I checked out your website, and you have lots of cool music there! On top of that, I see that you also made a feature-length indie film! Awesome!

Why no mention of the $50-60 entry fee?

Pretty cool, very impressive!

I've looked into Hitfilm myself, but the short (and longer) films that I work on have fewer special effects as I've gotten older, but I used to do a lot of stop-motion and miniature effects, rarely anything even approaching Hitfilm level! When I worked on "real" movies it was making things like rubber monsters and fake trees for sci-fi horror films, and that was back in the 1980s, before CGI computer effects took over the FX field. ...

Posted by Vokar on 5/8/2017 7:37:47 PM
Microsoft killing off MOVIE MAKER and LIVE MOVIE MAKER (about which this web domain was likely created to promote and support) is the likely cause here. Most folks seem to have moved on to other editing software and online tools, and considering Microsoft's apathy and ignorance about their own software, I can't blame people for moving on.
5.Re: this website???
Posted by Vokar on 5/17/2017 2:37:20 AM
I agree, but as long as the software still works on a Windows 10 PC, there's no need to stop using it unless extra features and effects are needed. I still use WMM with the Pixelan Spice Packs I purchased years ago. Oh, I use other free or inexpensive software when necessary, but I still enjoy the MS video editing software.

Use whatever works is a good policy.

Cheers!

I left a new reply below. Bottom line: use whatever works!

I must admit I've grown to enjoy the ease of Windows Live Movie Maker for quick, easy projects, over the original Movie Maker versions. (Never thought I'd admit to that!)

8.Re: There's Lava in my house
Posted by Vokar on 4/8/2017 4:49:10 AM
Hey, that's looks cool! It reminds me a bit of the lava effects in some sci-fi and disaster movies from the 1960s and 1970s. Not perfect, but very effective! Keep up the good work!

I've never used a green screen, so from what I've seen, this looks better than most of the video I've seen done this way by home video filmmakers.

I may not be back for a while, so I wish you good luck!

I don't think as many people come here anymore, other than lurkers and spambots, etc. I only visit once a month or so these days. As for your videos, they're fast and funny. I bet the kids enjoy doing them (and seeing them).

Cheers!

The photos clearly show the various rooms, and the music is pleasant and a bit melancholy. Sad that the facility will be demolished soon. Not sure about how it would work on mobile, however. Looks good for its purpose.

Question: where did the song come from? Sounds familiar but I can't place the artist/group.
13.Re: Movie for my Website
Posted by Vokar on 8/11/2016 7:35:11 AM
Yes, the song works well with the video.

One possible concern with your video: If the music you used is copyrighted, you might get a "takedown" order from the artist or their representatives.

There are some good sources of free, non-copyrighted music that are okay to use without any potential repercussions. For example, the music of Kevin MacLeod, which is used by many YouTube video makers:

Just thought you might want to know. ; ) ...

Having fun and entertaining others are the keys to success, especially on YouTube I think. (The filmmakers are all on YouTube these days; there was nothing like it back in the day.) The outdoor filming adds a lot. Fast moving, not too long. Silly, yes!

Posted by Vokar on 8/3/2016 2:12:55 AM
It's funny and fast-moving, the two lead players are good actors, they play off each other well, and look alike (brothers?). The only real issue I had with the film was the dialogue sound recording being hard to understand at times in a confined space (behind the counter, the buzzing noise, etc.). Good (silly!) work, especially for your first film!

Posted by Vokar on 8/8/2016 11:00:50 PM
Hey, my early films were silly too (back in the day when I used Super 8 film)! Anyway, have fun and make more films! It's the best way to learn.

Posted by Vokar on 6/28/2016 8:36:48 PM
Very nice, Droopy! Smooth-flowing animation, terrific sets and miniatures, the characters are perfect, and I love the "small" touches, like the hoop earring and the crab. Details like that are great fun to spot. Music, voices, everything...Excellent work overall!

Cheers! :)

Hi there!

I've been in a funhouse like that myself, but it was about 40 years ago when I was going to Film School, lol! We all had to make our own film in 16mm at the beach, so one of the other guys filmed me in the mirror to make me look like my face was a meter long!

I rather liked Mr. Raccoon myself, especially his vest/jacket too! But Fernando was good too.

I forgot to mention the waves...I was really stunned to see that! Super well done! ...

Posted by Vokar on 5/27/2016 5:27:57 AM
Looks and sounds great. I like the counterpoint of the video and music...cool contrast. I use music that way in my own films...quiet videos with tense music.

Oh, and liked the cat! ;)

Posted by Vokar on 6/1/2016 6:05:31 AM
Most of my films since I started making films in 1970 were produced on 16mm and Super 8 film, and the only one I could afford to transfer to video is no longer online...the friend who had it on his YouTube channel closed his channel a while ago. Currently, I am working on a "no-budget" feature-length sci-fi film on digital video - my final film project - and I will put it online next spring...but there will be a "teaser trailer" online in August. I will have a YouTube ...

SPFreely:

I replied to your other post titled "Greetings Movie Makers" elsewhere on this forum, but my message in that topic could not be posted without approval by a mod...which didn't happen. That being the case, I think the mods have left this board to die, just as Microsoft has left Movie Maker to die. As for me, I will use the software as long as it works, and I still check these boards from time to time.

Cheers
