I’m not against violence in a movie. I didn’t like this one mostly because the shooting was the only thing that really happened, and it’s sooo short, we don’t even find out why he did it.

Unfoldingmetal, update your codec. Works everytime (well, most of the time). I assume Divx was used.May 12, 2003 at 3:26 am #2688
I enjoyed this vignette as it stands but it seems a lot of people are poking for a complete film. I will tell you this: Do what you want. If you make a dozen of these, give it a name and leave it at that.
Your visual eye is very accurate, as already noted. The lights in the window and sinking of my gut were instantaneous. This is a complete short with a solid ending.

I am proof you can make many movies, and not stray from violence once…wow, Im sounding a bit too proud:oops: The happy music gives it a nice twist. Sadly, man is twisted, and the music works well with it. I agree with flash it was to short. Its to late now, but maybe a chase/shootout/standoff between police? From the animation I saw, it was very nice. Keep everything like that, and you’ll be in business.May 12, 2003 at 7:23 am #2696
Answer 1: Why the film was too short. I completed this on the weekend, and was more of an experiment to see how i could manipulate the footage i took with the camera, instead of creating a story. So, i tried different sequences, and so ended up with this (im afraid) short and (perhaps) sick and twisted film.
Answer 2: thankyou for your comments on my visual clarity. I use a 4 megapixel Olympus cam Perhaps thats why. Also, Lighting wasn’t very constant, (have you noticed that during a shot, the sun moves behinds clouds etc. which changes the amount of light in the room, which then affects the animation.)
Im thinking about getting curtains for this room, we don’t have any yet, and then using artificial lighting.
Answer 3: The music is taken from the cowboy bebop the movie soundtrack. I was meaning to make something to go in time with the music, and only just remembered this song when i was editing the film
Answer 4: Yes, i did encode the movies with Divx, i dislike encoding them into mpeg, which i absolutely loathe. because of the size/picture quality. Divx gives a good compromise.
This site should take on a more uniform approach to encoding the movies.May 12, 2003 at 7:40 am #2697
I just noticed that the two sale signs said “Beer $50″ and “Cow $5.” Those are hillarious! They make no sense! I also noticed the light on the sliding door detector changing colors when it detects the killer. Little details like that can add so much to a film.
Im glad you noticed! all the effort wasnt wasted i see!May 12, 2003 at 10:46 am #2705
That was Hillarious!!
I just love that smooooooooooooooth animation.Just amazing.May 12, 2003 at 4:10 pm #2713
Well everything is almost said by others.
I like this quickie, it’s clever done, with some nice picture quality.
Keep up the good work.May 12, 2003 at 4:28 pm #2714
