Made a cinematic trailer for Ascent

Postby ForumBot » Tue Sep 10, 2019 4:51 am

UPDATE: Now live, watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbwJZqHLe-c

For those of you who haven't seen it, there's this trailer that was made for KSP back in 2013, and is widely credited with helping popularize it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkDOOsGg-9I

Basically, I'm planning on creating a similar trailer for Ascent using the same music and feel. I can't guarantee it'll do much or even anything at all to help popularize Ascent (it's essentially a gamble whether the video does well or not, though certain things can considerably improve the likelihood of success), though past cinematic videos I've made have garnered anywhere from 4k to over 80k views (among the current public videos as well as various ones that i've removed or unlisted) and around 200k in total, so it may not be a bad thing to try anyways, especially if I make it in a way that'll look appealing to people who've never played the game.

Currently Ascent has almost no presence on youtube, besides for Scott Manley's video and waervyn's tutorials, not to mention apparently Sinstrite took down all his old Ascent tutorials as well (though that might be a good thing, since they were very outdated).

The reason I'm creating this thread to ask you guys if there's any footage of things you want me to include. I already have a few good ideas of what to include but I'm open to any other suggestions. Anything that'll highlight the best of what Ascent has to offer, in particular.

A new video of Ascent would be great, all i have seen are now outdated.

I dont have much ideas of what to include, but showing what you enjoy in the game and why you like it should work well I think. Also making it more of a players perspective, instead of developers view would be nice. Maybe include how the community works, plays togethere and support eachother? Community is one of the best features in the game.

Good luck with your video, please share it here when its finished :)

There's one scene that I'll need two or more people to help with, if anyone's interested. Also if any has any good videos or screenshots of Ascent with multiple players present, I'll accept those as well

edit: nevermind
