you proved you could do muzzle flashes with your clone stuff...

This was nothing really new to you, except you were actually lazier in this than you have been before.. I.E. you didnt actually finish all the effects, you have a guy 27 seconds in, who doesnt really appear to get shot, he just seems to fall over smile

And then you admit that you got bored anf filmed some poor epileptic when you should have really been phoning him an ambulance...

Okay, youve proved you can do muzzle flashes, now prove you can do STORY.

I agree totally with pboniface except I would like to add something.

I must say, you used that Slow-mo muzzle flash VERY well. I was happy with it, smile

Good Movie. 2 out of 5 from me.

And as everybody says, the next time you do a movie, sit down and write a script for it first. I'm currently doing that myself.

Oh, and one more thing, you can't really see that it says The Gammagun Master in the beginning.

And what is a gammagun?

That was a quite good movie, I'll give it 2/5.

here's some tips (suggestions):
I thought that it got TO noisy when the techno music started playing at the same time as everybody was shooting so maybe another music next time??

Maybe you should start writing scripts before you start to film, I'm writing one right now.

And I didn't really get the "Bonus".

Otherwise, good movie

For the first, it wasn't techno music, and for the other the music couldn't get any lower! I tried Audio Gain 20 but still high! biggrin

For secound, this was just a test movie, I'm writing a script for The Crypt of the Dead right now! smile

WOW!! What a bonus! I was thinking through the WHOLE MOVIE... "Please don't let this end!" But then it did and I was all sad but then I saw "BONUS" And got to see a whole 3 SECONDS more footage of a guy falling down. Amazing.

you should see what you can do about trimming the fat off of your signature picture. there's a ton of dead space above and below the words 'Strike Net Productions'.

streamlining it will make it look much slicker.

See, malone has a n00bie signature killer that cuts off your picture at a certain amount of lines there. It cuts yours off right after the letters, when your full picture is actually almost twice as tall. Just make it smaller like Iceman said.

Thanks! smile But the thing I hate with that shot was that the machinegun has a red spot at the front! Easy to notice! sad

I like the part where the kid was shooting in front of the camera and moving towards the camera. Nice effect with the flashing and smoke. You are pretty good with accomplishing precision effects. I can tell you spend sufficient time with editing the effects. Nice effects.

A few ideas.

1. please please please dont put exclamation marks after every sentence. its incredibly annoying.

2. Strike-net sounds like a bad 80's commando movie. just a thought.

3. the random uses of "LOL" makes me wonder if your 5, or pehaps 6.

4. the effects were alright for your being 5.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR NEXT EFFECTS TEST!!!!!! LOL biggrin
