Hey there, long time lurker here. I apologize that I only post when I have something to contribute. But finally, I do. I've been working on this for a while and would love for you all to check it out!

I made a video called Beautiful Lies a while back and posted it here. Ubisoft caught wind of it and really liked it so I thank you for that and hope I can make it repeat.

Once again, I am astonished at how cleanly the cuts are made.

You win, sir. Someone should make this your full time job.

Genius! I love how you included a few flashes of Altaïr even though Ezio is the focus of the video.
You asked "who is the better assassin ?" on your beautiful lies video ; do you have a preference for one of them ?

Haha there's like half a second of Desmond in there too if you don't blink. Altair is an OG and a badass and I prefer his style to Ezio's, but I like Ezio more simply because he's more fleshed out as a character and we've been with em from baby to old man.

And thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback!

I remember when Hamps first posted up his "Beautiful Lies" video, it was amazing. So much better than other music videos, which is just trailers mashed togeter. I knew it would get a lot of views, but I never though it would be recognized by Ubisoft.

Hopefully Ubisoft recognizes you again, "Hamps, he's done it again!"

Maybe they'd look at THB and say "Hmm, these guys really do their research. Much more sophisticated than our own forums". Cool Smile Tongue Sad Puzzled Crying

Just watched this again for about the fifth time and, as others have also expressed, I definitely love you, Hamps Love

Out of interest, do you mind me asking how old you are (not that it really matters)? You could definitely do this stuff full time Smile

I don't mind, I'm 25 and yeah, I'd love nothing more than to do this stuff full time.

Sorry, I was wiping my D.N.A. off of my keyboard due to the fact that this video made me climax.

Beautiful. The filters truly bring in the vibrant colors that this game possesses.

If that were the case, Brotherhood would have featured a brown color scheme to reflect how sh*tty it was.

I completely agree with the colours/seasons imagery that Ubisoft has used throughout Ezio's life. It might be a pretty complex way of looking at it and analysing the colour schemes but that's what THB is for! Big smile

I'd like to see Ezio's death because of the fact that we've literally been with him since his birth. Maybe that's why they made us be a part of that in AC2. As discussed before, the only logical way we'd be able to view his end is through the animated film coming out (where it's implied that he has heart issues and isn't as effective as he once was).

Hamps, you bring up a good point. I think if Ezio dies in Revelations it would be a very appropriate end to this series considering we've been with Ezio since his birth, whether it be one of a warrior or one of old age.

Also, it would cut off all chances of another Ezio sequel. Ubisoft needs to pull the plug on Ezio after this if they want to avoid becoming the Dreamworks of the gaming industry.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which

I know exactly what you mean about the colors representing different stages of life. They seemed to put a filter over everything to match the theme.

Thanks guys, I'm very glad you enjoyed it!

And yeah, about the lighting. I noticed when playing Brotherhood how different it is, thematically speaking. It's almost like they intentionally made it that way to reflect Ezio's aging through seasons. AC2's colors are brighter and varied, it's like his Spring time of youth (emotional teenager) into Summer (beard mode, prime of his life). Brotherhood is Autumn with the dark orange and red colors and the beginning signs of age ("A man of your age won't heal so quickly!"). And of course Revelations is most definitely the Winter of his life... greying beard, old man, colder colors, .... death??? *sniffle*

I could just be looking into it too much lol, but either way I decided to enhance that aspect through the color grading and lighting.

Absolutely fantastic editing and lighting as mentioned by others. Once again, I also love the music; it fits brilliantly.

You definitely need to make more AC videos Wink
