2. Some hard nugget is going to feel empowered that something shockingly shit or with no relevance has to be put into the collection (if anybody has seen Parks and Recreation with the time capsule, a bit like that).
Pfft. A good 35% of the 1st collection is already "shit"--one-off montages from people no one's ever heard of, unnamed capture card quality tests, "gameplay footage" that lasts only 16 seconds with nobody doing anything--some of the videos in there aren't even from Halo.
We're not filtering content based on how many cocks the uploader sucked, how much MLG is in it, or which Halo game you want to see. It's a celebration of Halo creativity, in all its forms. Be it a high production fragvid, a Windows Movie Maker 1st tage' a machinima with less than 300 episodes(Congrats, RT!) or even that hilarious commercial you guys forgot in 2005.
Simple as this--we hold an open arms submission period. All halo videos, regardless of content, can be submitted by creators or friends. Let's face it--the old stars of H2F and H3F are dead now--they won't be able to send theirs in. Those who have downloaded their videos can submit on their behalf.
The most recent Halo videos admitted into the THF Ultimate Halo Fragvid Collection were all from the Reach Beta. That's 2010. So we draw the line at 2015, and all videos made between 2010(Reach Beta/Retail) to 2015(MCC/Halo 5) will be eligible. We can upload lost relics of the ancients, but we can also focus more on the newer generations.
We need more machinimas, more music videos, and even Campaign might not be a bad idea. If the video size is too big, just put it through Handbrake.
I'd like to reiterate that I am more than willing to head up production of the second collection. I've got several terabytes of hard drive space, and my internet connection is solid and reliable. Not to mention, I'm fantastic with organizing and keeping records.
This can be done,and it can be done easily. We just need the initiative.
