Pitch your movies
Impress potential investors, partners, studios and audiences with a rough cut of your movie that clearly shows your vision better than a script ever can. A short trailer or even a complete demo movie is great for Kickstarter or other crowd funding routes.
Test your screenplays
One of the hardest parts of the screenwriter’s craft is learning how the words on the page will come out on the screen. Moviestorm allows you to try out your scripts and see how well they work when they’re filmed. It’s a handy tool for writer/directors, and it’s a great way for writers to increase their understanding of what directors and editors need.

Film complex scenes you can't do in live action
Moviestorm enables you to shoot scenes that would be impractical on a student budget, such as crowd scenes, exotic and iconic locations, dangerous stunt and action sequences, or simply closing off a city street. No hassle with permits, safety, or logistics - just film everything in a virtual world.
Develop visual storytelling skills
Moviestorm simplifies the filmmaking process so you can concentrate on telling your story. Spend your time planning, shooting and editing, not wrestling with complex animation and 3D modelling. By taking control of the whole movie from start to finish, you develop a deeper appreciation for how all the different elements work together.
Build up your portfolio
Assemble a collection of movies and clips that show what you can do. Demonstrate your understanding and appreciation of what’s involved in making different types of film, and show your familiarity with many different parts of the film process. Moviestorm enables you to build up a large portfolio even if you are working primarily solo.
