I really liked this. Very personal, very honest - lots of great memories. Shame on me for missing the deadline of these videos, buh.

Looking forward to the next birthday!


Congrats fxhome

Nice, although I'm so sorry for my terrible on screen manner, I seem to be screaming and not breathing at all.

I'll work on it for the 20 year anniversary.

Great contributions by all. Very sincere and complimentary personalities to their FXHome personas.

Aculag, you were great comedy! Er-no, the mask was a nice touch.

Here's to 10 more years!

Maybe you could tell, but it was really hard for me as well. I decided to go with the "Dubbed Infomercial" approach, instead of the "emotional testimonial" approach. I guess I didn't get that memo. wink

It's different codes throughout. I've got an iPhone app that can read them. The QRs each have words attached to them. Together they make the phrase:

"The future will be action packed."

Hmmm...perhaps the days of FXhome's most dastardly clever teases is behind them? wink

Missed the mark as well in getting this video in, but as it stands, that probably helped the final product! biggrin Some great stories in there - and I know there's more in the making.

Cheers to another decade!

Thanks guys. smile

I've just returned home from tonight's 10th anniversary party, so for my professional reputation it's probably best that I keep this brief. razz

I'd like to say a special thanks to all of you for supporting us over the years. I know we say that a lot, but that's because we mean it. For the 20th anniversary, how about we fly all of you over for the party? wink

We've got some cool stuff coming up next week too, so keep an eye out. smile

Great stuff, guys, really endearing all around. A shame we weren't able to record a video - in all honesty, I loaned my lenses/tripod/H1 to a friend so he could complete a senior thesis and he neglected to give my stuff back to me for two weeks - so we were camera-less for a while! biggrin

On a different note, however, I suppose I can say in this thread what I would've said in the video. So here goes nothing! wink



FXHome has had an immeasurable effect on who I have become over the past eight years and what I've done with my life. When I first started browsing the site, I was only 12 years old (I'm now 21), and I watched films in the cinema here for a solid two years before joining and writing posts here in the forums. But it was during those two years, give or take, that I became captivated by the users here, the work they were producing, and the nature of the staff and the website itself.

My brother and I both had a shared interest in filmmaking (although we hadn't quite worked out what we wanted to do yet) and FXHome offered a solid foundation of sample work upon which we could gain skills and know-how. We were both very young, all things considered, and didn't know of the forums, but the cinema on here opened up a whole new niche for us to explore - it gave us the ability to observe the efforts of other, exceedingly more talented independent filmmakers and derive production methods from these 'mid-range' productions (in terms of budget). There was, of course, no YouTube or Vimeo, and so FXHome held what was, to us, the Holy Grail of example footage: a sprawling catalog of material from teenage and college filmmakers especially (Twisted Studios, Cobra Productions) that impressed us to no end.

These films were things we studied meticulously and felt excited just to watch on a daily basis. I remember in middle school staying late afterwards in the computer lab just to get a peek at what I could download next from the weekly 'Top 10'. By the time we were 14, we'd gotten more formative into filmmaking and had acquired access to camera equipment and the FXHome software which, to us, was phenomenal. With the software, too, came the unlikely discovery of the forums; which provided yet another goldmine of information. As highschool started up for us in Fall 2004 we'd both posted hundreds of times across the forums and were slowly getting the lay of the land here.

FXHome staff (particularly Simon and Josh) and frequent users came to inspire us as we hit the one- and two-year marks on the forums as 'official members' of the website. Our Splinter Cell project in 2005 was a breakthrough in lighting and cinematography (owed largely to conversations I had over AIM with Geraint (Arktic), Aaron (ssjaaron) and Conor (Serpent)), and in 2006 Cover's Story was yet another breakthrough in acting/direction for us. For the latter effort, we received a ton of support from users all over the place, and started getting emails from people just offering accolades and advice. Rudy Picardo, in particular, was a driving motivator in keeping us on track with our 'dreams' of filmmaking, and we continued to feel very inspired by other users on here. I'm only detailing these things to note how significant an effect they've really had on us, and what paradigm shifts happened in our filmmaking efforts that have caused an instrumental change in what we're pursuing in our lives.

I learned of 24- and 48-hour competitions from postings on this site - and such projects have thoroughly expanded the base of people I work with and my own personal film style. More importantly, however, is that friendships and rivalries on many levels, (and subsequent mutual exchanges of information) were gained. In highschool, I spoke to John (ssjohn) and Aaron (ssjaaron) at length about religion, Christianity and contemporary Mormonism. I learned a lot, and I remember these conversations to this day. My friend Chase and I both received the Book of Mormon in the mail from Aaron, read it through broadly over a weekend, and subsequently discussed the material - both on the forums (in limited words) and over AIM/email with Aaron. It's been a while (4/5 years) since this happened, and I haven't spoken to Aaron in a long time, but this is yet again something that gave me insight into yet another part of my life - religion. Being able to speak to a peer (both in age/spirituality/filmmaking) about different sects of religion was both enlivening and refreshing; it it was undeniably, if not partially contributive to how I shaped my views on the world.

Conversely, the community here let me also speak to agnostics and atheists who spoke to me with candor and respect, even in spite of my young age (I was around 15 or so). This taught me much about those respective disciplines of thought, and gave me credence to better indulge in studying such philosophies at greater length, which I've continued into college with my existential research of.

Then there are the part-time rivals, part time friends on here who I 'grew up in filmmaking' with over several years (Evman and Serpent, to name a few) that helped me to 'keep myself in check' in both my conduct in the forums and in my creative development as a filmmaker. If anything, FXHome has offered a springboard for creativity and ideas upon which I can discuss objectives with both peers and professionals; and perhaps help others out along the way.

Then there's the fact that FXHome happens to be a company, which, in spite of any monetary agenda; is so gregarious in its resources and distribution of information. Something great, truly great has been created here and it is widely and happily handed out to people who are curious enough to take hold of it.

To say that FXHome has affected me positively would be an understatement. It has helped to shape who I am, who I'm going to be, and what I'm doing. I have pursued filmmaking in college and attended the college that I'm at presently partly because of the advice and encouragement given here. Were it not for the support of the people at this website, my brother and I likely would've given up our 'hobby' back in middle school. That's the truth, really. But our ideas and plans have evolved so much since then, and I am proud, damn proud actually to attribute a large part of that to the people here.

I know I got a bit reminiscent beyond users that have signed up here after I have, but those who know what/whom I'm referencing will understand. My accolades are not contained to FXhome as a community, but FXhome as a company as well. Never before have I seen an enterprise so willing to indulge the interests of others - be it through competitions, giveaways, creative work, or the like - there's always something special going on here.

The layout and people may have changed a bit over the years, but the principles of FXHome stay the same: there's an eclectic exchange of information, advice and opinion that manifests itself in written word and captured film, and it serves to positively affect the audience for which it's intended. And that's all I think we all really need.

Great video(s) guys. I think this is a really nice way of showing what has been achieved over the last ten years - and also how many people have been affected by it.

I've been around for about one year now - so I hope you will be there for the next 10 wink

Hey guys,

Really great video, nice to hear other people's thoughts about ten years of FXhome. Ten years that have gone very very fast!

Sorry I couldn't make it to Norwich yesterday, I was on set til gone 7pm and after 13 hours I didn't feel up to the 3 hour drive and then 3 hour drive home... also, I think I missed my five month old daughter too much this week not to get home and see her smile

Will see you very soon smile Thanks for everything over the years, but most of all, thanks for the electric tiger cat thing schwar, and you Tarn, we'll always have the jeep moment.

Hey everyone!

Thank you for the videos and the messages of support here and on Facebook - honestly it has made me rather emotional and I'm deeply touched.

As Toby said, I hate to think what we would be doing if it wasn't for the amazing support you've shown us over the last 10 years. This is the most important year for the FXhome - having the support of the community means a great deal to us all. Given the right website and software I don't think there is any limit to what we can do together

I can't wait for the next 10 years!

Thank you all so much!

I wanted to mention that some of the music in the user testimonials video was contributed by none other than Aculag himself, specifically the opening piece and the piece underscoring Aculag's piece. You'll be hearing some more of his work later this week.

He put the music together super fast for us and did a great job.

Something tells me Sollthar is about to get a lot of requests for his smokers pack. If anyone needs an extra example, there's one in my segment of the 10th anniversary video, toward the end, when the dude shoots at nothing. I'm not sure if it's Smoker_16, but it's one of them, and I have used the same one many, many times, because it's awesome.

Watched this a couple of days ago but forgot to comment. I thought it was a very beautiful and touching tribute to the last ten years of Fxhome, hopefully we'll be seeing more of these videos in the next few decades- maybe the next one will be by hologram!
I wanted to thanks the members featured in the video for putting the sentiments i feel about this company and community, into words i would never be able to find. whilst i haven't been here as long as most and i don't usually reply a lot my daily routine always includes a few visits here- missing it would be like missing out on breakfast! Also i'd like to thanks everbody that has contributed to the community over the years- their personal insights and knowledge they've gained through film making has inspired me, and i'm sure a lot of others, on a daily basis and i'm very grateful to be a part of a group with such a wealth of intelligence, experience and humour that makes this a living community rather than a internet forum. Many thanks and long may it continue. Thanks Fxhome biggrin

Heh, we've had a few requests come in via Twitter and YouTube so far.

We should have another (completely different) video going up tomorrow sometime......

Note the double ellipsis there folks. Lots of suspense.

So this is what that smoker_16 frame was about! Very nice, very funny - and hard to imagine, this didn't make it into the original cut wink
