Making Another CoD Parody: Suggestions & Ideas Wanted!
 
Good afternoon folks!

Before I ask for your comments, I would like to set the scene for you:

As you may know from watching my Avatar short film, making movies for viewers on YouTube is one of my favorite hobbies. Over the past two years, my film group and I have worked very hard to create several parody videos based on the Call of Duty franchise. When our first parody made it's debut back in September of 2009, we had no expectations, but within a few months, our video was noticed and commented on by InfinityWard themselves and retweeted afterwards on Twitter by FourZeroTwo, InfinityWard's big dog community manager. In short, that gave us all a ton of confidence, and it boosted our first video up to 50,000 views; where it is today.

In the eyes of the video game community on YouTube, we were famous...so we decided to entertain our fans even more by creating a three-episode mini-series: Men of Duty in anticipation for the up-coming Modern Warfare 2. Once that was done we took a break from making movies for a while and enjoyed playing the game itself until December rolled around and we decided to get serious about making an official parody for Modern Warfare 2 that our fans had waited for for the longest time. It took us 2 full months to dish out the finished product but once we did, the results and fan-response were tremendous. The end result after all that work was this:

YouTube - Official Modern Warfare 2 Parody and Rap

SO, why is this thread here? Well, my film group and I were thinking about entertaining the fans for another time before the Summer ends and making another Call of Duty parody.

If you have watched the videos that I have posted above, then you know how our film company works:
We base our videos off of the funny aspects of the game.

If you can think of any ideas that you would like to see come to life in our next video, please post them here.
We will recognize you for being helpful for the production of the video and put your name in the credits.


Thank you for all of your thoughts and suggestions.

You could always make fun of the annoying things of the game like noob tubes, commando, someone stealing your care package, hiding from air support, everyone on the enemy team having cold blooded, ENEMY AC130 ABOVE!!!!, boosters, hitmarkers, etc, etc...

HEY!! I love commando! That video was great. subscribed. I agree, you should make a video based around things like commando, heartbeat etc......

X.,.Pandora.,.X 07-31-2010 10:32 PM

wich one was u in the first vid?

Советский меч 07-31-2010 10:43 PM

Haha look how our avatars match. Since he said he was making the video I just assumed that he was the star of the video.

X.,.Pandora.,.X 07-31-2010 10:45 PM

lol our avatars do match, except mine is real...

Советский меч 07-31-2010 10:52 PM

Are you suggesting that my avatar is only a figment of my imagination! Im sure you know this but that picture of your is fake in its own way. The photographers actually missed the first flag raising so they had different soldiers come back up the mountain and pose for the photo. Still an epic picture though.

No, it was the first flag raising wasn't filmed. The original flag was taken down and given to the CO of the invasion force as a gift. The second flag was put up by a group of soldiers without ceremony. However, a photographer took a blind snapshot of them, and managed to get that image.

Read this book.

Советский меч 07-31-2010 11:31 PM

Meh. The same difference.

Isard 07-31-2010 11:32 PM

No its not. You said it was blatantly faked. The fact that the image itself was captured was a miracle.


Those four guys weren't special, or an honor guard. They were four guys who just survived hell, and were given a dead end duty afterwords that became one of the most iconic images of the war in the pacific.

Hunter of the Glade 07-31-2010 11:41 PM

Thanks for the good ideas folks, keep them coming.

In the very first video, (CoD 4 Parody) I'm the 3RD "Hi Infinity Ward" (The light-brown haired kid who looks like Eric Foreman with glasses) Lol...that was nearly a year ago I look so different now. :P

In the "MW2 Official Parody & Rap" video I'm the person near the right of the table firing at enemies during the Painkiller scene...
also I played the Painkiller dealer: "Heeere...take these Painkillerrrsss..." :P

Anywho yeah, keep posting guys I'm loving the ideas keep em flowing

***Edit: I said 2nd originally, sorry, lol my mistake...I'm the 3RD "Hi, Infinity Ward."

^ This, ive read the book he pointed out to you several times. It isnt a fake or staged photo, just a bunch of regular guys in the right place at the right time. Brush up on your history.

Isard 07-31-2010 11:58 PM

I beleive harvester is Russian. So chances are, US history is not going to be a strong point.

I'd assume that you'd have little knowledge on the specifics of Russian history as well Pandora.
(I know I dont.)

X.,.Pandora.,.X 08-01-2010 12:01 AM

I know more than most about the russians in ww2

Советский меч 08-01-2010 12:36 AM

This is my last off topic post. My friend. You may not realise this but there is much more history to study than just world war 2. Even so I prefer to study modern warfare (not the game).Your one of the typical history buffs that sit on their high horse and look down on everyone who doesnt know every last detail about events that occured over 60years ago. I have a friend just like you.
