Motion tracking is fun.

Damn, this one is awesome. I love how Jer's first response to being attacked is to Tweet that he's being attacked by one of the Village people.

Wow, that was really funny. As useless as Twitter is, at least we got a great video from it.

Also, did you have to get permission to film on the bus?

This week's film inspired by Matt?

Also, I actually laughed at "I AM A BIG POOP" that's why my friends don't leave their phones unattended by me anymore.

Different.

It'd be funnier if it wasn't so... appropros. Most of it was pretty much spot on for average tweet garbage, but the tweeting while being beat up was absurd enough to get a few chuckles. Still, it's too close to the truth to be more than humorous with an overarching tinge of sad.

Addendum: And yes, I noticed Lying's role. Noice. Can't wait to get my ass up there sometime with a trebuchet.

No credit for Lying. I think someone else got left out, but I forget who.

Also, quite hilarious. Will people get the crabcore thing?

I don't about the video overall, that will require some thought. VERY nice motion-tracking though.

I loved the Jer/Tally passive aggressive relationship and Tim's bassmanship, not so fond of the fight sequence. The faked punches really stand out because the rest of the video is so slick. At least it ended on a high note, the nurse glove stinger was perfect.

This is my first time seeing Morgan in a while. Holy crap.

Definitely some nice writing on this one. (Probably helps that I'm against Twitter, though I know that's not the intention.)

That line alone makes this video.

Also, Tally using Rosco as a teddy bear was a nice (and adorable) touch.

Reminiscent of Lore Sjoberg's latest article. The highlight of which is

I'm not a Twitter user, so the video didn't really click with me, but I did greatly admire the motion tracking. How did you do it? Is it just lots of manual keyframing, or is there something in Final Cut that helps out?

Ever since I moved desks, I can't watch stuff with the sound on (will have to do some fancy dancing come Desert Bus time), and I have to say that this is one of the few videos I've seen of yours that I think works well with no sound at all. It's this and the "X Ways to Y" series that do that, and I almost feel as if you wrote it like this just for folks like me.

Also, as a prolific Tweeter, I LOL'd and then need to Tweet about this.

Um, which one was Lying again?

I'm not sure who I like more in this vid, Jer or James. Though perhaps the concert dude could have been someone else (Bruze, maybe?) so that we could get James' awesomeness as the male nurse at the end all by itself.
