'11 Days In Bridgeport', an open movie project FINISHED

I bring you Bridgeport, in a way you probably haven't seen it before, just because we don't have speed 6 in The Sims 3 (yet).
Please let me know what you think about it. If you love it, if you hate it, I really want to know, just because I can learn from you, no matter who you are. :)
11 Days in Bridgeport, made in just 5.

Yeah, me to. I am dying to see what you all people think about it. I've tried to do something that nobody ever before had done in a Sims game. At least, not that I could find on Youtube.

Dispite my awful, slow internet, I manged to see at least half of your beautiful video, Leto.

I think it's faster.  He mentioned speed 6 in the first post.  He's got some movie making tricks up his sleeve.

Very impressive.  You did a wonderful job and Bridgeport looks so pretty.  EA should employ you to advertise their games.

All the way through, I loved the music and wondered what it was.  How awesome that it's the Sims 3 theme music slowed down!

Exactly guys. It is indeed The Sims 3 Main Music and I have choosen it because in slow down it is still recognziable, even when you can't place it in the first place. In normal speed The Sims 3 Main Music has been desined to make people happy and enthousiast to buy or play the game right away. And I think they succeeded.
I found out that in slow motion this music will turn out to be an ambient style and that really surprised me. First I was shocked about how beautifull it was in a total non expected way. I just closed my eyes and immediatly saw this movie playing in front of me. Since then, I couldn't sleep anymore untill it was finally finished.
It was a real pain to make actually, not because it would be difficult but because my editing sofware didn't work with me and I had to strugle myself in ways I haven't been through before and in my direct environment there is no-one who could help me with this.
I'm glad if you all liked it, because that was exactly what I was hoping for.

Beautifully done, Leto. It really makes Bridgeport come to life. You're right, I've never seen anything quite like it. I'll link this one on the guide for all the visitors to see :)

I feel stupid for not "getting" it. There's clearly some philosophy behind it, but the "time goes by very fast", "life gets wasted in big cities", "living for work and working for life", and "evil corporations will take over the world" thoughts seemed too obvious.

If Pam hadn't said it, I wouldn't know this was The Sims's theme song. It actually got me thinking that maybe they recorded it slowly, perhaps in the same speed as the video, and then made it faster to create that jolly one we know. Is this why so many people fail when trying to replicate the music with their instruments, or are they just bad anyway and I'm being crazy?

I feel stupid for not "getting" it.

The biggest problem with films like that is when you make one with the "art" of it as your first priority, it's not going to be any good.  You can't forget what the real purpose of a film or video is:  to entertain.  People are going to take what they want out of it, anyways, so really there isn't much of a reason to try and instill a point for people to get.  This is the whole reason indie films will never become popular, except with their cult following.

So, personally, I didn't waste a lot of time trying to "get" it.  I enjoyed it for what I saw it to be:  a finely crafted film with some rather delightful visuals of a nice looking city in the game I love.  The soundtrack fit perfectly, and you're right about the ambiance of it...and I was incredibly surprised to discover that it was the Sims theme music.  I didn't even recognize it.

I have to go back and watch it again, now.  :P

Edit:  I had trouble recognizing until the very end lol.

One more reason for me more to watch some Indian movies. Can you pm me some links to good ones? I hope I can get them in my country, but at least I could try.

@ Carl, I will be very proud if you would link it. I'm looking forward to see how you would do that.

You did a fantastic job, Leto! The city really has a lot of character when you see it like this. I didn't recognize the music until near the middle of the video. It has a great, urban feel to it when it's slowed down.

P.S- Indie means independent, not Indian. :)

Leto, I really enjoyed watching this video.  I love playing in Bridgeport but after watching your video I am seeing the town in a whole new light.  Now I can enjoy it even more. 
I didn't recognize the music either but enjoyed this slower version more than I did the original. 
I can't wait to see more of your movie making talents ;D.

I enjoyed watching.  It was a great match of image to music (and no, I wouldn't have known what the music was either).

Liked how you captured the stars cartwheeling through the sky.  The play of the dirty city atmosphere, slightly smoggy with the cloud cover that could do with a good old wash but most especially loved how you captured the sheer beauty of the bridge and it's gorgeous colours.

Not sure about the bar scene - did I miss something there?  I thought the old women seemed like clones but it could be that they had similar hairstyles.  That bit left me wanting more, maybe more images of sims, speeded up in different locations, though that probably would have detracted from the city.

You did a good job. Your editing skills are impressive.  I'd quite like to see how you tour the other places too - especially Barnacle Bay as I don't have that location.  Thanks for sharing.

That would be Hyacinth and Violet Atkins.  They are townies who live in Bridgeport.  They are at least sisters, maybe twins.  They look and dress alike except for the slight difference in color.

Thanks Pam.  My eyes weren't deceiving me (though now I'm tempted to go back and watch again but pause on those parts to get a good look at the sisters.)  I can see that I need to play Bridgeport a bit more to properly meet the locals.  I've been there (love that bridge) but had a few problems with stuttering in game (or pausing or whatever it is called) so haven't really explored much.  Leto's movie was so smooth, no stuttering.  It makes Bridgeport look very enticing.  I'm tempted to go back.

I'm playing in Bridgeport right now for the Master Mixologist LTW.  It's very different from Sunset Valley, but it's fun.

Oh wow, Leto, that was one of my favourite Sims videos ever! To quote everyone else, it really did bring the city of Bridgeport
to life. An amazing look at a Sims town, and your video-ing and editing skills are excellent, unsurpassed!  :D :D

Keep it coming. You have officially convinced me to watch ALL of your Sims videos!  ;)
