Topic: If This Tape Is Ever Found/Home Video

For this one, I was thinking one person would be making this...it's a person's last desperate cry for help, like "If this tape is ever found....etc" Filmed in nightvision or on a webcam or something, a person describes their state and expresses their desperation for help.

Augh, I forgot to make this a poll.

Re: If This Tape Is Ever Found/Home Video

I like this.  But I think it should be short.  1-2 minutes tops.

Sounds like it's got some potential, I worry it's too specific though, since every video will probably be someone panicking and yelling a lot.

won't it all look like the Blair Witch Project?

Re: If This Tape Is Ever Found/Home Video

Well, thinking outside of the box, there are many different approaches one could go with for this.

IE.  "If anyone be finding this video, ye be after me buried treasure."  Pretty extreme and open for humour, but very doable and out of the norm.

Box-thinkers beware, this may not be a fight for you.  smile

Good, i live outside the box, miles and miles away from it. This seems like a cool idea, I might not go so far as pirates, unless of course they were cyborg pirate ghosts. But this seems like an awesome fight idea, ideas be a-brewin' in me head. I'm thinking murder.

Re: If This Tape Is Ever Found/Home Video

I like this one.  I have a real one of these made. 


On a side note, I've been thinking... since I move around a lot, I was going to make a DVD showing basically who I was and what I had done with the place I lived.  How it was set up, what kinda stuff I had and then I'd leave the DVD in the attic or taped under a drawer with the "Put me back after you watch me." kind of instructions.  It may take years for someone to find it and when they do, they get a little glimpse of the past.

Could be fun.  I'd be wicked stoked if I found something like that.

Re: If This Tape Is Ever Found/Home Video

I like this idea.

But to avoid the Blair witch panic stuff I would just leave it open and the time limit to two minutes.  Just a "If this tape is ever found" thing.  So it could run a whole gambit... someone preparing a backup tape in case somethiogn ahpoens to them, or a personal prediction, or a will in a desperate situation... or a last message to someone else meant for hope rather than panic, etc.

Anyone who goes for the desperate panic will be flogged by the critics so i would hope people would use their imaginations.


I would approach it personally with a "if anyone ever views this tape, i'll be in a whole lotta shit" approach.  Maybe disclose some personal secrets that you plan on erasing later.

Or maybe, if anyone ever views this tape, my paprachuting attempt didn't work," and maybe its not a plea but some last words left in case something bad could happen, but necessarily.

maybe they prepared the tape thinking the worst, and it didn't happen and then someone discovers the tape when it wasn't necessary and it effects the person.  Not necassirly is the movie the actual tape, but the story surrounding the tape.  there's a whole gambit you could go with this other than the last words panic thing.


I believe Stephen king used this concept for a short story, as well as some other writers.  Its a great idea for a filmfight.

i like the idea alot.

It's better to try and screw it up then never try at all.

I'm not a film fighter, I'm a film lover.
