“Visit Tamyrh”

#ScienceFiction #Dystopian #SpaceOpera #WorldBuilding #Experiment #mp4

I was testing mp4 creation software and I came up with this. It’s a short, visual tour through the known areas of my world, Tamyrh. It isn’t perfect and there is no sound, but it’ll do for now. Constructive feedback is welcome.

Cheers,
J. I. Rogers

I replaced the mp4 animation with an mp4 video after I added a few panels and corrected the bottom banner. There’s still no soundtrack/narration – that’ll come.
Here are all of the images in the order that they appear.

  1. I thought I just left a reply, but I think it disappeared. Never mind. This is really good, Jenn!
    Add some dramatic music, possibly a voice over?
    One criticism: The Seep, especially the first pic, doesn’t look menacing enough to me. I imagined it as rather dark and gloomy, with a thick yellow-green atmosphere and pools of thick toxic stuff.
    All the other graphics are spot on.
    One other observation: the map is really helpful when trying to picture Tamryrh for the first time. You may have changed it since I read the ebook, but having the map at the front would’ve been good. When my mom read it I printed the map from your website for her. Of course, this is the beauty of having the physical book.

    1. Thanks for all the helpful insights – as mentioned, I was testing Canva, so I used their images. As the feedback has been positive, I’ll look into software that’ll let me add multiple soundtracks. I’ve already got the mic.
      The map gets upgraded each time a book is published; I add new sites as they are mentioned. This map is for book 3.
      I’ll have to start painting again so I can get The Seep right 😀

  2. Excellent production, Jenn, but maybe slow it down to leave more time for viewers to take in the graphics? And the text could be moved in a bit from the edges — especially on the first frame, where it’s cut off on the sides.

    I agree with Chris re the voice over and music — especially the voice over. Let us hear the author! 🙂
