The episode library will be a big part of the new Gizmoplex! As such, we will need to create promotional data for each episode, to present on the “shelves” of the library.
Some of you may remember the old Rhino VHS copy covers, which featured an image from the episode, as well as a riff in talk bubbles.
Our “cover” probably won’t look exactly like this, but we’d like to have some screenshots to illustrate each episode, as well as a representative riff.
Collecting iconic screenshots and favorite riffs for the entire series is a huge undertaking. But it occurred to us that if we spread this task out across a community of volunteers, it might be easier to do quickly — and a little more fun.
So that’s where this category comes in: we’d like to ask MSTies to help out, if you have time and inclination to do so! Each post will list five episodes we need screenshots and riffs for, starting with season one.
You can submit one to three screenshots in comments on each post. Please keep your images at minimum 800px x 600px and 72 dpi. File type does not matter. YES, screenshots of host segments are welcome too!
If you’d ALSO like to throw in a favorite riff, choose one that’s relatively short. Remember those old VHS examples above as a guideline, and include the timestamp of where it happens in the episode. Ideally the riff should make sense when used in context with the screenshot(s) you’ve chosen. Riffs are optional, though, and if you’d rather just share screenshots, that is fine too.
All of this info will be collected and may be used in the Gizmoplex library! Your contributions are greatly appreciated, even if you can’t participate on every post. There’s zero pressure to do EVERY episode. That’s why crowdsourcing is awesome! Whatever you can do will help.
Here are the first five episodes to get things started:
101 The Crawling Eye
102 The Robot Vs. The Aztec Mummy
103 Mad Monster
104 Women Of The Prehistoric Planet
105 The Corpse Vanishes
Thanks so much, team!
