In recent weeks, Moviestorm Towers has been echoing to the sound of Chicago-based rock’n'roll chiptune from I Fight Dragons. (To quote the band’s Web site, for those of you not in the proverbial ‘know,’ ‘chiptune’ is new music created on ‘obsolete’ video game ‘soundcards’ such as the Nintendo Gameboy.) This isn’t our usual brand of music, we’ll be honest, but it’s grown on us.

Why?

Well, we’ve teamed up with Consequence of Sound, one of America’s leading music blogs, to bring you a contest with a unique prize. Use Moviestorm to make a video for Working, from the brand new album Kaboom! by I Fight Dragons, and submit it by December 21. The winning entry will be the official video for the track! And there will be Moviestorm prizes for the top five as well.

Now, we get that you don’t want to submit a video made with the watermarked trial version of Moviestorm. You want your video to look as good as possible. And we get that you probably don’t want to buy a $200 animation tool just to enter a contest. So, for contest entrants only, we’ve made the full version of Moviestorm completely free for the duration of the contest. Go to the contest Web site and you’ll get a code that unlocks the whole of Moviestorm until the end of December.

Good luck - we’re really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Full rules and instructions, and download the track free, at http://consequenceof...-dragons-video/

That is a terrific idea and it will get more new users involved in Moviestorm. I don't have the time to enter myself but I certainly support everyone else who does enter.

So, Moviestorm only? Can we use other editing/adding text programs?

This looks like a fun contest but I've got the full version and am currently preoccupied. Besides, this is a contest tailor made for School kids with limited funds.

Best of luck to all who enter...Hmmm...That's not very realistic is it.smile.gif

Best of luck to the five who need it most....Yup...Much better. wink.gif

hrm could have sworn i left a post here

I am trying to find out how I can take part in this competition it looked kind of fun. I didn't buy the 200 dollar moviestorm content thingy because I was low on funds and so only have the 75 dollar package and wanted to unlock the rest to make the video as said in the contest offering you can unlock for the duration. I downloaded the song and tried to find a way to input the key to unlock the content, but there was no way. Can someone tell me how I can unlock the content to make the video?

Thanks

This is just a guess but it looks like you'll need to log out then log in as if you don't have an account.

There is a check box that lets you enter the code.

I don't know if you'll be able to use your current account or create a whole new one for this but I do know that after its all done you should be able to login under your original account and everything will work as it does now.

Its also possible Ben or Amos will see your post and be able to tick the unlock key for you.

yeah it doesnt look like present users of moviestorm are allowed to participate in this unfortunately but knowhere on the information does it say this.

I contacted support they gave me all kinds of advice on how to add music lol but offered no help on activating the full moviestorm copy

oh well it looked fun but I guess I can't participate since the package i purchased is really just for blogging lol

thanks for replying smile.gif

Hi Urbanlamb
I've added the other packs to your account for a month; you should be able to make music videos for the contest now, as if you had started an account with the promo code.

I think your support message didnt have your username, and Alex was not able to do that without it.

Is this open to all moviestorm users? IOW, are customers who purchased your product excluded from entry?

I would also like to join the contest but I don't know where I should enter that code to take advantage of the full version of Moviestorm. If I start MS there is only asked to enter username and password but I don't find any check box that lets you enter the code. In addition, I also have the same question as 162, whether it is permitted to use another program/software than MS for editing and finishing of the product (music video) or is there such thing as complete freedom for the completion? I mean that only the images should be filmed in Moviestorm? I hope my questions are clearely because my english isn't perfect unsure.gif

Thanks

While we're asking questions, one more: could you post the lyrics? I have searched their site, but no go. There is one phrase that totally baffles me. Thanks.

Found them. (Got them on my first search.)

Hey, lay low
You know
That everybody has to care
You see
That we
All feel the same way you do

Lie to me 'cause honestly
I don't believe that you believe
The lines you try to feed to me like
"Keep your head down, happy isn't free"

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me

So I stay in my seat
Try to catch eyes with those around me
But they all stare vacantly on forward
Toward a future I can't see

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me

How can I let this go?
Know only what I need to know?
Can I be only what they tell me I should show?
Oh no

'Cause all the boys on the morning train can see
And all the girls with the empty eyes agree
All this working
It's not working
They graduated with a Big Ten college degree
They're frustrated 'cause it's not how they thought it would be
Sleeping, working
It's not working for me

Okay, so, other questions that REALLY need to be answered:
  • Where exactly can people get the full verson temporailiy?
  • Can we use other software alongside Moviestorm? (Such as editing programs?)

Thanks, 162. Go to the contest site. In the How to Get Started Section, right click on "Working" link & save as target (instead of launching player) ... downloads as an MP3.
