Speechless: Teens Create Promo Video for Curse of the Spider King

Why title this post "Speechless"? Easy. That's what I was when I watched this video. You need to understand that ALL of this is totally original material. These brilliant kids wrote the script, filmed, acted, edited, created the special effects, and applied them postfilming, and wrote and performed the original soundtrack.



I don't know about you, but I nearly jumped out of my chair when I saw that giant Warspider on the kid's roof. Please post a comment and let these prodigies know what you think of their 100+ hours of effort.

Post Script: It seems that this blogger format won't show the full screen version of the video and like a third of the right part of the screen didn't show up. Here's the link so you can see it full screen:


Post Script 2: My 12 year old son watched the video and just about flipped off of our bed!

Whoa...this video is freakin' awesome. You guys did a spectacular job. *grumbles at Nightwing* Even though it is AWESOME. I can't believe all that stuff is original!

I have arachnophobia, so that warspider on the roof ... I don't have words for it. Even that spider spy was bad enough for me. That movie was amazing!

Post Script: I saw the whole movie on the blog, but it overlapped the CotSK banner on the right.

Holy macaroni and cheese!!! AMAZING job, you guys. I am just bamboozled. You will, for sure, win the x-tra 1000 points. But you should get more! *covers mouth in fear... 'betrayed my tribe' races through The Allebian Knight's mind*

that's my brother! I'm so proud of all the hard work he's done on this, can't wait to check out more!

Peter Stone said...

Hi Wayne,
That's absolutely fantastic news.

Also, with Youtube, when you click on a videos 'Embed' command, it opens a box of options. One option is 480x295. You click on that option, and then copy the 'Embed' HTML text. That way, the video should fit in your blog.

TOTALLY COOL GUYS!!!!!!!!!! I am so proud of leighton and the guys! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU DID NIGHTWING PROUD!!!!!!!!!

Son of the King said...

Wow....too cool. That is great graphics for that type of vid.

MichaelBashaw said...

Amazing! While the original video/audio footage was just average, the effects, transitions, music and timing more then made up for that. The spider blew me away. The score was also so professional that I did not realize it was original music until after I viewed the video. I am very interested in finding out what programs were used in the creation of the promo. You guys will definitely go a long way if that is what you choose to do.

WOW. that was awesome. especially the score and the giant spider. a lot of the characters looked pretty much the way i imagined them too.
awesome job!
