As mentioned in my last entry, my first official stop for information was the Slusho! website. One of the early images released of the movie, featured Jason [Rob's brother] wearing a Slusho! T-shirt. So this was an obvious connection and what seemed to set people off in the early days [around July from what I read in the news updates] as a point of initial research.

As usual, anything in the cut contains possible spoilers...

Fun fact: Slushos! are like slurpees! XD

The website itself gives the appearance of a bright and happy drink of sorts. Actually it's so happy overkill that it puts actual Japanese websites to shame. Anyone would think that the drink was full of magic mushrooms or something based on how the marketing on it sounds. Most of the site is irrelevant to the 'Cloverfield picture', but a few pieces of information drew my interest.


The only thing that I did get sucked in with while visiting this site, was that there was an actual competition to create an advertisement for Slusho! [seeing the company wanted to expand into the US]. I actually thought that was part of the whole ARG too, and went and read all of the terms and conditions in the hope that something would have been hidden there, only to find that it was probably the only thing real about the site. Typical, that you're researching a fake company, which means actual real info is annoying! XD

 
My next branch of research will lead me to the Tagruato website.

Last night I began my delve into the mysteries of Cloverfield. I want to try and get the experience as close to possible if I was playing the ARG at the time of release. Of course that's not completely possible, seeing even going to the official sites have the later released information and I've run into a few minor details along the way. But I didn't just want to do this they 'easy way' and just go and read a summary of everything. So I decided to start my quest by looking at firstly the first month of updates at Project Cloverfield to get a feel for the news that happened in the first month, as well as using the Cloverfield Despoiler Wiki as a starting point for links and references of places to visit. Another good website out there is Cloverfield Clues, although I will probably leave that one until last as a place to cross reference and find answers to the information I gathered.

My first LJ entry covering my research will just cover the news articles that I looked at from the first month. Nothing really spoiler-ey here, so no need for a cut.
  • Cloverfield [or more so 'The Cloverfield Project'] was one of the initial working titles for the movie along with the more commonly known 01-18-08.
  • An early image released from the movie shows the going away party with the timestamp of 01/18/2008 12:01AM. Perhaps the original plan was to have the movie take place on the release date, but with the viral marketing campaign, it made more sense for it to be set on another date [it's set in May, but the year is not listed].
  • One of the early images released on the official site was of Jason [Rob's brother] wearing a Slusho t-shirt. A website had been set up for this company.
  • People speculated that the title would be "Monstrous" because a poster from the San-Deigo ComicCon was leaked with that name on it. The poster was simply part of a set of four, each with a similar word.
  • An unrelated site which also had it's own viral marketing campaign for an online video game sparked a lot of interest as people thought it was related to Cloverfield. It was later dismissed as having nothing to do with it. Mind you, the site was quite intriging in it's own way.
More in the next entry. My first stop was the Slusho website, as it appeared to be one of the early clues given out, but I'll put that in another entry to keep things neat and tidy.

I know most of you are going to be bored as hell with all this [or feel free to ignore it XD], but I want to keep a record for myself so I can keep a report my findings and thoughts on things as I go. Hell, I sound like I'm writing a research paper for college or something. *blink*

I was meant to post these the other day, but didn't get a chance to. I went back and fixed up my Cloverfield wallpaper. Actually I ended up with two versions of it. One of them has the "Clover was here" text on it, and the other one is just the scratch mark.

I decided the other scratches looked lame [seriously, they didn't even look like a monster XD], so I went and hunted for some brushes that would be more suitable, but couldn't find any. In the end I decided to just use the scratch mark from the Statue of Liberty on the official poster. So I just enlarged that and blended it into the background [which was darker than it was in the poster image].


Version 1 [with text]...


Version 2 [without text]...

Actually it was lucky I got these finished the other day, as my laptop's monitor decided to shit itself. I really don't know what happened, but the screen has become really bright and wishy-washy. The trouble is that my laptop's screen has a brightness setting, but not a contrast one. So I turned the brightness down so that white pages don't blind me, but as a result, dark graphics [and even ACF's layout] are almost impossible to make out. Even something like the banners I made, they appear as if they have had a color dodge thrown over them or something. It's horrible.

------

Speaking of posters though, I ordered an official Cloverfield movie poster off eBay today. I'm going to have it framed and put up in my office/games room. It'll look awesome I think!!! ;)

I'm also going to be starting my delve back into the clues of Cloverfield tonight, so expect me to bore you all with more stuff that I find. Sorry!

------

Other than that, I went to see some local Australian wrestling tonight. It was quite fun. Actually it was a lot better than I thought it would be. Some of these guys pulled off some pretty good moves. There was these really funny guys called the Bastard Brothers, they cracked me up [no pun intended as one was named Cracker Jack XD]. My brother bought one of their T-shirts, but it was just so funny, cause it was a plain white T-shirt and then they just wrote on it with a marker. A few people bought them too, just cause it was funny.

I warned you I'd be doing this review, yes I did. ^_^

I finally have written up my review of Cloverfield. I just posted it on a Cloverfield forum I post at, so figured I'd post it here. Even if you don't like Cloverfield, check it out and let me know what you think [as I haven't done a review this long before, my AC and Silent Hill ones were a lot shorter XD]. It's kind of also a personal experience about the movie as well as being a review of the movie itself.

Oh, but it does contain massive spoilers. So only read if you've either seen it, or don't care to see it, or don't care about spoilers.


------

Oh, and I saw Cloverfield again for the 4th time today. I sat 5 rows from the front. No motion sickness for me. Hell, I found the experience to be awesome. So if you don't get motion sickness ... sit near the front. It rocks! ^_^

I was looking for a Cloverfield wallpaper today, and seriously, there are hardly any. I was quite surprised seeing the popularity and lead-up to the movie. Then there were none which had the image on the right hand side. I found a couple with the image on the left, but I have my icons there, so I don't usually like wallpapers like that.

So I decided to make my own. This is the result:


(Clicky image to enlarge)

I was just going to go with something basic with the movie poster and the logo, but then I came up with a cool and light-hearted idea. On one of the Cloverfield forums I've been posting at, people have nicknamed the monster 'Clover'. So I thought it would be cool to add some scratches to the empty area, along with the text "Clover was here! 01.18.08". I thought it was cute [if you can call a monster that XD]. I'd like to improve it though, as I just used some brushes I had on my PC already and there's probably better ones out there. That and I think it's only the third wallpaper I've ever made aside from the basic ones on AC.net.

Oh, and my brother told me today I'm like a Cloverfield fan girl! Can I have permission to whack him now! Although I do admit to doing a little bit of squeeing, when I found a Japanese Cloverfield mini-movie poster on eBay. I was like ... I've got to get that ... so I did! I just thought it was awesome with the Japanese logo on it and that.
