Next Global Crisis – Training Room 17

NGC TR17 1 175x98 Next Global Crisis   Training Room 17UPDATED with review! Do you feel like it’s been too long since you’ve seen a Training Room video? I have some good news for you then: Next Global Crisis has just released the 17th episode in the series, and it features fan favorite and all around hottie Bluebird.

The last time we saw Bluebird was in Training Room 14. In spite of her tremendous success rate in Training Room scenarios, she was passed over for promotion to full operative status in favor of the duplicitous Angel. So, Bluebird has to continue to toil away in training, and she is pitted against a drone. Why a drone? Because there are currently no others trainees available to fight at this time. Why are there no other trainees? That would be telling.

The fight starts and Bluebird is very much in control. She quickly puts the drone down. However, as in their previous appearance, the drones abilities can be increased to a higher level. The battle against the drone continues and gets tougher and tougher, but Bluebird has just enough strength to eek out a win. Impressed, but far from satisfied, the computer informs Bluebird that she now gets to fight two drones. It’s at this point where we learn the computer has developed quite a negative attitude towards Bluebird. The fighting resumes and revealing any more would go into pretty heavy spoiler territory, so I will stop commenting on the specific story here.

This is my favorite type of Training Room video, one that serves as part smackdown, part narrative. The fight choreography is excellent as usual, and this episode reveals quite a bit about the current status of Elite Force. While I wouldn’t call it a “peril” movie, Bluebird does spend a great deal of the episode on the receiving end of things. Those of you who like stomach punches will probably find a great deal to like here. There is a short strangulation scene, but besides that there is not a ton here for the fetish crowd. Actually, there is one more thing. Bluebird removes her own boots in the episode. I know HM has plenty of readers who like a good de-booting.

So there you have it, another all around good effort by the NGC team. Obviously, this episode is carried by the actress who plays Bluebird, and I don’t think she has ever looked better. The storytelling in this episode is top notch and adds another layer of intrigue to the continuing Next Global Crisis storyline.

  1. Gorleser

    Video removed for violation of some sort of policy against free speech.

  2. I think their entire youtube account was removed.. that sucks. sounds like its gonna take a while to get that back up

  3. You’re right, fabio (and Gorleser). It looks like NGC’s YouTube channel has been removed for some kind of perceived policy violation. How annoying.

  4. Hello all,

    In the past week we have been the victim of what can only be described as a vendetta on YouTube. Someone has been flagging all of our videos repeatedly and although YouTube have not found fault with most they decided in their ‘wisdom’ that a handful broke their vague guidelines. I knew this would happen at some point so I’m not that bothered, it just creates more work for us when we could be planning our next shoot.

    The upshot of this will likely be less violent trailers in future. We will NOT alter the content of our films but clearly we are offending someone with the content in the trailer so we will tread more lightly there on the violence aspect and major more on the story in an attempt to pacify YouTube and whoever it is that hates us so much.

    It is pretty easy to find much more genuine violence on YouTube and some very crass videos, not to mention blatant copyright infringements of TV shows and films, but rather than address those issues they deem it more important to suspend independent film makers providing original content, oh well.

  5. Honestly, I don’t even think it has to do with the content; I think YouTube pretty much pulls ANY video that they get enough complaints about.

    If I post ANY video, it gets pulled immediately, no matter what the content is. Because some douchebag–probably a bitter failed competitor–writes complaints about it.

    I think Rye has had the same thing happen to him.

    Lets all go to a new Tube service, yes? Can anyone recommend one that has something more sophisticated than a pull-any-video-we-get-a-complaint-about policy?

  6. Of course you make a good point. There is no doubt that YouTube is far too big for the amount of people analysing the violation notices. We had our TR13 trailer taken down for nudity… anyone who owns that video let alone merely watched the trailer knows that everyone is fully clothed throughout. It was simply a case of the YT reviewer either not watching the video properly or at all before pulling it. I will still attempt to alter the trailers in the hope of the content not being pulled, I’m aware it will be an uphill task but whether we are breaking the rules or not it’s a good marketing tool so I am prepared to persevere. I just hope whatever we are left with can still represent the actual complete film and hope that our regular customers realise why the trailer might be a bit less action packed than the film. I think they will understand though because they are extremely clever.

  7. that sucks. how hard is it to create a youtube-esque type site? just make youre own site.

  8. Well, unfortunately, it really is necessary to try to maintain some kind of presence on YouTube because it’s the second most-used search engine in the world (so I’ve heard). It’s probably one of the single best ways to market a video. It’s a shame that just anyone—whether a random nobody or a disgruntled douchebag competitor or an uptight puritanical nimrod—can just come along and basically shut down anyone’s YouTube channel or at least get a video flagged/removed, even if the video/channel clearly does not violate any of YouTube’s stated policies.

    I’ve had my YouTube channel shut down as well, and I know that several producers, if not all of them, have experienced similar problems.

    There are a few other online video services like Vimeo and DailyMotion, and they have their advantages and disadvantages like everything else, but unfortunately none of them can offer access to YouTube’s incredibly vast audience.

  9. darklord

    that is really lame, especially since i haven’t seen the trailer yet! lol… any chance you upload the trailers on your site like TBFE does? i like how that site has their trailers always there.

    ridiculous they pull that too b/c i have seen far more graphic and violent things on youtube, what a joke

  10. Hey guys,
    Some of my movies get pulled within a few hours of posting them and I am on my 5th youtube account this year… lol. I’ve had the same feelings as Alex and sometimes I get the feeling its a rival producer.

    What I have done is made all my youtube videos unlisted so they are not searchable on youtube but anyone coming to sites like this or any other place I advertise will see them because the link is posted. This has seemed to fix the problem as none of them have been flagged. I plan on making new clips for all my movies with zero violence that directs all the traffic to a place like this where they can see the good stuff.

    Alex-
    There are actually a ton of adult tube sites out there we could post at with no chance of being flagged. The only problem with those places is they tend to be infested with spyware and worms. I have considered making my own heroine tube site and my luck with youtube this year is pushing me more in that direction.

  11. deathcake

    TBFE had this problem too. Why not upload it to dailymotion? If it’s advertised here, then at least everyone on this site will see it. And upload a video to facebook too.

  12. deathcake

    Actually, come to think of it. Search for superheroine on youtube and do a recently uploaded filter. There’s been nothing for days, which is unusual, so maybe they are taking down most things with a superheroine tag.

  13. deathcake

    Sorry for yet another post, but it brings to mind the rule on youtube about using youtube commercially, without any agreement with youtube. You think that could be connected?

  14. So… any chance of seeing the trailer for this somewhere soon? or releasing the video?

  15. saxman314

    You all know which rival producer it is. Just check back a few months ago on this blog and it becomes self-evident. Glad to see you all have the class not to point the finger directly, though.

  16. Man that sucks I didn’t get to see it. Oh well, looks like it’ll probably be good anyway and I’m sure HM will review it here.

  17. I tend to agree that certain keywords seem to be targeted periodically. All of our giantess YouTube videos in our old account were wiped out on the same day for example. They showed no violence, crushing, nudity or anything that could be construed as remotely objectionable or sexual… though there are PLENTY of giantess clips out there that do. Association with the keyword alone seemed to be enough to get us booted. Content of the video itself doesn’t seem to be as much of a factor as the keywords selected… or perhaps those keywords are simply drawing viewers that are “flag happy”. Or perhaps those keywords are drawing the attention of rival producers. Or perhaps those keywords are scrutinized by YouTube’s mysterious review panel. Who knows?!?

    The real problem with YouTube is that they don’t tell you WHY something is a violation, or which scene was deemed objectionable… so there is nothing that you can do to rectify the situation or to cut a new clip that avoids whatever is causing the problem.

  18. Perilforpussycats

    Perhaps, the simple fact that you create videos that show women getting beaten up and tortured has something to do with it;p (I am teasing). Youtube has had tons of pressure recently against them to properly check uploaded videos for any forms of violence, sex, copyright. Moving to another site is the best idea it seems.

  19. @Perilforpussycats
    Not all superheroine videos feature women getting beaten up and tortured… though maybe just the popular ones. :)

    We don’t put videos on YouTube for the fun of sharing them with our buddies. The idea is to introduce our products (films) to people that would otherwise never know that we are making them, or to give existing customers a glimpse of the latest release. Getting your trailer online is easy… but putting them some place where there is an actual audience to view it is the trick. Tapping into Youtube will always be desirable. Big budget filmmakers do the same thing, and get away with far more graphic material.

    Indie producers could start their own niche trailer/clip site easily, but I don’t see how that would provide a benefit. You’ll just be “preaching to the choir”… showing your clips to people that are ALREADY watching your website for updates.

  20. Indeed.

    Anyway, I don’t want people to worry that they won’t get to see a trailer for TR17 when it’s available. At the very least I will post a link here for you to download it so you can see what you’ll be getting (Bluebird in a deadly fight with 2 drones).

    Anyone in possession of Episode 8 or TR 16 will get this one early and at a discount too.

  21. deathcake

    Type the word “ryona” into youtube and do a date search for most recent. It only seems to be the afore mentioned superheroine videos that are getting taken down

  22. You have my moral support NGC! I’ve seen nothing wrong with your videos, in fact they are some of the best in the genre and totally unoffensive. Youtube is a bunch of hypocrites for what they allow. Then you can’t even make a case for yourself since none of them will listen.

  23. Commiserations NGC – your stuff is great.

    Although it’s possible to put the videos up elsewhere – as said above you can’t advertise very well on other sites – since youtube has such a massive userbase.

    I would put up the videos as they are, since they’re flagged incorrectly – and put in a complaint to the mods that your videos are being flagged for reasons which don’t reflect the content. Although the mods rarely listen, occasionally they actually do their job.

  24. Andrew

    Everybody knows my concerns about violence in these movies and a never ever found any problem in the videos from NGC. I can’t wait for the next Training Room.

    Okay, so YouTube is run by morons, but more importantly.
    When does this new Training Room come out?
    I’ve been watching my email waiting for the pre-release and I haven’t seen it yet.
    I’m anxious to order it.

  26. DianaKnightMustLose

    2 out of 3 Youtube videos go unwatched, so reguardless of how big the website is (it is the second largest search engine and in the top ten of most visited websites), the “exposure” some might think goes with it is minimal.

    I know SleeperKid at Sleeperkidsworld has been dealing with people flagging his videos on Youtube for years so he started using Blip.tv

    That might be a decent alternative. Daily Motion requires you to log in, and that can be a bit of a bitch.

  27. While that statistic may be true it certainly wasn’t of our account which had accrued almost 1 million hits and was gaining them at a rate of 120,000 a month. It is an important tool for marketing films and building awareness. No doubt we will have to continually restart as whichever person(s) is flagging our trailers maintains their campaign against us. So be it, I have incredible stamina when it comes to this sort of thing and will not be derailed by someone who is either genuinely offended (in which case watch something else) or vindictive.

  28. Exactly. My youtube channel had received well over a million views when suddenly everything I posted–with no nudity, nothing more than comicbook violence–got flagged almost immediately.

    I eventually gave up, but maybe I’ll start up again. My hunch is that it’s the same person doing all the complaining, so maybe if we all flood YouTube with videos from multiple accounts that jerkoff will finally give up himself.

  29. You should start again. The future is on our side, before long it will take 30 seconds to upload a new video of whatever quality, no skin off my nose therefore. Also while the sheer size of YT means that they delete accounts on a whim to save time, the upside of this is that they do not have time to keep up with repeat accounts. If I’m doing something illegal then call the cops, I’m not. Neither am I infringing copyright, I own the material. If they want the moral high ground on violence then why not start by taking down the thousands of videos that depict real street fights.

  30. In a 6 degrees of separation kind of way – my housemate knows some of the low down youtube mods, I’ll ask him to ask them to have a look into the mass video removals.

    As you say they normally just take down the vids quickly without much thought – to save time, but there is a review possibility. I’ll see if they can do anything.

  31. deathcake

    Again, have you all looked into the fact youtube is a bit funny about using youtube to promote your own business without permission from them. The company I work for was going to use youtube to promote it’s products, but apparently the IT guy said they may be issues with there terms and conditions.

    I hope it’s not true, as youtube is my hub for new superheroine material!

  32. Heh… they just sacked my Amazing Girl trailer. I think it’s contagious.

  33. darklord

    i love bluebird, tempted to buy but quick question – does this vid pick intertwine with the story from episode 8 at all??

    also who is the jealous jerk off you guys keep referring to? why be so vague, just call him/her out on it

  34. Yes this video ties in with the overall story and will prove important for the future. I’m confident all Bluebird lovers will enjoy it!

    As for who might be flagging my vids, well personally I have no idea, and without proof certainly couldn’t go around accusing anyone.

  35. maar13

    Have to tell you that I liked the video a lot, especially the ending, it caught me off guard, which was good. I am starting to become a big fan.

    Great job.

  36. AlyAdmirer

    Well, THIS Bluebird lover ABSOLUTELY loved it. :) Possibly my favorite video in the TR series, and if this was the last TR video, I can’t imagine it ending on a higher note.

    I truly cannot wait to find out what’s in store regarding my beloved Bluebird.

  37. John Hugger

    The video was great! I just watched. But I have only question:

    WHERE THE BEARHUGS????!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, I recomend! The actress is awesome!

  38. John Hugger

    I’m sorry!

    “WHERE ARE THE BEARHUGS??!!!!!”

    Great video! Great actress! I recomend! I believe everybody will like this one!

  39. Jobber Lover

    I liked this one a lot. Bluebird is clearly one of my favs. The ending was a little disappointing to me. I thought Bluebird was going to get shalacked at the end, but instead she escapes in a direction I didn’t know you could go. Looks like you can leave the training room towards the camera.

    Over all, I like it for Bluebird and NGC fighting is the best out there. But I would loved to have seen them take the next step and let Bluebird REALLY get knocked around. I will say this: NGC is my favorite in the genera so I anxiously await every one of their releases and I loyally purchase them the day they come out. Even though there are some things I’d like to see them go further with, I have enjoyed all of their work so far and I don’t expect that to change. By the way, they are also extremely professional any time I’ve had to interact with them on a customer service level.

    Thanks NGC guys and gals. Keep up the good work. I’ve been a fan since day one and I look forward to more from you.

  40. DangerousDave

    A very cool TR episode, even while she gets a bit of a beat down I love watching Bluebird kick ass. Bluebird comes in a close third in my top NGC babes after Angel and Suki.

    @ Jobber, Speaking of Suki I’m pretty sure the bad guy enters from the camera side of the training room in her feature episode (I’ve watched it plenty :)

  41. Naveed

    Yea, it is pretty sad that their you tube account got pulled out. It does not make sense. I was wondering whether any wrestling moves are used in here like back breaker or bear hugs?

  42. Thanks for all of your responses. It doesn’t have those specific moves, they are more Sebastian Luner territory than Drone but there are chokes and what not if that is of interest? Anyway it was fun to make and I am always pleased people enjoyed it.

    Regarding YouTube I hope it will be a temporary problem. They have been very unhelpful so we’ll just have to play a game of trial and error to work out what they will delete and what they won’t. For example, is this okay?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrkLTYJxX74

    If they pull that one then I’ll draw some new conclusions. Meanwhile the above video belongs to the new account at YouTube:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/NextGlobalCrisis

    A bit low tech on the basis that we don’t know how long it will last, but all being well we can start building it up again in a way that won’t deeply offend anyone or break draconian rules.

  43. deathcake

    I wouldn’t bet on it. TBFE youtube video, providing a link to a private listing got pulled, and it contained one picture. I managed to bookmark the private listing link. It’s getting ridiculas. I still think it’s because you are promoting you business on youtube.

  44. I had a chat with the friend of a freind I have works on youtube.

    He said he had a quick look, but couldn’t really get the whole story. From what he gleamed though the account was flagged after some complaints, so the videos came under more careful scrutiny – or something along those lines.

    Hopefully, with a different account you should be okay – at least for a while. Hopefully the a-hole complaining for basicly no reason has had his fun.

  45. @deathcake

    Yes you might be right. In which case I would expect them to pull the video that is up there since it is still promotion, that is sort of what I am testing here. If they were smart then they’d have asked me to pay some kind of advertising rate rather than pull my channel, I’d have paid it almost certainly.

    @Swampy

    I’m very impressed you know such a person, it seems to be run by robots and contact forms that don’t go anywhere to this point. I think he is largely correct in that assessment because they would pull a couple of vids one day, then another a few days later. They would of course send me a message with their rules attached but it’s clear that the videos live or die on the whims of whoever is adjudicating and what sort of mood they are in. I will just have to find the magic formula that doesn’t upset them. After all, they don’t need me to get by.

  46. Hey NGC, is it possible that the heroine can lose more often in these videos? Other than Angel or a Heroine vs Heroine matchup, the good girl always wins. I’d like it to be more 50/50 with the heroine not being able to leave the training room on her own strength at times like it was with Angel when she took on the drones in that training exercise.

  47. I actually would have liked if this ended with the drones knocking Bluebird out cold and taking her with them. After all, in your last comic installment you showed that Red Mist has several death trap ideas for all our heroines, including Bluebird. If she were knocked out and captured, then she easily could have been put into such a trap. Still waiting on that one epic Bluebird ko sequence.

  48. @Chris

    Do you mean training room videos as opposed to episodes?

    @Mike

    I think what is in the plot coming up will interest you far more than a couple of drones doing that deed.

  49. Oh sorry NGC, yup I meant training room videos, I should have specified. Your regular episodes are almost perfect, Ep 1-8 has the best acting, fight choreography, directing, and productivity I have seen. It looks very well put together and it seems you do put a great deal of effort and thought into them. And same with the training room videos obviously I dont want to sell them short, but the training room videos could use some more heroines losing at the end of the video.

  50. TwistedJedi

    Well with Angel having gone evil *very sad* I think i’m going to have to start backing Bluebird, she was my second fave, has one of the sexiest costumes (although now that I think about it Athena’s revamped Training room costume was probably the best costume ever….)

  51. @Chris

    Oh right, well we actually finished shooting Training Room videos, and the series is almost finished. If the ‘good’ girls did have a slightly better outcome in training room it was probably to balance out the fact that they were having a terrible time in episodes, I wasn’t really conscious of doing that but if Elite Force is getting decked in nearly all of our films it means that they’re not really credible. One complaint about the training room was that the stakes weren’t high enough, so you should see them raised in future.

    @TwistedJedi

    We will be attempting costume upgrades in season two. There should also be some interaction with regular customers about designing some in the future.

  52. Will u be making changes to ALL costumes? Cuz I really Like Suki’s and Athenas just they way they are heheh. Although I do think it would be a good idea to have Angels costume changed to something a bit more evil looking since shes now with red mist apparently. Nobody looks better in that tight, silver catsuit than Angel so I was thinking go with that but maybe change the color to something darker? I just think the suit was waaay to sexy to be shelved for good. Just some suggestions…

  53. Richard

    It was great to see real jeopardy in the Training Room! Also this video finally delivered on the promise of TR 8, by having a heroine fight two drones simultaneously and lose. Well, almost! I’m now a bona fide Bluebird fan and I’m glad she managed to get away (taking tips from Sebastian Luner) because I want to see her out of the Training Room in more interesting stories. Bravo for the action, loved the stretching scene especially.
