This is a scene from our upcoming movie called V3. The scene is called Possible Evinco. It's about a small group of soldiers making their last stand against a large group of terrorists.

Acceptable.... i think you did a good job!! Too bad that the quality is not the same through the whole video!!!!! I love the sound effects, specially the passing bullets, wich make a whistle noise.....btw where do you get them, i cant find that sound nowhere?!?!

Agree with CryisisFX, those sounds are hard to find, upload perhaps?

Anyways, that was okay, the effects were satisfying, but one thing. There was a large point being made on the fact that the enemy was powerful, yet there was only 4 men. I understand that there was probably cast limiting, but you could have at least cloned them once, or given them packs to support the claim that they were well stocked in ammo, etc.

Just my opinion, be sure to upload the full film when you finish that!

Ah you are in luck, it took me a while to find that important sound effect =]. It would be selfish of me not to provide it. Here you go: http://mtzsmoores.webs.com/BulletBys.wav Tell me if it works. And yes there was a major cast limiting. We're shooting some more scenes tomorrow and the plot has gotten much bigger and better. There also isnt as much of a cast shortage. You WILL like the movie 100X better than this scene.

No one said you have to use actors your age, if its possible you can use older people too. and usually you don't want kids acting like adults. that might lead to a bad film. but its a good idea to use your freinds tho, its usually fun and easy that way.

And also your parents could probably help to, so think about your weaknesses and stenghs and use them to your advantage. and i think there's some kids. i never heard of a neighborhood with only adults.

Rubbish, (I know im amercan but that is about the right word to use for this moment) alot of adults and professionals talk about filmmaking in Hollywood. And most kids at my school don't know alot about filmmaking. so i disagree with your friends.

Back on topic, generally i don't like the idea of "kid" terrorists. yes its possible for kids to get of hold of guns, if it fits in the story, but not kid terrorists, so i think its kinda cheesy.

But its a good job for what you have, but seriously think these things through though.

True, but do you really think I would be able to gather up a bunch of adults and that they would respect me as a director, being only 16? It would be too awkward and mostly likely would not happen.
But I am redoing and rewriting alot of the movie, and am using some older cast members or just older looking.

I have the same problem with most of my friends. All I did with a few is pretend to kill my clone, add effects, and put it up on facebook. Bam, three people want to do a movie.

Actually if you pay close attention in this movie, two people were cloned.

Just a question, did you use airsoft guns with just black flash hiders? Cause they actually look really convincing.
