UPDATE 20.03. HUGE SUCCESS!
The video is done! With incredible dedication, we are finishing this project within the set deadline right before the CL birthday. I thank everyone who participated in editing, singing or even just supporting this project from afar. And so I present to you the CL "Still Alive" chorus:
Credits are in the description and in the third post of this thread.
As you may remember, we had a discussion about making original lyrics. @TeruShinozaki even provided us with her very own and very well made version of the lyrics. Now, we decided against it in favor of more easy and known version. Still, we - the editors of the project - did a bit of singing, so yes, this is us performing the more CL-related version of the song for your listening pleasure.
I want to thank, once again, everyone who participated. Singers who managed to give us their recordings. I never expect that we would have so many people wanting to sing. And I really want to thank @Ecstasy and @Rinneko for answering my call and helping me with this. They now know what kind of control freak I am ))
Well, I am quite pleased with how this turned out. And I hope you are too.
Hello, one and all!
In some recent chorus discussions it became obvious that we need more good English choruses. Now, I am usually not the one to start projects, however, @DarkChaplain mentioned an idea about making a chorus about CL. And not only it was a good idea, but I also support this fully and think it should be done in a special way. To show that CL is in fact Still Alive. And yes, I want to do the Portal song Still Alive.
My thought is to make it a sort of CL birthday chorus, but since I am new at making projects myself, and my editors are not the usual project cast, I decided to start this a bit early just it case of some complications. Better to finish this before CL b-day (which is March 21th btw, so we have a lot of time) than after it, in my opinion.
Also, at first I wanted to make it a double feature - doing both Still Alive and Wish you were Gone from Portal 2, but I had no good CL-related ideas for the second one, so we will be focusing on a single song. This will make the work easier for production cast and also this would allow the singers to do their best without switching to different rhythms, tunes or anything.
So, let's do our best!
Right now we need singers, and everyone is welcome to join! I am not planning on doing auditions for this project. Well, maybe I will ask you to re-make some part of your recording... or maybe not, I am not sure about that myself yet, really. But anyways, no auditions, everyone is welcome. This is a project for CL after all.
Also, since I am planning on something that wasn't done here before, I have some ideas regarding the singers participation, so be prepared that I may ask you to do something in addition to making recordings. It won't be anything hard, won't take up more than 5 minutes of your time, really... or it may not happen at all - depending on me discussing that with my editors.
That's it for now. First three posts will be updated along with the status of the project.
UPDATE 06.02. DEADLINE!!!
We are on! We will be singing original portal song, and the deadline for sending your songs is February 24th, Monday. In addition to your singing we would need some screenshots from you with song's lyrics. All tips and instructions can be found in the second post of this thread (right below this one, you know).
Send links to your recordings and screens me, Ecstasy or Rinneko by PM, or you can just post them in this thread is you want. If you are unable to upload files anywhere for some reason - you can also send them to this e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also invite artists to make CL birthday drawings to add to a video! Yes, with this being all about CL, we decided - why not add some more possibilities for participation? So, art related to CL (I don't know, some users pictures, Server-tan with cakes, whatever comes to your mind) can be added to video too. Artists wishing to put their CL b-day drawings in the video also should send us links or post the pictures in the thread. Deciding to participate as an artist does not require you to sing, don't worry ))
UPDATE 25.02. WORK IN PROGRESS
First of all, thank you to all who sent their recordings. While we didn't receive any art (shame on you, people!), we have 15 singers, which is quite a lot. About twice of what I personally expected. Considering the number of people, mixing may take some time, but I am pretty sure we will be able to make our own deadline of March 21th.
Hope to give more updates soon.
