British comedy at its best. A movie created by the Flashart Pictures team to show some of the old AlamDV effects. It might not have the most up to date effects but it sure is funny. Try to spot Schwar and Xcession as well.

What can I say?!?
This is the flick that sold me on the program that became a legend lol This will always be a favorite.

It was made back in ALARMDV's wink "GOLDEN AGE". It will always be a classic. Damn those FAP guys sure know how to make a flick biggrin

What can you say. It's a classic.

We hope to do some more work with Charlie (Bud) in the not to distant future. He is a real actor now at one of the better Acting Schools in London cool . I'm sure he'll lower himself to our level again sometime razz

Totally great pitch that film.

I orginally found the link here off the Force.net when I was trying to render/rotoscope a lightsaber in Photoshop- tutorials section I believe...... I watched the Chipowski and fetched my credit card after I picked my jaw up from the table 10 minutes later. The rest is history.......

I put my vote in for this, not because of the fx ( with alam we can all do them ) but for the idea, script and acting.

well i found it fun

Yup, along with the other guys that posted, this was the first or second film I ever saw. Great work with the effects, and there are some pretty brilliant moments razz

With all the "test" moives uploaded I'm glad I came across this little gem. Very funny, and not too long (which other films in this style tend to be) or too short (which would make it just another test). Bravo...I'd love to see more!

This is truly the best movie on alamdv thhat I have seen yet. It is one of the first movies that I saw here, and it sold me the program right away. The style is perfect, the special effects wonderfully used. I love this movie, it has truly brough alamdv to what it is right now. I saw it very long ago, but just a few minutes ago I realized that I had not yet rated it or sent a messagew in the forum. I gave it five stars, no question about it. The Great One is truly the best.

It's a classic... in fact, an updated version showcasing the newer effects will probably serve nicely as a 'trailer' for AlamDV2. Those participating in the competition might want to give it a go. smile

This is definately the funniest film I've seen yet on this website. My favorite part was the short saber daul (mainly the threat and the butt kicking).

to Serpent: www.parksabers.com has a wide selection of lightsabers and 2 guns(one of which looks somewhat like a stormtrooper rifle). Take the lamp out of the handle and replace it with a broom stick( or rake/shovel/hoe stick, whichever you call it) and you have an authentic lightsaber with a durable handle for the ultimate fight scene. Might cost you a lot though. Kind of expensive, but it looks better and is more durable than Hasbro lightsabers.

Another quite enjoyable film. The effects werent even that bad, due to how old they were. You guys should keep making more and more videos. The guns were pretty cool too, do you use AirSoft guns for filming purposes? Well another good film, Bravo!!!

4/5
