Myself and some friends have been playing through the campaign for Doom and the expansion pack. In a display of utter geekitude we've started doing some time-lapse videos of the sessions (realtime seemed a little harsh...a map tends to last 3-5 hours with 3 marines).

These may give players an idea of how the game pans out, so we've slapped them up on YouTube for public delictation.

Good Job! Very slick. I think the eye-level shots were more interesting to watch than the overhead ones. More detail could be seen.

Here is a thought for your next recording: Place the camera on the table and get a Marines-eye view of the game.

I give this a thumbs up!

Thanks for the feedback! We were actually thinking that ourselves.

The plan for the next session will be to have a camera placed near each area as its revealed to give a close-up shot of it. We have 4 webcams in total, so I'm sure we can spare one

The overhead cam gives a good idea of how the game is progressing, and the nature of the game, with the areas being revealed and built one by one, makes it more useful. Games like Zombies! or Carcassonne would probably suit that angle too...

I really need to get something better at making the videos though...Windows Movie Maker reduced the quality massively before I even uploaded it

Cheers for all the feedback and PM's (and 2 gold tips! I'm rich!).

We've taken the comments into account (apart from the one about music...sorry, I don't have any Enya in my collection for you laugh ) and at the last session (on Saturday) did a couple more videos of the game.

Made more use of low shots, and set the cameras up better for cleaner shots on this one...I'm pretty happy with how it came out

Overhead cam only, so you can see the marines missed a couple of areas out, and the general progression of the map.

We have 3 more maps to go in the expansion, and we'll undoubtedly be doing time lapses of those too...I'll be sure to post them up here, bad music and all

Great stuff!! Have you got any more to put up?

Ignore the nay-sayers, the music choice is fine Put something by Sum 41 on the next one, for that tongue-stapled-in-cheek factor
