Follow the acton packed adventure of two unsuspecting characters, as they fight for their lives against evil robots.

This movie was filmed on location in Canada. It took about 4 days to film and several hours for editing and special effects.

This was originally done for a High School Video contest; however the video was never seen, as the contest was cancelled. We hope you enjoy it.

It was pretty funny and quite cheesy. I like cheese. For the people disappearing, it would have been best to use a tripod for that scence, because after the people cross dissovled you could see the camera shaking. But with technicalities aside, it was an overall good movie. A 3/5 from me as well.

ha ha, this was halarious. increadibly entretaining. I loved it. i would actually like to know how u did some of the effects, what programs u used, etc. Like, how exactly did you go about the knife throwing part? The production im currently involved in calls for a couple knife throws, and ninja stars. So ya, wondering how you did that from when it leaves his hand, to when it lands in the other person, or in ur case, the robot. but ya. Great film. 4/5

The knife throw is a simple little trick involving two knifes.One knife is already stuck in character(who is off screen), when the other is throw by the killer in the victim's direction(but doesnt hit him at all), the camera moves with the knife throw to reveal a knife in the victim.

P.S. please remember to submit your rating for the movie (using the number of stars).

Thanks,

No need for sarcasm...For the effects, the software was actually AlamDV2.
The lasers take a lot of patience and time, but the final result is quite amazing.

Haha, that was a great movie. I haven't seen anyone pull off that knife trick as good as you all did, very nice. Nice job with the robots and their makeup...etc.

It was fun to watch, it was entertaining, and that's what I rate off of. 4/5. Nice job.

j man,
The laser gun trick is simply done by the reversing the clip of the robot gently tossing it to the side...we were pleased with the effect.
