Hey guys, after getting feedback from the community from our latest reg trailer the deathtrooper trailer. I would like to know your opinions about theses 3 option. 

 

I will provide you guys with a quick summary of what theses will be about.

The Regimental Trailers

This one is pretty straight forward, we just make Trailers for the Regiments. 

 

Regimental Short Stories

This will be more based on short stories about each regiment, providing a more creative and more production valve towards our videos. Each Video will be detailed individual stories for each regiment which will be in a series which will be lead up to a goal that each story had a part to take in.

 

A Storyline Series

This will be a series that will be following the main protagonist with a 6 episode series.  This series will be focusing on a major issue that the empire will try and resolve. 

 

Hopefully from the feedback from this, we will be able to create much better content for you guys to enjoy!

I would love to do regimental trailers and stories. You get a snapshot and a short series of episodes that would lead up to some finale type thing. I'd be happy to help.

Scripts, participating as villians, etc.

Reg trailers would be good but they do get boring after awhile.

Reg stories would be fun and include all the regs. Like all regs doing something towards one goal. Sounds interesting.

Story Series would be like a series based around characters in the Empire doing stuff to stay alive etc.

Most wound pretty interesting and they're all advertising in a way. Can't wait to see the picks!

I'd prefer to deviate away from the "Trailer's" as, in shown in the Shore Trooper Trailer it was just coordinated actions of shore troopers with pop music playing over the top. Definitely a step up with the DT trailer actually trying to paint the imperials in a light more befitting then coordinated actions with pop music. 

Story is what drives a film, or at least the ability to do certain aspects of the film in extraordinary ways. The adding of a song does not control the entirety of the film, yet. It does so sadly in two examples. Yes music can contribute to Scenes in a way with gives it more punch or kick, but not entire sequences where the only thing your showing is bland combat with too many drawn out shots.

I'm all for the focus on story with regiments, and adding different variants that will make things interesting and enjoyable to watch.

I'm definitely against the "Trailers" As they show no real effort of explaining the regiments purpose or involving the viewer in the experience. More of eluding them away from the screen.

 

Cast's Critique over, sorry for the uncertainty when it comes to my posts (most are a joke, some are serious). But I feel very strong about this and the misinterpretation of the two trailers before.

Regiments being advertised in short stories but marketed as trailers would be a great idea. A story to follow (like the mission the Death Troopers go on in their trailer) is far more engaging as well as being more realistic and like @cast said above, is not just some shooting over some music which is generic and boring.

I do believe however that typical trailers can be made to advertise grouped regiments or organisation within the server, such as 501st Legion, Imperial Security Bureau, Imperial Navy and Military High Command, or overviews of attack regiments, defence regiments and specialist regiments in separate videos to showcase specifically what classes and roles one can take playing with Imperial Gaming.

It would be great for a storyline series can run alongside trailers/stories, I hope this is not a vote to focus on one thing specifically.

Excited to see where this leads us.

@cast Very well said, l couldn't agree more with the whole Trailer thing. They're more like scenes that just play over music, which is something we're avoiding since the Shock Trooper Trailer. If the Regimental Trailers do become the top vote(unlikely) They will become more imformative and more showing off what the group has and what their  purpose  is on the server.
