Here is a taste of "Morning Run Amok." What started out as a "little" beta test wound up consuming over three months of my life.

The actual movie is nine minutes of Moviestorm. I tried experimenting with as many film and camera techniques as I could think of. I got busted in three separate locations while video taping and photographing backdrops.

The project is now in the musical scoring stage, so I figured while I wait for Overman to work his magic (and then for gToon to master and enhance the entire audio) I would put together this one minute trailer.

It's a cavalcade of stars! The cast is huge; 16 actors all told.

To watch a high resolution DivX version of the trailer go to www.flingfilms.com

Here it is at YouTube:

Wow, a veeeerrry slick trailer, quite impeccable! looks intriguing too, well done all round.
I was particularly impressed with the attention to detail, with the blurred video footage in the bg, you're a very thoughtful creator.

Can't wait to see this. Loved the back grounds in the trailer. Moviestorm and other visual media seem to blend together very well.

Thank you all for checking it out and commenting!

I can't agree more, mrjoyce. Part of the fun I'm having in the final phase is matching color and contrast between photographed backdrops and MS facades. I'm disappointed with the quality output from my video camera, so I have kept its usage to a minimum.

I used an overall film grain effect for the trailer to compensate for the color matching phase not being completed, but I don't think the movie will have it (hopefully won't need it).

This movie is going to be the basis for the series of tutorials I plan to create. I'm really excited by the music Overman has come up with. I can't wait to hear the completed score!! tongue.gif

This looks really, really great Fleef. I'm totally stoked to see the final version. The tutorials will be a great asset to the community, as well. When do you suppose the final edit will be uploaded? Soon, I hope. smile.gif

I really liked it. Very cool camera work and backdrops. The grocery store, board room and cubicles look great.

Can't wait to see the rest!
My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

May the Muses inspire you today.

would it help if we can deliver lighting, depth of field, more content, more characters, more animations, more sound and ... oh, wait, you are an artist and we should contstrain and starve you to ensure you are at your most creative. Sorry I mentioned it.

this is one GREAT trailer! My wife is a marathon runner (recovering from foot surgery) so I know EXACTLY how crazy people get if they cannot RUN RUN RUN every day!

hehe! I'm dead set against laziness and complacency, but starving is overrated. 8)

Project update: Overman has finished the score. It is frakkin' awesome! gToon is now busy cleaning up, balancing and enhancing the foley, VO and music and mastering the final audio mix. I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

Hey, Fleef - hope everything is okay with your film. Still in the works? (No doubt Gtoon has been working on it steadily. I'm still awaiting the release anxiously - just like a new, summer blockbuster!!) :mrgreen:

Thanks for the interest. Everything is on track and we're almost ready to release.

My role has been pretty much reduced to watching the oven timer tick as it bakes at 350; its aroma filling the kitchen and making my stomach growl. :-o

Fleef,

Just saw the full version of Morning Run Amok over at Machiniplex http://www.machiniplex.com/.

Looks like another big winner. I really liked the use of the backdrops as sets. They were very clear and added to the experience. I also liked the camera work very much.

Your films in Moviestorm are so superior to the other programs. Congratualtions again!

Just watched the full film Fleef. Too many parts of this impressed me to mention them all but the standard of chromakeying really struck me, the dialogue, the acting and Phil's music.
