Civilizations Trailer

A Dig Deep Experience: Civilizations Trailer


I decided to make a short trailer of my dig deep map Civilizations. The video isn't really intended to promote the map, but rather a fun video montage of several builds on the map.
I love the Stargate Atlantis theme song, so I chose it for the trailer.
Also a huge shoutout to Quadraphinic for helping with the moving character into the Stargate. We both thought it would be cool to have a robotic moving into the Stargate to explore.

Note that this is not all of the builds on the map!!!!! There are plenty more that had to be omitted, but I tried to add as many as I could.




I'm kind of disappointed the quality only came out to 720p, so it may look a bit grainy. I'm not sure what went wrong, but I'm scared to think the video footage was shot in that setting, which then I would have to remake the trailer to get 1080p :P


If you would like to see the builds in depth and explanations on how I built them, visit the "Your World" thread of Civilizations here: Civilizations
You make me smile!

The music really fit the video. Nice choice.

When I first started thinking about how I wanted the trailer to sound/look like, I picked the Stargate Atlantis theme because the horn effects in the song made it very melodic to piece my establishing shots around (sorry Im not a musician, correct me if I'm using incorrect terminology).

Also when I was designing it in my head, I liked the idea of the camera panning up to look at the underside of the dome in the Vatican at 0:28. That and I wanted to have a little snippit of someone walking through the Stargate in the SGC to seem like they were exploring other worlds.

So with those two shots, I pieced everything else around it. I made sure to fit the establishing shots with the rise and falling of the music.
You make me smile!

It kind of made me wish we had that song in total miner. I could see tons of uses for adventure maps and such. The song could be used in so many different circumstances.
