I got about 15 minutes into it. However about 2 or 3 time every minute it'd stop and pause for a couple of minutes. Then I accidentally clicked on something and it all went slow, all the colour became dodged and it just generally became fkd. However It was really good what I saw of it. I may have so see if I can download it over night sometime and watch it then. Impressive stuff none the less.

No, I fear it's only available as a Realfile, as no other codec I tested gave a file less than 300 MB with this quality...

You can try the new RealONE Player. It does work absolutely fine on my PC. Had no problems with it.

Because of what is happening with "seti", i would like to tell you that i downloaded your movie VERY quickly (took 25 minutes for the 2 parts !) I started to look at part 1 before part 2 was finished downloading, saw part 2 immediately after. Wrote the post immediately after. I saw it entirely ! just in case...

I can only stream it on my computer, I want to download it in one. But it always streams it no matter what. How can I just download it all? as my computer finds it difficult to stream the film making it near unwatchable. (It pauses every couple of seconds)

You could put this in a theater and it would pass as a hollywood film!

That was pretty cool... I didn't even know there was two parts! I watched the first part and then it stopped and I was like, WTF?! It was so long, how long did it take you guys to film?
Best part was when you stepped on that guys head... that was classic!
Have you considered doing a feature with the dude from The Test? That is still the best film!

Wow that was really cool.
Really profesional and amazing fx.
I was wondering, what did you use for the pyrotecnics (especially the smoke because that looked really good) but the explosions also looked as if they were real as well.

5 Stars and no doubt about it.

I like this film. Really profesional looking. Nice 3d work. I was impressed at the length of the film too. It's hard to make a film of this length.
Nice effects and bluescreening. Great work. Glad I finaly got to see the whole movie. Took absolutely AGES to download it on my 56k modem.
I hope that Taggart would get brutaly killed, but alas, he didn't. Oh well. Can't have everything I suppose.

The opening sequence alone was worth 5 stars biggrin I only had time to scan through the movie, but I really liked what I saw and heard (except for the over-compensated American accents lol Sorry, Sollthar!). The effects were top-notch; when I saw the huge heli-vehicle take off in the opening minutes of the movie, my jaw dropped to the floor: brilliant stuff!

Also liked the body-part "upgrading" scene (those eyes looked quite real: taxidermy eyes?), the pyrotechnics, the awesome soundtrack, and of course, the smoochies at the end of the movie (just kidding!) lol

Super cool, Marco!

Sollthar I just watched the first half and will watch the remainder in a while but from what I have seen this is THE BEST amateur film I have seen. Inspiring. I have a question though...Did George Lucas pay you money to borrow Taggart's personality for Jar Jar Binks?

Thanks for all the comments!
(I don't have to expect a comment on why you voted 3 stars on the film, nivak, right?) smile

Thanks Encheval. Turicon is much older than the test, as you may have read in the explanation. But I don't see any point in comparing a 4 hour work with a 4 year work and 90 second movie to a 90 minute movie anyways... smile

Rawree. The explosions looked real because they mostly were real. So is the smoke and the fire... smile

Venger: Yes. It was hard to do it. But it paid of. Turicon is still the highest awarded movie we have yet. smile

Thanks Moebius!!! I'm glad you like it! Hehe... I'm sorry about the accents... I can't help it... smile

Great er-no! I can't wait for it!!!

hi Sollthar,havent finished downloading movie yet but my comment is with Kamikaze comment regarding "the Test".My boys and i still think its the best and what you dont realize is that alot of people want you to do 'the test 3'..ect..BECAUSE the plot is unique,it makes people want to know what happened to him and what waiting for you this time.I hope your encouraged to keep the theme going.The acting was good and the story seem original and theres not alot of original themes running around out there.Keep up the great work and looking FINALLY forward to watching turrican from Down Under......cheers biggrin razz lol

I cannot describe how excellent that movie was. It was truly amazing to see! 5 stars!!! Anyway, I wanted to know if there are any tutorials on some of the special effects in turicon or instructions for the pyrotechnics.
Thanks

P.S. Sollthar, you are a with-out-a-doubt, a master in the craft of filmmaking. Keep the cool flick's coming!

Thank you very much ilykdp! There are a few of the effects explained in out tutorial section. No explanation on the pyrotechnics though, because I don't think this is something to put on the net as it is very dangerous to do. But if you want to know you can PM me any time.

Hey Anonoymous.
First, will most likely do more parts of "the test". But the test is nothing more than a funny little video I made because I had nothing else to do, at least to me. And IMHO it's nothing that I would even think about comparing to the "real" films I made.
But don't worry. I will do more parts of it! smile

I'm glad this spotlight has gone down really well - we expected Sollthar was a topic that would get people reading. I would like the wish Sollthar good luck with all of his current and future films, if we can be of any help we will be.

Tarn will be putting up a different spotlight every couple of weeks so if you can think of anyone who we should interview please let tarn know. He did a great job on this one but then again it was about Sollthar so it was bound to be great... biggrin

It took the first part all night to download but I watched it yesterday. I thought it was fantastic.

The violent special effects. Limbs and heads being removed. 5 stars for that.

The computer effects, fantastic 5 stars for them.

The locations were excellent. Good scouting. 5.

The acting wasn't great, however they're not proffessional actors so I think it'd be wrong to give the film less because of that, the important thing is they really went for it, I wish I had actors as game as that. Another 5.

There was so many aspects to that film that I could not possibly account for them all.

Thought the pscho killer was excellent. The Jar Jar Binks scientist was good. I thought the bit where he climbs over the conveyor belt thing was fantastic. The hero looked the part. Helped as well by a Schwarzenegger meets Van Damme accent.

That was great, every now and again I had to stop to remind myself, this was done with no proffessionals and no budget. Parts of it weren't brilliant and could have done with a few extra angles. Although for such a long film not having any bits like that is impossible.

Now I'm going to get on with downloading part 2.

I downloaded part 2 in record time. However I tried to move it back to watch the part about the dog again 'cos it was too good and the computer fkd up. So I had to start again. However after 16 minutes it fkd up for the second time. Therefore I'll have to watch it again hoping that it won't fk up when it gets to 16 minutes.

Hopefully the whole file isn't fkd, so I will be able to watch it past the 16 minute mark.

The thing is, that was excellent what I saw of it. The level of gore has been upped. The part when the cop says "battle cyborgs, fuckin' dangerous" was hilarious. So too was the part about the dog.

Incidentally where is the guy who plays "Sam" from?

Thought it was a good film biggrin . Thought the frontseat of a car as the cockpit of the space ship was a riot. As a long time sci-fi model maker, I enjoyed how you used parts from other ships. (I was almost expecting the lead character to push a button that said Turbo). Thought the overall look of the film was very good and some of the lines were a hoot. I gave you a 4. I would have given you a 5 but it was hard to watch it as a stream (kept stopping very two minutes to rebuffer and made the film hard to follow confused ). Real player is my least favorite of formats because of this. It would have been better in Quicktime or Win Media. Great job! Can't wait for your next film. biggrin

Don't you think that's a bit unfair. If the quality of the film was a 5, but you didn't give it that because of your computer. Surely they shouldn't loose points because of how you watched it.

Right just managed to watch the whole thing. Wham that was good, the shootout in the big industrial place with all the gravel was the best set piece of any amateur film (and many pro ones) I've ever seen. Fantastic. The way the police space ships looked like desert eagles. Nuff good lines, (I still find the "battle cyborgs!!!, fuckin' dangerous isn't he." line hilarious.) Good editing, photography, all aspects where spot on. Man I just loved that shootout as well.

For me that takes the place of the best Alam film I've ever seen. The stunts where around as good as that in "ADRENALINE" however the fact that there was actual characters in a plot made the stunts seem more spectacular.

I'm now pushing myself to improve "Sunset in a Beretta's Eye" even more. Well done that was great. 5 stars easy.

Maybe it did sound unfair. I apologize. You have to admit, from what I've read in this thread, it is a pain. I downloaded the file so I can see it without the problem the net gives getting in the way. I liked the film quite a bit. It had a lot of funny parts in it. As for my computer... it's a 2.4gig and works very good.

Well, scobby doo doo. er-no has seen the film.

*takes a deep breath*

First impression.

'Wow!'.

Superb, I preferred watching that all nicely streamed than halve the stuff that I watch on TV or in the cinema. Had a perfect script to what I like. Really neat in that aspect. Not many films get me questionning how a particular shot was filmed, this one did Sollthar, so pat yourself on the back and run around screaming, 'I am the best!'. You deserve it.

Favorite part was the cop station part, was very good in the fact it was that point in the movie I didn't realise I was watching something made by a few people. Thats what suprised me.

Sadly, there is something I didn't like. That was the construction of Sollthar, it seemed to stretch on a little too long.

The flames were cool, you spent how much money on this?

Legendary stuff, I want the DVD version without doubt if it was for sale I would buy it. I would buy two and its own DVD player.. well thats going too far but it gives you my perception on what I thought.

After a great get into it beginning, it kinda died off for a little and then in the second halve it was superb. Top notch.

You got balls. 5/5

Well bloody done.

I was lucky enough to have the great sollthar send me a tape of it ( thanks )

My first thoughts was a little confussed until i worked out what year it was set in.

the hardest thing with a long film ( even more so when it's as long as this ) is trying not to have too many bad bits ( i mean if it was short like the test, you can cram what you want in, without the worry of sound and plot )
so i take my hate off ( i think sollthar said some of the music was made by him on this )
I was watching this with my wife, and though ( she's going to hate watching a home made film for over an hour ) but i told her it's gonna be good.
i think the only thing that put her off was the swearing, ( that's a good thing as there's lots of things she don't like about mine )

I tried to keep an open mind and not sit there and think, ( graphics, sound, etc )
I enjoyed it the more i watched, it wasn't a case of watching it because i have to, i really did want to watch till the end.

for your first film the 3D is better than most films on here ( if only i could have done half as good as that )
I noticed you learned a lot of stuff from this and put it into your newer films.
sorry ( just noticed i'm waffling ) top marks, i will be watching it again saturday with my mate peter. lol

Thanks again for all the great comments again!

We used a Sony TRV5E to film and a Mac G4 to edit the film on Premiere.

Thank you very much! All your kindness is much appreciated and if I can ever return it by helping you in anything I may be of help, than you can just call me and count on me!

haha, yeah, bandwidth is awful. But luckily I don't have to pay for bandwidth on my server. It would ruin me right now... smile

LOL. I love the "Schwarzenegger against van Damme Accent". haha. I have to tell him this. lol... great! smile
Thank you very much for the compliments and I'm glad you like it!

I didn't use the computer to compose. I used my synthesizer directly. it's a Roland E-70

No need to apologize. Everyone can vote what he like and because of whatever he likes... smile
Thank you for the comment! I know the stream may not be working flawlessly when so many people download the film at the same time. There's nothing I can do about that. But I'm, glad you enjoyed the film!

er-no
Weee! Thank you very much for the cool review!
I agree, Sollthars construction is much too long. We just had so much fun working with our guest star in that scene... smile
The flames and explosions... they weren't even so expensive actually. The most expensive part was the Sollthar suit. We had to repair it almost after every single day of shooting with it smile

b4
I'm glad the tape finally made it to you! And I'm glad you enjoyed it and thank you very much for the comment!
Yes, the swearing... Most of it wasn't in the script... actually... smile
i didn't compose some of the music, I composed all of it. And honestly that was the most difficult part in the whole film for me... smile

hi everyone
hi sollthar

I won't vote for your film, for one particular reason.
You made a long film, very very long film. And all others are short films. So i think you can't fight in the same category. And the vote can't be the same.
biggrin The webmasters from alamdv should create a new vote system, whith more categories or so ! (if they heard me...) biggrin

But i did watch your movie, and first thing to say is "bravo", coz it's very hard to finish a movie, even a short one.
For what i understood from the story (i'm french), it looks like quite nice. Good ideas. Good actors. Good fight scenes. Great fx (the blood and some explosions). Great use of your car ! (lol) and i love a lot the multiplication of the guy whith his helmet head !
I dislike the 3d, coz i found it not very good. You should have put less 3d things. But i think i've read somewhere that it was your fisrt 3d tests, or something like that, so...

But once again, bravo !

Hi zouzanzi

Yeah. I know what you mean. I agree. Its a little difficult, not to say impossible, to compare Turicon with what else is in the cinema.
But as I'm not after votes but constructive comments I can live with that very good... smile

Thank you very much for watching and commenting and I'm very glad that you enjoyed it! smile

does anyone else think that the geeky ( sollthar ) guy in this film resembles ADAM Sandler

waterboy
happy gilmore.

anyone ?

(oh, one tiny winny thing, It would have helped with a boom mic )
a little quite in places, but as you know when you only have a few people helping it's hard to get someone to hold a mic.

this film goes into my fav no.1 spot.

I must say that I have never seen a more impressive amateur movie than yours. I watched adrenaline just before and I was hugely dissapointed. What a stupid clip. I kick you. No, I kick you. Your movie was really a movie, a really good movie. I can't wait to see what you guys are up to next.

The blood splats were done with a second person standing behind the one that was shot, used a little bottle filled with "blood" and just squeezed it that the blood splashes out smile

I finally finish watching it and I can say it's the most professional movie on this site. razz Sure there is some point that could be better but there is so must good points that you forgot the other points biggrin


5 Stars! without a doubt razz
Bob Page

EDIT : One of the point that could be better : Your "Sollthar" is wearing old ski boots. This is a cool idea BUT you didn't attach them lol Everytime I saw Sollthar walking with old ski boots not attached it remained me : When I go skiing, there is always that guy who never ski of his life and doesn't know how to attach his boots lol He walked like a idiot lol

And the end, I will have prefer Sollthar as the winner twisted

great movie, sollthar! 5 stars from me.

hehe, it looked like fabian was in terrible pain whenever he was in the turicon fighting suit, he never really ran anywhere, and when he tried to do more than walk, his jogging looked like he had horrible blisters on his feet or something. those ski boots for the turicon costume must have hurt something awful!

were those mini m16's airsoft guns? they look like some airsoft guns I've seen around. . .

First of all filmcritic0 f*ck off from this community and don't come back until u learn some maturity. Fine if u don't like the film but there are ways to criticse it without being a complete idiot who appears to me to be someone who is jealous of this film, probably coz u can't even turn ur camera on.

This is by far the best film on the alam cinema but thats not taking anything away from the work of others here, its just this fim is in a different league.

It would probably be easy to pick holes in this film and i could say why this film isn't as good as stuff i see on tele or in the cinema but i don't think thats the point. I think sollthar will argree with me that this film would have been better with more money, etc. Though the physical effects lloked more than professional to me.

having shot 10 minute films on my own the amount of respect i have for the people involved in bringing this film to the fore is astronimical. Just by watching the film u can see the determination, effort and enjoyment that was put into the production and to actually finish it is impressive in its own right hell i bet it would have been easy to juts say stuff this lets turn it into a short film.

I wont list good points/bad points because its all been said before me. All i want to say is good work and i can see u have a great future by creating this quality work within the low-low budget limitations.

This makes me want to see face2face right now.

good work,

P.S Marco do u visit sperm banks a lot because there seems to be many re-incarnations of u in the future biggrin

Hey Sollthar,

I just saw the final trailer of Face 2 Face and Im highly anticipating it's release.

Now, how do i get or reserve a copy? I wanted to know if it will be able to be sent all the way to The U.S.

Also, was Fabian Ramseyer in the trailer? or will he be in the film at all?

Thanks again! biggrin

P.S. maybe im obsessed, but ive found a teensy error in turicon... when Bren and the "scientific moron" go back in time, Bren says there are no lasers or torpedos, BUT when they find Sam he has a laser blaster that he fights the battlecyborgs with...

Just ignore that last comment... it's obvious that i've seen Turicon way too many times!

Ilykdp!

Cool!! Yeah, I certainly hope so that the film will be available in the US once. The goal would be that it will... smile
(otherwise the film will always be orderable at the new NCC site we're releasing soon)
Not Fabian is not in Face to Face, we was in the military while we were shooting so he coldn't be part of this.


Yes, you're right. The weapons Sam fires is a Blaster... Bren gives it to him. let's just say he got it from the aerial he stole wink

Yo! Sollthar,

I was looking at the Turicon funny outtakes on your website (hilarious!) and i have two questions:

1st, do you have anymore funny outtakes from any of the movies, and 2nd if you do, can you post them on alamdv or nccinema???

Thanks,

from the very begining of the opening credits the graphics look very cheezy confused no use of masking effects when the planets are going by crazy then when the movie starts and the acting is.... I don't even want to say. From there it just keeps on going downhill. The props are all plastic, the lasers fire from the guns looks like there from a bad 50's sci-fi movie (very square), The fight sequences are very inconsistant... some of the punches are no where near making contact! The space ships are totaly fake, (not to mention that the interiour is obviously a car), and the green screen is totaly inconsistant, and bad, honestly it couldn't look more fake. The story, dialoge and plot are tard and what's up with the purple suite? purple underware, come on! I will say this, I will comend you all on your drive in making such a long, and I mean long project... a few of the blood effects were pretty good, along with a few explosions. I also liked a lot of the camera angles, and some of the camera work. Oh yes and the computer voice cool biggrin But you guys have a long way to go...

Thanks! Sure, well keep posting our stuff here! smile

@DW Peters
Thank you very much! We thought about it... but it somehow got forgotten... But it isn't too wild. Turicon was very successful a many festivals so we got enough out of it.

Some of the guests are alright though. The guy above seemed fine and he was being quite constructive (If a little harsh at the beggining).

anyway,

Yeah, I thought his comment was okay. He said WHY he didn't like it and WHAT he didn' like and just expressed his opinion.

I am a guest lol are guests not supposed to comment? that was sarcasim! I wrote how I feel, that is my right! and I have written positive reviews about other shorts on this sight sure as the test, also by the same people. This one was just lame in my opinion. I don't own the program but I like the effects used in the test 1 and 2, but not very many of the ones used in this film...

Because everyone puts a lot of effort in their movies they make. And as a film student I believe that all these movies earn a lot respect from the people. The people who make these movies take their free time and spend it on making films, and thats cool. So good job on the film. Keep making more.

If a person is a "GUEST" in any situation they are expected to handle themselves with a certain amount of common sense.
You are of course entitled to your opinions but there are better ways of expressing them.

Turicon was great. Totally unbelievable. biggrin Its extremely well made and makes me very jealous. If i could pick any faults at all it would have to be the length - its a bit too long. I feel bad that that is the only thing i can moan about! Not fair! I enjor a moan now and then! wink

Turicon is a masterpiece and I loved it. Its amazing. Its Jaw-dropping from start to finish. Music was superb, effects were amazing and the characters were excellent. And the scientist was better than Jar Jar ever was! smile

What are you all complaining about? I think that *anonymous*'s

comment was unnecessary, but the whole argument on using

the name, anonymous, for negative comments is getting tired.

Turicon was great, and most people would agree, so who cares if

anonymous said one bad thing. Whomever that particular

*anonymous* was, their post obviously arose the desired reaction from

the alam dv community, and that is what is most dissappointing.

I just realised that I have not written anything about this movie!.

Anyways... It's pure 5 start material, and that's what i voted for. That you have worked 4 years on it is realy a plus. Hope that in the near future you get as famus as Peter Jacksson with his amature movie Bad Taste. (wich he worked for 3-4 years too, i think)

It pains me to point it out. Not that I could do any better but the girls ripped up arm, as good as it is and as much as it satisfies my daily bloodlust and as much as it made me want Fabian Ramseyer to kick Marco's beardy ass smile despite the fact that that was real good, has any one else noticed that even though it's her left arm that gets mashed a right hand can be seen lying nearby? Maybe it was the cyborg's hand.

golly, it seems like it's been eons since I've seen this. . .

don't remember the scene that two_gunned is talking about, but couldn't you have just horizontally flipped the shot in premiere? to make a right hand look like a left hand?
like I said, I don't remember the shot to be able to clarify if this a possibility or not. . . just an idea

well i have only watched the first part but so far im not so sure why this movie has been rated so well. i commend the 3d animations, but the movie lacks greatly in so many other aspects. the story was rather boring, i couldnt help but shake my head at some of the clothing (i thought the girl in the black t-shirt made the movie look very homemade), the main character should have carried one of the better weapons around instead of that plastic little m-16, and the doctor was way too whiney and obnoxious. well there are some other arguments i have but thats all for now...i did enjoy the head crushing though!

how come out of all the movies that I have viewed so far, none of them invovle any kind of cars??? im currently working on a movie revolving around drug lords and in it well have cars peeling out, E-brakes + j-turns etc. i mean i think that this movie could have benefited so much if it had cars in it instead of all the planes (obviously some were necesary). i mean ive welded camera mounts to attach to various parts of our cars and they all work great creating professional shots. but to focus on the positive aspects of this movie im sure that u guys spent countless hours just shooting the video, let alone all the editing and effects. and i thought many things were done well such as the shooting locations for the ship cockpit and the alien spaceship (cause finding these places must have been a huge pain) just several small thing really annoy me: when the scientist attacks the drunk, the DUMB 'button' comments, the body guards wearing the sunglasses (they're in a ship !!), and the suit of the evil alien. and why was the scientist working at a construction yard ? well i hope that this criticism has at least been constructive and i hope that Sollthar will be able to return the favor by reviewing my upcoming movie "The Last Deal" which i should finish in 5-6 weeks. later
p.s. any suggestions on where i could locate some prop guns cause i currently only have one...and is there any way to change my screename here cause i had to use my mother's credit card and alam made my screename a combo of my mom's name !!

well i finally watched the entire 2nd part of the movie. why does the main character speak so strangely? is english his first language or is this have something to do with being from the UK which i dont know about? the 2nd part was like twice as good as the first i must say. a few things: during the shooting scenes, u need to show the heroes missing the enemies with their weapons more often for realism, might want to consider using a microphone and boom next time cause it was hard to hear the actors (or at least turn the music down when necessary), and several times when the camera angles changed you could tell the dramatic difference in the background noise (u should've recorded just sound from outside for a while then dubbed it into the movie keeping the audio fluent between camera angles).what did you guys do for the part when he hangs from the steps up high? u guys really do this? or just put him in later?

Thank for the comments!


As you might have read in the describtion, this is a pretty old movie andwe do have learned a lot of things since then. smile

The part where he hangs from that high was done with a dummie and shot on another location for the closeups, wich looked exactly the same, but was only about 3 feet high.


And about the funny way some speak. We're swiss. English isn't our native language and when he started the project, only two uf us could speak english (myself and the one playng Sam) and the main actor didn't really understand what he said at the beginning. smile

It's late here and I'm very tired, so I'm probably being ungenerous, but .... I got twenty odd minutes in and gave up. A plot is more than a list of events.

There's a lot of effort gone into it, obviously. Its easy to pick holes, so I'll lay off criticising and offer a couple of suggestions instead:

Script first, always. If you've got a cast of novice or unsure actors then find other ways of delivering information toi the audience that won't stretch them.

Swearing is big and clever (and often fun), but maybe not here.

The spaceships look incongruous in the environment, and it might be time and money well spent to dress your sets and costume your cast appropriately. The "Let's do the show right here!" attitude gets you so far but, unfortunately, no further.

Edit brutally. Cut cut cut cut.

I liked the widescreen. I always like widescreen.

I gave it twenty minutes, and nothing of any interest happened. A decent script hooks you in the first two.

While explosions and gunfights are fun, they're hollow pursuits of themselves - if all they're doing is shoring up a half-baked and derivative story bereft of characterisation or interest then they're a bit pointless, in my opinion (and it is just my opinion, after all).

I write for and run a theatre company, so I'm used to immediate and direct audience feedback.

If it makes you feel any better I've had some reviews for my stage shows that'd make you cry blood (The headline "Decent actors can't make a silk purse out of this sow's ear" sticks in the mind particularly.).

I'll have the decency to watch your more recent work later, which will be a lot fairer and representative of where you are now.

I have no problem with critisism and it wouldn't make me feel better reading bad critisism about the work of someone who critisised mine.

And it's not that I'd claim Turicon a masterpiece you know, I was 16 when I started shooting this and I'm almost 24 now so I do know it's flaws very well and have enough distance to it. smile
Allthough the script isn't one of those flaws imho, I really like it, but opinions differ, so thats not a problem for me. And we got enough good response from reviewers when the film was at festivals so I can live with and respect those who don't like it. No hard feelings at all.


I can imagine that. I studied stageacting and drama at the Zuerich actors academy, so I'm used to immedeate and direct audience feedback as well. No problem. In fact, I prefer direct critisism. I mean, I have to learn... smile

solthar, is there any chance of a sequel? I think with how much your skill has evolved (even though turicon is still lightyears ahead of what I am able to do) I would love to see a "bigger budget" sequel! the characters are too good for just one movie!

just how I feel, I being Waser, still too lazy to log in

We did think about a sequel a couple of times actually... Allthough I can't say if we're ever gonna make one.

But I personally would love to do that if I have the chance, as this film was our first feature and festival breakthrough, it would deserve a sequel or a "re-imaging" someday. biggrin

Awsome biggrin!!!!!!

Although, I thought it would probably be better if you there was strong language.

Sorry for the criticism! biggrin

Heh, cool typo. biggrin

Yeah, as said before, most of the strong language was improvies by the actors. The script had less in it. Ah well...

This film is amazing!!! I cant believe that effects like the ones in this film are as good as some of the biggest hollywood blockbusters. You are an inspiration to us all Sollthar. Believe me man. You have just gained another HUGE Fan. I for one hope you make movies for years to come.

Ive noticed that this movie has 2 parts, and eac are around 50 minutes long and around 80 mb. Well I have finished my movie which is 50 minutes long and now I wish to render it so it is around this size. What options should I do to get a file size down this low?

What format do you want to use? I have compressed a 24 and a half minute movie (quicktime .mov) into 56 mb using the following settings in quicktime pro:

Sorenson 3, Millions of colors Low Quality, 29.97 fps, keyframe every 30 frames, 240x160.

IMA 4:1, 22.05 khz, mono

If you wanted to make it a bit smaller, you could set the framerate to 15 fps, and you would probably end up with a file about 60 mb in size.

I saw this movie a while back and never liked it because i was young and inoccent (gore bugged me), but now I love it.My favorite character is the scientist.Nice job with him, Solthar.The Music is great. I've been searching the forums and your website for it.The only thing i didn't like was the excessive swearing.It made some parts of the movie sound corny.

this has all been said before.I just wanted you to know that this is the best movie on fxhome.com!

WOW! It's sad for me to say that this is the first time I've seen this. I should have looked at this the moment I became a member! This movie is incredible in all aspects. The acting is great, the effects are great, the 3d is excellently portrayed, the storyline is flawless, and everything adds up. It even has a typical short romance scene just like all the other movies!

This is truly worth being on the big screen in theatres worldwide! I love your pieces of work, Marco von Moos. Congratulations on exceeding all of my expectations.

tick tick tick tick tick ... tick !

Very cool movie! 3D effects were great. The only thing that took away from the movie was the almost constant swearing.

Yeah, the swearing was improvised. We were young and stupid. We thought it was cool at the time. smile

I never really watched this movie because the poster image looks so incredibly corny, but I guess I'll definitely look at it with all the feedback its been getting. Besides, by now I've been here long enough to appreciate Sollthar's work, so... wink

Heh, it IS corny. That's what's so much fun about it. wink

This was our very first feature length film. Most of it was shor over 8 years ago. Darn, I'm getting old... crazy

have you ever thought about filming new footage for an extended cut. Like at random times you would suddenly have no hair, and we would all laugh.

I want a dvd of this!

No, this is old news and I won't spend any other minute re editing it or anything in that direction. This was great to do 8 years ago, now it's past and I'll leave it at that.
Besides, even if I wanted to, I don't have the time for it. There's my uni, there's contract work and there's NightCast. smile


There WILL be a DVD coming with the new ncc site release somewhen this year. We already completed some bonusmaterial (a 45 minute "bloopers" reel for example) and basically just wait for the new site and the new shop structure. Face to Face will be added there then too.
It's on our "to do" list. smile
