Appear in ENN! Submit me your things! Please!

Postby Graham » 30 Sep 2009, 22:10

Hey all everypeoples. I could really use your help with an upcoming episode of ENN.

We're doing a bit about how people look silly using the Wii, and we need as many photos of people in goofy poses using wii-motes as we can. Even video if you can.

Part of the joke though, is that the Wii itself is taking these pictures.

So:
- Put your camera down where your Wii would be, and snap a shot with Wii-mote (and chuk if you like) going nutbar.
- If it's video, make it steady, don't hand-hold it.
- Send it to me: [email protected] with the subject heading "Wii Pix" and you'll get into a future episode of ENN, and also help us out.
- Deadline: Next Thursday.



It Must Be Said:
We're doing this for ENN, which The Escapist needs us to clear rights for, so: By submitting any pictures to us, you also give us right to use that picture in an episode of The Escapist News Network. We've got to say this, just to be safe.
We won't take it personally if you're not cool with it. But it's just a picture.

Dude, you're going a little hard on that sarcasm thing.

Dial it back a bit.

You won't need a wide angle lens if you would just hold the camera more than a cm away from your crotch man.

It's ingenuity man!

I'd rather no photoshop.

We also may or may not use anything we get sent, dependant on whether or not it works.
Remember, it's a parody news show.

Also, DEADLINE: Next Thursday.

That's great, but if it sticks out as being ridiculous then we won't use it.
We're going for dry, serious delivery with these stories, right?

I wouldn't say it's ridiculous, just staged with the help of photoshop. I'll post it here when I make it.

Don't post it here. I would rather just see what they use and have it new to us. Post it after the show airs if they don't use it but don't post it early please!

Not sure if using the Wiiote to remove ear wax would be nice thing for me to take a picture of.

Kinda but not really.

I want to do this, but I don't know if asking a friend to borrow his Wiimote and chuk for a while is creepy sounding or not.

Vigafre, do it at the friends house, then you don't have to borrow anything.

I wonder if my dad's fiancee will let me use her digital SLR camera?

Because I might be able to pull something off.

I'll probably take a lot of pictures in various positions, if I can.
I can put my hands in my head, and I can laugh it in the face.

Guys, you don't even need a Wii, just a Wiimote, or a reasonable facsimile. Hell, some game stores sell Wiimote candy tins.

TO CLARIFY:

You don't need a wii, just a wii-mote, or as tak197 said, one of those tins of gum that looks like one. I've got one here, it'll work.

And the idea is not just to do dumb stuff with them but to look like you're actually playing the Wii, only caught at a particularly goofy moment.

Graham, do you have a preference on the file type?
