Title: ICWXP
Post by: Edward J Grug III on March 10, 2008, 07:25:04 PM
I think they are pretty funny and expect them to get better as they go along.

I look forward to episode two.

Does anyone know what movie they will be riffing yet?

Yes. The next movie is Lady Frankenstine, to be followed by "Bloody Pit of Horror"  (with short The Talking Car) and then The Satanic Brides of Dracula with short Ghost Rider (no, not the Nicolas Cage one)

Oh wow, they've planned pretty far ahead then.

Lady Frankenstine sounds pretty cool!

And is there a release date yet?

Post by: mrbasehart on March 10, 2008, 07:48:06 PM
Someone said the end of this month in the other thread.  I've seen Lady Frankenstein before, and it's got some nudey bits in it, so I'm guessing either the show is looking to be a little more adult with its offerings or they'll just cut it out.

Is there an official link for these guys other than that MySpaceTV website. I've tried to watch that preview video a coupla' times now and it take forever to load... to the point where i just give up. I haven't seen anything past the first intro skit, dammit.

Thanx. I supposed that i should've guessed that one myself, huh? Well, regardless... their website is nothing more than a link to the same MySpaceTV video for now. I'll keep an eye on it though. They have to update it eventually, right? Either that, or i'll just walk away from my computer tonight and let the stupid thing take it's sweet time loading... then hope i don't forget about it and just close my browser tomorrow morning!

Their MySpace person, who is super duper nice and quick to answer, said the nudity is left alone, but they're going to cover it in the internet preview.

She also told me they're probably dropping Satantic Rites until later when they can afford to buy the rights because there's an issue determining if it truly is public domain without going through a lot of legal crap. 

How would someone even find out if a movie was public domain if it was in question?  Entertainment Layer?  I'd love to see them riff that movie.

I also heard they're gonna do "Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory" in Satanic Rites' steed for now.  Hilarious title.

Check out YouTube and search for "icwxp" and you can watch the first 30 minutes.  Sadly, because YouTube is the shitehole it is, it's split into several different parts.

Not necessarily!  I've seen Satanic Rites for a few bucks in the Wal-Mart bin many moons ago just like you've said, but it seems some people think Hammer still owns the rights and it can cost as much as $10 - $15 bucks online.

On it's archive.org page, someone wrote:

o_o huh.

If that's the case, then how can anything made after 1938 be available for riffing, and why do the same movies seem to circulate within movie mega packs? How can some movies be played, viewed, and even downloaded legally for free? 
Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: MSTJedi on March 11, 2008, 05:51:57 PM
If I remember correctly, movies newer than 1938 can be considered public domain because the original makers never bothered to copyright it.
Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: Fuzzy Necromancer on March 11, 2008, 08:43:58 PM
But the quoted Archive.org post says that copyright arisese automatically. As long as you create the work in question, record it in some permanent fashion, and put some time and effort into said creation, you have a copyright.
Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: allhailtheriff on March 12, 2008, 02:36:56 AM
Very confusing indeed.  There are definitely movies newer than 1983 that are in the public domain, although if you ask me to name any I'll run away.  lol.

I suppose if someone who might have rights to a movie in the public domain stepped forward, they could renew the copyright?  I don't know.  I don't see anyone from Bride of the Gorilla doing that, or... even still being alive, ha.

Wish there was some website with an accurate list of public domain movies.

i don't know jack about copyright when it comes to public domain stuff, but it seems logical that yeah, if you recorded your movie (and it's a movie - of course it's recorded!! lol) you have a copyright - but you gotta claim it first and protect yourself, or it expires?

i'd like to see them do an 80's flick.  some of the gooniest crap came out in the 80's.

Title: Regarding copyrights and the public domain.
Post by: indybuda on March 16, 2008, 05:22:01 AM
In 1989 the copyright laws changed in the US. It became assumed from the point of creation that the creation was copyrighted whereas before that, the creator had to copyright the film, music, script, or whatever. So... if the creators failed to copyright something prior to 1989, or at the very least forgot to include the copyright mark and the date on the film in the credits or wherever, then it is technically public domain.

Title: CT fans not digging ICWXP or RT?
Post by: allhailtheriff on March 28, 2008, 06:32:45 AM
Ya know, I got curious and checked out Cinematic Titanic's website.  It's very bare bones, almost laughable I'd hate to say.

But my point is that the folks on their board seemed to mostly have negative responses to our controversial new friends ICWXP.

I also felt the general attitude there was a bit negative toward RT.  Has anyone else noticed CT fans have a distaste for RT and thus Mike & Co.'s supposedly "meaner" riffing style?

I was just curious as to what their board was like and a lot of the users there came off really closed minded to me.  ??? ???

RiffTrax is like modern music. Everyone can get into it and it's fast and easy to get. It reflects the times in which it was released. A generation's struggles and joys are represented by each artist's own unique perspective and style. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but, instead, does whatever it can to cater to the fans.

Cinematic Titanic is like classical music. It's getting back to the basics and it doesn't deviate from that. Like a great, aged painting, it maintains the same feel over the years, bringing the audiences back to a more civilized time in humanity's past. It tends to take itself more seriously and, therefore, the fans tend to be a bit more presumptuous. They see it as the pinnacle of fine art, laced with subtleties that modern music is unable to provide.

Whatever side you take, you're not wrong.

Wow.

I fail to see much difference between the two, as far as sense of humor.  Even ICWXP is very much in the same vein as RT & CT.  In keeping with the music analogy, I would say that they all play rock music, they're just different bands.

RT is all out hilarious and modern with razor sharp humor, ICWXP is rapid fire and ridiculous in the vein of Family Guy or Conan O' Brien, and CT is kind of old school pop references. 

In any case, I love you guys on here and I won't be joining the CT board any time soon.  Things are just nicer here and people seem to smile more.   :)

I don't see why ANYONE should hate ICWXP. It's a fan riffing project. If anything, we should be kind to them as they have not done anything to us. We should embrace them like we do for RT, CT, and other fan riffing projects. To single out ICWXP because they are better than many fan riffing projects is like singling out twinkies because it's better than most Hostess products (although, I get different opinions on that :P).

Basically, I look at the RT/CT debate as the same ol' Joel vs. Mike discussion, except not the respective hosts get to truly put their own spin on riffing. Sure, there's a difference, but either way it's funny to me. Well, at least I suspect CT would be funny top me since I haven't seen it yet.

As for ICWXP, it is more in the Rifftrax vein of humor, a more cynical, perhaps even caustic view, but since that's closer to my own sense of humor, I've always found Mike (and therefore ICWXP) funnier than Joel/CT. Going back to the music comparison, I like classical once in a while, but for some strange reason, I always seem to gravitate towards modern music . . . it's so much easier to mock, you know. That, and pretentious people piss me off.

I know CT only has one release at this point, so it's hard to take sides yet, but based on the information I have at this point, here's a prediction I'm going to make. Take it for what it's worth.

I personally liked the Joel era of MST3K better, but now I have to take sides with RiffTrax over CT.

Without turning this into a Joel vs. Mike debate, my preference probably heavily stems from the fact that I liked the movies they picked out for the Joel years (especially season 3) better than the ones that made the Mike years. I love goofy Japanese movies. Also, I felt the host segments were more well thought out during Joel's time (such as the Mighty Jack interrogation scene or the camera overlays bit).

*grits teeth*

Lets keep the inane lawsuit talk in the other thread.....   :P

I think it's cool how they're going to keep some kind of ongoing zombie plot in the series, with this new guest puppet, the "bum" they take in from off the streets, and the disembodied zombie head appearing in upcoming episodes.

They really did themselves a great service by placing their setting in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.  It's a goldmine for all types of special guests and sub-plots.  I'm really looking forward to this series.

By the way, yesterday I loaned my copy of episode 101 to a friend, who is a big MSTie & RiffTraxian.  Hope he likes it.

Hey now! I liked the Sci-Fi era plot arcs.  Especially when Mike destroyed the Earth.



I didn't see that one.

I am talking about the one where they went back to Roman times and stuff like that that was only there to take time away from movie riffing and fan letters.  Also I missed the invention exchange in the Sci-Fi years.

Some very funny stuff, guys. Makes me feel like its a new rediscovered version of the basic mst3k concept, and put on air. I would try sending this to networks and see if you could get picked up. That would be pretty sweet. But for now, I love the DVDs. Does any of you guys know how long it takes to script and shoot an episode?

Eh, I always found the "plot" skits way more interesting than the invention exchange, which were usually just bad puns.  I particularly liked Pearl babysitting the uber-powerful children, that was v. funny.

Well we both got a good few years of what we liked.

Also i liked DR.Forester more then Pearl Forester so there you go.

Also Pearl did get my favorite skit(the PBS one),so i guess it kind of evens out.

Gah!  I've been hanging out too much on the ICWXP forum, I'm way behind on here now.

I enjoyed the Sci-Fi era skits a little more because Bill Corbett was on the show, and while I loved Dr. F more than Pearl, I prefer Bill to Trace as Crow.

I think ICWXP is kind of like watching a movie riffed by three Crows, all the jokes have that "Bill Corbett edge to them", someone said and I agree.

There's some rumblings of Fangoria TV taking interest in the show I believe.

So while I think it'd be great for the guys behind ICW, I'm not sure I'd like it much.

Got my disc in the mail today. Very fast turnaround! I hope they can keep up with demand like this with future episodes. 

I haven't watched the ep yet (hopefully tonight).  But I have to say--very impressed with the packaging. Looks really professional.  I'm a little concerned about the lifespan of a burned disc, but what can you do at this stage...

But yeah, CT got their asses handed to them in terms of presentation.

You got a burned one?  Cuz I got a pressed one.

Post by: Fuzzy Necromancer on April 08, 2008, 07:51:24 PM
RiffTrax is like modern music. Everyone can get into it and it's fast and easy to get. It reflects the times in which it was released. A generation's struggles and joys are represented by each artist's own unique perspective and style. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but, instead, does whatever it can to cater to the fans.

Cinematic Titanic is like classical music. It's getting back to the basics and it doesn't deviate from that. Like a great, aged painting, it maintains the same feel over the years, bringing the audiences back to a more civilized time in humanity's past. It tends to take itself more seriously and, therefore, the fans tend to be a bit more presumptuous. They see it as the pinnacle of fine art, laced with subtleties that modern music is unable to provide.

Whatever side you take, you're not wrong.

Wow.

I fail to see much difference between the two, as far as sense of humor.  Even ICWXP is very much in the same vein as RT & CT.  In keeping with the music analogy, I would say that they all play rock music, they're just different bands.

Well, I think that conflicts within a group are often more heated and intense than conflicts outside the group. Just like there's way more fighting in ireland between catholics and protestants than between christians and bhuddists.

Ok, I finally got to this, and I am wicked impress. They had me at "there's a insert in the DVD case? holy shit!" and the whole package was solid. I laughed many times. The laugh track wasn't nearly as annoying in the later host segments as it was the first one, and entire concept is just wonderful. I highly anticipate future releases.

Carrie explained the delay over on the ICWXP board.  It's due to actors (ie: guests, not the main cast) not showing up for the filming of the host segments.  So, they've had to hire new actors and are currently filming the host segments.  But they say they still hope to get episode 2 out by the end of this month.

Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: Rude on April 17, 2008, 07:23:17 PM
...

I've always wondered why everyone rips off the silhouettes. I suppose it's easier to shoot in front of a screen and just chroma stuff in and out... it's a very forgiving special effect. I did motion graphics and SFX animation long enough that i respect simple and easy special effects. But i'm sure it wouldn't be that much more difficult to actually just place the characters in the shot.

But the dark movie theater has the right aesthetic, i suppose. No one would watch a movie, in a theater, with the lights on. And i guess it could be kinda' distracting as well. So, i really just answered my own question there... But still~ :P

Episode 1 is no longer going to be available in its "Limited First Run Edition", and we'll be later re-releasing it with some things changed, including the balcony instead of the old seats.

Would one of those changes include taking out the laugh track during the host segments? If so, I'll have to (gladly) buy that version as well.

Most certainly.

Episode 2 news:

Episode 2's DVD is going through it's final DVD encoding today!

We're going as fast as we possibly can and it should be out real soon!


Quote from: Carrie on 5/5
Hey guys!  I think Rikk put up the dough to get a really nice MPEG compressor program, so it's highly likley there's scene selection.  Let me make a call and I'll get back to you boys hopefully by tomorrow!

We're going to have these pressed and duplicated professionally so there's no risk of them not playing on older DVD players, and that'll be about a week, but we're in the home stretch.

We're also saving up to buy an iMac to do all our production on in the future to avoid the crazy long redner time our current PC takes.  Since we shot this episode all in HDV, it's taking a very long time to mix down.

Hey ICies!  I just wanted to drop in and give you the good news that encoding is all done and we're just waiting on packaging and a few other business related things to wrap up!  So the long "render nightmare" is at a close! 

Personally, the whole staff here is extremely happy to be out of the woods!  Sorry to keep you guys waiting so long!  I'll try to get a release date out of the guys ASAP.

Love ya!
Carrie

On the ICWXP forum, they posted that the DVDs will be "professional pressed" or can be available as a download.

This is pretty cool news.

I know they were having issues with the transfers and all their new fangled equipment...... maybe that is why?

Or, it could just be that Rifftrax is the coolest thing ever...... yeah, that is probably it!

I can't imagine why they would sell their DVD here first, unless it wasn't actually ready yet.

When you consider that the ICWXP guys have been trying to do the creation and distribution by themselves, and it has gotten MUCH bigger than they ever thought, having the marketing/distribution power of Legend Films and the easy to use download ability that Rifftrax has, this is a very smart business decision by all involved.

Heck, CT should do their distribution here too.

Haven't been on here in ages!  Good to see you all again!

The ICWXP guys have their studio in northern Missouri and their old PC (which had Episode 2 on it) really had a lot of technical and speed issues because they shot their host segments on high def, and they kept getting hit with power outages and a tornado came close to their studio.  Meaning, they would have to start whatever process to mix down the episode to DVD all over when the power would go, and it would takes days.  According to their MySpace girl, Carrie (love ya, Carrie!) they had everything done two whole months ago!  That really bums me out because I wanted to see them beat CT to their second release. 

I guess they've gotten a UPS and a Mac now so they won't have to deal with that crap anymore.  Carrie also informed me via e-mail their third episode will be out in a quarter of the time it took to get episode 2 out!  :)  The wonderfully talented Mr. Josh Way is helping them write riffage as well, so that'll help too I imagine.

I give them a break on the delay, their first effort was a "pilot" episode, and often when a new show debuts, it's months before we see the series kick off because they have to change many things.

Mega cheers to Rifftrax for noticing the awesome riffing talent of ICWXP.   :clap:

Yes and because CT has tons of backing, what with them paying for it all by themselves and doing everything also on a shoe string budget? Sorry but your explanation does not cut it. There is no need to create a fake rivalry between the two it is just stupid but I can't ignore comments like yours because for some reason it just drives me nuts.

*sigh*

REGARDLESS, no one can feasibly argue ICWXP is the underdog.  They don't have the avenues of promotion CT does, and even if money is coming right out of CT's guys pockets, the ICWXP guys don't have pockets like they do.  I'm not trying to spark a "fake" rivalry.  I wish them both the best.

Guess I wasn't the only one with the idea to wait up 'til midnight. Unfortunately, I couldn't 'cause I got NO sleep the night before and zonked at 10pm.
A thread on the ICWXP forum said it'd be released/announced at midday. Not sure if that's midday East Coast (where I am) or midday Pacific (where Rifftrax is).
Anyway, I shall be keeping my eye on the site and immediately dropping whatever I'm doing when it becomes available. :rimshot:

I think it has more to do with the Kansas-Missouri state line running through it than the river, but Kansas is on the west and Missouri is on the east side of the river.  Of Course the river is the state line boundary, but the river changes course sometimes.

MPG would be cool, but all rifftrax downloads are divx files, opened in divx player. It's always worked for me, so I don't mind. I got about three rifftrax movies and a couple of shorts downloaded, and I've never had a problem playing them in divx.

I would prefer an mpg, though.

What format are the iRiff videos?
For the introductory period of iRiffs, we are offering the standard mp4 as well as a DivX version of ICWXP's iRiff. However, going forward, anything uploaded to the site will be converted to an mpeg-4 AVI, which is compatible with a variety of software players and devices. If you have trouble viewing these files, consider downloading the ffdshow codec pack and / or the free VLC Player.


That's from the FAQ.  We are soon getting rid of Divx DRM on the feature VODs as well, because it caused much more grief than it was worth.  Please note that no iRiff content features DRM.

ICWXP on the front of rifftrax.com! Another ICie noticed this, and it's way cool.

Also, they got the "animated intro" available to watch for free. Didn't notice that before. Guess it'll give newbies a chance to see what's going on.

Woohoo! Does this mean that any previously-purchased VOD will become available via Rifftrax.com as a standard MPEG-4 download? Incidentally, any idea what MPEG-4 implementation you'll be using for the VODs and the iRiffs (as my handheld plays some but not others; I need to plan ahead)?

I don't think its going to happen. Since they were going to re-film it and now they lost a riffing member... I doubt they're going to go through all of the trouble to redo it completely. I'm just glad I nabbed a copy when they first started before it was discontinued. The skits on it may not be up to par at times... but their riff is my favorite out of all the movies they've done so far. Its a shame most people aren't able to see it. It surpasses the majority of rifftrax episodes in my opinion.

Why don't they just re-film all the scenes except the ones with the lost riffing member? If all else fails, they could always re-release the original version with a bonus half kidding "apology" as an introduction before the show starts. This is actually what was done when the pilot episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" (British version) was eventually shown on television. It just seems like a bad idea to have only three episodes made and pull the one that got people's attention in the first place.
Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: David on August 08, 2009, 07:14:12 AM
The only possible reason I can think to even redo it is because all the silhouettes were theater seats instead of the balcony.
But redoing it wouldn't need new audio at all.
Title: Re: ICWXP
Post by: Action Batch on August 08, 2009, 07:23:57 AM
Another option would be to chop the audio down and release just the movie (no silhouettes, no host segments) as a iRiff VOD just so it isn't completely lost.

Its kind of weird. They never said they abandoned it, but they quit saying its "coming soon". There was mention they were not completely happy with skits and wanted to re-film them and would react out the silhouettes. They weren't planning on redoing the riff portion of the movie from what I understand. And now that they are moving forward to new episodes it almost seems like this episode is becoming a distant memory.

I can understand their desire to make something completely new, but it seems like it would be less work to fix the first episode however they see fit and then upload it to the catalog page. It will show the origin of the characters and I'm sure fans will buy it because they want to buy something "new" to support them. Then they can use the funds to make the next episode even better. Too bad they haven't really been updating things much to let us know what's going on.
