derekwc presents: History of Comics On Film
« on: July 31, 2010, 10:45:34 AM »
Hey all. I posted a link to my site once in a comic-related blog thread here and JVJ was kind enough to help me out when working on Tex Granger.

Anyway simple version is that I was mainly inspired by James Rolfe and his Monster Madness Cinemasscre Reviews (also the Godzilla ones are pretty fun too!). I wanted to focus mainly on comic books adapted into tv shows and films. Kind of short synopsis and review with some historical perspectives and tangents thrown in for fun. I realize that there is a vast amount of material to cover and I probably won't have access to all of it, but I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot. There are plenty of classic Golden Age characters like Spy Smasher, Vigilante and Tex Granger who are covered. Hope you enjoy!

I'm up to #8 so far.
Not to be overly picky but I've noticed I've had to turn my volume down a touch for your voice overs and then the odd clip can sometimes be hard to hear.
Is there a 'normalize' feature for the overall volume of your editing software?  Just a thought.

Keep up the good work!

The first 16 or so were made using the software I had at the time (which was Windows Movie Maker).

Over the course of the project I branched out using other software such as Camtasia Studio and eventually Adobe Premiere. Also my recordings went from a logitech usb mic, to be edited in Goldwave, and eventually I just ended up using the onboard mic in my Canon XL-1 (which I prefer and will continue to utilize). Finding the right balance for the audio has been a learning experience, which I feel I got better at as time went by.

Let me know what you think when you get to the later episodes in the late 20s and 30s.

Edit: I just remembered, the .5 episodes were also made rather recently so you might see a noticeable difference when you get to those.

Hey PS,
Someone has produced an amazing fake trailer for a '1952' Avengers movie using a lot of the same clips you've featured in your history films.  (note I'm not accusing anyone of anything here)

I think People will enjoy this that have been watching your series -
