This topic is meant to help @IllustriousVar @Mesonak @Eljay with the new Brainstorm format (if I'm forgetting other people, sorry).
So, I just saw the newest video on the TTV YouTube channel and watched the part on G3. The cast is having trouble figuring out how to format G3 discussions going forward, and it's clear they don't want the hour-long structure, but they still want to do videos.
This topic exists for the sole purpose of helping them out. If anyone can help out with ideas, please comment below with an idea for their new format. I'll make a list of suggestions in this initial post whenever a new suggestion is made. I currently do not have any suggestions I can think of. I will also bold any suggestions they have accepted.
List of Suggestions:
@Bokarda: "Have each member pick their favorite concept for that week and do an in-depth video on it, starting with the content and moving on to criticisms and revisions. At the end of the video, they show a list of what has been canonized and what has been cut. This would make it clear to the audience what to work off of. In the event that two or more cast members choose the same concept, they do a collab video on it. This could help lessen the burden of having to go over content."
@Kardax: recaps. A tl;dr bulleted list to summarize the episode. "For example, if a new plot thing was introduced, that can be placed as added, if changes are made those can be shown as topic had some changes. If any set ideas were added, they can just be put up as reviewed and the status of their canonity (canon, semi-canon, non-canon)."
"15 to 20 minute videos that cover 2 to 3 concepts each; recap list at the start and end."
@odnanref101993: too much time spent on reading pitches in-stream instead of commenting on them (especially lore pitches). Start with "a way of doing lore pitches and discussion in video format, in an engaging way and easy to record way."
@Sanokal: "overall recap video... to get things kick-started again."
@ToaNoah_Wafflemeister: "invite creators of pitches that they like (and that they've read) to chat about it," "giving summaries and explaining stuff."
