Hi Mike,

I swear blind I've seen ads on it in the past.

Screen grabbed just now.

And again I could swear I've seen video ads in the past.

Hi Mike,

I turned it off years ago and have double-checked - monetisation is definitely not activated on our channel. If you see ads, it's probably because YouTube has rightly/wrongly identified copyrighted material on a video (like the track 'Athmo3-video copilot' on the Minty trailer) and forces ads onto it whether you want it to or not. If it's inaccurately showing ads, let me know and I can challenge it.

If you go about 10 secs in there's a marker on the timeline, with a pop-up ad.

It was all shot and edited by the time I was approached, I asked them if I'd approached Rebellion about it, and they said they wanted to get it all finished, since it had been shot and edited - so they were too far along the line of putting money into it for Rebellion to say no.

I'm no expert on these things, but basically trying to railroad an IP holder into giving permission for a fan film doesn't strike me as the best way to create a healthy relationship between the parties.

OK, so there were ads on it in the past?

Like I said I had no say in the matter, and by that point I didn't really care either because it didn't seem to make much difference either way, it's an already compromised relationship.

The channel is seven years old, I seem to recall turning ads off after maybe three months.

That's on this one https://youtu.be/cLIfbQeSW2w yeah? Yes, an audio firm has put in a copyright claim so it automatically shows ads - we don't run them or benefit from them.

Then we'd need to file a dispute. I'll email you when I'm back in the office.

Good stuff, cheers!  Had a quick re-watch there into the bargain, it really is a fun little thing, swearing aside.  The more I look at the execution of the GIs and the biochips, the more I like it.

Yeah, the swearing is something I wouldn't have gone with personally - Maybe gone with Filthy Norts or something similarly comic-like.

Think I suggested having the chip swearing fritzing on the swear words as an alternative, but didn't really have much say in the matter...

All the chip dialogue was recorded way afterwards anyway so it could quite easily have been changed.

There was talk about sticking in the drill probes somewhere and I was up for doing that, but I seem to recall they'd not really shot enough coverage to have it in there.

By the time I got to it were wasn't a natural place for it.

Rotoscoping that final shot of Rogue took a fair amount of time, especially since I was only originally supposed to be doing the eyes and some muzzle flashes.
