So here it is after a long long time in the making, I have finally finished my latest movie, I can't remember how many times it had to be re-rendered out of Moviestorm but now its done. I have poured a lot of effort into this movie and I would like to know what you all think of it.

P.S. Thank you to Kristine Browne, Phil Browne, Frank Fox and Goofparade for their wonderful work on this production.

Very amazingly well done movie, davidwww! You know, that made me wonder where people go after death. Nice special effects, such as the fiery background and abaddon's fiery eyes.

This seems to be the best you've done so far. Nice job!

Great job David. The writing and voice acting are two things that immediately jump out at me. All the special FX in the world won't carry a movie without them. Congrats to you and your actors.

One thing though, and it's more my own personal taste, but I really prefer watching films in a widescreen format. Could be that I'm just spoiled by my 60" WS HDTV though.

Very well done. Worth the time and effort. Great use of MS and FXHome. I really enjoy watching films from the Pioneer group. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Seconded! I'll think twice before using a gun to solve divorce disputes in future.

Really well done, though!

Excellent work, David! I especially liked some of the camera work. The searching camera in the opening and the subtle pull back when Abaddon is about to stand up. Lots of things to commend here, but others have done so already. Great job.

NOTE TO VIEWERS: Heed the warning at the beginning - you probably shouldn't watch this at work, unless you have on headphones! smile.gif

I'm really excited to see this, David. I'll have to wait until I get home tonight, though...

EDIT: Finally got to watch it - great work!! (And turns out I should have kept watching earlier; I was past the "not with your door open" moments...)

I've gotta echo what others have said - very well done and worth the time and effort you obviously put into it. An interesting and thought-provoking premise, too.

I am so pleased that you have all enjoyed this movie, I really worked hard on this one, trying to squeeze out as much emotion from the limited MS gestures was quite hard (well for me it was) and I really had to think a long time over, how I was going to show the characters frozen when JC turned up and having so many subtle gestures on the time line slowed my computer down to a crawl at times it made it almost impossible to work and because of the slow downs, I kept finding things I wasn't happy with once it had be rendered that I would have to change it and then re-render it again to check the results but in the end it came out quite well.
After Life came about because I wanted to show people that I don't just make strange comedy flicks like Zombie Domestica or What Ever Happened to Storm Starr and hopefully when we get some more weapons I will be making another movie called The Interrogation (working title) which is an extended story from one of my earlier movies made with The Movies.

Regards
David

David, I have a reasonably nice PC setup with some slow(ish) RAM and have the same problems with massive slowdown. Unlike you though, I can't stand rendering, examining, going back and fixing, and then doing it all over again.

I've practically stopped using MS and am just writing a script until I can afford to by a new motherboard and add more RAM.

Excellent work, David! I really like this cut, and had fun on your project. Thanks for having me in it (and not killing me off this time... although, technically, I was already dead) smile.gif.
The forecast is - MOVIESTORM!

I know what you mean, its a pain when it slows right down, but I was determined to get as much emotion out of the gestures as I could and every time a rendered scene showed up some thing I would almost not do it over but I did, and thanks to some sound advice from Fleef and Goofparade I got to make extra scenes to add to the movie thanks guys:x
but seriously their helpful suggestions went a long way to making the whole movie that much better.:mrgreen:

The best film I have seen on Moviestorm so far.

Moviestorm is really coming together nicely now.

I entered After Life into the Bitfilm Festival but I just received an email saying it didn't get selected for the voting stage and to try again next year :cry: Oh well, hopefully next year I can make some thing that will be good enough to be selected.
