You’ve created stuff in a video editor and you feel pretty proud of yourself. Well, if you feel too confident about your ability to create a decent video production, I have the perfect remedy for you: It’s The Escapist’s Doomsday Arcade. It’s a hilarious web series where two gamers must flee from video game characters who have crossed over into their world. While worth it just for the jokes and references, the real reason I’m recommending that you watch this series is to see the crazy and amazingly well pulled off production and special effects. The series is able to create a great atmosphere and convincingly real unrealistic situations. It is, at times, to the detriment of the story but you will realize after watching this that you aren’t any good at making video.
For animation fans out there, check out The Escapist’s Unforgotten Realms about two friends playing a Dungeons-and-Dragons-esque game. I don’t care for Dungeons and Dragons at all but the series is funny enough otherwise for me to view every new video. It might not be, pardon the pun, the flashiest of animated series but it is decently impressive when you factor in that it is pretty much the work of one person, Robert Moran. Just another reason to go find a few tutorials online to get better at what you thought you were good at.
