This is a little trailer for Star Wars: Planet of the Clones. It was filmed in January of 2003. I wanted the film to have some part on this website, but the full version will never be released to the public, as it is a horribly corny movie. But I think this trailer turned out pretty cool.

I have grown much as a person and filmmaker since then, so do not judge my talent and abilities on this trailer (unless it is in a good way. smile) I edited the trailer recently.

Hmm, the 3D was great, but the editing leaves to be desired, since you cut way too fast.

3/5 because it's decent

The animation was well composed on several accounts. There were a few brief moments when the X-wing and Snow Speeder stopped or moved away very abruptly. Otherwise it was a great 3D job. I appreaciated that it was integrated well. These scenes will be sweet with sound.

I would suggest a bit more color accentation or grading, as a lot of the footage seems monotone. This causes the effects to be visually unacceptable, only because of the stark color different. Try toning them down just a bit, perhaps adding the elements of color used in your footage so they connect which each other.

This idea is bright for a short film and I look forward to seeing the end result. Good stuff~

That CG was pretty sweet lookin', But not alot else was too great. Partially due to the fact that there were only a couple 7 year olds playing the lead roles, and awkward editing. Music was pretty cool though.

In every 3D-software..! Here's a short list of some of them:
- Maya
- 3D Studio Max
- Cinema 4D
- Lightwave
- TrueSpace
- Blender (free)
- XSI

And that's all I can think of at the moment..!

thanks! but modeling its a complicated thing and requier's a lot of learning - can I use 3d plugins of alamDV2 to render in maya (for exmp) or do i have to model them on my own ?
one more thing - in the movie there is a slow-motion scene , how can I do that?? (with a standart video camera of course! )
thanks!!

One of the kids was 9 years old, and the rest of us were 12/13 at the time. We had fun though, and back then, that's what counted.

Thanks for the editing tips, this will improve further trailers and similar things. I cut way too short a lot of times. unsure

The 3d was done by Billy3D in 3DS Max, he also did that when he was about 14-years-old, he's now about 16. That kid's crazy good, wish I could see his new stuff.

Again, no one will see the end result. I just wanted to get some of that old footage on the web somehow, so I put together a little trailer.

Music was Lacrimosa (it was used in Spiderman 2 trailer I think, maybe they made it for that...) then the opening music was "the Forbidden Pool" from Howard Shore's score in The Lord of the Rings.

EDIT: Nevermind, song one was JW from the SWEP3 soundtrack.

Thanks for the comments.

PS-When I said don't judge me by this trailer, I did not mean score me higher, I meant the footage was shot 3 years ago and I have improved a lot as a filmmaker. Some people (at least 1) thought I was asking for a higher score out of 5 in the cinema. I was reffering to my current abilities.

What?! The first music track is "Howard Shore - The forbidden Pool"??? I recognised that music from "John Williams - Star Wars Episode III - Main title".... Somebody might have pulled your leg. wink Again, cool trailer! Fun to edit old footage, isn't it? biggrin

The model and 3d work in this trailer was great! The actors were young but seemed to do the job well.

Again, the ships really seemed to be in the scene with the actors, well done.

Music was good, could use some added title work tho.
