Sith Formers 2... Only this time lasers instead of light sabers. We did not have any props at the time so we decided to use our fingers as guns instead. All the classroom doors were locked so we could not get rulers to use as guns, before naybody suggests that... this is another one of my old movies. Anyway hope you enjuy the laser show.

Sweet Jesus! Why did you bother uploading that?

Words fail me, when it comes to describing anything worthwhile about that. The effects were reasonable, it has to be said, but why did you waste your time doing this? Don't you have work to do?

I skipped through all that text at the end too, i've no idea what it said, but i just know its a bag of arse. The movie was 60% text ffs!

Please stop creating/uploading movies that serve no purpose. It wasn't a test - you did those months ago - it was just vapid and meaningless.

Incidentally, congratulations on the "anti-aliasing-from-hell" signature gif.

HAHAHA, Well said. Methinks you need to toggle with some of those options in the "Save for the Web" box in Photoshop bud. May I suggest that you use .png if you want that crappy drop shadow or .gif if you just want the text.

Hmm... Hmm... THere was only 20 seconds of fighting. THere is way too much titles. Dont use sabers for lasers, use well, lasers for lasers. Also add music. It seems odd with no sound and the a laser shot. THere was also many random effects (the explosion especially). It just didnt fit.

Dude seriously... the sound effects were horrible.
And... what the heck are you trying to do with these clips?
We need some sort of "viewer-muffler" to watch these things...

I'll give you credit for one thing Paul you voted yourself a 2, way too high but most would have voted themselves a 5 for that I give you a 1 instead of the 0 I would have. Please if you enjoy making these little clips go right a head have fun but we don't have to see it. OK? You have a camera so stop with the "old" movies write a script, make some story boards, take the time to shoot it, edit it(including sound), and add the effects, and then upload something worth looking at. Otherwise people are just not going to even look at you submissions just based on the fact that they are yours.

Hasn't this been uploaded before? I'm sure I'd seen this before. And btw, when that explosion thing went off, tell me you didn't record someone going, "kerpow!" If not, then that was a seriously horrible sound effect.

Sorry, but the repetitiveness of the vid made me bolk.

It was....very unique!

As a suggestion - should you want to remaster this short, you may want to slighly vary the sound effect for the blaster in pitch, so it doesn't get quite so repititious.

Secondly, try out a few more angles to break up the scene and make a bit of sequence - this helps to create more interest rather than watching the same shot.

Peace~
