W.A.Y. 2017: Make Comic Genesis Great Again

Postby LibertyCabbage on Sat Feb 18, 2017 1:35 pm

Let's do something fun and easy. My idea is to do video interviews with y'all.

Yes, video interviews. I know y'all are misanthropic shut-ins, but that's kind of the point. I want to make you uncomfortable. It's healthy.

And yes, I'll be posting these on YouTube, so everyone in the world will find out what you look like.

If you want to participate, reply here or send me a PM, and we'll figure out the rest.

Some Q&As...

Is this going to be incredibly fun?
Yes.

Is this going to instantly make me become Internet famous?
Yes.

Are you gonna be mean to me?
No. My questions will be about your webcomic/s and webcomics in general. I interviewed Cope a long time ago, and it'll be like that.

I don't like you because you made me upset that one time.
Get over it.

What software are you gonna use?
Probably Skype.

How long will the interview be?
I dunno, about 20 minutes?

Uh ... my webcam's broken, or something...
Fine. We'll just do audio then.

I'm a hideous monster who looks nasty and gross.
Wear a paper bag over your head.

I live in some crazy time zone where we don't even know what lemonade is.
We'll figure it out.

<some bullshit>
No.

Counter-Proposal.

Postby VileTerror on Sat Feb 18, 2017 7:27 pm

Colour me interested.
Granted, I understand if the deviation from regular webcomic conventions which I Blame Danny represents may make me personally ineligible for your criteria. I would still like to propose that you consider offering interviewees the option of non-live interviews. This understandably changes the potential results of the interview process, but would offer authors the opportunity to give particularly thoughtful and carefully weighted responses. For my own part, it would afford me the chance to fix my video "in post," but also give you the chance to splice the raw video to craft an engaging piece as you see fit.

What do you think?
Haughty spirit and pride make for a wild roller coaster ride!
I mean, as long as you like fairly final endings.

Jeez you're uptight. The point isn't to have a thoughtful discussion; the point is to make you uncomfortable. You seem like exactly the kind of person who needs to do a live interview.

You're pretty chill. Let me interview you instead. Everyone will want to do it when they see how much fun it is.

Ha, if you want to, sure, though I haven't authored a regular comic since 2006.

I'm sure I can come up with some random questions. I'll send you a PM.

Would certainly watch such a thing.

I'm naturally evasive and don't say much but I'd do this I guess.

I would double-kill to see a video interview with Yeahduff. And I would triple-kill if it were a joint interview with Yeahduff and ThePeppermintLetDown.

I'm half expecting this interview to go like this:

Pretty much the whole forum is like this, which is why the idea seems fun to me. It's something new.

I kind of want that toilet mug now. But no, the questions are normal questions. The part that's supposed to be uncomfortable is just that you're showing your face on the Internet and giving real-time answers. It's an exercise in self-awareness.

I screwed up the recording, so it only has my audio. Also, I'm sick, so my voice is kinda crappy.

I messed up my video again, and there's an echo with Yeahduff's voice since I didn't use headphones, but I'll try to get it right next time. Anyways, who's next? VileTerror? Anyone?

C'mon people. You can do it. And this video's proof that ain't skeered to show my face:
