NightCast is a full feature length swiss independent B-Movie, the first of it's kind. Produced without any financial support over the course of 4 years. It's a trashy superhero homage to 90s B-Movies. Hope you enjoy!

This is the complete film in it's english dubbed version with a short introduction by the director, me. smile


Thanks to all the fxhomers who were part of this project:

Hybrid-Halo (actor and 3D artist)
Er-No (actor and voiceactor dub)
Arktic (actor)
Schwar (matte artist)
Tarn (voiceactor dub)
Garrison (voiceactor dub)
GreyBro (voiceactor dub)
Redhawksrymmer (voiceactor dub)
Fallen (voiceactor dub)

This is so worth to see again just to spot Redhawks swedish accent!

Nice to see you've decided to put it online for the FXhome crowd, applauds for that!

I'm not sure if it’s just the flv version (or my computer), but the dubbing seems off slightly. I would have to say the German version with subtitles is far better, lots more emotion in the actors own voices.

I would definitely advise getting the DVD, the making of featurettes are very informative and well worth the money.

It was really great. Everything was better than I could have expected. Except for the duel at the end. It seemed just a bit, bored? There was a lot of grunting and groaning, but no howls of hatred like you would expect from two arch-enemies, and the fighting was a bit slow. Also, I think the mature themes should have given it a higher rating. For this last reason, I'm giving it a 4/5. Otherwise, 5/5.

Heh, glad you enjoy it.

Yeah, getting the dub was an incredibly difficult task. Most voiceactors did their voices over the internet and obviously, dubs will never match with the lips - hence I'd always go with the original language version of any film myself. But I thought, why not add the dub so the younger audience wouldn't have to watch a film through with subtitles.
(on the DVD you will find the german original version with english subtitles)

Because the younger (pre-adolescent) brain is less developed to handle the multi-task of reading and still being able to cohesively watch what is going on, simultaneously.

And Marco, I'm still loading this, when it's done I'll absolutely give it a watch and get back to you!

That was actually one of the 3D computer generated doubles (in Cinema 4D).

What I meant was, younger people might not read as quickly or experienced, hence I figured I put the dub online. No insult intended. smile

Btw, I'm not responsible for the rating. The film was rated that in it's DVD release by the SUISA, the offical rater and I just copied it. I find it amusing the rating affects a vote on the film. Not that I mind, I just had to smile. smile

I can barely remember doing the dub work on this. I haven't had time to watch this version yet, but I'm cringing in anticipation of my voice appearing. I hope it isn't too incongruous. smile

Great to see this movie online for all to see - and hopefully it'll spur some people to buy the DVD. As Marco says in his introduction, the DVD has utterly AWESOME extra features, and is a great learning opportunity for upcoming filmmakers.

Most of the explosions are real, practical effects filmed live on set using a gas mechanism. A few of them were digitally enhanced with our stock pack and a few were just digital.

You can get the explosion stock pack here: http://www.nccinema.ch


If you're doing digital only explosions, you'll have to carefully plan out your shot in order for the compositing to work.

There is just one thing I find a bit objectionable about this film; there are no heroes. I don't mean it in the fairy-tale, big speech sense, but in the Matthew Stover-ish, LOTR sense. It's so dark that there's really no relief, which may sound a bit babyish, but I think every story needs to let up once in a while. Sometimes there needs to be a sense of triumph and achievement. I didn't see that in here. NightCast beat Jack and then walked away, head down. Basically, it just wasn't a very memorable film, though the battles and effects were really well worked out. The plot needed some work; not really complex enough.

Good job, anyway.

there are no heroes.
Yeah, that was completely intentional. NightCast is petty much an anti-hero himself and only really becomes a "hero" somewhat at the end of the film. The constant dark tone was deliberate to enforce on that. It's what I wanted to make, but I can see how that might not appeal to everyone.

The plot needed some work.
Heh, no argument about that. The script is rather weak and we all knew this. We had such a huge stress in preproduction and only had this one time window to shoot the film that we had to prepare what needed to be prepared and ultimately, we ended up having to shoot the very first draft of the script. Annoying, but that's life sometimes. smile

I've only watched the first few minutes of your "Nightcast" and then I switched it off.
It borders on criminal to watch this on a PC so I intend to buy this on DVD and enjoy it in my home cinema.
I was blown away by your skillful approach to this movie with some outstanding camera work and lighting, in fact it oozes professionalism from frame one.
Suffice to say, it takes a hell of a lot to get me to part with money
without a nervous breakdown biggrin
I'm really looking forward to watching this on the big screen.

Well done to you all at NCCinema....I'm sure you are all proud of this movie.

The movie was really good. The only thing that I noticed was that when somebody got shot you had a spark effect where the bullet hit. Other than that it was cool.

My thoughts too. I watched about half an hour and thought I really need to see this on DVD. Also I'm not keen on watching dubbed stuff, so I've ordered the 'proper' version.

I'm really glad this is out on the internet.

I had such a good time in Switzerland those couple of weeks we helped out. A really great time which to me - summarized why I enjoy being part of FXhome.

Nightcast is a fun B-Movie with some stellar Indie film-making Marco. If there's one flaw it's the films ambitiousness and it's crazy that it's pulled off even in pieces. Love it. Hooah.

The DVD is well worth for price just for a look into the mad mind of Marco von Moos. If more indie film makers had Marco's approach then the world would quite frankly, be full of impressive movies.

Regards,
Matt

It took me a day to learn the basics. The software is so easy to learn, I picked it right up. But all the more advanced stuff; like learning how to do some professional masking or something, that would probably take a while.

Thanks for all the kind words Hybrid! It was such great fun meeting you guys in person and that alone was worth it all. biggrin

And I'd agree with the sentiments about fxhome software being easy to learn. It's not the usage of software itself that's the problem, it's the creativity and flexibility in using it that gets you places or doesn't.


PS: Captain Amazingly Incredible - I'd very much appreciate your input as to why you thought this deserved the lowest rating, if you'd be so kind. Not that I wouldn't know it's got flaws, many of them, but I'm curious and find it a shame mostly the 0 and 1 star votes go without comment, seeing they'd probably have the most to say! smile

Marco,

I'll be posting a longer review later (probably) but just wanted to throw in the words that I saw this and really enjoyed it. It wasn't, particularly, my type of movie, but I got a very Darkman meets The Fly (Goldblum version) vibe, probably because of the 80's-esque lighting and staging. The effects were up to snuff, but I couldn't help but feel that about half of them were just there because you could do an effect, and not because they were necessary.

Even so, I really really enjoyed this, and it felt like I was watching a made-for-television movie (whether that's good or bad in your book, I dunno). The soundtrack and sound design, too, were major positives; although the dub makes timing and inflection of some of the lines (and therein the sound design) sound a bit strange.

Still, great stuff! I'm giving it a 4/5 because it's not quite what I was expecting (it was slightly worse, no offense) and because some bits were flawed (likely the kind of 'oh no, we can't go back and fix that!' kind of stuff, so no worries biggrin). That being said, however, there's clearly time, resources, effort and skill involved in creating this, and that cannot go unnoticed.

4/5

Well, where to begin, I finally got to watch this. I am very impressed with everything, My friends and I are writing 3 scripts that are comparable to the task that you completed and this is a major motivator for me. Even though it was dubbed, it still came out excellent.

I hope to see more from you later.

Sorry I didn't review this earlier, but I was not a member then. Your film and the Indiana Jones were both of the early works I looked at when considering to purchase FXhome effects. They sold me. I know that I cannot add to the praise you have already received on a near perfect production. Acting, lighting, sets, effects, story- all top notch. When I had stated earlier that FXhome had a great deal of talented film makers it was said with you in mind. Five stars easily.

Thank you very much for the kind comments! It's great to hear that some people enjoy the film!

Just saw I missed a lot of comments. Funny that "Darkman" was mentioned, as that was indeed one of the key influences on the film. This 80s / 90s B-Movie feel was what we were going for with this specific production. The fact we had to shoot it with little to no money only seemed to enhance that, even even led to some deep flaws we were not able to correct. But ah well. smile

Thanks everyone for watching

Hey I was looking forward to seeing this before I was even a member so it was great to finally get to watch it. It was great, I liked it. Kept me interested all the way through. 4.5/5 based on what kind of movie it was. Some of the effects were very believable. I would never know the shot of nightcast jumping through the window was all CG. Some of the harder shots looked fake, but I really didn't mind them that much. The thing that most bothered me was the blood hits. I don't think any of it was necessary; specially since it came out pink. It's a common thing for independent films to always have some cheesy gory blood effect and it almost never works out good.

Can't really comment on the acting since it was dubbed, but I don't think the dubbed version was bad. So good job to everyone involved. Glad this is finally online for free smile Though I would've liked it more 2 years ago, I still think it's pretty cool stuff

This is the wrong thread to post your query really. I'd recommend you open a new thread in the general chat.

But generally, the FXhome software is a good idea if you need to create good special effects on a budget.

I did use some blood stock effects. Not the Blood HD collection though. And the fact that the blood ended up being pink was indeed unfortunate and had more to do what bad compositing and grading rather then the footage itself. smile

Agreed.
The blood stock footage itself is actually really good, I've used it myself several times. The only thing was that it needed a bit more care in the compositing department in the film Nightcast. Oh and by the way... this is one of my all time favorite user made films.

So don't base your decision on whether or not to purchase the blood dvd because there was a little mishap in a movie. The dvd is indeed worth it and as many people have stated in the forums... you can never have enough stock footage.

Hehe, awesome. I made it sound way more spectacular then it is really. It's mainly just the macintosh standard "bing" sound. redface

Still cool man.
I also have Apone saying "Aaaaargh absolutely bad-asses" for instant messages.
It was cool at first but gets annoying after a while.
Sorry to be off topic.

I used to have a random monster noise .WAV from the game Morrowind as my 'new mail' noise. Then, one day while playing the game, I actually encountered the monster in a cave. I immediately paused the game and alt-tabbed to go check my email, before realising what had happened.

True story.

Wow...um talk about compulsive email checking... smile
You're probably not as bad as me though. Since I attend a Cyber school it's not un-common for me to be on 3-5 hours a day. And with bookmarks and tabs + high speed internet, it takes maybe 5 seconds to check for new posts. I've probably been guilty of checking 100 or some times a day more than once...
