Happy Happy School Gifs start now in Pixiv
And so in a moment of writer’s block I’ve decided to spend the day ripping out gifs, and it sure does take long to rip each one separately, as of the time of writing i’m barely past the seven minute mark and it’s been hours.
It never ceases to amaze me on how such a simple thing could require such tons of time to generate. I mean, it’s basically the same file, plus some simplifications and of course the total omission of sounds, it’s also being scaled down to a much smaller size and framerate so why it lasts as long as a song, really gets me scratching my head.
It’s like saying a thatched hut requires more time than building an ornate palace. How that works is totally beyond me.
If push comes to shove, I may need another day ripping out the delectable parts off of the videos and it probably may take another three if not four months if i release them on pixiv everyday. Well at least I’ll have something to show for what I’ve worked on.
So as I’m looking at these videos, they sure have that retro feel to it, not that old, I’d say about the era of the b-grade 90’s, especially the parts where it shows the patrons of the bar and the lighting is all dimmed. Maybe it was the quality of the tapes I watched but whenever I see that kind of filter, I immediate remember those Godzilla movies as well as some classic Sentai shows.
Project Karen’s Dialogues so far
For the moment the dialogue I’ve put in might as well be considered just stand-ins for creative writing gold, since they’re rather bland. But then again, b-movies aren’t generally that self-aware of how bad they are, but as far as making an entertaining piece, taking oneself too seriously can only go so far unless the visuals are so bad its good.
The way I see it is, for humorous results, good visuals need hokey dialogue, while bad visuals need really serious ones. So I guess I’m in the safe zone with the former, but if I’m going to make the audience wrench their eyes away from the perverted low angle shots peeking up Karen’s thong leotardish constume, it might as well be something worth a quick peek.
Now I’m not building this project with a notepad of the script. That doesn’t work with me considering that there is no guarantee I can always find or build the require materials as I need. It has to be done on the fly. Basically, I build the scenes first and then add the dialogues later. So while it’s not that much of a priority for me, considering that I’m currently stuck here unable to generate anymore footage since I need that RAM to create gifs.
Another thing is that I prefer not to have to extend footage anymore than I have to which means I need to keep whatever they say concise without too much lingering on, despite how much eye candy they are.
After all, let’s not forget in H2S, many commented on how long the twerking scene was…there IS a limit to how much a good thing can be displayed on the screen before it gets too tiring.
I do foresee the writing aspect of the work to be much easier once I’ve gotten all the footage I think I’ll need. So for the next topic, here’s a couple of ideas some have kindly presented and my take on them.
First, the Slave Auction idea. It’s pretty obvious given how Karen has a gag and some toys buzzing happily away inside her, she’s obviously being coerced to do so. Slave Auctions of course sound like a good start for such themes. Now that I think of it, it’s kinda like Planet of the Apes, but instead of ugly monkeys it’s beautiful Humans. Which means….it’s pretty much the equivalent of time travelling to a bygone age except they aren’t time travelling… huh….
So anyway my take on this is that I’m a little hesitant. The main reason being that since this is going to be a Karen-only show, the last thing I want to do is have some other pretty girl steal the show from her. (I’m looking at you, RIN!) regardless if the girl is taller or shorter, flatter or bustier, it will create a nice contrast.
Of course I do know the charm of it. Economically speaking, Karen doesn’t need to do anything. Just make her do an idle stand with her limbs locked in place, add a crowd and at least one talking person as the seller and we can call it a day. Not much posing needed for Karen to do except for maybe turn around and stuff.
However, another element of the Auction scene is the tension between at least two possible buyers, which basically amounts to “either she gets bought by an asshole, or a worse asshole” choice. This part however, would be ruined if such characters were never properly introduced which means more footage…you get the idea. There’s lots of really bad movies out there that ended up using too little time to introduce who these characters are and therefore whatever impact they have said or done is totally lost.
Then again she is in what seems to be a royal parade with all those rich trappings and noble looking characters in the background. Which means those Royalty characters may have already gotten her. I.e. making the whole idea of an auction pretty moot.
Now the Sex Games idea, does have me thinking. The idea of some kind of ecchi fair or carnival may sound good if I could find a way to make it some kind of progression from “having a minor noble buy her then work her way up to royalty” but how to do that concisely does feel like I’d have to generate Happy School-class montage of various stuff.
Of course I already do have an outline in mind, it’s simple, but I won’t spoil it yet. Suffice to say, it’s not too far from what you may have already seen in your typical sci-fi “let’s explore primitve planets” tropes.
So that’s it for today. I have to finish up creating these gifs before I can resume working on Project Karen. As always my Discord chat room is always open so you can always chat me to discuss or ask about random things, or do minor to mid-level repairs to your MMD models or give random advice. I’m bored waiting for these gifs to churn out, so feel free to reach out to me.
Just please make sure to introduce yourselves and behave
