Metart videos are boring.

This is not a news flash. They've always been boring.

I get more fun watching some commercials than I get out of watching most Metart videos. How do they make videos of beautiful, lovely models getting undressed so boring?

Many of their photosets are alluring, lovely, outstanding, really gorgeous to look at.

But my main question is: why can the Metart photosets be so alluring? And at the same time, their videos so boring?

Separately, when the downloaded Metart videos play back, there is sometimes a mosaic effect where the colors are sometimes pixellated, and that is just another distracting effect. What causes this? I don't get this effect watching videos I download from Diesel network or Teen Mega World or other sites I download from.

I don't have a gaming computer, that is set up for fast visual effects. But my laptop, and my desktop, are both fairly new, within the last year, so I should be able to play back even the 1080p videos with no problems, I would think.

pat362 (371) I'll give you my theory. When you are doing photos then the talent of the photographer is the main reason why the pictures come out as good as they do. He or she may take thousands of pictures but they probably select only the best of the lot so viewers only see those. I don't know what most viewers would think if they were to see them all. Then there is the question of technology to consider because photoshopping can fix and alter many things on photos so that the end product looks very different then the original material.

When you're doing video then you need a great camera operator but you also need the model to have a certain level of talent and that is probably where things start to fall apart. A great photographer may not be a great camera operator so sites that are dedicated to phototgraphy may not hire a video camera operator so the end product will not be as good eventhough there was a talented photographer behind the camera. Then there is the model. The only example I can come up is in regards to models and movies. How many very beautiful and talented models who look simply amazing on photos are simply attrocious once they appear in a movie? A talent for taking a particular pose does not equal a talent for acting and you do need some of that to do video. Then there's also the technology aspect.
Although I am sure that films can be manipulated in the same way that photos can. The time and expenses to do that makes the venture unprofitable for almost anyone except mainstream tv/movie studios

cjd2004 (0) I think quite a few of their videos are unscaled - this would explain the visual issues.

A lot of models have tried to cross over into acting. But very few models make it big as actors.

Marky Mark made the transition, and he has had an extremely successful career as an actor. His acting name is Mark Wahlberg.

I think of him as a model before he became an actor, because of the commercials he did for men's underwear.

But he was more famous as a singer than a model, before he became an actor: Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

Jessica Lange was a model before becoming an actress. Today, she is considered one of the best professional actors of her generation, having won Academy awards, Golden Globes, Emmys, and just about everything else an actor can win.

But for her first acting job, in King Kong, I remember reading that a lot of critics said she had no talent as an actress.

Rene Russo (she was in the Lethal Weapon franchise with Mel Gibson) has had a very successful acting career after starting out as a model.

But like you said, most models that try to get into acting find that it's a matter of luck as well as skill and looks that help to determine your success.

Anyway, there are a lot of factors in making a good video. More so than making a good photograph.

I agree with your points about models and the difference between a photoset and a video.

But you would think, unless the people that run Metart are completely blind, that they would realize how boring their videos are.

And that they would stop wasting so much of their time and money and site-space on hosting these boring videos on their site.

Either that, or get people who know how to shoot an interesting video.

But at the same time, I think that Femjoy videos are also boring. Femjoy videos are slightly better than Metart videos, but not by much.

On the other hand, maybe it's partly a softcore thing.

(Continued from above, because space limitations cut short the reply above):

Femjoy, on their Joymii site, and Metart, on their Sexart site, are both doing much better, more interesting videos as mid-core or hard-core.

I prefer Joymii over Sexart.

Is it possible that the videos Met-Art produces are bad because they consider themselves to be a mostly photo site and videos is just something they added to their library so that they could say they have some?

Those are excellent examples of models turned actor but I think that they are more the exception than the rule. It's been a while since I last saw King Kong but unless my memory is faulty then Jessica was rather good. At least as good as any actress could be in such a role. I didn't see too much of Peter Jackson's clusterfuck version of King Kong but Naomi Watts who's a very good actress didn't fair much better than Jessica did. I think Jessica's performance was a mixture of this being her first film, the writting and suggestions from the director in reagrds as to how she should handle the part. I got the distinct impression that he wanted her to be a little on the ditsy side. One thing is certain and that no matter what Jessica's backgroud was prior to doing acting. She certainly became one of the best American Actresses of her time. She is the perfect example
