logged in to post. That's how much I liked this video. Very well done.
This is by far the best 2009 hype video that I have seen so far. Great job, hopefully for next year we can use a lot of highlights from this season.
Video was great.
Can't recall a better one than that.
Well done. Can't wait for the season to start. Gonna be fun.
Nice work. Hope this year gives us a few more highlights to fill up a hype video of its own!
Excellent video, thanks so much!
Great job, especially for a first try!
Great video- what did you use for the editing?
That was exceptional. I offer you my manliest high five.
I would have liked to see more current players, but of course you had most of the highlights from last year anyways. Here's to more plays from '09 that make the cut, eh? Keep up the good work and post the videos here when you have new ones please.
I love how you fit the music to the highlights, it was perfect! We need to include that video as part of pregame starting September 5.
The clip of Minor running over the Penn State defender, followed by a shot of Bo smiling was awesome!
Would anyone else love to see this video during pregame at the Big House? (Portions slightly edited)
I say put it on the video screens just after the National Anthem to get the fans pumped up before kickoff.
Does anyone here have connections to see if that's possible? Brian?
...the greatest thing... ever
Thanks everybody for the feedback.. Hopefully we'll have enough highlights this year to crank out hype videos weekly
My team and I use the same song when we KRAV IT UP in the Mat room. Gets the adrenaline flowing. GOD BLESS! GO BLUE!
Seriously, great job. That was excellent.
Judging by the 1500+ page views of this thread, I can not understand jswavel34 only having 66 mgopoints. The way I figure, this video was so awesome that maybe everyone that saw the video has had to come back to this thread at least twice to link it out to more people, so that's 3 views per person. That means about 500 people have seen this video, and therefore, you should have about 500 mgopoints.
I regret that I have but two points to give for my fellow MGoBlogger.
The video was so awesome it blew my mind. Cognitive thoughts returning in three...two...one.
Initiate upvoting sequence.
I've watched that video probably 20 times. I've shown my kids, I've shown my wife... hell, I'll probably show my wife again tomorrow. For me, it never gets old.
Give this dude some props. He should have at least 500 mgopoints by now.
Bold Ass Prediction:
1) jswavel34 will have 500 mgopoints this time tomorrow.
Of all the hype videos I have seen, this one is by far the best one. You make the video flow so well with the transitions as well as the music. I personally think that FTATR fits in perfect for this year, going with the team's attitude towards redemption from last year
It's funny how you won't see certain people post on a thread like this. Now...make a post poking a little fun at one of our rivals, or giving your opinion on a recruit, and watch out!
I'm just jealous his video is awesome and I haven't even started mine yet. I gave him +2 but didn't comment. Warm fuzzy overload.
That was a sick video. I would love to see a similar one with a more D focused vid as well! Seeing big offensive plays for the good guys is a great feeling. Seeing Michigan lay some massive hit on opposing players is an even better feeling.
What were the names of the songs being piped in at the Notre Dame game? I thought it all rocked. That stadium was the loudest its been in some time.
