Just a short film I made with my daughter and her friend... I used AlamDV a lot and Lightwave, and After Effects... The girls begged me to make a movie one day, and with one day, this is what you get wink LOL

This movie was pretty cheesy, but I enjoyed it. There's nothing wrong with cheesy sometimes. My daughter looks about the same age as the girls in the film, and it looks like something I'd film with her. I'll play your film for her and she'll get a kick out of it too.

errr.... no comment.

hahaha, no it was a reasonable movie, nice effects. Only the acting was a bit.... errr... bad. I don't know wich camera you have, but it don't records sound very well.

I want to vote 2.5 but you only can vot 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. So I pick 3 !

errr... LOL what do you expect from a couple of 8 year old girls LOL

and you're right, for this I didn't set up the mike or anything so the sound wasn't good... I have a zoom mic for the camera and a firewire preamp for my laptop with a condenser mic for for real projects smile this was a "quickie" smile

Thanks for the extra half a vote smile LOL but I don't expect this movie to win any awards LOL

Was quit fun, though it looked more like a test then a movie... hehe, I didn't expect much from a couple of 8 year old girls actually, but they were better then I thought.

But what was up with the big white wall? I think that's what ruined the movie.

But I guess your daughter had a great time makin and watching... Or?

Not bad for what you had available. I'm curious though, what did you use Lightwave for?

Ive got to face it, I wont be directing/editing the next Hollywood blockbuster, but your film is what I have these programs for, to have some fun and spark some creativity in my kids. What an excellent example of having fun with the kids this is!! The story was fun and the effects good, your audience will love it.
