Raven166 and a couple of his friends made a Fan Riff of Hollow Man, which was pretty funny.

I plan to record mine this week at some point. (I was planning to last week, but i suddenly got some severe allergies.)

I'm working on writing the 2nd half of my riff script for "Akira", and then I'll probably give it a second draft before recording.

Which dub is it based on?
Title: Re: Fan-riffings?
Post by: GregMcduck on May 29, 2007, 03:55:21 PM
The 2001 dub found on the speciel edition DVD. Though the older dub would be a whole lot easier to riff on, Netflix doesn't offer a DVD with that dub on it.

Too bad. I've got the Criterion laserdisc with that dub; I kept it after buying the DVD because of the dub.

I'm a sad, sad individual.  I'm one of those who will riff on fanfiction, of all things.  Heck, I've made fun of a lot of the posts that were made by an admin at a Kingdom Hearts roleplaying forum.  I lack the technology (and probably the finesse, as well) to riff on movies, short films, and Youtube videos and post the results online, so all the more power to the folks behind the fan riffings.

Hiya all I'm back! *I see everyone run for cover :'(*,
Well anyways... My brother Erik is a comedic genius. To see the movies he has directed with me and my younger brother pick one you want to watch, Or watch all of them. To watch them just scroll down and pick one...
I'm going to see if he can MST-a-size or Riff one of the 50 old B rated movies I have... Just a small portion of one to see if you guys like it. I might Riff with him if I can.

Here are some of the movies that my brother Erik Directed... They are not MST related but they are funny.

The Interview - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDnWVFq1ni0

Ron's Big Day - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-L54jL_3ekM

Mr.Brown's Big Day (Sequel) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q9ocpx2kaQ

Barbarians - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGujEjdXPSw

Well those are them : )... Enjoy!

P.S. We're both huge MST3K fans... And we have collected around 40 MST DvDs. And we love them! Thanks Mike!.

Ok... The movie my brother Erik will be riffing is "The guy with secret kung fu"... Again he is hilarious... I would put him as the next host for MST3K if I were to pick. It will be uploaded in a few weeks... Hope you guys enjoy it!

P.S. Hes 33 years old... So its not going to be some stupid un-funny teenager riff... He has experience in the comedy world.

Hey guys!
I uploaded a sample of the movie me and my older brother are riffing... 'The guy with secret kung-fu'.
Keep in mind that this is the first run through of the first 32 mins of the movie... And we're doing this is ALL ad lib... So we are going to run through it a few more times... Removing the dumb jokes.. Replacing them with the spectacular jokes. This is our first riff experience... Our first ad lib experience with a movie... And my first syncing experience with our own riff... As i said... Just a sample... -Enjoy!

I've often dreamed of doing a fan riff.....sadly, I lack a video camera, or even a mic/voice recorder.  But, I could volunteer my services as a writer for anyone who has such technology, and an interest in doing a riff.

Would it just be realistic, freestyle riffing like RiffTrax, or would it be character riffing, like MST3K?  If the latter, I had an idea that involves a suspected terrorist in Guantanamo Bay being forced to watch bad movies as an interrogation technique.

Oooh, that would be a challenge, since it's such a fun movie.  But even the most fun movies have hidden layers of cheese. 
I can imagine at least a few possible riffs. 

Bruce : "When my opponent contracts, I expand." 
Riffer : "That's when I reach for Gas-X™."

Bruce : "Boards don't fight back."
Riffer : "So boards are pacifists?"

Han : "We are investing in corruption, Mr. Roper."
Riffer : "Oh, I hear corruption stock went up 3 points today!"

I dunno, not really my best, but it would be a very hard movie to riff, and I'd probably need more than a few seconds of prep time to mull it over....   :-",

Fun movies are sometimes the most fun to riff.  ;D  A friend and I were watching it on SpikeTV late one night, making little wisecracks whenever we felt like it. I came to an interesting thought: Bruce Lee would suck at sneaking because every time he did something, he'd make those little "hwaa!" noises. I mentioned it, and we spent the next minute doing a "hua... hua.. hwoo-AAA! hee-ooooo...." soundtrack for Bruce as he snuck around the island.

Bruce leaps down stealthily
Me: "Hu-huaah!"

Bruce tiptoes through a dark room
Me (timed to each footstep): "Hua... hua... hua... hua... hua.. hua..."

Not to mention that nunchaku are just laughably overkill for him, since he only uses them when he's transformed into Crazy Bruce™, and by then, he can already kill people just by stepping on them hard enough to snap their necks (and often does).  And then he gets that goofy grin on his face, like he loves the feeling of human brains squishing between his toes.

Your username and signature also made me think.....how about riffing Kull the Conqueror? It was ten times as cheesey as Conan, and less than half as enjoyable.
Title: Re: FAN RIFFING
Post by: RobtheBarbarian on August 02, 2007, 05:10:08 PM
Could definitely do that too. I also thought about the Dawn of the Dead remake, but it might have a few too many kernels of humor in it and throw a wrench in attempts to riff it (it deserves it, though).

Probably the way I'd go about riffing is the same they they wrote jokes for MST - watch it a few times, write down good jokes and the time they correspond to, then compile them together and record a riff.
Title: Re: FAN RIFFING
Post by: ObscureGamer on August 02, 2007, 05:22:49 PM
I'd have a particularly easy time riffing any of the movies I listed in the top 10 most riffable films in another topic; particularly G.I. Samurai and Death Mask of the Ninja, since a friend and myself effectively riffed those two movies all the way through, which is difficult to do by improv alone.  But some movies, like those, just lend themselves particularly well to riffing.   

And obscure pop-culture references or complicated humor isn't always necessary for a great riff.....some of my favorite riffs of all time were when M&tBs would just bust out laughing at something or someone.

Geekza now has commentary tracks of a few movies in its podcast RSS feed. Here's some direct links:

Pirates of the Caribbean -- Download (http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-8230/TS-39366.mp3)

Back to the Future -- Download (http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-8230/TS-27761.mp3)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade -- Download (http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-8230/TS-10930.mp3)

We had Jurassic Park queued up at one point but ran into technical difficulties. We have to get back on that wagon at some point. We're talking about doing Ghostbusters this weekend as well.

NOTE: These are not riffs, per se, more live commentaries of general discussion about the film that occasionally spins into hilarity. Hope you enjoy.

By the way, I had a lot of fun with the Last Crusade commentary. I had a bit of trouble keeping synched, but mostly the timing didn't need to be perfect, and it was laugh out loud funny at points, interesting in all the rest. Downloaded the other two, and planning on watching one tomorrow.
By the way, I have all three of those movies in the house. I think you chose a good bunch of popular movies so far.

Ghostbusters is a no-go, the people we want to be there for that aren't available. Instead, doing a commentary on "The Matrix" tonight, starting at 7PM Eastern if you wanna listen live.

We've already made a pact that we'll be staying as far away as possible from Rifftrax jokes, though there's one in particular that you'll hear us biting down on our lips in pain not to shout it out. The Matrix still remains our fave Rifftrax so it's really, *really* hard.

For now you could put it on fileshare or yousendit, sites like those allow you to upload 100 megs or more. Depends on the site.

Just FYI, the next version of RiffTrax um.. may ... or may not.. have this feature. (I'm leaning towards a "Hell yeah it's gonna have that feature" myself.)

Unfortunately that's a ways away; so using other methods for now is advisable. We'll let everyone know when this feature is drawing nearer. I wish we could do it now, but there are some other logistics that are taking precedence, and we'd love to be able to hand all these new features at once on a giant silver platter. It'll be worth the wait, I promise.

For Geekza, we use Talkshoe (http://www.talkshoe.com) to distribute our mp3's, and it's worked out pretty well. I have a few beefs with their system, but they're minor and all centered around hosting live shows, which it sounds like you wont' be doing.

Freddy's Dead, for being the ultimate lie?
Dream Child, for being the most rapey of the series?
Dream Warriors, just to pick on the D&D geek?

You know, that's a really thoughtful thought. Apart from, like you said, the commentary that's already there, riffing a wrestling PPV could be awesome.

Actually me and my friends break into wrestling commentaries when we're riffing fight scenes in normal movies, especially when a wrestling move is used or there's a wrestler in the movie (think Blade Trinity).

"Woah, he's gonna have a tough time getting up from that one, J.R.!"
"You said it, and now... oh no, not the steel chair!"
"Now he's gone too far! This is just bru- what!? It's Edge! He's interfering with the match!"

The other problem is, if I were to pick any Wrestlemania to riff, I'd riff Wrestlemania IX, but I'm not willing to shell out the cash to get the overpriced Wrestlemania box set, and anyone else who'd listen to it would have to trust that WWE didn't edit it from the original broadcast, which is what I have on tape.

But come on, IX is the Wrestlecrapiest Wrestlemania ever.  Big goofy Indians.  Beefy Hawaiians being outsmarted by two identical clowns.  The ultimate battle between the US and Japan being fought by a Canadian and a Polynesian.  And of course Hulk Hogan's ego still getting the victory and winning the Championship in a match he wasn't even in.  It's like the Manos: Hands of Fate of wrestling.

Well, I finally bought a headset with (hopefully) a decent microphone on it, and i've got a few movies to play around with and try making fanriffs out of.  Is there anyone who can give me a little tip or two from experience?  Best way to record, any programs you like to use?  Should I try and duplicate something like the disembaudio lines for synching?

My first attempt is going to be the He-Man She-Ra crossover movie, Secret of the Sword, which I'll likely do alone.  I'm not sure if I'll get much good out of this, so I can't say whether or not I'll make it available.  I'll show it to my roommates and if it gets a laugh there I'll likely put it up somewhere.  If I can get a feel for it, I might bring in a friend or two for the riffs of the Nightmare on Elm Street series I've been pondering, and if think I can make one entertaining around the commentary over commentary problem maybe I'll get the Wrestlemania III one too.

My script is almost done for He-Man She-Ra Secret of the Sword.  I'll hopefully start recording next week.  It'll be worthwhile even if I'm just showing to friends in the area, but out of curiosity is anyone else interested in hearing it?  As far as I know it's only available as part of The Best of She-Ra box set when it comes to DVD.  There was a version with just the movie, but it's out of print.

Script complete, recording set for tomorrow.  Not sure about a timeframe for full completion as I'm going to start with a clean commentary to reauthor on my own dvd, then adding synch lines after the fact and adding an introduction to set it into the Rifftrax format.  If recording goes smoothly I could get this done this week, but no promises.

The slow crawl toward completion continues.  I finished main recording today (the riffs are in place) I'm watching it in the morning to make sure the riffs are timed properly, then I'm burning a reauthored sample copy.  If it goes well the next step is recording the into and adding in the synch lines and i'll be ready for posting.  As it is, the copy I'm working with should already synch perfectly with the movie from start to finish, so if there's someone who prefers to reauthor I can make that file available too, so you won't have to worry about trimming off the intro or silencing synch lines, just import the file and go.

Not quite sure if this is the right place to post this, so please forgive me if it's not. That said, here's a shameless plug for my latest riff... "Star Wars Trumpet Girl". I created it through cuts.com, and that version resides here (http://www.cuts.com/cut/a31f525966/). However, the completed Insti-Load version of the video (with the riffs already edited in) resides on YouTube right here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drsuPyztZqo), so no need to wait for the sometimes slow loading at cuts.com.

Okay, finally happening.  I'm planning on making my fan-riff of Secret of the Sword available this Friday.  I have what should be the finished version now, and I'm going to be testing it tomorrow, seeing if there's any tweaks on the audio levels etc I need to do.  I'll admit now the sound quality isn't what i was hoping for, and any suggestions for a good microphone or anything else that would help future riffs sound better would be appreciated.  It was a lot of fun to make though.

I just realized I have He-Man (1980's) cartoon season 1 and I think 2 complete so I might try my talents at the first episode just to see how it goes.  It will have to be done this weekend tho work an all.  I have already began a working idea for night of the living dead the original and yes Mike has already done a riff but I haven't heard it yet and I want to make my own so naahhhh or blaaaahhhh or uh huh huh huh yea yea heh heh heh

If you're talking dvd sets, and you have four big sets, then you should have the complete original series.  Glad I'm not the only one targeting this show.

As for Night of the Living Dead, go for it.  There's no rules when it comes to what movie can be targeted, though you might want to give the official one a listen to make sure you're not using the same jokes.

Ok... with great hesitation... I unleash my latest creation. A fan riff of one of my all time favorite cheesy movies... MegaForce!  But unlike others I've done, I've added a few riffs of my own to compliment those of Mike, Kevin, and Bill... so please be kind. And although I utilized riffs from cuts.com , the video is not currently available there for viewing (cause I don't like making people wait for slow load times). Instead, the "Insti-Load" version can be seen on my YouTube channel Right Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJHna4LuFLM). Or just click on the graphic below.

YouTube Description: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett, and special guest... me, have a good riff on the 1982 mega-cheesy movie, MegaForce. This movie stars Barry Bostwick and Persis Khambatta (aka... V'ger from Star Trek The Motion Picture), and is about as moldy as they come. Can you survive the whole ten minutes? Can you survive Barry Bostwick in spandex? I dare ya... I double dog dare ya!

I actually uploaded this a while ago to RiffTrax-DIY ... but seeing as how this is the end of the year, and Chris Crocker's "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!" video has been voted one of the most memorable YouTube video's of 2007, I figured I'd pimp it one last time. And of course, this is the Insti-Load version on my YouTube channel... as I wouldn't dare ask any of you to wait for the horridly slow load times at DIY (I do hope they speed things up some day).

Yeah... I agree. It was pretty predictable. And it certainly wasn't one of my proudest riffing moments... but seriously... there's only so much one can do with that clip.

I'd like to think that this riff was at least, a bit more creative...

Been thinking a lot (mostly at work, where I have very little else to think about) about fan-riffs to make, who to make them with and how to go about it.  So far I've had my hand in a few.  First, He-Man She-Ra Secret of the Sword, one I did with just a little help from my roommates.  Next I contributed to the Batman and Robin riff and I'm planning a contribution to the LXG track that Riff Raff Theater is working on.  I also have two trax "in production" with a different friend on each as guest riffer, with another movie being debated as the next target.  (More info on at least a couple of them in the next few weeks, though some of you have already heard a thing or two about my plans)

So far it's taken awhile to get each done, what with learning what the hell I'm doing, figuring out the best way to record, and getting used to my new equipment, but the most recent recording went real smooth and I'm beginning to think.  "You know, if this is getting easier, maybe I need something else to throw into it now and then to possibly screw it up and delay things needlessly"

Okay so the real thought is, "I wonder if I could handle running a collaborative riff," with a side of, "What movie would make a good collaborative riff."

If I decide to go forward on this, I'll probably come up with a series of polls or some kind of nomination process so anyone interested can chime in with their own suggestions.  This'll be a little while in the future, likely either a solo or two person riff, and I'll want a couple more of my own riffs available first so potential contributers can better decide if they like my style enough to submit a script.

Any thoughts or suggestions early on?

Good to know.  Got a few ideas floating around for possibilities, several of them being the often suggested trax that don't seem likely to get the full Rifftrax treatment.  (Not well known or available enough etc.)  Something like that seems like the perfect candidate, as the people who'd suggest it would be the ones more likely to download a fan-riff (I might not have that right at all, but it's a good thought.)

Flatliners ( I was one of the ones who had this on my list.

Interesting choices all, two of Greg's are already on my shelf too.  I won't say which except that Tim Curry might have back problems from holding up the headgear and David Bowie should never wear anything that tight again.   ;D

Dungeons & Dragons would be interesting to do, in fact I've sort of done it already with friends, just didn't have the means to record it at the time.

I have no web skills at all and a fellow board member offered to host my DVD covers so I asked him to host the riff too.  Wonder if he has a way of telling how many downloads we've had.  So far I know of one, and that was one of the Quiptracks guys friends from school.

Ok well I suppose I'll work on some icons then  :)

Oh and I alphabetized the index, by creator not by title of movie, I think I have those chronologically within each creator but do let me know if that's not the case.

So I was thinking something like this

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb319/TripeHoundRedux/00PP.gif)
For "Now Accepting Riffs"
For "In Post Production"

I need a nice "Now Available" sign but I'm having difficulty finding one so I might have to make one.
Title: Re: FAN RIFFING
Post by: Rude on April 21, 2008, 04:19:18 PM
...

I think the little symbol of the ear would work better for completed riffs. As in... "these are ready to listen to." Then you could find something as simple as an email icon or Windows' Notepad icon for "Accepting Riffs" to denote that they're still in the writing phase, or are currently accepting riffs via email.

Either way, at the size you've posted those images, they're going to take up a lot of room. Maybe consider just using simple keyboard characters?

Whatever happens, thanx for taking on the task. It's actually a really helpful list.

I'll look around for a note padish symbol.

I still say its a good idea because new people may not know where to look, stumble upon the Fan riff page and find the guides. I mean, it really breaks down to being or not being an inconvenience for Tripe.

The index is easy enough because I list things by producer, but I'm not sure if I can do something all that useful with the technical guides   :-\

OK I like the idea of collation points (my index, gammer's "yearbook") but one possible problem I see is I'm not sure how many there are and how to really categorise them.

The index is easy enough because I list things by producer, but I'm not sure if I can do something all that useful with the technical guides   :-\

Well, I don't mean to be combative, the final decision is of course up to you. It's only a tripealing matter.

Ba boom.

So I updated the index. (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,8239.0.html)

I think I've described everything correctly. However if I've not or I'm missing any riffs please let me know via a PM :)

Out of curiosity (as I've thinking about getting into the fan riffing fun myself), how do people generally go about writing the riffs.

Do you watch the movie in parts and and write the riffs or keep watching the entire film over and over again and writing as you go (or some third option)?

I did riffs for The Fugitive and I watched it through once writing as I went then I broke it into half hour segments or thereabouts.

But I'm not sure there's really a hard an fast method for doing it.

I tend to watch it once just to keep the whole story fresh in my mind, then I do a little research on it (make sure I know the actors and director and other movie references I could make, IMDB is a godsend at times.)  Then I'll watch it in 5 to 10 minute increments, starting and stopping for writting, with second and third passes as necessary to fill gaps.

OK so while i agreed with the points about the re-authoring guides and the like initially, over time I think i can see why we might need a section of the index specific to fan riff creation (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,8239.msg289754.html#msg289754).

Right now there's just a link to the Riff Raff Theatre submission template but I'll do a search for more (not re-authoring per se but tech guides specific to creating the riffs)  :)

As I mentioned above, this one would probably make a good addition for that.

So here's a puzzle.  Is there a way to get audio from my computer to two different audio outputs?  I bought a second USB headset since I'm mainly recording two-person riffs and it would be a big help to actually allow both riffers to hear the movie audio as we riff.  I can only get the sound on in one of them at a time though.  Any ideas around this?

If they weren't USB, you could just use an audio splitter....
