This is my first movie at FXHome - Cinema.

Terminator - TS is a movie i made on a weekend with friends of mine, followed by 2 weeks of postproduction.

There are scenes that we could have made better, with more time at our hands and a real screenplay.

There´s not much speech in the movie, but we synchronized it to english language because original it´s in german language.
I bet guys from US and UK will laugh there asses off. smile

I know the laws off AlamDV-Cinema but there is a
little bit off male nudity at the beginning of the movie, because
you cannot show peoples, arriving from the future in undertrousers
in a film called Terminator... smile)

Enjoy !

aka Nachtfalke

PS: Directors Cameo: The guy at the beginning, drinking beer and the guy the Terminator throw out of the car.

It is nice. One comment, in the wood the terminator should have shot the woman, his primary target, not the man first. But very good.

Thanks for the comment.

In the eyes of the terminator, the soldier was far more dangerous
for him than the woman. So he thought, first killing the man, and
then go hunting the helpless girl is much more fun smile

Lol yeah, shadu think of terminator one. I tell ya was a nice little flick. i must commend you on youre framing, was really nice. i think that is ur best qaulity. Some really nice framing here, i loved it. ONE thing that runied it a bit for me, was the diagetic sound well in this case non diagetic, the dubbed over dialouge. It was like a king fu movie, at frist it was pretty funny, but then started to take a different route to the seriousness of the film. it then started to get a little anoying to me, just certain sounds. just the guy who was rescuing her. His voice to me somehow didnt sound like it went with him. lol sounded like dont know if u have seen the advert for that beer, not sure how u spell it :s groch, with the guy "ITS NOT READY YET". But no a wonderful film i really enjoyed it. Good luck with ur next piece

Hey, thanks for the review.

I know our syncro is not state of the art smile

We are all austrians, we speak german as our tongue language, so i think
we are not first choice for dubbing movies in english. smile

But the next sync in english will be better...hope so *hehe*

That was pretty good biggrin

The whole movie was a little to bright, Nice to actully see a Terminator where they are nude at the begining, Thums up for that ( in not a gay way) The dubbing wasn't the best, but i know how hard it is to speak good english!
The Explotion in the end was cool, but way to big, you should have used some other effect for the rocket luncher. anyway. good!

Next time use subtitle. I think it will be better. Next week we will made our first movie. It will be in french and i will subtitle it in english for the net. I thnik subtitle is good because you keep the original voice (with emotion...) even if you can understand the dialogue.

I don't mind the bad english, because I'm not getting sound at all. I'll try some stuff and get back to you. LOOKS good though. the lighting in the first shot is nice, but when it goes back to that later, it's much darker.

Well done on your movie, I think that a lot of time and effort has been put into the movie. biggrin Also has anyone seen that show Ali G? Well on that program there is this thing with this dude called Borat, he comes over to England to learn there ways and so forth, I just thought that the guy in this movie sounds just like that dude. Well.....well done and congratulations on your movie.

Hi !

Whats wrong ?

Which Version you have downloaded ?

High or low ?

Do you have a Mac ?

If Yes ! New Divx for mac ?

Which player do you use ?

I use MediaPlayer or Realplayer and it works perfect for me.

That was pretty cool
Im going to do a terminator fan film after i have FINALLY got this star trek film out of the way its taking me ages at this rate i'll never get it done
and i liked this.
It had a feel about it like the first film, only thing i had problems with was the voice overs, maybe you could of just put subtitles?
and some of the sounds seemed a little off but maybe that was just my player other then that i liked it

I have a question... Where's the end? It stopped at 9mins. After all the trouble I had, I'm not sure what the problem could be now. WMA9 didn't work and in Divx Player (latest) it stopped at 9mins. What am I to do next?

Have you downloaded the whole thing ?

Sorry, but i think the problem lies in your system....

What did you encode with? What is the compression of vid and audio?
Yes I downloaded the entire 105MB file and I have never had a problem viewing a video from here. Don't be so quick to judge... unsure

i know that it wont work with out DIVX but the thing comes with all this spyware that sends your links to a stupid company called GATOR/GAIN.

I much rather not see the movie, no offence, or get another version than install all this crap on my computer! W/E U DO! DONT GET DIVX UNLESS YOU PLAN TO PAY! AND STILL, BE SURE THAT THE JUNK ISNT ON IT! I AM WANTING TO SHOOT ALL THESE PEOPLE OF GATOR/GAIN.

A wise warning...

DONT DOWNLOAD DIVX!! twisted twisted twisted

If you hate the Gator spyware stuff that comes with the free version of Divx, do the following:

1) Get ZoneAlarmPro and install it.
2) Once in the Tutorial settings - set it to ask you when something wants access to the internet.
2) When you restart your machine, ZA will pop-up asking for "Gain_3202.exe" or "Gain_trickler_3202.exe" to have access to the internet. Just click NO and Don't Ask Me Again.

Now, it'll never be able to send information out and pop-up ads will be forever gone. Simple, huh? wink

Hehe.. pretty cool smile Maybe a bit too slow in some cases, but that's just me.. I want lot of action wink

I think the german accent english was cool, cause Arnold kinda sound that way.. And yeah, I agree with Andreas, the nude terminators were really cool.. hehe..

Kinda weird he just came up from nowhere.. if there were lighting, there would have been something nearby litten up by it.. smile

Hehe.. never mind, kinda cool.. smile

We have a terminator in our movie too.. stay tuned.. very soon smile

This movie is pretty cool but the terminator just appeared out of nowhere. I would of liked to see some blood when you shot the guy. I have a question, did you really shoot the beggining of the movie nude?

And after viewing the bit where the Terminator comes out of nowhere and shoots the soldier first?? I'm sorry, threat or no threat, she would've been killed first. Priority no.1! And once she's dead, the Terminator doesn't care if the soldier then destroys him. Simple rules.

Yes you are right, that´s a big movie mistake smile

@alamDVer
The guy who gets killed at the beginning is me.
I don´t shoot at anyone smile
You are right, we should had use blood effects, and yes
the two "actors" were really nude at the beginning of the movie.

not trying to be strange...but:

i know u said why u had the nudity -- but really, was it just an excuse to show off some stuff in your movie? there is nothing wrong, but i was curious...hehe..also, this look like it was done in your backyard or sumthing, what did the neighbours think of you walkin around buck naked?


hah...in other words...it wasnt needed...you could have done it the same with just a guy dressed up in jeans and a leather coat. It wouldnt make much of a diffrence...except that it had no nudity.

Andrew, I think you're way off. It's the classic opening of a Terminator film. When we see a terminator travel through time, like human organics, they're naked. Hence the reason for the nudity.
I don't see what the fuss is about. confused It was a good way of getting a kind of credibility to the film as well. It sets a tone...

Adam.
