CALLING ALL NERDS! (NF Video Montage Project)


Recommended Posts

Okay nerds, I have a project I've been thinking about starting for a while, and I want your help.  I want to create a Nerd Fitness forum member motivational montage.  Everyone that wants to participate will be included.  It's pretty simple, everyone contribute a video clip of yourself doing something you love for fitness, be it lifting, running, climbing, flipping, or eating a salad.  Be creative!  Clips should be relatively short so that if tons of people participate I can squeeze them all in.  If there is enough footage, I will make multiple videos.

 

If we get enough involvement this will be a fun way to motivate each other and we'll have something great to show off to people when we're talking about the forum.  "Yeah, those guys are great!  Check this out." 

 

Along with your footage, comment on here letting us know that you've made a contribution, and throw up the name of a song you find inspirational or motivating.  After we have a lot of video collected we'll have a vote to pick what song (or songs) get used for the background music.

 

Any other ideas or suggestions are more than welcome!  Let's have fun with this!

 

Submit video clips to me at shortgorilla1@gmail.com

Loving the idea! For now I only have this video of myself, which ain't the best but might work if you're after an "everyday people working out at home/anywhere instead of a gym" style. Might make a new one, perhaps in some nerdy outfit or something, this thread is inspiring.

 

Also, if I may draw your attention towards a "no excuses" amazing short clip of cn3wton doing doubleunder rope jumps in the friggin' snow, if he's ok with it being included.

 

As for songs, I'll probably come up with a few decent suggestions, right now I can only think of "Action" by Powerman 5000 which stuck to me after hearing it in a tricking sampler video.

 

P.S. Anxious to see if "shortgorilla in leotard" will be part of that video

Your video is exactly what we need.  Thank you.  I edited my original post so that people can send clips to my email, as I don't trust trying to rip them off youtube and the like.

 

I can't view the clip of cn3wton, is it hosted anywhere like vimeo or youtube?

I'll have to see what I can do, just started on the workout path so no hardcore jump roping in the snow or anything yet, but we'll see.

 

As for music, I submit these.. I've never been a fan of motivational videos that have singing... I like just music.

Love the idea!!  I can probably get some footage of Lightsaber spinning and such.  Though it's brutally cold outside right now so it's definitely going to be a short clip.  

 

Songs:

 

Fireflight - What I've Overcome; For Those Who Wait; Unbreakable

 

Matt Dylan - Overcome

 

These next ones motivate me; maybe not others.

 

All That Remains - Won't Go Quietly; Focus Shall Not Fail

 

In This Moment - Beautiful Tragedy; Violet Skies; From the Ashes

Send me any length of footage, just know that if it is long I will most likely be cutting large chunks out of it so everyone gets as close to equal time as I can manage.  Or maybe the video will wind up being super long.  Anything goes at this point!

so... you don't want youtube links emailed you want the video emailed??

 

 

it's gonna take me a while because my internet sucks... I will have to try to figure out how to download it from youtube because once I upload it I delete it from my phone...

I have yet to recieve any submissions via email.  shortgorilla1@gmail.com.  Let's do this nerds!

 

I took some saber spinning footage last night, but I'm not at all happy with how it turned out.  I'll try to get more in the next few days.  Or, as alienjenn said, you can see if you like anything on my youtube page and I can send you the video that way too.  (hopefully the link works right)

I will try to rip from youtube but I haven't had much luck with that in the past.  I would prefer getting the original footage in my email but if that's not an option we'll figure it out.  :pirate:

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn't one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.

Thanks for everyone contributing so far, please keep at it!  I will hold a vote for the music after Christmas.  Still hoping for more submissions, but I'm sure this will turn out awesome.
