Hello everyone. (this is going to be long, buckle up)
I have a new idea for an intro, but I want to see what the majority of people think about it before I submit it upstairs- mostly because the people who will create the intro(s) are the people watching the podcast.
Here is a very rough example of what I am proposing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJqx8BN3sEQ
The intro will basically be a photo you submit that will have your forum/real name and the words "Podcast Questions" on it somewhere. It will be displayed with some music 5 or 6 seconds before the podcast questions segment.
*Edit: It could also be your sig and/or avatar if it meets the dimensions and specs. Which would be sweet to see, because the sigs/avatars are amazing.
(It is alot like the "bumps" on adult swim. I think that idea is genius, because it provides quick entertainment in between episodes of entertainment.)
Here is the idea: for the intro for the podcast questions (which is geared toward the fans) the same people submit a clever photo of themselves or something game/comic/site related. The image would be more entertaining if it had some humor or interest instilled into it. Which can be done typographically. It can be just a normal photo but with the right words can be a hilarious statement/image. By doing this I think it could give a better flow to the podcast's segments.
It would be another avenue for 'we' the fans to contribute and create a more interlaced community. Also it gives people a chance to flex their creative muscles. It could also be submitted by the crew of the Game heroes. Seeing a hilarious photo of mickey in a leprechaun get-up with a hilarious caption before the podcast questions would set a good tone.
The submissions would have to adhere to certain guidelines for submission. the image would be a specific size (resolution and file size) it had to be clean (content wise), liberally related to the site's material (in some way), and somewhat creative/interesting to look at for five seconds. The editor at the GH should be able to just throw it in the podcast without having to tinker with it (they bust their ass enough as it is).
no joke, if this idea is blatantly retarded, say so.
or if its great and you would be interested in seeing it, then say so
