SciPhi Riff's #1
« on: August 31, 2008, 03:10:54 PM »
Well I had a go at making my first riff on a public domain short. I'm not sure how funny it is  :-\ but it was in part a technical exercise in making sure everything works. Anyway, feedback is welcome and I hope it is funnier than I think.

How do I link the video directly ?

How do I link the video directly ?

use the embed code:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Then remove everything but the web address

http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&hl=en&fs=1

And place it between the flash code (the button on the far left in the second row of code buttons)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

Then change the dimensions to something like 400,400

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/rp1-yJDjNZs&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

So, change the name on the index to SciPhi Riff's? :)

Didn't there used to be a "YT" tag we could use specifically to embed YouTube videos quickly? It doesn't seem to work anymore...

Yep it was lost the last time there was a systems glitch (possibly connected to the general forum overhaul that preceded it).

It'll probably come back at some point but in the mean time the method describe above is really pretty easy and not noticeably more difficult or time consuming, once one gets the hang of it. :)

I watched it.  The jokes were fine, but it was too sparse.  Not sure if that was the best movie to do.

The jokes that were there were funny, but like BTA said they were too few and far between.  You don't want them overlapping or covering up dialog, but if they're too sparse you lose the rhythm of it.  A good start though.

No worries, thanks for the feedback. That is pretty consistent with what everyone else said. Funny, but need more jokes.

Which is pretty much what I was thinking. So it is good to know that my feelings on it seem to have been accurate.

I should come up with something better soon :) There are lots of those education films to do :)
