I hope they accept it.
And for the therapy thing i think thats true, for example; say a women is a really good singer but has stage fright, she is scared they wont like her, well using moviestorm she could just make a animated figure sing with her voice and she could see how much people like her thus improving her confidence.
Very good software i love it.

Also some basic modding re-texturing etc so they can get enthused about their own creations.- have some blank ready made templates for them to play with.
Lastly i thought it could also be aimed at the goverment int' Citizenship drive ...ms could be used to act out and show proper and improper behaviour bullying both mental and physical etc ...as well as many other social issues.
oh and a quick thought on the GUNS issue i think it would not be blocked as it's not a game but a tool for making movies (ART FORM) and like shakespear's plays they wouldn't get banned for swords and sharp objects,poisons etc
Like when i studied Drama at college although swearing was banned in college, if we thought a dramatic production needed and warranted the "F" or even the "C" word we did.....we were neva blocked by the college as it wasn't done purely to shock. We also had various weapons in productions as well .
but tbh things may have changed it was a while back......i do hope education hasn't become less liberal in the arts. :S

Interesting area to explore - what sort of things are you thinking of?

I must say there was silence in the room whilst the movie played and led to a good discussion and written work afterwards. The film was nothing special just a character narrating a leaflet I found on the web with a series of photographs in the background.
My point is the fact that it ws something new and unexpected the class (or should I say most of year 7 it was shown for 5 lessons) where rivited and even though it was my own voice used, again their attention was fixed to the screen and there was a difinate sense of the all impotant WOW factor in the room.
I will definatly be using Moviestorm within the classroom for future presentations, as the proof is in the pudding that it has worked.
