Let's make a GOOD new Ghostbusters!

Okay, so the new Ghostbusters movie looks like a big bag of shit. Despite claims to the contrary by psychopathic children, it's NOT because of sexism. So, I thought I would come up with a better one. Let's do it.

First of all, we're counting the incredible 2009 video game as the third Ghostbusters movie, it's canon and the events of this new movie follow the events of the game. The Ghostbusters is now a nation-wide franchise. The old Ghostbusters have retired except for Winston who's now the president of Ghostbusters Inc.

The movie picks up in New York, where a new team of Ghostbusters have taken over the original fire station used in the previous movies. Here's my personal pick for the new cast...

Maria Bamford

Maria Bamford would play a slightly unstable psychic who can communicate with the dead but sometimes gets lost in it and briefly taken over by the spirit she's communicating with.

Adam Savage

Adam Savage plays the tinkerer, inventor, almost to obsession. A lot like his real life persona.
Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx is the scientist who often has to dumb down his explanations for the rest of the team.
Tig Notaro

Tig Notaro plays an enthusiastic new recruit who often gets asked to test new gadgets, sometimes to hilarious effect.

The plot would center around a villain who has studied necromancy and is opening portals to various realms inhabited by evil spirits in an attempt to become a god. The villain summons various ghosts, including past Ghostbusters villains, to thwart their attempts to stop him.

There's a scene in which the resurrected Marshmallow Man destroys the US Senate, causing a nearby crowd, previously terrified, to cheer and applaud before turning back to terror. Another scene in which the military allows the Ghostbusters to retrofit one or more tanks with their gear to fight the larger summoned creatures.

The final scene would involve a very large monstrosity, a twisted combination of many ghosts and monsters, being battled by HUNDREDS of Ghostbusters from various different franchise locations.

That's a very rushed version of the movie I might make. Thoughts? Leave a comment below.

News Bit - Behind The Scenes

So I've been doing these silly little videos called News Bit lately. I used to just write up little fake news posts and put them here on this blog, but no one reads this blog so I thought I should try YouTube. I did a couple where I just read the fake news headlines in front of this web cam but it didn't quite look right. I thought about doing a green screen set up but after asking a friend of mine about a program called Facerig I decided to go with that instead. Have a look at the newest News Bit and then I'll go into some more details about what I used to make it.

If you liked that, please share the video anywhere and everywhere you think there might be people who would like it. Twitter, Facebook, etc, etc. Also, please check out the charity link I put below the video. It's a good cause.

Here's what I use for my videos...

  • Audacity This is a free program that I recently started using for recording and editing the voice track for my videos. This allows me to do things like bass/treble enhancement and noise removal.
  • Facerig A program that allows you go map your face and head movements to a 3D (or even 2D) avatar. This is what I used for the "news man" and the desk.
  • Handbrake While Facerig outputs .webm files by default, Adobe Premiere won't take them, at least the version I have doesn't. I use this, which is both fast and free, to turn them into .mp4 files.
  • Video Blocks This is where I got the looping news studio background. This is an amazing place to get backgrounds, footage and more. Once purchased they can be used in any manner you see fit, including commercial use.
  • Gimp for Windows This is my image editor of choice. It's free and multiplatform.
  • Adobe Premiere While I use Adobe Premiere Portable 2015 as my preferred video editor, I plan on upgrading when I have the money.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Check out my YouTube Channel for more videos like this, most of them much lower effort!
