Personally, Im getting bored of Star Wars fan films, with badly done Rotoscoping and cheesey dialog,

And Test films! I know what Fxhome Softwares can do and i dont think there are any new ways on presenting them to us here. Now Im only taking about the 30 second max clips with no pint to themselfs other then just to see what the softwares like and how good you can use it. But i enjoy nthe short test films where a good amount of effort has gone into it and some time has been used to make th film look decent.

What's wrong with that? I really don't care I just like to see that someone tried. It's always good to see films that you can sense the person who made them had a good time with it. Besides, making a "perfect" fanfilm would take as long to make as a Star Wars movie itself. You literally need a warehouse that is completely green inside, a good 3D modeler, a good camera, and alot of actors. If you have all of those items, then lucky you. I sure as hell don't. It's like your comparing Duality with a movie I could make at home. It's completely diferent. When you see "bad" Star Wars fanfilms it's people using what they have.

Well, I'll keep in mind, next time I make a test it'll be 31 seconds long. You don't think there are any new ways of presenting the software? Well, then you must not have too big of an imagination. There is so much that hasn't been done when it comes to how you use FXhome software. Besides, saying you don't want to see test clips is killing the whole reason of the FXhome community. It's a place to share your work, get opinions, and improve until you get really good. What, you think Sollthar just grabbed a camera and made the things he's done now? No. He probably himself put test clips and asked for advice.

I call that a short movie. If you want a 5 minute long test clip why not just add a script to it?

I like comedy in the FXH cinema the most, because of people like Waser, Evman, Aculag, and others. Don't get me wrong, I like films from almost every other genre, but comedy seems to be my universal favorite here because of the talent and usually lack of the corny factor that I see in most attempted serious films here.

Oh, and I'd like to see some good horrors. The only horrors that have actually been pulled off well were Ghost and ssjaaron's one (forgot the name.)

Since we *had* to pick one, I went with comedy, but I find I'm capable of enjoying most anything if it's well done or at least some effort went into it. I'm not a big enough Star Wars fan (not that I didn't enjoy the films for the most part) to go making fan films, but I have no problem watching fan films from the real diehard fans.

Personally I'd like to see more action films being made and presented here, but I know those are some of the hardest to pull off with no or low budget constraints.

I also think plain old "drama" should have been included as one of the choices.

Test films? I have no problem seeing what others are up to and hopefully stretching the limits of what the Fxhome family of products can do when an active imagination is unleashed on them.

My next project is an action film of sorts, but not the die hard kind of thing. But I guess I went with comedy in the end because I was thinking of Lucky Strike. biggrin

I agree, Light sabers aren't that cool anymore. Everybody can do them. Take the FXhome software and use it to tell a story not just to show you can do lightsabers.

I'd like to see proper attempts at filmmaking, no matter the genre. Frankly, I don't care what genre it is, but so little people actually make a proper film... you know, with a real plot, real characters, real effort...

Not the usual "Hey me and my friend done that in 2 hours and edited it this afternoon" stuff, but things like Between the lines, Lucky Strike, A feast of friends, Amnesia etc... PROPER FILMS that actually tell something worth telling and are story driven. (and no, random A has to kill random B because of random C is not really a story)

I consider about 99% of what we have in the cinema "clips". While clips are cool, I'd personally like to see more proper "films".



So to me, the genre is not the answer to the original question.

You're missing "Drama" in the poll, one of the three genres Shakespeare produced, and certainly one of the most important.

I'd pick drama if it were up there.

Almost all of the above are "dramas".

I suppose you mean the "tragedy", Ben.

Why'd I say drama?

Yeah, I meant tragedy.

Comedy, tragedy, history, right?

Ok, so I admit I was abit harsh with my topic, and I was abit blunt about my analyses. My Apologies. I was in a sour mood while posting.

What Im trying to say is I like to watch people work and give feedback, but Im alittle tired of seeing the same old thing. I want to see peoples work dont get me wrong, just I like abit of variety.

Again, My bad, My apologies.

Well I'm hoping to put 3 movies in the cinema by December. I have been an fxhome member for awhile now and still yet to contribute something to the cinema as a finished product. Expect a ww2 movie, a short comedy and...... the other is a secret wink But it'll be put forward in Novemebr this year. I think there are a few real gems in the cinema, while I don't mind the test clips and star wars fan films (I do tend to skip past them) it's nice to see a varitey. I would like to see more horror films too, and that's something I have planned later for next year smile For me I'm putting sci-fi, simply because i love the creativity involved. The bar is constantly rising and I expect to see some amazing movies come the end of the year.

Good action's probably the hardest to make, and (I think) the best.

Nobody wants to see Romance?
That's too bad, 1/4 (or something like that, i dunno, script's still not finnished crazy ) of Monkey Madness 2 (working title) is Romance. It also seems to be 1/4 non-hardcore-action, and 2/4 silly, stupid comedy.

I hope to be able to have it ready before christmas... I hope to have the guts and time to make it at all.

I think the cinima could use some good old fashion George Romero style zombie films. They're fun to watch, and just as much fun to make imo, and they aren't overy difficult to pull off.

But as far as movies that I'd like to see, I would like to see some dramas where people concentrate more on character development, and inner conflicts, while at the same time dealing with blatantly obvious conflicts. I like it when story are more complex and they showcase more then just whats apparant on the surface. Although usually the more shallow films are more fun to watch, but its the ones with depth that make you think and wonder a little bit, which is something I also like to do.
