I made this movie a day when I was bored. I used several programs: AlamDV, Pinnacle Studio 8, Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects. I did this movie on my own. I play all the roles and I have made all the effects...etc...
Hope you like it.

Damm impressive.

all on your own, I always admire that. smile well done.

fx's we excellently used.
music was fine, had no problems with it.
shame there wasn't a start and end to it, ( bit more of a reason for the clones )
Great framing of the shots and I think you could become a great director.

There wasn't anything that I thought was especially impressive other than the use of the effects. Especially the gun shots. Those looked really nice. What'd you do to get that look? And also, even though it was only one hit, the lightsaber "fight" because it's hard to fight yourself, when there's nothing else there to fight with.

Yeah as Aculag said, there was nothing that was never done before and that many others actully can do, althought a great use of effect, all of them were used very good.

the "story" was pretty slow... or maybe its just becouse im.... never mind.

Effects...lightsabers were mediocre, slo mo gunshots were a ok, but that cut in half lighted torso effect was just stupid.

Sound...mediocre.

Editing...the beggining was a vast many of the same shots but in different locations.
Music...overused.

FINALLY NOT ANOTHER instant action from you. This is very pleasing to me you have nooooo idea. you get one star just for that. But now as for this short of yours. One thing I can't stand is when people use the song from the matrix reloaded soundtrack and put it in a scene that doesn't have enough energy. That song is supposed to be a high energy song. And this was very low energy. Too much leisurly walking around. you did use the FX pretty good. But the light sabers weren't too good. But other than that all i can say is that once again you have no plot.


PEACE OUT.


3 stars

This was pretty creative, but one thing i dont get ! Why do u have to walk around like an idiot while u can make real action movie. Like others said dont use matrix or other good action movies soundtracks in your own movie if it doesnt have enough action. sleep
The editing was oke but the lightsaber can be made better.

But this is good cuz from practise u learn! cool

Well at least you are branching out from the instant action films.

The quality of your movies are top notch. I love the look, very crisp and clean looking image.

Your sound is really good as well. Even though you used the Matrix score, thank GOD! you did not use the matrix soundtrack of songs.

The effects were nice although the red lightsaber was a little bendy when it charged up at first.

I did feel that the chase at the beginning could have been trimmed a bit more. Went on a little too long I thought.

Nice flat by the way smile

All in all good effort and I think you should start trying to write a screenplay for a short film and try making it because from what you're doing you could probably create a good project

Better effects and thank god for no more Instant Action films. Although, it's a shame you couldn't go to a friend's house because you had to use that same one again... neutral If that had been changed, I would've given it another star. I also have to agree about that music, time to find something new to try.
But hey, it's a definite improvement over the last one you did.

Ok, its amusing though hardly in the top ten??? The effects are well used but don't look very convincing. The acting is poor and the film is much too long for what is basically an sfx test. You need to use more interesting camera angles, quicker, faster cuts etc. Nicely executed though and I'm sure your next project will benefit from the experience gained by this one.

Excellently done, the best bored-so-what-the-heck-I'll-make-a-movie movie. One guestion though. How did you get the top-to-bottom intro and exit? Definately 5 stars.
