What can I say except this movie is extremely funny. I knew eventually someone would find a practical use for all those high-tech weapons. Your comic timing is excellent.

Finally someone who knows how to white balance their video properly it really does make a difference in how professional the movie looks. The nature background audio with the birds chirping really sets the mood.

When you did the close-up shot with the upward looking angle of the light Sabre in the garage, it really drives home the menacing and intimidating aspect of these weapons.

Good choice using the wide-angle shot for the tree trimming scene it clearly demonstrates the point no job is to big or two small for this weapon. Also the forward looking camera perspective of the Caterpillar extermination scene, I believe was the best choice because it shows all three important elements, the vegetables, You and of course the Blaster.

Great Job

Lou

It's funny how all the others thought it was funny. I didn't think it was very funny. Yes you would laugh in the inside, but you could put som extra smoke effects in when you shoot your garden. Those blasters are hot, you know. But nice work unsure

As stated before by several people, it is funny and a great clash of 'reality meeting out-of-this-world' but it could of been made a lot better and generally imporved quality wise.

For a quick idea and something quickly to come from it such as this, i would give you a gold medal if i had one! For a quick idea and something deeper to come from it, would be a bronze i'm afraid.

A whisp of smoke here and there, scorch marks maybe, and this would get you my 5 stars for a short comical.

But 4 is still a great score me Congrats!

That was pretty funny. biggrin
Hmmm.....I guess since your hand moved the leaves out of the way, and you are shooting catepillars, I guess there wouldn't be much smoke from a catepillar.
Overall, I say, good job!

Okay, just took a second look....
My first movie submission was denied because I had no 'fx home' credit.

Good point. I've been scared that my movie will be denied because I've been having problems downloading the video of the credits that has FX home on it. Can you make your own credit or dose it have to be one of these? I just thought of something though. Do you have Vision Lab? Because I don't think you have to put them in the credits if you use vision lab. Good movie BTW.

It doesn't have to be the credit movies, you can just put it in the normal credits. You can even just flash the words "Made with Fxhome software" for 2 frames, ala Aculag.

It was great effects, and made you chuckle a bit on your inside (kind of like you said) but it didnt really make you laugh out loud. But dont get me wrong i really liked the movie. 4/5 stars for me, and id like to say all of your movies are great.

It was very funny. The technical aspects were pretty weak; especially the special effects, the cinematography wasn't anything special either, and the sound effects were also not too great.

For the most part it wasn't made great but it was quite funny so I give it 2/5.

Even if using Vision Lab, I think you still have to register your product to participate in the forums and what not...Not 100% sure, but I thought that's what I read or saw in the welcome vids/tuts.

Don't misunderstand me, I'm not trying to give anyone a hard time or start a ruccus, I was just curious on how he 'snuck by'.

hes been here for a long long time, over 4 years and has submitted films in the past, so I don't think he snuck by, he's been around for awhile, and the movie was hilarious by the way, as is all of your work.

Dude, that's hilarious! Love the accent, and the overall simplicity of it. Great editing, especially the pruning scene. How did you do that? Anyway, that was awesome. Very professionally made.

That was brilliant, simple, straight up and very British biggrin.

Nice solid filming techniques which were effective.
