After watching tons of 24 I had to try making a firefight myself. This is my great attempt. Please give helpful feedback.

that was, um, interesting. egad. the only thing i liked about it was that it showed effectslab's ablility to generate cool special effects.

The effects were very well done. Dang! It reminded me of all of the stuff you had going on in Destruction. This was much better though in terms of effects usage. I have a soft spot for any film where kids are the stars, so I'll give it a 3.

I must say, I think that the kids' acting has improved, but maybe I'm biased. (See Toothache @ http://www.phmovies.net/Movies%20Files/Toothache.wmv

The special effects were really good, might I ask where you got your stock footage?

That was.................not good. The only part I really enjoyed was the part at the end, with the sparks falling and stuff. I think the work that needs to be done is realism. You can get good gun props at the dollar store. It just didn't seem much time on it.

Thanks for all the replies everyone!
The explosions and falling debris were from Detonation films. I'm not sure where I got the spark stock footage. I didn't pay anything for it and I'm pretty sure it's not copywrited so I'm putting it on my server. Please tell me if I shouldn't do that. Here's a link:http://www.phmovies.net/Stock/
I was really just aiming to have fun and try making cool effects. As with all my movies (and apparently much to many fxhomers' dismay) I pretty much use what's lying around for props and stuff.

ah, that makes sense; but if you're aiming for realism you'll want some better guns.
. I didn't really like the movie that much, however the FX were great.

I think it's cute props considering the age of these talented actors!

actually, you can't really tell, there wasn't really any acting.

Directing kids can be difficult just because they have no idea what you want sometimes. They are good actors when I really try to direct them well. I think the shots of the boy shooting around the corner were acted out well because I spent several takes on that part. The rest of the time I didn't really push for good acting so I got very basic results.

i guess that's true. i'm guessing the best way to direct kids in this sort of movie is to basically say, 'why don't you play guns' and film them.
